Yea, though I walk through the valley

Now that our lovely guests from England have left, blogging shall resume as usual. I have some exciting things planned for the coming weeks too, so stay tuned.

One bit of unfortunate news, however. With money gladly received for my birthday I purposed to purchase a second hand Nuova Simonelli espresso machine (Oscar) – they make utterly glorious espresso. However, just before it was purchased it become clear that the blasted thing had a leak. Given that this was one of the best deals I have ever gotten within a mile of, I’m a bit gutted.

OK, hardly the end of the world, but in my small over-caffeine dosed postgrad world, this was the mother of all disappointments.

‘For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with the lack of a Nuova Simonelli Oscar espresso machine, with reduced caffeine levels in the blood, with early morning bloodshot eyed writing without the double-shot espresso kick up the backside, and calamities. For when I am without enough caffeine and shake all over the place, then I am strong’ 2 Cor 12:10 (Suspicious Version)

How could you waste money that could potentially be used for buying books on a machine that creates that virile, mud-like, odious and insidious substance called coffee? Really, what were you thinking? (You can guess I'm not a coffee drinker). Happy birthday anyway!
