Wow, you people are the best. I take back all the nasty things I said. Since my pathetic little whining about Amazon trusted friends went up the day before yesterday, I've had all kind of people add me to their lists. Just to list the ones whose sites I know, Kristin, Thomas, Christina, Matt and Mena all added me as a trusted friend.
The unfortunate part is that my Amazon browsing doesn't reflect my tastes very well, as it's a really small sampling and tends towards the obvious things that I remember I want. But the lesson I've taken home from all of this? I should resort to pathetic self-pitying more often.
