I have got to say I love both Knight and Starbucks--and not just because I live in the Seattle area or my sister manages a Starbucks either. I have always LOVED coffee--both the idea of it as child in a Mormon household and the taste. My Mom would slip me Coffee Nip candies as a child all the time, which were my favorite. She claims and still claims to this day that it's not real coffee. Ahem...
Anyway, I have charming memories as a teenager with a love affair with coffee in a Mormon household. Mom, thankfully, never did let on that she knew I had a coffee maker brewing coffee in my closet. She didn't even comment on the gurgling of the cheap coffee maker burping. And she and I both loved Jamoca (again no coffee in there) Almond Fudge. Until my husband who works for a prominent ice cream company actually saw coffee ice cream being made with pure coffee extract, did I start to become a doubter myself.
So what's your drink? Mine, as the picture indicates, is a Venti Drip (No African roasts--only medium/full bodied/no acid like Italian Roast) with one to two shots espresso, room for cream, fake sugar, no whip. Yep, your run of the mill "Shot in the Dark." It works for me. I like the flavors of both brewed and espresso together--more complex if I have to use my snotty java aficionado cap.
I do admit though to drinking gads of Peppermint Mochas in December with disgusting amounts of pumpkin scones or Cranberry-Bliss bars. In summer, I am very partial to an extra strong Black Shaken Tea with two pumps of syrup-I am so over Frappuchinos. And the Green Tea Latte is perfect for spring. It even makes the crevices in your teeth a mossy green color just in time for St. Paddy's Day.
Yet, the best is my own freshly ground, home-brewed, double strength coffee with a shot of double strong espresso from my husband's Capresso. All that mixed with that wonderful invention-- the "non-fat half and half." Who knows what they put in that to make it the right viscosity and really, who cares. The coffee will kill you before the guar gum.

Princess Baby went to a Daddy-Daughter dance last week with CG. Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
They were so cute. She looked like a little princess. She came back with tales of limbos and cute heart shaped picture frames.
CG said that as soon as she found some friends, he was abandoned to hang out with the other dads.
She's growing up so fast...

Now this is entertainment! There's nothing like a good Bollywood(or in this case, Kollywood) video to take the bite out of a cold, dark, rainy, dreary Seattle afternoon:
PS Is it just me or is the male star of the video look like a George Michael Indian doppelganger?

Then there's this video:
So, back to the video, there is NO way he's wearing garments therefore, he must be inactive in the Mormon faith. Just my theory. Well that and assplants and breast augmentations seem a bit vain.
Still, Mormon or not, Dr. Rey is a hottie. Rawr! However, with a 88 lb. wife, he might think about augmenting her. I think I have a leg that weighs that much! (sigh!)

So busy ignoring this blog that I didn't even notice I picked up a reader from West Virginia.
Yep, ladies and gents, only nine more states to go:
- No children may attend school with their breath smelling of "wild onions."
- It is illegal to snooze on a train.
- Doctors and dentists may not place a woman under anesthesia unless a third person is present.
- According to the state constitution, it is unlawful for anyone to own a red or a black flag.
- If you wear a hat inside a theater, you may be fined.
- Roadkill may be taken home for supper.
- Whistling underwater is prohibited.
- One may not walk a lion, tiger or leopard, even on a leash.
- No member of the clergy is allowed to tell jokes or humorous stories from the pulpit during a church service.
- Firemen may not whistle or flirt at any woman passing a firehouse.
- It is legal to beat your wife so long as it is done in public on Sunday, on the courthouse steps.
It's a good thing I don't live in West Virgin-ey. After a few of my blogs today, I am sure my husband might like to go on a day trip to a court house.

My husband says he gets teased a lot from his liberal Bay Area co-workers for being red. Little do they know! I find out this weekend that he thought Obama was a Republican! 'Nuff said.
I'll be marking his ballot book from now on. What will be his response you all ask? He'll probably say, "What else is new?" He has used my ballot book in the past as a cheat sheet.
Yes, my political minions, I WILL rule the world one husband at a time. Yep, just like Hillary...
