Firefly: Gold Deal Box of the Day

I didn't start watching Firefly until it was cancelled, but I rented the show, became a huge fan, and promptly bought them from Amazon.

While a lot of the Amazon Gold Box Deals are kind of lame, today's deal is the complete series of Firefly on sale for only $19.99!

I know these deals sale out, so if you were planning on ever adding this to your movie collection, now's the time!

Two Winners in The Box

I forgot to mention, but this week, I got two great Amazon.com Gold Box Offers that I could refuse.

The first was for The Hunt for Red October (Special Edition) on DVD. It's been on my mind ever since Steven and I watch a submarine program on The Science Channel earlier this week, so I snapped it up and added Field of Dreams so I could qualify for free shipping. Can't wait for them to come in.

The second item was even better and one I can't believe they even put on sale - The Animatrix Gift Set (includes the CD soundtrack). We've watched some of these on the web and they are just incredible. It's going to make a perfect surprise gift for Steven since I told them they weren't coming out on DVD at all. If you're a fan of animation or The Matrix, I highly recommend them. I paired it with This Pen for Hire: A Jaine Austen Mystery by Laura Levine since it comes out in paperback at about the same time.

Some great stuff coming my way soon from Amazon!

Winos Wanted

Kind of funny, but three of the items in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers were wine-related. Shame I don't drink the stuff!

.: Calphalon Commercial Hard Anodized 3-1/2-Quart Windsor Saucepan with Lid: I'm pretty sure I've checked with Steven on saucepans before and he never expressed any interest in getting one. Good price, though.

DVD in The Gold Box

I was checking out my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today when I was presented with a DVD that I feel is essential to any collection - Trading Places.

How can you not love this movie? It was about $15 so I jumped at the chance to add it to my DVD collection.

Two in a Row

What can I say? I'm weak, so I made an order for the second day in a row from my Amazon.com Gold Box.

I was offered Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Complete Second Season on DVD for about $10.00 off. This is another one of those shows that I knew I would love, but never got around to watching. I guess I'll get to finally see it now. :-)

I have never seen Buffy, but everything I've heard about it indicates that I would love it. Now I have an hour to decide: should I or shouldn't I buy it? Hmmm.

Right Out of The Box

I ordered the first item out of my Amazon.com Gold Box today.

I was offered Twin Peaks - The First Season (Special Edition) DVDs for $5.00 off. While I never got to watch the show, knowing what the types of things that I like, I have always thought that Twin Peaks would be right up my alley. A few gift certificates later and the first season is mine for a mere $5.00 and change. Now, does anyone have the pilot they can loan me?

Pasta, Anyone?

The first product in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today was a Villaware Imperia Pasta Machine. Steven and I have watched a lot of Iron Chef together and he's always impressed when the chefs make their own pasta, so as soon as I saw this, I called him up at his poker game and asked him how interested he might be in making his own. When he found out that it was super cheap thanks to The Gold Box, he said it would make a great gift so I bought it for him and Jemima J: A Novel About Ugly Ducklings and Swans for me (hey, I to get free shipping I had to make another purchase. It was completely self-less!). Cool little gadget, huh?

For some reason, my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers stopped working, so today's list is a short one.

.: SONICblue Rio 600 64 MB Digital Audio Player (MP3/WMA): I've been thinking that the mp3 player I won online (the RCA RD1000 Kazoo Digital Audio Player) isn't really going to work for what I need, so I'm half toying with the idea of buying one. This one looks nice, but the reviews were mixed.

.: Le Creuset 2-5/8-Quart Soup Pot, Blue: I don't think Steven really needs a soup pot, but the color on this was really beautiful.

.: Tanita 2201 Super Ultimate Body Fat Monitor and Scale: I've been thinking, since I've wanted to be more serious about losing some weight, that I should get a scale. I've always been kind of sceptical about how accurate a body fat reading on one of these is. It also stores personal data for two users and that is a great feature.

.: Vornado 610W Whole Room Air Circulator, Whitestone: we've got a ceiling fan in each room and my office is always freezing, so I don't need one of these.

Friday's Gold Box

Despite my good luck on getting a DVD player that I purchased in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers earlier this week, nothing else has appeared worth buying.

.: Toastmaster 6431 Eclipse Single Burner: nice if you had a buffet line to feed or cooked things at your office, but I don't.

