My new coffee cup

Got a new coffee cup at Disneyland.  Actually 'coffee pot' would be more accurate.  That sucker holds half a pot of caffeine in it, and yes, I have actually gone back for seconds... I'm that bad!  Its got Tigger on it and says something about a caffeine overload on the inside.  Yep, that explains Tiggers bouncing and trouncing. 

Read a story this morning about some guy who is on a mission to visit EVERY Starbucks Coffee Store/Cafe in the world.  Now I like coffee, but not that much!  And Starbucks isn't 'real' coffee (sorry BigRed...), it specializes in 'foofy' coffee like lattes and cappucino.  This guy is just going in, grabbing half a cup of regular coffee and off he goes.  Apparently he's starting to dislike the taste of coffee.  (I drink on the average 4 cups a day, or 8 half cups... this would not be an issue with me)  So why do it?  Just to say he did?  Oh well, if that is the path he has chosen for his life, more power to him.  If I had that kind of time on my hand to waste in frivelous persuit of some wacky record I would probably like to sip a glass of wine from every winery in the world, or get a lap dance from every Chippendale dancer, or shake the hands of every world leader (not really, I just put that in just incase my parents read this).  Or maybe to sail on every ocean, or watch a sunrise and sunset from every country in the world... that would be cool.  But to go to every Starbucks just to drink half a cup of coffee that he doesn't even like any more?  That is just such a tragic waste of time.... and coffee!

I think I's like that coffee cup. I collect Tigger stuff. I have several coffee cups with him on them.
You are so right. What a waste of time and coffee.
Have a great day.

I'm with Gator! The winery Idea sounds good! The Chip -n-Dales Idea sounds even better! ; )

Finally, a coffee "cup" I can really get on board with :-) Forget the wimpy styrofoam things (yeah I said it) As for Starbucks not being real coffee...well, you're kind of right but I'll keep comin' back for more, foofy or not :-D

Ah, well, to each his own.  Some take a strange path to enlightenment...rofl...mine would be to ride one of every breed of horse, I think. I don't get to spend enough time with horses.
