I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

“I ain’t no barista, but …” – danistrulytheman

… all I wanted was my drink sans any problems! Same as I get all the time at all the other Starbucks! My Grande extra hot no foam no water chai latte!! Why must simple things become complicated?? Thinking out loud – never mind. Thanks Marina for expeditiously responding and resolving my issues, as well as for the two freebie drink (any size -woohoo) coupons. Er, kinda resolving I should say … now have customer service rep Michelle on the case lending a helping hand … w/another drink coupon being sent my way, lol! Like I said during our conversation, I never call about all the good experiences, I really wish I never had to contact/call you ’bout the bad … gratis coffee/tea or not!

healthy lifestylin’

Boy, so much is happening, trying many different things, so much I wanna say about it all, but I know my laziness won’t allow that, lol! First thing I will say is that when I woke-up, I had a lightbulb moment … since we went out and bought protein powder (more Tiff’s thing at the time than mine), and listening to her educate me on protein … decided I was gonna have a protein smoothie/shake BEFORE my run … prior to that, I woke up had a glass of water, a cup of joe and was out the door, on my way (I know, how fucking retarded, eh, lol?), and it musta worked, came home 8K later in a record 39 minutes … 39:00 EXACTLY … so I was happy about that, but not only that, spent lots of time learning more about protein powders (so much out there folks, it’ll make your head spin), and quickly joined the mindset of those who eschew powders (with ingredients you can’t pronounce), and instead prefer raw hemp seeds as an alternative … I LOVE that thought, all natural (organic too), and ONLY one ingredient, AND I know my Vitamix will pulverize the shit outta it when making smoothies – so excited for tomorrow’s run, lol … AND, Tiff  on her Harley-health-kick, had me buy edamame (dry roasted, for snacks) as well … like I said, trying new shit … lol, had to laugh as I was putting it into my basket, no fucking way she’s wasabi-ing it … them’s for me, LOL!!

FYI: Starbucks isn’t in the wifi-fixing business!!

… they’re in the COFFEE SELLING BUSINESS!! Quit pestering employees ’bout your iPad’s hitch, bitch … AND quit budding in line, tryin’ to pull this fucking stunt on me. Stop bothering the busy baristas, wasting their time … AND mine … with your bullshitsilliness … I went to the Apple Store and ordered a Starbucks, lol!! 👿

low-key Thanksgiving!!

Circumstances (which I won’t get into, divulge) dictated this simple affair!! And ya know what?? … easy and understated beats fancy schmancyANYEFFINGTIME!! Felt great for once not slaving (for days) in the kitchen for the troops. Too tired to story-tell folks … here’s a few pics from earlier today.

Creemore, coffee, and Canadian sparkling water …

Tiff K’s flat top

Burger, frites and mayonnaise (love the Bibb btw) …
