Picked mine up from the post office today.

1 Batman copter
1 strawberry bag thingy
1 spin table
1 box of tea flowers
1 pair of kayak gloves size S

Batman coppter is cool, the tea flowers scare me, the gloves are useless because I wear a size XL, the spintable is about useless as well, The bag works well to put the crap I dont want/need in to take it out to the trash.

By the way If any one want to trade PM me with what you want and what your offering. (I would accept a pallet of car wax)

Got my bag today!

Inside:

1. Knight Flight Batman
2. Strawberry bag
3. Laptop cooler (hot pink)
4. 12 x bags of Texas Air

and for the grand finale....

5. 2 x pairs of Skullcandy headphones! Both in open and beat up packaging so I'm thinking they were returns. But they look and work fine!

The first pair was a pair of blue and white Lowrider DJ style:



Amazon retail value about $14.00

The second pair is significantly cooler however. They are the Hölua style wood buds with remote control and microphone!




Amazon retail value about $45!

Love my crap!

WOOT! WOOT! THANKS WOOT!

Violin music book is sweet! My daughter plays violin, that would have been sweet.

Think I might have the speaker system for that XM Satellite Reciever. I recieved the speaker system without the radio in my last Big o' Cosmos

Today my flight to leave for vacation was canceled and my box of crap arrived. I was upset about having to wait for my crap, woot, but I didn't mean for you to break out the Ice Princess Weather Machine!

inside my 6.4/6.7/variable pound box:

1 Batman
1 strawberry bag
1 laptop cooler (using now!)
3 pet brushes
2 skil racheting screwdrivers

The box was rather large, and there were no bags of Texas Air, so I bet the smartpost people were wondering what in the heck was rattling around inside.

Oh the agony! My BoC came a day early (yesterday), and damnable postal carrier would not walk down the hall and knock on my door. Had the boyfriend pick it up today while I was at work (post office is literally across the street, so didn't have to twist his arm too much!). Can you say anticipation? He was a good boy and didn't open it, but instead chose to taunt me via IM and text all day.


4.9 pounder, got the standard:

1x 15" Heatshift laptop cooler (in grey): thank you Woot! My current laptop "cooler" is a plastic folding tray thingie, it works like crap and hurts my legs. And my laptop is 15"! Perfect!

3x PetZoom brushes: no pets, but know plenty of people who do, these will be gifted

1x Bat-o-copter: My nephews/godsons will be overjoyed (my sister-in-law and brother will probably hate me/Woot though )

1x Strawberry expandable shopping bag: work next to Whole Foods (a.k.a. Whole Paycheck) and NOWHERE near a grocery store, so this will get good use!


And my special item:

1x Sylvania 2GB mp3 player (as seen here, brand new in sealed package): I already have 3 small mp3 players (1 from Woot, actually!), so this will be going to my nephew who has been politely whining for my iPod for the last 6 years.

Overall, very happy with my haul. Bravo again, Woot!

Woot loves me. It's true, they do: http://www.woot.com/blog/viewentry.aspx?id=6608

Got my bag! The usual stuff...

Laptop cooler
Nightflight Batman
Petzoom brushes
Strawberry tote bag

And an usual item...
Prince O3 Tennis Racket Bag ???

The cover has marks on the inside from a tennis racket on it so at some point it contained one. Not now though.

1. Avoided the forums until I got mine to provide the surprise, so I just saw that today.

2. As I posted right after the story post - TPW's post indicated that they too watched the last Big o' Cosmos roll off the line and onto the truck, but if mine came in a Big o' Cosmos, how is it possible that the monkey witnessed the last one go out? Unless of course there is more than one of each of the 3.

Woot has great customer service. I received 3 items in a big box (batman, pet brushes, and a laptop cooling pad)... no bag. Someone said they owed me a bag so I emailed them and they are going to send me one. How awesome is that!

Woot!, and threepiecewoot in particular, are not bound by the laws of time and space that so encumber mere mortals... they can have 'tea' and 'no tea' concurrently, so surely they can have 'monkey' and 'no monkey' when there is a need for a monkey to see itself being shipped so that it isn't really there watching itself being shipped, and it is in the package being shipped so it can see itself being shipped, yet not.

Of course this is quite difficult for a mere mortal to visualize; if you find yourself able to do so you're well on your way to coming up with something awesome to sell to Amazon and get stinking rich ;)


Look upon my Avatar, ye whiny, and despair!

This was my first ever B Oh C. Pretty standard (weight was just over 5lbs).

1 - Knight Flight Batman
1 - silver Heatshift Laptop Cooler
1 - Strawberry tote bag
3 - Petzoom Pet Brushes

And, the non-standard was a blue-tooth headset with charging base. I have not tried it yet to see if it works.

Arrival

Basic lot:
Strawberry Shopping Tote
Knight Flight Batman Helicopter
Heatshift Laptop Cooling Pad
Set of 3 Pet Zoom Brushes

Additional:
Enchanted Meadow Botanical Collection (Bath & Shower Gel and Hand & Body Lotion, 8.4 fl oz each.)

One thing unusual was that the heat-distributing crystals in the cooling pad have left the pad and are loose in the packaging.

Ah well. Cats love the brushes, all is well.

Well I finally got my first Big Orphaned Cetacea after trying for 5 years.

1 Strawberry Bag
1 box speaker mounts
1 Box Colgate Whisps
1 NVizio pen Refills

I was really looking forward to those pet brushes, as it stands the only thing I'll use is the strawberry bag. Hopefully I get better luck next time.

You so need to start taking pictures of people with the monkey statue and start posting them.

Got the common stuff in my 5.6lb Big o' Cosmos: Knight Flight Batman, pet brushes, 2x laptop pads (15" gray and netbook in hot pink) and strawberry bag. Good stuff!

Oh, and 12 bags of sweet, sweet Texas air. Sadly two were missing air. Also my box had standard woot markings and was packed well. And I got to explain to my mailman about the Big o' Cosmos. In retrospect it was a mistake because now there is one more person gunning for our preciouses!!

My Big Orphaned Cetacea was originally slated for delivery the 27th but after a week of bouncing around California (where it still is and I'm in Colorado) They've bumped it back to the 7th of June. AHHHH!

Not implying that just found it weird that they send out old Randy Savage crap and then he died before it was delivered.

The tracking numbers they send for letter B'oC's are basically bogus, since the letter B'oC's are not done by the usual assembly line. The actual shipments were probably sent after his death.

Got my 5.4-pounder:

1 Flying Batman
1 set of pet brushes
1 Heatshift laptop cooling thingie
1 strawberry bag

and the one odd item:

1 flashing beer mug:


It came in a plain, brown, non-Woot-branded box, with no Texas air. Everything came out of the box just fine though.
