I have been without a turntable for the past couple of years. Certain friends of mine will know how much of a blasphemy this is. My records are lonely and unplayed on a shelf, including, but not limited to My Bloody Valentine’s “Loveless”, the first Queens of the Stone Age ever, Rick Springfield’s “Success Hasn’t Spoiled Me Yet”, Shawn Cassidy’s “That’s Rock ‘n’ Roll”, my 1st ever 45, and it goes on.
In short, I need a record player. And I want one that can rip from vinyl to MP3, and contains its own speaker system. SELF SUFFICIENT RECORD PLAYER, PLEASE.
Oh, there you are!
I wish to put this in my pocket and carry it around. If it had a nose, I would kiss it. It is THAT CUTE.

I love my Senseo, but it is a bargazillion years old, and I have to drive an hour away to get pods for the sucker. This one will let me use a My KCup and fill it with my own ground bean. I think when I’m done with my current box o’ Senseo pods, I’ll be investing in a new single serve coffee maker.
Toasters can be so pretty. So pretty!
It almost makes you wish that winter would last a little longer.
There are advantages to renting when you move to a new city – you get to know neighbourhoods and really figure out where you want to put down roots.
On the flipside, damn, you’re stuck with appliances that can be kind of stinky.
When I get to slap on the leash of a mortgage, hopefully, all things working out the way I hope they will, in mid-2009, I’ll be very much wanting to fill my kitchen with these retro-style appliances by Northstar.
