hi coffeemates. you know, everything seems to turn into a story with me...so, if you don't wish to hear a long, drawn-out tale about fruit preserves, if you don't have a burning desire to know which of the jam flavors vitauta finally settled on to spread her stupid scones with--scones which still reside only in her own head, btw--then simply skip the rest of this post. don't worry, she won't mind. she probably won't even notice that we have gone....:)

scuse me, scuse me for a few minutes, friends. i must place my food order online by midnight, or i won't get a delivery tomorrow....

For those with dentures, seedless definitely.

well, i missed the deadline of midnight by a couple of minutes, and didn't get a few of my items ordered, but the bulk of my list is in, and scheduled for delivery tomorrow between 3-5pm.
now, where was i, with my main subject--yes, artisan jams: as it happened, i didn't buy any of the berry jams i was posting about earlier, the blackberry, strawberry-rhubarb, none of them. what i ended up ordering was *blueberry*--and here's the story to go along with this sudden turn of events:
...i'm still deliberating which preserves to buy, when i come across this advertisement for "jan's jams"--jan's blueberry artisan jam...i'm thinking, 'artisan'--that means it's going to cost me a lot, just like with their 'artisan breads', artisan cheeses, and everything else artisan today. but then, what catches my eye, printed on the front of jan's jam jar, is this, "jan's artisan blueberry jams are cooked in 8-10 cup batches, with berries grown free of pesticides and herbicides." then it says that each 9 oz. jar of jan's jam is loaded with TEN cups of fresh berries!! my mouth is watering, but i'm still not about to spend $9 for one single jar of jam. after all, i still want the blackberry and the strawberry-rhubarb jams too...and why do i keep on reading, i really don't know, but i do know i'm about to get sucked in if i don't quit--"the clarks came across the rose tree farm in 1990. it was an old, neglected fruit orchard, which the clarks lovingly restored, turning it into a working family farm, growing blueberries, mulberries and raspberries." by now, you may well think i'm making all of this up, and i wouldn't blame you either. but you would be wrong. the actual, true-life address of this fairytale farm, located near richmond, virginia, is 8200 w. cool hill road, rose hill farm, est. 1990. the only way for this story to have a righteous ending is, if when i open up my nine dollar jar of jan's blueberry artisan jam tomorrow afternoon, that it turns out to be totally, utterly inedible....:)

Good morning (for some values of good) to all. I'm sort of awake. I'm working on my first cup of joe: a double espersso allongé of Lavazza Rossa. It's a lovely, medium roast coffee from Italy, ground for espresso. I have to pay attention while I drink it, so I can enjoy it properly - don't just treat it like something to help me wake up.
