What does one do while waiting for the Election of the New Pope? Why, go shopping on AMAZON of course! This is what I purchased in the last two weeks. (No, I don't have a car and yes, the UPS man hates me.)
3 bottles of LYSOL Toilet Bowl Cleaner (Buy 2, Get 1 Free!) Only $7.41! I have seen a bottle of this stuff for $4+ at the supermarket, so I think this was a good deal. Free AMAZON PRIME shipping too!
RESCUE Disposable Fly Trap, 2 traps. $5.86 each. This is no bargain but I can't be bothered going to HOME DEPOT either. After about a month, particularly in the summer, you will have collected so many flies in this trap that the bag resembles a smelly bubbling stomach of writhing raisins. Delish!
LIFE AT HOME IN THE 21ST CENTURY. By Jeane E. Arnold, et al. $16.47. An interesting look at the way families live in the here & now. Many many pictures of clutter. Still, you haven't REALLY seen clutter unless you visit a flat in Tokyo.
CASABELLA LOOP 3 PIECE BRUSH SET. $9.62. 3 brushes of varying lengths with extra rigid nylon bristles. I could probably have gotten these cheaper elsewhere, but I like the different shapes & colors.
THE 106 COMMON MISTAKES HOMEBUYERS MAKE (AND HOW TO AVOID THEM). By Gary W. Eldred. 2005. $11.35. A little outdated, but still useful. I purchased this for my brother who is looking for his first home. Since his budget is exceedingly limited, I hope he doesn't wind up with some haunted fixer-upper.
HIGH CRIMES: THE FATE OF EVEREST IN AN AGE OF GREED. By Michael Kodas. 2009. $6.40 paperback. I wish I hadn't bought this deeply depressing book. So far, in the first few chapters, Everest seems to be populated by evil thieving Sherpas. I hope the writing gets more even-handed by the conclusion.
LITTLE CITY DOGS Monthly Flea Control Pills, 12 Lufenuron Capsules $25. I was quite upset when I found that PROGRAM no longer produced the meds I used for my demon-possessed Maltese, so I am glad these suddenly showed up in my search.
