Congrats! I guess it's your turn to have something good happen after the fiasco with your mom's crystal and the sprained ankle and everything.

Oh, and can I hitch a ride with you on the company jet? I'm only a lowly REGULAR black triangle and have never even made it to the top 15, but I will gladly carry your luggage for a free ride!

Congrats! I was elected Sergeant-at-Arms at the Fall meeting. (The bylaws state that the Sergeant at Arms must be a neutral party with no expectations of ever achieving a black triangle. Yep, that's me.) Anyway, have you sent in your paperwork? Meeting times and days are not given out unless your paperwork is complete.

Must keep out the riffraff, you know.

Edit: And NO rides on the jet until you fill out the paperwork. Where is it?

@blgauthier: LOL! I will check to see if I'm allowed to bring servants, er, I mean relatives.

I've been taking advantage of DW postings to replace the things in Mom's crystal curio, and after tearing up my ankle I've been doing a lot of sitting at the computer, so that's probably why my ranking went up, Silver lining, I guess. LOL!

@barnabee: Paperwork! Paperwork? OMGWHEREISTHATPAPERWORK?!?!?!?!

vote-for11vote-against

Don't make promises about rides on the jet just yet; it usually takes about 30 days for the updated roster and reservation schedule to get sent to you. The changes at corp may slow down a bit, though.

You'll also receive instructions on selecting the company car you want from the list of contracted dealers, including what to give them for billing info. Please remember that all insurance costs are yours, though.

The last I heard, the weekly maid/concierge service contract was being renegotiated, so there may be a short delay in that paperwork, also.

I've also heard a NEW benefit is a bright blue light sabre with special engraving on the handle. Haven't actually seen one, though.

So.... CONGRATULATIONS! I'm pretty sure I've never made it into the top 15, let alone the top 3. You've worked really hard to be a valued, contributing Wootizen, and I for one really appreciate all your work finding really good deals. (By the way, did you ever get that funky looking crystal glassware?)

Do not listen! You are the top dog and now must organize the meeting. I will await the details.

@belyndag: Don't let @barnabee spook you about the paperwork. It's really not all that bad. You'll need notarized copies of all the usual stuff (birth certificate, SS card, second piece of proof of citizenship) plus a pint of blood and your first-born child.

That last item was added recently at the specific "request" of Fleet Admiral James Earl Jones. We're not exactly sure why, but :::shrug::: no one questions him about anything so it's now a requirement. If you don't have an available first-born, I understand there's a sort of secret list of people who'd be happy to give you theirs.

@magic cave: Dang! Not sure I can wait for the maid service. A month off of my right ankle has left my house, well, ankle deep in cr*p. Hmmm. I guess the light saber could help with that problem.

I know I've seen you in the top 15 a few times. I don't check often, but I'm pretty sure you've been high on the list. I did order one set of the glassware, and the tracking report says it should be delivered on Wednesday. I will post a review over on the deal post if you like, I hope it's as cool as it looked!

Now I'm off to get fitted for my Valentino-designed evening gown for the awards ceremony. Dang! I have to write that speech, too, thanking all of the little people who made this possible,.....

@magic cave: Hey, I don't make the rules, I just enforce them. By the way, YOU are late with your dues.

@magic cave: MY first born? Oh, it doesn't get much funnier than that. Let's see. He's 27, has ADHHHHHD, anxiety, depression, some OCD, dysgraphia and (drum roll please) Asperger's. Lives at home, works at Game Stop part time. Genius IQ, goofy as heck.... Yup, I think Fleet Admiral Jones could do wonders with him. In fact, since he moderates a couple of Star Wars forums they are probably already acquainted.

On the other hand, if I have to give him up who will cut my grass? Hmmmm. Would they accept my neurotypical second-born daughter, instead? If you can overlook the drama queen factor, she cleans up pretty nice and is kind to animals. ???

Congrats!! Very much deserved! You put a lot of time and effort in to this site, I'm very happy to see you there!!!

Paperwork.....hmmmm.....now I know why when I finally made it I didn't get any special perks!! :)

@belyndag: You're right about the top 15: I reviewed my notes and I was 8th on 6/13/11, 4th on 7/13/11, and 14th on 1/26/13. "Near," but not in the top 3.

vote-for9vote-against

@barnabee: Oversight! Just simple oversight! mumblemumblebloodsuckersmumble

vote-for8vote-against

@belyndag: If you want to offer your daughter, who is NOT the first-born, then it's you who gets to ask Fleet Admiral Jones if he'd make an exception for you.

You do have your legal papers (will, medical surrogate, estate executor, etc.) all in place, right? Not that you'd really need them, of course, but it's important to be prudent. One never knows.

I never attended the "Im #1" meets before. I simply remember the 2-week period that I made it to the #1 spot (across the board.. #1 Overall/#1 Deals/#1 Commentator/Top Yesterday's Pick (which got me an iPod Touch btw) :)

@devexityspace: Was the iPod Touch delivered in the company jet?

vote-for8vote-against

@belyndag: Not at all, I couldn't have accepted such a cheap mode of transportation to receive my free Ipod Touch.

I had @Thunderthighs use the Woot Company JetPack to deliver the ipod touch.

That's also how I received my Cake in a Jar!

I got yelled at in the grocery store for that cake!

Yeah, I took the pictures and forced PemberDucky to go through with it. Which is to say, I did very little apart from being grossed out by the squishing noises.

@pemberducky: It was tasty! and I still have what was not eaten in the freezer.. will be cracking the jar open @ 1year to try it again...

You get to collect dues this month. I'll bring the beer.

Well, the party's over. @conanthelibrarian just slid into first place ahead of me. (sigh) How fleeting was my victory! Ah, well. I guess I was in danger of getting a big head from the shear power of it all.

Ah, well. Maybe this drop will bring an end to the crazy downvoting on some of my deals.
