I don't NEED a morning coffee, so I don't always get something, I sure as hell don't free up time to make it at home (in the morning) and if I need it but cannot get it anywhere I get some sort of concoction from the (free) dispenser at work.
My country is quite the coffee drinking country but for some reason we don't have many true coffee outlets. We do have many coffeeshops though Sure, there is the McDonalds and such, and you can get coffee at any restaurant, bar, etc. But there is no Starbucks or anything like it. You might call that a good thing, but I like them big (vende?) cappuccinos.
There is one place though that I drop by on my way to work when I just happen to start later than usual. They have standard coffee/cappaccino/espresso, and 3 special types (caramel cappucino..hmm)
Gotta get my coffee at home from a pot, and it has to be set on a timer to be ready when I get out of bed. I am absolutely useless without at least a couple swallows of caffeine in the morning, I mean I can't even talk or see straight. After my morning cup though, I usually don't drink anymore coffee during the day.
I never really liked perk coffee. I'll take my instant anyday. I drink instant at home. But...when I head to work, I'll go to the local donut store (that's not called Timmy's) for my morning java. Elsewise, there's a McDonalds in the store where I work, and they see me about twice a day.
I get free coffee in our lunchroom, but it's disgusting.
Here, look at the monkey! Look at the silly monkey!
I work third shift, so my "morning" coffee is at 5pm. I have the reheated Maxwell House Master Blend that my beau made when he got up in the actual morning. You would think it would taste lousy, but actually it is not bad at all. If I need an extra fix of caffeine on my way to work I'll stop at one of the ten million Dunkin' Donuts I pass and pick up a Vanilla Spice coffee. I think it is just half vanilla flavor and half cinnamon flavor- but man is it tasty!
Just finished reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (by Michael Chabon) and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas while on vacation. I just grabbed Chabon's first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, since I loved Kavalier & Clay so much.
