And for your first Woot, too! Congratulations doubly so.

Edit: Out of curiosity, what was everyone's first Woot? Mine was http://www.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=3764

It just died last summer and was replaced fairly quickly.

My first Woot was the Duracell battery charger.

So far so good, but I keep losing the charger...sneaky little bugger.

First woot ever was on 8/01/08: http://www.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=2475252

I still use them (am at this very moment). I broke one of the ears (or whatever) off, but I like the headphones so much I ... uh... fixed it....

*edit* Oh, the padding on the ears did deteriorate after heavy use so I had to replace them.

*another edit* I forgot it came with a mic. It worked for a time then crackled out and died.

That's the $1 Million question, sir.

It's random. If you check out this video by Woot! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YYF-45T0R4 ) at about 1:50 they make mention of how some of the Bunnies Ogling Carrots get filled.

4/5/06 2 Kensington iPod Speakers. One I gave to my mom and the other has been through a hard time when I let the ex borrow it for her dorm room for a year. Both are still working great so one of my better Woot purchases.

As far as weirdest/best Bunnies Ogling Carrots item, I got a Wowee Rovio who came with a bad AC adapter and he can't find his home base to recharge. I still have yet to find a decent use for it but it has been fun to play with.

Yes, we are very pleased with the way both of our kids turned out: thoughtful, smart and resourceful.

I probably should have mentioned that the CES Woot monkey arrived as part of a custom-made Barrel of Crops. The canvas bag from a conference was filled with CES loot (hats, pens, desk accessories, and even an anachronistic CD holder from the USPS booth.)

I sure hope this Barrel of Crops has at least one thing my son will find useful or fun, but any which way, it will be entertaining!

Got an idea...

Once people start posting the weight of their Bunnies Ogling Carrots could you please post the wave you got it in as well? This time there were 5 waves of Bunnies Ogling Carrots throughout the day.

I am not sure if anybody has received shipping notice yet. I have not, but can see my tracking information by "tracking by reference" through FedEx. Just enter your Bunnies Ogling Carrots order number in the reference number field.

First Woot purchase for me was the Spy Net Night Vision Goggles, purchased 11/28/2011, was a gift for my nephew. He loves them and they actually work really well! I have since been a fan of Woot and frequent the site and blogs daily.

2nd bag of chickens for me. My first was from the last offering. I was so excited with the first one I managed to get my wife pumped as well. In all of the excitement she opened the package as soon as it arrived and sent me pictures via text while I was at work. I equated the experience to standing in line for hours for a roller coaster only to get to the terminal and they shut the ride down. I think she understands now.

You're attributing a tone to my comment that is wholly inappropriate, which likely stems from my curt reply. As such, I apologize, it was not my intention to be condescending, and the fact that you felt my post was, is a failure on my part.

the fact that you are still married is a testament to your commitment. I am pretty sure if my wife had opened my Bunnies Ogling Carrots with out me, I would be posting these comments from a county with strict non-extradition laws.

If you got one, you would have gotten an email and your bank account would have been charged. A lot of people managed to get to the "Your order is in" page, however when they actually processed orders were rejected due to quantity limits. If that is the case for you, I feel for you.

Unfortunately, it means you are part of the 1%.

By this point, you would certainly have an item in your account history, and you would have received an email confirming it, certainly by the morning of 3/23.

Been there, done that. Sometimes it ends up the other way, you think you got shut out and you find it in your history.

My first Woot was a Barrel of Crops on 10/13/2006. From what I remember it had, Barbie Water wings, 2 thumbdrive/usb locks, a usb travel mouse that was really small but it lasted about 2 years and a camera bag. The big buzz from that Bunnies Ogling Carrots was that someone got a 61" DLP TV.

That's OK...the last Bunnies Ogling Carrots I got was "lost" by SmartPost (or whatever) and Woot was nice enough to send out another. Turns out it was a PS3 and a 19" LCD monitor.
