I Killed the Blender...

I was a smoothie-making machine today. I decided to make smoothies out of all our frozen fruit, in hopes of not having to toss it when we move. First was the chocolate-banana packet thingy. Then a variety of mixed fruit smoothies using canteloupe, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mango, and bananas in various combinations. So now instead of frozen fruit, our freezer is now stocked with enough smoothies to stretch to the nearest Jamba Juice & back (which is 45 minutes away).

Last batch--I was blending & blending. I began to detect a slight aroma of burnt motor, but I felt compelled to keep going as I was pretty sure I was reaching pourable-status. Well, a few moments later I visually confirmed the smoking motor, so that was that. Smoothies--just fine. Blender--dead...
