i am now addicted to Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte (with sugar and whipped cream and the spices shaken on top). i actually got up earlier than normal (meaning: not at the very last minute) to make sure i got my latte. and it is an expensive habit. granted, not as expensive as a crack habit or a smoking habit, but close. let's see...what's the cost of a pack of cigarettes nowadays? $5? okay, if i smoke a pack a day, that habit would be slightly more costly than a Venti latte every morning. but, since i don't get a latte every morning, it's not as expensive, therefore, i have pacified myself and can thus continue with my bad addiction (which rips my stomach out and makes me a tad jumpy). that's what habits are for though...to fuck you up and cost you money.
the pastry at Starbucks sucks big time. the only think that i like, so far, is the pumpkin bread. everything else tastes sour or old. i don't need no stinkin' pastry, just hand over the latte and no one gets hurt.
