Hail to WD, the ultimate enabler!



And you can start walking to NoCal #20!!! Unless you meant a case of the Balsamic Vinegar!

Can I help it if I got sweepy last night before Midnight?

Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

WineDavid - Many Happy Returns of the Day!

(Sparky or CJ, you might want to update the gathering list to be Aug 10 - unless the 17th is still a possibility. Also who is going to convince Cheron to stream her wedding? Will she be lighting her dress on fire and running into the ocean?)

The Thanksgiving all about the pilgrims, Mayflower, etc. Not the original one (which for some reason you guys call Columbus Day).

What's up with people posting lab rat reviews in the main forum? Did I not get the memo, or does the lab rat program not exist?

The lab rat program does not exist. However, bottles do seem to fall off FedEx trucks into wooter laps every so often, but we do not speak of that.

I've had my share of bottles get shipped to my house on accident, but, like you said, I don't speak of that. First rule of inexistent lab rat club...

Well, we ARE planning on heading to the boardwalk in the evening, but that's totally voluntary for anyone else. Besides, he could easily stay up til (only) 10pm and have gotten his fill of hanging out with us and still be able to call that an early night.

Son is in college, and needs to be taken back? Send him off on his own, save $. $. $., and join us at the wootception. Sounds simple to me.

LOL. He's under 25 so can't rent a car. He doesn't take a car with him as they have a great shuttle service there.

Most states DO allow renters under 25, though they charge extra for the rental. And if that doesn't work, skip the big companies anyways: Relay Rides

Heh, interesting idea. All his stuff is in storage so we have to move him back in. Takes about 3 trips - art student so lots of supplies. And his birthday is that same weekend as the move so we can spend it together.

FYI: There is a new phone scam out there.

If anyone call you for any reason and asks for you to dial *72, DO NOT do this. This gives the most recent caller the ability to call anywhere on your telephone account.

No.

For most people *72 turns call forwarding on or off.

So if someone tricked you into typing *728675309 then incoming calls to you would be forwarded to Jenny.

And yes you would pay for the call from you to Jenny's phone, but it hardly "gives the most recent caller the ability to call anywhere on your telephone account."

It'll also be the first weekend Mom will be up there on her own. So no.

Excuses, excuses.

Tell the woot Godiva that we need to have a Moderator on hand, in person, to make sure we don't post inappropriately or something, and that you will make the sacrifice to go if they foot the bill.

Is it bad that I'm so wiped out from today that I'm drinking the last bit of my Triacipedis straight from the bottle instead of cleaning a glass?
