0 bags of Texas air
1 black duffel bag

1 Kid's Night Out Bingo cards
1 Krave Sweet Chipotle beef jerky
2 2-pack donut lip gloss
20 4-pack Sanyo AA batteries

Loving the jerky! First Bouts of Consternation that I could eat!



So I type in the 3 letter acronym and Woot auto populates it as "Bouts of Consternation". Did they always do that? Here I was thinking everyone was so clever with their acronyms...

Quite disappointed with my haul this month.

1 Greyish Green XL T-Shirt (yay that will fit)
1 Purple Sunflower Bag (guess I could use that at Costco)
1 Diva Darling Facial Mitt (that makes my total 3 now with 2 now)
1 Spitball Dartboard (eh)
1 SIGG 20 Tablet Water Bottle Cleaner (okay...?)
1 Awesome Looking Chuck Norris Doll (Doesn't talk though...)
1 Dirty Old Dell Keyboard (Saw someone else get this too, seriously? And old keyboard??)

All-in-all not a great box in my opinion. If the Chuck Norris doll actually talked I would have been happier, the T-Shirt at least will be worn. No clue what I'm supposed to do with an old keyboard though/

I got a lot of crap! Thanks Woot!

I got my giant 10.5 lb, 25x16x10 box today:

1 purple sunflower bag
2 packs of AAA batteries (which I had been meaning to buy anyway)
3 bars of citrus lime soap (my wife is thrilled, she's been thinking about getting them for a while, unbeknownst to me)
2 over-the-door hangers in blue and orange (Florida colors, yay)
1 Kids size 10 periodic table t-shirt (perfect for my goddaughter.... eventually)
1 turkey timer
and the biggies:
2 core bamboo serving trays in large and extra large. I have no idea if we'll use them or not, but since they retail at $48 and $60 I'm not exactly upset

Thanks, woot!,

What an adorable kitten! You need to train him early to recognize the boxes, since he will be swimming in crap as he grows, if you keep getting Bouts of Consternation!

My package wasn't scheduled to arrive until Tuesday, but showed up today! We often get it a day early, but not two business days early. Awesome!

6.8 lbs
16 x 12.5 x 12.6



Contents:
6 bags of Texas air
1 purple bag with sunflower
1 plain, teal men's XL shirt
1 pop-up lawn sprinkler
1 metal watch
1 talking Chuck Norris plushie, doesn't talk
1 package of Sigg water bottle cleaning tablets
1 1 lb bag of rubber bands
1 very used Razer Copperhead mouse, works great
1 CD-ROM drive, manufactured in July 2001. Not sure if it works. We're looking into getting the drive open to see if anything's inside.

You have no idea how happy this box makes me. The CD-ROM will probably go straight to electronics recycling but I just love getting the truly random stuff. Much better than our past few -- it's kinda renewed my love for Woot. Hurray!

I only wish that Chuck Norris talked, but he's still amazing anyway.

Also, I don't think you can use it, because you'll need a helmet and other such safety devices. You're just going to have to send it to me. :P

A thought on the taciturn Chuck Norris dolls. The screaming monkeys have a tab you have to pull to activate them. Does Chuck have the same thing?


I don't think so. Haven't taken mine out of the sealed plastic bag, though....which thoughtfully has 4 perfectly-punched out airholes for Chuck, btw. (Who knows---maybe I can auction it off as a new-in-bag collector's item in 20 years???)

Anyway, I can feel the hard mechanism when I press on his belly, but see no way to open his clothes or belt area to get to it. (That didn't sound as dirty in my head!)

The attached tag says nothing about how to make him talk, nor issues any warning about containing a battery----just has general warning against 0-5yrs of age d/t "choking hazard--small parts" + for an adult to remove the plastic wrap before giving to a child. (Hmmmm....I wonder if Chuck would be offended for being referred to as having "small parts"???)

But according to the tag, he is apparently supposed to be able to say,
"If at first you don't succeed, you are not Chuck Norris."
"Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he needs."
"Chuck Norris doesn't wear a watch. He decides what time it is."
"Chuck Norris is the reason Waldo is hiding."
"Chuck Norris is not afraid of death. Death is afraid of Chuck Norris."
"Chuck Norris will never have a heart attack. His heart isn't nearly foolish enough to attack him."
"Chuck Norris' smile once brought a puppy back to life."
"There is no chin behind Chuck Norris' beard. There is only another fist."
"For Halloween, superheroes dress up as Chuck Norris."
and
"Chuck Norris can make a snowman out of rain."

May the Crap be with you all!!!

Yeah, I got a Chuck Norris and I don't see any way to power him up. Woot probably got them for next to nothing since they don't talk. Mine still had a retail price sticker for $16.95, so the stores probably returned them.

I might clean up the old Dell keyboard and resell it. Some people love the old heavy, clicky keyboards. I see this model is selling for around $20 on eBay.

Uh-ohs. Me suspects that one of them might be preggers! Be on the lookout for a girr-key or a donkaffe!!!

That was such a sadly beautiful heart-wrenching love story. *dabs tissue at corner of eye to wipe away my tears*

-opened and nearly complete box of AA batteries
-four 4 packs of AAA batteries
-one bug zapper racket that has already shocked the denial out of me
-three kids size 6 shirts
-one black leather galaxy tab cover
-one turkey timer thermometer
-one purple sunflower tote bag

Thanks Woot! I will be looking for another in the near future.

I think the best way of, er, going in would be, well, through his crotch as his pants are black and there is a seam right there. I think my first choice would be the back of his head where the neck is in the hair since the hair would cover up any second hand stitching. All in all though I have to say I'm surprised at how well made my doll is, makes it difficult to decide where to go in with my crummy home-ec sewing skills.

I just don't see anywhere an opening COULD be, in any of the usual places. He seems to be all sewn up, doesn't he? I think it's probably not meant to be a "replaceable" battery. Tag says he was made in China---land of disposable, temporary toys.

My bundle of cupcakes arrived yesterday and I opened it up today.



I received:
1 bag with sunflower
1 woot question mark bag
1 silver Chinese watch
1 box of sigg bottle cleaner tablets
1 blue fruit of the loom shirt (medium)
1 kershaw compound knife
1 talking Chuck Norris (he chooses not to talk)
1 Diva Darling micro fiber facial mitt
2 odd items of unknown use and origin. Suspected holders for a GPS unit, perhaps?

I am THRILLED with this bushel of cardimum and it might just be my favorite one so far! Thanks Woot!

I'll try and get a closeup pic on here of he mysterious items. Also, my fiance's first box is arriving today and I will use all of my persuasive skills to get her to agree to do an unboxing video as well. :-)

This is both my first post and my first bowl of cheerios! It weighed in at 3.5 pounds and included:

1 royal blue tee shirt (L)
1 spitball dartpad (enemy)
1 pinkdiva darling headband
1 bag krave sweet chipotle beef jerky
1 bag krave lemon garlic turkey jerky
1 terrific turkeyprobe
1 vortex drink mixer with 2 batteries

Scoring my first bevy of canaries the day after the death of my mother-in-law really cheered me up. So thanks WOOT!
