Dear Amazon,

We've had a long, happy relationship. I remember those times, back when we first met in 1998, that you'd send me $20 coupons just because you felt like it. I've stayed loyal to you for years since then, straying only to visit your brick and mortar grandparents on occasion. These days, however, you seem to be coming on a little strong. I'm not going anywhere. There is no need for you to offer me things I like for ridiculously low prices and then ship them to me weeks before you told me you would.

I had planned a weekend in two weeks with no work so that I could install and play Portal. You promised you couldn't get it to me before the 18th, and I trusted you. Imagine my pleasure, followed by a deep-seated dread, when I opened a package containing Portal, shrink-wrapped and calling to me weeks before I expected it. (I should note, here, that you have yet to deliver a textbook to me with the same alacrity. Sometimes I wonder if you are indeed in on the plan to make me leave grad school.). While I do appreciate the sincerity of your efforts, I really would like to graduate some time before I'm 30. So I beg you, dear Amazon, please don't try to further gain my affections. They are yours. Let me do my research in peace.

Sincerely,
-- Avani

Did I mention the sheer awesome?

Also, it's very segmented. I'm SURE you could just try the first segment and stop, You know, just to get the overall idea... ;->

I don't know WHAT you are talking about.

By the way, I DID mention the awesome right? Anyway, it takes a while to install. I'm sure you could at least start it installing... ;->

The more time you spend complaining about the icons, the less time you get with the tasty tasty Portal ;->

That is a much more appropriate icon. Are you coming to alumni weekend? ;-)

Don't think so. I think we just got a work 'reward' trip that conflicts with that and I wasn't really planning on going anyway. I'll be down for AX of course... not really sure what my plans are in between (Was kinda preoccupied with that whole v8 thing... didn't look much beyond that)

Well, I guess I can wait until AX. If Peter actually succeeds in talking me into it, I will kick your ass dressed like this:

hee, hee. You are a lot braver than I am: I don't even dare consider Portal until this house passes inspection, and the other one is rented, so no Portal for me probably ever. But I am green with envy!

"Sometimes I wonder if you are indeed in on the plan to make me leave grad school."

On a totally unrelated note, would you like a referral for a job?
