After receiving lots of flack from a certain friend about my Starbucks expenditures (note the June tally in the left column), I have sworn off Starbucks for the month of August. I determined I will not make any purchases at said coffee shop for an entire month. I will be $42.04 richer by September 1st. The only way I will get any Starbucks in me, is if you buy it for me. I am now accepting donations in the form of gift cards, cash, checks and blood platelets. This would also be an excellent opportunity for some of you guys to ask me out. All you have to say is "Laurie, I'm really interested in spending some time with you. Are you available to go to Starbucks this Friday?" I guarantee I will say long as you're buying...and as long as it's August.

You too? I've also given up something! I've given up kissing for one month. The only way I'll kiss is if a guy tries it in the month of August. It is a guaranteed yes. ;)

I'm very proud of you. Starbucks stock just went down based on your blog entry. Why is Starbucks so alluring? Are they selling an image or sweet drink in a cup? Anything that draws us in like that has to be bad. Starbucks is to adults like Mickey D's is to children. If Starbucks put in a Playplace, I'd never leave.
