Odds: I did hear back from this fabulous blogger woman.
the coffee maker ICK to which she referred in the comments here? URINE.
As in: people inexplicably PEE in their hotel room coffee makers (an answer which only served to point out to me what a vivid imagination I have. Id gone all *sorts* of grossdarkkplaces with this one & as a result thought, “pee? huh. ok.”).
Another place I went was pondering if I should haul vinegar along with me now on my travels as I ALWAYS (used to always? who can say) use the in-room Mister for my drinking and eating pleasure.
Blogher attendees? you gonna bring a bottle along?
Ends: Yes (*sigh*) we’re still waiting to hear back from this guy (but I hath all faith he wont leave us hanging too long):
