They so get me...

So this morning when I logged into my emails, I got a lovely message from Amazon with their recommendations for me. I believe this is based on previous purchases, but as I read them I thought, "Oh Amazon, you get me..." But then when I read them to Alex, his response was "huh. That's funny. That's pretty sad." So here they are-if you know me, you'll totally get this. I just copied the email, so don't try to READ MORE like it says. But I do have more to this blog on the bottom.

I mean, I totally get all of the Dr. Horrible stuff and even the Mad Scientist stuff, for obvious reasons. But Amazon missed the mark with Cool Runnings...I don't feel the rhythm and I don't feel the rhyme. I only feel Joss Whedon creations. My favorite part is that the rain boots are resistant to MOST chemicals...so probably a pretty solid purchase.

And who doesn't love The Big Green. I bet most people get that in their recommendations.
