[ gingerbread ]


I have got to say, there is only one single reason I get excited for the ridonkulously early holiday shopping season.


I'm usually not a Starbucks person. Personally, I think their coffee tastes like ass, and everything else is too overpriced for it to be worth it.

But, there are two little exceptions.

One, is the glorious Pumpkin Spice Latte, which rocks my October. I still only treat myself to one or two (sometimes three), because they are wicked expensive. But so very very tasty.

And two, is the fan-frickin-tabulous Gingerbread Latte, which comes out the millisecond Halloween is over. Again, I typically only indulge a few times, but mmmmm. The $3.85 I paid for my small (which is called a Tall, never really got that) is totally worth it today. I got it frappuccino-ized too, because it's hot-hot-hot today. Global warming is here, and I'm battling it with my Gingerbread Latte/Frappuccino.

Speaking of the environment, I had to fight the grocery lady today. She wanted to give me THREE bags for: one container of soy milk, two boxes of cereal, five apples and four bananas. Are you serious!?!? AND, the lady at Target DID give me THREE BAGS for three bottles of apple juice. Umm... what?!?!?!?!?

Ladies... you two are the reason the planet is in trouble. Hooooly shit.

Rant over.

Moral of the story:

Today, I am thankful for Gingerbread Lattes. Yummy!

We call Starbucks...FourBucks...cause' that's what it costs to get anything there (specially if you need soy) Their coffee is damned bad...ick. But, fortunately their mixed drinks are heavenly...which is probably because the flavoring they put in there masks the ass flavor that they roast all their beans to...

Starbucks hits my peeve button because they make their coffee too weak, but oh how I love pumpkin spice. Yum. I just dicovered the gingerbread latte this past weekend. And then practically assaulted the person I was with, asking her why she had never made me try this before. So tasty -
and she recovered, the wimp.

I am so excited about winning! I've never been to Arizona - so, yay pretty pictures!
