So you're bringing it to the wootception, right? There may be an appearance by the winemaker herself, who I bet would be floored to partake of that vertical

I am extremely lucky when it comes to Fedx. The driver knows to bring anything that needs a signature to my parents house... He even called me on a Sat. cause he had a box for me... but it was easier for him to bring to my parents and would I mind if he did? he also wanted to make sure I hadn't ordered a surprise gift for my folks and if he delivered it, ruin the surprise...

Got notification my Pedroncelli shipped... I'm nervous as it shipped on the 23 and is supposed to be here on the 30th.. It has been in the upper 80's here .... hope it doesn't cook!!

Proctoring sucks. 2 hours a day for 3 days last week and the same for this week. Ugh! Almost done. I feel for the kids.

Unless we poke the Cat some more? So far we have a Corison Kronos and Turley Hayne PS verticals thrown in. Anyone else?

Looks like I actually got my hands on an SQN -- 2006 Mr. K "The Ice Man." I paid quite a tariff, though.

Certainly the prize of my cellar.

I hate having to wait in a doctor's office for an appointment, especially when I got there 15 min. early. I can't think of one instance where they took me right away, or less than 10 minutes after my appointment time (usually 20 or more minutes).


On the other hand, I really hate writing notes down, and not remembering why I wrote the scarecrowic thing down!!!


Edit: It said, "Manda Packing" then "Sell By 5/13 - 6/9"

Just remembered (before using Bing) that it was about some meat recalls that I wrote down to check on. Now if I can remember next time to either write down what it's for, or to just throw it out once I've checked up on it!!!

Got my first order from the new Shopping Cart. You'd think they could put the two items together in the same box, yes? Nope. Everything still appears to ship separately.

You'd expect that with wine (Wellington Syrahs) and the other items (Woot Plus Xmas). But not 3 shipping notifications (two for the Woot Plus items on the order, and 1 for the Wellington, once it ships).

It would make sense if the items were for two different items, but they are from the same company, and basically one is a refill for the other. Wind! Tornado! Hide!????

A little crankiness here. I missed my Pedroncelli delivery. I got the shipping notice and I checked the tracking number several times this week and only got that 'shipping info received' nonsense. My woot purchases have always arrived on Tuesday for the past year so I figured it wouldn't ship until next week. Now I have to go pick it up, or let it set there all weekend in the heat.

I'm in Reno, so it only spent one day on the truck so far. We're getting into the low 80's this weekend, not too bad. But I'm going to try to pick it up, if Fedex will ever get back to me on when I can pick it up. Cooked wine makes me sad.

Bought the Georgetown divide rose on Wednesday morning of the woot off and it's already shipped and scheduled for delivery tomorrow. That maybe a new woot record.

I forgot I have a wine locker. I should have the stuff delivered there. I'm not buying much lately so I entirely forgot about it. I wonder what I have in there...

We should start up a new bidding contest on how many bottles are in your wine locker.

Sparky still has no idea how many bottles he has.

I visited the locker last Saturday. I received three or four more boxes of wine for him and added them to the unopened stack. It's taller than me, now.
