Today I've learned
Friday. 4.18.08 9:27 pm
that drinking Starbucks coffee, regardless of not you actually like the COFFEE, makes you a corporate whore. Even though the coffee is 7-11 coffee, there apparently isn't much difference between being a Starbucks-coffee-drinking-corporate-whore and a 7-11-coffee-drinking-corporate-whore. Go figure. I'll have to go to the yardsale and buy the espresso machine and the 4 cup manual brewer... so I won't be so darn copro-tacular. (yes, I do mean the prefix Copro-.) Then I can grow my own free-range 10,000,000% organic not-harvested-by-small-children-or-animals-or-illegal-immigrants free-trade(can't forget that!) no-preservatives-added roasted-5-femtoseconds-before-brewing-in-a-uselessly-expensive-roaster-and-then-ground-for-10-femtoseconds-in-a-uselessly-expensive-grinder coffee. Or better yet, I can go to one of the MANY local shops that are totally full of themselves, and get a cup of coffee there. Yes, that is what I will do.

Instead of asserting my pretention by going to 7-11 because it is closer and their coffee is cheap-ish and not half bad, or going to Starbucks and paying 2.15 for not 2.15 worth of coffee, I will start walking to all of the far away-local-indie-stuck up-superiority complex-ZOMGAH CORPORATIONS ARE EVILE-tacular shops. The kind where I need to be wearing something made of hemp to get in, and have a combo of at least 15 anti-(bush/war/corporation) pro-band save-the-pandas salvar-la-bahia bumperstickers on my super-duper gas-guzzling heap from the 1960s.

Also, some people have fucking obnoxious laughter.

I'm 99% sure that after this semester, when most everyone has graduated, I will probably just disappear. It'll be like high school all over again. I'm fucking tired of "zomg I am better than you"/"zomg it is not really like that"/"zomg i am sooooo awesome(and not in the healthy self-esteem sort of way)" bullshit. I'm really tired of just rolling my eyes and not saying anything. Though, now that I think about it, I'll still have my nutang... that I plan to keep, so if people cared enough, they could stalk me... but I probably wouldn't reply. Oh well.

yeah.. ppl always acted like that... lol but law always come w loop hole

I totally agree with you. I'd rather drink chinese tea or green tea in a can than spending so much on Starbucks unless the situation really needs me to spend so much on Starbucks.

I also agree with you that we still have nutang regardless of how suckky life turns out to be.

I would rather support the lil guys. You know the hard working lil cafes that struggle to sell you a decent coffee. Starbucks is too commercial and too expensive. I was shocked in Malaysia to find one Green tea frapp was RM22!! Which converts to $7.

Thankfully I don't drink coffee, so I don't have to deal with all that drama.

Hm, I've never tried the citrus ones. Are they any good?
» randomjunk on 2008-04-19 11:09:53

Pomegranate's definitely good. :D Strawberry seems to vary a bit. The first box I had was better than the second. Depends on taste though. :P
» randomjunk on 2008-04-19 11:53:09

mmmmmmmmm coffee.... try dunkin donuts its on the same scale as starbucks but it doesnt have the bitter-gotta-brush- my-teeth-a-billion-times after taste to it.

hey, got a question here. so, how do you think there is a css for viewwing the chinease?
» kevin14 on 2008-04-20 10:32:07

I'm not a big fan of Starbuck's coffee, but I love their passionberry lemonaide iced tea.

I actually live closer to the hippie coffee shop than Starbuck's, so I go there.

I think Starbuck's is fair-trade, too, though?
