Beverage of the day

Pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. Like crack. Warm, yummy, liquidy crack.

I still refuse to play their lnguistic game, though. Heaven forbid I use the words small, medium, and large when ordering. It is a bit funny to watch the clerk, er barista, become a bit disoriented when I don't go along with ther subtle subversion of America.

Many thanks to Trinity for the free beverage coupon.

Yes! extremely addictive AND tasty.

i also do that little song and dance with them, as follows:

Me: I'd like a medium pumpkin spice latte please.

They: Grande pumpkin spice latte hot.

Me: No, just a medium.

I love how they copyrighted the Italian word for twenty.

I, too, refuse to use the "tall", "grande", "venti" bullshit. Way to stay strong and be a man...while ordering your girly drink.

Isn't Halloween over? So...pumpkins are kind of "last month." Right?

Now's the part where you turn them into pie for Thanksgiving...or apparently into pumpkin spice lattes.

It's almost mittenacht....you better get us back to the Starbucks before we turn into pumpkin spice lattes!

No time for Seattle's pumpkin pie. Dexter's on.

i guess the Starbucks flavor of the month is Caramel Macchioto now, though.

A medium one, that is.

I'm glad that I'm not alone in my (little) revolt.

Guys, wanna start a fight club?
