Can I fudge the Eurail purchase?

I didn't get my Eurail pass before I left. Now I have a surprise week off and I'd really like one. Will I run into any problems if I buy one, have it sent to my hometown in Canada, and have my parents send it back to me in France? I have 17 days before it needs to be in my hands.

I believe I can get the pass to my body on time if I buy it within the next day and use premium shipping options. If you think this might not work or foresee any problems with this, I'd really like to hear.
What I more want to know is: are there any roadblocks or red-tape type things that might stop me from being able to do this? I can't get the Interrail pass, since it won't work in my "home country" and I want to travel in France, where I reside for the next couple of months. So I have to get the Eurail pass, which can ship to North America and hopefully be shipped back to me quickly. Is there anything I have to have had done to the Eurail pass before leaving for Europe that would prevent me from doing what I've described?
Thank you so much for your help!
