You’re not important enough for there to be a global conspiracy targeting you.

Just saw this from a friend of a friend on Facebook telling everyone to get the vaccine after nearly dying of COVID because they didn’t. Why didn’t they? “We were scared of the vaccination because of all of the uncertainties and lack of trust anything we can be told anywhere.”

I think the biggest issue here is when did you wake up and suddenly become so untrusting of scientists? What motivation do scientists have to inject you with a vaccine aside from trying to keep you alive and out of the hospital?

Same with masks. Do you think people want you to wear a mask because someone somewhere is becoming a mask billionaire? Or maybe it’s a conspiracy to make fun of you for wearing a mask? Guess what. No one gives a shit about what you wear.

You’re not important enough for there to be a global conspiracy targeting you. That’s right. You’re a speck and possibly a pain in the ass. No one cares to “control” you or mock you and if you’ve convinced yourself that you matter that much, you’re full of shit.

There is barely a hint

of the taste of pumpkin in my Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks.

Why do we accept this from Starbucks? We pay so much for a drink to have it not taste like what it is supposed to be. They do this to me all the time but I always try again thinking that maybe this time they have a seasonal drink that doesn’t suck.

Here is the website description: Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with a pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice topping.

So it’s really a Vanilla Cold Brew with some foam and some dusting.

Last week, I went to Dunkin’ to get a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and it tastes like a liquid pumpkin pie. It’s so strong you get dizzy and think it’s Halloween. You barely get the last sip down before the diarrhea hits. That’s getting your money’s worth, not this weak foam and dust treatment you get at Starbucks plus no craps at all. How do I know it’s working if it doesn’t go in cold and come out hot? It’s not working. It’s pitiful.

Here’s the description from Dunkin’: NEW Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew: For the ultimate pumpkin experience, Dunkin’s new premium pumpkin pick, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, offers Dunkin’s Cold Brew – coffee steeped in cold water for 12 hours for an incredibly rich, ultra-smooth, full-bodied beverage – made with pumpkin flavor swirl, topped with the new Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar topping. Dunkin’s new Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam is light orange in color and has sweet notes of pumpkin and hints of warm spices such as cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. The drink is served with a special sip lid so fall fanatics can enjoy the layers of velvety Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam and delicious bold Cold Brew to the fullest.

That’s right – you get pumpkin flavor swirl. It’s so powerful your drink turns orange. Grab the wipes and take your Kindle in the bathroom with you. You’ll be there a while.

I know where I’ll be going to get my pumpkin fix from now on.

Today is

  • a new start if needed
  • a blank slate aside from the chores and to-do’s we assigned to today ahead of time
  • a chance to choose what I let in to my mind (negativity vs. positivity)
  • a chance to choose what I let in to my body (healthy eating vs. lazy eating)
  • an opportunity to sit in the sun for a while
  • possibly wasted if I do nothing with it

A pleasant evening

I have been unleashing my anger on Twitter on a newly reactivated public account. There is so much to be angry about these days and I’ve enjoyed Twitter much more since it has become to me exactly what I fought it becoming for so many years. It’s now the dumping ground for my rants and rages and it feels pretty nice.

This old guy is working on getting the site going. It’s a shame he can’t afford to retire. Can you imagine being 90 or something and still having to wear a hard hat and a tie? Younger people need to step up.
