Coffee Incompatibility

Blogathon 2006

I've just realized that my new coffee-making device is seemingly not compatible with any of my coffee-drinking devices. When I read "compatible with any thermos or carafe" on the label, I somehow decided that it would have to work with at least one of my travel mugs, if not a regular mug. But no, they're all too wide. So... no coffee for me! Ack!

Thank goodness for my PG Tips...

There is suddenly a housepainter RIGHT outside my living room window. Boy, that was startling. He is also speaking with some sort of accent. I mean, not a real accent. A theatrical one, sort of similar to the ones people tend to use at Ren fairs. Huh.

Um, where was I?

Oh, clothes! I gave a lot of thought this morning to proper Blogathoning clothes. If I hadn't invited people over, I'd probably just wear pajamas - honestly, I tend to put on pajamas as soon as I get home from work. I love pajamas. But! There are people coming over, so that didn't seem quite right, at least for during the day. (Midnight visitors should totally be expecting pajamas.) But I didn't want to wear real clothes when I'm just going to be hanging around all day. Might as well be comfortable. So last night I picked up some "lounge pants" at Costco. So comfy! They're pajama-like but "real" enough to get away with. And I'm wearing a cotton tank top, no bra, because if I'm going to be awake for 24 hours in my own house I refuse to wear a bra. So there.

I am also wearing a cotton tank and no bra. We rock.

That painter guy sounds kind of surreal. Maybe you could have coffee delivered? ;-)

Proper Thon garb aye? I say go au natural. Nothing keeps you awake quite like your hiney being permanently melted to your desk chair. An woo! for no bras, they are the work of the deveeel. Sorry to hear about the coffee. Maybe you could set the machine in the ledge of the tub, let it brew nonstop into the tub and just hook up a hose from the tub to your mouth? Mmmm tub coffee, the memories....Good luck with the thon and have bunches of fun. Good luck and blessings, Prana

Currently wearing Brian's boxer shorts, a t-shirt from some Saab thing I went to a few years ago, and no bra. If I could get away with being braless more often, I would do it. Free Whilemina(s)!

I wipe my bra off as soon as I walk in the door. Now as I'm over 40 and very large chested you and anyone in a 50 mile radius can tell I'm not wearing a bra. Tough. Have you read any good books lately. What are you studying in college? When you grow up what do you want to be? Do you wear cool boots like Erica? Until next time...

The mug is too big for the machine? And it didn't come with one? Bummer.

Sorry about the coffee. That really does suck. But as a fellow PG Tips-drinker, I know that can go a long way toward helping relieve the caffeine blues.

Hey, I say wear what you want! So long as you're comfortable, I'll be comfortable when I come over later!

I may be bringing Bill with me - I've been having a nasty cough again, it may make driving a little tough. With Bill along, you might consider if there's any furniture you want to move at 10 p.m., now that your roommate's moved out.

Happy Blogging, Kat! I'm not even going to try for commenting every hour, I just don't have it in me. You hang in there. And I promise, you're getting that iced coffee when I come over.

being part of quality painting and restoration, i have to say i think that painter outside was a fo painter because no real painter would use a fake accent and pretend he was in the Renaissance on the job. Just warning you to make sure he doesn't have a huge miss on your building and check his work.

Have you seen the World's Softest Socks at Costco? I've got three packs, and it's true, they're incredibly soft. More important for winter time, but seriously, you need some.

Wow - I'm impressed. You really get PG Tips in the US?
