Beanzawave Is Almost Here!


I love kitchen gadgets. I have a drawer full of stuff like a strawberry huller and a calzone mold…you know, stuff that you can live without but it is kinda handy when you use it that one time a year. Most of it I’ve picked up at yard sales, but this new gadget by Heinz has got to be the king of all kitchen gadgets: The Beansawave. Yes! It’s a mini microwave you keep at your desk for heating up your beans!

This is not a joke, it’s an actual gadget that plugs into the USB drive of your computer and will retail for $160. And you just know no one in the office will ever make fun of you. You’ll be the envy the cubicle crowd! Just look at this dedicated guy enjoying his beans without even taking his eyes off his spreadsheet!

Sloth Sunday

Sloth [slawth or slohth] – noun

Habitual disinclination to exertion; indolence; laziness; general mood on Sundays. Synonyms: shiftlessness, idleness, slackness, the day after Saturdayness.


     I find it no coincidence that sloth and Sunday begin with the same letter. The only problem with Sloth Sunday is when it rolls around while I’m still on a work-imposed deadline.

     Feeling sloth-like is a gross handicap when you’re supposed to be working, leaving me unable to perform in my usual prolific capacity, much less get my work done. Although I don’t have Sunday Q&A for you (look for it on “Totally Okay Now That My Deadline’s Dead Tuesday”) and Coast to Coast Part Two won’t be up until tomorrow, I did find time for a quick re-cap of our busy and enthralling week.

See you tomorrow when we can start this all over again.
