Note to self

I just wanted a plain old coffee at McDonald's this morning, with half and half and sweet and low, but then I saw their McCafe ads and the Cappuccino was calling to me. I think it was the frothy milk.

Two dollars, forty three cents and probably nine thousand calories later, I really wish I had just gotten a plain old coffee.

The stuff at McDonald's is all made from powders. Got to Barnes&Noble, or Starbucks or Borders. Anywhere but MickyD's if you have a yen for that stuff. And I'm still firmly convinced that the best cup 'o Joe in the mornin' comes from Dunkin' Donuts.

I almost went to DD but didn't want little kid to start bitching about donuts. Their coffee is strong and good though. I normally make it at home but little kid threw my stack of coffee filters into the sink and soaked them. I only had $2 and change, so Starbucks felt outta my league ;-) But yeah, I learned my lesson. McDonalds was a bad choice.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I recently read an article and based only on blind taste tests... McDonald's actually came out near the top or at the top in a lot of categories. This was with coffee "experts" or whatever you call them.

I'll take my Pumpkin Spice latte from Beaners over anything though.

Ugh - I did the same thing last week! Saw the ad and decided to treat myself. After scrounging up car change, I took 2 sips and left it sitting on my desk for the rest of the day. It tasted burnt and just gross!

We always use paper towels in the coffee pot when we run out of filters. That might save you a trip to McD's next time... that is of course if little kid hasn't already tried to shove your roll of paper towels down the toilet or some other much more clever thing that he could assuredly think of to do.

My business partner was just bitchin' last week about how pissed she was that she wasted her $ at Mickey D's on the same thing!

Lucky for me I don't drink coffee. But a large diet coke usually hits the spot.
