I stopped by our favorite Starbuck's today on my way to Tsukuba City but the only thing percolating was my Grande Drip. Not that I'm complaining ... things could always be worse. I could be chug-a-lugging a steaming cup of "Drip On," the Japanese instant coffee of choice. Just one look at the container, alone, is enough to make this Drip sign off for the evening. Sayonara!
