Marilyn's Bottle Art

it's ALWAYS cool when a regular customer shares something awesome, and yesterday marilyn showed us one of her creations: a customized bottle incense burner. she had more out in her car, but it got kinda busy... so we snapped a quick pic and went back to work.

Another Mystery Tune

sometimes i hear a lyric that makes no sense, and then sometimes i'll hear one that makes me wish i wrote it. haven't done a post like this for awhile, and i didn't know this lyric until a few days ago. if you can name that tune, great! if you need a little help, go here. cheers.

Mystery Man Revealed

last november we had a mystery on our hands at homer's. a picture was found near the register and none of us knew who it was. the guy looked familiar, but we were at a loss. yesterday mary rowlands took one look at the photo and said, "that looks like don nanneman!" i drew a mustache on the photo just to make sure... AND SHE WAS RIGHT!

Science Night

one of the benefits of working at homer's is getting to know the customers. ross, a regular customer, asked me to attend science night at his daughters' school. when i realized it was the same school that ashley's kids attend (ashley is a barista at homer's) i figured it's a small world after all.

Groundhog Day

apparently punxsutawney phil saw his shadow this morning which means six more weeks of winter. if it's the same kind of winter we've been having, i think everyone is OK with that.
