Yesterday I went out at about 2:00 in the afternoon, and got a pumpkin latte from the Peets Coffee in the student Union. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with Peet's -
they're close to my office, but they don't have a good store layout and the line can be ridiculous. They're not local (but of course, neither is Starbucks and I go there a lot). They make all their flavored drinks waaay too sweet. But their skim lattes are nice and hot. So all of this repressed angst must've acted its way out, and as soon as I got back with said pumpkin latte, I spilled several tablespoons of it on my computer (on the keyboard, near the hinge). I immediately tipped the liquid out, and took it down to the IT guys, who removed the battery and left it to dry out overnight. And lo and behold, it seems to be just fine now - I'm supposed to watch for sticky keys. I didn't even like the latte, and dumped it out, but I did get to leave work at at 3:30, so's I could use the computer there while my laptop dried out.

For a bizarre taste sensation, try the green tea latte at Starbucks -- it looked, smelled, and tasted like it was made with spinach! My daughter kept saying, "It's not so bad. Just don't think of spinach while you're drinking it." Then she tried it -- "SPINACH!" I dumped it out; too disgusting to finish.
