Hello all you wonderful people, out there in the world.
I’m on vacation all this week, probably relaxing in a hammock even as you read this, so I’m breaking my usual posting schedule. Instead, I’ll be treating you to a round-up of my favorite ever blog posts, one a day, until we resume our regular posting schedule on August 4th.
I’ll be back and posting like regular shortly. In the meanwhile, I’m taking a break from the Spam Bots to cover a posting by a real person.
This comment is actually the first negative feedback I received on my blog. The author goes on at such length, and takes such a castigating tone, that I never had the guts to publish it before. The topic, of course, is coffee – a subject which arouses considerable passion among armchair elitists the world over. It’s one of the food topics I tend to avoid, along with wine and cheese, on account of the number of people who enjoy these things on sophisticated, and utterly humorless, levels.
I’m taken pretty savagely to task regarding my snarky opinions which, I suppose, I probably deserve. To everyone out there who has ever wished they could tell me to just shut my stupid, uneducated, untrained mouth, this one is for you.