Computer Box

Several computer items in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers giving me hope that maybe some day I will make another purchase there. :-)

.: Vornado EH1-0015-04 IntelliTemp Heater, Greystone: looks like a very nice product, but with us having a small condo, heating and cooling isn't a huge issue.

Passing on the Second Box

I guess Amazon was hoping I'd make more purchases with a second set of Amazon.com Gold Box Offers but there wasn't anything in this one worth getting.

.: Lentek PC02G PestContro Deluxe: once again, the facts that I'm never outside and I don't have a yard, pretty much make this an automatic pass.

Victory in The Box!

Today, I bought the first thing offered in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: Apex AD-800 Progressive Scan DVD Player: Steven and I have a DVD player that I bought for him for Christmas in 1999. It's been very temperamental the last eight months or so and will only play a DVD when it feels like it. Basically you have to sit in front of it, insert the disc, wait for it to say no disc found, eject the disc, blow on it, put it in again, curse when it can't find it and repeat the steps ad naseum. We'd been talking about getting another one so when I got one in my offers for $89.99 that seemed to have a lot of good features, I jumped at getting it. Couple that with the fact that I had just gotten a $50 gift certificate from wKen and it just seemed like fate.

Here's to hoping I get more offers worth taking advantage of!

Holiday (Gold) Box

A few interesting items in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers but nothing of real note.

.: Microtek ScanMaker 4800 Scanner: I could use a new scanner since the one I have is like four years old. I really don't scan a lot of stuff, though, so I can wait on getting one.

Possibilities in The Box

.: Brother MFC-9700 Flatbed Laser Multifunction: I really can't afford to spend almost $500 on something like this especially since I don't really need it. It's cool, though.

Wednesday in The (Gold) Box

Another day of passing on my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers, but at least a few of them were interesting.

.: Lentek PR20C PestContro Ultrasonics 2000: I honestly wouldn't mind having one of these. We get sugar ants in the house and it bugs me. (Bugs me. Get it? I kill myself.)

.: Calphalon Commercial Hard Anodized 12-Quart Stockpot with Lid: I wonder if Steven could use one of these. He doesn't make stock, but that doesn't mean he might not want to in the future.

.: Hewlett Packard 10BII Financial Calculator: I've still got my old TI-81 that I bought for calculus in high school. I'm a geek, but I love that calculator.

.: Black & Decker FP1400 Quick N' Easy Plus Food Processor: Steven has never shown any interest in these. Pass.

.: Bosch 1587AVSP Progressor Top-Handle Jig Saw Kit: man, I thought I was going to luck out and not get any tools. So close.

.: Animal Planet Radio Control Wooly Mammoth: very bizarre. They offered me this already. I passed then, and I pass now.

.: SanDisk 128 MB Cruzer Data Storage Device: I just don't need one of these. No thanks.

.: Farberware Nonstick 4-Cup Egg Poacher: I don't think Steven eats poached eggs and I certainly don't.

A Cool Thing in The Gold Box

Well, at least one of my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers was for something really cool.

.: Philips FW-i1000 Internet Audio Compact Stereo System: amazing! Something cool in my Gold Box! Not really in the market for one, so I'll have to pass, though.

.: Jet 709055 Super Fast Jointing Clamp (Pair): this thing looks like a torture device of some sort or some strange body piercing thing.

.: Tender Vibes Soothing Mattress - [Baby Product]: once again, no more baby products, please!

.: Harley-Davidson Barbie #4: this is just weird. A $60 biker Barbie. Very strange indeed. If you look at the close-up they have of her, she looks drugged. Very scary eye make-up too.

.: Porter-Cable 97366 6" Variable Speed Sander Kit with Dust Collection Hood: another tool (of course). Pass.

Variable Gold Box

Lots of variation in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today, but nothing that I had to have.

.: Bathing and Grooming Kit: I don't have a kid, so there is no reason for me to buy a baby bathing and grooming kit. When will they catch on to the fact that I don't have any kids?

.: L.R. Nelson 1855 Mini Rain Traveling Sprinkler: I don't have a lawn, so no need for a lawn sprinkler.

.: Apex AD-800 Progressive Scan DVD Player: Steven and I have a DVD player, but it's been acting very temperamental for the last several months. I wouldn't mind getting another one, but the reviews on this one weren't so good. I'm going to have to pass.

.: Polder Cooking Thermometer with Timer & Clock: I think Steven could use of one these, but the reviews were mixed making me not want to spend my money on this one.

