@perkalicious11: Noooo, not the Disney Princess software!! :D

Albino monkey? Does it glow in the dark?

vote-for2vote-against

I am waiting...I will stay home all week to wait if I have to.

vote-for2vote-against

@angstangel: no, he's just white instead of brown. Still has the pink feet. :) Now that you mention it, though, I should sit him in front of the window and make sure he won't glow... I'm not positive, I just assumed!

@hobbit: I'm worried my taste in items may translate to pure crap for you. I hope not!

vote-for2vote-against

@perkalicious11: It isn't like I had to pay for this, well not true shipping to the next person is a cost right?

vote-for2vote-against

@perkalicious11: Just wondering, because I got a glow-in-the-dark monkey during Woot's Choose-Your-Own-Adventure thing a few months ago, and your description seemed to match mine (pink feet, yep!). :)

vote-for2vote-against

@hobbit: true, The shipping outbound was $14 and change. It was a fun experience, though. I loved the items I picked out; I laughed at the items I didn't, and I had a blast going through boxes (I'm still not unpacked from moving 8 months ago) to dig out stuff to throw in.

@angstangel: our "albino" friend in now gazing out the window. I'll let you know how that goes. :)

vote-for2vote-against

@perkalicious11: If that monkey does not glow, let me know and I will send out a replacement.

Attention Track #2 -

PLEASE, someone, anyone, take that software and contact me if you need more. Like perkalicious11, I have 5 more copies of that software at the house (dang BOC) and I have boys.

vote-for2vote-against

if @theoneill555 runs out, I'd happy unload my copies of the Disney Princess Movie Software also.

vote-for2vote-against

So what is the Disney Princess software? All my kids are four-footed and furry but I have 3 nieces and the youngest one, 7 years old, is definitely a Princess. Of course, with 6 older brothers and 2 older sisters I cannot blame her.

I have started gathering stuff for the box when it gets to me, my box is getting full too.

vote-for2vote-against

@jazcat: The Disney Princess software likely refers to the CDs shown in this BOC post here:
http://www.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=3989772

Unfortunately, they can only be used with the Disney Flix camera, I believe (hence the uselessness for many people).

ETA: @theoneill555: Beat me by a minute!!

vote-for2vote-against

@theoneill555: i'm surprised you didn't put all 6 of the Disney flix software in at once lol

i plan to create some sort of ridiculous art sculpture out of mine. we'll see how creative i get :)

vote-for2vote-against

@smtatertot13: I was really tempted to dump the other five in the box but held myself back. I did throw in everything from the last BOC including a couple of things out of cereal boxes (woot staffers must eat a lot of cereal as lots of people got the same things I did).

I really wanted to put some of my woot aqua globes in the box but all the boxes I had were either too small or waaaaayyyy too big.

vote-for2vote-against

@perkalicious11: The package has arrived!!! and my stuff going in looks like treasures compared to what has come out! more later, I am still going through, and the poor wee box is going to need a replacement it was bunged up a lot.

vote-for2vote-against

Is there anything in box 2 that is supposed to go on?

vote-for2vote-against

Not from me, anything I put in can vanish anywhere along the tracks that it likes.

Someone needs to take that shirt (woot sent it to me by accident and then told me to find it a good home). It might make a good nightshirt or mucking around in the garden shirt.

And I repeat - PLEASE, SOMEONE, ANYONE, take take software!!

vote-for2vote-against

Dang kids logging on and using my computer and not logging off. I have got to learn to check the login before I post. @ichigodiafuku belongs to dopey college kid #2 and he tells me he logged in to buy the 3D birthday shirt.

vote-for2vote-against

@theoneill555: okay and I was just about to ask.....and You are???? cause you aren't on the list. Sadly I am not taking the software.

I did take the Pirates Plate
Magic Towel
Beatles Mug
Key Chains
the F'n Vodka Bottle Opener
A Woot Shirt
And some other things. It is 4 am I forget.

Posting to track the journey.

vote-for3vote-against

@hobbit: was thinking of you when I put the shirt in, as you say you have a kitty

vote-for2vote-against

@ravelazquez you have a PM...very important. Must have response before Friday.

vote-for2vote-against

So forgive me here, but how does one find their way onto a mailing list for said offalness?

vote-for3vote-against

@mmaurice01: Over a month ago a discussion came up about the different mystery boxes being offered. lavikinga came up with an idea of a chain BoC and a group of people jumped aboard (as this is an act of trust, a limited amount of people were chosen to participate in the first round). To reduce the length of time from start to finish, the group was then divided into two. It is unknown at this time if there will be another, as each track has only reached its' second destination.

vote-for2vote-against

@theoneill555: Hey thanks for explaining that - I was wondering what I'd missed along the way. :) Much appreciated!

vote-for2vote-against

@hobbit: Replied to PM.

