My very "coffee with games" birthday…

October 11, 2012

Coffee Beans
Last week, as has happened every year for my entire life on the same day, I turned another year older. Crazy, I know.

Last week, on my “September Brewed – Coffees Consumed, Games Played!” post, SOMEBODY attempted to spill the beans about my birthday in the comments. FYI, I know who you are, and where you sleep!

So, what items did I get for my birthday last week? Brew yourself some coffee (if you haven’t already), and take a look below (picture included for skimmers)!

The Brew
I had a very “coffee with games” birthday last week. I received one game (which is really six), two new coffee blends, two new coffee mugs, about a ton of homemade cupcakes, some “100% All Natural, Hand Packed” Goodberry’s frozen custard, some candies, and some cash.

You can see most of the items in the image below:

Caffeinated Thoughts
So, there ya have them, most of the items that made for my very “coffee with games” birthday last week. I think a more proper name for the game Mrs. Coffee got me though, with my current backlog, might be BIT.TRIP INCOMPLETE. I really am looking forward to playing the full version of BIT.TRIP RUNNER on it though, and Bean 1 and I actually were just playing the demo (again) for it yesterday after he selected to play it.

As for the coffees, I have only tried the Gevalia Espresso Roast blend so far, and I’m really enjoying it (that was from Mrs. Coffee as well). The custard in the picture was a coffee flavored custard, that being Jamocha; and I enjoyed it while it lasted. I have used the Mr. Coffee mug pictured above (weird story there), and Mrs. Coffee and I, along with the help of Bean 1, Bean 2, and our dog, have finished the ton of cupcakes. The candies pictures, if you don’t know them by sight, are the Werther’s candies. One of them is the Werther’s Original Caramel Coffee hard candies, and the other in the image is the Werther’s Original Caramel Apple Filled hard candies; both are awesome! (Note: Big Werther’s fan here, take it as you will.)

I’ll report on the Kona coffee, as well as the other coffee mug not picture, probably in a later post.

As for the cash, it’s probably all going to the Wii U pre-order at this point, though it was just enough for a certain handheld system…
