It's called a BRAIN DUMP.  And man, do I need one.  So I'm spread out all over my office….chillin' on my couch doing some sorting, emailing, REM listening, and trying to figure out what's next to go on the list of "things Scott is doing that he shouldn't be doing."

So anyway…thought I'd share what's rattlin' around my noggin' right now along with some links worth checking out.  

That's it……for now. 

Back to it.

Is Your Starbucks Closing?

Here it is ladies and gentlemen!  The “official” list of Starbucks stores that will be closing next year.

And WHY do I seem to be in such a good mood? 

Because I’m in luck!  Even though they are closing down 16 Chicagoland stores, NONE of my “regulars” are included.

Praise the Lord and pass the skim!

How about yours?

P.S. Sorry to all of you who are losing your favorite Starbucks.  Seriously….  That’s a bummer.

New Starbucks Machines are Wokin’ and Rollin’

Woked into my "Thursday" Starbucks this morning when lo and behold………brand new machines

With Chinese woks on top.

$16k/each.  Better shots.  Shorter than the old ones, to encourage conversation with the baristas (which I'm sure they are really excited about.)

Hmmm… (Updated)

But HONEY LATTE?  C’mon…

This is exactly what went through my head five minutes ago when someone approached my table here at Starbucks to offer me a sample of their newest drink – a honey latte.

So here I am sipping it………..

Sip #1: "Hmmm…..not very good.

Sip #2: "Still not very good.  The honey aftertaste is buggin’ me.  This just isn’t right."

Sip #3: "Ok, no more.  I’m done."

Is this why they’re getting rid of the almond syrup?

C’mon now.

What’s next?  Lemon Latte?  Taco Latte?
