Let's not lie here. I'm addicted to caffeine. I need to survive. I jones for the stuff on a daily basis. My coffee maker goes on automatically without me even having to tell it so. Sadly, I still have to move from my bed to hit the brew button and as much as I have debated moving the coffee maker to my night stand, it's better in the kitchen. Then I have a reason to be fully mobile and functional. And believe me, caffeine at 6am is a reason to be moving. My trek is really only from my bed, to my kitchen and living in a 1 bedroom basement apartment, I'm not going to lie, it's not far. I haven't counted, but I'm going to say less than 10 steps. Short of being IN my bedroom, the coffee maker could not be closer. So, I've got 10 steps to travel to get my fix. But my question is...how far would YOU go for coffee?
I've got to give my usual twitter props to @DunkinDonuts, as well as @puckstopper who is the owner of this fantastic mug. I'm nothing if not always stalking the latest swag on twitter, and DD has got some good stuff. Let's not forget the awesome Friends Don't Let Friends Drink Starbucks promotional t-shirt that's available for sale.
To anyone who's ever had Dunkin Donuts coffee, I'm sure you could all agree with the statement proudly imprinted on these promotional mugs. It hurts when I'm in California and have to adjust to the time change without my blueberry iced coffee. It really hurt when I visited Greensboro, NC in August (just a WEEK before they opened their Greensboro location, mind you) and had to get through being a Maid of Honor without NY bagels and my appropriate caffeine.
So props to Dunkin' Donuts for their brilliant marketing strategy and use of a fantastic tag line that several people can relate to. And as far as Aruba is concerned, Dunkin' Donuts is just another reason to go there.
