Well, at least the coffee is free

I went into the kitchen just now and poured out my coffee, and at the bottom of my cup, the residue was . . . gray. Gray. Was my coffee trying to match my suit? Does the fat free half and half mixed with coffee react with Styrofoam? Did something die down there? What’s going on here?

Of course, I didn’t let that stop me from getting more coffee (in the same cup) (I rinsed it out first, though).

I admit that it doesn't taste good. But I'm a coffee junkie, so I drink it anyway. The only stuff I can't choke down is Starbucks drip (as opposed to their fancy schmancy stuff), which tastes like burnt newspaper. Other than that, I just grimace and get through it.

"Starbucks drip"? I think you'll find the remedy in aisle four with the cold medicines.

I have to be really desperate to drink work coffee. I'm not a huge coffee drinker and much prefer a mocha from Starbucks, but when I really need a caffeine fix, I can manage the coffee here but only with three equals and 2 flavored creamers (usually one french vanilla and one irish creme). :)

I, too, prefer mochas, but not their excessive calorie count. I'm a true coffee person, one of those gotta-have it types. I will drink coffee from 7-11. Actually, that's not saying much, because their coffee isn't bad. Point is, I'm not picky, as long as I can put cream in it. Although at the place where I used to work, I also had to use flavored creamer to cover up the taste. I usually used a hazelnut-french vanilla combination.
