When I'm not on the road teaching, I have the wonderful luxury of working from home. But, after you've worked from home for a while, sometimes you just need a change of pace. So, today I took my laptop and headed to a nearby Starbucks. It's very strange, but I actually am getting as much work done as I had been while at home. Not to mention that I'm happily sipping a Grande Decaf Non-fat No-whip Caffe Mocha as I work! (This coffee delight may make the more hardcore coffee drinkers grimace. A friend of mine calls it a "why bother"!) A light jazz CD is playing in the background and I'm settled into a quiet corner. Not a bad way to work!
Now...if the course I'm developing ends up having lots of coffee and jazz references in the notes, you'll know where they came from!
