I wish I could tell you, but I've been saying smack worthy stuff since the beginning so we have been getting smacks since early on in woot2.0 history. From acemom and dname and even poof!

Yes, I thought it was one of those situations where you and "deserving recipient" exchange smacks. Sort of like a variant of last posting that only the two of you share and the rest of us can only hope to someday understand.


Or something like that.

why is it that "smart" and "dumb" placed before that other word both mean the same thing?

I'm guessing they are superfluous words, and either way you're just being an ass.

Morning everyone.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Good afternoon posters. Sitting here thinking about lunch. forgot to bring one today. I just realized that sometimes when I do bring lunch, I don't eat it. When I have nothing, I'm starving. Why is that?

I actually brought my lunch today -- salad with strips of beef (deli-meat) and bleu cheese crumbles plus Balsmic vinegarette.

I think smart is that you meant to be dumb, where as dumb is that you don't know that you are being dumb...

Acemom would smack anyone who said something stupid.
So, mostly the guys.
It was a smack upside the head.

At the time Ace was the woot mom. Tried to keep everyone in line. There were no probation's.


I showed up and stayed out of the smacking until Ace was going into the real world more and more.

Now, my husband is the second oldest of 8 kids, all less than 2 years apart.
He spent his life giving "cracks" to any younger sibling who did something annoying. Cracks were smacks upside the head. The same thing Ace was doing.
I started giving out cracks to hubbies family too. Mostly because even though they are all now professionals and doing well in the real world.....the guys are still fools!

I hit sons friends when they do something stupid too.

When Ace started backing off on the smacks, I moved in.

Mostly to Cruzer, the man who doesn't know how to mail a thank you card!

They were sort of rare. A few a week.

THEN daj showed up!
The smacks exploded!
Smacks flying everywhere!
To everyone!
Noone is safe!
I'm not even sure what she is smacking. I sort of picture them as across the face. Plus they are harder now.


WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

I was just reading some of the criteria for job openings at Woot, some of which are really funny if you haven't read them, and one of them was:

"Analyzing the pros and cons of potential changes, especially with regard to aesthetics and usability."

I wish they'd had a person in that position before they changed to this stupid broccoli and carrots color scheme.

What? That would require another gift.
You got 21 birthday and graduation. That is it for a loooooooooooong time.

Technically, he offered the additional thank you card without an expectation of a gift. I say you take him up on the offer just so we can get a good laugh to see how long it takes him this time.

Mine are slight whacks up along the top side of the head, in the hair. Kinda like Moe to Larry or Curly but on the side instead of the front of the head. The same kind of smack son get's when he's being a goof.

Proper translation: O.M.G. I actually made a lunch to bring today! I can't believe it!

I usually go home and have cheese & crackers & yogurt.

i think smart comes in when the comment was intentional, and dumb comes in when the comment was the result of one being a pure, unreconstructed one that smells of Elderberries

edit: hmm, the filter's not necessarily bad, in this case, maybe an improvement?
