Apparently, my attempts in July to renew my domain and URL failed. Oh well. It’s just about as bad as the fact that someone already registered RyanWillbur.com… I really am curious as to what Julie Hursh has planned with it. Anyway, This may leada to a redoing of the blog. We’ll see. Anywho, enjoy ghostcoffee.net you douches in Indonesia!
What really has been boggling my mind lately is not domain name data and the like. I just have one simple question, when are the men in the Silverlake/Echo Park neighborhood of LA going to ‘man-up’? What I’m noticing is not even something neighborhood specific, but moreover something I’ve seen in many coffee bars. I’m talking about when the burly looking dude sporting a hard hat walks in and orders a single, sixteen ounce, nonfat, no foam, sugarfree creme de menthe, and sugar free white mocha. Yesterday, in my line I had three dudes, in my que was three mochas (two nonfat). Then, some big athletic dude who looked like he could easily kick my ass walked in… and then asked if we had any blended drinks.
Interesting is the contrast of all the beautiful, 30-something women who come in seeking a cappuccino or a machiatto. I’m amazed at the number of women looking for espressos and asking about what kind of coffees were serving on our Clover that day. Now, either they are catching onto what it takes to get attention from Devin Pedde, or maybe all these women are secretly super tasters and their palates are sensitive to sugary, milky drinks.
Regardless, I can’t help but wonder how such orders would sound to a woman. She sees some attractive looking dude who appears to have an idea of what is going on in the world. He gives off an air of dignity and professionalism… and then he orders a drink similar to what I would hear when I was serving the soccer moms of the suburbs.
So to all the men who enter our store in Silverlake, the next time you are thinking about hitting on the fairly attractive screen-play writer who is in line behind you, think twice before ordering that latte and asking for half the espresso and non fat milk.
