who does amazon think i am?

Hello, Amazon. You're good for lots of things, you know? I can buy books from you, maybe music... okay, mostly books. No one here is complaining. Not counting the whole "taking business away from independent booksellers" thing, of course.

Anywho, Amazon, I'm beginning to wonder if somewhere in your stratosphere, you got your wires crossed about me. You used to send me emails about things I've actually bought. Now, you keep sending me this:

Seriously, it's come twice, now. I blame this post by K. Marie Criddle, and myself for following the link at the end. Now Amazon thinks I lurrve baby unicorns. Well... I guess that's not too far from the truth. I do prefer narwhals.
Arctic mint!
In other news, the very same K. Marie Criddle is moving to Japan, and giving away books about origami and (of course) unicorns in honor of it. You know you want to be a part of that (also, her blog is super fun, if you're not already aware).

But, word to the wise? Be careful about what links to Amazon you follow. Pretty soon, they'll be sending you emails from their "Preschool department," as well. Ha.


  1. Oh my gosh! How much do I love you?? A million plush castles full of unicorns. Thanks for the shout out! I am going to have to order a case of that narwhal candy, now. All the goodness without the poaching!
    BTW, love your blog. Consider me an official stalker now. :D

  2. Official stalker status accepted! :)

  3. That's how youtube is as well. Watch one stupid video and they think you want to watch everything they have on the subject.
    Good heads-up in case I start shopping on Amazon.

  4. I think this is much less a case of who Amazon thinks you are and much more a case of how in the heck did Amazon tap into your deepest desires. Amiright, or amiright?

    Also, holy pants, did you SEE that K. Marie CRIDDLE is stalking you?!? BAH!

  5. My husband is addicted to Amazon. It was quite the problem for a while. Packages were coming everyday, like letters from Hogwarts. And it's not even exciting stuff. When I log on to amazon I see books recommended for me and wires for my husband. Wires? Who buys wires online?

  6. Amazon has us mixed up, I believe ;)
