You really can get anything at Amazon!

While looking at my Amazon reports this morning, I note that someone bought this, and thought, “wow, you really can get everything at Amazon!” Then I whispered up a prayer for your intention, whoever you are!

I love to check out the Amazon reports, because people order things I would never have known exists. Like these adorable little bowls and this egg poacher. My egg poacher first belonged to my birth mother. It’s about 60 years old and beaten up, and two of the little poachy cups are lost, so I use the one remaining to mold disposable poaching cups out of tin foil. But it’s a pain in the neck to do that, so we don’t eat many poached eggs, which is a shame, because they’re good for you.

One year, someone ordered two of these at Christmastime, and I liked it so much I picked it up for a niece who still uses it. Although I seem to remember the thing being much cheaper, back then.

So, I note two of you have picked up Breviaries, for praying the Liturgy of the Hours! Good for you! I need to get back to podcasting.

Now, what is this thing? I thought it was a passport-holder (and I liked it because it’s red, and as you know, everything good in Lizzie’s life is red), but it says it has a hard-drive, so -being technodumb- I am clueless.

And this netbook with 8 hours of battery life. 8 hours? Really? It’s cute! How much cuter would it be in red?

This flippy camcorder thing looks good, does anyone know about it? I’m thinking it’s the sort of thing you’d want at a tea party! Heh.

It’s clear that after trying her incredible and easy recipes, several of us have the same idea about Ree Drummond’s cookbook. That’s going to be a Christmas present from me to many, this year.

Also, those of you who wondered about our friend Dick Meyer’s book, Why We Hate Us, but were waiting for the paperback, well…here it comes!

Well, I just wanted to thank y’all again for using this site to portal through to Amazon (and to Aquinas and More (best place to get Magnificat, among other things) and -naturally- the Mystic Monks) the kickbacks generated through your purchases help keep the site going, and Buster in college (say a prayer for him; he has a lot going on!).

And thank you, also, for buying your soaps, lotions and incredible lip balm from the Summit Nuns, whose kickbacks come in the form of prayers, and more prayers, which we all can use! :-)
