Human Have Fucked With The Amazon

Now Amazon fucks with humans.

Every time I contact them about their foul-up. I have to tell the same story over and over again. I decide to take up their offer of telling them that they hadn't dealt with my problem properly - for example, they still don't know how my friend got to be the invoicee, and they still seem to think the gift will arrive (it was only sent on December 8th after all) - and I ask for a call back. This time it is someone in the US who calls, and she has a quiet voice and difficult accent. I tell her this - and next thing I know, the bitch has hung up.

Amazon will have to pull a very big rabbit out of the hat to get me back as a customer.

Up Close and Kissable

How could she resist when he was so close? I'd have jumped his bones there and then, in front of everyone.

Caveat Emptor

Buyer Beware.

Of Amazon.

In December I ordered a treat for a US friend. It was going to take a while to arrive, and I forgot about it.

On Monday I ordered Season 3 for a UK friend who couldn't find it below full price in the stores. When it arrived, a paper inside said it had been invoiced to the friend in the US. This made no sense to me. How can Amazon charge a third party for something I ordered? There isn't even a way to request it, I checked.

Reviewing the post-puchase messages from Amazon, I saw what I had not noticed before (why would I have been looking for it?) that the invoice address for the first item was that of the supposed US recipient, and it has stayed in place for the latest order. How can one even change it if there is no way to request it in the first place?

The US order looks as if it may also have been charged to the US friend, as well as to me on my credit card. The latest order has so far been charged nowhere, as far as I can see - but maybe the US friend has been gouged for it.

How is any of this this possible?


Label Him Sexy

That wouldn't be a mis-label at all.

That's Us

All of us Vixens. Unrequited.

Yes, the index finger is longer than the ring finger. Just.

Couldn't post this one without Bobby's dance:

Hopping Mad

They made my poor baby film this with a cold!

But we did get to see a lot of those delicious digits.

The Nose Thief

On Mondays I take my student to the school where I used to teach, where he joins Year 11 (age 15-16) for their art lesson. It's a special school, designated for "delicate" children - the kinds of kids who would find it hard to cope at a mainstream school, and would be likely to be bullied: many of them are autistic; others have learning delays.

As Year 8 (age 12-13), these youngsters were my class. I taught them English, Maths and Social Ed, and half of them I taught Science. They were lovely kids. A year earlier they had taken part in an animation workshop, and today Joe reminded me that it is on YouTube.

So, for the first time on Life and Vincent, here is their film, The Nose Thief.


Fucking Perfect Specimen.

And how stupid am I to post S3 from the old album, when I have these sparkling new ones to share?


No need to strain to look up my skirt, sweetie.

No need for me to strain to examine your goods, either!

It's about yearning.

Yes, darling, we know.

We yearn for you, too.

Gawd, how gorgeous.

Now, that's what I need!
