All the parts are ordered finally, what do you guys do while waiting?

I just clicked the order button, rather than discussing my purchases... what do you guys do when waiting for parts? Do you have any superstitions or traditions? (Ie: praise Gaben, worship your brand to hope for the best overclock, be a fanboy for a day, idk I'm just thinking of random stuff) You guys must be doing something when being so anxious because this is unbearable.

Track the packages more often than a nun prays during Lent.

XD I knew it was a good idea to get the package tracking.

I know it doesn't make the package acttually get here faster, but my brain thinks it does

or you get to rage at how the package made it to your town at 8am and it takes them 3 days to get it to your door.

On my first build I sat down and wrote out step by step exactly what I'd be doing. Everything from unboxing to where I'd put the empty bags and boxes. When I was finished I knew exactly how many bowls I wanted to store screws in, where all my parts and parts boxes would go, and what order I would do everything.

I also thought about all the drivers, monitoring software, and stability test software I would want to use then downloaded the install files onto a flash drive so that I wouldn't have to wait for downloads on build day.

That is very clever, sadly I don't have any flash drives or spare disks around. I will list everything out and do many of the other things you described.
