I have put together what is probably my most eclectic Amazon order ever.

One pack of eneloop batteries with charger (thank you avani and steuard!) two sets of headphones, one in-line headphone volume control dongle, a USB SD card reader, and a box of chewy Gobstoppers.

I also wanted to get a jar of reese's peanut butter because i was curious after seeing it in a store, but since deciding i actually want to try it i haven't seen it again. Amazon _does_ have it, but only in six jar packs, which is a bit more than i'm willing to invest in on a whim :)

I'm trying to think up something more to get that would make it even more bizarre, but i can't think of anything else that i actually need =P

Naw, that's all geek-stuff and food. Geeks eat candy too! And we're more likely to buy it on-line.

Let's see, my most recent order was:
1. Nintendo 3DS - Aqua Blue
2. Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches 5x7
3. Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World
4. Programming Pearls (2nd Edition)
5. The C++ STL: A tutorial and reference
6. Programming INterviews Exposed: Secrets to landing your next job, 2nd edition
7. Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever and New Friends

Which is not so interesting, mostly geeky and office supplies. Combine it with the previous one a few days earlier:
8. Aveeno Active Naturals Skin RElief Moisturizing Cream
9. Retro Dresswear Boys Suit Pants with Belt, white, size 6
10. B&M Original Baked Beans, 16 oz cans, pack of 12

and we're starting to get eclectic. Next add:

11. Clinical Management of Binocular Vision
12. Perplexus Rookie
13. 101 Dalmations

And you have a summoning engine that has no idea what to recommend next. I wish Amazon could acquire Linked In's AI. Linked-In has consistently excellent, to the point of being spooky, recommendations for people I know. Amazon seems stuck in the rut of "you ordered one medical textbook, maybe you'd like other medical textbooks we sell."

PS. If anyone wants to be in my linked-in network, just let me know, although I usually don't go around adding people to the network, I usually do respond to requests as long as I know you.
