December Brewed! Coffees Consumed, Games Played - Happy New Year!

Coffee Beans
     Happy New Year! December was super busy, with January and the new year in full swing, let's take a quick look at the coffees and Ed Hardy Energy Snacks I consumed, and video games I played in December.

Coffees (and Energy Snacks) Consumed in December
     Maxwell House Dark Roast - I believe this was purchased by Mrs. Coffee for us early in December, and was one of the 270 cup coffee containers. It didn't survive through December, but we did enjoy it.
     Community Coffee - I consumed several different blends of this during December. We had some Community Coffee Medium Roast at our house, but we also consumed some Community Coffee blends while we were visiting family in Louisiana.  Mrs. Coffee's family likes to brew the Community Coffee blends.
     Folgers Coffee - This was another coffee blend I consumed when we were visiting family.  The Folger Coffees blends are what my mom likes to brew.
     Maxwell House Gourmet Roast - This is another big 270 cup coffee container, that was purchased after we arrived back home from Louisiana.  We still have a good amount left, and it should last us at least another 2 weeks or so.  I think Mrs. Coffee enjoys this blend a good bit, because it's the second time she has purchased it in 2 months.
     Trader Joe's WAKE UP Blend - Upon arriving home from Louisiana, we had a lot of packages in the mail.  One of the packages was pretty big, and it contained a 28 oz. (1 LB 12 OZ) container of this Trader Joe's WAKE UP Blend Medium Roast coffee.  Like in the past, this Trader Joe's coffee blend was mailed to me from fellow reader Charlie, who writes on his own blog at  Thank you Charlie!
     Ed Hardy Coffee & Chocolate Rocks - What do you do to stay awake while driving through the night? Well, I chose to eat some Ed Hardy Coffee Rocks, and the Chocolate Rocks, to help me stay awake.  I found the Ed Hardy Energy Snacks to be great while driving, as I was able to eat a few at a time, without overdoing it.  I ate them in moderation, so I would not become super caffeinated and get pulled over for driving 100+ mph, but I was in the driver's seat for about 13 hours with the help of Ed Hardy's Energy Snacks.  Not only did I find them useful, but I discovered Mrs. Coffee was sneaking some of them after we made our final stop!

Games Played in December
     Super Mario Bros. - I played this random nights in December, as our oldest son plays the "delay fish" game before bed.  Basically, the "delay fish" game is where he names everything he can possibly think of to delay going into his room by a few minutes, that I may fall for. Super Mario Bros. is one of those things.  I did end up beating Super Mario Bros. in December, when Mrs. Coffee and I had some friends over one night for a Christmas get together. It took me multiple tries, but I eventually made the dash just right, and hit the switch(if you have played it, you know what I'm talking about).
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Played some more online, and a bit more of the single-player for a video project (not just the coffee one).  Haven't played it since we left before Christmas, and since we made it back. Perhaps a few rounds in a bit to see how it's playing would do well.
     Tenchu: Shadow Assassins - A game on my New Year's Video Game resolution list.  I had played this on and off, but really started playing it a good bit in December attempting to finish my resolution.  Did I finish the game?  That's for another post!
     New Super Mario Bros. Wii - When Mrs. Coffee and I visited family out of town, one of my friends brought this over to my parents' house and Mrs. Coffee, he, and I played through this in one night.  We "completed" the game, by using the canons (he knew where they were), and defeated the final boss in just over 3 hours.  I did record a lot of it, but my PC's HDD is almost 100% full, so I'm having to shuffle files around now.
     Endless Ocean: Blue World - Another game on my New Year's Video Game resolution list.  I had played this almost 2 years ago, but started a completely new file in December so I could try and actually pay attention to the storyline.  I have enjoyed my time with the game, actually much moreso than I thought I would.  Was I able to reach the end of Endless Ocean: Blue World though?  More later!

Filtered Thoughts
     Can you all believe another year has already flown by?  Crazy.  If any of you are wondering, "Coffee, why aren't you posting much right now?"  Well, we were out of town for a little over a week, then I was sick.  I have been working since we got back also, and now school is starting up.
     Also, to add a little more to my craziness, as I mentioned above, my computer's HDD is nearly 100% full (typing this on Mrs. Coffee's laptop actually), and I just installed a new PSU and GPU (Christmas gifts), and am waiting on a DVI to HDMI cable to show up any day now, because the one that came with my PC is AWOL.  Once I get my desktop back 100% functioning with the HDD cleared off some, posting should pick back up a bit.

     What coffees did you consume (or other beverages) and games did you play during December?
     Also, do any of you have Endless Ocean: Blue World by any chance?
