Well, I value my time, and I agree it might be nice for your team to have a feel for who I am,
I do NOT see the need to get to know everyone on your team. Especially so many of them, and for
as long as you plan. Please get this down to a 15 - 20 minute meet and greet via skype, and I
would be glad to do it.
Books that lie to children, and tell them dinosaurs lived only "millions and millions of year ago" are an eyesore. The Taung Child is a skull found of a human baby in South Africa with raptor markings on the skull surface and eye sockets. Inventing myths about dinosaurs is a key brainwashing technique for evolution. Many areas of Africa have elusive dinosaurs to this day based on eyewitness reports from tribes and missionaries alike. Along with giant 5 foot spiders "J'bo Fofi" etc.. Evolution is a colossal lie-a-saurus.

She suggested the Star Wars marathon . after I bought her 3 SW Funko Pops at the local Gamestop, where she wanted to enter.
And we first met in a library... we're definetely a geeky couple! Also there is a shelf dedicated to various Star Wars, Star Trek and Doctor Who collectibles, plus one dedicated to LOTR/The Hobbit and Harry Potter... and another one, hers only, to Jane Austen. There is how our money go...
I just recently purchased the few Star Trek movies not in my collection. I have TOS, all 10 movies, plus the two reboots. I'm currently working on TNG. Not sure if I want the rest though. DS9 and Voyager were OK, but Enterprise just left me feeling blah.
When you are dead, you won't even know that you are dead. It's a pain only felt by others.
So, the new coffee peculator finished producing it boiling swill. Yet, my cup runneth over!
Before this, they had a Keurig setup. That is an interesting psychological study. The coffee is severely overpriced. The little Keurig cups (by the billions)are an environmental horror story. On a good day, the coffee produced it substandard mediocrity. Yet, it's madly popular.
There's no redeeming characteristic, except, of course, the delusion that the aficionados have that they're sipping real coffee.
What price convenience!
So, with the repeated breakdowns of the K-Cup conraption - the swill, literally perked by the gallon, has won out. Frighteningly, it taste more like coffee.*
Indeed, my cup runneth over! (Ouch - that's elephanting hot!)
* I will make mud-coffee or use a personal cup-at-a-time often enough to prevent my total moral and physical collapse.
My main coffee source at home is a 6-cup Moka. It has a high yield of coffee and wastes less powder than an espresso machine.
I bought a Nespresso machine, with the k-cups, because sometimes I empty the moka, forget to make another batch and wake up the day after without coffee - you do not want me to drive without coffee. Since my usual time from bed to car is 15 minutes and my alarm clock is regulated for this I do not have the time to prepare a moka if it's empty so a k-cup is THE solution, in 40 seconds I avoid the risk of collisions with other vehicles.
But the k-cups are insanely costly and the quality is usually average at most.

The hot water dispensing mode may be used to create some mud-coffee (very very finely ground coffee thrown in cup, then add water, stir, and wait until it settles). It's extremely resource efficient, taste like what it is: freshly brewed, an helps avoid the agonizing decision of whether the taste of Kcup coffee is any less painful than a vehicular incident.
