Working at Starbucks
There are a few things I hate about Starbucks. For starters I hate the sometimes forced interest in my life the baristas display. I'm a regular and even though I prefer to be anonymous, I'm not. But I still return. Unlike the other coffee shops in town, this isn't filled with annoying 20 year-old girls chatting about their drinking escapades. Well, not at 6am anyway. But Starbucks does create a nice atmosphere with their musical choices. They seem to hit my work tempo just right, and help me discover new music. This morning I heard the Sade tune "Soldier of Love" and they turned me on to the new Kate Earl CD. Here is the video for "Melody".
