Today, after six months of construction, my new neighbor, Starbucks, is open for business. I want to say off the bat that I think it's a great looking building (interior is nice also) and I'd also like to tip my hat to the construction team as they really got this building up in a hurry - I even saw them working on Sundays.
So being that it's the first day of the new Starbucks I had to get one of their first cups and welcome them to the neighborhood. I had the venti (extra large) Pike Place coffee and it was okay, not the best coffee I've ever had. It's named after Seattle's excellent outdoor / indoor downtown market, Pike Place Market. Anyway, I'm not saying it was bad, just not my favorite flavor and I think next time I'll try whatever their daily coffee selection is. I don't drink any of the fancy euro coffee drinks (especially as most of them have dairy in them, although I guess I could have some of them with soymilk), but I do like to try different types of coffee (with one or two packs of Splenda, depending on the size of the cup) and not having been into a Starbucks in awhile, I was happy to see that all of their drinks aren't $5.00 (mine cost $2.10). I don't know if they're doing this for everyone who comes in and buys a coffee (or for how long they'll be doing this), but they gave me a 2.5oz bag of a blend called Caffe Verona Bold (and they gave me that before I introduced myself as the owner of the comic store a stone's throw from them) so I'll be trying that at the house tomorrow morning.
I've only been drinking coffee since I turned 35 a few years ago and generally I'll just have one cup when we wake up to get a kick start on the day, but every once in a while I'll have another cup at some other part of the day - I'm crazy that way! To date I haven't found that one kind of coffee that is a favorite, so maybe with Starbucks being a hop and a skip from my store, through them I'll discover my elusive, favorite can't-live-without coffee blend!

I don't know what would bore me more; watching a game of football or a game of baseball, but I've liked movies about baseball ( Fie...
