Unfortunately by this time tomorrow I'll be back in the 20s :/

In case you've missed it so far, Stillman's been active on the thread for the current offer. Always a treat to read his posts.
(And to drink his wine. )

Yesterday AM it was 2.3%, and after the recalculate last night it's now 2.6%. I'd like to think my tired fingers helped at least a little bit, along with all the others here.

I so want to try it, but it's expensive! Last Stillman wine I tried at very high alcohol I didn't like (the one WD brought to the wootception).

And here I thought Krampus was supposed to have extra-special deep discount deals...not rehashes at the same price.

Agreed. Also, I'm guessing that over 50% of the people who see those ads have no idea what "gif'ing out" is and they are the ones most likely to be shopping at Kmart. Seems like they're missing their target audience but maybe it's all part of unveiling the edgy hipster store that's been hidden deep beneath those blue lights all these years. Yeah, that's the ticket.

TT: not sure what's going on, but it seems like there are way more weirdos complaining about issues, plus some of us (North) are having issues, too. Maybe make a call to Mr. Bezos. Or do you call him "Jeff"?

seriously, he has a public email and he takes complaints seriously. the most terrifying thing in all of Amazon CS is getting an email from him basically asking what the decorate. I read an article about him, seems like a micro-manager extraordinaire.

gotta admit, i found myself on the complaining side of things today. placed an order at shirt 2 fridays ago. it's been "shipping now" since 2 days after the order. never changed to "shipped", no tracking, and no item. and this is part of a christmas gift. with a 7-10 day ship time AFTER it actually ships, i am now legitimately worried. fired off an email to service, but i dont expect much to come from it.

also, we received part of our candy basket order... placed an order for several different items, received ONE item, but shipping status hasnt changed on the order. giving it a few more days but it's supposed to be a guaranteed for Christmas thing.

what up, yo

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

Wife is making a slow cooked meal with ox tails and chorizo. Vegetables, paprika and white wine are what they cook in. Any wine recommendations? Mainly something to handle the oxtails.
