Herefore art I!†
UPDATE: In response to my‡ inquiry, Williams-Sonoma contacted me yesterday to let me know the food processor of my dreams§ is now available for mail order.
As it will not be in stores for at least a week, and then only in limited quantities, I shelled out the extra $30 to have it delivered to my doorstep.
[SUMMARY: Obsession can be an expensive thing.]
It will be home tomorrow.
†FOOTNOTE (crossed): I think I'm funny.
‡FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): ...somewhat stressy, breathe-in-a-bag-style...
§FOOTNOTE (swerved): Though not the one where I save the world by teaching Vladmir Putin to dance.
