Oh, and I will be incognito all day tomorrow. Well, hiding anyway.

I would argue that woot has been a site for tools all along. No need for a separate site.

So we now have a "Tools & Garden! Woot. Somehow that doesn't just roll off the tongue. Or, are they playing a joke on us?

Well, at least for one day it's real enough.

Welcome! I knew I posted that "secret" from tools but then when I went back to look it was gone. Too early on a Monday morning for me, thought I was losing it even more than usual!

I did it on all the sites. Wanted to people to explore and find it. Not just people in a specific group like wine or deals. It lasted over 40 minutes! Developer reported that over 91% went to those that have been Wooters for over a year.

I'd just like to say that I totally stumbled on it. No Facebook notice, nothing. Just happened to be looking at the site and saw the garden thing and HONESTLY SAID "Hey, I wonder if I can get some garden dirt shipped home so I don't have to break my back."

I swear.

Imagine my surprise to discover that lovely bag Although I'm moderately disappointed that I'm not getting garden dirt shipped home.

Seriously.

Despite thinking it was April 1st for the past few days, I totally FORGOT that today was, indeed, truly April 1st.

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

Thanks for trying. Too bad I was exhausted from the gathering, or I would have paid more attention and gotten a Bunch of 60s Cartoons Oh well.

Thanks for getting my hopes up. I shot over thinking, finally, this is the perfect opportunity for woot to offer the DeLong California Wine Map, or Delong Wine Varietal Table, but nope, just some overpriced generic wall-art.

So sorry. I hope you had a good four days off? We have this whole week off. Definitely needed after rehearsing last Tues & Wed for Holy Week and then, singing Thurs, Fri, Sat AND Sun. Plus, we had to get up early to attend the funeral Mass of the sister of one of the guys from church. The good news was that the funeral was in the church about four blocks away. Tomorrow evening, Shakespeare BoD Mtng. Wednesday, we are going up to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada for a few day get away.

We'll be seeing a show at the Shaw Festival called The Betters and then heading to a really cool Spa-Hotel that had a great deal on Living Social.

Just picked up our iPhone 5 today. Gotta be really careful--they are sooooo light! I may need to get an OtterBox just so I don't throw my phone across the room! We each traded in our iPhone 4 and were able to get our accessories for free! We decided to get a device that will allow us to amplify our googlemaps directions in the car. It also allows us to make or take a call and play music from our phone. We did have to add a little $$ to make up the balance for this new toy. But it should be nice for travel. I also got the mobile hot spot that may just come in handy at school--I'll be able to use my own computer & gain internet access with it. Currently, we cannot gain access to the network at school on our personal devices and have to use the ultra slow school computers.

It means that someone at woot doesn't know the diff between "site" and "sight"!

Where did you see this? On Twitter? (Edit: Oh, I see too many characters. So, where'd you see it?)
