Targeted advertising

This is what my life has come to:

This morning I received an email from Amazon that began, "As someone who has shown an interest in napkins, you might like to see our top picks." Not hot new DVD releases, not great summer reads, not sexy footwear. NAPKINS.

God help me, I actually scrolled through the list to see what they were offering. Meh.

Oh dear.

Well, if it makes you feel any better the only suggestions I get are related to the gifts I've bought online and therefore of very little interest to me. No, I don't care about the latest Wii or Playstation 3 release or the Hello Kitty boombox. Amazon seems to think I'm an 8 year old girl.

Our best ideas at JPL come from scratches on the back of napkins...hold your head high!
