Better Than Crack

Nico will likely tell me that nobody uses crack anymore, and I should come up with a better title for this post. However, "Better Than Meth" just does not have the same ring to it...also, I have this suspicion that freebasing is still popular, but that it is just too expensive for the kids in her 'hood.

Back to the point, my Chrismukkah present to myself:

We stayed at several hotels in Italy that had these "one-touch" cappuccino machines. This one (made by Delonghi for Nespresso) will make espresso, espresso lungo, cappuccino, or latte with almost no effort. I'll post a full review at a later date. So far, I everything it has made me has been excellent, though the cappuccino comes out a little cold for my (American) taste.

(As an aside, I had to go to pharmacy school to figure out what freebasing actually meant. Later, when I get my customery withdrawal headache, I am going to freebase some naproxen. Shoot, freebase naproxen is prescription only.)

Wait - I thought pharmacists don't do drugs.

Meth is currently the most popular drug here in the OC. That's not to say people wouldn't do cocaine if they could afford it. Meth is just more available, and, I'm told, more fun.

I hope that thing fits in your luggage.

How did you know we're planning a DC trip? Hey, how long are fish and visitors good for?

Dude... do you think that I ever read comments after I drop my pearls?

Well, this response excepted I don't.

And the answer... Until they start to smell?

If you're seriously comin' to town let us know. You can crash with us for a few days and also the place down South for as long as you want. Both yours for the asking.
