I am one of several Seattle/Western Washington Persephoneers, and I have to say, we do love P-Mag. How best to show some love except to participate in the birthday giveaway? Amirite?
Welcome to Love It/Hate It, where two opinionated P-Mag writers mouth off to each other about pop culture.
I am a hippy, dippy, long skirt and Birkenstock wearing, soap making, farmer’s market shopping, non-profit working, dyed in the wool, bleeding heart liberal. I also love to shop. And I love to eat. And I enjoy my cushy life. But, do I enjoy my cushy life to the detriment of others?
This edition of African news hits a few interesting areas. We’ve got political details and women’s health news after the jump.
Of all the news this week, I was most excited to learn that Joe Biden shops at Costco. Seriously, the man looks like he is just enjoying the hell out of life.
In light of the recent marijuana legalization passed in Colorado and Washington, one can find many parallels to the legislation covered in A Secret History of Coffee, Coca and Cola by Ricardo CortÃ©s. While I write this, I am drinking my third cup of coffee, and were this 16th century Turkey, just owning the beans […]
I’ve been up since 4 a.m. and the only thing that’s keeping me going is a steady stream of caffeinated beverages. Clearly, I have coffee on my mind.
I’m a semi-morning person in that I understand and appreciate that getting up a little earlier–early enough to take your time with your morning routine–makes the start of the day so much better.

This week we’ve got cancer prevention news that’s sure to put a smile on the face of many Persephoneers, new evidence of liquid water on Mars in the distant past, fracking earthquakes, and possible glimpses of a proposed fundamental particle that has never before been observed directly. Allons-y!
Look, I don’t want to come down hard on you, barista folks, but we have some things to address about making espresso, basic food handling, and customer service. From a former barista to a present one, here are some things I’d like to ask you to consider.

If you have some coffee grinds, a container with a lid and enough patience to let the concentrate brew overnight, the following recipe may well change the way you enjoy […]
“How do you like your coffee?” Isn’t that one of the quintessential relationship questions? Once someone knows how to prepare a cup of coffee for you, they must really know you.
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s been a long week. It’s been the kind of long week that leaves me wondering about the fastest and most efficient ways to pump caffeine into my system. It’s been the kind of long week that makes me wonder if maybe I could shotgun some Coca-Cola […]
Quick! What’s a (legal) substance that’s often considered energizing or invigorating? Peppermint, cry the new-agey aromatherapy types! Coffee, shout the jaded urbanites!
Did you know that all of my lunchtime poll ideas are taken from things I think about in my real life? Shocking but true. That’s why today’s lunchtime poll is: Coffee or Tea? Both? Neither? Do you make it at home or buy it? I’m only a relatively recent inductee into the Coffee Drinker’s Club. […]
