I reloaded the pages several times last night when the post count and date of sign-up disappeared. It took me a bit before my mouse accedentally landed on a name. I was frustrated. . .



Heh... apparently I have one post. I'm new again!

Or, is woot saying I had one meaningful thing to say, and 17,220 useless things.

The new post count and join date annoy me. For some reason, I often have my cursor at the edge of the posts and the new shows up and blots the text out.

Me. You call me, I call Gatzby, Gatzby calls a god, the goddess answers the phone and wakes up the god.
The god goes back to sleep with the pissed off goddess!

I like when my husband tells me to tell them he isn't home when the security company calls when the work alarm goes off.
Where the heck is he at 3am?????

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

My husband got called at 3 a.m. Christmas morning one year. I told them he was out with the reindeer. I don't think it was appreciated. It took me about two years after he retired before I stopped saying, "Are you home?" every time the phone rang.

You need to change your name to Whil Weaton. That'd do. Of course, I still need to get my own shirt site in order.

Or I could just go back to talking to myself again... who stole my underwear? Dang kids...

I don't go to the product thread except once in forever, those people are way scary! Plus I usually have very little to add about most products and I don't feel like posting a froogle or amazon review for whatever the product is. I guess I shall be doomed to the land of no quality posts forever.

Underwear is over-rated and in this town, optional.

No quality posts here. Woot started out with a Polaroid camera that was sold out before anyone bought one. After a while, they finally took the sold out sign down, but they only had 32 of them to sell, so pretty quick to sell out again. Then the SDHC cards that sold out fairly quickly, too.

I'm not sure, and I'm not sure how they could access and acquire that particular article of clothing without Skek noticing, however; anything is possible.
