My Woot! bag of crap, also know as a BOC, was delivered today. You can read my post about my quest to secure a BOC over on my other blog here. Today's mystery package was pretty much what was advertised...crap! The little box cost $3.00 plus $5.00 shipping for a total of $8.00. The value is not in the actual items that I received, but in the fun I had anticipating the box. I've been watching the Woot! forum closely to see what other people have received. Many got electronics such as DVRs. And a lot of people got things just like mine:
3 Justin & Dave's Would You Rather desktop calendars for 2010
1 Disney Pirates of the Caribbean accesory pouch
1 ATI TV tuner card for computer (no directions or software)
2 High School Musical alarm clocks
I think I'll see if I can figure out how to install the TV tuner in the computer in the back bedroom, but other than that, the rest of the stuff isn't very useful.
I'm reminding myself that it is the journey not the destination that is important. It's the fun of participating with 2, 997 other people in guessing what might be in our packages. Now that Santa has left the presents, I'm feeling that Christmas letdown...and there's not much to play with.
Oh, sorry, I forgot...I'm grateful, really grateful!
