I caved! I tried so hard not to but visiting these forums only made the temptation worse. I told myself I would wait until the end of the year but look at me now.
It was sold out online all morning so I thought "Great, this means I shouldn't get it even though I decided I was going all in." and somehow after a few more attempts, I was able to place an order sucessfully. I take it as it was meant to be 😇