.: Omni Swings n' Things 510 Rope Hammock Chair, Natural: I would like to have a hammock, but until we get a house and I have some place to put it, I'm going to have to continue passing on these.

.: Zojirushi BBCC-V20 Home Bakery Traditional Breadmaker: I've always kind of thought that it would be cool to have a breadmaker. I've heard that they're easy to use, even for people with no cooking skills like me. Maybe some day I'll get one.

.: Panasonic SL-SW895 Shockwave Portable CD Player: is it just me or does this thing look like that old electronic game Simon?

.: Little People Press 'n Go Remote Control Vehicle: still don't need any toys, especially one that got ratings as crappy as this one.

I got two Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today, but didn't find anything to buy in this one either.

.: Oneida Bancroft 20-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set, Service for 4: nice enough pattern, but not particulary impressed by it.

.: Storm 2000 Monsoon Force 4: now that we have Bella, our new cat, I've had people tell me that getting a squirt gun is a good way to discourage your cat doing something you don't want her to do. This seems like it might be overkill, though.

.: Vornado 610W Whole Room Air Circulator, Whitestone: have no need for one of these.

.: Fein 9-11-20 Wet/Dry 6-Gallon Vacuum: still not in the market for a vacuum.

.: Fiestaware Cobalt 831 4-Piece Place Setting: more cool Fiestaware, but I like the Cinnabar color better.

.: Leatherman 70202003 Juice S2: another tool that I'm going to pass on.

.: Astonica 50120003 Cast Swivel Bar Stool: this is kind of pretty, but I don't know if I would spend $90 for a bar stool. Plus, it doesn't go with out decor.

.: Olympus Stylus Epic QD CG Date 35mm Camera: I wouldn't mind having a regular camera, but I'm not sure if this is the one I would choose.

.: Euro-Pro Shark EP76 Compact Bagless Canister Vacuum: still not in the market for a vacuum.

.: Fiestaware Cinnabar 831 4-Piece Place Setting: I've always liked Fiestaware and this is a cool color. If I was in the market for new plates (just bought some not too long ago), I would seriously consider these.

.: Ryobi GS12V - 12-Volt Cordless Grass Shears: again, I don't have a yard so therefore I don't have any grass.

.: Simplicity SA200 Pioneer II 18 Stitch Function Sewing Machine: I have no domestic skills to speak of, so I'm going to pass on this.

.: Thermos 4656110 Grill-2-Go Gas Grill Manufactured by Char-Broil: we already have a grill, so I think it would be overkill to get this too.

.: Philips "Sweet Dreams" Cradle Player: as I've mentioned a million times, I have no need for kid stuff.

.: Porter-Cable 352VS 3" x 21" Belt Sander with Dust Bag: how many times do I have to pass on tools before they stop offering them to me?

.: Omni Swings n' Things 536 Yucatan Mayan Hammock, Festive Multicolor Stripe: same as the power tool thing above - I've passed on a million of these products. Stop offering them, already!

.: Logitech 961189-0403 ClickSmart 310 (USB): since I just bought a $400 digital camera from them, you wouldn't think they'd offer me a little crappy $50 one.

.: Memorex Travelview 43055 Mobile VCR with 9" Color Screen: I drive a Miata. Somehow I don't think this would fit in my car.

The Box Returns

I was beginning to think that I wasn't going to get anymore Amazon.com Gold Box Offers after not getting one all weekend.

.: Oxford Garden Designs Chadwick Collection Armchair: another chair. It's nice enough, but I am not going to buy a chair for $100 site-unseen from them.

.: Flowtron MT-150 Mosquito PowerTrap: mosquitos are definitely a problem around here, but there is no way in hell that I am paying almost $225 for a mosquito killer.

.: Lakeland Mills CF1125 Cedar Log Rocking Chair: I think that this is an ugly chair. Far too rustic for my tastes.

.: MAC Sports MOCP-K-S Moon Chair, Khaki: this is kind of a cool chair, though I don't like the color. We had a chair real similar to this in our office and it was so comfortable.

.: Omni 616 Reclineaire PTX Hammock Chair, Navy Blue: I think these things are so cool, but there is no where to hang it in my condo. Plus, it's freaking hot outside. I'm not going outside for an extended length of time for anything.

Box Full of Disappointment

Nothing good in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers. Just expensive tables and cushions for hammocks I don't own.

