As I waited the many moons for the package to arrive, my mind cheated and looked at what other people were getting. Needless to say, the fedex stats measured me in as a cube box at 15.3" weigh in at 10.7 lbs. I was a bit disappointed as others with these dimensions recieved no sansas or sdhc cards. Instead, the general concensus was a lava lamp, a metal bucket, and an lcd photo frame. After careful thought, I accepted my fate and planned out the items.
The bucket was going to hold a plant. Specifically something similar to a bamboo plant.
The lava lamp was going to next to my bed for when I sleep. I want the time travel effects without the drugs.
The photo frame took a bit longer. I decided I was going to put in photos of scenery and this one girl who I was attempting to persue who is moving away as well as a couple motivational pictures. This I was going to put on my desk so I could be reminded to dream, lament my problems, and motivate myself back to work.
I went to the post office today because a friend made me miss the delivery. I waited patiently as the post office worker fetched my package as well as someone elses. The first one up was not cube so I zoned out. The worker then handed that non-cube package to me. In a confused state, I read the package. iRobot. Oh god. I got a Roomba. I put the package under my arm, looked around, and people started staring at me. I looked at the package again and noticed how large the font was. Some people muttered nerd. Others sniveled at buying a robot in these times. A few broke out brass knuckles. One cracked their knuckles. Feeling uneasy, I scuffled out the door and down the road to my unmarked car. Off I drove, driving in circles and zig zags and through one intersection just to make sure no one followed me. But, now I am home, safe, undamaged.
My package - no where near the right dimensions:
1 Roomba complete with previous owner's animal and human hair. No change was found in the collection area. Works, except the battery holds very little charge.
2 YAY shirts (Small) both called for by friends.
All in all, thank you Woot!
P.S. Between this and the motorized duster, I get it. My house is dirty and I need to clean it more.
P.P.S. Does this allow me to legitimately ask - "Will this work with my Roomba?"
P.P.P.S. Thank you for not sending me a bucket so I won't buy a plant that I will eventually kill because I am horrible with watering.
P.P.P.P.S. In the event I aquire a bucket from woot, I WILL buy a tree, put it in the bucket, and hang previous bags of guppy on the tree specifically to say - "See? These thing really do grow on trees."
you made me giggle

At long last, and after a lengthy battle with myself NOT to assault the mailman every day after he didn't bring it, it's here!
2 Yay Broccoli shirts in K4 which my three year old is excited about (looking to trade one of them for a WM or a 3X so that either my wife or I can wear it)
4 Bluetooth dongles
1 set of earbuds
2 Sansas, different kinds, but I don't know the models, if anyone could identify them for me that would be great... also, no cables, so if anyone has cables but no Sansas, I'll take the cables!
***edit*** as stated below, the one is a e250R. the "C" series one just says Express as the model. the Express doesn't seem to work, but we can't charge it yet, so we'll see.
and of course, 1 white bucket.
and there we are. I'm good with it for a first Bustin' out chainsaws.
