It’s a twofer: a sale and a blizzard

Thank goodness for the Amazon Friday Sale. If not for it, all I’d have to look forward to today would be the nor’easter that’s supposed to blow through tonight!

(New England’s motto: “Just when you thought it was over, it’s Winter. Again. Surprise!”)

Except… what’s this? The Friday Sale doesn’t appear to be up yet. I’ll check back after I get the kids off to school. There just has to be a Friday Sale today. Did you not read the part about the blizzard, Amazon? Sheesh. I give, and I give, and I give… and this is how you repay me?

[Edited, 12:24 pm: I’m back from visiting the grocery store along with the rest of the world. The snow is just starting to hit, here, and the Friday Sale appears to have finally shown up. I’m just thrilled because pirate booty is on sale. Woo!]

[Also: Not related to the pirate booty in any way, but I just stumbled across this bikini line trimmer at a great price. Don’t ask.]


  1. Link just goes to the outlet? That’s a weird friday sale.

  2. Mir,
    I’m waiting for the storm too. So far… nothing. And this after the forecast said we should expect 8-16 inches!

  3. Waiting, waiting, waiting… for the blizzard and the sale. Moreso the sale. 😉

    I called hubby and told him to get home early from work since the snow’s supposed to get heavier as the day progresses, so they’ve just GOT to get the sale up soon so I don’t get caught shopping if he does come home early!

    A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, mmkay? Hee hee 😉

  4. What a way to ruin a Friday! Don’t those people know our lives depend on this sale? We should all send emails of complaint.

  5. This can’t be happening… NO SALE??

  6. Just sent them an email. “Hey! Where’s the Friday Sale!?!?” They better have a good excuse! 😉 Letting us all down…

  7. Looks like they’re starting to bring it up. It’s hit and miss on working pages, but something’s there now.

  8. It’s up! Hurray. I also sent them an email — maybe they will let Mir know why it was so late?

  9. Here’s what Amazon wrote:

    Thank you for writing to us at

    We apologize for any frustration you’ve experienced while using our
    web site regarding Friday Sale. It is certainly not our intention
    for our customer to have anything but a pleasant experience at

    Hence for convenience I have listed the link below.

    The link for Friday Sale:

    We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience.

    We appreciate your business and hope that we will see you again soon at

  10. Great price on the trimmer. Would it be tasteless to give it as a gift? ‘Umm, last summer I noticed a few spiders in your bikini area while we were at the pool, and I saw this and thought of you. Happy birthday!’ I need one for myself, but it would need the power of a weed eater.

  11. OMG…Stephanie’s comment made me laugh out LOUD! 🙂 The things a true friend will do, eh?

    Earlier I was laughing at the fact that people actually posted reviews of the product on TMI

    Happy Friday, all!

  12. So that would make this post a pirate booty call?

  13. I come for the bargains — but I stay for the laughs. Stephanie, ouch! (Snorting coffee out nose)
