And so it begins, its bad enough that I'm holding out on buying 6 bottles of the Rhino since apparently no one wants to split, who knows what will tomorrow bring.

I'm bummed that summer shipping is over already. I probably will have to abstain from buying during this woot-off to avoid cooked wine.

It's weird to be up during the beginning of a woot off...San Fran is such a cool town.

San Fran is one of my favorite "great place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there" places.

Got 3 more just in case .... but up to date on all of them. Thanks!


Edit: And why do I have a sneaking suspicion that the Bundle of Crops may be hidden this time as well. Since they have the "Crapshoot: Deliver a Bag" and the "Fling a Monkey" games.

If anyone shops at Whole Foods, Living Social has a $10 for $20 coupon up right now. If two more people buy through (got mine free, so use Cheron's link if she puts it up) then I get mine for free. So, who's going to be my next two friends?

It'll help me feel better, after the past couple days of feeling like death has kicked me around and left me on the side of the road.

Rats I was going to buy it this morning and post it up and cajole everyone into buying it from me I don't typically shop at Whole Foods, but there's one near me, so getting half off on groceries is always a good deal to me, even if I have to go out of my way to get it. You should be seeing a referral soon.

Further down the Peninsula is quite nice, though. A lot less fog, if you're a fan of sunshine. Especially if you're in BART or Caltrain range. I'd take San Francisco over New York any day, though.

I'm not sure but, I think summer shipping has not ended. All the wine offers after the albino have $7 shipping. So either the albino was a mistake or all the ones after are a mistake.
Last year $7 ended on Friday 9/17. The Monday 9/20 offer had $5 shipping and there was a woot-off the next day. This year the woot-off came a week earlier.

Speaking of the woot-off, I just noticed the banner ad for the bag o'c delivery game. I wonder if that's what we'll have instead of the standard version. Can't play the game here at the office, we're Flash-impaired.

Disable your ad-blocker, then reload the main woot page a few times until it cycles through all the shirt.woot ads and comes up on top of the page.

Don't forget there is still a River of Skulls offer for Wooters who purchased the TO case offer. I've never had RoS, but I'm looking forward to my first club shipment. Not sure if I need 3 more bottles in addition to that though.

Yes, I'm happy to see that summer shipping came back. Still haven't bit on anything yet during this Woot-off, but now I might.

You will regret not biting on the Wellington Victory!


And what Cat & PB said for the two Bundle of Crops games, mostly on the main Woot page at the top and in the deals area.

No one has said anything about them elsewhere, so maybe not a hidden Bundle of Crops They usually reserve those for non-woot offs. I think.

The answer is Yes. Yes you do.

I bought 2 bottles of it during the last shipment as an add-on because Jeff rocks and pre-released it to us when I asked him about it, and I was happy with that. When I discovered today the next TF shipment was going to get me another skulls, I squealed

IIRC, PoiZin usually shows up first or second week in October, just in time for delivery by Halloween.

Are you ready for this? I was watching Vine Talk on PBS tonight. The show was over and the sponsor commercials came on, and I got up and left the room. My son (11) says "hey mom, you need this aerator, it goes right on the top of your wine bottle"... I asked how he knew it was an aerator and he replied "cause of the sound it made when the wine went in, I knew what it was"..... hmmmmmmmm..... should I be impressed or scared???

I'm leaning west. Due to fiance - I expect I'll have to move next summer. I'm looking at alaska, portland, seattle, colorado, utah, and california. Which leaves a problem - California is huge. LA is way different than San Diego, different than, etc etc , San Fran, Sacremento, etc.

Not sure how to check out all these places. But I'll have to visit some I suppose. And try some wines.
