Utter Sadness

I have no words. I'm pretty devasted by this, as I, along with many others, have a connection to someone hurt at VA Tech. The entire world stands behind VT, including other VA schools. This says it all:

With All Due Respect..

I know I'm a few days late on this, but did anyone else watch The Sopranos?

With all due respect, to the show creators, actors, and crew, it kinda sucked!

It was slow moving and a little too esoteric. All of the imagery with the lake and the loongggg glances between Tony and Carmela and Janice got on my nerves.

As the show enters its last few episodes, do you think they can keep viewers?????

La Dulche Vita

I love my baristas at the Starbucks at 19th and K, but yesterday when I ordered an Iced Tall Double Skim Dulche de Leche the barista looked at me like I had asked for a Triple Drip Skim Human Baby Skin Frap- Light. Even though the new Dulche de Leche was on the menu hanging on the wall AND I got an e-mail announcing the new flavor, NO ONE knew how to make the drink. They had to go pull out the recipe card from a box and figure it out.

Now I know it gets hectic at Starbucks, especially at this location that is in a tiny space, but I don't think it's that hard to learn a limited menu and occasionally incorporate new seasonal recipes. Step up your game Starbucks baristas of DC!!

p.s. - the drink is DELICIOUS!
