Oh, my goodness! What are we to do?


I just got news that STARBUCKS is CLOSING:


Oh dear … that’s what competition will do to you.

But, never fear … as a public service, I have come up with a top ten list of things to do while Starbucks is closed:

1. Visit a sick friend or relative or, if necessary, sit in a hospital emergency room and comfort the people who are waiting for attention, assuming they speak English.

2. Dim the lights, turn off your tv, and take a nice nap. It’s good for you and you can help fight global warming at the same time.

3. Don your most comfortable clothes, put on some music, and straighten up a closet.

4. Go to a used comic book store and buy every back issue of your favorite comic from when you were twelve years old.

5. Purchase a coloring book and crayons and scribble away your frustrations.

6. Make some meatloaf, invite a friend over, open up a bottle of your favorite wine, and talk about your worst enemies.

7. Climb a tree and make a sound like an owl every time someone passes by.

8. Walk through a supermarket and ask the shelf-stockers fun questions like, “Where do they get Canola oil from?” and “What’s Nacho Cheese?”

9. Offer to camp out in front of Starbucks for anyone willing to pay you $18.50 an hour.

10. Pound sand.

I hope that helps. Anyone have any other suggestions on how to pass the time? How to re-focus? Isn't it such fun to smell the coffee?


There's this cute little girlie, she's a'workin' there
A black leotard and her feet are bare
I'm gonna drink a lotta coffee, spend a little cash
Make that girl love me when I put on some trash
You can understand why I've got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack, yeah honey
To that sugar shack, whoa yes
To that sugar shack.

I think I'll eat donuts and watch Wonder Woman! :D

What a great combination! I wonder why I've never thought of that? :-D

I think a nice long bubble bath while reading and sipping tea would be just grand.

I don't go to Starbucks anyway. I know, bad consumer; bad, bad consumer. ;P

Hooting like an owl while in the tub might be an interesting touch. Be sure to post pics. :-)

Well, I suppose if the bubbles were positioned correctly...but with my luck they'd slip. lol! Also, Mr. Ed would have to agree to share said picture; which, knowing him, he'd probably say okay. *g* Don't get your hopes up, though. I'd have to clean the bathroom first.

Make your own coffee at home, and drink it naked on the living room couch.

Would I be able to sue myself if I spilled it and scalded myself? :-D
