@djohnson64055

I want to thank you for the hard work and organization. My life is easier because you took on the task.

vote-for13vote-against

Thanks for the fun. I'm getting giddy just packing my things up to ship off later today. Hopefully the person whose name I got will enjoy my crap.

vote-for10vote-against

I am changing my crap as I've just found some 2012 calendars I had packed away.

vote-for10vote-against

We look forward to the reports.

vote-for12vote-against

Package dropped off at the front desk for pick up today.

vote-for11vote-against

Argh! I haven't gotten everything together yet because I was waiting for the final email with the name, address, etc.! I might not get it in the mail until tomorrow. (sigh) Always late.

Edit: And I just found my email with the name I "drew." My package has a LONG way to go! And now that I know what part of the country it will go to, I might need to change a few plans. Hmmmm.

vote-for12vote-against

Just FYI from the email sent: "Remember BOCs should go out no later than Saturday, and they need to have some sort of tracking on them."

I also am in the "waited for name before sending package" boat so mine will not likely go out until Friday or Saturday. In my opinion a 1 day turn around between getting an email and package sending is a bit ridiculous.

Would someone mind explaining what this is exactly?

I am in the same boat as the 2 above me. I was waiting to see who was designated to get mine before I put one together. I'll get it sent out tomorrow (since I actually have until the 15th)

I am so excited!

@sgtgreeneusmc: A bunch of dorks with excess crap and money to ship said crap sending each other crap. What a bunch of maroons! :) (smiley face means I ain't really hatin') I didn't have the shipping dollars nor did I really want strangers knowing my name and address. Should be fun for the able and willing, though.

Personally, I only accept 100% pure woot brand crap. Undiluted and straight from the source. Beware of imitators; accept no substitutions.

vote-for6vote-against

I am super psyched!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got all intimidated when I saw the name I drew, and I am going to augment before shipping my crap out tomorrow.

vote-for7vote-against

Got the emails, I'll be sending it out tomorrow!

With respect to tracking, should I just send a PM to my recipient?

vote-for11vote-against

I made a shiny map in case you're curious: http://goo.gl/maps/P1Ymw

@bogie21: Oooh! SHINY!

I just realized that I am representing Cajun Country all by my lonesome. What a tremendous responsibility! I'm heading out to our overpacked storage area now to see what kind of non-Woot goodies I can add to the box!

Woot on, Wootizens!

vote-for7vote-against

@morriea: couldn't agree more! @djohnson64055, thank you for all of your hard work.

vote-for5vote-against

@bogie21: That is super cool! But I think it thinks that MO is Montana.

vote-for7vote-against

I will be putting it together tonight as I pack up for the weekend. If you end up with a pair of socks or something like that, don't be upset.

vote-for7vote-against

@erinaine & @bogie21:

FYI. MO is Missouri. MT is Montana.

vote-for7vote-against

@studerc: How about extending the deadline to Monday?

vote-for8vote-against

I'm so excited! I'm in the "waiting to see who I drew" camp before I finished packing it up, so mine will likely go out on Saturday (its also hard to hit the post office on a work day for me). Thanks again to @djohnson64055 for putting it all together :)

vote-for7vote-against

When are we supposed to get the emails with addresses? I haven't gotten mine yet....

vote-for6vote-against

@barkwoot, @erinaine Yeah, failed at geography apparently. Fixed, just refresh map if you're already loaded it.

vote-for6vote-against

@slacker44: I can't find your email where you sent in your name and address...

vote-for6vote-against

@djohnson64055: Just forwarded the email to you again. Bummer!

vote-for8vote-against

@erinaine: I got one of those names too. Wish I had gotten a name that wasn't as active here but crap is crap. A motto we live by.

vote-for11vote-against

@djohnson64055: I was a little shocked that we allowed users that never have posted here or on Woot! to join. Unless my info is wrong, my name just created an account this month. What to do? Still send crap to some one that may burn the person that they drew?

vote-for10vote-against

@xarous: If they don't send, I have their email, woot name and address....we can heckle them into submission hopefully.

