It's been sort of negative on here as of late so I thought I would start a "what I like thread". Post pictures or write about things you like and discuss... I'll start:

haha. Yes, there has been a lot a negative stuff. The majority of the problems involve 14 year old kids getting each other pregnant and needing to take viagra because they can't get horny after 1 day.

Up, up in my studio, studio
Music, especially electronic. I play and program synths and sequencers too.


International cuisine, especially Asian. Italian, Spanish tapas and Mexican will do nicely, too.


My adult beverage of choice:


Florida. I was born in Orlando, and every time I go there on vacation, it feels like I'm "coming home".


And of course, spending time with my family.

My wife and I have been wondering about those Keurig coffee machines. Do they live up to the hype? Are there any disadvantages?
I definitely love mine. Disadvantages? If you're the type of person that drinks a pot of coffee every morning, doing this via the Keurig can get expensive. So if I'm getting ready for work and only plan on having a cup or two, I use the Keurig. If it's going to be a lazy morning where I think I'll be drinking lots of coffee, I'll put on a regular pot. My only other quibble is that the water pump is sort of loud.

My pump is quite silent.

I love them. 3x cups a day for me and I love the variety, the ease of use, the fact that my coffee doesn't cook while sitting, and the overall sexiness of the machine.

What model do you have? I was surprised by how loud it was when I first used mine, but some researching online indicated it was normal, so I just learned to live with it. Perhaps the newer ones are better.

Thanks, jessica. and dmr727. I'll check it out and perhaps get one of those "My Keurig" adapters that allow using other coffee brands. My mother in law loves Starbucks Caffe Verona, and this way we wouldn't have to make a whole pot for her when she visits.
