“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

I think there should be a law against posting Amazon sales on blogs.  And if there were, I would SO be turning Sarah in to the authorities right now.

Against all the rules of logic, decency and good budgeting (when I should be crimping against the eventuality of buying a few little things, like a HOUSE), I am now checking my inbox every five minutes to when THIS:

Kitchen Aid KFP750OB 12-cup food processor

… is going to ship.

Yes.  I just posted a picture of a kitchen appliance that is larger than any posted photo of my son.  I am SUCH a paradigm of Martha-Stewart domesticity.  Only I picture Martha as the white appliance type.  I prefer jet black, or even a racy red.  I like to live dangerous like that.

I am rationalizing my moment of impulse-buy indulgence by the fact that the price has gone up $50 overnight since I purchased it.  And I still have a $20 rebate to claim.  It’s a baaaah-gan.

And if you ask why a family of three needs a food processor with a 12-cup capacity, you will get the same blank stare you would if you asked a balding, paunchy, middle-aged man why he needs a red Corvette convertible.

Because it’s sexy, baby.

    Yeah, but how many HP does it have? How many amps does it draw? Come on, where are the numbers?

    We have something very similar to that….although that one looks much swankier.

    Ooooh. It is sexy. Almost sexy enough to coax me into the kitchen. Almost.

    I’m almost drawn in. But not.

    There’s something about being able to afford a week long trip across country to Los Angeles (and Las Vegas) on the way back, that’s giving me the willpower to refuse.

    That, for a girl who’s never been further west than Houston, is something.

    Not that I wasn”t tempted.

    Ok, I think I might have just died a little from envy, RIGHT here and now. If middle-aged men buy sports cars, does that mean I get to buy a sports appliance??

    Oh dear. That sounded significantly worse than intended.

    Because it enables you to more easily cook in mass quantities and then freeze the food for later consumption. It’s a KitchenAid, they last so long you can give it to Harry for a wedding present. Plus it looks hot sitting on the counter. Need more reasons to justify it? I’ll be glad to help. I have appliance envy.
