I know. Most I ever won was $50 years ago. Our state lottery is offering free chances to win online. Best thing EVER...didn't even need to buy a ticket. I rec'd my Visa e-gift card today. OMG! So excited! I'm gonna' try again, today. New game to try and win a $200 Amazon gift card. WISH me luck!

Congrats and good luck!

I once won a bicycle in the roll-up the rim contest at Tim Horton’s (an annual thing they run where you can win fudge by rolling the rim of the cup of coffee/tea you buy).

Wow...very cool. I didn't win, yesterday, but there are other games to enter. What the hell...I've got lots of time on my hands.

Winning sure brought back memories of that feeling you get after a successful print drop. That adrenaline high, man...

Huffing a newly opened bag of whole bean coffee.

Bonus anti peeve:
Replacing my half&half with eggnog during the holiday season.
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.

Not even gonna give us deets on the coffee or your brewing rig? Oof.

P.S. I've been enjoying the small lot whole bean coffees from TJ's lately, but my brewing rig is atrocious. New Year's resolution is to upgrade.

I enjoys those TJ beans as well! I'm definitely no snob. I've paid $60 for 8oz but I'm perfectly happy with $8 lbs. I lean towards African coffees with Kenya being my favorite.
The rig is a saeco super automatic. Daily drink is three shots over ice.

Dats quite a rig for a #noncoffeesnob. The first TJ's small lot was this Ethiopian peaberry coffee. They haven't put one out as good since.
