Thursday, and a Giveway Heads-Up

So. Now I have a UTI, PMS, and a cold, AND the "check engine" light is on in the minivan, AND something is amiss with Rob's orthodontic appliance. You would think I would be a bit cranky. And yet I am not, and it's because I have had a lot--A LOT--of coffee: yesterday a Tassimo arrived for me to review, and I am data-collecting with all my might. Later my mom is coming over so we can try the fancy kind that makes coffee AND frothy milk. AND I will have a Tassimo to give away, and I've emailed Tassimo to find out if there's any way it can be done by Christmas, so anyway my adrenaline about that and my caffeine content are both high. And also, this might be a poor time to let posts languish in your feed reader, because if I hear back that they CAN ship it in time for Christmas, I'll be doing the review FAST with a very short giveaway-entry time. I'll be sure to mention it here and also on Twitter.

In the meantime, Pseudostoops continues her charity-a-day with a post about The Women's Treatment Center. If you click through and leave a comment, she'll increase her donation by another 50 cents and you get to feel like you did something good.

Good Morning.

The check engine light came on in our car, and topping off the washer fluid and coolant solved the problem. Hopefully yours is something so simple. I had a dream last night that you YELLED at us for not commenting on the Pseudostoops blog enough, so I'm off to go comment lest the wrath of Swistle come down on me. Hope you get to feeling better.

Beth- HA HA! I love that dream!

Sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you feel better as the day goes on!

Oooh! Tassimo! I also have PMS and it's snowing and the dog barfed all over the hardwood this morning. Pass the f*cking chocolate.

PMS *and* a UTI??! there's some sort of major flaw in human evolution to allow both of those to happen at the same time.

Oh, man. Yesterday I was feeling really overwhelmed, but I'm doing better today. Maybe because I didn't have any coffee yesterday, but I had a cup today!

Wow - you have a LOT going on. I hope you feel better quickly!

Also, the Tassimo giveaway sounds great! My husband is always saying he likes the Tassimo coffee better... And yet after all his research on coffee machines, he got us a Keurig. So I am interested to hear your review.

I love. love. LOVE our Tassimo! Of course, that may be because you can get Starbucks for it, but the fun drinks are good too.