Thanks! Can't Wait!!

vote-for1vote-against

Just wandered into this thread. Sounds like an interesting road.

Should the track need to extend its reach in the future, I would create a station here. (Full rules and notes links would be requested.)

vote-for2vote-against

@ravelazquez: package is mailed. It should be there by Thursday!

vote-for2vote-against

WOOT WOOT!! The Awful Offal #2 Train has left this station.

Mailed yesterday to sand4me.

vote-for3vote-against

@hobbit & @sand4me: PM'd you.

@theoneill555: Sadly, I also passed on the disney software.

Heads up for the future stops...I reinforced the box with a bunch of heavy duty packing tape, but the box will definitely need to be replaced soon.

I took:

The imitation slap chop - I needed the space that it took up in the box.
Sounds of Nature CD set - we'll see if I can get my anxious dog more comfortable with the sound of thunder now!! :)
Pink & Vines CDs
Funky stuffed penguin bear, (again - the dog thanks you!)
Jumbo paper clips
2 books
keychains
bottle openers
and
emergency poncho

I put in a bunch more stuff. It was all quality crap. Hope some of you find at least some of that stuff useful.

vote-for2vote-against

@ravelazquez: Oh boy, its getting closer. I have a nice box, almost brand new, if you don't have one @sand4me. It is actually an official Woot box.

That Sounds of Nature CD is a great way to acclimate your dog to thunder noises. Put it on very low, start with a track before the thunder, and just act totally nonchalant, continue doing whatever you were doing, ignore the dog, when the thunder comes on. As the dog gets more used to the sound increase the volume. Should work great.

vote-for2vote-against

@ravelazquez: got your pm and for some reason i can't send back

vote-for2vote-against

@jazcat: I am looking forward to getting my ABoO - yes!! And, I have a Woot box out in the garage if beloved husband has not given in to the temptation to recycle it. Have you sent me a PM on the other side with your address, etc? I <3 surprises...

vote-for2vote-against

@ravelazquez: Thanks, really looking forward to its arrival!

vote-for2vote-against

@ravelazquez: The funky stuffed penguin bear was one of my contributions. I'm glad someone (hi pup!) will get some use out of it. It was going to be part of a Christmas present for kiddies in the ex's fam, but I forgot to wrap them and never returned them. Perfect for Boxes of Offal.

Glad someone else could get some enjoyment out of all my liquor promo items too. ;)

vote-for2vote-against

@jazcat: That's exactly the way I was going to use the sounds of distant thunder CD!

Though, there is some research that states it is not the sound that upsets some dogs, and I think mine might be that way. But, it is worth a try. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

vote-for2vote-against

@perkalicious11: Sent you a PM.

I was wondering if one person along the way worked in the liquor industry in some way, or if the list was composed of a bunch of party people. :)

You DO work in the liquor industry in some way - right?? I don't want to make it seem like I am conducting an intervention!

We had out of town visitors and needed bottle openers - perfect timing!! Saved me a trip to the store.

Oh and the penguin bear - my dog liked it a lot. My dog doesn't destroy stuffed toys, but he did undress this one. One of my cats was tossing a penguin foot around and having an awesome time with it, so two of my pets had a fantastic time with your offal.

If I use a bottle opener to open a can of cat food - it would make my other cat happy, so you could say all of my pets benefited from your contribution. :D

vote-for2vote-against

Let me repeat myself - SOMEONE TAKE THAT SOFTWARE!

@perkalicious11: you seem to have gotten the short end of the stick, so there is another item on it's way to you.

vote-for2vote-against

@theoneill555: I will take the software! And any more that anyone wants to send me. I am starting our Angel Gifts program for December for children - my 21st year at it - and we always have little girls who want Disney princess stuff. We take donations from all sources! Thanks in advance.

vote-for2vote-against

@sand4me: If there is more than 1 copy of that software in the box and I could impose upon you please leave me 1. I have 3 young nieces and I am sure they would love it.

vote-for2vote-against

@sand4me: If you want to leave the software in the box for @jazcat, I will send you my other 5 copies. Send me a PM with where you want them sent and I will ship them off next week.

vote-for2vote-against

@theoneill555: Will do and will let the one in the box continue on to JazCat. Thanks.

vote-for2vote-against

@jazcat: Please check your PM. 3 nieces, huh? Hmmmm, what could I put in the box?

vote-for3vote-against

@sand4me: I believe I have 5-6 copies of that software also. PM me your address and I'll send them your way!

@theoneill555: it arrived today. You didn't have to do that, but thank you! The other mini-monkeys are excited to have a shrieking role model. Also, my coworkers think I'm nuts. ;)

@ravelazquez: I'm glad your animals and out-of-town guests liked my offal! ;) Yes, I worked in the liquor industry for a number of years. No intervention needed! :P

vote-for2vote-against

@perkalicious11: So you are the one that provided my favorite bartender with her Effen Vodka Opener, which she loves.
