    I'm pretty sure this is a dumb question, but I've spent over a half an hour looking for the answer and come up empty.
    How do I find someone's wish list on Amazon? I'm pretty sure I used to be able to go to the Lists drop down and there was an option to search for wish lists by email address, but it's either been removed or moved and I'm just not seeing it.

    So, any pointers on where I should be looking?

    IIRC Amazon got rid of public wish lists.

    I did misremember the conversation - they removed the ability to search for list by email specifically.

    Or any method, other than the list-owner specifically sending you a share link.

    Well, that's annoying. Guess I can stop being irritated at myself for being unobservant and start being irritated at Amazon for removing useful functionality.

    So, Santa, if you're still looking for ideas, here's my Amazon wish list.
    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/27W72X67MCBGU?ref_=wl_share

    Maybe it'll help, my original message wasn't too detailed. Sorry about that.

    oh that's awkward. I think i told santa to check my email for wishlists. I have mine like subdivided so that makes it miserable to have to share individual links.

    side note since I went to amazon to check that, it notified me that brandon sanderson has released a sequel to the book that i bought for a christmas gift last year and if you didn't know, they say brandon sanderson is more machine than man

    OK, been dealing with Thanksgiving, family visiting, sick kids, being sick myself, and I feel bad I never shared out amazon lists since they removed the search feature. So I guess here's individual links for my lists that are less helpful now. Just take these as idea generators. If you want to get whatever else, go for it.

    I uh, discovered that I'll probably be on some kind of road trip for part of my partner's winter break. This meant I had to send off a less personalized package to Santee than I'd have liked, and santa, I'll get back to you on if this impacts being around to get a package. Worst case if we end up doing the long version of the trip option I'll have a friend with keys to our mail room though

    To my Santee, I am sorry you have yet to get a gift from me. I am usually super into this, but school has me swamped. Who would have guessed that electronics engineering finals would be difficult.

    This weekend I will be ordering some things. So do not think I have forgotten about you!

    In numbers you still have time, but December for me is always a month that goes by too quickly.

    Usually take my family on a weekend trip. Then have different holiday parties to attend for different parts of the family, school events for the littles. It just adds up quickly and then it's New Years and I'm wondering where the hell the month went.

    This little, actually big (it says Lifesized!), thing is absolutely adorable. Makes the perfect porgo sounds. I’m seriously debating leaving it in package for collecting or removing so it can roam freely in the house.

    Went to check the mail on my way to grab lunch, and found a package all out of proportion with the normal assortment of bills, credit card offers and realtors looking to buy my apartment.

    As is the tradition, it is sent to the Christmas Tribble for inspection.
    e4l1swn9mgd2.jpg

    I try to explain that opening will have to wait, as I'm supposed to be monitoring the work inbox and phone lines for the weekend. And I've got plans for the evening once I'm done with my shift on the phones.
    The tribble makes a compelling argument that opening should not wait.
    ajcho4tc7yh8.jpg
    I've really got to start taking care to hide the knives.

    With no valid counter argument, and a particularly strong desire to not have to explain why I need stitches, the package is opened, and the tribble continues its investigation.
    1izzr12y0z0t.jpg

    And the tribble perches near the haul and chirbles contentedly. It's work for another year done.
    0nv11dwqnifu.jpg

    There wasn't a note or forum name that I saw, but the return address was from a Christopher at an APO address.
    So, thank you Chris, you've murdered it. I look forward to enjoying a variety of mystery candy that I don't know what 99% of the text means, and building the tank. Not sure what I'll use the Nintendo card on, but I'm sure I'll figure that out.

    Um, I got your pre-advice Amazon box, but it came with 3 other Amazon boxes of stuff that I'd ordered, so I didn't open it right away to notice that it was a pre-advice box. Then the other box arrived! But I worked all weekend, so I didn't get to open anything yet ... but that will change!!! Like, this evening, after the kids are home.

    The suspense is terrible! I hope it'll last. :D
