If you ask what "pulling a nallie" is, and you figure you'll get an answer...

...well, okay, that has nothing to do with w.w. addiction. I just really want to know.

(BUT--if you find yourself walking through the grocery store--or liquor store--and turning up your nose at THEIR offerings...you just might be a wine.woot addict.)

Our [dear] Nallie is famous for saying she is really, really, really going to bed, and then posting at least 3 more times (or for about a half hour) beyond her "Good night, all!" message.

If you suddenly realized during a woot off that you weren't getting your EWN texts because you switched carriers (got an iPhone) and had to leave a patient room (feigning getting paged) to check the site...

you might be an addict!

Hey!


If you've flown cross-country 3 times to go to Eastern Wine.Woot gatherings, once to Chicago and Denver for Wine.Woot gatherings, and are still planning on flying cross-country again to get on a boat where other wooters may try to make you walk the plank .....

.... you might be a wine.woot addict.



If when looking at your Cellar Tracker, and you notice that your Wine.Woot purchases are almost double the next Store (and number 1 on the list) ......

..... you might be a wine.woot addict (and both are good reasons WHY you might be a multiple labrat!).
