They offered a BOC to everyone who would badmouth you. There were no takers. Welcome back! :)

Room shaking? We used to have to pay for that in a coin-op bed. "Magic Fingers"!

...and welcome back. Sorry.

Welcome back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cried...... a bunch, from missing you so much.

@ThunderThighs! As wonderful as it is to have you back, I must say that (fortunately for us, unfortunately for you) you never really went away... Hope you get a true break at some point! (Happy to hear your travels were safe and your son is settled in.)

@morriea: The helicopters were ok. Loud but ok.

The jets waking me up out of a dead sleep were not ok. My first thought was one hell of a thunder clap. My next concern was my dog because she hates storms. The things on my bed stand rattled.

@neuropsychosocial: The first day was just boredom at the airport. After that, I was gone most of the days until I worked rollovers later in the week (planned). It's the most I've been truly away. LOL

Dude! My birthday's Saturday too!

Oh, and welcome back!

@thunderthighs: Well, I'm of the XX persuasion, so "son" is the wrong category... Maybe you had twins but they lost my bracelet in the hospital so they didn't know who I belonged too, so they just told you you had one kid?

Does this mean I get special Woot-employee-family discounts?

@jsimsace: I tried to take the offer.

I woulda shared. Honest.

Hey, @thunderthighs. Welcome back.

You son and my younger daughter share a birthday.

@thunderthighs: Welcome back! Glad you had a safe trip :)

How is this a deal? This is the normal price and.......oh, sorry, welcome back!

Oh hai! Welcome back! :)

Welcome back. So happy to hear you had safe travels but bummer about the earth shaking. @thunderthighs HELLO! Did you hear me? I SAID, WELCOME BACK. SO HAPPY .....

Welcome back! Moving can be rough, so glad all went well.

Mostly, you just missed many deals being posted. :)

@thunderthighs: We call that The Sound of Freedom ;) Try living in the flight pattern! The cool thing was that my husband would fly over the house, rock the wings to "wave" at the kids and I'd know to when to get dinner going,

Welcome back TT! Didn't really miss much, aside from @gatzby giving @inkycatz permission to replace a desk with a dry erase marker stain with a cast iron desk.

@lavikinga: Ha, we lived near Carswell AFB growing up. You'd be talking on the phone when a bomber would fly over. You'd tell the person on the other end to hold on until they passed. Then a minute later they'd tell you to hold while they passed over them.

And once I figured out the world wasn't ending, I did run to the window to get a glimpse of one.

Welcome back! Let's see, you missed the beginning of the POC giveaway (I still haven't scored one), the desk issued (mentioned above and at http://deals.woot.com/questions/details/3c78be11-4fc3-4911-9a28-3d667ae7a0df/help-a-mod-can-you-help-me-fix-my-desk#48) but please post a photo of the new desk that @inkycatz gets, or the tattoo he builds over the stain), and a few unsupervised work hours (http://deals.woot.com/questions/details/23997a2e-e37a-41fc-ab78-36bd8935534b/boss-is-out-for-the-day-now-what#37) and the promise from @Gatzby that you would personally send me a BOC. My address is on file. I'm waiting patiently. Thank you.

Welcome back! Now we can start annoying you with all of our problems again ;)

@belyndag: heck, even on a good day, supervising us is like herding cats. He doesn't need to be out for there to be chaos. Poor @gatzby

What? You want a cookie or something?

@thunderthighs: Oh, I am very familiar with that drill. My Dad still lives across the water from NAS Pensacola, right in the landing pattern. As a kid, it was darned near impossible to sit on the patio and have a phone conversation during flight ops. The trainers are bad enough, but when the Blue Angels are practicing, we have to bring the dog inside to protect her ears. When they're screaming through the sky at low altitudes it makes even MY ears wanna cry.

Welcome back! Glad to hear your son is settled in. Too bad about the shaking and noise, at least you'll be able to get some sleep now that your home....maybe.

vote-for3vote-against

@thunderthighs: Remember - military jets is the sound of freedom.

Spent most of my life living inside their landing pattern. You get so used to it you recognize when something is wrong.

vote-for3vote-against

@thunderthighs: Was it at least cheaper to stay there? I could sleep through that; I was on a carrier and got accustomed to fighter jets taking off and landing just 2 decks up directly overhead. If my fire alarm ever goes off from a real fire, however, I'm toast.

This isn't a question and should be deleted.

It does not follow the rules.

I was going to give you a voicemail but your mailbox was full

@iggz: Wait a minute. You're talking about following rules? Excuse me, I think I feel faint.

Looks like we've both been traveling as of late! It's good to be back!
I've missed this place, as I'm sure you have as well.
Glad you were able to get your son all moved in.

Wow! Thanks everyone for the warm welcome back. Only 7 more upvotes and I reach 100! Woohoo!
