Lately, it seems like every time I go to a restaurant or coffeehouse, I sit with my right leg crossed over my left and before long (OK, maybe after about 30-45 minutes or longer), my right leg falls asleep. Sometimes, when I then attempt to stand, it's as if I were handicapped. Would it help if I were sitting on a cushion or something to make me sit higher off the ground? Or maybe it's useful negative reinforcement to prevent me from messing around on the Internet for hours on end as in days of yore...
Remembering one reason why coffeehouses are, counterintuitively, often far less comfortable in winter than in summer: big windows radiating cold into the interior! Pizza Shuttle's been seeing a lot of me lately...
My parents, in their frugality, have a burgeoning collection of hotel coffeemaker pods in their freezer. Today, while housesitting, I tried a few from Royal Cup Coffee. Though the pods were stale, I could tell that the coffee had at one time been really good (if that makes any sense). I'll have to order some fresh beans (and perhaps pods, if there is a reasonable expectation that they will be freshly ground when packed).
I had a fantastic time tonight at the Second Annual Roast Coffee Company Barista Jam! Because I won't be able to get in a substantial post tonight, I'll make an exception to my posting schedule and post about it tomorrow. Perhaps pictures will already be in circulation by then (unfortunately, I didn't take any).
Woodman's is seeking a Menomonee Falls location, according to this article. Though Woodman's is one of the search terms that lead people to this site most frequently--and on my one visit, I liked it--I just have absolutely no reason to go there. Sorry. As a bachelor and a light eater to boot, I don't buy enough groceries to justify driving any distance for them. I'm sure plenty of reviews are out there.
-For those who are visiting for the first time because of the Shepherd Express article, Welcome! For those who haven't seen it, the Shepherd article is available online here (link opens a PDF-type reader application). For those who were wondering, the picture was taken at Le Reve Cafe.
-I picked up a pound of Intelligentsia's Milwaukee Blend (which is their Miller's Blend, renamed) and look forward to cupping it in the morning.
