Dec 1: World AIDS Day

We make a lot of strides forward and a lot of steps back. The ribbon awareness movement has pretty much exploded to the point where you have to ask someone what their color means. Can someone print up a hanky...

comics: Gay Marriage? Oh Noes!!

Another fun strip from Sinfest: Your Corporate Masters. I find it a little funny that New England seems up to speed on this while California, a place most associate as being our country’s own little version of Hell on Earth...

Life’s troubled bubble broken

I’ve got meetings and tasks and all sorts of work crap today. Needless to say, I wish I had her job. Between the festival on Saturday and my continued indulgence of food to nearly rival the festival on Sunday–sadly with...

You think you can Irish up this coffee for me?

I still found it kinda hard to get moving this morning, but once the old routine snapped back into position it was like nothing had changed. The same people on the metro, same people in the Starbucks line. One advantage...

a day about nothing?

I have absolutely no idea what to do with myself today. Yesterday was productive and fun and ended with a great dinner at Mama Ayesha’s with Kyle. I can’t believe I’ve lived here as long as I have and never...

chemical formula: C8H10N4O2

Moose made a very good point over brunch yesterday when I said I wasn’t having any coffee (even though I was quite hungover). I have caffeine 5 days a week, why deny myself some on the weekend? So even though...

coupons: Step yo’ game up

After having to demand my receipt yesterday morning, this morning the cashier made sure to grab it, add this new stamp to it, and then hand it to me. I don’t know if people simply weren’t aware of the promotion...

Two dollars! Two dollars!

I’m a little impressed. Generally whenever Starbucks has a promotion, the stores nearest me seem to have never heard of it, have completely wrong information, or pull the “participating locations” crap. Looking to bring more value-seeking consumers through its doors...

Vibrance, Vitality, Verve… Vivanno™!

Kris said that they were good and he was not wrong! It tastes a bit like the old Carnation Instant Breakfasts, but a little richer. And I did observe the barista putting in a whole banana and whey powder, so...

Giving up the bean… again

I’m giving up my daily trip to Starbucks… I must be insane, right? I was playing around with some of the trends and graphs in Mint yesterday and for fun I looked at what my spending at Starbucks was over...

Back to basics?

It’s time for another Starbucks campaign, the website advertises “something big“. In February they closed their stores down to focus on providing better bar drinks, and now it looks like they’re trying to take back their title for best (better?)...

Coffee Break!

Starbucks is having a Coffee Break, tomorrow morning from 10 to noon. This is kinda interesting to me since everyone I talk to says that while they like the espresso and frozen drinks, Starbucks coffee is their worst item. Especially...

Well aren’t you just SO clever?

I’ve been in many a Starbucks and sure the names of their sizes don’t really make much sense outside of their own RDF, but it isn’t that hard to figure it out. Their new displays even show the sizes of...

Two Crazy Sistas…

That could very well be the title of a new show on BET. It can’t be any worse a title than Hot Ghetto Mess. The Starbucks Red Eye is currently coursing through my veins and giving me amazing caffeine-related superpowers....