If they don't play nice, they won't be participating in any future ones that I do, that's for sure. And I am sure among the active members we will make sure you are taken care of.

vote-for5vote-against

@djohnson64055: Thanks. I will send out crap as intended just hope it is welcomed at their home and they pay it forward.

vote-for9vote-against

Special thanks to @djohnson64055 for managing to fit me in even after my email got lost in the shuffle. Appreciate it!

vote-for5vote-against

I have had my crap packed since day one. Hope my recipient has a really crappy day! ;-) Will be shipping this afternoon.

vote-for9vote-against

@maggie3052: I kind of liked that I got someone who has been here for a while. I can look at some of the questions they have asked in the past to get a better idea of what to send.

vote-for9vote-against

For possible future ones (I hope!), we should include our t-shirt sizes. I know I would like to know my mystery recipient's size. . . . And the possibility of future BOC exchanges gives me a good reason to (continue to) BUY 3 when it's a really good deal.

vote-for8vote-against

@conanthelibrarian: Great minds think alike!! I did that and included a few of his favorite things. Not everything in the box is crappy.

vote-for5vote-against

@djohnson64055: Well, I guess the blonde really went all the way to my brain on this. I must have misread the rules for the original request. I thought we were to send an email saying we want to participate. After it was received, we'd get back a list of rules and THEN if we wanted to participate, we'd send back our real name and address. Oh, well.

vote-for6vote-against

@lumpthar: That would help me, although I still should be able to get mine out by Saturday.

vote-for7vote-against

Already at work when the email arrived, so mine will ship tomorrow.

vote-for7vote-against

Just finished packing! I like the contents, but I am partial :).

vote-for6vote-against

@lavikinga: That was how I read it as well so it wasn't just you. (I am currently between housing so I didn't sign up at all)

"I am going to set a drop dead date of 8/31. If you have not emailed me before midnight 9/1 (central time...so same time as woot changes items) at bocexchange2012@gmail.com you will not be included in this round.

I will send out the "guidelines" for the BOCs and if you still want to play you can reply to that email with your name, address and username."

"Just a reminder, if you want to participate in the Wootizen BOC exchange you need to send me an email at boCexchange2012@gmail.com before midnight on Friday. I will be sending out the rules this weekend and you can decide then if you want to participate or not.

All I need is an email saying you are interested at this time, I will get all the other details from you later."

vote-for6vote-against

Box is packed. Tomorrow's mail. I added the email that is being used for this exchange as a contact with Pack n' Ship, so updates will be sent...sorry, extra stuff to go through for overworked, underpaid organizing committee of one!

vote-for7vote-against

Crap is boxed, sealed and addressed. Going out in tomorrow's mail. I hope the recipient thinks it's extra crappy!

vote-for7vote-against

Well, I spent most of the day sweating through a storage building cleanout with DH. He has some terrific industrial and safety supplies I was going to include in my BOC, but then I got my assigned name and realized that the items I had in mind probably wouldn't be appreciated. Yeah, I know that crap is crap, and I assume that the Woot BOC Rules would still apply. Ah, heck. I'm gonna toss a few of those things in, anyway. At least it will make my package different from the others out there. Still doing a little recon on my intended recipient to see if I can include some items that will be used. (I feel like such a stalker!) Tomorrow is a busy, busy day for me, but I should get my BOC in the mail by Saturday, for sure.

Woot! Woot!

vote-for8vote-against

Got my name today, did a little stalking around on their questions, comments and voting habits. Hopefully I can include a few 'special' things this person will really enjoy. I have to say, this is the most fun I've had in a while. Going to adjust what I had already packed, take some pics, and box it up tonight. I will mail it tomorrow on my lunch break. Weeeee, can't wait!

vote-for8vote-against

I got caught up at work and wasn't able to send my package today like I'd planned. I'll just do it in the morning.

I'm a bit nervous. I did some research on my person's deals and questions, and I THINK that they might like a couple of the things I included, but I'm also pretty sure that there are a couple things that'll get a "what the heck?" Hopefully they can be regifted or donated to a charity or something. I dunno.

vote-for7vote-against

I have a few people who aren't able to get their BOC in the mail until early next week. So if you have a problem getting it in the mail this weekend let me know so I can let your recipient know as well.

vote-for5vote-against

@djohnson64055: I don't seem to have an email of any kind explaining who I should send a BOC to. Can you drop me a note and let me know if I'm in or if I'm out?

vote-for7vote-against

BOC sealed, addressed, and postaged. I love USPS Click-N-Ship.

vote-for5vote-against

Mine is on its way to some backwoods town in some backwards state (EDIT: JUST KIDDING - SHEESH!). UPS says it should be there by Tuesday.

vote-for4vote-against

All boxed up and ready to go out the door to UPS. I can't afford to send it USPS, but at least it's not SmartPost! I think I may have gone a little overboard, but hey, it was lots of fun and I still probably have enough crap in my house to do it 2 or 3 more times. I hope my intended enjoys it.
