Sunny wrote me on Christmas day to let me know that my impressions had arrived in their lab.
My 8.A is sounding better and better everyday. :D I love how the dark violet shell looks purple under some light conditions then reddish in others. I seem to lose seal if I open my mouth to eat something like a sandwhich though. I hope hearing microphonics when chewing, walking, etc. is normal though..
That's not microphonics; that's bone conduction. That's what you get when you plug your ears, even simply with your fingers.
