My Bunch of Change arrived today! I had to wait until my daughter got home to open it.

Contained:
1x purple sunflower shopping bag
1x Dale Earnhardt Jr. Velvet coloring board (my daughter is beyond thrilled with that one)
1x Spitball target board, with instructions just in case we didn't know how to make spitballs.
1x plain orange t-shirt
1x stainless steel watch
1x Kindle cover (please send the Kindle to go with it in my next Bouts of Consternation as I have a Nook and it doesn't fit )
1x AWESOME talking Chuck Norris doll (don't know if it works yet but even if he doesn't talk, it's still AWESOME! How can Chuck Norris NOT be AWESOME?)

Thank you Woot!

Just opened mines!

5.4lbs standard box

My my, this is probably my weirdest Bunch of Change yet. Like, uber-crappy. I wished for electronics, not a kids book or fifteen piano manuals.

Contents:
- 1x Purple tote bag with sunflower.
- 1x Cars 2 kids book (finished the book in 20 minutes)
- 2x Snap Straws
- 1x PSP sticker (gotta dust out my PSP first-gen now)
- 1x Chuck Norris Doll holding two Uzis (needs batteries, but me likey!)
- 4x Texas air
- 2x USB cables (USB to the square thing)
- 1x VGA cable
- 1x Peach colored plain XL shirt

And the biggest surprise ever
- 15x "Session Keystudio" quick start guides which basically shows you how to install the CD (the bulk to the 5.4 lbs)

Woot Gods, why or how do you guys even have these manuals laying around?!

But I'm grateful anyways! Thank you Woot! You guys officially stumped me on what the heck I'm gonna do with the manuals. Can't wait what I'm getting next time!



I'm going to edit this later, I have to go to my sisters school now for her schools talent show.

Update: I figured it out! So like my two dogs (a minute pincher and Chihuahua) are potty trained to pee-pee/poo-poo on newspaper in our apartment. What I'll probably do is like lay out every page in the book side by side on the floor. Hah, so I wasn't so much stumped after all. I seriously thought it was like a camera or something in that bag which made it heavy and there were all these cords in it.

I'm really loving the chuck norris doll though, I want to convert it into a keychain or something.

I gave the tote bag to my mom to help haul laundry and stuff. One of the snap straws are going to go on use on my next can of soda. Thanks for the USB cable! I really needed one for my old external hard drive and another for my external sound card. Really useful after all! I didn't need a VGA cable though.. still thinking what I could do with it. As for the shirt, another one added to my pajamas drawer! As for the cars book.. I think it's either going to my moms office (if there are kids around) or towards the raffle on our next family picnic coming up next month.

No letter or monkey found this time. :[ Oh wells, maybe next time!

I. Really. Wanted. A. Helicopter. For. Some. Reason.

POSSIBLY THE BEST BoC THREAD EVER. (With a story!~)
O-M-G! That Squirrel stole my Bag of Crap!

1x sunflower bag
2x snap straws
1x ChuckNorris Dolls
1x Narwhal Horns
1x Calendar
1x SMC Router
1x Burgundy Shirt
1x PlayGear Skin kit

Well worth the wait. Even though I have no PSP LOL & I use tomato on my routers. But Might try it out see if it works better.

Also The FedEx guy stated many trucks were late. & the site is not accurate lately.

Exactly what I got, except my shirt is yellow instead of burgundy. And mine arrived today, one day ahead of estimated delivery, which is awesome because today is my birthday! Thanks for the great presents, Woot!!

I think I'm going mental LOL.

My order has said "Out for Delivery" since this morning, yet about 4:30 I actually saw the FedEx truck drive PAST my house. I fought the urge to run after him... It's 7:28 here now. I'm thinkin he's not coming back lol.

I'm totally diggin those purple sunflower bags - sunflowers are my FAVORITE! If I get one of those, I'll be a thrilled wooter.

Mine arrived a couple of days ago!

1. Stuffed "Cow Parade" Boston "Mooflower"
2. sunflower reusable bag--purple
3. earbuds--Trendy Budz--lavender
4. Hanes orange t-shirt "heavy cotton" size 3X
5. SKC silver-toned watch with mesh band
6. Sanyo camera case

Everything my family ordered from this WootOff arrived VERY quickly! Thank you, Woot! ...so excited to get random treasures! I always try, but rarely succeed. I ordered mine in the middle of the night. I guess getting older and having to get up during the night has its advantages. LOL!

