And I missed out on the Brandini?????


WineDavid, you need to make sure certain favorites only come up during hours when we are awake!!!! So not too late for the East Coast, and not too early for the West Coast.


Edit: Me!!!


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

Sooooo tempted by the Glow in the Dark set on Kids Woot. But resisting.

And they've had one Woot Monkey up, but it's still a repeat. Too bad it's not the Woot Sock Monkey.

Only if it was wine!!! The Brandini is shared with the family, especially at Xmas!

MarkDaSpark wrote:I'll have to look, but I'll have to look up my emails when I had problems on the orders. But I'm not the only one reporting problems like this. Someone else also posted somewhere about it too.

The thing is that it may have to do with their new frakkin' Time Stamps. I was First Sucker (around 45 min plus) on the DH PS at 2:08 am PT (4:08 am CT), but now someone else is showed as FS (but at a later time - almost 30 min later).

So it could have something to do with multiple orders, especially if I ordered Wine (or something else) when it came up at 10 pm (Midnight CT) and something else later after Midnight PT.

Their system could be getting confused when they go to ship, and due to the weird time stamps, flip the address.



Well, I currently have orders pending (5 having already been shipped and delivered) to 4 different addresses in 3 different states. So far so good, and hopefully they all go as directed. Not that it wouldn't be a huge deal if any of them went wrong (since they'll all end up at the same place come Xmas), but so far everything looks good.
Now I just need the last 11 orders to finish processing and get shipped.
Nothing like placing 18 orders on only 3 separate days. And today isn't over yet, so there could still be more today. At least I'll get 5% cash back from DiscoverCard on the $619 of orders.

So I posted on Woot Plus thread about people who are griping about the shipping. Now let's see how fast they start calling names. I'm realizing I don't like (stupid trolly whiny) people.

You mean like how you guys have totally over committed and under delivered with the cheese? (tapping food loudly- It's bad enough you sell things as 'holiday gifts' when you don't intend to get them to people in time for any holiday but the christian one, but when you explicitly state when a product will arrive, you kinda need to make that happen.)

Seriously, it's getting near they better include 4 ounces of truffle tremor to say sorry time.

(That will be a pound of TT by the time Thursday gets here and they announce they won't ship until Monday.)

Hey, Minnesota wooters! Have any of you been ice fishing? My husband and I continue to have this debate about where we'll eventually land. I want to stay here in Reno, he is fascinated by the incredible fishing opportunities in Minnesota. I was thinking if we can arrange fishing vacations to Minnesota, maybe that will satisfy him. (for what it's worth, Minneapolis area seems like a lovely place to live, but just a wee bit cold and short growing season puts me off, plus I lurv the desert and proximity to wine country)

Anyhoo, thoughts about ice fishing?

You got a great pack there! First of all you got the Spaniard & Pig Stai. Then there's the VERY NICELY AGED 2002 PS (his first vintage). Plus you got the Sir-Ron-Yeah (before he started calling it that...that's the Syrah Viognier). You also got that Syrah from his first vintage as well.
Basically, that's one kickass couple of packs.

It's a great time to drink beer. Actually, some of the ice shacks are pretty comfy, considering they're ice shacks. I would suggest looking for a place on Lake Mille Lacs to rent an ice shack. There are probably outfitters who can supply all the stuff.

And if you make it up here, stop on by!
