BEAM ME UP, SCOTTY ...!

Captain's Log, Star Date 2009.07.24. The Enterprise is in Orbit around a strange and isolated world called Rancho Bernardo, where the local inhabitants think everything is "Spectacular." Broken a limb? Spectacular! Fallen off a cliff? Spectacular! Captured by the Klingons? Spectacular! I paid another visit to the local Starbucks this morning and, once again, was surprised at just how "chipper" everyone was. "Here's your Treat Receipt," chirped a Spectacular Young Barista. "Why is my receipt such a treat?," I asked. "If you bring it in after 2:00 p.m. today, we'll give you a grande cold drink for only $2.00," she said. Thanks, but no thanks. Two trips to this Starbucks in one day would be enough to put me in a Diabetic Coma, and I'm not talking about the Apple Fritters. Beam me up, Scotty ...!
