George R.R. Martin

literarystarbucks:

George R.R. Martin goes up to the counter and orders a series of incredibly complicated drinks, each more detailed and layered than the last. The barista works for an hour and finally hands them across the counter to Martin, who promptly throws one of them away with little to no explanation. That coffee had been the barista’s favorite.

I do not desire mediocre love. I want to drown in someone.

Draco: Sure you can manage that broom, Potter? Harry: Yeah, reckon so Draco: Got plenty of special features, hasn’t it? Shame it doesn’t come with a parachute-in case you get too near a Dementor. (Crabbe and Goyle sniggered) Harry: Pity you can’t attach an extra arm to yours, Malfoy. Then it could catch the Snitch for you.[x]

According to a Turkish proverb, coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and sweet as love. 
It’s National Coffee Day, and to celebrate we took a dip into the NPR archives and found this great report tracing the history of the coffee break, courtesy of Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg.
Enjoy!

According to the Victorian Language of Flowers, asphodel is a type of lily meaning ‘my regrets follow you to the grave,’ and wormwoood means ‘absence’ and symbolizes bitter sorrow. The entire question has a hidden meaning of “I bitterly regret Lily’s death.”

No cardboard, no cellophane, no throwaway plastic trays, and no brands: Berlin’s newest supermarket is certainly a step away from the usual neighborhood grocery store.
Opened last Saturday, Original Unverpackt (the name translates to “Original Unpackaged”) is a novel shop in Berlin’s Kreuzberg neighborhood that has dispensed entirely with disposable packaging. Granted, the term “supermarket” might be a little grandiose for this small but tightly packed store, but the concept’s legs are as long as the store’s frontage is narrow.
Not only is a minimum-waste grocery store a canny business idea in a country that’s packed with green-conscious consumers, it’s also an interesting pilot project relevant to any city trying to cut their landfill and recycling burden.
