In a previous post on April 10th, 2007 (http://blogs.technet.com/haroldwong/archive/2007/04/10/coffee-my-addiction.aspx), I talked about my coffee addiction. In that same post, I commented that I was pretty much on the road the entire month of February and March and then posed the following question to all who read it:
Any guesses on what the number (how much I spent in February and March on Starbucks) came out to be?
First, Thank you to all who participated in this thread!!! I got some great recommendations on coffee places to try in Colorado Springs, Denver and the Minneapolis area. You can bet I will be taking Michael and David up on their offer the next time I’m in the Springs and Denver (June 21st) as well as purchasing some coffee beans from paradiseroasters.com (recommendation from Bob via email).
There were some good guesses and there were a few that were close. So, without further ado (sp??), here’s how much I spent ……………………….
Three Hundred and Thirty Seven Dollars (rounded up to the nearest dollar)! Yep, you read it correctly, that was $337! The “winner” without going over (kinda like Price Is Right) is Patrick Hoban!
I just now decided that Patrick should get a little prize from me for winning. So, Patrick, if you are interested and don’t mind sharing a shipping address with me, I will ship you a little something. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your shipping address and I will get a little something out to you when I return from Billings, MT later this week. I’m sure I’m breaking a few “rules” by doing this, but that’s okay, right???
PS: Jeffrey, long time no hear. Drop me an email when you get a chance.
