this blog doesn’t mean to gloat — ok, it does — but it is about to immerse itself in the sober study of panama’s best.

you might ask this blog why three pounds of coffee is worth $100. easy! the blogwife didn’t say no! in this peerless wasteland, a pursed lip is akin to a hearty mandate. besides, if informed hype is any indicator, this blog will soon be posting digital scans of its pooling drool as it waits for the carmen estate to complete its post-roast rest period.

this blog’s daughter, alas, will be getting naught but a gleaming triple basket for her looming birthday. daddee’s broke, sweetie. but how about some play chaff? wouldn’t that be fun, hmmm?
