Including the stuff I bought this weekend, had delivered to my parent's home from wine bid last Friday, and jumping on Ty's wine and the TO mixed batch I have added 3.25 cases of wine to my cellar in just a few days. I didn't need 2 more bottles especially when I still have 1 sitting around AND I could potentially be unemployed next week.

Awesome news about the cruise. When are you guys going?




I can share some of the 4 bottles I already have. Which is why I could skip the Little offer. I been good boy, only getting the Ty.

And I'm sure Clayfu and I can find some nice Thunderbird for you ....

And here I was going to see if you needed anything from Scott Harvey club that ships next month. Guess I shouldn't tempt you then .....

Hockey this Olympics has been awesome. Girlfriend is nervous that there might be a Slovakia v. USA final game. I can just see us sitting on opposite ends of the couch staring daggers at each other holding tiny flags for our respective countries.

As for all the well wishes, thanks everyone but I will be fine. I have enough wine to last me over a year if (heaven forbid) I was suddenly forced to stop buying.

Plus there's always Plan Z...move back in with my parents.

Their stuff is really fantastic. A friend bought my girls a huge assortment of baby items and they've just grown out of them. It washed great and is very sturdy.
They only have 0/3 and 3/6 mos left tho

Haier is AWFUL. Nothing but bad experience with the brand, their service gets lemon juice in the eye, their products suck.

Has anyone ever figured out why sucks gets filtered, but suck doesn't? Or is it just that whimsy is meant to be part of the charm?

I can't remember. I thought I might've but I can't find a confirmation PM anywhere like I usually keep.

Oh no, I remember. Someone offered it to me and I got happy about it and then Sparky whined and I told the person to be fair to offer it to J-Dub or Sparky or Imagine first since they had all asked before I did. Dunno what happened to it after that.

Yes. My son is helping me move some stuff this afternoon (2 to 5 pm West Coast time), so I would appreciate watching for any new Woot Monkeys at that time.

I went on the 14 day to Alaska on Royal and it was awesome. Scenery is amazing. Tallest coastal mountain range in the world.
Definitely worth getting a balcony room. It's also nice just being waited on for 14 days

The Alaskan brewery is in Juneau. Free beer!

We were on Holland America, and it was terrific. Great clubs for the kids, and activities for adults as well.

Missed the Ty by a mere 30 seconds or less. I suppose it's really a good thing for the cellar/wallet, but I so hate to miss out on Ty's wines.

Yeah. Sakeguy here sold me on the stuff, twice. Love the guy and lord knows he can sell, but it isn't something I need to woot again for sure. Must be one of those acquired tastes. Even the flavored stuff didn't do it for me.

I sorta really want some so that I would have a 3-year vertical...and cuz this one has such a high percentage of PS in it...but with as much as I've spent this week, I pretty much used up my "wine budget".


PS. That's in quotes up there cuz I really don't have a wine budget, but I should pretend that I do.
