I know I am getting to be known a the "Starbucks Girl". While thats not really a good thing, I am there about 2X a day (already hit my limit today) and talk about it quite often. I figure, if I keep shamelessly promoting them ... perhaps they will figure out that I am their dream customer and offer me a high-paying, high-benefit job with little effort required (and free Starbucks, of course).
Anyway, my mom mentioned this to me the other day, and Kristin over at Running with the Runner Girl just reminded me that Starbucks is giving away a free pastry with beverage purchase from open until 10:30 tomorrow. You need to print out this coupon.
I got into a nasty habit of having a pastry from them every day. I realized the error of my ways and cut that down to just weekends (with the occasional pastry on Wednesdays because I spend most of the day there doing schoolwork). I forgot about the free one tomorrow, and actually had one this morning (but I really needed/wanted/deserved it) when Brooke forced me up at 5:30 against my will and I found myself unable to get my head together without an emergency cup of coffee.
Their stuff is pretty good, I must admit. And they have been making some changes and I believe its noticeable. The stuff tastes a bit more fresh (but who cares, I'd eat a stale pastry too). Anyway, its a great excuse to get yourself a coffee and a pastry ... and if you are like me, and dont need an excuse in the first place, at least you can save a few bucks ;)
