Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk at The Embarcadero Peet's

Today is payday!!! Hooray! So before all my money has made its way to the nice folks at the student loan and credit card companies, I decided to treat myself to a stop at Peet's Coffee inside Embarcadero Station for a yummy cuppa joe.
Usually I drink the free coffee at my office, which actually isn't so bad; we have a sbux machine that brews cups to order, you can even get hot chocolate on demand. The thing that I'm not to keen on is the powdered creamer, or the nasty-ass hazelnut coffee-mate that everyone in the office seems to enjoy.
Anyhow, today I stopped at Peet's. I got a small coffee with room for cream. I got my coffee, walked over to the condiment station and proceeded to pour some cold white liquid into my cup. The top of the pitcher wasn't screwed on all the way and it plopped right into my morning nectar. Coffee splattered everywhere and I made a big fat mess. One Peet's employee started cleaning it up while another Peet's employee promptly handed me a brand new small coffee with room and said as he smiled and winked at me "I guess someone's out to get you." As I was cleaning myself off I chortled "Well, at least it's not Monday."

There was a man standing next to me that I hadn't even noticed until he said "That's a very positive thing to say, Ma'am. I run a positive thinking workshop and today I'm going to use you and this incident as an example of positive thought in one's life. Thank you, ma'am."

You're welcome, weird stranger. You're welcome.

Nice Pictures - Where'd you steal them from?

Some of the pictures in my blog were taken by a photographer called Julie Michele. Some of the pictures were either taken by me or someone I know. Some of the pictures were ripped right from the internet, mostly from google image searches from photographers to whom I may or may not give credit.

Rest assured I make no money from any of it.
