Guess where I am? Did the subject line give it away? :p Yes, I'm at Starbucks. Believe it or not I was able to get a table! At first, I was thinking I was out of luck. I looked in and it didn't look like any seats were available at all. The comfy seats at the front were the only ones empty and those are not the best for writing on a laptop. At the old location, yes, but not here. I was happy to find a seat though and sat! I hadn't been here 10 minutes when someone left one of the little tables. I jumped up and claimed it before they got out the door. lol I am in it now. I've done today's NaNo writing and I've written pen pal letters!!!!! Yay! I've actually written my pen pal letters. Whoo Hoo! My hands are tired now, so you should be glad I'm even writing a blog post. LOL
It's been busy and slow in here tonight. After I moved to this table, most of the other ones cleared out except for my favorite one in the corner of course! LOL It stayed pretty empty for a while and now they are rolling along pretty well again. I am not sure how much longer I plan to stay. If I were at my favorite table, I'd probably stay longer, but I'm not, so there is that. The guy that was sitting here left a while ago, but I didn't even turn around to see if I could grab the table. I am pretty comfy here and this is my second favorite table. LOL The little tables are all along one wall, there is a long table to the right of them when you are sitting at one. If you sit at my favorite table, you have no one behind you or beside you. If you sit at this one, you have people behind you but no one beside you. The other two little tables have the long table next to them.
I just peeked, someone has claimed the other table. Oh well! :P I was able to get my hands on a bunch of Starbucks cards while I was here. I'm hoping I got the entire collection. Well, except for the multipacks. You can't get those without loading them. I got a bunch, so I'm hoping I have them all. If not, I can go and check on the site I use and see which ones I need so I'll be able to look for those. Hopefully, I have them all! That would be cool, cool, cool! :P
I'll take a picture of what I have when I get home and share it. For now, I'm going to sit here and enjoy being here for a bit longer before I pack up and head out. If it clears out some, I might stay a while longer and I might just head home. I have almost finished my drink and I am not planning on getting another one tonight. :P
I just know it was great being able to do NaNoWriMo from Starbucks again! I totally missed out last year and I didn't want that to happen again. :) . Now, I just have to decide what to fix for dinner when I get home and put away the clothes I washed yesterday. D'oh! Actually, not a D'oh, I knew when I washed them yesterday that it was so late that I'd put them away today. I was able to get some detergent yesterday after using the last drips and drops on my bed linen. I needed more detergent and I only had a dollar. I was tempted to go to the laundry and get one of those individual ones they sell. Then, I thought about the dollar stores. Dollar Tree would have a bottle for $1 but I was hoping I didn't have to drive over there. (at that point, I had planned to come here to write) . I went to Dollar General and found a regular size bottle of one of the few brands I use for $1. Score! I thought it had to be a mistake, but I checked before buying it and it was $1. I am totally broke so I was happy to find it so cheap! I love my dollar stores!
Ahh! I am home now. The internet and my MBP were not playing nicely together at Starbucks for some reason. Luckily I copied and pasted this huge post into Evernote just in case. Good thing I did because I had to restart everything and would have lost my post. Ahh! I am going to post this before anything else goes wrong. ;p
