Portrait of a Sunday
I went to Church at First Church. I introduced my good friend Jon to my girlfriend. It was a great sermon. I went to Scott and Erica’s to chat about jobs with Scott while Erica and Heather talked in the house. We went to Middletown for beads, and here is the interesting story... We walked around and went to Javapalooza. After deciding on our drinks, which t ook a long time because the menu is a bit different, I walked over to the pick up while Heath went to get straws. An older man, say late 30's, looked at me for a few seconds and as I made eye contact asked me “So, are you a doctor?” You see, I was wearing my Dr. Pepper T-shirt. I made a few friendly comments, one of which was "I'm not a doctor" and another was a question if he was. He said he was a photographer. Heather scooted up to me and tucked in to make sure he could see her. He didn't even look at her but instead focused squarely on me. I remarked on how Heather is an artist and I'm a physicist. I announced her by name for some reason so to even it out I said goodbye by introducing myself. He stood to shake my hand and I said nice to meet him. We speculated that he may have been hitting on me and that he may have been gay if, in fact, that was what he was doing.itting on me. I never know how to react in those situations. Was he really flirting with me or were his actions just creating a friendly but awkward atmosphere causing me to jump to this false conclusion? When we were walking out and I said how I am a Doctor...or maybe it was Heather... but it arose that I am Dr. Adventure, bringing fun and excitment to all those in need.
And think, we just went out for beads. Getting hit on was an added bonus. I dont even remember his name. But I'm glad he didnt ask me for my number.

Bold Coffee: Gold Coast

Week #7 Gold Coast Blend
This is our biggest, boldest blend – a coffee with "big shoulders".
The source of Gold Coast Blend's bigness is a secret recipe of Latin America, Asia/Pacific and dark roast coffees. Created to celebrate the big city of Chicago, the interplay of these very different coffees weaves a deep and densely rich, sophisticated taste. A style all it's own, this coffee is truly one in a million.
I like knowing Starbucks is human too. By my account, that tag line has a typo at the end-"big shoulders". I may need to review my punctuation rules regarding quotes and punctuation inside or outside the end quote, but for now I am comforted to know that nobody-even Starbucks-is perfect.

Well, with my spring finals coming up, I needed a strong coffee! This one was definitely strong enough to keep me studying. I needed some caffeine to keep my eyes on the prize. But the prize this year was a few papers, two finals, and a bunch of reading. I had this coffe…

Connecticut Remembers Newtown

I received this email earlier in the week:

Connecticut Remembers Newtown this Friday

On Friday December 21st at 9:30am Gov. Malloy has asked us to offer a moment of silence in memory of our Newtown, Connecticut neighbors who died tragically last week. We hope you will join us and all of Connecticut in this solemn observance.

I think this was a very good reminder. The link takes you right to a pdf of the proclamation that describes the significance of remembering the events at Sandy Hook Elementary.

It's hard to think that this horrific shooting happened just a week ago. Even harder, is to think I was just blogging about "Change." As information about the shooting came trickling in via various sources of news, it's hardly the time for blogging. But little did I expect how life would change for those families. Horrible. How life could change for my family. The impact of this trauma has left it's mark…
