That's sweet. I've thought about doing it but I end up over-analyzing (is the person behind me rich? will they appreciate this? do they need it?) and psyche myself out. Maybe tomorrow. ;)

The little speaker icon that used to be on the far right in the taskbar has disappeared. Why? How can I get it back? The settings say to always display it but it is MIA.

sometimes all the little icons over there go to a palate and there is just the one icon for the palate, which I click to see them all.

And how do you know what he's even ordering? Maybe he's just wanting a bagel and and orange juice. And don't the coffee types and prices range from $40 to $350 anyway? Do you just pick one and hope that's what he wanted?

How stupid are you?(That's rhetorical by the way -- OMG we know.) You tell the cashier you want to buy a medium (or large) coffee (or whatever) for the person behind you and they charge you that amount. Whatever the person decides to buy, the cashier will deduct that amount. They pick what they want.

It's not that hard.

"I would like a grande sugar-free hazelnut latter with 3 Splenda, no foam...and whatever he/she <pointing at person waiting behind me> is drinking." Seriously? This was that hard for you to figure out?

Look, I just want my coffee percolated for 30 minutes until it is as black as coal. I want it to pour out like syrup into my cup.
but if you think I am paying more that a buck for that, your flipping crazy.

I had Vietnamese coffee today. I love it so much. It doesn't percolate, it drips, but it's like syrup it's so strong and thick. Of course I *did* pay more than a buck for it. <shrug>

Ugh. I'm going to have a nervous breakdown if I don't make some changes. And believe it or not, this comment has nothing to do with A or Jasper.

Yay! Another day and a half before my president makes sure my taxes go up about four grand a year! So glad we re elected this guy! I'm sure the next four years will bring nothing but prosperity and economic tranquility! Much like the last four years!

Plaid-erday night turned into "get really drunk, hang out with a group of strangers, and watch my non-single friend go home with a guy we just met." Oy vey.

Sunday is going to consist of napping, taking a bubble bath (which I can do with my phone in its Lifeproof case if I want), hanging out with my dogs, and watching football. I'm trying to get motivated to either order lunch, go pick up lunch, or just make a PB&J.
