Starbucks Observations

I finished reading "Starbucked" the other day.  Interesting book.  I work in a place that caters to people that are OCD.  Yep.  I also like to note that there are certain sorts of folks that amuse me.  I work the drive through frequently, and I definitely notice the difference between drive through folks and walk in folks.  Here is a brief list of the ones that (ahem) AMUSE me:
*The girls that wear HUGE sunglasses.  Sunglasses so big that it really is grotesque.  And they are wearing the glossiest lipgloss… it almost looks like drool on their lips… Gross!  And when you couple the mongo sunglasses with the slackjawed face, they look utterly bored.
*The girls that can’t coherently put together a simple order at the menu board, and when she pulls up she is totally distracted by the group of dorky boys she is carting around.
*The guys that are driving the BMW/Lexus in their business suits that are too important to look me in the eye.
*The moms that try to be MILFs.  Ew.
*The women that order the venti skinny vanilla latte (the biggest size of nonfat sugar free vanilla latte EVER) that are all super skinny and look pissed off.
Honestly, I am not a fan of the drive through.  Going to get a cup of coffee is more than that.  I used to go to this really awesome coffee house called The Inkwell when I still lived in NJ.  I fucking miss that place.  I used to go there ALOT.  It wouldn’t open until sometime in the afternoon, but one didn’t go there until oh… about 10pm or later.  They had awesome coffee (Dutch something or other was my fave). 


Now things are finally passing me by, I can breathe  I feel awesome.  It has taken me awhile, but it has been worth it.  There is nothing I hate more than being bogged down by the heavy pressure of negativity!  I have been working on it the best that I can.  I feel more certain of my future.  I definitely feel more sure of myself, which feels fucking great.  Now all I need is a job that doesn’t require 4:30am showings, haha!

Time time time

Wow I am so happy.  I thought I had to be at work tomorrow by 4:30am, but it’s 6:30!  Woot!


I almost hugged an emu today.  I was petting it, and I was sorely tempted to hug it!  It was so cute!  I came to the realization today that I don’t fare well in a car on twisty roads.  Not well at all.  I also discovered that the Chucks that I bought yesterday have Nirvana lyrics on them!  Neat-o. 
Had a good day, aside from the awfulness of the twisty roads…  Lots o’ fun!

Things I Learned Today

I found out that the original Knight Rider now comes in a complete DVD set.  Yus!
I learned that not all Louis Vuitton bags are made of leather; there was a messenger bag that I liked that had absolutely no leather at all! 
I am realizing that my patience is wearing thin listening to racial comments.
I am also growing tired of being told by others why they don’t like things I like.  Honestly, it is starting to make me wonder about what people really think of me.
I don’t like soy in espresso drinks, except for white mochas.


Winding down.  Going to work tomorrow, nice and early.  Since we were without family, I tried to get in touch with people we know, to see if we could hang out, but… nope.  Hopefully next year there will be family around, or I will be around family, if you know what I mean. 
We had an awesome Christmas!  I had slept like a rock, and that was sorely needed.  We exchanged and opened wonderful gifts.  Sparkly gifts are awesome.  🙂 I Sparkly gifts are my favorite.   Maggie had fun trying to eat way more treats than she should eat.  We made ourselves a delicous Christmas feast.  I called all my family and relatives, finding out who got what.  I spent the entire day at home, and it was great.
