so many decisions when trying to spend my amazon gift card

2015-06-03 - 6:47 p.m.

The credit card company that said they'd give me $100 on Amazon for getting their credit card coughed up the gift card a few days ago. So far I've bought a couple of books and Laurie Anderson's Big Science. I went there intending to buy this whackadoo lovebird-proof Jolly Ball swinging nestbox I saw on YouTube, but I found out there are a great many products called Jolly Ball -- and none of them looked like the Jolly Ball lovebird roostbox in question. Then I went back and realized the YouTube in question was video'd three years ago. Arghhhh. I guess the market for lovebirds who went mad and chewed their Happy Hut all to hell is not as large as one might have believed.

I guess I'll have to buy the vet wrap to enhance her playpen on Amazon. The vet wrap at the Covington Petsmart is printed all over with little doggy paw prints. I just want a solid color like all the other lovebirds have on their playpen? As for the Mandeville Petsmart, it had one employee and virtually no customers. The one employee had no clue. I asked her where the vet wrap was. She said that prescription items had to be purchased at the vet's office. I said it was not a prescription item. Hello? It's tape? Vet wrap is just a name because it's safe for animals to chew? She repeated very sternly that prescription items were not sold at Petsmart. No wonder there's nobody in there. Unhelpful, doesn't know what the products are, and a witch with a b. But I really do hate to order a $5 item and pay shipping on top just because the Covington CBA to have a simple red or yellow or green bit of tape! Someone said they wrap horse's knees with it. Maybe they have it at the feed store. But I don't know if driving to the feed store is any cheaper than paying shipping, the price of gas being what it is.
