name that coffee shop:

It's 25 thousand degrees out (roughly... maybe more like 95, but I don't do well with heat so it's hard to tell) but I'm inside, cozying up by a roaring ("roaring") fire, drinking my iced mocha across from a giant stuffed bear head...

Yeah, I'm at Caribou, a little slice of Alaska here in our nation's capital. I live two blocks from one. And three blocks from another. And five blocks from another. I'm in that kind of neighborhood where you don't have to worry, because you're never more than a couple blocks from a Caribou Coffee. (And then there's the Starbucks! They're really everywhere!)


I had a real reason for this post but I forgot it.

Oh! I know. I was going to say that I'm starting to remember how very much I love living in a city with lots of fun different international food options. Yesterday my office took me out to a nice Indian place for lunch, and it was wonderful, really, just wonderful. Also, there's an Indian food chain, I guess it's a chain, in DC (and maybe other places, who knows, not me) called "Naan and Beyond" and I totally want to eat there too, because what a name!


In other news, my little sister Caitie, who is awesome, just wrote me a birthday post. Tomorrow is my birthday and this morning I bought myself a party dress, and then I went and bought myself party earings from H&M, which I am totally in love with. So I have a whole party outfit. I might even wear it!

(This is a picture of Caitie in her party outfit, which includes a beret, if you hadn't noticed. She got it in France when we went there this summer. Isn't she cute? She'd been on the beach all day... with topless old ladies... ah, the memories... she will maybe hate me for posting this picture on the internet, but I just can't help myself.)

So get out your party dress (and/or your H&M earings, your beret, etc.) and wear it around the house a little today - it's that time of year, after all, Shana's birthday. Party dresses all around. Feels good, doesn't it?

Ok. That's all.
