Waking up in a strange bed with a Cinnabon

I woke up on the left side of a king size bed this morning. It wasn’t my bed, but I was blanketed in a thick, soft comforter, which felt wonderful. I looked around briefly. Wherever I was, the room seemed very nice. It was light outside.

As my other senses came to me, I realized that what woke me up was a strange woman standing on the right side of the bed, yelling at me. She wanted to know where I got the warm Cinnabon that was on the nightstand next to me. More accurately, she rather forcefully wanted to know if someone brought that for me, and if so, who.

Songs from the movie “Coffee Shop” (Laura Vandervoort)

When I watched the movie Coffee Shop I knew that Laura Vandervoort wasn’t singing the songs in the movie, and I assumed that the artist singing was Norah Jones, but it turns out that was wrong. The actual singer’s name is Mandi Mapes, and the two songs are called “Dance With Me” and “In Your Arms.” Videos for both of the Coffee Shop songs are shown below.

Okay ... the process of selling the business took a very unexpected turn today. David emailed me to see if we could meet somewhere, so we picked a lousy coffee shop that most people don't normally go to. When I got there David was joined by George and Cooper, our LLC Class B business partners.

Woke up four times this morning

One of the crazy things about having super-realistic lucid dreams goes like this:

Three times this morning I woke up, had a couple of cookies, made some coffee, and started doing things, only to realize each time that I was still asleep.

(The good news is that I had a lot of cookies, with no calories.)

Chock full o' Nuts

When I had a medical procedure done a couple of weeks ago, the person who stayed with me watched the movie The Bucket List while I slept after the procedure. That made me think of coffee, both the coffee that is, ahem, produced by the cats, and the “Chock full o’ Nuts” cans. I decided to see if the “Chock” coffee was a real thing, and indeed it is. I ordered some on Amazon, and I have to say, it is very good. You can make it as weak or as strong as you like, and it’s very mild either way.
