what folks are ordering

The things AAUGH Blog readers order always fascinate me (to be clear: Amazon shows me what you order after clicking through here, but don’t show me who orders things, or even which different items were part of the same order.) There are, unsurprisingly, orders for things talked about on the blog, like The Peanuts Collection or the A Very Peanuts Christmas pillow book. There are plenty of other Peanuts items, like a messenger bag or a t-shirt. But then there are all the things that one would never guess from the nature of this blog.

Thanks to all of you who order the odd stuff through here – these orders help keep the blog running. And hey, if you’re thinking of ordering some gifts and having them sent either to your house or right to the recipient using Amazon’s free super-saver shipping, you’ve got one day left to place your order and have it get there in time. So go, shop!

(And a reminder: A Charlie Brown Christmas is on ABC again tonight.)
