In for 2. The bounce made me do it. No, I was probably going to do it anyway. But now I'm in. so, yippee!

Especially looking forward to the mystery bottles.

And I'm hoping that according to the Summer Shipping rules, this will not ship this week, but wait till next Monday. it's supposed to be 99 here the next two days, meaning it will be over 100 along the stretch of I-5 North from California which the UPS truck travels.

Any South Floridian wooters out there? I would love to be part of a tasting...

Actually, no. If you go back to SB's original message, he actually used "Hoovers". No woot filter involved.

I've always disliked the term sky dive. Sky is kind of a romantic notion of the atmosphere. I like the term Tropospheric Drop. Or Tropospheric Plummet. Ooooooh, Tropospheric Tumble. That's the one I like

Enjoy! I did my first tandem jump in 2000. It was fun. I did it. And that's all I ever need to do. I have more items on my list to do. The toughest part for me was that first step. And the landing wasn't too fun since the guy was a foot shorter than I.

Actually on Woot I would think the term would be dysons or roombas, as in it dysons to be you.

With all the stats they keep, I wonder what % of this offer's buyers were first time wine.wooters who went for 3.

Congrats Peter, though I am astounded this took this long to sell out. Of course 4,000 bottles of juice sold in three days isn't so bad.

Okay where's the other rats. There should be a total of 6 out there, and we've heard from TWO. We're definitely missing some rattage.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Not really predictions, but hopes -

Marsanne, Sauv Blanc, and maybe Piqnique. I would love to see white port, but I highly doubt it. (Maybe would hate to see it, since I bought two while in CA, and it would come out cheaper on woot.)

Mystery white? I think not.

I will be glad to be wrong on both white port and mystery bottle.

I would really enjoy a port tonight. That would be nice. And since there has only been one port offering, I think it would be fair.

Again, we see the problem with the short timespan. People who do not ask not to be rats should be prepared to be one. Slackers!

I seriously doubt that WD would forget that. I don't think you are to blame for the lack of reports. And even if you were, you would only represent 25% of the tardiness; three more would still be out there.

WTG on the sell out SB...but it's not like any of us didn't see it coming.

As for a guess to the new offer, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's not going to be a Wellington offer at all. They don't have the time to offer us new wine...they're still labeling 1000+ bottles of the quasi-Duke.

Maybe a food-related offering is coming up next.

And the path to drunken poverty continues... Java's Stash at CT
