Coffee

Bet you wondered if I'd ever talk about it huh? I mean it's in the title but I've only ever given it a passing reference. Well, since I am dying of boredom I've decided it's time...plus I was inspired by Tosin's ode to the bean ;) Now, I'm not nearly as addicted or in awe as she is but I enjoy a good cup of coffee just like the next person :)

The picture on the left is me, at the Blodel Conservetory in Vancouver. I'm holding the mighty bean in it's most pure form :D

I actually have quiet a reputation of being a coffee freak. I'll let you in on a little secret. I'm not...a freak that is. I have one cup of instant << gasp >> every morning and that's usually it. So, where does the reputation come from? The fact that practically every time I visit Starbucks I post about it on SS. << rolleyes >> And it's not that I go a lot, I just like posting about it. That's one of the reasons I haven't addressed coffee yet in this blog. I haven't been to Starbucks in...checking receipts...in over two weeks! In fact I've only been four times in the last six weeks or so. One of those times was at the original Starbucks at Pikes Place in Seattle (as pictured right)

Now, I'll let you in on another secret (I'm really baring my soul here aren't I?) I rarely drink coffee at Starbucks. It's usually specialty drinks. The most plain drink I get is a decaf-non-fat-no-foam-latte or, regular with caffine when I need a pick me up. Normally, my drink of choice is a much-modified chai. It is so smooth and wonderful and instantly destresses me. Lately, as a money saving measure I've taken to buying the concentrate and mixing it and nuking it here at work. Not the same because you don't get the "coffee house experience" but it's helped break my addiction ;)

So there you go. The truth about Heidi and coffee :D

~Heidi...really craving a chai right now :(
