Should see Shrek's eyes pop out and steam from his ears when I put an unproven cup on, set it for 12 oz. and then WALK AWAY!!!

I understand "doohickey", "thingy" and "thingamajig". It's all in the context and body language.

I'll admit, I succumbed to subliminal DC suggestions and the need for a new toy. I am now the proud owner of a Keurig Platinum, following a Costco foray. We got the same deal that Andy got. Got the 60 free cups, which will last us for a very long time. We don't drink much coffee, and have just not been happy with the Cuisinart that grinds and brews, as it's a pain to clean and was never hot enough. So far, I'm very pleased with this little machine! We did the initial test on French Vanilla as it was expendable and we don't care for flavored coffees, and were very impressed! It was so much hotter than what the Cuisinart would brew, and quite good! Hopefully more experimentation won't keep me up too late....

Conga-rats Dawg! Enjoy! Funny, I actually drink less now, simply because I don't feel I have to finish off a pot a coffee. Now I don't even have headaches from lack of caffiene.

Thanks PF! Oh, how I remember that caffeine withdrawal headache.

I'm excited to try the whatever cup with my hibiscus tea.

I like the hot water feature for tea, good thing, I have gobs of tea bags. The only tea K-Cups I have are Sleepytime and English Breakfast. I go through lots of those.

Now don't sit up all night trying the next interesting. And be sure to write down the ones you have tried with a short review so you can remember which ones you liked. I take the odd ones that come as samples or ones we don't care for to work and put them in the front conference room for others to try.

I'm not a tea drinker, but that Sleepytime was good. I drank it straight up and enjoyed the flavor.

It's a nightly ritual, just smelling it makes me start to relax.

Yes, good aroma, too.
Does it actually make you sleepy, or is it caffeine free?

Chamomile tea is sleep inducing, the tea is completely caffiene free.
