Thanks for trying harder, Starbucks.

So, tomorrow they give the 5 cents from every drink to the Global Fund. A step in the right direction. They should have been doing it for the whole campaign though...

For real, Starbucks? Come on...

Dear Starbucks,

You are making me very mad right now. You are promoting your (Starbucks) RED campaign and doing a very good job making yourself look like a responsible company. Why though, Starbucks, Sweetie, are you only donating your 5 cents from three different drinks? Come on, you had to know that people were going to flock to your stores to buy their coffee and think they were doing good because their purchase was contributing to the Global Fund.

In fact, I'm sure your profits will be quite swollen from this campaign, but still you are only giving 5 cents from THREE DIFFERENT DRINKS?!? Really? Yes, you have stated that it's only from your Select drinks that you make donations (of around 1.75% and less), but is that all you can give? With the increased profits that surely you have already anticipated you are still only giving less than 2% of the sales from three drinks on your menu? Shame on you.

Thanksgiving Shenanigans

My cousin: "I'm so hungry, I could eat that whole pie."

My brother: "I'll give you $20 if you can do it in five minutes."

Not 10 seconds later, she had already begun. It was a great effort through five minutes, but she was still painfully short.

My cousin: "Ok, half the money for double the time."

So she went on for another five minutes hoping for $10.

After 15 minutes she had still not finished it and was gagging with each bite. She made $4 for her effort.

When her younger brother and sister told on her no one believed them. I'm sure there are more than a few people who still wonder what happened to a whole pecan pie.

Now on to Christmas!

It's break time.

It's snowing/raining/nastying outside. I don't have sensible winter shoes, only some clog-like things that lead to wet socks in the nasty/sloppy snow. Ick. I have to say though, as long as I'm inside, I do love watching the snow fall. It's one of my favorite things.

I went to my mom's school today to take pictures of "Grandparents Day." Her kindergarten students were pretty excited to see Mrs. Komjati's son. "He's tall!" "He's taller than his mom." "He's taller than the building!" Ahh, the youngins...

They told me to some of the best jokes I've heard in a long time.

"Knock, knock"
(Who's there?)
(Banana who?)
"Banana smushed all over your face!"

They thought it was hilarious! Sometimes they substituted banana for spider. That's gross.

We talked about what makes us laugh. One kid said that he laughs when his sister falls off her chair, another said that he/she laughs when he/she gets tickled. My favorite was a little boy who said he laughs when his dad wears his mom's clothes and make-up. No lie.

I've been reading Job lately. I was under the impression that Job happily took whatever he was inflicted with. I was wrong. Job gets MAD after a while. I'm about half way done and I'm excited to see where it goes.

God is sovereign.

Just a party?

This is a story I did for my Radio Broadcasting class. There is more than just partying going on at Ohio University.
