Because I wanted to experiment with the Amazon developer interface and because I want people I’ve never met before to buy me stuff, I have integrated my US Amazon wishlist into PooterGeek (over to the right and down a bit). A random entry from it should appear each time you reload this page. I also added a set of bodyfat-measuring bathroom scales to my UK wishlist today and found that “customers who shopped for this item” also shopped for Avril Lavigne’s latest album. I’m sure Britain’s marketing masterminds are reassured to know that the Bridget Jonesing starts young.

*shudder* bioelectrical impedance (as measured by a home scale)is a ridiculously inaccurate way to measure body fat. Then again, women have a ridiculously inaccurate way to measure body fat. There are days when we feel as wide as a church choir and the scale says we’re underweight, there are days when we feel incredibly waifish and the scale says we weigh just about the same. I threw out the bloody thing and decided to stay true to myself. 😀
