Writer’s Blo(g)ck?

Wow, I got nothing. This is definitely going to be one of those “stuff happened” entries as just about all that’s gone on today was I had too much coffee (for which I had good service again) this morning and...

What a difference a day makes

So I must have been trapped in Bizarro Starbucks World yesterday morning since today’s visit was almost like an old-school commercial or the intro to a 50’s tv show. I walked in and smiled at the barista as usual and...

It’s already such a good morning…

Nothing like waking up with Federally mandated jet-lag, but at least I know that the rest of the country’s going to have it as well. It’s going to suck when my body catches up with the time change and I’ll...

Past News: Dalai Lama got medal, Dumbledore still gay

I was just recycling some old papers at my desk and came across this image on the cover of last Thursday’s express and something about the picture and pose made me think that the perfect caption for this photo would...

Good? Morning…

When you really need motivation to wake up!

When the Senseo breaks down, I think I know what I’m buying to replace it, the Saeco Etienne Louis espresso coffee machine. The cover of Etienne Louis is a steel sphere, whereas the spikes and the supports are made from...

Disbelief not suspended!

For some reason I was thinking about the movie The Devil Wears Prada and the scenes where it was noted how long it was taking for Andy to bring Miranda’s coffee and it still doesn’t mesh in my head. I...

Pride 2007: Interlude / Frank

Got a good bead on laundry, nearly done with the iced latte and I can feel it’s magic workin’ on me. I need to take some things over the dry cleaners but I am reluctant to head back outside. It’s...

Shika-shika ka-BOOM!

Some storm last night, huh? (ok, that picture isn’t from last night but you get the point) It woke me up in the wee early hours. I thought it was my nature mp3s, but after the bright flash and subsequent...

God’ll get you for that…

Co-workers and I were trying out a new Starbucks the other day, one that could potentially be “on the way” from the metro to the office. Recently Starbucks has been running this My Starbucks promotion, they finally put up what...
