coffee please.

coffee

I should say upfront that I'm currently sitting in a meeting. I should be doing work that needs to be done, but I find myself looking through Flickr and lamenting the fact that we didn't even break 60F yesterday. I'm also dreaming of more coffee magically appearing in my coffee cup. Sun and coffee, is that too much to ask?

In more entertaining news, my old college roommate sent me a lovely update of the police blotter from our college town. Classic. I offer up a selection of the goings-on in our wee little college stompin' ground:
  • A female subject allegedly hit a male with a stick on Sixth Avenue.
  • A male and female were allegedly drinking alcohol on a bench outside a Chestnut Street residence hall.
  • Neighbors reportedly blocked a driveway on Pioneer Trail Road in Easton and wouldn't let a farrier leave because he drives over the speed limit.
  • Damage to a tree was reported on Chestnut Street.
  • A woman reportedly put a man's cell phone down her shirt and refused to give it back at the Memorial Pool.

Ahem. From the all-knowing Wikipedia:
A farrier is a specialist in equine hoof care, including the trimming and balancing of a horse's hoof so as to fit shoes to the horse's foot. A farrier couples a subset of the blacksmith's skills (fabricating, adapting, and adjusting metal shoes) with a subset of veterinary medicine (knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the lower limb) to address the care of the horse's feet.

And yes, there are enough horses in the general area to necessitate a farrier.
