I know more than the internet does!

Today I have discovered that I know more than the internet does, and it has me stoked! You see, I went to Staples yesterday and saw a Martha Stewart Discbound calendar insert. I was looking for a calendar insert, and I use a discbound system, so imagine my delight when I found one by MARTHA!! Alas, though, there was no information on the shelf about it and I couldn't figure out where it came from to see what else they had. So I asked a helpful gentleman, who seemed just as stumped as I was. He scanned the calendar with his handy-dandy scanner and discovered little information, save that is was $14 and the only one they had in stock. I decided to try my luck on and left the store without it.

So imagine my utter surprise when a search on yielded no results. Neither did the next 3 hours (hyperfocus much?) of searching and scouring the great wide web, all things Martha Stewart, Avery, or Staples. Nothing. Nada. Zip.

As I relayed this to my husband later that night, he mentioned that I should search using the product number. He is a software engineer, and has much more experience with such things, so I determined I would stop by and find the relevant information and search the next day.

Today I went to Staples again. My curiosity got the better of me, and I actually purchased a discbound book and the calendar insert. A search at home, using the upc code, the product number, the "find more products like these at..." url, and every other number I could find produced no result. Again.

So for today, I know more than the internet. AND I have one of these beauties in my possession. It's kind of awesome. =D
