To wit: It’s back! It’s back! My Starbucks seasonal coffee monkey is back on… my back. Hmmph. That could have come out better but I don’t care!
Tuesday afternoon, I was heading downtown to visit my academic adviser to pick next semester’s classes1. I was really early so I popped over to pick up a cup of coffee and finish listening to the podcast I was listening to2… and then I saw it. Starbucks, all decked out in red and silver trimming.
I’m pretty sure I did a little dance as I waited, all the while, thinking, Peppermint mocha! No, wait, gingerbread latte! No! The eggnog one! Yeah! No, wait!
I eventually settled on the eggnog one — and it was just as good as I remembered it being.
And now, before you know it, it’ll be time to hang my new favorite tree ornament:

- File on 4’s podcast about racism in the justice system in Texas. It was an awesome piece of journalism and I suggest you all listen to it: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/file_on_4/7064473.stm [↩]
