Friday 5 dump....


1.) My Next Challenge.....





2.) Ch..ch...check out my melody....




-Want a little "bizkit" this weekend? Only cool kidz click on the "bizkit."



3.) I still love the look and feel of a $1.67 medal hanging in my room....





4.) Starbucks Instant Coffee



-So Starbucks rolled out their new instant coffee this past week. I gotta a nice connection with the Starbucks people (SIL works there) and she hands me these "samples" and says, "give it a try."

-Let me start by saying I'm a serious coffee snob. Nothing but the best beans cross these lips. I only like freshly ground beans before every cup, and I won't even attempt to drink the likes of Folgers, Maxwell House, or Chock-full-of-shiz.....

-So I'm driving home from my 6am spin class and want to have another cup, alas the hubs drank all the french press Starbucks. I'm feeling lazy and don't want to clean the beaker like device. "Wait, I've got those samples of Starbucks coffee!" Dayum...Shizam.....let me give it a go go....

-Honestly, Seriously, No Joke, it's pretty darn close to the real deal. Now, am I going to pay a staggering $2.95 for three little packages? Uh, hell to the no! I'll keep getting my stash from my dealer. Though, for a treat I'd grab it and feel like I was getting a good cup of coffee.

-I'll stick with grinding my beans and frenching my press but If I need a quickie-I WILL grab my new instant friend.


5.) Sooooooo Excited.....


-My peeps and I will be smiling, riding, & getting dirty next weekend. I can't wait to dance, eat, & get a sore bottom with them. Come join us for a little ride through the flat roads of Maryland-I might even give you crabs! ;)

I am intrigued by Starbucks instant coffee, especially since you gave such high marks.

What a marketing program. I said when Starbucks first came out, no way people will pay $2 for a cup of coffee. And I was right, they pay $4.

Now we have instant Starbucks. They have gone into the market that they kicked the butts of, instant coffee. I bet its the same price as Folgers too, isn't it?

I'm so not a coffee snob - Foldgers, right now. Enjoy your ride (I'm quite jealous). It'll be great, I'm sure. Sore buns and all, lots of lube.

Ah yes, the elusive Jedi Plank. Just use the force, and you've got that one mastered.

I just got to where I can stand the taste of ANY coffee in the last year or so. My taste in beans is (to say the least) plebeian.

"plebeian"

Love it!
