Readathon: Mini Challenge

In answer to the Feed Me Seymour! Mini-Challenge over at Linus's Blanket, I'm posting a description of food (drink...) coming straight out of Little Brother by Cory Doctorow.

The Turkish coffee shop on 24th street fixed me up good with a go-cup of Turkish coffee. Basically, Turkish coffee is mud pretending to be coffee. It's thick enough to stand a spoon up in, and it has way more caffeine than the kiddee-pops like Red Bull. Take it from someone who's read the Wikipedia entry: This is how the Ottoman Empire was won: maddened horsemen fueled by lethal jet-black coffee-mud. (90)


Shel, you and I are obviously going to have to get us some of that for our 2-5 am Challengeathon.


  1. Forget waiting for our mini-challenge. I wants it nows!

  2. It looks like hot chocolate which I would so love right now. Happy reading and thanks for playing!

  3. Mmmm...

    Hot chocolate....

    That's it. We're having a grocery store run at some point soon.
