I'm not as good as Dennis Leary at ranting. Nor as 'What's the deal with...' as Jerry Seinfeld. Nor as snarky as Bill Mahr. (Remember when he was an 'actor'? Those were the days!)

But there's a fundamental fact that I just can't let go...

Coffee Bean sugar-free nonfat lattes have 50 more calories than Starbucks sugar-free nonfat lattes.

You know why? Because they use this crappy sugar-free powder instead of normal sugar free syrup with no calories.

So if I was just to go about my normal business and think 'sugar-free, nonfat - that means it's just 2 cups of nonfat milk' I'd be WRONG. OH SO WRONG. Because the main ingredient on their sugar-free powder is CREAM. That's right..powdered MILK. Not NONFAT. So in essence by making my latte sugar-free, I negated the nonfat option!

Yes, I know. No snarky Bill Mahr. No swearing a la Leary. But just about as irritating as someone stealing my marble rye.

Finally, a rant that puts Starbucks in a good light. Woohoo!

Long time no chat. Still watching Lost? Last week's episode was one of most favorite of all time.

I'm basically a starbucks whore, egan...wait, maybe you're being ironic.

Yes! Love it still , despite the shark-jumping aspects.

With my figure, one non-non-fat coffee won't make much difference.

Oh, and... It wasn't me.

/mmm, marble rye...

Where, oh where did our little kitten go?
Where, oh where can she be?

The internet misses you.
