Your wish is my quagmire
Surprised I didn't see this sooner, even though I've been /away.

yendi just mentioned (via this link) that Amazon has just changed its wishlist linking policy.

The best part about this? If you have the Amazon cookie, you won't be able to tell that your wishlist isn't working.

So, if you have a link to your Amazon Wishlist on your userpage or whatnot, get a friend to check it for you.

And replace "wishlist" with "registry" so that your link looks like this:

http://amazon.com/o/registry/357LO9R1W8U50

(That's mine. You'd replace the "357LO9R1W8U50" part with your user ID-- which would be the number that directly follows the characters "?id=" at the end of your wishlist url "?id=" (?id=blahblahblah).)

Check the onfocus link above for further details.

M's recovering well in the hospital. They removed her gallbladder and a chunk of her intestine laparoscopically yesterday.

I don't know when she'll be up to having visitors. I'm planning on seeing her tomorrow. If she doesn't like it, tough.

She's on morphine. I could take her in a fight.

There's this really great band that P and I were going to see when I was last in Florida, we were on the guest list and everything, but we blew it off for some schmoopy alone time with each other. (I regret it not one bit.)

They're on tour, and will be playing up here tomorrow night. I'm on the guest list and everything! And I should really blow it off. For my Mistress.

My Mistress Theatre. Show goes up Friday. We're woefully underprepared. It'll be OK, though it's probably best to get a decent night's sleep on Thursday.

I may have to just go for an hour or two for the helluvit. Listen to the beginning of their band bio:
Drawing their uncanny power from the rays of Earth's yellow sun, the Know How have been giving Gainesville all the silly string, inflatable animals and hot, buttery rock and roll the world desperately craves.

Heck. How am I supposed to resist that?

P knows the drummer pretty well. And they really do rock. I may have to stop in to say hello and skunk it up a bit just on principle :)

There were other important things I needed to say. But I've since forgotten them.

I need to relax eventually. Maybe I'll take it easy tonight.

After I do all my xmas shopping on Amazon. And clean the tub. And do some laundry. And stuff.

Hope you're all well and happy :)

I'm feeling all kinds of: Very thankful to one Mister Vidicon for making my day that much easier
What I hear: BFF - She don't use jelly (Vaseline)

Is working fine!

I was a bit concerned for about half a second-- when links aren't working, they'll often read the viewer's cookie and pull up his or her wishlist instead, and I have the Hofstadter book on my list, too! But nope, I'm not Scott. :) Which is as things should be!

Ah! I may have snatched that particular book from your list! (I loved reading GEB)

Thanks for checking! :)

har har. You have _NO_ fucking idea how screwy amazon is.

If you don't know exactly what i'm talking about, you'll find out soonish.

M's recovering well in the hospital??

*rubs eyes and looks again*

Did I miss something? When the hell did that happen? LOL

I hope she enjoys the morphine. My Mom couldn't take it after getting her knee replaced, it made her sick [which proves my point that my Mom would never make a good druggie]. Please extend my well wishes for a speedy recovery to Miss M [and ask her if I can see her scar later... hehehe ;)].

I've never had an Amazon wish-list thingy. I suppose I should really try that some time.
