Theme Song

powered by ODEO

If I were to have a TV show, I think this song would be its theme song.

'To All The Kids'

To all the kids with
Headgear and braces and freckly faces (Wa-oo wa-oo)
Glasses and acne and foster care families (Wa-oo wa-oo)
Eating disorders who sit on the corners (Wa-oo wa-oo)
Bikes with a basket and pants with elastic

Retards and spastics and Star Trek fanatics (Wa-oo wa-oo)
And guys in gymnastics with lives that are tragic (Wa-oo wa-oo)
Chess club contenders with speculative genders (Wa-oo wa-oo)
Friends they imagine with matching pajamas
(God loves us all)

More proof I'm a geek.

'And technically, their is no term for more than one Pegasus, as it is a specific mythical creature. It would be akin to saying Medusas, or Medusae.'

That was my comment on one of Kate's posts.

Love it.

'Groups including Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and ACLU of Colorado released a statement saying, in part, "With his ignorance on the subject, Congressman Beauprez has provided yet another example why health care decisions should be made by a woman, in consultation with her doctor, her family and her conscience, not by the government or politicians."'


It is like watching a train wreck.

Some of these people are deluded and think they are the poo. It's kind of disturbing at times, but you can't turn away.

Pants Off Dance Off:

'Not every idea has to be smart to make it on TV. Sometimes stupid works, too.

At the end of busy days in his New York production office, Tad Low will sometimes crank the music loud for his staff to take a dance break. One day someone observed, "How hilarious would this be if we did this in the nude?"

From that offhand remark came "Pants-Off Dance-Off," which has quickly become the Fuse network's most popular series ever. No more complicated than its title, the competition features people dancing in front of a screen playing their favorite music video, while slowly shedding clothes.

"Why hasn't anybody put naked people and rock music together on television before?" said Low, who created the "Pop-Up Videos" series for VH1. "It seems so obvious, like peanut butter and jelly."

Five dancers are featured in each show, from Tuesday through Friday at 10 p.m. ET, and viewers vote online for each night's favorite. Those choices then compete in Saturday's "dance-off." The series is in repeats now until the second season starts Sept. 26.'

Libeskind's Plan For Civic Center

Click Image To Enlarge

Libeskind unveiled his plans for revitalizing Civic Center, and I have to say, I think it's garish in its modernity. The successful juxtaposition of Modern and Classic elements in architecture, is a tricky balancing act, and I think his plan fails miserably. It seems disjointed next to the existing Beaux Arts design.

Denver Infill has the best images of the plan.

I like his design for the Art Museum extension, but his Museum Residences next door, are butt ugly. They look like modern 'project'-type buildings. If they approve his plan, that whole area is going to be one funky, angular vision.

Urban Legends - School Edition

Random, interesting, little time waster of a quiz here on common school myths like:

'In 1981 the United States Congress cut $1 billion from child-nutrition funding and gave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just 90 days to develop new standards for school lunches that would cut costs but not nutritional value. At the time, the FDA required that lunches consist of milk, bread, meat, and two servings of fruits or vegetable.'

Robert Best is the bees knees.

In my inbox today, I was pleasantly surprised to get a message from future husband, Robert Best:

From: Robert

thankyou. Very nice of you to write. I have been busy back at Barbie and lots of amazing offers, so we'll see what happens. Thanks again, people like you made the whole experience worthwhile in the end. See you on the reunion show.:-)

Robert Best

Which is funny, because Helen got a message from him too recently.

Best of luck Robert!

'She is toe up. Our stock would plummet.'

TMZ has video of Tara not being allowed in Hyde, while Paris breezes right by.

Paula Abdul - Blotto, or not blotto?

She could have said worse.

CNN 'LIVE From ...' the ladies room?

NEW YORK (AP) - Kyra Phillips, anchor of CNN's "Live From...," unwittingly upstaged President Bush's speech in New Orleans with on-the-air analysis of her husband and the marriage of her brother - all live from a CNN ladies room.

Unaware that her wireless microphone was "live" during her break, Phillips could be heard overriding Bush's prepared address Tuesday as he was seen marking the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

The Atlanta-based Phillips, in conversation with an unidentified woman in an echoey room, dismissed most men with a vulgar term, but called herself "very lucky in that regard. My husband is handsome and he is genuinely a loving - you know, no ego - you know what I'm saying? Just a really passionate, compassionate, great, great human being. And they exist. They do exist. They're hard to find. Yup. But they are out there."

