Del and coffee / simple pleasures / tomb raiders!


went out with my beloved jedibubbles -- she was sweet enought to take me card-shopping, as I had just realized how close Father's day was. We giggled over the funny ones, inspiring a few 'weirded out!' looks. Simple pleasures. So many people are used to the idea that something has to cost money to be worthwhile... and for some reason it seems to be taboo to express joy or laughter in public. Shock! We don't tone our laughter down to save people from being scandalized. *sniffs haughtily*

Odd how that went all pedantic. Anyway, we went from Wal-Mart to a used media store (music and movies) and I bought both Tomb Raiders for $6 each! Yay me! I also saw Taking Lives for $8, but I haven't seen it and I might hate it, so I didn't buy it. I'll rent it first.

And then to Starbucks for a coffee for me and a hot chocolate for Del. Silly girl doesn't like coffee! (the fact that we remain friends despite that fact is a testament to my open-minded acceptance of differences, hee hee) It's okay though -- she's so hyper that if she ever consumed my typical triple-venti-black-and-white-mocha-with-a-shot-of-cinnamon, she'd explode. Or create a new world wonder in 15 minutes than makes all the old ones absolutely prosaic. Or just escape the boundaries of our 3D world and start consciously living in all 13 dimensions. Or all of those simultaneously. So it's a good thing she doesn't like coffee.

I adore her. ;-)

Hi, I couldn't find your email so I'm just leaving my message here. Thank you for your comment on my bracelets. I also browsed through your own creations and just wanted to say that they are all very beautiful and so elegant! Keep up the good work. Good bye. =)

*huggles massively* I loffs my Bel!

And I could use your triple-bitter-ground-beans-distilled-with-water thingie right now though. Ugh. I have GOT to stop sewing on the floor, esp. for 10 hours at a shot...

poor Del, reduced to wanting the mystical liquid...

It's always good to have an awesome friend! And about the laughing in public thing, I can't believe how uptight people can be!
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I know! Actually it's any public display of emotion, really -- what is it with our society having a robotic ideal?

I'm glad you have a friend like her! What a blessing.
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
She SO is. ;-)

mmm, cinnamon. i love cinnamon in my coffee so darned much, and we have SO MUCH of it in the house. i'm sure that andrea hates me because whenever i get up first and make the coffee, i put cinnamon in the coffee filter along with the coffee (if you put it in the coffee after it's brewed, it gets all gross and coagulated... bleck. i don't like lumpy coffee. not limpy coffee, either, which is what i typed first. i only like to *chew* my coffee if it's because it's *that* strong and i had no sleep the night before...) it's almost become a silent little race between her and i, who can get up and make the coffee first.

and because she hates it so much, i shall stop, i suppose. i can survive w/o it. funny that i live with her, and it took reading a comment from you to realize how much she hates cinnamon in her coffee ;)

boy, has this response gone off on a tangent!

i'm all about showing unbridled joy and gaffawing laughter in public, too, if that's what the event calls for. life is too short to be held back by something so silly.

I KNOW! I totally agree.

And let me introduce you to my favorite thing: http://www.melitta.com/cgi-bin/sgin0101.exe?UID=2005062016152604&T1=64+0008

Buy one, and buy the Melitta filters, and not only will you not have to clean out the spilled grinds from the coffeemaker because the cinnamon clogged it up, but you can have a cup of 'instant' coffee that's actually real coffee. I LOVE it. They have bigger versions too, if you must have more than one cup per morning. ;-)

wow, freaking BRILLIANT!! it makes me almost wish i drank coffee again!!!

I imagine you could use it with loose tea leaves also -- just dump the tea leaves in the water, let it sit a few minutes, then use the filter-cone-thing to strain out the leaves. It'd work nicely!

yanno, i bought a tea ball quite awhile ago, and have never seen it since. i'll bet it's somewhere in the black hole of my bedroom. i really need to get organized and need to declutter!
