Oh Holy Fuck

So, last night I was headed into town to get something called a Caffe Americano at Starbucks. (Don't ask me what size, I don't know. In fact, that whole sizing this is the gayest crap this side of something very gay. Yes, I said gay. Sometimes (very rarely) it's the only thing I can think of to accurately describe something, well, gay. It's ok. I went to a women's college...)

(Gay, Gayer, Gayest)

Two things: 1) I don't really drink coffee, but have been feeling pressured and un-adultlike lately for my dislike of the stuff, so someone suggested I try this Americano business and 2) I have a Starbucks giftcard. While I'm walking home I'm serenaded by my friendly neighborhood street performer playing the "Christmas Song" on his sax. What? Really? It's just now Halloween. I've accepted Target pushing Christmas in August, but street musicians? Furthermore, why are there street performers in Northampton, MA? 30,000 people live in this town. How much can this guy possibly be making (answer: probably more than me)? And where's the steel drum player? I miss him.