A few moments later, she observed that "brothers have to be, you know, protective. Except for mine. I've got to be protective of him."

Why? "His wife is just a control freak."

At that point, another voice cut in: "Kyra."

"Yeah, baby?" replied Phillips on hearing her name.

"Your mike is on. Turn it off. It's been on the air."

CNN anchor Daryn Kagan, looking flustered, then broke into the telecast with a recap of what Bush had been saying.

Maybe it's his new thing since Paramount dropped him.

Man steals Rx during tours

ARAPAHOE COUNTY - Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man who steals prescription drugs while visiting open houses.

Elton John Gets Gangsta On Yo Ass

Elton John wants to make hip-hop album

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Goodbye yellow brick road, hello hip hop.

Elton John tells Rolling Stone magazine that he wants to record a hip-hop album with Grammy-winning producer Dr. Dre.

'I want to work with Pharrell, Timbaland, Snoop, Kanye, Eminem and just see what happens,' John says in the Sept. 7 issue. 'It may be a disaster, it could be fantastic, but you don't know until you try.'

The 59-year-old says he is a fan of Blackstreet's "No Diggity" and Tupac Shakur's 'California Love.'

'I want to bring my songs and melodies to hip-hop beats,' John says. 'I love these beats, but I have no idea how to get them.'

John performed Eminem's song 'Stan' with the rapper during the 2001 Grammy awards.

John's new album, 'The Captain and the Kid,' is due in September.

'But if I knew where my husband was, I'd like to know. Because I would like a divorce. How, very Jerry Springer of me. I just want my implants."

A flash mob takes over a NYC Home Depot

'She said there's too much caffeine in your bloodstream'

I was awake early this morning and contemplated going in to work early. But then I thought, what's the point? It's not like if I go in early, I get to leave early. Even though I haven't taken a lunch all week, my boss would still have issues if I were to depart before my scheduled time.

So, I take my time getting ready for the day, and leave my domicile.

On the way in, my mp3 player's battery dies.


I look in my backpack. I'm out of batteries! Now I have to stop somewhere to buy batteries. Curses! Additional time out of my morning trek. I stop by Russel's and complete my purchase without incident.

Soon after, I make a stop at Einstein's, because I was having serious gastronomical rumblings. [I drank coffee on an empty stomach and I needed something to nosh, or I would wretch].

Lo and behold, there was a major line.

Normally, I would have skipped it, but my stomach told me to suffer through. I join the queue, when all of a sudden, one of the staff comes by with a newfangled, Blackberry type, device to take my order.

'Sundried Tomato bagel, toasted, with plain cream cheese, on the side, to go'.

'Cool', I thought. Maybe it won't be so bad.

I get to the counter, pay, and wait for my order. What do I get? A poppyseed bagel, un-toasted, with the cream cheese all up in it, 'for here'. How does Sundried tomato sound like poppyseed? It was almost the antithesis of what I had ordered.

Again, normally, I would have gone all diva on their asses, and make a big stink, forcing them to remake my order, but I wanted to be able to enjoy the fact, that this was one morning I didn't have to rush to make it to work on time. For, at least, it wasn't an onion bagel.

I make them bag it, whilst grumbling to myself, feeling my rage, boil and simmer.

I begrudgingly take my bagel and leave.

I get on the shuttle, and what do I see? Not one, but two people in wheelchairs. 'Oh great, there goes more time', I think to myself. Of course, both of the wheelchair people had to get off at different stops. Fuggers. [It takes a while for the shuttle operator to get out and deploy the ramp so wheelchairs can exit].

By now, my early morning lead, had delved in to a mad rush to make it to the station on time.

All this time, I am getting more, and more, livid.

It's then that I think to myself, 'you know, in the grand scheme of things, I am being ridiculous'.

People in Africa are killing each other over charity-donated food, and wishing for a pot to piddle in, and here I am getting all pissed off for having the wrong bagel to eat for the morning, and handicapped people making me late.

But then I think to myself, this is the privilege of the American life; being able to sweat the small stuff.

And then blog about it.

God Bless America.

