Sbux coffee break

Starbucks saving mankind: Mar 15 (tomorrow), it’ll host a "coffee break" (its "first-ever")*, wherein it’ll give away free 12-oz cupsa coffee 10 am - noon. At stores and also employees’ll be on the streets dispensing cups via "giant coffee backpacks". Coincidentally, the chain is simultaneously launching its "annual brewing sale" wherein you can buy coffeemakers at low-low prices. But really that’s just a coincidence, that it happens at the same time. FREE BREWED COFFEE (not instant!?!) I mean, what a wonderful altruistic campaign

OK, I'm here to show solidarity with my Scientologerrrrrific friend Isaac Hayes. Slap me some skin, my nigga!

The Man and his chocolate salty balls are finally quitting South Park, after yet another episode that makes fun of Scientology. Enough is enough, my brotha! I so have your back!

You'll also note that the episode stars none other than ME. (I don't want to spoil it, but I get to hide in a closet. Fun!) While we're all sad to see Chef leave the quiet mountain town, get ready for Chef du Cruise-ine, Thomas! That's right, I've signed up for several episodes and will be serving up hash and advice to the lovable muffins of South Park. What a plum gig!

I wasn't going to comment, but my verification word is MUMAWA,and so I had to!
So, did Starbucks pick their slowest time to give free coffee? I mean why not between 7:00 and 9:00, if they're going to do it? Who goes for coffee just before lunch??

Boy, for someone who "wasn't going to comment" but then "had to" because she likes her word verification, that clairevoyant sure ended up being pretty chatty!

What a thoroughly laughable, self-centered little mongrel! I'm quite sure no one had it in mind to say that.

Thanks for the tip. I get coffee in the AM - now if only they wouldhave a free wi-fi day, I might actually start going to Starbucks regularly.

At my Starbucks, at Preston & Forest, any size coffee was free this morning! So, why wait till 10am.

So, get thee to a Starbucks, or in Paris' case, a nunnery would be better.
