i have a keurig coffeemaker coming in the post next week! this is the B145, my favorite size and model keurig. i bought it for under forty dollars, plus the cost of an 8 case supply of assorted keurig k cups @ only 50c each.
i caught some great sales online for christmas presents over the holidays this year, but this deal is the best one by far! i was running very low on coffee. the coffee machine will be a spare.... :)

happy new year, coffeemates! have you befriended a snake lately?

kicking back with a cuppa emeril's big easy, and watching american idol. i know, i know, i swore off AI last season after the debacle with nicki minaj. but JLO is back as a judge, and harry connick jr. came on board, so i'm giving idol another look. last night's debut show showcased some exciting young vocalists, and harry gives off a seductively brainy swag....

i know, taxy, and i'm not trying to convert you. hopefully, you will find my clips from next month's sochi olympic games more enjoyable. i'm having a mug of emeril's 'big easy' coffee. mmm--puts me in a new orleans frame of mind. wish i had me a muffin, or a beignet, with a fine sugar dusting....

i'm saddened and outraged to see that amanda knox was once again found guilty in italy of murdering her roommate, having won an appeal in 2011. i don't mean this as a political statement, or in any way anti-italian. i just feel that a serious injustice was repeated today against an innocent young american student.

Having read her book, I feel sympathy toward Amanda Knox. Italy had released her after overturning her conviction. Enough.

I wonder what will become of her co-defendant.
