The Evil Empire saves the day!

In my eyes, the much-feared recession is over before it ever began. Starbucks has launched a test program for $1 short coffe and free refills. I am not sure if I can stimulate the entire U.S. economy on my own, but I am sure as hell gonna try!

Excellent. Not only will I help you stimulate the economy with $1.00 Starbucks - I will do my part in using sugar and milk until the deficit is gone. That's some strong coffee.

I've given you an award, Evil cubed Genius, since you've given me so much. Oh yeah, you've already added me to the blogroll - scratch that "given me so much" part.

Oh to be back on the caffeine. I had a wonderful love affair with the grande cappuccino. But that was a lifetime ago. I suppose there's decaf still, but it's just not the same.

When I worked for Starbux, all those years ago, they offered the "short" option for everything. They also didn't make the ridiculouslylarge "venti" size.

I think it's a good thing, as is bringing back Howard Schultz, who was a really good man and an inspiring boss.

Suze,

A most gracious thanks for my award.

BSUWG,

I can't even imagine. You brave, brave soul.

Pistols,

Ever vigilant.

Lulu,

The short has always been there, they just kept it of the menu to get you to order more.

Luc,

Hard to imagine, but probably true.

You're such a selfless man. I thank you.

I think I would need to order about 6 of those to make it work. Do I get a bulk discount?

I don't like the short option.

I am in there every day doing my part, but they never seem to discount my Mochas...

I smell a conspiracy.
