Couldn’t find my camera, so had to make do with a shot from my isight.
Here’ s a delicious cup of french pressed coffee. It is made from the Green Ones whole bean coffee we got from a friend who works there. They get a pound of free coffee a week, and he was gracious enough to share the caffeinated wealth.
The coffee is one of the few things that keeps me cranking through the day in the winter. The short days are more bearable when they are punctuated with hot good stuff.
Merry Christmas to you and Presh!
Guest Cup 58 is from my friend (and former advisorling) Mary, aka djlemur. Mary is my favorite writer of all time, though she never lets me read what she writes. Occaisionally, she will point me to her blog (currently, frink! script! ptank!). I just noticed that she goes by lemurs now. Dearest Mary you shall always be djlemur to me. Presh sends warmth and I wish you a Happy Christmas. Did you see what I did in your honour? 50000monkeys.thecoolkids.us A lemur is a kind of monkey, non? Thank you for the cup, Mary – kisses to Dragons.
This cup represents an interlude during a Saturday bicycle ride. Outside, the temperature is 38 degrees, give or take a degree or two. Inside the coffeehouse (Greensboro’s Cheesecakes by Alex), our group is sitting around a table speculating about the origins of green bean casserole, comparing cross-state rides, and laughing at Cliff, who touched a hot part of a light fixture to prove to himself that it was, indeed, hot.
The coffee itself is Counter Culture, caffeinated and free of cream or sweeteners. Just the way I like it.
Guest Cup 57 is from Ian Joyce, marketing communication consultant and writer. Hi Ian, I am also one of those who cannot not touch and I have the scars and burn marks to prove it. May I share a secret? I have never had a green bean casserole, nor know anyone who has had one. I think. I remember a tuna fish casserole from my youth. But, not a green bean one, nor any sort of hot dish – though I did spend time in Minnesota. Thank you for the cup and for starting up an interesting new quest.
iTripped said that you could use our coffee as guest coffees. very exciting. if you’re ever in Vancouver, come out to UBC for lunch and you can be my guest lunch. http://lunchatthevillage.blogspot.com
I attached my coffee to this mail. not sure which one you’d want, since my mug is enjoyable from both sides. and if you want to know what the coffee is, it’s an eggnog latte from starbucks. if you just wanted normal coffee, lemme know. I can do that, too.
Guest Cup 56 is from gwilli of the lunchatthevillage blog. He is my brother-in-blog – he shoots his lunches and posts them. They have some really tasty looking food up there. With the exception of the burgers, it looks like our tastes match pretty well. I will take you up on that offer next time (which will be my first time) I am in the UBC. Thanks for the cup!
