Kind of anti-climactic, I agree. I was really looking forward to the purple-hue debut.

The cake is most definitely a lie... And agreed, I thought they were gonna hit us with some purple love.

I just came here to post on that thread and ask the same thing. Since you started a new thread (Thank you!) I'll just add my question to yours. Where is my purple? I was really looking forward to this and now I haz a sad.

I understood it to be Thursday-to-Friday's midnight

@arevan: Maybe, but then it would be midnight on Friday, not midnight on Thursday as was said. A lot of people have a hard time figuring that out, but at midnight, it is the next day of the week, even if you're still thinking of it as *......day night.

TGentry said it's Thurs-Fri midnight.

So... the other Thursday, that isn't Thursday at all and is actually Friday. That's when we will have the purple!

@thumperchick: That's when we hope we'll have The Purple: I just told @narfcake, don't count your purple chickens before they debut! :)

But yes, Friday midnight would have been a more accurate description of the launch date for PURPLE IS THE BESTEST EVER sale!

It would have been so much easier to say " Friday, 1:00 AM Eastern."

Depending on the design I would wear it!

@lavikinga: I agree.
East Coast time rules all time.

The other midnight. Look back tonight.

@j5: GMT combined with daylight savings time frightens and confuses me, especially when I'm traveling through time zones.

It's kind of sad. We asked which midnight it was going to be. No one would tell us. So, I stayed up late last night/this morning. And no purple palapalooza.

NOW, we are told it's the other midnight. Too bad. I'm going to be too tired to stay up late tonight. Way to go Woot! Nice way to treat your customers.

Yes, I'm cranky. Seems like I didn't have enough sleep.

@barnabee: It turns out I've been working here, what, a year and a half and I still tend to goof these things up too - totally not just you. I was also looking forward until I realized.

For realsie, wasn't malicious.

I didn't want to presume which kind of adorable animal camera would help lighten your day so I found a site that compiles lists and links of them.

@inkycatz: You are too kind. I hope you stick around here for a long time. I'm sure it must be hard to put up with us grouchy wooters.

As for animal cams, I'm an owl watcher. The Pot Plant Owl cam (South Africa) just shut down, Wednesday. Their eggs were not viable this year. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

@lavikinga: Time zones aren't that confusing...

vote-for4vote-against

@narfcake: That's what you think until one day you cross the international date line and realize that somehow, some way, you've missed your own birthday. I'm lucky if I can figure out what day it is some days let alone Zulu Time, although I DO understand/use military 24 hour time. Go figure.

vote-for5vote-against

i don't even know what day it is anymore.

@pemberducky: If it makes you feel any better, to me tonight is "Thursday at midnight". :)
