I swear I didn't leave that bomb!!!

There are at least a thousand Starbucks locations in 'Frisco, but the one where that bomb was found yesterday in the restroom is the very one I frequent nearly every week right before my Therapy Thursday sessions. It's too bizarre. On the local news, some woman said, "What-- did someone get mad because their latte wasn't made right?"

It's possible that some anti-corporation activist left it. A few years ago, a number of Starbucks in the city were vandalized simultaneously overnight. Or, maybe someone is just upset because the Gingerbread Frappucinos are no longer for sale? Haven't heard the news yet this morning.

In RE:ality TV Newz: Did anyone watch the premiere of "The Bachelor in Paris" last night? OMG, that insane doctor lady who was so obsessed with "reproducing" immediately and then went off on a Man-Hating Rant when she wasn't given a rose-- whoah! There's always one in the crowd. But the thing that bugged me the most was the ever-present African-American Bachelorette who gets eliminated with zero screen-time. Why do they even bother doing the token thing? When are we ever going to see an African-American Bachelor or Bachelorette? Watch "Elimidate" or "Blind Date," "Bachelor" producers!!! It would be so kick-ass. Otherwise, this series is DEAD.

But of course, I will still watch. :-P

It's one thing to see it on the news...but when it's a place where people you know actually frequent, that makes it more, i dunno, real?

C'mon Albert. Fess up. They gave you caf when you asked for de, didn't they? That's why.

Not watching Single Doc in Paris. But am watching Dancing with the Stars. It rocks. Well, it will, once the P-Man is cha-cha'd outta there.

Haven't watched "Bachelor" but would have had I known about the crazy lady rant; don't you love it when Reality Show Contestants Go Wild? It's the only reason to watch.

I did see "Project Runway" though, my absolute fave. So Nikki Hilton thinks she has 'exquisite' taste. Oh, those wacky celebutantes!

ALbert! I found you! Finally. Well my dear, it seems you have been having quite the week...;-) That is scary to hear when it is somewhere you are a regular. Yikes. I am glad I found you and am going to bookmark this page so that I can keep up with you now. I am finally back in the loop after a long 2 months. The baby is here and I am a bit sleep deprived. I am sorry it has taken so long to get back into the swing of things. I have missed you bunches! *HUGS and Kisses*

Love:
Brandie

I was wondering about you when I saw the news about that Starbucks. Freaky!!! Glad you weren't there.

RE Bachelor...it's old news and so over. Really. Even the description for it from the cable company's review on the info button said it was trying revive it's lame self by going to Paris.

Albert!! I've been following your blog but don't know how to get ahold of you, so I signed up here just so I could post a reply.

Sooo glad you didn't get caught up in the bomb thing. I guess it was a week for bomb scares. The building I work in had to be closed for a while yesterday due to a bomb threat. Not that anyone really minded...

Haven't seen Bachelor, but I do watch Project Runway at times. People with exquisite taste... Hmm...

Hey. We need to get out more, don't we?? I have something in mind.

Dear Albglinka: Your blog didn't update over the last week for me for some reason. Weird.

And I assume you've heard the news that the bomb was a complete figment of our dumb police force's imagination, probably trying to get more Homeland Security dollars.
