(Wow, what an experience! I guess I am an escapist, as this aspect of consumer culture is totally new to me. Not only can I hear the barista “up-selling? (is that what it’s called?: “You know a ‘Venti’ (???) is only 50 cents more…?), but I just got offered a free sample of a tangerine frappuccino blended cream…. thing. It tastes like baby aspirin. Oh geez… now he’s outside wandering the sidewalk offering tangerine cream things from a tray… my god. And there was lots of Marley going on. He asked if the music was too loud and explained to me that they like to “jam out? every once in a while. Now we’re back to smooth jazz…)

BP just announced that they are rebuilding the pipe line from the north slope to your door. Anyway I thought that was interesting as you spent more to fuel your car on your trip than you are spending to fuel yourself. I suppose that is typical of Americans, whos priorities are all out of whack. Anyways the Soki was free but the beer was at the very least $8.00.
