Tis the season to be weird, tra la la la

Are you the sort of person who looks in other people's shopping baskets? You know, when you're in queues, you have a wee glance at what they're buying. When you order stuff off Amazon there is a nice wee feature to satisfy that inner noseyness.

I've spent a huge amount of time and nearly all of my salary on Amazon recently and this little gem popped up

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought

Jumpstart!: Literacy - Games and Activities for Ag... by Pie Corbett
4.8 out of 5 stars (8) £9.46
Official Borat Mankini Thong
3.5 out of 5 stars (21) £4.75

At that point I was buying a replacement power cable for my laptop. I don't know why I didn't think to accesorize it with lime green comedy sex wear whilst I sat down to improve my childs literacy. How very vanilla of me.

Aw come on, are you telling me that you don't know someone who'd just love to wear that gorgeous bit of swimwear for you? Buy it, leave it wrapped on your boss' desk with an anonymous card from a male admirer who wants to model it for her. That should keep the old trout busy for a few months and you'd be free to get on with your job!

At the grocery store i look at what people are buying, and i always want to say "why the hell are you eating that shit?"

Heather said...

Haha! and you didn't buy it?!?! How does it come up with this stuff?

There are few things that could not be improved by a lime green comedy sex wear. Every home should have one.

I was wondering what to get my husband for Christmas..... Do they come in any other colours?

Actually, my eldest son already has one of these. I think someone bought it for him as a joke. This is what I tell myself, anyway. ;0)

Mob- I think even either of the divine Davids (Tennant or Ginola) would struggle to pull that off, and to be fair to her, I must be a NIGHTMARE to manage because I always think I know best.

TF - I do like to know what other people ar up to, nosey bugger that I am x

Secretia - I know, I once saw the very famous Scottish rugby player Gavin Hastings in a supermarket in Edinburgh and he had a trolley full of creme eggs and champagne, I wanted to follow him home!

Heather - I am, very, I wonder what people would think of my amazon order, actually very boringly all dvd's and books, my google searches though, now you're talking !

BMTA - I know, I missed a trick then

Madame - what you and M D F do to pass the time in deepest darkest Derbyshire when you're not doing big sums is entirely your own business and I fully support your right to do so.

Mean Mom - hello my dear, I have missed you x I'm sure your husband would look fetching in lime green, you should do another of your Xmas present posts to help us less orgainsed souls

Expat Mum - I know, mixed bag of an order that one was
