Love You a Latte

Wednesday is my last day at Starbucks. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Um yeah, I’m a little excited to be done barista-ing.  I loved the people, it was nice to have some extra spending money, but it’s definitely time to be done, and time to refocus… (A card I made for the girlies at Starbucks) It’s time to refocus […]

Saturday

All day fun at the Starbucks.  It was Happy Hour from 3-5, wherein all frappuccinos were half price… and I was the only barista working. I’m recuperating with some serious lounging time and the tv shows I’m behind on… Bones, Grey’s, The Office, 30 Rock, and whatever other mind-numbing things I can find before I […]

Starbucks News

Several things to report on the ‘Bux front, so we’ll do this in pieces… 1. New merchandise launching on Tuesday!  Lots of summer tumblers, and the highly coveted “reusable cold cup” is back.  Do NOT wait if you are hoping to buy one of these.  When we got our shipment at Christmas, we sold out […]

The Least Exciting Type of Shoes to Buy

Alternatively Titled: How I Can Justify Any Purchase During work on Tuesday, I was helping the Food Ave guy put a new bucket of oil underneath the popcorn machine.  It’s crazy heavy, has to be moved with the lid off, and is incredible awkward to lift.  There’s a heating element that has to be fitted […]

Thursday Night Stream of Consciousness

Well, first off – glad to hear the Haiku Reviews are a hit! 🙂  I also love that YellowBunnies added a few of her own.  I may have to make this a regular feature and encourage submissions.  (Random benefit from the haiku format – I got to prove NavyGuy wrong when he argued that the […]

Diary of a Mad, Mad Coffee Stand Pt. 2

The week continues.  Painfully. Tuesday – Our weekly order of supplies doesn’t arrive until after lunch, so I have to get it all put away before I leave at 3:30, and of course, it’s a huge, heavy order with tons of 5 lb bags of coffee that need to be hoisted up on flimsy shelving […]

Diary of a Mad, Mad Coffee Stand

So, my immediate boss at Starbucks is on vacation this week.  She left me in charge, meaning I’m working 8 hours a day, Monday-Thursday, and aside from the regular coffee-making tasks, I also have to do the managery stuff, (paperwork, dealing with the order, and worrying about everything).  Good fun. I’ve survived one day so […]

The Latest From Your Friendly Neighborhood Starbucks

Tuesday was a big launch for Starbucks, with a new drink, lots of new merchandise, and a renewed focus on coffee (even a new way to brew coffee!). It’s a lot to take in and as your unofficial Sbux guide, I thought I should highlight a few things so you’re not completely bowled over the […]

Tuesday

First off, whoa people. Whoa. It’s just a pig. Can the pig-lovers and bacon-eaters find a way to get along? P.S. I love when posts about tea-cup pigs get more comments than an entire week’s worth of posts about my actual life. I should really stick to the inane more often. 🙂 Moving on, I […]