.: American Woods 1685 Cedar Adirondack Chair with Ottoman Gift Set: another chair. Looks like I am going from cools and cooking utensils to patio stuff. Of course, none of it is very useful to me.

.: Gardenside 1606 Teak Rosevale 48 Round Dining Table: OMG! I just got offered a $500+ table! Who would buy a $500 table from Amazon site unseen?

.: Omni/Swings 'N Things 588 Blue Olefin Hammock Chair Cushion: well, since I don't have a hammock, this is a very good offer for me. Pass.

.: Lentek YC12G YardContro: this is supposed to repel dogs, cats, deer, wild animals out of yards and gardens. Of course, I don't have a yard or garden....

.: Omni/Swings 'N Things 589 Green Olefin Hammock Chair Cushion: this is the same cushin they just offered me. I don't want it in blue or green, thank you very much.

Patio Box

So much for getting any more cool toys in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers. Today there were all patio items, things that, since I have no yard, aren't very useful to me.

.: Gardenside 3516 Teak Summerhill Armchair: nice looking chair, but there is no way I am paying over $300 for it.

.: Oxford Garden Designs Market Umbrella Base: as I've mentioned, I don't have a yard, so this is so useless.

.: Omni-Swings 'N Things 550 Taino Rainbow Hammock: I've always wanted a hammock, but once again, no yard, so kind of difficult to use this.

.: Gardenside 3540 Teak Sausalito Dining Armchair: another nice looking chair, but it's over $200 and I don't really have any where to put this. Pass.

.: Astonica 40101101 Patio Heater, Stainless Steel: once again, no yard, so totally useless.

Toy Box

For once, my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers were for things other than cooking utensil or a power tool. I wasn't very interested in the games that it contained today, but maybe we're getting closer to it containing items I'd actually be interested in.

.: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Board Game: I like the show, but would rather play Trivial Pursuit instead.

.: Electronic Spider Stompin' Game: I love board games usually, but this one looks like it's a little young for me unless I just want to stomp some spiders.

.: Harry Potter Talking Portraits Room Alarm: I don't have any kids and even though I love Harry Potter, going to pass on this.

.: Antique Roadshow Board Game: I've never really watched the show, though it seems kind of interesting and fun, but I don't think I'd really enjoy the board game. Give me a game of Trivial Pursuit any day.

.: Marvin's Magic Game: another game that's just a little too young for me.

Repeats in The Box

Seems like Amazon just loves offering me the same items over and over again for my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: Panasonic ES8003W Men's Wet/Dry Rechargeable Linear Shaver with 3D: good Lord! Stop offering me shavers! I've passed on like ten of these already!

.: Dirt Devil 091210RC Platinum Force Bagless Upright - Plus Cordless Hand Vac: not in the market for a vacuum.

.: Zelco "itty bitty" Booklight, Volume 2: this is something that I would be interested in. I read a lot after Steven's already in bed and have to leave the bedside lamps on. Not sure if I really want to spend $15, though, since he can sleep with the light on.

.: Sabatier Prosteel 7-Piece High Carbon Stainless Steel Knife Set with Block: man! No more knives already.

.: Dirt Devil CE7000 Easy Steamer Carpet Extractor: like I just said, we don't need a vacuum.

Getting Closer

More cooking offers in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers, but at least two of them made me think about making a purchase.

.: Zojirushi NS-JCC10 Neuro Fuzzy 5-Cup Rice Cooker: another one of these. I still don't need a rice cooker, so I'm still going to pass.

.: Sabatier Profile Stainless Steel 14-Piece Knife Set with Block: nice looking knife set, but we don't need it. Interesting side note, I got a "we're out of this, but order now and you'll get it as soon as it's in stock" as opposed to one of their messages saying they'd just run out.

.: Hamilton Beach 80200 Flat Bread MealMaker Bread Press and Skillet: this looks way cool. You can make flatbreads on it like pitas and tortillas. I doubt we'd use it, but a great offer nonetheless!

.: Black & Decker CBM7B SmartGrind Deluxe Coffee Bean Burr Mill - Black: I don't drink coffee and I won a $160 coffee maker a couple of months ago anyway.

.: WMF Manhattan Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker with Built-In Strainer: this is even cooler looking than the martini shaker I was offered the other day. Finally, an item I might consider buying.

Simmering in The Box

Once again, nothing in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers worth getting.

