Whenever I am in the market for a new item, I like to compare prices online before buying.  Or, depending on what the item is, I may search for patterns to make said item.

Earlier this winter I was looking to buy some new boots.  I Googled winter boots, and low and behold, nearly every website I visited after that had ads for boots.

Last week I was searching for patterns for cloth grocery bags.  Ads for grocery and tote bags are popping up everywhere.

This is not new.  This has been happening for a long time.  I just ignore the ads.  I have never, not even once, clicked on one of those ads.

But this winter has made me a little bit mean.

So now I spend some time each day searching for things like a duck-billed platypus or a dead armadillo or a purple aardvark.  Or maybe a gold plated thing-a-ma-bob or a jewel encrusted doohickey.

Who knew that there was really such a thing as goose down underwear!


  1. Its official, winter has gotten to you. A bad case of cabin fever?? Hang it there Vicki, spring is near. I think, I hope....

  2. Rob... I was about 2/3 nuts before the winter finished me off. Sometimes a bit of general silliness makes it easier to bear.

  3. Gorges...I know. Guilty as charged! heh

  4. Really want to have, Presidential condom packs.

  5. I've noticed the same thing! They are tracking us!! Down filled underwear, huh?! What fun!


  6. Stephen.....That's funny!! I'm just ornery enough to enjoy messing with the ads.

  7. CottonLady...Yes, they are. Probably know every time I sneeze or....whatever! I make it a bit tougher for them because I don't have a cell phone to track.

    Yup, down-filled long johns. I got to see underwear ads for about a week after that one.
