Antique Espresso Machine

jenny & i daytripped to st. joseph w/some old college friends this afternoon. our destination? a quasi-huge antique mall. we saw some real cool stuff, and we bought a couple of low end items, but we couldn't shell out the money for the brass espresso machine.

Hidden Skills

when you work at homer's, you never know what kind of skills are needed at a moment's notice. head patting and stomach rubbing aren't things that EVERYONE can do at the same time.

French Spanish

laura and kristen collaborated on this chalkboard art a couple of weeks ago. i have to admit when someone orders a cafe au lait, i usually write "ole." homer's is a melting pot.
