No More Starbucks Runs!

Today, we got a Nespresso D290. Starting tomorrow morning, Mr. Nonny Nu will make his own caramel macchiato's! What does this mean? This means that I will have 20 more minutes of peace and quiet in the morning to watch my BBC shows or harass the Nu kitties. I may even spend 10 of those extra minutes on the stationary bike (totally 50 minutes). I got to sample one coffee tonight. It wasn't too bad. We have to learn how to fiddle with the settings, but I think this will work out just fine. And, now that I imagine the coffee with a couple slices of Safeway's almond poppyseed pudding ring (yes, that's really what it's called!), yummmmmm... Just think. With venti Starbucks caramel macchiato's costing $3.95 a pop, we will be flush on cup number 125. That's not even 6 months away.

I'm no math whiz and I never got tutored by finding a math whiz through a pull tab poster, but my meager calculations figure your new toy priced out at just under $500 smackeroos!?!?!?!?! Damn, you must love you some macchiatos!

sbucks reduced fat coffee cake swirl cake thing is way too good to pass up though.

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

fwiw, the thing pumps out a mean espresso at lightening speed. i'm still working on my crappiato recipe, but it's coming along. beats the hell out of paying $4 a pop at starbucks.

midge: sorry i called you old at 22 when you're actually 23. (silly crone.)

Nonny Nu said...

Man from U.N.C.L.E.: I am hoping that this thing will pay for itself.

Silly Crone: I tried it. It still tastes like diet to me. EW.

Mr. Nonny Nu: I have nothing to say to you.

Such bourgeois DINKs. :) That may be enough to lure me back into your house o' cat dander.

Nonny Nu said...

YAY! I'll buy a Blockus.

stillman said...

forget Blokus, buy waterproof rain gear and hiking boots!

stillman said...

ps - at your billing rate, that thing will pay for itself in about three days. Get to work earlier, slave!

not with that attitude it won't, young lady! i've had just about enough of your smartaleckiness. from now on, i want to see that room of yours clean. i want to see *you* get up and make breakfast for a change. no more of this t.v. time, playing around on that stayplation 3--or whatever it is you kids play on now. another thing: keep that door of yours open and stop burning that smelly incense--what do you need it for anyway? and whose underwear is this? i know i didn't buy it. tell that friend of yours if he wants to come into *this* house, he'd better get a haircut! and you *will* wash, feed, and pet the kitties on a regular basis. no more of this 'i feel a sneeze coming on.' now get to it, and stay out of my bathroom vanity! there's nothing in there that should interest you.

That is an expensive gadget. I'm sure with the price of StarSuck, this thing will pay for itself in no time.
I am boycotting StarSuck as well as any coffee house that charge an arm and leg. It high-way robbery.
I have a 10$ coffee maker myself. This thing had paid for itself 4 years ago and still gurgling every morning.
Hooooahhh to FOB style of living.

Nonny Nu said...

MonkeyPig, I can't wait until you come visit again. This thing can make steamed milk for your lattes!! You can have as many as you want and Mr. Nonny Nu will make them for you!!

I am also boycotting Starbucks and any other coffee house that charges an arm and a leg (more on that on today's blog entry...).
