friendliest monster coffee in Camden

Yesterday I went to see Vernon God Little at the Young Vic, a totally amazing performance. I almost died laughing, it's every bit as funny as the book, in a totally different way. If you ever get the chance to see it, go! Best thing I've seen in ages!!!
My friend Paul and I went on a class picnic today at Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath, but the weather was so blustery that everyone except our tutor found reasons to bag out. Nevertheless, we had a great time in Kenwood's tea shop, then went shopping in Camden Market, visited a classmate at the bar in Hoxton that she manages, and went for a curry on Brick Lane. The cafe in Camden, called Inhabitation and just across from the market, was the absolute best. The milkshakes are fab and Paul treated me to an astonishingly large cinnamon cappuccino, the size of my head. The cafe owner was as friendly as my cappuccino, not a bad place at all.

Yes, I look a bit mad in this photo. The cappuccino's name is Steve.

Yeah, the size didn't make it the classiest cappuccino, but apparently it's some Norweigen thing, having a huge coffee with cinnamon (says the cafe owner). I ordered it 'cause it had some funny name, like Gøstå Schlessa or something... I love it when I don't know what I'm going to get...

I wonder what's happening with Pat and the comics jam? I might go ahead and do the next panel if we don't hear from her soon. It's been manic the past few days, and my degree show's on 3 July, not far now!

Oh I wasn't knowing it was Norweigen!
And it has also an interesting Name :D
Gøstå Schlessa
I sometimes love to choose What I don't know, but yet I go cautious with knowing the ingredients :D

Yeah I wonder too, Go for it :D

No, it wasn't really Gøståa Schlessa (I made that up) but something like that! ;-) Okay, I'll go ahead on the comics jam.

Zio Ricco in downtown Seattle used to serve lattes in big mugs that seemed more suited for soup. I miss that. Zio Ricco is no more. I'm not even sure what's in its place nowadays.

Aww, what a shame. When I was a teenager, the coolest place to get coffee was the Last Exit, and then it moved to another place and was slightly less cool. And last time I was there, we went to the Zeitgeist, which wasn't bad. I used to sell lattes from the third tier at the UW stadium, couldn't believe how much people would pay for tiny little cups of coffee.

The Camden monster coffee was a funny suprise, but I couldn't even finish it, and I think I prefer the smaller versions...
