Eugene Is No Place For a Coca-Cola Girl

It’s been a while. It’s been a long while. And it seems every three or four posts for the last year or so, I start off by saying that. There’s no excuse, except I keep getting distracted. I get swallowed up by Twitter and the lack of a need to post anything that couldn’t be said in 140 characters or less. I get disillusioned by being online at all.

So here we are. Again. What brought me out of writing hibernation? Pepsi, or the overabundance of it. I’m a Coke girl. Just sayin’.

I accepted employment on a project that has brought me to Eugene, Oregon for two weeks. After being here for a week and eating out every meal, this is what I’ve sadly discovered at all but one establishment: this is a Pepsi town. Even at the Costco down the street from the office, it's ironic that Pepsi is served. Why ironic? Because the freakin’ Coca-Cola distributor is TWO BUILDINGS DOWN!

Honestly, it’s all I can do to not pull up to the distributor with a vat of ice and request them to “fill ‘er up!”

And I was just starting to like Eugene….
