The Barista Is In

A few more odds and ends arrived today, so I finished securing my seat cushions to their bases, and boy does that make a difference. This is one of those easily-overlooked aspects of user experience; the idea that you shouldn’t have to worry about a bulky seat sliding or shifting when you get in and out. It’s one of those things that your guests won’t notice unless it’s broken.

The trick was to switch to Velcro’s “Auto” version, which has a different adhesive compatible with flexible vinyl. You may recall my headrest cushions loosened up and fell off the walls, so I’ll try the same fix there once three more rolls arrive.

My Keurig coffee maker arrived too. It’s a bit bigger than I expected but the color looks great and the coffee is familiar. I’ll have to find a new home for my Nostalgia Electrics machine now:

This was replaced with a Keurig.

I also got a cool skull & crossbones beer cap catcher for next to the sink.

The opener arrives later.
