So I decided to test out my new blender and make myself a fruti and yogurt smoothie. Last night I put 1/2 pine of plain yogurt in the freezer.* This morning I took it out, thawed it in the microwave for a minute on low (just enough so i could cut in into chuncks, but not melt it back to normal). I cut it into chunks, dropped the chunks in the blender along with 1 orange, peeled and sliced, 1 banana (peeled and sliced), and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. And I turned the fucker on.
It looked so lovely, my orange and banana smoothie. Lovely and pale and it smelled magnificent.
I took a pint glass from the shelf, took hold of the handle on the blender pitcher and twisted and...
FUCK! THAT'S NOT WHAT'S SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!!!
Instead of the whole pitcher coming off the base (including the bottom of the pitcher with the blade bits), the jug alone came off the base, and the bottom of the jug remained attached. That's right, the bottom of the jug remained attached to the base.
My smoothie, my lovely, beautiful, fragrant smoothie, went all over the counter.
Now I am sad.
And I'm out of yogurt.
*for some fucked up reason you can't buy tubs of frozen yogurt in the supermarkets in England. they have yogurt, and they have ice cream. why they havn't glommed on to the genius that is FroYo I can't say.