.: Hamilton Beach 72600 Fresh Chop 3-Cup Food Chopper: not interested. We don't need one of these.

.: West Bend 79586 6-Quart Capacity Electric Wok: as I've said before, we don't need a wok.

.: Calphalon Professional Hard Anodized Collector's Edition 3 1/2-Quart Saucepot with Lid: when I started my job at 4 Guys, I bought Steven a fifteen piece set of Wolfgang Puck cookware to thank him for being so supportive while I was laid off. He's got saucepots.

.: Farberware Classic 8-Piece Cookware Set: like I just said, he's got cookware.

.: Spiegelau by WMF 6-Ounce Martini Glasses, Set of 6: these are nice looking, but aren't really anything special. Not worth the price.

Tooling Along

Five more tool offers to add to my list of Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: PowerQwest LT10 24 Volt Cordless Electric String Timmer: I don't have a yard, so any kind of gardening tools are just not going to get bought.

.: Senco DS200-14V DuraSpin Remodeler's Screw Gun, Includes a Free SS14V Cut Out Saw: this actually might come in handy to have around the house, but my parents have one, so we'll just borrow theirs and save the $180.

.: Milwaukee 6390-21 7-1/4" Circular Saw with Tilt-Lok Handle and Case: this has got to be the tenth saw they've offered me. No thank you already!

.: Record 52-1/2ED Quick Release Woodworker's Vise (with "Dog"), 9" Jaw Width: another tool. Please, please no more tools or cooking items.

.: Allied 69062 196 Piece Tool Set in Metal Tool Box: I guess I could get all my tools in one fell swoop with this thing.

Cooking, Cooking, Cooking

More cooking offers in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers. Why can't I get some books or movies?

.: Sabatier Cannes Bordeaux 20-Piece Flatware Placesetting: for the thousandth time, I don't want any flatware!

.: Vacu Vin Concerto Wine Saver Extra Stoppers, Set of 4: if we don't drink wine, so no thank you.

.: Farberware Nonstick 4-Cup Egg Poacher: fairly certain that Steven doesn't eat poached eggs and I know I don't.

.: Oneida Cocktail Shaker: finally! A cooking product that we would use! Steven drinks martinis (I don't), but he's already got a shaker. It's pretty cool looking, but I'm going to pass.

.: Polder Electronic Clock/Stopwatch/Timer: I think Steven could actually use one of these, but I'll pass on it anyway.

Cooking Away

I would love to get something besides five more cooking offers in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers. Anyone taken advantage of theirs yet?

.: Zojirushi Tuff Road 16-Ounce Commuter Mug, Metallic Green: kind of nice looking (for a commuter mug), but I don't drink coffee and if I have a coke, it's already in a can. Not very useful for me.

.: Roshco 100-Piece Plastic Cookie Cutter Set: if we get cookies, they are usually store-bought or from a cookie store. We never make them.

.: Black & Decker HS2000 Flavor Scenter Steamer Plus Steamer and Food/Rice Cooker: kind of neat, but I'm not sure if Steven would ever use it. Somehow I doubt he would.

.: Farberware Classic Series 2-Quart Saucepan with Double Boiler Insert and Lid: very cool, but I don't think it would get a lot of use at our house.

.: Sabatier Prosteel 4-Piece Steak Knife Set: hadn't seen any knives for a while in the box. Wish they would go away since we already have a nice knife set.

(Golden) Tool Box

Tools abound in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today.

.: Milwaukee 6266-21 Fast Cutting Top Handle Orbital Jig Saw with Case: what in the hell would I do with this? Thanks, but no thanks.

.: Bosch DWM40L Miter Finder Digital Protractor/Angle Finder: I couldn't manage the protractor that we had to use in school very well, so I'm going to upgrade to the $100 version? Pass!

.: MK MK-370K 7" 1/2 HP Tile Saw Includes Stand: another tool. Stop already with the tools!

.: Prazi USA P7020 Beam Cutter Chain (New Style): I guess since this is "new style" I should just want to snap it up. But I don't.

.: Milwaukee 5371-6 1/2" Magnum Heavy Duty Hammer Drill Kit: we have a drill (I think) already, so no need for a new one.

Cooking Implements Galore

More cooking implements and another shaver in my Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today.

.: Kaiser Bakeware Noblesse Nonstick Mini Springform Pans, Set of 4: these looks like they are used for making things like tarts and stuff that we don't generally cook.

