There was a door

to which I found no key

There was the veil

through which I might not see.

Omar Khayyam


PS: for those of you that have been waiting,
your coffee is being packaged and stamped
and will be in the snail mail service
later this week.

this is 4 U

Did Gus Kahn write that song? Haaa.... I love song parodies ... Alan Sherman maybe?

I'm drinking yesterday's leftover coffee, reheated in the microwave. A cost-saving measure. Happy themed Thursday to you.

dennis said...

Dennis would not like vending machine coffee --he's trot over to the soda machine and get a coke instead.

Unknown said...

I had completely forgotten how much I enjoy reading Omar Khayyam! Thanks for reminding me.

Kurt said...

Great song.

Merle Sneed said...

The song made me smile out loud.

I remember vending macine coffee. In those days we didn't know enough to realize that it was awful.

dennis said...

Dennis would like to thank you for not posting images of sadness today.

ched: You win the prize and I'll add it to your package. Yes, it was Alan Sherman. ; )

t & t: Oh no, blasphemy, not microwaved coffee ; (

dennis: You know Coke of any kind is not good 4 U!

nick: See you in the snail mail.

kurt: Those machines were a riot.

merle: Yes indeed, but it was fun watching and waiting. Hot chocolate was always fun to have, although not having marshmallows was a down side.

dennis: There's so much sadness around the World, where would one start. People certainly have it much worse off than we do! ; (

hello fudda!

vending machine coffee sucks! as with dennis I would take a coke (diet, please) over vending machine coffee any day....of go without.

thanks for the khayyam quote. he always opens doors to perception.

Joanne said...

I think you have to be in a certain frame of mind to drink vending machine coffee!

Coffee Messiah said...

kimy: No doubt about it.

joanne: Recently I tried one, for old times sake: Yes, still nasty and nothing like coffee at all. Surprising though after all these years! ; (

Drinking a cup of coffee right now in my favorite literary masters cup. I'll be back to visit again soon.

robin andrea said...

Just stopping by to say hello, coffee. My rss feed seems to only update your blog on Thursdays. Not sure what that's about. Hope all is well there for you. We're heading south on sunday-- back to the bay area.
