HNT - Coffee

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Wednesday nights have become a bit sacred to me. Cam is active in a youth group that meets from 6:00PM until 8:30PM. It's a bit of a drive for us (as is everything when you live in the puckies) so rather than drive home, I visit the local Starbucks, have a Venti Skinny Vanilla Latte, no foam, 2 extra shots, log on to the free wi-fi, and spend a little quality time with Rhonda. It's relaxing and I really look forward to it!

Coffee has two virtues: it is wet and warm.
~Dutch Proverb


Don't those silly Dutch know you are supposed to add cream to cool it down? *CLICK*

I can only imagine...what the baristas were thinking with that click through. :)

I love an indulgent cup of coffee, and you look so peaceful here.

Osbasso said...

Ooh, what a great shot! Was that your first attempt??

You do seem to have a bit of a problem with things dripping down your chest, don't you?

Lilly said...

And that is why I'll never go to Starbucks.

Cuz they don't have "columbian, medium-light roast, light n sweet with Coffeemate french vanilla creamer"
:P

that and i'd forget the first 4 adjective by the time i got to the end, end up repeating them, and get it alll sorts of fucked up.

Elle said...

Sounds lovely. But my favorite coffee spot is Boy Toy's couch, where I generally snuggle when I get up in the morning while he makes me one of his awesome three layers coffers. Yum. With mapple syrup in it. :D

Damn, now I want one!

And it's a fabulous picture, by the way :)

Vixen said...

LOL at Ms. I.... Silly her, as IF the Baristas *would* have issues with that?! Pffbbtt! ;)

I *ADORE* Starbucks....YUMMY.

:)

Jay said...

Your Starbucks has FREE wi-fi? Those bastards charge around here.

Oh uh .. love the pic! ;-)

Diana said...

I love cream in my coffee. Yours looks delicious.

Average Chick said...

Coffee is love in a cup to me....

And a little cream is better ;)

HHNT!

Matt-Man said...

I love it when you drip. Cheers Dana!!

Anonymous said...

Warm and wet are surely virtuous....

excellent drippage!

Evening said...

Very cool shot, you are so artistic and your timing was incredible. I love the first shot too, cool lighting. You have a very creative side Dana.
HHNT.

katherine. said...

you ought to see what we do at Peets!


well done.

Adam Apple said...

You just can't beat a good cup of coffee. Coffee is my favourite drink.

I love these HNT's where you play around with food. I might have to stop by and see where this fits on your 'normal meter'.

Happy HNT!

Amorous Rocker said...

I love a good cup of coffee. It's almost midnight here and your picture makes me want to head into the kitchen and make a nice cup. *sigh*

You look lovely, as always and the click is great! ;)

Happy HNT!

I Smile 2 Much said...

Mmmmmmm. Omyhell. You've just made crave Starbucks even more than I already do. Yum. Yum. And Yum :) *smiles*

I'm a coffee& lotsa cream whore and I'm brave enough to admit that after seeing this. :)

You & your drink look delicious. I luv your pics & look forward to 'em every week ;)

*smiles*

An Artist Exposed said...

I love the pic of you with the coffee. When work is going no-where, I take my sketchbook to a coffee shop, order a bucket of latte and inspiration usually comes.

captain corky said...

Very nice! I always like to add lots of cream to... coffee. ;)

Anonymous said...

I am not one to use cream that much, but when it is served that way, oh so delicious.

Nicey said...

Nice one can I have a extra shot in mine please !!

Dana said...

Ms. I, there is this one, really ummm ... HOT barista who I really wanted to have help me!

Os, I just can't help myself! Something happens when I get nekkid with food - I just want to feel it!

Lilly, I always give my order backwards just so that I can watch them roll their eyes and repeat it back in the correct order!

Dana said...

Elle, in my home, I bring the coffee to husband and place it on his nightstand as his "alarm clock"

Vixen, the Starbucks that I visit is the one closest to my house ... and it's a 30 minute drive!

Jay, as long as you have a Starbucks Card with at least $5 on it, you get 2 hours free!

Dana said...

Diana, and it's French Vanilla!

Average Chick, I'm addicted - I confess!

Matt-Man, who'd have thunk that a drip could be good?

Dana said...

Sage, drip ... drip ...

Evening, I like to have fun with HNT!

~c, I'm drinking a cup now!

Turnbaby said...

Good to the last drop;-)

Dana said...

13messages, some times I get a bit serious, but usually I just like to have fun!

Kat, *gigglesnort*

Adam Apple, on my normal meter? You aren't going to make me calibrate it before you stop by, are you?

Dana said...

Amorous, I can drink coffee any time of the day or night. It's that headache that I get from a lack of caffeine that concerns me!

I Smile, thank you so much!!

Artist, I had a blueberry scone with that Latte - it was yummy and inspirational!

Dana said...

Corky, why do I think you might not be talking about French Vanilla cream??

Kannon7, they say that presentation is everything!

Nicey, of course - I aim to please!

Naughty-I said...

I'm not much of a coffee drinker...I like hot chocolate. Your click through is nice...."add cream" I like it!

HHNT

tt said...

You got the 'droplets'???? that's a great camera and Photographer!! You're such the Hussy...I love you to pieces!

Jennybean said...

Glad you were able to indulge...

HHNT!

Jormengrund said...

Coffee.. There's something I miss.

Honestly, the days when I was a contractor were the last days that I had REALLY good morning coffee, but only when they cut me a small slice out of the pot!

