Watching & Listening - Episode 1

So I figured I would put my new Macbook Pro to good use and take you along with me on a recent trip Starbucks. This first episode is my first foray into what quirky thoughts and observations I tend to make while just soaking in the atmosphere and drinking ridiculous amounts of coffee.

Hope you enjoy.....

Postscript: No baristas were harmed in the making of this video though this location kicked me and some friends out a year ago for trying to film an interview - so not cool. But haha the laugh is on them....they couldn't tell I was filming with my super stealthy Macbook. To them I just look like some crazy guy talking to his computer. I would have jumped in and helped the poor realtor had it turned violent - maybe. She was fairly annoying -I'm just saying. I think the gal that was being interviewed did a great job of listening as the guy droned on and on. Though she was polite her blow off reminded me of Kelly Preston in Jerry Maguire when she called Jerry a "Loser!" The guy who was staring at me knew he recognized me but wasn't sure from where - he read my book as it turns out. Hated the cover. And yes...ordering a Venti Hot Passion Tea, especially if the person behind the counter, always makes me feel like I am suggesting something lurid and dirty. I admit it....I've never grown up, I still think and act like I am ten!

Ripple On!!!

I loved this. I could feel the engaging energy you put out there to people. I would LOVE to talk with you at Starbucks in person some day. :-)
