Apparently there was no need for concern over whether or not there would be anything to even blog about. Something-or-other-istan is in an uproar, a 16 year old kid is suing his mother for Facebook slander, and Great White Sharks (yes they get capitalized) are reported now to swim up to 500 feet deeper than they have been known to before (Thank God! Yes!). However, I'm going to shove that (and other fun things for the day- like me offering my professional comedy-writing services up on fiver.com) (ha!) aside and bring this blog into focus by making sure that you are aware of and either a. have, b. will have, or c. [blank- seriously, get one] a Keurig coffee machine.
What's a Keurig, you say? Only the very best beverage-enjoyment machine/ life-altering awesome-contraption available on the market today. Not joking here- tell me that my house is burning down and measure my brainwaves to see what item I think of saving first. The fact that its relatively inexpensive and certainly replaceable notwithstanding, my cat has legs and can run her chubby butt to safety. You can check out the website keurig.com for info on its coffee (and tea, hot chocolate, etc.) brewing specifics, but trust me on this one: get this machine. A Keurig cannot be explained, the same way that you can't describe yellow to a blind person. But once you see yourself a beautiful sunset on a beach with a margarita in your hand, you know you've found something special. I'll leave you with a quote that I always hear, with slight variation, from every person who gets a Keurig: "How did I ever live without this machine?"
Oh, and when you get one try the Breakfast Blend K-cup from Green Mountain Company- it's a very nice intro to the K-cup world. If I could put my meals in K-cups, I would. And sometimes do.
PS one day I'll explain to you my theory about how coffee cures blindness, paralysis, boredom, polio, and scurvy. Not to mention it can actually make you taller and more charismatic over time.
