I came home from work today to find a Woot box sitting in my kitchen. My 4 year old daughter excited that the box had finally arrived. My 1 year old daughter had even tried to open the box.

My box contained -

A "barbie" - really it's a Kratos doll from GOW ps3 game.

2 cupcake lip glosses to keep Kratos' lips moist.

2 washcloths to clean Kratos' sweaty parts.

And a blue duffle bag to carry Kratos everywhere.


My 4 year old celebrated by stealing the lip gloss and giving me kisses.
My 1 year old celebrated by taking off her diaper and leaving her own crappy deposit under the kitchen table.

How I love crap. Thanks Woot!

I'm dreaming of opening the box and finding a "woot letter". Of course, it cound be a flower bag and three lip balms.

Anyone have experience now or in the past with a 1 pound box of carrots?

My Santa's Sack of Crap arrived yesterday.
I will open it after my show tonight on Justin.tv.
It will be around 9:15-9:45 P.S.T. sometime in there.

Where is the Woot! love that formally was on this site?
All the haters, whiners and complainers. I remember in the beginning the Burgandy Olfactory Center was a Burgandy Olfactory Center
There were no letters. Most people but not all got 1 random item. The rest of the bag was pretty muchthe same for everyone just like the Burgandy Olfactory Center bag is today.

You want to talk about hard to get. You had an extra step in there where you had to choose a quantity of 3. Once I only picked 1 and boy, did I get nothing! Woot! did a big disservice to the Burgandy Olfactory Center by giving out the letters and big prizes. After that started, people all wanted more than the time before. I was happy just to get my order thru (3rd time was the charm) and get some priority pucks.
I now have 25 boxes of crap piled in my bedroom. Yes I opened them and other than the bags, not much use came from the other items. I do use a Kodak pocket camera that I got for emergency use in the car. My favorite bag was my first. (Your first is always special) It had the first Woot! t-shirt and first flying monkey in it. I still use the laptop bag that was included.
The most valued item for sale on the site back then were some "Mystery Speakers". These sold out faster than the Burgandy Olfactory Center

Thanks Woot! for the Burgandy Olfactory Center Have a Happy New Year!

My haul:

6-pack gummy shot glasses
3 washcloths
5-pack of XL t-shirts (too big for me or my wife)
green tote bag

And one thing that I haven't seen anyone mention, at least in the last few pages (these days I avoid these threads until I've opened mine, so as not to find out what I might get ahead of time): A "pop-up/pop-down" lawn sprinkler system, sort of like this one.

1 - Dark brown wash cloth

My wifes sack:
1 - Big green bag with a purple fower on it
5 - XL solid color t-shirts
1 - blue washcloth with a bird on it
1 - Fun Foot Flush

We were fortunate to have a two crap household. The wife's and mine were the same though.

5-pack of XL t-shirts (assorted colors)
1 Pop-up sprinkler
1 Microfiber facial mitt
1 Washcloth
1 Red duffel bag

The t-shirts I'll burn through in a couple months. The mitts and washcloths were claimed by the wife. The sprinklers will goto use this spring.

Now the bags, I think I've got enough bags from Woot to fill them with crap and send one to each employee at Woot.

I can't wait to see what Colonelcrap has up his sleeve.

2.6 lb box with:
1)red duffle
2)brown washcloth
3)tabletop tripod
4)4ft. Phillips Pro HDMI cable
worth the price of admission for sure!

my wife's and son's were similar with items 3 and 4 changing to the Flowering Tea and a "birthday survival kit" (Pewter candle holder, ice scream spoon, and candle holder - $15 in Nov. on Kids.woot) for my wife.

My son had a bunch more: spitball dartboard, reusable flower-bag, travel bingo, cupcake gloss, and cute macro-microbes for mad-cow disease. $9 at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Giant-Microbes-Bovine-Spongiform-Encephalopathy/dp/B000O26GRK/ref=pd_sim_t_9

As always, though, it's the thought that counts (no laptop, darn).

1x small designer woot box
0x texas air
1x Yellow floral Gwen's Nest bag
1x white diva darling headband
1x white fingertip towel with the initial C (Really?! Because that's MY first initial! ahh Woot! you're so sweet!)
1x package knockknockstuff crappy task clips
and
1x package Mini dingo meat in the middle rawhide chews. would be perfect for my big fat pup if he were not big.

Thanks woot! But really- send cat toys next time. They are pissed. (requisite woot!cat photos below!)

Aww man, everyone is getting their craps. My very first Burgandy Olfactory Center isn't going to get here until the 10th! Who would have thought Dallas to Chicago would take so long?!?

This will make up for the USPS losing my blanket with sleeves (covered in monkeys!) that I got during the woot off and mailed to a friend for xmas.

Man I'm pumped just to get something! Now the USPS just has to make sure it gets to me!

The clips are the best thing in the box, though I can't really bring them to work, unfortunately. The washcloth is nice and will get some use. The tote bag will probably replace the bag I've been using to bring my mom's laundry back and forth from the nursing home. I think she'll love it. She might be able to use the Diva Darling as well.

