Observations from the coffee shop
« on: June 16, 2008, 07:11:13 pm »
I'm in the coffee shop right now (some of you know the one), and I imagine a number of you also frequent places of caffeinated beverage consumption (no, I'm not talking about RedBull).  Every time you go in, take a look around you and let the rest of us know what's going on.  It doesn't even have to be interesting (see example below).

Right now the guy at the next table keeps looking over at me like I shouldn't be sitting here.  I think he's peeved that I'm sitting in a booth and he has to sit at a tiny round table.  He's also drinking decaf.
JUST EXTRA POLISH. I DO SOME WORK WITH EXCELL SO I KEEP THE CAPS LOCK ON :-P

You can still go to the coffee shop if you don't drink coffee!

Right now I'm listening to what must be an admissions person talking to a kid and his dad about coming to UND.  It's funny because the dad keeps asking all the hard questions about the sioux name and the swastika thing and something about independent media on campus! :lol:

Turns out the kid's only a junior in hs.  So the guy is telling him to keep his gpa up.

Must have made an appointment.  Maybe UND really wants this kid.  Dunno why they are meeting at the coffee shop.

Yeah, they had a random meeting.  I didn't catch where the kid was from, somewhere in MN.

There is a random assortment of people here now, nobody that I would call a regular.  Some college kids I guess, working on a project.  It's also raining outside.

I was in a restaurant today and I observed some lady sitting at a large table all by herself, and it was very busy.

...maybe this would be better listed under the pet peeve topic.

She had to make a spot for her ego.

Hopefully not.  I try to be less than creepy most of the time.

Recently I saw some scruffy guy ride up on a green bike.  Aren't those supposed to stay on campus and is that program still running?
