This Much I KNOW is True...

  • Star(mega)bucks in downtown Hartford, is a yuppie magnet and it puts me off. Hearing them utter the Starbucks lingo is irritating and prompts me to defiantly ask for a COFFEE OF THE DAY, MEDIUM SIZE PLEASE, as opposed to repeating the toolish,
    "I'd like a venti soy orange frappacinno mochachokalottayaya thingimastuff with extra foam and skim milk."
  • I also know that spilling scalding hot coffee down my gauchos, on a particularly hot day isn't soothing to my soul or my thighs.
  • I know that Paris Hilton's release from prison after having served a paltry 3-5 days (of her 23 day sentence), for undisclosed medical reasons (idiocy?) is indicative of there being TWO different realities in this country. One for the rich, blonde, & famous and one for US
  • I know that Cat's new whip is hot and that I had fun joyriding around town with her, this past weekend. I also know that having to use my feminine wiles and my voluptuosity to get her a decent parking spot, from the parking attendants across the street from my building, should NOT have had to happen. They needn't have asked us if we wanted some of their chicken afterward, because they were "African." The offer didn't do anything to placate either of us, so we declined. Apparently assholism spans a wide spectrum, I KNOW this to be true. I keep hearing the James Brown "It's a Man's World" tune playing in my head, when I think of this incident.
  • I also know that I don't like being called "dear" by women close to my own age. It's condescending.
That's it.

    Preach on sistah! I had a lot of fun over the weekend and it was great riding all over town and being able to go whenever we wanted. Ummmm, that chicken mess wasn't 'bout nairn!!!

    Oh, I'm soooo happy to know Paris is going back to the clink and it'll be interesting to see how much time she serves...

  2. I will not feel bad about my Starbucks order:
    Venti Green Tea Latte with Raspberry and leave in the Melon.

    Especially cause they know me enought that it's rare for me to have to say it.

    I do get pissed when people sit outside and then complain about smokers...it's the only place we can go! In 3 years I think we'll have to catch a ferry to a deserted island to have a cig.

  3. IF I'm forced to go to Starbucks, which thankfully is close to never, I always ask for whatever has the fewest syllables in it that don't include soy, and no ice. And I put cinammon in it, because I only have Starbucks coffee if it has cinammon in it.

    Oh god, I think I'm as bad as the yuppies...

  5. And here I was all excited as these salesman just sent me a $10 gift card to starbucks. It's free! I go to the drivethru so I don't have to deal with the yuppies. Yeah.

    I always get some fancy crap. A mocha latte or whatnot. But I don't order soy. Although I should, my pops grows them. lol. Support your local soybean growers!

    guilty!

    but i only have to order such things because the starbucks workers enforce on customers that they order drinks in a very stuck up way. i'd prefer to just fill out a bunch of check boxes and hand it over because i know how totally high maintenance i sound when ordering drinks.

    but i promise never to hold up the line at the one downtown, since jojo's is nearby and yummier.
