...and having my usual prof. deformation, I skipped the van and looked over the building. Hmmm...rather consistently looking facade, details match, metal fits, proportion consistent.Then I returned to the van. D'oh.Ain't that the truth!
tee hee. I actually considered cropping that pic, but then thought of the possibility of exactly your experience and left it.Atomic Nerds is hilarious! Yes, Starbucks sucks. But I will confess to liking their tiny little vanilla bean scones. Love them and they are just the right size.But still -- tee hee! D'oh!
In all fairness it would seem that the van door is not open all the way. They may have considered things, but only with the door fully closed or full open, which would read SKS. For not considering all options? Still a Fail.
Every smart ass on the planet has immediately figured out how to open that door just sooooo. I would bet on it.HAHAHA!
That Atomic Nerds link is fantastic. I love the angry style -- oh, how I miss Sam Kinison -- but he also has some fabulous turns of phrase, like "and the only flavors left are hate and failure".He's also quite right. I've been roasting my own coffee for years. You can get a good home roaster for about $200, and it actually pays for itself because green coffee beans are about half the price of professionally burnt beans. Coffee is best 1-3 days after roasting, which for logistical reasons you will never get in the supermarket or at Sucks. The 90-day freshness guarantee on store-bought coffee is like a 90-day freshness guarantee on sushi. Are you fucking kidding me? It's disgusting. I throw away my own roasted beans if they're not used within 7 days, which means you can find fresher coffee in my garbage bin than you'll ever find at Sucks.
Wow. I almost never meet anyone who is more of a "foodie" than I am. And I do love my coffee. I buy it locally from a company that roasts theirs daily. Now I'm thinking I need my own roaster.Damn your soul!!! You should see my kitchen. I need another gadget like I need a hole in the head. Or I SHOULD say ANOTHER hole in the head.HAHAHA!
And I know what you mean about sushi. My first sushi was in Japan and I always understood that it was to be eaten no later than the afternoon of the day it was caught. Getting used to eating it over here, stateside, where you know it has to be as least a day old just to make it through the market process to the inland was a little difficult for me. But oh well...I just assume they know what they are doing. I hope.
