How much do those things cost?
I grind and brew my own coffee, and to brew a pot with 3 cups of water costs me about 0.16 that gives me one giant cup of coffee and enough caffeine for my day.

I rollerbladed and played hockey last night, then played hockey again this morning. All good.
Then, I went through the Starbucks drive thru and the cashier accidentally dropped my gift card when she was handing it back to me. Trying to Cirque do Soleil myself out of my car to pick it up, I think I pulled every back muscle I have. Hooray!
I did get a free drink out of it, though. I didn't ask; they fling those coupons at you anytime anything doesn't go quite right.

I mostly go there for the breakfast sandwiches. Two sandwiches and a trenta iced tea were like $10. It's definitely not an everyday thing for me.

Bad storms came through here in the night (3:30 a.m.).

Friends' power went out at 3:30 a.m. At 3:45 there was a really loud clap of lightning or thunder that woke their toddler up and she was screaming in her room. b/c no power, her nightlight wasn't on -- for the first time. Mom went to check on her and Rory was saying "Mommy my eyes aren't working!"

Gotcha.
I never called you a liar, I said the story was bs. And in the technical sense, it is. So booya, my streak of never bring wrong still stands!

Tired again. I wish the game would've started at 8 instead of 9. But I have a three-day weekend, woohoo!(I'm taking Monday off).

Sigh. Kim Karstupidian and Kanye Ego West named their baby North West.

Nooooo. That's awful. Although, you knew it would be something completely douchy anyway.

I saw a puggle last night for the first time. Pug + beagle. VERY cute.
My friends have a puggle puppy. Ridiculously cute.

I'm not sure I could go with anything besides bulldogs after having Frenchies. They like to sleep as much as I do.

I saw that on the news. I didn't think much of them before. Now I think less of them.

So, I wonder what the middle name is. North East West?

What's the next kid's name going to be? Wild?

That assumes it will be from the same father. Since she had to hurry up and remember to get divorced from the husband she was married to when she got pregnant with this one, that is an open question.

Jess: I was up with loud/severe storms 3:30 to 4:30 this morning, so I turned on the TV to find out what was going on. After I got the weather info,they went back to their hollywood entertainment show. They were showing James Gandolfini (sp?) from "Inside the Actor's Studio." Very good interview. He talked about going to Rutgers and how his parents, especially his mom, ingrained in him that he was going to go to college no matter what.

He gave his parents all the credit for his success, since they worked so hard for their children.
He was a huge Rutgers supporter. He was at many of the football games.

They are adorable, but all of the ones that I have known had the worst traits of both breeds. My brother's was so untrainable that he finally had to find a new home for him (several reputable trainers all tried to work with him and they all recommended that the dog go to a home with no children because he was so strong-willed).

The divorce was finalized just this month, I think!

I like this idea. It's too late for me, but I hope they can get a product to market.
