Out of the Blue

Somewhere along the way MrsBlue has become a Star Wars fan. This was completely unexpected by me, because she was indifferent just a few years ago, but her work on children's books on the series forced her to watch the first two trilogies, and drew her in. We usually don't go to the movies, but we did make it out to see both The Force Awakens and Rogue One, which shows how far this goes. And before I even got to ask about The Last Jedi, she asked me if we had tickets yet after seeing a commercial for it. So I hit Fandango and now we are set for a week from Thursday, hopeful that going to the first show will help avoid spoilers. There's no way I could have influenced this to happen myself, so I just have to thank the fates for working it all out for me. Or perhaps it was not the fates, but The Force?

Cool, I just used the address to make it my default Amazon link, thanks!

No need... we were booted from Amazon's affiliate program for the way the links were presented. If we get re-accepted, the way we are compensated won't change, but the links will have to be their normal programmatic ads, and not the static links we presented before.

That said, thank you all for the support you offered through the referral links, it's greatly appreciated. Hopefully they will re-accept us and we can continue to use the program under their terms. But if we do, it will be with a new affiliate code, the old one is now dead as disco. I probably shouldn't address too directly so much going forward, as making oblique references to compensation from the program is the type of thing that gets one booted... guess it's a little like fight club.
