Geek Love
For some reason, I love checking in on Woot, the technology site that sells one techie thing a day.  (Except during Woot-Offs, but that's a different thing entirely.)  It's not like I buy a lot of stuff on it ... just a few cheap things occasionally.  But I have a Bandolier of Carrots, and tukaro gave me his screaming Woot monkey, which is really cool.

Apparently, the Woot for April 20th contained a marriage proposal ... if you click on the picture of the phones for sale, you can even see the ring.  (And she said "yes", too.)

Awww ... twue wuv ....

Current Mood: aww...

You know, when I read your title, I immediately thought of CSI and the Grissom-Sara-Romance (GSR). I have a couple icons that say "Geek Love". I'm so bad.


PS: Screaming woot monkey? Bandolier of carrots?

Sorry ... insider lingo.

1) Every now and then, Woot sells silly stuff. Lately, one of the silly things they've been selling is a small stuffed monkey, complete with helmet and cape, which screams like a howler monkey when you throw it against a wall.

2) One of the items sold occasionally is the "Bag of Crap": a bag with three random items sold for $1 (plus $5 S+H). Sometimes it's typical dollar-store junk; sometimes it's decent stuff; in rare cases, it's the rare jackpot item (a Wii, a plasma TV, stuff like that.)

In Woot's blog, people often abbreviate "Bag of Crap" to "BoC" or "BOC" or "boc". As part of their perverseness, Woot's blog software automatically replaces various abbreviations by other versions of the BOC (e.g. "Bandolier of Carrots").

I admit I was also wondering about the bandolier of carrots. I also admit I thought the aforementioned "GSR" stood for gunshot residue.

and that last line reminded me suspiciously of The Princess Bride...
