All the ebay orders, the awesome Surly Pacer frame, and a bunch of Velo Orange parts are all collected in a box in my living room. Here are some pics:
Japanese newspaper packing for the frame shipped from Rivendell - nice that they re-use all of the packing materials from their Japanese parts suppliers. Also, thanks to the guys at Rivendell for doing me a favor shipping the (non-Rivendell) frame to me.

Dr. Chocolate is very skeptical of all of this business.