Anderson Cooper On John Karr's Mugshot

'Here's his most recent mugshot from Boulder. He's lit from below. Not very flattering'

Later about Pluto not being a planet anymore:

'It doesn't look that small'.

--Anderson Cooper - As just stated on 360 Anderson Cooper 'Keeping Them Honest'

I dunno. Something smells fishy to me; if he actually did it. I kind of get the feel that he is just a morbid stalker. Although it's pretty evident he has a thing for young girls, I think it's some weird form of celebrity-seeking in work here. We'll see how this plays out.


Ever since I got my new computer, I have been riddled with headaches. I could only stare at the monitor for an hour, before I had to get up, and take a walk [which is good to do anyway].

But by the end of the day, I would have one major, honkin' headache.

So I just played with the contrast and brightness on the monitor, and I can already feel the relief. I had way to much contrast going on, thus, my eyes were having a hard time making things out; causing eye strain.

This all came about when I had to re-set up all my preferences that resulted from the computer change.

I feel dumb because, I knew better. I did a whole study on contrast as it replies to senior citizens, in regards to Senior Healthcare Design.

That's why my blog is light text on a dark background. For all us agin' folks out there.

I'm sure this is all over the 'nets...

but this is the first I have seen 'em.

Armor Of God Pajamas

No way!

Finally found this. It's Natasha Bedingfield and her bro, Daniel Bedingfield ['Gotta Get Through This' guy], performing Chaka Khan's 'Ain't Nobody' at the Brits in 2005. The Brits are more entertaining for me than the VMA's. Probably because I don't listen to hip hop.

I actually feel awake this morning.

Not going to be able to post much though. Busy.

South Bronx

For some odd reason, maybe it's part of my Infill obsession, but I am intrigued with images of the Bronx back in the 70's and early 80's. It's amazing to think how in contemporary history, there could be such blight in an American city.

NYC In Legos


Thank god my mortgage has a cap of 12%, and I have already begun paying off the principle.

'At some point (sooner, rather than later), there will be a housing-finance-related 'accident,'due to an incendiary combination of housing debt and derivatives. That is what lies ahead. What remains to be seen is exactly when the financial bomb gets detonated.

Meanwhile, though this mess has just started, the end game is (and has been) very predictable, as the story states: 'Some borrowers are opting to sell homes they can no longer afford.' Unfortunately, folks like the accountant from Detroit are going to find that as this occurs, there won't be enough buyers, as many people will need to sell.

The inevitable scenario: 'Some California brokers say they are beginning to see a return of 'short sales'- transactions in which the sales price isn't large enough to cover outstanding loans.''

Paramount Cuts Ties With Cruise Company

'It's Tom Cruise vs. Sumner Redstone in a case of I quit-you're fired at Hollywood's highest level. On one side is the chairman of Viacom, Inc., which owns Paramount Pictures. On the other is the industry's biggest and most bankable star, whose last seven films have each generated over $100 million.

Redstone said Tuesday that Paramount would sever its long and profitable relationship with Cruise/Wagner Productions, Cruise's company with producing partner Paula Wagner. Redstone told the Wall Street Journal that Cruise's 'recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount.'

'As much as we like him personally,' Redstone is quoted as saying, 'we thought it was wrong to renew his deal.' He then cited Cruise's "recent conduct" as the reason.

In the past year or so, Cruise couch-hopped on Oprah Winfrey's talk show while proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes, criticized the use of antidepressants and claimed that postpartum depression doesn't exist. He also got into an angry exchange with Matt Lauer on the 'Today' show while defending his opinions.'

Somewhat oldie, but goodie.

I wondered why I was getting all these referrals from AOL Digital City on my web stats. Looks like they mentioned me yesterday. Howdy y'all.

Some mornings......

I feel like it would be a viable option to be homeless and panhandle, instead of having to get up and go to work. I loathe mornings.

Pee Wee's Tip Of The Day

He needs to take Pete Doherty with him.

Keane Singer Tom Chaplin Goes Into Rehab

'LONDON -- A planned U.S. tour by Keane has been postponed while singer Tom Chaplin is being treated for drug and alcohol addiction, the British band said Tuesday.

In a statement posted on the band's Web site, Chaplin, 27, said he was "having to deal with an increasing problem with drink and drugs, and the time has come to get the professional help I need to sort myself out."

The tour had been due to start in Chicago on Sept. 7.

