I Love Mr. Moviefone!

I’ve been studying so much at the same Starbucks that Mr. Moviefone (refer to previous blog post) now knows me. He has even started asking how the studying is coming along. I was there Friday night and he told me it looked like I was doing too much studying, since I was surrounded by towering stacks of note cards for words I have yet to memorize (the count is now at about 650 words). I have so many words floating around in my head that I wake up each morning and find myself thinking about a certain word that randomly drifts into my head. This morning it was the word 'chicanery' for some reason.

I think he felt sorry for me that I was spending a Friday night with note cards and books, so he gave me free tea when I went order which was really nice of him. Later that night, the Barista who works with Mr. Moviefone came up to me while I was studying and gave me two packets of these yummy mint chocolate cookies. So this made me ponder the following:

(a) I spend wayyyyy too much time at that Starbucks and stick out like a sore thumb,

(b) the Barista also felt sorry for me that I was spending a Friday night there, or,

(c) the employees think that I have no life apart from studying (which is true for the time being) and take pity on me, and that pity is manifested in the form of free cookies (which I'm not complaining about).

It could very well be (c) or all three of the above...I haven't quite figured that out yet. Or, as someone suggested, maybe they're just genuinely nice, ha. :) One thing I do know is that I will never frequent a different Starbucks ever again to study...the perks at this one are awesome. After all, there's no such thing as too much coffee or too much chocolate.

  1. 650 words?! No wonder they take pity on you.

  2. Um, honey pie. You're so sweet.

    Throw out all your reasons.

    They think you are hot.

    No way an ugly girl would get free stuff.