.: Microplane Interchangeable Grater System: kind of nice looking, but I'm not in the market for fancy graters. Pass.

.: Norelco T600 Acu-Control Cordless Rechargeable Beard & Moustache Trimmer: another shaver. Quit giving me these! I don't want it!

.: Precidio Tropical Plaid Melamine Bowls, Set of 4, Willow Green: ugly plates. I wonder why they think I need green plates all of a sudden.

.: George Foreman 3-Piece Outdoor BBQ Tool Set: I'm pretty sure that Steven has all of these tools already. I'll pass and close The Gold Box.

Disappointment In The Box

Another Amazon.com Gold Box, five more items I'm passing on.

.: Bounty Hunter Tracker IV Metal Detector: what in the world would I do with a metal detector? Do people really use these?

.: West Bend 41077 Just For Dinner Breadmaker: not too bad, but I asked Steven and he said he'd never use a breadmaker and since I don't cook, that's out.

.: Toastmaster 6431 Eclipse Single Burner: well, I don't cook, so I'll pass on this.

.: Sabatier Hunter Green Cannes 16 Piece Dinnerware Set: OMG! This is the ugliest color plates I have ever seen in my life! Run away!

.: Hamilton Beach 727W Classic DrinkMaster Drink Mixer, White: just got one of those "we ran out" notices on this one. Kind of cool, but our blender makes my raspberry piña coladas just fine.

Cooking In The Box

More cooking items in today's Amazon.com Gold Box Offers. All I can guess is that their cooking department isn't selling all that much stuff so they're trying to get rid of it through this offers.

.: Sassafras Wood Pizza/Bread Peel: if we didn't already have one of these, I might be tempted to get this. Steven makes homemade pizzas and this is an essential piece of hardware to get the pizza to come out right.

.: Polder Triple Kitchen Timer/Clock: when I won my Belgian waffle maker back in April, it came with a kitchen timer which Steven has used yet, so don't need this item.

.: Libbey Flare 16-Piece Beverage Glass Set, Cobalt Blue: nice looking glasses, but just don't need them.

.: West Bend 79586 6-Quart Capacity Electric Wok: I asked Steven and he said he'd never use a wok, so passing on this.

.: Hamilton Beach 22559 Classic Chrome Extra-Wide Slot Toaster: nice looking toaster, but we've already got one.

Holiday Offers

So much for any good holiday offers in Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: Polder 11-Pound Stainless Steel Scale: what is up with all the cooking utensils? I'm not in the market for anything right now.

.: Farberware 12x18-Inch Poly Cutting Board with Microban: more cooking stuff. We already have something like this.

.: Oneida Flight 20-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set, Service for 4: we've got enough silverware, thank you.

.: Old Dutch Copper Beating Bowls and Whisk, Set of 3: these look cool and are a pretty good price at $22.49, but I don't think Steven needs beating bowls.

.: LitterMaid LMR200 Waste Receptacles: these are supposed to be used with cat liter boxes. I don't have a cat, so not a good offer.

More Strikeouts

More strikeouts in today's Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: JET DC-1100 / 708626GK 1100 CFM Dust Collector includes 4" x 10" Hose, Dust Hood, and Clamps: why do they keep offering me things like this? I don't have allergies and am not in need of a vacuum for anything.

.: Bostitch N62FNK-2 15-Gauge Angled Finish Nailer Kit: more tools! Stop offering them to me!

.: Bucket Boss Brand 25005 Super Chutes: something to hold the tools I don't need. How useful.

.: Zircon 64003 Water Detector Electronic Water Alarm: apparently this beeps loudly whenever water hits it so you can know you have a leak. Whatever. Not something I need.

.: Bucket Boss Brand 99981 Mug Boss: something that is actually interesting, though I doubt I'd buy it. It's a little organizer that fits in a coffee cup so you can keep the clutter on your desk in order. Kind of cool, but nothing I would rush out and get since they only knocked $0.50 off the regular price.

Second Miss of the Day

Looks like two Amazon.com Gold Box Offers for me today! Of course, nothing worth buying in this one either.

.: Bosch 4000K 10" Worksite Table Saw includes TS1000 Folding Steel Stand and Outfeed Extension: I so don't need one of these. Steven wouldn't use it and I am so clumsy I'd kill myself with it.

.: Allied 59096 131-Piece Automotive Tool Set: why the hell would I want this? I have no tools in my wishlist.

