coffee: hurry up and wait

I know this is sort of a Generation X and New Coffee Generation blasphemy, but isn’t it a bit weird that we have an entire industry devoted–mostly–to selling brewed coffee? Not that I don’t partake as much as the next...

#firstürbproblems: Skim, not Skinny!

Making sure to specify a “vanilla nonfat latte” instead of a “vanilla skim latte” at Starbucks for fear of being served a Skinny Vanilla latte. Yes… that’s a thing. Really. Well it is for me, anyway. The other odd thing...

Starbucks Frappucino Happy Hour

Starting today through May 15, if you hit Starbucks during “happy hour” between the hours and 3-5pm, you can get yourself a Frappuccino® for half off…

Fall is here . . . at Starbucks!

Confession time: I have never cared for Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latté. You may commence pelting me with scones at your leisure. I do, however, love the fervor with which its return is welcomed every year–this being the 7th–by Starbucks fans...

caveat emptor: Starbucks quietly raised prices

Since I’m living so close to the office now, I’ve been trying to be good and brew my coffee at home in the mornings. I used to hate this when it involved a metro ride since my travel mug doesn’t...

caffeine: easier to homebrew than meth!

I have been happily stickin’ it to the man for over a week now. After a friend showed me the travel mug that had become part of their daily morning routine, I was curious, but not sold. Then I priced...

random: sweet tears?

Just curious… to those artificial sweetener users out there: have you ever actually purchased a box, bag, etc. of the sweetener you prefer? Or are your stocks at home, office and in purse solely filled by grabbing–either a few extra...

2009: high spirits and a full belly

</2008> <2009> I was told that my last two posts were a little on the Ebenezer Scrooge side. Personally, I think the person that thought that can bite my shiny metal ass, but in this weather they might have trouble...

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...

What’s a boy in “glances” supposed to do…

I still say there needs to be a cruising protocol. It needs different applications for different arenas, but we need rules and guidelines to follow. I’ve played “eye and smile” tag with someone around the building for months now. I’m...

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...
