But once again I digress. The point is, now that I've spent all that time on Amazon looking up some of the things you can buy online, the good people at Amazon (or I suppose more correctly their "cookies") have latched on to me. I received an email from them the other day with some interesting choices. Would I like to buy that Mountain three wolf moon t-shirt? Or how about some fresh whole rabbit? Mmm yummy. I'm sure that mail-order rabbit will be extra tasty and just as fresh after the 3 weeks it takes to get from the West coast of America to the West coast of Australia. I particularly liked their suggestion of the Accoutrements Yodelling Pickle and the Bacon-shaped adhesive bandages.
Amazon could make some improvements to their cookies. Like figuring out I live in Australia - it shouldn't be hard. They can work it out when I buy something only to be told right at the end of checkout that it doesn't ship to my location! Fresh whole rabbit seems to be okay though?
My list of recommendations looks pretty interesting too. Besides the above mentioned items Amazon recommended the following things I have never looked at:
- Thor lighting hammer (cool)
- Avengers Hawkeye Special Big Bad Bow (it didn't seem that big, or bad, it was definitely a bow though)
- The Scion of Abacus, Part 5 (of 6) (I have no idea what this is and have never read Parts 1-4?)
- Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel (come on, I'm not that nerdy ... though it does sound interesting)
- Writing Children's Books For Dummies (now that's just insulting)
- 80's Black Short Fishnet Gloves (of some concern)
So there you have it. Truth be told, in and amongst the weird stuff, there was some pretty good stuff too. I think I just need to spend a little bit of time refining my recommendations and they might actually be useful.
Still, I'm disappointed none of these were recommended.
