Grande Mocha No Whip for "The Man"
« on: January 30, 2007, 12:57:28 PM »

I'm on a coffee kick today. Shocked

What's your Starbucks name?

In Roseville alone, there are teenage girls named Bartholomew, a businessman who calls himself Ben Affleck and a Kaiser doctor who goes by Frankenstein.

At least those are the monikers they tag on themselves when asked for a call-out name on a food or beverage order.

The name game is a quirky trend at places like Starbucks and Jamba Juice.

Do you guys use your real name when ordering at a coffee joint, juicebar, or deli?

I usually don't because my first name is *fudge*ed up, and takes a while to explain.  For a while, I was using Dusty, my dog's name.

I've thought about trying out these names sometime:
Jean-Luc
Voldemort
Kwisatz Haderach

Hmmm.  I've never done any of that.  I don't think I've ever even walked into a Starbucks.

If you did, you could use James Hunt.

To attempt an understanding of Muad'Dib without understanding his mortal enemies, the Harkonnens, is to attempt seeing Truth without knowing Falsehood. It is the attempt to see the Light without knowing Darkness. It cannot be.

He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

I used Mitch *Monica-spot* once.

Once.

Huh.  I just read the article.  I had no idea.  Like I said, I've never even walked in one.  Now, back to that article about a baby snatching.  Lindbergh, I think was the name.

I use a fake latte name.  Mine also seems to get botched (pizza, takeout, pretty much anything).

Same for my wife, although she soldiers on with her real name.

That's bizzare...

A Starbucks just went up at the new shopping centre in my area....

A few things I've noticed...

1:- People out my way just don't get jazz
2:- If you can't pronounce the name of the coffee you want properly you shouldn't be in there.
3:- Reading a Danielle Steel novel while drinking a "Cafe Late" or "Cuppofchino" does not make you look hip or sophisticated.
4:- If your job requires you to wear a 'high visibility' vest, I'd say the nearest "Truck Stop" is more your scene.
5:- If you feel the urge to read one of the "Complimentary" Daily Newspapers, don't even try and complete the crossword, even the simple one.  Just stick to the comic strips.  You're not fooling anyone by attempting the crossword, and by the way 5 Down is DOG not CAT

The Granite Bay Starbucks referred to in the article is my regular SBUX.  In the morning the lines are quite long and it seems as if everyone is using a fake moniker.  I prefer Shabadoo Buggywhip.
