Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

OK. So, my last post was about tasering. Since then, I have been clocked while engaging in the Sweet Science. I also was tear-gassed. I love my job.

Of all I've been through in the Academy, if I were forced to pick one to do again, it would be the taser by a long shot. I'd take that over some of the PT we had to do, for that matter. The tear-gas wasn't terrible, but it really sucks for about 2 minutes, until you can get some fresh air and catch your breath. Mind you, we were in an enclosed trailer and had to take off our masks. I imagine it's a little more bearable in an open area. Still not my idea of a fun Saturday night, though.

I graduate in 8 days, and I couldn't be happier.

Actually, I could be happier, had I never seen this:

Yes - That is indeed 2 Caribou Coffee stores right next to each other. It's up in C**n Rapids (P.C. Police Note: We don't like the name of that city. You have been edited and warned!!!) To be fair, there was an old store there, and it's expanding. This is how I picture Seattle, except with Starbucks instead.

Unfortunately, I may not make it back to Drinking Liberally for a while, so if any of you read this, I've not abandoned you. I'm just stuck working Thursday nights for a while. I'll get back as soon as possible.

So -- do you know? Is Caribou Coffee wholly owned by General Mills?

My understanding is that Caribou is owned by Crescent Capital, a group backed by a Bahraini banking group. There was a little kefuffle about this, because the bank is Islamic, but that's Americas love of diversity for you.
