(1) My drink does not taste any different than it has for the last ten years
(2) I am waiting significantly longer to enjoy it than I did two weeks ago. Last weekend I waited 15 minutes for my drink at the Starbucks on Sierra Madre and Huntington.
Hopefully this is one of those management decisions that will just be reversed.

Is there someone in there?
How long has the person been in there?
It seems like whoever is in there has been in there forever (To this I respond that the door sometimes self locks and they should go get a barista to unlock)
Do I have to go get a key for the restroom (No, there is no key required)
Today after many comments I decided to place a tent card note at my desk stating "Starbucks Bathroom Monitor" after a few minutes I was approached and asked if it was cold inside. I find this an odd question since the person asking was already inside (As opposed to someone inside asking if it was cold outside). In response to this question I added "Temperature Control" to the sign, I also should have added noise monitor since I insisted my favorite Barista turn off the music.

It is rare that we go into the living room as we tend to hang out in the back of the house. The girls both consider the living room a privledge and last week I decided to let Brooke explore it for the first time. Watching both girls crawl (Here is Sydney) through the living room for the first time at 7 months is interesting (for their mom). Both did great but Sydney is so much faster, Brooke is more pensive but I love how both periodically stop and monitor their progess.

*She started creeping around in August but started really crawling in mid September.
*She didn't sit up until right after she started crawling (within a week)
*She loves to stand and has been pulling herself up constantly since the last week of September
*Barely started holding her bottle by herself, everytime I would try to get her to hold it she would stick her hands up over her head (odd I know). She has picked up and held everything else though for a couple months
*No teeth yet
*Likes food but without the teeth is struggling on the finger food
*She couldn't look more like her father

We have more canned goods in the house than we have ever had. (Great for Earthquake prepardness, too bad they were out of water)
The great news is that they had Nutramigen! Nutramigen is the incredibly expensive (and I mean to the tune of $80 bucks a week) formula that Brooke uses. I got $190.00 of Nutrimigen for $95.00-Excellent.
P.S. Unfortunately Vons was out of everything I needed for my meals this week so I had to go to Ralphs and spend another $50 bucks.

Yesterday, Anne Marie and I went for a sushi lunch and along with Salmon and Spicy Tuna Roll I ordered Albacore. I had never ordered Albacore and before it arrived she said "I don't usually get Albacore because you never know if it is going to taste good or not". A less politically correct statement would have been "Run for the hills". It was terrible, I ate the first piece but wouldn't touch the second piece. It tasted just like the fish pill!
Five hours after eating it I was on my way home and all of a sudden I tasted the fish again-just like the fish pill!!!! Lesson of the day: Put Albacore on your sushi avoid list.
P.S. During lunch I was sharing my story below about Doug's lunch and when I got to the part about Lenore telling me Doug doesn't like beef Anne Marie interrupted me and said "Well, that's not true, he always orders a hamburger"......

I never eat mints but the other morning at Starbucks I decided to pick some up. As I was chewing one after the next, (Really, why) I said to Laura, "I think these are ideamints" a few minutes later she was on a conference call and started eating the mints, she put herself on mute and then she proclaimed "I think they are annoyamints".

Walking out of the office I called Lenore and asked her what Doug likes to eat for lunch and she responded that she wasn't sure. Last week I received the following email from Lenore:
Message: I asked Doug what he does and does not like for lunch. He said he likes most anything except beef. Thought this might come in handy when planning your Friday lunches.
So my question is how come every time I have lunch with Doug he orders a cheeseburger?
