Is it okay if I'm completely unimpressed with this new woot page? It doesn't even make sense. Just call it accessories, a watch is an accessory, good enough. Course I also hate tools & garden woot. It should have just been tools.woot, cause ya know, it's fitting. Woot sites should be ONE NAME!

Just a reminder to our fellow wooters out there....

There's a Wootception in August that still has plenty of room for our woot-friends, both old & new. Even if we havn't met you yet...what better time than to do so while celebrating our wedding at an awesome winery while munching on a roast pig and sipping some wine?

Did I mention that our caterer guy is importing the pig from Iowa? No? Well now I have.

Hmm, I don't know. June has already started, so I don't think one could even be planned quick enough, and I certainly don't have time to do so. So July would be the only likely possibility, but again...one of the NYCrew would have to help organize it (and host it). And then August...well, see above post....I'm not available for the entire month ).

I had completely written this off as a possibility since it is across the country, the weekend of our anniversary, and we just back from Vegas a month ago.

However, it would actually be a pretty fun event for our anniversary (August 27th) and could still fullfill our anniversary plans (visit a different MLB ballpark each year, San Fran is in town that weekend). And plane tickets, while not cheap, are actually cheaper than I expected $400 round-trip on SW.

All things considered, I may just bring this up to the wife to gauge her thoughts. I still think it will be out of our budget, and I really wanted our next left-coast visit to be much longer and exploratory (which would definitely push this out of budget), but I am least intrigued at this point.

Thank you!!!! Sheesh, Cheron gets engaged and is so busy she doesn't have time to smack people around anymore for posting in the old Pub.

Even ThunderThighs posted, and she should have known better!!! Granted, she's on Vacation, but still!

Yes. And you can also blame it on Corrado. It's always his fault.

Try this: "why do you think I care, we both know you're not going to do anything about it, don't you have girlfriends to Stooge about this crap to?"

I can't guarantee it works as well for you as it did for me. I think it was two full days before she said anything other than Hello. Hellooo. Hellooooo. to me though. Point is, I don't get this very often anymore.
