Cupcake Time!

Twitter + Cupcakes = Curbside Cupcakes!

I work in SW DC.... and there is basically nothing around... aside from the standard McDonalds, Starbucks, Potbelly, and Quiznos. Lunch is painful (well it would be if my Agency didn't have such an Awesome cafeteria!).... Happy Hour is sad.... Luckily there are awesome places 1 stop away @ Capitol South.... and don't get me started on all the Cupcake and Yogurt places up near GalleryPlace....

So imagine my delight a few weeks ago when one of the people I follow on Twitter re-tweeted a post from @CurbsideCupcake! They were coming to SW! But I was out of the office that day :(

But a week later... They were back! And I got my cupcake! And it was awesome!

Now I troll my twitterfeed looking for the Cupcake location ....

Note - There is also a mobile Yogurt truck - but it rarely comes to SW... I caught them once in L'enfant... and coming soon... a Pizza Truck!

Anything! will be undergoing some changes...

I've bought a domain name and will be re-branding... to Make Lemons...

Origin of the phrase.......

Many years ago when R, A, and I all worked together...we went to get yogurt at TCBY...
and were riding back to the office. We were talking about something... (it may have been lack of sprinkles on the yogurt!).... and I shouted out Make Lemons!! When I meant Make Lemonade... :)

Last night I finally got around to hooking up my Wii Fit. My plan is to get back to running every other day (at least during the week).... and do Yoga/Strength Training/Aerobics via the Wii on the other days.

So before you start the activities, Wii takes you through a setup where it measures BMI, Wii-Age, and Weight... along with Balance.

Imagine my surprise when this message popped up....

Because I trip all over the place, including falling down stairs!! (I think part of the problem was I wasn't used to the Balance Board... and I am generally bad at video games anyway.... but it was still amusing!)

Anyway...Tracking progress

Day 1:

BMI - For me only :P

Wii age - 59 :/

Weight - For me only ... but I will say... it was not as bad as I thought it would be.

About a year ago Starbucks introduced a new rewards program.... of the type where you pay $25 for a years membership and you get a percentage off each purchase, plus free stuff. If you go there nearly everyday like me... its totally worth it (maybe not worth it for Starbucks... they discontinued it) :) Now there is a Gold Rewards program... Starbucks went ahead and moved everyone in the old program to the new card, and mailed out new cards! Fancy!!

Here's the part that WMATA could learn from... the Starbucks website lets you manage your account online... You can add multiple cards, setup auto-reload where you can reload based on a date or when your balance hits a certain amount. You can transfer balances between cards (ie if you ever lost a card.... just transfer to another card that you have).

If you have ever registered your SmarTrip card with WMATA it appears to go into this big abyss.....where you can't search on it or pull it up again.

Maybe WMATA and Starbucks could go into business together?? I see enough people drinking coffee on the Metro in the AM anyway.... pay for commuting and coffee with the same card!!

Yes I'm begging for votes in this poll... My picture is #1....
