Oh, Amazon. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
I love (and at the same time, hate) your continued Cyber Week Lightning Deals, for lo, they offer many shiny things at low prices, but I find it very hard to get up and leave my desk (except when spending hours in waiting rooms, of course) (during which time—no lie—I kept track via iPhone) (it’s an illness). Sure, occasionally you offer a deal on a single glass (ummm…), but in general, you feed my need for price cuts.
But then too, of course, there’s the 17 Days of Video Game Deals, even though today isn’t games, it’s accessories. Those are good, too, I guess. (Though still no price cuts on the Wii remotes, darn it.) (But the FlingSmash bundle is still just $32 and comes with a remote plus, so it’s like getting the remote on sale with a free game.) My Wii thanks you, Amazon.
While the Friday Sale has disappointed, lately, today at least you have a killer deal on Pamela’s Baking Mix (just $29 for 12 pounds when you buy via Subscribe & Save), so we who are gluten-free salute you.
And finally, oh how I wish my children were still little, because Amazon, darling Amazon, you have filled your Gold Box with half-price Melissa and Doug wooden toys, today, and I don’t think my nearly-teen would appreciate a wooden sushi-making set. (Though, given her vegetarianism and her recent rotten behavior, I am tempted.) Still, for those with ankle-biters in the house, what’s better than this adorable play food and other assorted wooden wonders? Well, yes, wrapping paper, sure, but besides that? That’s right; nothing.
