Sneaky amazon, nosey google...grrr

I buy lots of books.
The cookies on my computer let amazon know when I''m back.
You'd think that would be a good thing since they may want to give regulars a price break...

WRONG!

I priced a book I want.
I flipped over to 'private browsing' and guess what?
They offered 'the stranger' a better price.



Google has peeved me off lately, too. It knows so much about me that I can't find out fact about certain services available in other parts of the world to compare with Canada. Why? Because they fill my searches with local crap. If I wanted local, I'd pick up the damn phone!

Hey google and amazon, get stuffed!

Ah, I feel better now thanks.

Still Saturday here but now I feel much better, thank you. Found the book downtown at a used book store

I'm feeling lucky so I'm going to a charity casino tonight. I have a $20 to 'give away' and I need an excuse to get all dolled up.

So how does that work? I'm comfortable donating a 20 spot but what if I win something, is that like stealing from a charity?


Odds are that I'll be $20 lighter tomorrow :-)
