Curses, I got to the epic adventure at 10 after midnight... Pacific time. Durn it! Next year...
I'd rather be drinking... Oh wait, I *am*!

I'm so glad my wife asked me to go grocery shopping on Wednesday night. We typically go on Friday. I'm doubly glad that I distracted her by taking her clearance shopping at Shopko and Target before we went and did what we set out to do. Had I not, we would have gotten home before 10 PM and I would have been sleeping in my flannel PJs when the adventure began.
As it was, we dragged our tired caracasses through the store, filling two carts with food and household supplies. Of course it had to be Wednesday night, because we had company coming on Thursday. It didn't matter that I had assignments to work on for my graduate program. No, that could wait. Paper towels and cold cuts were calling.
Yes, it's because of that break in our regularly little bi-weekly schedule that brought me, tired, through the door to our house at 11:55 PM on March 31. My wife says I was dancing like a kid on Christmas morning when I saw the adventure begin, but I'm sure it's just that I needed to go to the bathroom after drinking soda and doing all that shopping.
She said I danced even more as I discovered more items, but I'm sure it was just my bladder.
Then I found the Blessing of Commerce, and it was as if time stood still. There was a light from the hallway, and I thought I heard angels singing. I think that's when my wife slugged me. The hallway light was on and the baby was awake. It wasn't the right kind of angel, but an angel nonetheless.
So, I stood there dancing, um, er...waiting for the bathroom until I saw the confirmation page. I don't know how I came down from there. Suddenly, I didn't need to go to the bathroom, and I was tired. When I awoke the next morning, I was afraid it had all been a dream, but it wasn't.
Thanks, woot! Your'e the greatest!

I have absolutely no idea what time I landed there... I started at 1 eastern. What a joy to see the beloved bag and the "I Want One" still there...
Woot, this was genius.. Pure genius. Of course I say that only because I was able to get in on one. But the fact that the gallivanting alpacas were blocked was pure genius.. Or evil, depending upon which side of the fence you're on.(who says machines are smarter than the human brain???)
Thanks guys... It was fun.. Got my monkeys, got my shirt coupon, got my bag... I'm a happy camper.
