You might be a Wine Woot addict.....

if you have so much wine coming from Wine Woot that you don't care if one offer is two weeks late.

Or three weeks.

When you sit around all night with a bottle of wine and refuse to go anywhere else because there has been quite a wootoff going on and you have already missed much awesomeness because of work and your stupid HTC phone that would not login so now it is just you, your laptop and this bottle of Syrah your little bro got your for Christmas as you watch the wootoff unfold on w.w...

You might be a wine.woot addict if you're still reading ddeuddeg's preposterous rambles even after it has become clear that he's gone over the edge.

You might be a Wine.Woot addict if you ....


.... are holding wine for a fellow wooter (non Woot wine) in one of your wine lockers, and it's not in the first one (opening all the boxes it could be in), you start on the second one (opening the ones on the outside that it could be in), and then decide to look in the boxes in the third one.

And the two bottles you are looking for are on top with the other loose ones in the third locker. Where you put them so you could find them easily when it was time.
