I like the Latte. But I only order small, medium, and large. It is pretty funny though when the clerk feels compelled to repeat it in Starbucks talk - "O.K., one venti latte." I resist the urge to ask "Is that large? Because I want a large."

I used to visit one by my office so often, sometimes twice a day, that the clerks got to know me by name. There was one that never had to ask if I wanted the extra shot. That Starbucks closed and was replaced by a Subway. Smiley: frown

Cheers.



Also diglett, the kickstarter game now shows stretch goals. One of the already met stretch goals is to have the choice between male and female PC and that that affects the story and how NPCs react to you.

I kind of expectede you to comment on the actual wine though.

Oh and about the food pairing thing, Chardonnay is white, right? (cause I know jack sh*t about wine...)

Yeah, chardonnay is white. It's generally a really simple wine and won't be very complex, which makes it confusing as to why people would want an expensive one unless they don't know much about wine (it's really hard to **** up chardonnay unless you make it complicated).

I'm personally not a fan of it because most wineries don't do a dry chardonnay (I much prefer dry whites; a dry riesling or rosé with good fish is the best meal ever). It's an easy wine to get into white wine with though, because it's generally pretty fruity and sweet (because it's pretty neutral and can have a lot of other flavors imparted to the vintage).

I love coffee. SO. MUCH!

I hadn't really had coffee until a couple weeks ago when I was doing 80 hour work weeks. I've decided I'm not much of a commercial coffee drinker (i.e. Starbucks, Tullys, etc) because their black coffee is garbage, so I end up getting lattés and stuff.

Starbucks also has some **** good hot chocolate. Definitely had some late one night when I was cold as **** and didn't want to be awake for the next 5 hours.

They'll think of something when they get to 2.5million. The post originally said something along the lines of "we'll see about stretch goals if and when we get to 900k"

It's not a compulsion on their part. That is technically what we're supposed to do. It's partly because they want us to teach the customers how to properly order drinks, and partly to make sure we got the order correctly. One pet peeve that I have is when people start rattling off a bunch of customizations to a drink and don't tell me what **** size they want. That is seriously the easiest way to make sure your drink gets made correctly. Do you want a hot, iced or blended (frappucino) drink and what size is it? Tell me that first, THEN tell me what customizations you want. I've gotten enough practice now that I usually can remember most of the customizations if there are a lot, but not always.

Also, I got reinstated to school!!!! So I'll be back in Eugene by the end of the month! So stoked!

I prefer Starbucks because I don't need my wallet when I go there; I can use my iPhone to pay (I usually leave my wallet in my jacket or my car).

Also, you'd be surprised as to how hard it is to find a good local coffee shop. There's one on the main street in the town that I live, but mostly it's Starbucks/Tullys.

It all comes down to branding.

Starbucks is an extremely strong brand, and anything they can do to ensure that is more money for them. The reason Americans like dark roast coffees is primarily due to a Starbucks marketing campaign back in the 60s/70s (iirc). At that time, the artisan coffee industry didn't even exist yet, because artisan coffee trees had yet to be "discovered" The trees were known, of course, but when grown at the same altitudes you grow other coffees, they produce an extremely poor product. It wasn't until the discovery that those trees grew very high quality beans at high altitudes that the artisan coffee market formed.

So what Starbucks did was roast the **** out of the poor quality beans Americans had access to, burning out the less desirable, generally sour flavors, and invested a LOT of money in getting their consumers addicted to the dark, burned flavor instead. Which wasn't THAT hard, because flavor profiles generally go lightly roasted high quality beans > dark roasted low (or high) quality beans > lightly roasted low quality beans.

It's essentially how they started their brand, and it's what allowed them to expand so well.

But now, with a well established and expanding artisan coffee market, Starbucks is having a harder time selling their product. They expanded on the premise that they offered the best product, which was actually true before high quality beans were readily available, but it's no longer the case. So now they have to sell the Starbucks experience, and the more they can get you to identify with their brand, the better. It's why they've sunk so much money into their branding. People go to Dunkin Donuts because it's cheap and it has donuts. People go to Starbucks because there's the perception that they have better coffee. Which IS true, when you're comparing them to other big coffee chains.

But when you're comparing them to small beaneries and coffee shops, that's generally not true anymore.

