Shaking up Monday

In the interest of shaking up my routine, hoping to try a couple of new coffee shops this week. This morning's stop is the new Stumptown Coffee on 12th. The name rang a bell from jasonmonster and scillymonster's past mentions. The coffee's good (I'm no connoisseur, so coffee is usually just classified as "good" and "not good" in my world—it's simpler), but the layout isn't very friendly to my kind of coffee time—it seems to be set up more for conversation than for laptop work. An understandable choice, just one that's less desirable for me. Just moved back to the coffee bar to get my laptop off my lap (yes, I'm being difficult). The windows here look straight into Seattle University's Xavier Hall, which is weird on a few levels.

Trying to focus up for the day/week ahead. Think I can potentially knock out a lot of work today, but not much will break if I don't (it'd just be nice to have the list whittled down). It's a crapshoot determining my priorities without the pressure of urgency—sometimes it's the absolute best, other times I don't get started because I have trouble deciding where to begin.

Scripture reading affected me this morning, which is very welcome. Hopefully I'll have/make time to write on it soon.


I had heard they were opening one up there. I'm glad you tried it... you know, the Stumptowns (all 3) in Portland, I would never choose for work environment. They are clearly not meant for that.

Stumptown runs a close second to Victrola for title of "Best Coffee Jason's Ever Had".

I'm a dope. I meant to use this icon. For what it's worth.

Re: wrong icon

That title is quite an honor!

Yeah, I like to be in public places and ignore all the people in favor of all the virtual people in my computer. It's the pinnacle of paradoxical antisocial behavior.

I'm not big into coffee. Our church has a coffee house that we patron every Sunday before the service starts. I always get the same thing, coffee wise. I get a turtle mocha, ALWAYS! If I'm not in a coffee mood they have fantastic Italian sodas that rock, too.

You sound like me when there are lots of projects going on at home. I just can't get motivated when there are too many things going on. At work I have no choice, I have to prioritize my patients and go with most sickest to least. Sometimes, the call lights win out. The call light inventor was evil...
I love coffee; I'm just pretty binary about it (either I like it or I don't). Actually, I'm that way about a lot of things I like—beer, wine, music, etc. Lots of people enjoy navigating all the little distinctions; I just like what I like.
