I just started reading Elizabeth Bear's Karen Memory and I'm realllllyyy enjoying it.

This coffee shop is the best. You can pay a monthly fee and stop by for coffee/tea/latte/whatever whenever you want. I tip generously but it feels like free coffee all month.

Good morning! Yeah yeah it's Friday. Have a good one, everybody.

It's raining here but I'm waiting in line at the coffee shop... then off to the subway and work.
