Alex has to conduct a psychology experiment for his end-of-semester project (due January 15th). We will be going to Starbucks to ask patrons these questions in person, but it will help him to have a larger sampling. If you feel like answering the questions, please post a reply below. Thanks!
Question 1: Do you patronize Starbucks or another beverage shop (Jamba Juice, Tully’s, etc.) regularly?
Question 2: Assume your chosen drink costs $3. If the shop offered a prepaid annual subscription card for $600, which permitted you one drink per day for a year, would you purchase the subscription?
Question 3: Please explain your Question #2 answer (why/why not).
We took the time today to go to the Seattle Aquarium, since that’s always a good indoor activity. Here is my best indoor photo, taken with the HX50V.
I do remember the name of the wildlife in this photo.
Afterwards, we went to a pier restaurant called The Fisherman, where we sat for lunch.
Ding #1: Prices were outrageous for a drop-in lunch.
Ding #2: After 10 minutes, no one had come to serve us (although the hostess had seated us and knew we were there).
We left and rode the Great Wheel.
Strangely, none of my city shots from the top of the wheel came out well (possibly because the glass enclosures are tinted), but this one below looks pretty good. I had to overexpose it in post-processing because his face looked so dark. This is the only full-face pic of The Man I’ve been able to get recently. Usually he holds his hand up (sometimes in a rude gesture) in front of his face, when he knows I’m trying to take a photo.
So, after the lunch debacle, we simply came home and went to the pub. When we got home, there was a box of yarn on the porch! What an awesome day.
