    Started Barista training this week, so yes, Tara... I'll be able to help you pick out some new drinks soon!

    In addition, some of you are aware of my mother's own perpetual medical problems. She was hospitalized this evening, and will probably be with them for a few days. If I'm cranky to anyone or not around, now you know!

    And knowing is half the battle!

    (....GI JOE!)

    -TJ [face_clown]

    P.S. And yes, I'm doing fine at the moment!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!

    I've gotten an update: Mom's at a Sutter Facility right now. I will try to see her sometime tomorrow or possibly sunday depending on how things go. Work's been alternating between grueling and mind numbingly boring (gee, so that's how you make regular coffee in a coffee maker? Zounds! Who knew?) As for drinks... bleh. I'm starting to have all our sample/training drinks coming out my pores. My schedule's going to be pretty anorexic in the hours department next week, so I should be around for next Saturday's meeting... that's when it is, right? Or is it the one after? I can never remember. 2nd Weekend... yes. That's it. I think.

    TJ + Life = [face_beatup]

    Glad things are getting better for your mom. It is a good facility to be at. :) A Barista.....who would have thunk. :) Just don't overdose on the caffeine practicing. Hey, you can help me figure out a drink to order when I have to go to starbucks with everyone, that DOESN'T have coffee in it. Have never been able to acquire a taste for it and am getting tired of the Chai Tea's. :) Something cold preferably.

    Don't know if you have heard since you missed the last meeting. We are new parents again. :( Actually have custody of granddaughter due to daughters extra curricular activities. So we are in regroup mode as haven't parented little ones for a bit. So Rogue 26.5 will be hanging out with us a lot.

    Immediate suggestions for the non coffee drinkers: try an iced 4 pump passion tea lemonade, they are delicious. Additionally, you might check out the strawberries and creme frappuccino blended creme or our vanilla bean frappuccino blended creme. The strawberries and creme is one of our most popular drinks for our non coffee drinkers.

    -TJ

    P.S. Coffee sampling sucks when you've got no palette to speak of... all tastes mostly the same to me. [face_plain]

    P.P.S. Mom's still at a Sutter Facility, probably until next week sometime.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I get tons of Starbucks gift cards but just go in and stare at the menu and order a Chai tea. This will be great. :)

    1. You can use the gift cards to buy mugs and stuff.

    2. The Caramel Frap is awesome! All that lovely crushed ice makes me think of blended alcholic drinks..ha ha

    Our "Learning Coach" would look at you funny and say "I'm sorry, we don't have a Caramel Frap... however, we DO have a Caramel Frappuccino Blended Coffee." Silly corporations and their trademarks. [face_money_eyes]

    First, of all, I want to let you know that your mom is also in my prayers. I'm sorry about here coming down ill. But it sounds like she's getting better and I wish her well yet.

    Second of all, it looks like you have a really neat job with all the free drink samples they're giving you! Don't worry about all coffee tasting the same; it sounds like they are training you to become a pro coffee coniessuer (pardon my French, literally! Or at least the spelling o it if I didn't get it right. LOL) You'll be able to distinguish the finest coffees in no time! :D .

    Congrads on your new job!
