Eight O'Clock Coffee

This morning I got up at 7:10 and got out of bed at 7:40. I didn't have the Eight O'Clock Coffee until about 9, but I had a relatively productive morning that made up for laziness from the previous 4 or 5 days. This is my new study area, near natural light when it is available.


My fondest non-memory of Hegel is writing a 15-page paper on Phenomenology of Spirit back in the spring of 2004. I have absolutely no recollection of what the paper was about, or what the reading was about. I just remember writing it in the Regenstein and emailing Sam back and forth about how the paper was (not) coming along (ah, pre-Gmail days). Anyway, thank goodness for a fine professor who can make Hegel not only understandable, but appealing.


The coffee was good (and is reported to be a good buy, link via Mordecai), but you shouldn't take my word for it. We also got Dunkin' Donuts coffee grinds, so I will have my own taste test that no one should pay much attention to. I will report back nonetheless.

It should also be noted that I took an hour nap before noon. Still, progress is progress, peoples!

Hey, I think I also don't remember that non-memory. This makes me want to get a doughnut. There's a 24hr doughnut place here, but I would need to get gas first... hmmm... I'm going!

I'm pretty sure Dunkin' Donuts coffee is the platonic form of coffee, so I'm not sure that a taste test is necessary. If there were Dunkin' Donuts in Twin Peaks, no doubt that's where you would have found Agent Cooper. Still, I'm curious to hear your findings.
