I experienced a very pungent bus ride this morning, so much so I feel like the smell is following me around all day. Not my preferred way to start the day. (It’s called speedstick, it’s not expensive!)
4 people called off today, god hates me, servers went down, power outage in london = I hate my job/life/mostly my job
upside: got to talk to ‘Danny’ from London. Not sure who the fuck Danny is but he sounded cute and had a British accent and he was saying computer-y things to me (boner party!)
I fucked up my ice coffee again today, I blame Danny
There’s this creepy guy name Rob who works in my office. I feel like he’s constantly undressing me with his eyes. I wonder if his wife knows he’s a homosexual.
Jon is being a really poor communicator right now, it’s kind of annoying. Even more reason to jump town for a couple of days. Can’t wait!
Pet Peeve: People that are dumb. It’s not my job to read you the documentation (step by step) over the phone. Take some initiative and learn something you dolt or better yet type your question into google like a normal person!
There are few feelings worse than the feeling you get when you ‘accidentally’ eat too much yogurt
Scissor Sisters Pandora station is hit or miss. Today it’s very hit.
Can’t wait to see Inception this week. Hopefully I don’t have to see it alone. I’ve been doing the one-man-movie-viewing too much lately. Occasionally, It’s really nice. When it happens all the time it’s really depressing.
Qdoba burritos make shitty days slightly less shitty. trust!
I’m bored with Pittsburgh and I’m looking to get away for a few days. I have Tuesday - Friday off this week. If you live less than 6 hours away from Pittsburgh, PA and you want a strange, sexy man to crash on your couch / entertain you all day then here’s what you need to do:
1) reply to this post
2) reblog this post
3) send me an e-mail with semi nude picture attached
Offer valid while supplies last. Limit one per household (not even sure what that means).
we’ve perfected cold-brewing in apt 828. i’m going to make myself an iced cafe au lait (but pausing to post this)
i use Community Coffee coffee + chickory, so it’s stronger. so after I cold brew, I make it with milk - 1/4cup coffee + 3/4cup skim milk over ice (add some chocolate syrup,…
You amaze me everyday. Seriously.
Now allow me to share with you my favorite iced coffee making technique:
I’m a french press whore (I have 4 of them now). The last one I bought is huge so I use a generous amount of coffee (I don’t even measure at this point). I use water that comes from the hot water spout on the shitty coffee maker at work. I’d say the water is about 150-180 degrees (but ideally you want it right before it starts to boil). I let it steep for 5-8 minutes and push the plunger down. I let it sit at room temperature for about a half hr and then I pop the whole thing into the freezer. In about an hour it’s ice cold. Pour over ice and enjoy. I usually don’t add milk or sweetener but you go right ahead.
scalable - I can make coffee as strong as I need / want on that day
taste’s delicious / isn’t watered down
don’t have to play mad scientist trying to separate the grounds
serving iced coffee from a frosted french press it the epitome of classiness and sophistication
It takes an hour and a half to enjoy
slight more acidic taste compared to cold brewing
literally drinking a big gulp worth of strong iced coffee every time I do this
clearing out real estate in the freezer isn’t always easy
I guess what I’m saying is buy a french press. ;-)