All-in-all I am very happy with my crap. Though I am disappointed that I didn't get any Texas air. Heck, I had to complain about something. :{)

So my wife and I have only been wooters for like 3 or so weeks now and were both lucky enough to each get a Bag of Coal. Her bag weighed in at 2.6lbs and mine weighed in at 5.9lbs. So without further adieu, here is what we received combined:

2 dish towels --one maroon and one white
2 micro fleece face scrubbers
2 pop up lawn sprinklers
2 duffel bags --one red and one blue
1 set of pirate shrinky dinks
and last but not least i got 5 random plain colored x-large t-shirts.

All in all not too bad (although i saw others posts and really was hoping for that foot flush just b/c i almost bought one when it was on one of the woot sites). Anyway I had fun and can not wait to try again during the next woot off!!!!

Oh, and ColnelCrap, you have big shoes to fill. I look forward to your craptastic ways. I once got a cheap chinese electric car in a Bag of Coal that took me an hour to put together, and 2 minutes to break. All of the instructions and text on the box were non-english, and it was hard to put together. It sat on my mantle for a couple years before I had to throw it out due to it being a choking hazard for my kids. Top that (please).

He's actually not ok. He has been sick since October with an unknown neurological issue. He started having twitching and then couldn't walk, has facial paralysis on one side and can't close his eye. He was able to walk again, then got worse again. MRI shows something, the first neurologist blew off the findings, but the second neurologist said there is something there, but nothing definitive. He is undergoing chemotherapy right now because the vets think it's cancer. But they cannot biopsy his brain because that will kill him. He's been scratching his neck like crazy causing bleeding so he's wearing a partial e-collar. Thanks for asking. I am very sad about all this and I'm afraid he will die.

Nice eagle eye you got there ThunderThighs.

My Santa's Barrel of Creosote came yesterday (Friday). It is my fourth and best one yet. It was 6.0lbs and contained:

5 XL shirts (my size for a snug fit and since I'm actually starting to lose weight they won't be that snug for long; all but one are good colors for me and that one (yellow) isn't horrible)

1 Fun Foot Flush (my daughters will probably be getting it installed in their bathroom, possibly tomorrow)

1 White hand towel/wash cloth with silver/gray embroidered design

1 Diva Darling Facial Mitt, pink micro-fiber (given to a friend at work when he said he could use it)

1 Gwen's Nest reusable shopping bag, pink flowers on orange

9 bags of Texas air, 8 full, 1 barely puffed

Definitely more value than the $8.71 it cost me. I am very happy with my crap.

I am here to make sure that the items being shipped are more diverse, interesting, bizarre, broken, weird and worthy of blog banter. I am also here to make sure that every package has, at least, the minimum amount of crap and that the crap gets shipped in a timely manner. I am here to make sure that communication about the shipped crap is distributed so that everyone can start getting battle-ready to receive their crap.
I know that there is more to address, but a plan doesn’t work if it never gets started. I am sure that this plan will work and make this a mean, lean, crapping machine. See you in the trenches.
ColonelCrap



I too received the following standard crap:

5 XL tees (these dont appear to be the super soft woot tees I buy - much less would they fit me or anyone in my family - a quick check of shirt.woot order history would've told santa crap that)

The foot flush (still dont see a use for this - maybe if I owned a public toliet...)

A large flowery bag (ugly and frankly useless to me)

a washcloth (brown with a pink flower on it)

a diva face mit (are you suggesting I don't wash enough?)

My biggest "complaint" here (aside from the uniform sameness of the craps) is there was no geek factor. No useless little electronics or geek item. No keychain flashlights. No camera bag. No useful bag (honestly Id take the red duffle over this flowery bag). Not even a 1gb robot flash drive with some woot staffers boring vacation pics on it.
I really hope there is a fix to this. This was the first santa crap I've ever gotten and my first crap I was able to snag in a long dry spell of getting no crap. Sadly, my crap was truly disappointing.

Also,

0 bags of texas air

Personally, this is coincidentally/probably the most useful Burgandy Olfactory Center I've gotten in 3-4 tries.

That said, there is a sameness to these that wasn't present even a year ago, and a lack of geekiness too, but it's really hard to put a finger on why. Could be woot!, could be similar resellers, or it could be manufacturers or retailers doing something else.

Thank you Colonelcrap and welcome aboard!

I know I was fortunate to receive some great crap in the past and then some others that were mediocre, but even so, the fight for the crap that you never seem to achieve, the anticipation to find out what you might get when you do win a crap (even MAYBE getting that special letter), and the shared fun in finding out what novel things others are getting comprise the whole of the crap experience. I mean 8 bucks for two weeks entertainment and shared bonding? priceless.

When the variety's gone, it's just not as much fun anymore. The crap commandments tell me what i'm in for so I shouldn't lament, right?!; but almost all the same bags? ugh. I am not complaining. I'm just becoming indifferent to the experience.

Please bring back the love CC, and we'll continue to give it back in return.

my biggest "complaint" is that it wasn't Christmas themed at all.

But rest easy, GeekyOne, at least I did get a flashlight.

my haul:

small black sports bag (aka duffel bag)

small black Garrity flash light (batteries not included) (seems to be this "Tuff Lite")

philips 4' hdmi 1.3a/b

avanti (nutmeg/spaghetti) washcloth (similar to this one but with tassels)