"I feel desperately disappointed to be letting down our fans, but I want to get myself right now so that I can be back on the road for the rest of the year," Chaplin said.

Keane had already canceled several appearances, citing Chaplin's "exhaustion."

The trio released their melodic debut album, "Hopes and Fears," in 2004. Their second album, "Under the Iron Sea," entered the British album charts at No. 1 when it was released in June.'

'YouTube is the No. 1 video'movie destination on the Internet, garnering 11 million unique visitors for the week ending August 6, more than twice that of No. 2 destination and more than four times that of, which is No. 3 on the list, according to Nielsen-NetRatings.'

Lame, if you ask me.

As a kid I remember people smoking in movie theaters, and even at their desk at work!

'LONDON - Turner Broadcasting is scouring more than 1,500 classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons, including old favorites Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo, to edit out scenes that glamorize smoking.

The review was triggered by a complaint to British media regulator Ofcom by one viewer who took offence to two episodes of Tom and Jerry shown on the Boomerang channel, part of Turner Broadcasting which itself belongs to Time Warner Inc.'


On the way in to work today, I was listening to 'Jump In The River' by Sinead O'Connor, and heard lyrics I never noticed before:

'There's been days like this before you know
And I liked it all
Like the times we did it so hard
There was blood on the wall'


Holy Moley

I got the new issue of 'W' in the mail yesterday, and it's ginormous! The magazine is already oversized compared to others, but add an additional 300 pages of ads to it, and it resembles those old encyclopedias I had back in elementary school.

Christina Ricci looks great in her spread.

Lack of posts.

I was pretty busy on Friday, and I had horrid sleep last night. So all day, I have been suffering with a steady, dull, pain in my head. I can barely type; much less post.

So, I am going home, taking a shower, throwing in the DVDs for 'The 4400' I got from Netflix, and going to bed early, in hopes of being somewhat normal tomorrow.

Osama Loves Whitney

'Boof says bin Laden couldn't stop talking about his favorite singer and had lofty plans for her. "He said he wanted to give [her] a mansion that he owned in a suburb of Khartoum. He explained to me that to possess Whitney, he would be willing to break his color rule and make her one of his wives."

But bin Laden's murderous side also emerged in his fantasies about the pop superstar. "[He would say] how beautiful she is," Boof claims, "what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and by her husband - Bobby Brown, whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have womens' husbands killed.

"In his briefcase, I would come across photographs of the Star [magazine], as well as copies of Playboy. It would soon come to the point where I was sick of hearing Whitney Houston's name," Boof writes.'

Scissor Sisters - Don't Feel Like Dancing

The new single off the new album. Elton John helped write, and plays piano on it.

Keane - Crystal Ball

The latest single from Keane. Very Coldplay-ish. I actually didn't like it at first, but I eventually warmed up to their new album, Under The Iron Sea.

Robot Chicken

Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network has this bizarre show called Robot Chicken. They take toys and make skits out of them.

Some of the sketches are pretty funny. The show is actually produced by Seth Green. They manage to get celebs to participate. They made a spoof of Cannonball Run, and even got Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluise to do voice overs.

Maybe if you're high...

it would look like the Virgin Mary.

Alisongate - Andy Speaks!

Andy, a VP of Programming for Bravo, has this to say about last night's Runway:

'I am not going to defend the decision last night by the judges. When I saw the rough cut of the episode I called Nina Garcia to ask her what the judges were thinking.

She told me how awful the dress looked going down the runway and how the panel all were disgusted by how the model looked from head to toe, and that it was Alison's fault for doing this to her model.

I am bummed out for the show that Alison is gone. She was one of my picks to go to fashion week. So the question becomes -- why choose Vincent over Alison? My answer is, "I don't know."

The naysayers today will say that Vincent is great TV and that's why he's still on. IS HE, though? Would you rather watch Vincent than Alison? I personally would not. If it were up to me, I would've gotten rid of Vincent in Episode One with that lampshade on the model.'

Consumerist - Tips To Save Money

[Click to enlarge]

Consumerist posted this tip list of money saving tips, that was given to potentially laid-off Northwest Airlines employees. The list is unintentionally funny, as if you followed the list to a tee, you would be one miserly cheapskate.

So it in inspired me to add additional tips in the comments, and lo and behold, fellow commenters joined in. Yay!

