Really Good Coffee

I was a bad friend yesterday. Not only did I visit a coffee establishment that was not the one which supplies my favorite barista's paycheck, I also linked to it in my post's comments! Advertising for her store's competition is a traitor's behavior, and I am deeply sorry.

So (to make up for it)...if you want yummy coffee, you should go to Starbucks! Delicious beverages, higher quality, plus your support will help sherdeb to continue earning her paycheck, keeping a roof over her head, a boy, and a very cute dog. Hooray for Starbucks!

On the plus side, sherdeb is now inventing me a Starbucks version of the turtle mocha, without nuts, which I will enjoy just as soon as she finished up her manager training. Too cool. Now that's the sign of a good manager: being willing to invent a drink to convince you to return to her store.

Of course as I explained to hannunvaakuna and sherdeb over delicious Indian food last night: "sherdeb is much more important to me than Starbucks. Without her there, it's just not the same." I'm looking forward to her return soon.

Last night was great though; it's been way too long since I've hung out with my high school buds. It's also been way too long since I've had Indian food! The combination was perfect.

It was especially nice to be doing something fun since I was brutalized even more than usual at physical therapy yesterday. In trying to break up one of my adhesions, the PT who worked on my actually ended up rubbing the top off a patch of skin! I guess she was a little too over-enthusiastic. Owie.
