MANY HAPPY RETURNS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

It was Many Happy Returns this morning at 7th and Montana as Howard and Cathy made the scene, fresh from nearly three months in Colorado where they were busy with the Vail Jazz Festival. Welcome home, Howard and Cathy ... we missed you!

It was also many happy returns for Actress Renee Zellweger who I think beat my record today for the most hours spent at Our Favorite Starbucks on a Sunday morning. She arrived when I did, at about 9:00, and was still there when I left with Kathy and Genevieve at 1:30. Good for you, Renee, you know a good thing when you see it.


Speaking of "good things," it was also many happy returns today for Starbuck's signature fall drink, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. They were giving out free samples by the cash register. "Yikes," I said, noting the bright orange color, "What's that?" "That's just the Pumpkin Spice Latte without any whipped cream," said one insider. I quietly whipped out my Spycam. "You are going to say something positive about it, right?," asked the insider. "Of course," I replied. Indeed, the Pumpkin Spice Latte looks positively disgusting without its protective layer of whipped cream, almost like a urine sample of someone who tested positive for jaundice ...!

Re-affirms my dislike for any flavored coffee. Strong and black is my preference.

Whoa, that really does look disgusting. How is that a latte?

Now you've gone and turned me off the pumpkin spice lattes. Oh wait, I don't drink them anyway. I like the fall flavors, but it has to be black. Nothing photo-worthy. -Cin