Queen And Shaun Of The Dead

BBC is playing Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now' on the radio, and it forever reminds me of the scene in 'Shaun Of The Dead', where that song is on the jukebox, and they are beating a zombie to the beat. That movie is genius.

Bad Photo

If I was Greg Behrendt, I wouldn't release such a photo for a press release. Yikes.

Angie Paccione

She is running for Congress, against douchebag, Marilyn Musgrave. Paccione actually used to be my Western Civ. teacher at Smoky Hill, back in the day. She was a bad ass teacher, who made classes interesting. I hope she wins. Her District would be better off.

Angie Paccione For Congress


'Suwat quoted Karr as saying he tried to kidnap JonBenet for a $118,000 ransom but that his plan went awry and he strangled her. Patsy Ramsey reported finding a ransom note in the house demanding $118,000 for her daughter.

'He said it was second-degree murder. He said it was unintentional,' Suwat said. He said Karr told Thai interrogators that he picked JonBenet up at her school and brought her to the family’s basement.'

What I don't get, is why she was at school the day after Christmas. Most schools are on holiday.

And if you were going to kidnap someone, why would you take them back to their house?

Did he kill her accidentally, and figure that if he returned her home, it would look like an accident? And why 118k?


Alison, I know this world, is killing you.

Alison was purdy. Too bad she got auf'd. I liked the concept of her dress. But it did look like a 'paper brioche'. I can't believe they kept Vincent. He's insane in the membrane; and not in a good way.

As for Kayne's dress, yeesh. Horrid. But he knew that.

I must say, Kayne, and future husband, Robert, cracked me up. They are quite entertaining. Hopefully they stick around for a while.

You have to check out the extra videos at the Runway website.

Jeffrey's dress wasn't bad, but he is still an arse. I loved the look on his face when Michael won, again.

This deserves it's own post.

In my inbox:

'The person killed is my sister. The person airlifted is my mom. My mom is still in ICU in Wyoming. It is still touch and go. The stretch of road in Thermopolis is lined with crosses.

It is a narrow, uneven stretch of road. It is not a regular stretch of road. It was a freak accident that is sad all around. I am just devastated by it all, most devastating is that my sister was a generous, kind person who treated others well and volunteered for many charities.

She doesn't deserve to be remembered by glib little comments made by folks who do not know the whole story! How about finding out about a person before you post something.

Kathy Pena'

She did not leave an email address for a response, so this is it. While I chalk up her reaction to the post as a result of her loss, and feel sorry for the incident and its effects, she totally misread my post.

I was not being 'glib'. I merely stated a fact that indeed, our Driver's Ed class told us to NOT brake, or swerve, for small animals because they can cause fatal accidents. I even commented that the incident was 'sad'. In fact, that's the only reason why I posted that article in the first place.

I hardly think I was being 'glib', and I can be glib, believe me.

Janet Rowland - Ignoramus

She's Republican Bob Beuprez's running mate for Governor.

'Welker is the retiring state representative who gained infamy by saying Colorado needed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, because otherwise, people might marry their dog or horse.

In the March appearance on Rocky Mountain PBS, Rowland added sheep.

'For some people, the alternative lifestyle is bestiality,' Rowland said. 'Do we allow a man to marry a sheep?'

'I think (same-sex couples) already have those rights they are trying to get,' she told me. 'I think (the initiative) is trying to get their foot in the door to legalize gay marriage.

It's really not about the benefits. And when did marriage become about getting life insurance or health insurance or any of those other benefits?

People can leave their property to whoever they want and be visited in the hospital by whoever they want. People can give custody of their children when they die to whoever they want. And they don't need additional protections to do that.'

Big Brother All Stars - Janelle Is Stoopid

She should have put up James, or Boogie, or Dr. Will. She's not my fave anymore.

James is like a cancerous, lying tumor, that needs to be extracted. And Allison, and Robert, producers for the show; if you ever suggest/show Boogie being naked, I will poke my eyes out with a flaming kebab skewer, and sue you for personal damages.

[This post makes me feel like the comic book guy from The Simpsons].

Big Brother All Stars - Dr. Will

Dr. Will just made a comment about hurting 'the family jewels', during the mechanical bull competition for veto. Good. Maybe he won't be able to reproduce.

