This blog is like Seinfeld. It's not really "about" anything.

a blogging we will go...

I wish to apologize to my legions of fans (that includes both of you) for not posting in a while. Everyone else is so good, and I've turned into the big loser in our blogging circle, the Black Sheep of the Blog, if you will.

Well the silence is broken once again!! I wish to announce the purchase of a new home. It's new construction, which means I had to spend all day last Tuesday from 8:30 AM to 6 PM picking out all the colors, fixtures etc. It was a tiring, but fun day of critical decision making. Take the electrical outlet cover plates, for example. "Would you prefer creamy beige, sandy beige, almost beige, beigy-beige, or almond? Well, the decision might seem obvious to you, but one wrong shade of beige could've sent the whole planning session into a tailspin! (Actually, I added "sandy beige" in there as a joke. Could you imagine some fool picking "sandy beige"?? Ha!)

I am most pleased with my decision to use "Cultured Marble" in the showers. The other choices were "Uneducated Redneck Marble", "Smug Ivy League Marble", and "Blue Collar Alcoholic Marble". It was a toss-up between Redneck and Cultured, but I'm glad I upgraded, as the Cultured Marble is more well-traveled, worldy, and will likely make better dinner conversation. Besides, it'll be seeing me naked.

I drove out to the lot the other day and was thrilled to find that a dumpster and a Port-O-Let had been dropped into place. In all my life, I never thought I'd be so happy to find a portable crapper and an industrial sized trash container on my property. Just a sign of things to come!

That's all for me tonight. I'm going to New Jersey tomorrow, so that trip could spell more blogworthy material...

Uh, just one more thing. Do you guys think it's ironic that the word "blog" is not in the "BLOGGER.COM" spell checker?? It's like a fire department without smoke detectors!

it's boca java time!

I am proud to be reviewing (and enjoying) my first cup of Boca Java Gourmet Coffee, while wearing my "Always Blog on a Full Tank" baseball cap, and sipping from the corresponding mug. Tonight's gourmet selection will be "Blogger's Pajama Passion - Blog the night away with this exotic flavored coffee featuring vanilla, kahlua, and caramel." Don't mind if I do!

So the first thing I thought when I tried it was "OW MY TONGUE - THAT'S HOT".

The NEXT thing I thought was "Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y". Seriously. I am blown away by how very drinkable this coffee is. With some flavored coffees, you end up getting something that either (a) tastes like hot chocolate, (b) is so strong you can't choke it down, or (c) is just plain bitter. I can confidently say that this coffee is none of those. The vanilla, kahlua, and caramel flavors are subtle, but just detectable enough to make the flavor VERY interesting. I decided that the next time I make a pot, I'm going to add 50% more beans to see if I can get even more of that good flavor to poke through. To be honest, I think it would be hard to screw up a pot of this coffee by using too few or too many beans, because the coffee itself is so high quality that it can handle variations in the amount you use.

I live in the high desert region of Utah, so it's pretty hot out here, but it'll never be too hot for a cup of Pajama Passion! Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for a warm up...stay tuned for more delicious flavor reviews!