Woot just emailed me a ship notification even though it's been in FedEx's system since the 29th. Oddly, it's still 1lb and 6.93" cubed, which I presume to be a placeholder. Since it's smartpost I'm not getting excited about a possible letter or anything.

It should be delivered on Tuesday, but who knows?

My Bouts of Consternation has arrived, but I'm waiting to open it until Monday when my fiance's is scheduled to get here. I don't know if I'm going to make it, though.

More than anything I'm just glad it's back in a Woot! box again! My last one was in a plain 'ol unmarked box and that was sad.

Ya I need to look at the snap straw as it might come in handy.
The router might also.
Rest unsure who to hand off to.

I've been tracking it using the number from 'the 'stuff you bought' entry, and about an hour ago I got the email that it has now shipped. Fedex actually picked it up two days ago, though.

I just got an email. It's 6.1 pounds and suppose to be here the 6th. I got mine in the last round.

The 6th is my son's 24th B-day. Maybe I'll give it to him as a present. Maybe not. I have to drive his ass to Ann Arbor the next day to check out Michigan for grad school. That's going to be a long expensive weekend. May need a Bouts of Consternation for moral support.

My Bouts of Consternation was scheduled to arrive Monday. Imagine my surprise when I woke up today (Friday) to check it's status and it said delivered!! Checked the front door and there it was!

Contents:

3 Texas air

Spitball dartboard (work excuses). This thing is pretty funny but I HATE body fluids so spitballs shall not be made. Perhaps i shall use real darts on it.

3XL road cone orange tshirt. Good sleep shirt as I am women's medium men's small lol. Love the color.

Cow parade 'super cow' red caped stuffed cow. Gave my fiance's mom who collects cows the last one we got in his box so will give her this one also. Can't remember what it was but it had two mini cow's on it's back. Something to do with travel?

Black leather kindle cover. Anyone know if this will fit a kindle fire? Will give it to my mom if it does. model kc-3000.

Stainless steel watch. Kinda dig this. Wearing it now. Haven't had a watch since my awesome fossil one died 9 years ago.

and the two things made of awesome:

Brown paper woot bag, with yellow question mark (Wooooooot! Love it!! But what do I do with it? Frame it?)

And a composition notebook that says "HELL Is Other People" which I love! Was just saying like 3 days ago that I wanted a composition book but the covers are so boring. This and the bag alone were worth the $8.

Cat's are loving the box.

Thanks Woot gods!

Mine shipped at 2.2 lbs, I think, and dimensions were 12.2 x 9 x 5, or something like that. It was scheduled to be delivered Monday so I left straight from work and drove 150 miles to help out at my Mom's. Checked FedEx and discovered that it was delivered today! Argh!!!! I have to wait a day or two to open it and HOPE my daughter has enough sense NOT to open it before I get there.

Depends how old your daughter is. If she's older than 12, she'll know how open, steal what she wants and re-tape a box. May the crap be with you..

Yep they do and Denver is very slow to send them on their merry way. Last delivery was a day late in arrival according to estimated delivery. It sat nearly 5 days in Denver over the weekend.

Not only is is hard to find there, they no longer provide a link to the discussion on the items you bought page. Maybe it was an oversight on the site redesign, but Woot! please bring the link to product discussion back.

Here's my 6lbs of crap.



1x Fruit of the Loom red XL t-shirt, plain (not pictured)
1x Purple sunflower bag
1x Spitball dartboard
1x Diva Darling microfiber facial mitt
1x Chuck Norris (non)talking plushie
1x SIGG water bottle cleaning tables (20 tablet pack)
1x Dell AT101W keyboard, very very used

The last was why the package was so heavy. This is one of the old built-like-a-tank keyboards, and appears to date from the late 1990s. Congrats to the Woot staffer who finally got a new computer to replace their Windows 95 box.

I also got some used computer server parts. A harddrive bay with fan and a case fan with dust. No wonder why the woot servers were slow slow. Clean the dust from your servers!
