Adam’s bag of crap

Yes, his bag of crap.

Have you heard of Woot.com? Every day there is a daily deal and then sometimes there is a “woot off” whereas when an item sells a new item is placed for sale right away. This website is Adam’s fav, you see. Apparently, unbeknown to me he has been dreaming of and trying to get their infamous bag of crap for years.  What is a bag of crap, you may ask? Here are the crap commandments listed when you go to try to buy a bag of crap (which is very difficult to do because according to Adam….THEY HAVE SOLD OUT EVERY SINGLE TIME I HAVE TRIED TO BUY ONE FOR YEARS!!!!!)

THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS
I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond ONE bag of some kind and THREE crappy items.
II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s crap turns out to be nicer than yours.
III. Thou shalt take a moment to consider whether you might be better off just not buying this crap.

IV. Thou shalt not expect better crap just because things are different this time. Crap is crap.
V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the crap you want, want the crap you get.

So, needless to say when he successfully got through and purchased a bag of crap he was so excited and watched the tracking number until the very day it got here….even knowing that it weighed 4.18lbs, this $8 bag of crap (that includes shipping and handling).

This is what it looks like when you buy it so I was very disappointed when there was actually no bag in the box. At times it is the simple things for me (only at times, though).

What was in his bag of crap? Mostly crap, you might say. The anticipation of getting it was worth it, though. Kind of like anticipating going on vacation and a whole lot cheaper so that is cool. Here is what he got:

  • Two baby bottles (actually they are fancy ones, too)
  • Ear muffs
  • Two flying monkeys (these would be more exciting if we could use them but we probably shouldn’t because we are thinking they may have had something to do with what started our dog’s seizure disorder). Just kidding, although it could be true but it does freak her out so we can’t use them.
  • An eyeclops projector case (anybody know what this or have a use for this?) ha ha
  • Set of two Aqua Globes to water your plants (all I’ve ever heard is they don’t work)….anyone else heard otherwise????

Here is a picture of the actual loot:

Should have had a paper bag in there...I'm just sayin'

Seriously...if anyone is needing an eyeclops projector bag let us know!

  1. Has Adam ever gone geocaching? If he likes getting a bag of crap in the mail, geocaching would be right up his alley. Anybody can set up a stash of basically crap (in a sturdy, weather-proof container) and hide it in the woods, in the middle of a town, wherever it won’t be disturbed. Then they post the GPS coordinates to any number of geocaching websites and anybody else can go hunting for the cache. The idea is to take a thing, leave a thing. So you might take something like an Eye Clops projector bag (I dunno – just an idea) and exchange it for something else in the box that you like better. Most caches have a sign in sheet, so you can see who else has found it, and from where in the world the people hail. I bet you there are some around your town! We did it in Alaska several times, and some on the east coast.

  2. He hasn’t but he just told me about how when he was in college they did (before the ol’ GPS days) they made them go out with ham radios and using the bearings and distance from the “repeaters” (basically, the towers) this led them to the things that were planted by their professors. AND, even more weird is that I just finished reading a mystery thriller book about geocaching where the people that would go get the item were getting murdered…granted it was NOT a true story!!!

    Just go to your car and I bet you can come back with many bags of crap!!!!
    Prove me wrong and you would be a changed man 🙂

  4. Mother, I totally agree with you. You KNOW I do…even if the guy has surprised me a time or two with a can of green beans or corn for supper when I’ve needed them from his crapped out car!

  5. HAHAHA…. ok you got me there. BUT I must remind you that one Christmas Day we were all at Kim’s and she was out of garbage bags, so I opened my trunk and gave you some large trash bags. Oh and don’t forget that one time Shana was making dinner and said it would be great to have some beans with this, so I went out to my car and got a can beans. And don’t forget that one time you had a computer issue…..well you get the point.
