Oh yes. Today is icky, indeed. Its rainy and chilly here. Yuck. The only good thing about the dreary-grey of today is that it inspired me to drink hot coffee, instead of iced. I mean, I usually drink at least two cups of hot coffee in the morning (at home), but if I'm out-and-about (mostly at school), I prefer iced coffe. My 'usual' is "tall-iced-caffe-mocha-with-soy" at Starbucks. Mmmm. But today, my sister and I met up in the little coffee shop on campus where I normally sit between classes (if you've been reading my blog for a while, you've probably read countless blog entries composed in, or composed about, the little coffee shop).
Last year the coffee shop was called Ritazza, and I don't remember what brand of coffee they served, but it wasn't especially great. This year, they've changed it up a bit, and now its a Seattle's Best. So now, we have both a Starbucks AND a Seattle's Best on campus. Sweetness.
Anyway, we both decided it would be a good day to have a nice, hot cup o' joe, rather than iced as per normal. 1) The coffee was really good! 2) It was CHEAP (which consequently raises its status from 'good' to GREAT!). It was only $1.29 for a 'small', which was like a Starbuck's 'tall'. That's pretty good, in my book. So now I'm nice and toasty, my tummy is full (at least for now... I find since going Vegan that I need to eat about every 2 hours, or I go into hibernate-mode), I'm energized, and I spent less than $1.50. Awesome.
Oh yeah, and the little lunch-lady who, like, loves me is just as cute as ever. I don't think I've blogged about her before... her name is Linda, and she just loves me. She kind of 'adopted' me last year, probably because of how much time I spent in the CUB last year, and because I eat wraps, which she makes, every Tuesday and Thursday. She was dismayed on Tuesday when I told her I would no longer be having cheese on my wraps... just lettuce and tomato for me, thanks. She was like, "Oh my! What am I going to do with you?" Then aside, to my sister, "I try to take care of her, you know!" She is so adorable! Haha! Plus today she told me she really likes my haircut, and it makes me look YOUNGER....she guessed I was about 25, so she wasn't really too far off. Hahaha.
