happy hanukkah to all my chosen (and non-chosen) peeps

confession: i am an amazon fangirl. i definitely drink the kool-aid... it's my go-to online source for pretty much everything (and they really do have basically everything). it's really easy to meet the $25 minimum for free shipping, prices are almost always the cheapest around, and customer service is excellent.

i'm very particular about customer service, so that's a huge compliment coming from moi.
i'm especially fond of the "universal wishlist", which allows you to add items from basically any website to your amazon wishlist with a handy browser button. and i've become a little too fond of adding things to the wish list. it's so damn easy!

since the holidays are upon us, here's a sampling of some gifts on the wish list. feel free to send me any of them ;)

(store names in parenthesis denotes item is on a non-amazon website)
Do you use the Amazon wish list?
What's on your wish list?

There are only six nights of hanukkah left. GET SHOPPING, PEOPLES!

[to find anyone's amazon wishlist -just search for their name or email address]
