Right now I am at Starbucks, sipping a grande blonde roast and nibbling on a warmed up butter croissant. The “Weekend Regulars” are here, very loudly discussing politics. They’re surprisingly liberal for a bunch of old white guys. I find them entertaining, but probably only because I agree with them…
While I have been sitting here, I’ve been periodically looking up from my Chromebook to see who has walked in the door. Only I’m constantly looking through my reading glasses, which means every face is a big blur. Just now somebody I know walked in, only I didn’t recognize her right away (because, blurry face), and I probably made eye contact with her through my glasses, but I’m not sure (because, blurry face). By the time I looked over my glasses to verify that she was who I thought she was, she had looked away. And now I feel super rude for not waving or, at the very least, smiling.
Oh, the joys of being socially awkward (and enough of a doofus to look at people through reading glasses)!
The one woman who occasionally joins the Weekend Regulars has arrived. She’s not as liberal as the men. It sounds like she’s been reading some sketchy stuff on the internet…
Ooh, the barista just came around with blueberry scone samples. I picked the right morning to be hanging out at Starbucks,
Maker's Market 2022 (2022) I'll be at Urban Sewciety in Westfield, NJ this Saturday (December 3rd) to participate in the annual Maker's Market! Will I see you there? Read on for instructions for ordering ahead, if you would like me to set something aside for you.
TWiP: Picture the Holidays, Take Three (2018) I have spent all year capturing my mornings, but I find it hard to be innovative when I spend most of my morning hours in the office, where I have very little control over lighting and atmosphere, and more importantly, where I have a job to do that does not involve photographing my breakfast. So, I've been feeling a bit uninspired with My Year of Mornings, which is why I jumped at the change to participate in Picture the Holidays again.
