I used to HATE Starbucks. Now I love it. It was the only source of caffiene on Sunday mornings at church (I go to church in a theater, is it odd that Starbucks is also brough to us?). I learned to love it. Seriously, I do. Although nothing beats a good Timmys triple triple, one of my main reasons for not moving to California.
Anyhow, if you go to Starbucks with yor friend, have a juice and a brownie. Or cookie, the cookies there are delicious!
