Kind of Cool, Yet Random

Today I was on my break at work, flipping thru The Times, when I came across a picture that stopped me in my tracks. The guy on the left (with the glasses) comes into my store every day...I serve coffee to the man that is on the front of The Times! Ian Rankin, best known for his crime novels...or for getting a grande americano for himself and a triple venti latte for his wife...wrote an article about meeting the First Minister of Scotland after one year in office (here is the link, if you are interested). Funny thing is, even though I have served coffee to him every day for the past 8 months, it wasn't until 2 months ago that I found out who he is. And I must say, I was impressed. I like the fact that someone that is a household name, at least over here in the UK, can be so down to earth. And, I also like the fact that someone so down to earth can be on the front of The Times. So, I would like to say to Ian Rankin, Keep up the good work!


  1. I love this! Nice thoughts on the matter....I totally agree. How cool you get to have these experiences! Starbucks is quite the place to work. Perfect for the observer who likes to blog.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. So who else famous comes into your starbucks? That is #2 that I know of.

  3. From piles of dirty laundry to serving the rich and famous.
    That is life. Serving a famous author sure makes life a bit less mundane. Go girl!
