The Coffee Song

Welp, I'm drinking coffee again! I realized that there's about 5 calories in each cup. Using Equal instead of sugar, and non-fat milk instead of Half & Half is also helpful. Mmm, coffee.

I'm currently dividing my Bucks time between three locations: my Bucks on Stapley and the US60, Southern and McClintock, and now Southern and Longmore (Adam's store). What can I say? I'm totally addicted!

To all my peeps in the Valley of the Sun: STAR 97.5 FM is the new jazz, oldies, blues and swing station. It's great. Spread the word.

On another random note, would you like to know what radio stations I listen to and in what order? 103.9 (non-corporate alternative radio), 101.5 (corporate alternative radio), 96.9 (they claim to be a mix of the 80's, 90's and today. But really they're most of today and U2. Haha), 97.5 (w00t), 99.9 (the Christmas station - during Christmas season), and 102.5 (country).

While listening to STAR 97.5 I heard a Frank Sinatra song that is really funny. Here's the lyrics, enjoy:

Way down among Brazilians
Coffee beans grow by the billions
So they've got to find those extra cups to fill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

You can't get cherry soda'Cause they've got to fill that quota
And the way things are I'll bet they never will
They've got a zillion tons of coffee in Brazil

No tea or tomato juice
You'll see no potato juice
The planters down in Santos all say no no no

The politician's daughter
Was accused of drinking water
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

You date a girl and find out laterShe smells just like a
Her perfume was made right on the grill
Why they could percolate the ocean in Brazil

And when their ham and eggs need savor
Coffee ketchup gives 'em flavor
Coffee pickles way outsell the dill
Why they put coffee in the coffee in Brazil

So your lead to the local color
Serving coffee with a cruller
Dunking doesn't take a lot of skill
They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

Who thinks it would be funny to hear this playing at Starbucks? =)

*Buzzed on a caffeinated high*

Glad to see you back to your usual caffeinated self!

Last night on Jeopardy, they had a question about who grows the most coffee beans. I knew it and started laguhing thinking about the song :)
