Yet another gray day. Satchel curled up beside me and the laptop and the Grande Peppermint Mocha from an unnamed prominent coffee chain named after a character in Moby Dick. Literature has the strangest effect on people and society.

I think that Herman Melville would be both pleased and appalled at the coffee chain’s success. I can’t quite see him drinking a latte, though. Now I’m going to have that image following me throughout the day.