Great pic Dana!

HHNT!

Anonymous said...

I'll have it just as it is, but with cream.

Superb shot! :-)

Real Live Lesbian said...

Didn't cool me down a damn bit! ;)

Anonymous said...

Great shots.

Starbucks coffee makes my stomach hurt. The only way I can drink it is if it's drowned in milk. ;)

P. and S. said...

The Dutch have been known to be silly on several occasions.

Great pics!

Hetero-Sapphic said...

very nice shot!! ;)

HHNT!

garbonzo said...

Mmmm. Now THAT's how to take your coffee!

Anonymous said...

Cool picture. This is my first time reading your blog. Keep up the good writing and humor. I love your perspective!

Cheers, Sugar

buffalodick said...

Most Dutch around here load their coffee with cream and sugar! Same or worse with tea..

Karen said...

I was totally scared you were going to get naked in Starbucks! Whew. :)

Flyinfox_SATX said...

Sweet! Literally! It would be so nice to have you with coffee and cream....er, I mean to have coffee and cream with you....er, you know what I mean!


Happy HNT

That click-thru is beyond great, love it!

HHNT!!

Dana said...

Turnbaby, me and Folgers!

Naughty-I, Starbucks does hot chocolate quite well too!

tt, hussy? I think that's the best compliment I've had all day!

Dana said...

Jennybean, indulgence is my middle name ... or maybe my first name!

Jormengrund, just don't forget the cream!

not2shy, the coffee??

Dana said...

RLL, it should have 'cause it was REALLY cold!

FF, I think I've built up a tolerance for the acidity in the coffee - I've been drinking it almost as long as you've been alive *wink*

P & S, I like their tulips, but they need to be a bit more practical!

Dana said...

Hetero-Sapphic, thank you!

garbonzo, gives the phrase "coffe, tea or me?" a whole new light, doesn't it?

S Vixen, thank you! Please come back!

Dana said...

Buff, I never did quite get the milk in tea concept ... and it just wouldn't photograph well either.

Karen, it's bad enough that I was cropping the cream pics while at Starbucks. I think I had better get one of those privacy screens!

Flyinfox, I know what you mean ... you like your coffee with a little cream!

Bina said...

Holy Moly girl! That is a GREAT shot!

Leighann said...

the puckies? *giggle*

Mike said...

Me likes very much! But you seem tohave spiled the cream, may i lick up off you? ;)
A very HHNT

Pronto said...

i like it,

i like it a latte

hhnt!

Biscuit said...

I haven't read through the other comments. Has anyone else offered to help you clean that up?? *drooling*

You named your laptop...missed that. I'm so attached to mine, it should have a name as well.

d2b said...

*hahaha* You do have a habit to soil with food and drinks and I'm very happy you share that with us instead of wearing bib *lol*

Happy HNT!!!

Nolens Volens said...

Ohh la la! The added benefit of having out at Starbucks is almost 3 hours to yourself. I love the click-thru, HHNT!

g-man said...

LOL at Os. You do seem to have a drinking problem there hon. :)

That is an excellent shot, a moment captured!

Dana said...

swingerwife, sometimes they even surprise me!

Bina, thank you *blushes*

Leighann, yeah! The puckies!! Right next door to you!

Dana said...

Mike, me and food seem to have a very nekkid attraction!

Pronto, now *THAT* was funny!!

Biscuit, you thought I was cheating on you with Rhonda, didn't you?? Not as smitten as I am *wink*

Dana said...

d2b, it's this unnatural attraction between my skin and food!

Nolens Volens, it is a wonderful weekly escape!

g-man, it's this darn food addiction that I have! If I can't eat it I just want to rub it all over myself!

Jormengrund said...

So you have to rub food all over yourself, eh Dana?

That explains your fetish with cucmbers and carrots!

*muha!*

bookbinder said...

I'm not a fan of Starbucks, but am a fan of licking spillage of of boobies. Very HOT!

PS
Remember to mark your calender for November 6th! ;-)

figleaf said...

That's so cool! Er, warm. Er, hot.

I had a coffee theme this week but I was too chicken to include cream. Nice work, Dana.

Also, a *really* surprising contrast between the first photo and the second.

Happy HNT,

figleaf

d2b said...

unnatural or not, I really enjoy that attraction ;)

Bond said...

you dribbled!

hehehehehehehee

random moments said...

I love the lighting in this shot. It does look relaxing!

Dana said...

Jormengrund, cucumbers and carrots? Never!! But corn on the cob is always an option!

Bookbinder, I'd never miss an opportunity to flash you *wink*

Figleaf, was that your coffee I was drinking? I noticed your pot was empty!

Mike said...

dana, Yes indeed it dose! And you wont hear me complaining either ;)

Karl said...

Good Afternoon Dana,

I'm not too fond of Starbucks, but the click thru looks mighty tasty!

Lu' said...

awesome!

Lapis Ruber said...

That click pic did anything but cool me down :-) I know it's Friday already but Happy HNT anyway!

Maeve said...

The clicky is a beautiful shot! Cannot believe that you actually caught all those drops on a pic!
Happy belated HNT!

Rat In A Cage said...

Incredible shot of the cream falling. Not a bad shot of it hitting either! Rhonda was looking hot too. An all around great post!

Ms. Lily said...

OMG woman, you so rock! I love this, and such a hot clicky! You are so creative.
Happy belated HNT!