.: Gerber 08239 Legend Multi-Plier 800 Multitool: stop with the freaking tools already!

.: Makita BO4552KX 1/4 Sheet Sander with Case and 15 Sheets of Sandpaper: I have no wood in my house, therefore I have no use for a sander.

.: Shop-Vac 301-01-00 5-Gallon 1.5 HP Wet/Dry Vacuum: at least this is a tool that I could use, but I am not looking for a vacuum cleaner.

Missed Again

.: Norelco 6885XL Deluxe Quadra Action Cord/Cordless Rechargeable Men's Shaver: another freaking shaver. I don't need one of these. Quit offering them to me.

.: Riedel Vinum Chablis/Chardonnay Wine Glasses, Set of 6: Steven and I don't drink wine, so not too useful.

.: Wsthof Grand Prix 7-Piece Knife Set with Block: man! Stop offering me knives already!

.: Microplane Grater/Zester: second zester they've offered me. I might buy this since Steven cooks, but I don't think he needs one.

Nothing Good in The Gold Box

Time to delve into today's Amazon.com Gold Box Offers. Once again, all misses.

.: Zojirushi NS-PC10 Electric 5-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer: well, we don't make a lot of rice in our house, so not something that we would really need. Isn't this more for sushi? Not something we make at home.

.: Sabatier Laguiole 4-Piece Stainless Steel Steak Knife Set: what is up with all of the food stuff? I haven't bought any of Steven's kitchen gifts from Amazon and don't have any on my wishlist.

.: Got another, "I'm sorry, but we've just run out of this item. Our Gold Box deals are so good, we sometimes can't keep up!" I just have to say it sucks that they waste one of your offers on this.

.: Damn! Got another one of the "we're out" messages. That's two less offers for me today.

.: Wsthof Grand Prix 2-Piece Knife Starter Set: another knife. Going to pass on these too.

More Gold Box Misses

Earlier today as I purchased my new Sony DSC-P71 Cyber-Shot 3MP Digital Camera, I was treated to these Amazon.com Gold Box Offers.

.: Time [MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION]: not really interested, but this is closer to hitting the mark than most of my Gold Box offers have been!

.: Hamilton Beach 49291 Aroma Express 12-Cup Coffeemaker, White: I don't drink coffee and Steven just won a $160 Capresso MT500 coffee maker. Definitely don't need this.

.: Strange, but I got a "We just ran out of this item" message. Way to waste one of my offers.

.: Panasonic ES8003W Men's Wet/Dry Rechargeable Linear Shaver with 3D: I guess Steven might like this, but why do they offer me, a female who's never bought any men's products from Amazon, a shaver?

.: Opus 25153 Expeditions Copper Hummingbird Feeder: I guess I could hang this on the porch, but since I live in a condo and have no plants accessible to hummingbirds, not very useful!

More Gold Box Misses

More misses in the Amazon.com Gold Box Offers today. I don't have a yard since I live in a condo, so birdbaths aren't really very useful to me. I wonder why I got a filter and an ultrasonic pest repellent today. Seems odd things just to offer people. The stainless steel double wheel pizza cutter is kind of cool (Steven makes homemade pizza, so we could use this), but $16 sounds a little high for a pizza cutter. Oh well. I'll just pass on them all. When am I going to get something cool like a book, video game, or foot spa like Christine got?

.: Sabatier Precision Kitchen Shears

.: Lentek PR10C Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

.: Opus 25130 Expeditions Copper Lilypad Birdbath

.: Hamilton Beach 04255 TrueAir Plug-Mount Odor Eliminator with Two Bonus Filters

Another Gold Box List

Today's Amazon.com Gold Box Offers continued the summer theme with more grills, a windchime, and some chairs. The first chair that was sold out, so I thought it was kind of a rip-off to give me an offer I can't even buy.

.: MAC Sports Medium Moon Chair, Blue

Gold Box Misses

Since Christine's been sharing how strange her Amazon.com Gold Box Offers have been, I thought I'd share mine today.

.: Real Bird Hunting Electronic Handheld Game

.: Electronic Floor Drum Set

.: Bob Scoops Construction Game

.: Nutty Elephant Board Game

.: Combi Plus Kettrike Combi with Seatbelt and Pushbar

I have no kids, so I can only conclude that since I bought some video games through there, they think toys are something I'm interested in. Shame they were good buys on some of the stuff in my wishlist!
