Just opened a new packet of 10 one cup coffee filters. The packaging says that it contains 10 filters and one reusable lid. Well, there were 2 lids stuck together. Ha! In your face Rombouts coffee multinational corporation grin

Hahah one nil against The Man!!

Power to the people!

PseudoBadger Wed 04-Jun-14 09:25:08

Oh shit. Just went to check progress of said coffee filter, and I've accidentally used 2 filters at once. That's going to be a strong cup of coffee. And I've wasted a filter.
Karma is restored sad

It was pretty strong. The spoon was almost standing up.

Oh well, at least you got your moment in the sun wink

I've been having the opposite morning, it's now 9.40 and I feel like the day is already lost.

PseudoBadger Wed 04-Jun-14 09:46:30

I can send you my extra lid if you like?

DizzyKipper Wed 04-Jun-14 09:48:54

Perfect, I'll hang it on my wall as a good luck charm.

Someone somewhere has no lid. As Gore vidal said: It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail.

Sorry to burst your bubble but with the double yolker I had for breakfast... I WIN!

I might buy a kitkat later in the hope of a full coccy finger but I'm scared I might be pushing my luck grin

PseudoBadger Wed 04-Jun-14 10:22:16

A double yolk! Never have I seen such things. Does it mean there's less white though?
Scatter you've made me a bit sad there sad
But I have lost really, see earlier post about the fecking filters, and also dd woke up before I'd managed to get my arse in the shower sad

But you had your perfect moment - all perfect moments are transitory.

(this one very much so) grin

I still say you're winning. I would trade a spare lid for a filter and at least after your double helping of caffeine (wired to the max) you can do a really energetic celebration dance.

DizzyKipper Wed 04-Jun-14 10:37:23

Actually with all that caffeine running through your system surely you're wired to the max and can do all housework/daily drudgery essentials in half the time? I'm envious, in fact I'm reconsidering caffeine...

LangenFlugelHappleHoff Wed 04-Jun-14 10:52:46

pseudoBadger the white is a necessity, the yolk squished into warm toast is the breakfast foodgasam! grin

Oh you plum.

Could you water down the coffee and have TWO?

PseudoBadger Wed 04-Jun-14 10:55:53

I needed that kind of thinking 2 hours ago Chaos grin

EduCated Wed 04-Jun-14 11:03:45

Ooh I had my first double yolker ever the other day. Was very exciting. I was at DM's and squealed for her to c

EduCated Wed 04-Jun-14 11:04:23

To come and have a look grin Did mean my scrambled eggs were very yellow though.

TuckingFablet Wed 04-Jun-14 12:32:54

Don't want to brag but I just had a 4 finger kitkat with TWO solid chocolate fingers.

TuckingFablet Wed 04-Jun-14 12:56:43

<punches tuckingFablet in the boob>


I am going to brag. I bought a box of eggs from Aldi a couple of weeks ago and ALL 6 (you heard it!) ALL 6 were double yolkers! <for the WIN>.
