I knew it was coming, but it was still a kick in the ass

I got to work this morning..Freezing my butt off so I went to get a Caramel Macchiatto and my Starbucks was closed crying animated smiley Pictures, Images and Photos

I knew it was coming.. almost every Starbucks around here is closing (and with all the attorneys around here I was really shocked!) Apparently Dunkin Donuts pushed them out, but to be totally honest with y'all, I don't like Dunkin Donuts coffee, their Latte's are good, but the coffee itself is just too bitter for my taste. I was so mad that I didn't even bother going to Dunkin Donuts..but I may be compelled to go there at lunchtime, which is fast approaching as I'm writing this.. they finally turned the heat on in my office building, but it's still cold in here.

I'm really bummed about Starbucks.. I was there last week too when P. was with me on Monday and I didn't even see the sign on the door "This Starbucks will be closing as of October 16th", I'm thinking they didn't bother to put it up until Tuesday... I"m gonna miss me Peppermint Hot Chocolate and my Peppermint Mochas.. the Vivano wasn't too bad either.. Now I've gotta go and search The List to find out which Starbucks around here are going to be staying open.. Boo Hoo.

don't they have a coffee machine at work?

The coffee machine in my office has to be at least 20 years old, and since only one attorney and 3-4 secretaries here drink the sludge they've been making for the past 20 years they're used to it.. it's this (seriously strong) Columbian blend that if I'm really desperate will have a cup (which is almost 3/4 milk and way too much sugar, lol). I tend to drink hot chocolate when I'm here, but if I don't get a chance to finish my morning coffee before leaving the house at 7:15 (and a take along cup doesn't work too well when you're walking a mile with the kid to school) I usually grab a cup somewhere, on my way up to the office.
