Heeeere comes technology!

good morning

My wife is a bit wary of technology. I don't blame her. Whenever something doesn't work, or acts funny, and there is no apparent method behind the madness, it's often technology trying to think for us. It reminds me of the planet in Foundation, where the religious leaders were actually tech experts, able to manipulate the tech-- but it seemed like magic to onlookers.

Eight years ago, before we were married, we lived in a tiny, 650-sq. ft. house. Our coffee nook was simply a Mr. Coffee with the red LED timer.

Well anyway, here is our little coffee nook now. There's a fancier coffee machine (we love the design of it, especially the green clock), a coffee grinder, TV/DVD, and Jensen iPod dock/radio (with an AUX input still, which is great when we sometimes plug in the Airport Express for audio streaming).

You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

Though, to be honest, I'd be happy with a piano in the living room and a French press in the kitchen.
