Free coffee!
Wednesday. 7.16.08 6:03 pm
No, I'm not giving you a link to free coffee.

The local 7-11 seems to have problems selling hot drinks, so every now and again they will have some crazy promotion to get people to buy coffee. Every so often, the person working will just let me have a free coffee, because they're cool like that. I think the coffee doesn't sell because the mean old lady who works there makes it very weak. Also, she's mean, so I don't like to go in when she's working.

Anyway. Back in January there was a "free coffee" sign. Of course, I suspected monetary involvement, and didn't ask what was going on until three days before the promotion ended. Coffee wasn't selling between 4p and 11p, so they figured that giving away hot beverages in any size of their paper cups between those hours would get people used to buying it. I made sure to get as much coffee as I could. If only I'd asked a week earlier. Bah.

In the months between, I realized that I shouldn't go to 7-11 every day to buy a coffee for $1.29, as it adds up. I wanted to buy a travel mug, but the one I wanted was 7 dollars. Even with one free coffee and $.69 refills, I couldn't justify the initial cost. Oh, but it's 7 dollars. Oh but I have to wash it. Oh but.

A few days ago, we went to 7-11 to check out the milk prices after my Wal-mart milk expired. (The organic milk is everything I wanted and more... maybe I'll go have some with this coffee. Stupid pricey tasty organic milk.) On the door was a "buy a coffee mug and get a week's worth of coffee free" sign. Of course, I had to look into this, having wanted a mug and never turning down free coffee. I found the mug that I'd originally wanted, and now I have 6 free coffees, as I've used the initial and first free coffees. I figure that I wasn't going to buy the mug without any major incentive and would have kept paying $1.29 for a cup of coffee, so 8 free cups of coffee almost means that the mug is free and they are paying me to drink their coffee, since I won't have to buy coffee for at least 3 days.... In actuality, it's more like I've paid 3 dollars or so for the mug, with refills being $.69 each. I like it better in the "I wasn't going to buy the mug, so under that assumption..." sense. Mmm, coffee.

I also made more mini-oreo-pies, this time I actually put whipped cream and extra oreos in them. They're tasty.

I leave you with this tooly guy (my apologies), introducing a song that I have been singing for the past forever. Darn you, Shonen Knife! Also, the video... is interesting.

You know, if you just get a coffeemaker and some ground coffee, I think it's cheaper in the long run.

She's right, you know.
But the initial cost is terrible, hahaha.
