To me, this is almost as much fun as the anticipation of finding out what's in the box.
Last time, I was a bit disappointed that my box was smaller and lighter than most. Still, the contents were pretty good.
Can't wait till the shipments go out. It usually takes about 1 week from the date of purchase so I suspect we'll all start seeing shipping invoices tomorrow or Thursday.
Whatever I get...... thanks Woot!
Actually, that's Phase 2. Phase 1 usually plays itself out the day the Bags are offered, or in this case, over the three days they were offered.
The Phases of the Bag of Crap (according to DrGandalf):
Phase 1: The discussion of getting vs. not getting the Bag of Crap, with the usual reference to the cursed bots, Woot's horrible servers, and related.
Phase 2: The discussion of when will Woot finally ship the Bags, and did you get your tracking number, and the creation of the spreadsheet.
Phase 3: The discussion of how much the packages are predicted to weigh, how big they are, how Smartpost is sending them all around the country, and whether they are arriving early, late, or maybe never, and how to find out all the tracking information.
Phase 4: The revealing of the contents of the much awaited Bags of Crap, with much hooting and Wooting by those that are happy, some grumbling by those that are not, but with most folks happy that they got to play the game no matter what they got.