It's a big part of why Starbucks is focusing far less on urban areas now. Suburbia and rural areas are far less likely to have a decent population of coffee houses and beaneries than urban areas are, which vastly reduces their competition. Starbucks easily offers the best coffee in at least a five mile radius from my house (assuming I'm not making it at home, which is what I typically do). But if I'm in Princeton? Yeah, no, I'm going to go to Small World for better coffee.

The Small World and Starbucks near Princeton campus are within a block of each other. Small World is on a side street, where Starbucks is on one of the main streets through the city, with far more foot traffic. Despite that, Small World is almost always at least twice as busy as Starbucks. Because they offer better coffee at a similar price point.

I honestly don't remember the dates. Ironic, given that I majored in history, but I have no head for them. I know they began to rapidly spread about a decade before artisan coffees became popular. Whether that was in the 50s or the 90s, I have no clue.

So, I went to my aunt's birthday with my mom. Usually a rather dreary experience that consists of cup of tea and say hi to grandma -> glass of beer and hear my uncles stories from work that I don't care about and my grandma's latest vacation that she's already told me 83 times about -> food and another glass of beer and wondering why I agreed to go again -> dessert and patiently wait until it's appropriate to get the **** out.

Now however we managed to avoid the horribly boring neighbors that are always there and some old friends of my aunt and uncle were there, I normally wouldn't care much about that but apparently he is a whiskey connoiseur and he liked the occasional good beer so I spent half the evening introducing him to all the various breweries, websites, beer styles and history of craft brewing.

And as a bonus, my aunt and uncle got me a beer pack by one of the better Dutch breweries, I've already had 5/6 of those beers but that there's even one I hadn't had in there I consider a big win.

Starbucks' original store in Pike's Place Seattle opened in the early 70s. I think it was 1971 or '72 to be exact, but I'm not 100% sure on that. That was back when they only sold beans.

Speaking of my place of work. I got to play in the deli today because they were really short handed. Which is good, because it got me an extra 3 hours of work today to make up for the 5 hour loss I had when I called in sick for a bad dizzy spell earlier this week. I was really worried that I was going to be short on hours this month for my insurance.

Are you sure you're getting sufficient calories/nutrients? Dizzy spells can often be a sign of deficiencies there--potassium and protein being the most common I know of, besides simply having too little to eat in a day.

I'm pretty sure I just didn't eat enough the day before. The only thing I had for dinner was a cheese quesadilla, which aside from not being low carb friendly, is not very substantial. So that was just a wake up call that hello, I can't do that to myself. I didn't intend to not eat dinner, I just got really distracted playing Fire Emblem on my new used gamecube and I kinda forgot to eat.

Hey guys, what do you do when you find yourself unable to focus on an assignment? I usually write my papers right up to the deadline, but I can't really do that with my bachelor, because of all the midway counselling. Having a hard time motivating myself, which is ironic, considering my paper is on motivation.

I set myself deadlines that I have to meet. I plan out when I'll have certain parts done, and I make sure I'm not a sh*thead about blowing them off.

My iPhone/iPad are awesome about that because I set calendar alerts so I start getting alerts like crazy when I have to do something. My phone going batsh*t on me means I get irritated to the point that I know I have to get sh*t done.

That's how I work, people whine at me enough that I finally snap and am like, "FINE! I'll do your work for you because you're a lazy **** You suck at life and you should feel awful!"

I've actually had to do that at work twice now. Same guy. If I was inclined to be sociopathic at all, he'd be in some serious ****

I'm almost positive I signed up for an invite forever ago,but I never received one. But I could sing up and take the survey now, so maybe not...

I suppose League of Legends will have to suffice, when I have the MOBA urge. Though I still primarily run Garen.


What's your Steam name? I've got a few invites sitting in my inventory.


idiggory, thanks! Smiley: grin

Also, you'd be surprised as to how hard it is to find a good local coffee shop. There's one on the main street in the town that I live, but mostly it's Starbucks/Tullys.

You were like Federal Way-ish or something right?

There were 3 good places in North Seattle that I remember trying at some point. Only one was actually a coffee place, one was chocolate shop (why wouldn't they make an excellent mocha ya?) and the other was a bakery. Had friends who were really anti-starbucks though, so that helped. Smiley: lol

Lol, feel free. I don't really have anyone on my friends list there. Has never really mattered, since I don't play any online games through it.
