Mwah-ha-ha! I'm so excited right now, I am going crazy(er than usual...haha)!

So, basically, here's the story. I have a 20 minute walk home from school. I found this cute little coffee shop about 5 minutes from my school, on my way home. (I might have mentioned this before...oh well.) The first time I found it was about two weeks ago exactly, and I went there once that week, and I think once last week. But this week it has been really cold and I actually have small change, so I have gone there like every day this week so far.

Today when I went up to the counter to order my usual coffee to go with milk, the lady (I think I'll call her Em) just asked "kavu s mliekom?" (I might have spelled that wrong...but I'm ok with that, since my spelling sucks in English, too.) And I was so happy, because now I am like officially a "regular" and I have a usual order! Also, then I got a croissant, and I barely had enough money for it. I'm like 99.9% sure Em knows I'm a foreigner, and don't speak that good of Slovak. So I was paid my 1,75 euro price with one euro, two 20 cents, one 10 cent, one 5 cent, and the rest in 1 and 2 cent pieces hahahahaha. It was actually pretty funny. Em found it funny, not annoying at all, which is good. Because if she hadn't been smiling at me, I think I would have been super embarrassed. As it was, I just found it amusing. But then after that, she started talking really fast, and I didn't understand at all what she meant, until she showed me one of those "buy 9 of our coffees and get the 10th free" cards. So now I have one! I feel super happy. The only other time I remember having one of these was back in Cadillac, and using it for hot chocolate at the one place. I never knew the name of that if anyone knows what I'm talking about and would like to inform me of the name, I would like it(:

On a side note: I'm going to try to blog more often (most likely about random things like this) because I follow a few other blogs, and I know I always wish they would post more often. So I will try. And again, if you have any requests for topics for me to write about, just let me know! (:


  1. I love being recognized as a regular at my local coffee/restaurant establishments, it rocks.

    But being a regular at a local coffee shop in a different country? Priceless.

  2. i think you mean Coffeeshop :)...we sometimes call that "praziaren" :) and yes, there is the best coffe in town! I usually buy there "laté" ... my favourite kind of coffee:)
