using the inverted method, i made myself a cup of coffee, filling the water to the 1 mark. once i plunged the coffee into the mug, i added some more hot water to make up the difference, filling the rest with half & half. once again, the coffee tasted diluted. i'm not sure where i'm going wrong. am i adding too much water during the steeping phase? or am i diluting too much in the mug? i need to experiment more to figure out the best method. unfortunately i can only drink a cup of coffee a day maximum, otherwise i can't sleep.
i cooked up the last of my diced ham for one final western omelette while the patriots-dolphins game started at 1pm. playing in miami seems to be new england's kryptonite: tom brady has a 7-9 losing record when playing our conference rival down in florida. so this was a tense game, especially since the game was close and the lead kept on changing hands. the game went down to the wire, with the patriots seemingly in a position to win with just seconds left in the game. but then the miami miracle happened, in a play that seemed impossible, as miami players kept tossing the ball to one another until the final receiver broke free and ran into the endzone. rob gronkowski was in the back field playing safety, and to swat down any hail mary passes, didn't have the speed to catch up to the speedy dolphin (gronkowski even tripped over himself a bit struggling to tackle the receiver). once again the dolphins beat the patriots in miami.
by that point i already had my jacket on, ready to go down to the cafe where they were having some kind of neighborhood business event (holiday stroll). i could've taken the motorcycle, but decided to go by bicycle instead since it was more reliable and i wouldn't have to worry about a dead battery.