Further proof that people are grody.

Those of you who are easily grossed out by bodily functions, should skip this post!!

I made a pit stop to the lavatory before leaving work for the day.

Upon using the urinal, instead of the detergent-chemical smell of the urinal cake, a different scent wafted violently, from the urinal. It was the funkiest mutant smell of man spunk I had ever encountered.

Now, I'm thinking to myself, 'some dude, didn't really just rub one out in the urinal, did they?.'

I look closer, and see that there are short and curlies, on the lip of the urinal. [Dude, you can buy a pair of clippers for $20 to take care of your molting problem].

Now, I don't mind if you have to 'do the deed'. At least make an effort to flush so I, and other innocent victims, don't have to smell your mutant seed, when we are just trying to relieve the pressure. Seriously, that was one smell I never want to smell again. Thinking about it...blegh....can't finish sentence.

The worst part of it is, I think it was the guy who was leaving the lavatory, as I was entering. He was the only one in there.

And since his curtains matched the color of the carpet samples on the urinal, I am pretty sure it's him.

So now I am going to be cursed every time I see him, with the mental image, and smell, of him pudding the thud.

Maybe it's kismet, as on Helen's blog, the topic of masturbation came up. Plus, I posted about that mastubation-a-thon.

Another reason Big Brother UK is better than ours.

They have a guy, Pete, on the show, who has Tourette's. Imagine living with this for over two months.

He reminds me of Ren.

Desperate Housewives - Spoilers!

So it looks like Shawn Pyfrom's character, Andrew, has a bout of homelessness in the upcoming season.

'Walking down Cahuenga Boulevard I noticed a homeless kid who looked extremely familiar. As he got got closer, I noticed that it was Shawn 'Andrew' Pyfrom from Desperate Housewives.

Turns out they were filming DH in the alleys and Shawn's homeless look is what we have to look forward to. He looked great, very personable (said hello to me as I walked by), tight little body and new shaved head that makes him look a lot older and hotter.'

He's legal, so I can say I'd hit that. Especially if he has shaved his head and is maturing.


This song cracks me up now.

Ack! So I have to admit, I like Wings. But some talking head on Vh1 recently pointed out, how lame some of their songs are. Jack FM just played 'Let 'Em In'. The lyrics are retardedly simple. Paul McCartney was just phoning it in, when he wrote this:

Wings - Let' em In

Someone's knockin' at the door
somebody's ringin' the bell

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell

Do me a favor open the door and let'em in.

Sister Suzie

Open the door and let'em in.

Fatal Attraction - Alternate Ending

'Original ending had Alex committing suicide while dressed in white, and Dan being arrested for her murder. Dan's wife, while looking for the phone number of her husband's lawyer, finds a cassette tape recorded by Alex in which she states her intention to commit suicide.

The wife runs out of the house with the tape (presumably going to the police) and the film ends with a flashback of Alex slashing her throat in the bathroom while listening to "Madame Butterfly".

When preview audiences hated this ending, a new one was shot (where Alex is killed by Dan's wife with a gun). The original ending still appears in the Japanese release and was added to the US video and laser editions.'


Pretty In Pink's Original Ending

'The original ending to this film depicted Duckie getting the girl, however the test audiences said they would have preferred to see Blane win Andie's heart.

Additionally, Molly Ringwald was sick during the filming of the ending, and John Hughes wasn't satisfied with the editing. He was also concerned that audiences would take the original ending as a message that poor people and rich people don't belong together.

When the ending was re-shot, all of the principal actors had to be called back. Andrew McCarthy had already lost a substantial amount of weight and shaved his head for a new role in a New York play called "The Boys of Winter". Although he wore an auburn wig, he's noticeably more gaunt in the re-shot scenes.'


Free Starbucks

Denver Shenanigans is going to love this. A coworker was making a Starbucks run, and I wanted something with flavor to counteract the tartness of my salad. So I asked said coworker to get me a Vanilla Blended Frappuccino Creme.

When the coworker comes back, he says that the peeps at the store had no idea what I was talking about. So they made a blended concoction of vanilla, ice, and milk.

Duh. That's what it is supposed to be.

But the best part, is they decided to not charge me for it, since they didn't know if that's what I wanted. Coworker explained to them that I am pretty picky, so maybe persnickety-ness does pay off sometimes.
