some of you may or may not have noticed that it is in fact december.

actually, matt taylor has yet to notice, because he is still sporting his trusty movember stache. i can't bring myself to tell him because, well, because i'm new here, and also because i don't think he would part with it anyways.

but, and so, it's obvious that as head of the mario kart family, matt actually needs to have a mustache and i think he's just finally realized this so that's okay.

and, also, his brother luigi has obviously also not realized that it's december, and this too is okay, because luigi is supposed to have a mustache as well.

so, actually, the whole movember thing was just a ruse for their true personalities to have an opportunity to come out. and for everyone's true mario personalities to come out, i've noticed.

i don't have a character yet because i haven't advanced to the next level. next month if i'm lucky.

but so in case you forgot again, it's december, so here's a list of reasonable things to do with all yr time:
1. skating (hot chocolate necessity both before and after, or risk losing the value of the full skating experience)
2. hang out with yr dog (always an option, but more so when winter is suddenly here and yr pet conveniently has more fur than you and is therefore a mobile blanket for yr personal cuddling enjoyment)
3. go sledding (enough said)
4. post on blogs, or better yet, make witty comments on my blog post
5. stuffing (the turkey and the stocking)
most importantly:
6. hang out with me at mercury and drink espresso, or cappucinos, or if you must, a latte or two. i'm accumulating points to cash in for my mario kart character.

Happy December to you all! With the holidays hovering over us, we scramble around trying to figure out what to present as a present. How 'bout a gift certificate for your favourite coffee shop? But wait... Hold on! In addition to the usual $5 and $10 Mercury Espresso Bar Gift Certificates, we'll be selling cerificates for our first in a series of Coffee Education and Cupping Classes. For $60 you can get that caffeine crazed friend or family member one of 10 spots open on Tuesday January 26, 2010 at 7pm. The course will include a journey that takes you from the cherry to the cup. We'll be discussing growing and harvesting, processing(and how each process is integral to the cup), and of course a tasting! We'll sample 6 coffees prepared in 3 different ways. Not to mention a few interesting tidbits along the way. Of course you'll also take some top notch coffee home with you as well. You can share your new found knowledge with anyone who'll listen. Come on down and let us know how many you want and we'll hook you up. Again, the date of the first class is Tuesday January 26, 2010 @ 7pm. We'll be doing a regular series of these classes and each time we'll focus on coffees that are in season at that time. Can't wait to see you there!
