water tower wednesday

 the iPhoto log
 this was taken in september 2012
 i have no idea where it is 
 if i posted this in the past 

remind me
 to tell you
 about the new espresso machine at the office
oh okay
 i'll tell you now

we've had nespresso machines for a long time
 they are quite good
 i am not sure how the topic of a real espresso machine arose 
when i was asked to investigate them
 i discovered 
there were basically two kinds
automated or not 

the price differences were huge 

i reported this along with my recommendation
 we not buy one 

 i was over ruled

 a machine was purchased

 its basically manual
 which means
 you do everything
 from grind the beans to steam them
 if you want milk 
there's an additional steamer part

it arrived on monday
a co-worker spent hours 
assembling it 
after telling me
 it would be easy to set up 


she also made lots of signs
 the men in the office
 would be able
 to make themselves espresso

the one instruction
 that needed to be written
 the clean up after yourself instruction 

was at the very bottom of the list
 she posted

i spent most of tuesday
over how long it took to set up 
how many times she had to call for further instructions

it felt good

i am also going to be saying
i told you so
 it breaks down
