I am an amazon woman. There, I admit it. I will not be ashamed and I will proclaim it loud and proud. In the wise words of Popeye himself, “I yam what I yam and that’s all that I yam”. Actually now that I find myself quoting a squinting tough talking pipe smoking cartoon sailor, who quite frankly is just way too happy about spinach and obviously has commitment issues considering he has yet to marry his stick thin baby mama (Oh C’mon! Where exactly did you think Sweet Pea came from), I think my problems may be far greater than simply admitting my lazy shopping habit.
Oh gawsh, what did you think I meant by amazon woman? Yes I believe I am larger than life, but only as it pertains to the online shopping world. Physically I am a measly 5’ 6”, but when I am shopping I feel at least 5’7-½” and that is without shoes, so you can just imagine how tall I stand if I find a bargain while browsing from my kitchen table. Amazon has always been one of my favorite places to search for bargains because it does all the legwork for you. Consequently, because I tend to be lazy and they want to make a profit, this has always worked out rather well for both of us.
I was presented with a new-to-me site today, become.com, that may start giving Amazon a run for its shopping money in my lazy purchasing adventures. This site is its own shopping search engine and is pretty powerful at finding and comparing the best prices on just about anything you can look for. Say for example I look for white striped cuffed and plain duvet, extreme linen bedding, or even something much more fun than bedding and much more likely to increase my height for real, enzo angiolini 'saylem' riding boot macy's it will pull up and present just what I ask for, which is more than I can say for most people I know. It gives you no more and no less and sometimes less is good. Especially less spinach.
I wonder if I can find spinach on become.com? Or maybe self-help books? I think Olive Oil and Popeye may need a push in the right direction.
