my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

peet’s is good coffee

i bought peet’s ground coffee from safeway the other day in lieu of the usual safeway stuff. i made the mistake of telling the wife, who has an affinity to the safeway select brand. i should have staged the whole thing like those hidden camera coffee commercials some years ago.

‘we’ve secretly switched the coffee at this fancy restaurant to folgers crystals. let’s see if anyone notices.’

of course, i got some chirping when i let her know of my experimentation. something about ‘not authorized’ or ‘why didn’t you clear it with me’.

this morning, i get the following over chat:

[09:32] leslee: the peets coffee is good
[09:32] leslee: doesn’t have the extra flavor of the safeway

excellent! it’s not a clear admission, but i’ll take what i can get!

side note: peet’s business is rising, kind of the ‘anti-starbucks’ [yahoo biz]

  • Leslee!!

    …and the next statement was:
    So even though it’s plain, the creamer gives it it’s own flavor. Peet’s is pretty good though.
