Two Free Mochas!

... well, not exactly free, because time is money. More on that in a bit.

I did something today that I don't usually do: I had a nice, relaxing ride to the bus. It took 12 minutes for an average speed of 10 miles per hour. But hey, I left on time and could afford to just enjoy the sights and sounds of my short morning ride.

The manager was late getting to the coffee shop this morning. As such, Lorin, JR and I (among others) had a choice: Wait for this manager to show up, or walk a block to the other Starbucks. We all decided to be lazy -- mostly for the prospect of getting our caffeine fix on-the-house. After the manager finally showed up, we did -- indeed -- get our drinks gratis plus a courtesy card for a free drink next time. At least they know where their bread is buttered.

I'd better get crack-a-lackin'. I'm in the middle of two projects with short deadlines, and the caffeine buzz is finally starting to take hold. I'd better ride the wave while it lasts!

Random Tunage:
INXS - Need You Tonight
Das Ich - Destillat (VNV Nation Remix)

Looking back at your posts, I missed quite a lot.

One of the things that attracts me to different blogs is photos of different parts of the world/country.

Your zig zag of doom photos are especially interesting as is the post about the KATY trail. It's on my list of someday bike rides.

Nothing beats a free coffee. Well, let's just say there are few pleasures that measure up to a free coffee.

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, or have a nice weekend. Best to you anyway.
