Surreal Compliments

i knew that i was scheduled to open homer's this morning, that's why i had trouble getting to sleep last night. following the advice of an old friend, i did something boring: i read old blog posts. the very first one i ever posted on davidcedillo.com referenced the surreal compliment generator. if you click on it you will read surreal compliments such as "you are truly a wristwatch in a world of lumps." it's good to know that website is still around.

Saving The World...

one of our regular customers asked jarred if he knew about a book that tells the story of homer's. then jarred sent a text asking me the same question. here is what i told him: jim mathis wrote a book 10 years ago called saving the world one latté at a time. it explains how this place came into existence. if you are wondering why the coffeehouse is called homer's and not jim's, read the book!

here's nate, chloé, and becca last week when they helped out @ jeff todd's new year's eve bash. the three homer's baristas greeted everyone who came to the party, took names for the electric guitar giveaway, and danced the night away when no one was looking.

Happy New Year... Still?

yesterday was new year's day, and today is the anti-climactic day after... do you still wish everyone a happy new year? probably not the people you already said it to, but what about the people you haven't seen in the last few days? tell a barista if you still say happy new year after january 1st or not, and then get double punches toward a free drink!
