Much appreciated! I got a response, though, and it's being taken care of. (though now I'm left wondering what useless special item you had in mind)

I guess I'm responsible for coining that phrase, up until I posted the going vernacular was "dirty rotten cheater". I figured I'd try and put a little spin on it, I should become a politician

I got my package in the mail today. 3.4lbs. I got mine on day 2 of the Treasure Hunt. I must admit this was a rather sad crap, lol. Here we go:

Got my crap today and i must say i'm impressed.

1x High Peak Sleeping Bag (yay car naps at work :P)

1x Kodak Essentials USB Power Pack (love this! always a dead battery, never an outlet)

1x WOOT! Womens Small T-Shirt (wish it was even remotely my size)

1x Cheapo Duffel Bag (can always use another duffel)

1x Topsy-Turvy Tomato and Herb Planter (who doesn't like fresh tomatoes and herbs?)


Much better than my first crap. I can actually make use of all of the crap other than the shirt, which might fit on my head.

Had my hopes up for some pirate-themed crap, but I certainly can't complain.

Thx Crapbeard!!

Yep, took the whole thing out and no handset. I see where it should have been in the styrofoam, but it wasn't. When I opened the box, I found the empty handset bag on the top. Oh well, that is why they call it crap.

Got my bag yesterday after a delay from my post office, but it was worth it! This Booty of Contraband was right up my alley. It was my first bag ever and I'm kind of sad it was so awesome. If it had sucked it would be easy to say "Ok, I got one, the thrill of the hunt is lost", but instead I'm addicted. I got:

-Women's green "Woot!" shirt, size large (my size!!!)
- Purple floral reusable grocery bag
- Purple 1L/34 oz/1.1 qt Lock 'n' Lock container
- Billy's Bootcamp Bands
- Therapearl hot/cold therapy gel pack
- Giraffe print knife set

Lol, does that go for really cool broken crap too? I was so excited for the RC helicopter but then when I found it doesn't work I was kinda sad. Still will keep trying for more bags though....the excitement was fun.

What seems to be wrong with your helicopter? I thought mine was broken at first too - but then I used the remote to charge it instead of the USB cord and after about 20 minutes I had it up and zipping around the office...

-A string of USB powered LED Christmas lights ($5)

The transmitter (the part that plug into you iphone, ipod touch, ipad, or android) doesn't charge. I triple read the engrish instruction manual (no that was not a typo, it's kinda funny) and even looked up about a dozen youtube videos and tried downloading several variations of the app on both my ipod touch and my android phone. The videos show that the transmitter is supposed to light up once it connects to the helicopter and while charging and neither happen. The instruction manual also says the charger should start blinking while charging and it doesn't.

Lol, I already have two of those, in fact two very angry ones since I am fostering some orphan kittens in the back bedroom who they mistakenly think are new housemates.

I saw a great use for them (any straws) at the Maker Faire. Cut a rectangle of cheese, SPAM, hot dog, or any other similar thingy, LEGO-brick size. Put a straw into the bottom of it (not all the way through) and pull it out. You will have cut a little cylinder. Stick this on the top. Do it again, and you have a little food LEGO brick. Now go make something yummy! (Works with clay too, if you wish, but don't eat that.)

The "foster" kitten I picked up this summer is still here and has made herself part of the family. The elder cat is not pleased. The dog is getting used to it, and she and the kitten sometimes play.

Came home from vacation on Saturday and my Big ol' Candy had been delivered. My very large box contained the following:
(1) black nylon duffle bag
(1) Teva shoes (size 6, brand new) (Too bad I wear size 10)
(1) Green "Woot!" t-shirt, size Large
(1) Barry's bootcamp booty band
(1) 3-pack mini writing pads
(1) 4-pack rechargeable AA batteries and charger.

Overall, not a bad Big ol' Candy Now, does anyone want to trade my new Tevas for something else????

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

I kept meaning to post what I got, but kept forgetting to. Oops. Mine was almost identical to this:

1 - small woman's woot! tee
1 - ? bag
2 - Barry's Boot Camp Bands
1 - 4 piece set of wine glasses
1 - houdini wine accessory kit



Except instead of the wine accessory kit, I had a Learning Resources Gears Gears Gears Crazy Creatures, which will probably wind up going to my nephew. Mine was 8.2 lbs. Not a bad bag, overall.
