Morning Coffee (8/21/10)

Morning Coffee

Happy Saturday! GMA is all about bears again, so I'm going to assume there's not much going on in the world. Now the guy who owns the bear who killed someone is calling PETA a bunch of terrorists. Good times.

Ooh, look! You can now preorder the Vampire Diaries soundtrack!

Here's the Scott Simon story that made me cry yesterday.

NPR's Linda Holmes says exactly what I've been thinking about the Starbucks bagel outrage. If you order a bagel, being asked whether you want something on it is not crazy, people. I think if you ordered a bagel in a diner you'd be asked that. And I have given into the fact that I'm one of those people who orders things like "venti non-fat no whip no foam cinnamon dolce latte," and you know why? Because that way I get exactly what I want. What the heck is wrong with that?

Michael J. Fox will be guest starring on The Good Wife.

As a former barista, I give you props for actually knowing the correct way to order your drink! You're supposed to read the modifications as they appear going down the side of the cup.

I also COMPLETELY agree with the article. There is NOTHING wrong with ordering your drink the way you like it. While it sounds complicated & stupid when you order, in most cases it is just as easy to make (unless you're one of those Quad Venti 1/4 Decalf Breve Extra Hot No Foam Latte bastards...and yes, I have made that drink before). Speaking from experience, people are MORE passionate when their drink isn't perfect, so I hardly think it's a blight on Starbucks and corporatism.

Now you're really making me want my Iced Grande 1 Pump Vanilla Extra-Light Cream Iced Coffee :D
