Friday Five - January 28, 2011

First, I wanted to let you all know that one of the three Solofill winners did not get in touch in time, so I have chosen a new winner. Congratulations Violet!

This is last week's five from It is entirely possible I will want to do this week's as well, when they're up, but I liked these so I'm doing them. I make my own rules, I'm a rebel, yeahhhhhh.

1. There are superheroes named Superman, Superfly, and Supergirl. Based on your performance this past week in whatever you do, what would have been your Super_____ name?

Super Mama. Without a doubt. Maybe also Super No-Need-for-Sleep-Woman

2. This week, what has been superterrific and what has been superlame?

Superterrific - I'm now on a local mom advisory board of sorts for a new local news website. As I find out more, I'll post about it. It's not for mom issues as much as what's going on around town, and I think it will be fun. Also, my kid is making incredible progress. And we started Reiki therapy with her and I think it's going to help.
Superlame - Baby no naps. Baby no sleeps. Me being exhausted and not getting things done that I wanted to do. 

3. Which of Superman’s abilities would have been the most useful this week?

Mind reading and flying. But I always want those abilities.

4. What do you most expect will be super this weekend?

I'm taking a short class in giving massages to your kid, and that should be fun. No other big plans, so not much else that's super, I suppose. 

5. What are your thoughts this week about the coming Super Bowl?

I have no idea who is playing (I root in a vague way for the Patriots and I sort of am aware of the Falcons and I know neither team is in this year). Instead, I will tell you that I am very excited for the Puppy Bowl, as always. Especially for Kitten Half Time.

  1. I LOVE MY SOLOFILL!!! This thing is amazing!

    I really was so disappointed with the My K-Cup, I never thought I'd be able to make a cup of my own coffee in my Keurig. I wish I'd known about the Solofill earlier.

    Soon as I got it, I tore it open and made a cup of coffee. And it was good and strong, not at all like the water that came out with the My K-Cup. YAY!

    And using it with the machine and cleaning up? There's no way it could be easier. The My K-Cup is so fiddly and you have to remove the unit's filter assembly thingie and fark around with multiple parts and pieces. And I had to keep tabs on where the instructions were to remember how to go through this convoluted process each time.

    But the Solofill, it's just one piece! You put coffee grounds in, close the lid, and pop it into the unit like a normal K-Cup. When you're done, you rinse it out. Nothing to take apart, no pieces to lose, no instructions to keep track of ... just pure simplicity.

    Why the heck didn't Keurig think of this??? Oh yeah, they probably wanted to make it so complicated that people would just give up and keep buying K-Cups because they were easier. Which, if that's so, is really silly, because the K-Cups will always give me more variety than if I ran around buying bags of beans or ground coffee from all the different coffee vendors separately.
