I second the absolute deliciousness of jasmine green tea. I drink one giant mug *every single day.* Sometimes I feel plain green tea, such as sencha, can have a bit of a dirt flavor.

Avoid number 3, the Case Study Daybed from Hive. Those are the "beds" that were supplied by the powers-that-be for single rooms at my graduate dormitory. They make look spare and chic, but after *one* night my back hurt so badly I was practically crippled. Take it from me: don't make your guests sleep on that.

I really wish you guys would pull back and show more whole-room views. I find it really frustrating. Detail pics are all fine and good, but they're meaningless if I can't see how they're used in the entire scheme.

I fell in love with Gueuze many years ago while in a relationship with a Belgian. It's incredibly tasty and yet I find it next to impossible to locate it here, particularly for home purchase rather than in a Belgian-theme pub. I think one of the best is Belle-Vue Gueuze. Really delicious. Good luck finding it though.

Ditto a previous comment about making baby food. This would make it so much easier for me to blend stuff for my bebe.

I was disappointed with the first carrier I purchased. Maybe my son will like this one better!

I thought this was good, but actually needed a little more complexity. Next time, in the lemon and olive oil mix, I'm going to add one minced garlic clove and a tiny bit of anchovy paste.

why, why, why do baby products have to be scented? Why do we keep perfuming our babies? I really hoped Method would offer an unscented choice in this line. Someone please tell me they do. If not, I'm disappointed in them.

My current vacuum was a gift and it's just awful! It's worse than useless because it spits a lot of dust out while NOT sucking dirt up!
