Need to have one of these everyday... else the day does not feel complete!

Yes, truly, Starbucks Rocks!

Nothing like entering Barnes & Nobles, grabbing a book, a cuppa coffee (or should I say, grab a frapp to sound hip) and read away!

In Baltimore we have this open air mall kinda place. They have an awesome fountain with a live band which performs there every weekend. And a Starbucks right next to it. Sip on coffee, listen to music! If you get bored, walk into B&N, sip more coffee and read some book. And its funny, but I never have coffee at work (and am surrounded by coffoholics). Sometimes I feel these people come to office to have coffee. But when I see Starbucks, I am like a lost baby who suddenly found his mother.

News Flash. Interstate I-495/I-95 had a comeplete backlog of traffic since some guy wanted to jump off the bridge which connects these two and he held up traffic for a while.

I dont get it. Why did traffic stop? The guy anyways wanted to commit suicide. Do him a favour and run him over! At least others will get home on time!

Rumpel: I agree. In Mumbai I never had coffee. But when I did, it was the one Mom made at home. Starbucks is like iPod of coffees. Style, fancy, expensive! Some local spots might have better coffee, but then, everyone wants an iPod, despite other media players in the market!

Mahima: I am with ya!!

Couchie: Couldn't have summed it up better!

Question: If a person has rights over his own life, does that include the right to end it too?

Personally I think so. But the law doesn't agree, if Bollywood is to be believed..."Aatma-hatya kanooni jurm hi nahin, paap bhi hai!!"
