retail: done.

so because I had a car reservation from 6am to noon and although I got back from the airport around 9:30 I went back and got in a different car as someone had taken the one I had been using, and used up the rest of my reservation time at the bed bath and beyond/trader joes/nordstrom rack complex down the street. I swear that next to joshua tree it is one of my favorite driving destinations. there's rainbow grocery too, but I usually walk there although will stop by on the way home if I happen to have a car although I did not do that today.

so I bought this coffee maker for half the list price because bb&b have good prices anyway and then I used the 20% off coupon that they send every household in the US five or six times a week so it turned out to be way cheaper than what cuisinart will charge you if you buy it online from them.

it has a water filter and because I am too lazy to pour brita-filtered water into the coffeemaker I now get filtered water just filling the thing from the tap and I have to say it really does taste better. who knew. of course I was also using a hand-me-down coffeemaker from somebody's office somewhere tangentially connected to sandy as is half the world and who knows when it had last been cleaned so this is a whole new coffee experience for me.

it is, however, putting me to sleep, as caffeine will if you drink it on less than your required amount of prior sleep. which is fine. the weather is relatively cool and I think a crawl back up to bed would be simply delightful.

so I'll see everyone after my nap.

isn't it nice? I couldn't believe the list price when I looked it up! I'll have to see what amazon and various other online retailers actually sell it for.

it didn't even occur to me to buy cups, although maybe I'll get myself a nice stainless steel travel mug to go with it. thing is, this apt has been handed down from housemate to housemate for about 25 years I think and as people move out they have left, among other things, about a zillion coffee cups. a couple of years ago we even went through them all to give away the ones we didn't really like but we still have way too many for two people.
