High Maintenance

Filed under: — Kate @ 3:43 pm EST

I don’t normally buy my coffee at Starbucks (I see them as a caffeination supply of last resort), but I couldn’t resist consulting The Oracle of Starbucks.

So I entered my usual order: a tall triple skinny sugar-free hazelnut latte. I must say, the results were a little bit spooky…

Behold the Oracle’s wisdom:

Personality type: High Maintenance

You pride yourself on being assertive and direct; everyone else thinks you’re bossy and arrogant. You’re constantly running your mouth about topics that only you would find interesting. Your capacity for wasting other people’s time is limitless. Your friends find you intolerable, that’s why they’re plotting to kill you.

Also drinks: Water. Bottled, chilled, with four ice cubes, a twist of lemon, in a crystal glass.
Can also be found at: Trendy martini bars

This Just In: Spilling Coffee is Bad

Filed under: — Kate @ 12:58 pm EST

Bad: Spilling your coffee.
Good: You don’t spill all of your coffee.
Bad: You spill the coffee right over the crack in your desk.
Bad: It leaks through the crack and onto your pants.
Good: Your pants are dark in color and don’t show the stain.
Bad: Your pants (and therefore you) will smell like coffee for the rest of the day.
Bad: You spill it on your pda case.
Good: Your pda wasn’t inside the case.
Bad: Your pda case now smells like coffee and vanilla.

The score:
Good: 3
Bad: 6

Bad wins. Spilling coffee is bad.


Where Did My Day Go?

Filed under: — Kate @ 4:15 pm EST

Crap, is it after 4:00 already? Where did my day go?

And can I have it back, please?

Could this have something to do with the fact that I didn’t get my morning latte until 12:35 PM, and therefore don’t remember what happened before then?


Latte Art

Filed under: — Kate @ 12:42 pm EST

The guys that run the little coffee joint I patronize often make little designs in the foam on my latte–mostly hearts, or the occasional flower. It’s neat.

So after I got my morning fix, I remembered a site that I first saw on Blinq last week: Latte Art.

I thought it was so cool.

The site is in Dutch, but that should’t keep you from enjoying the pretty pictures. :-)


I’m So Tired, My Mind is on the Blink

Five shots of espresso, and I still can’t keep my eyes open. Cursed insomnia!


Caffeine Addict

You know you have a caffeine problem when…

…you refer to the people who work in the local coffee place as “your dealers.”
