I Haven't Rated Anything In Awhile

Starbuck’s Eggnog Latte – Oh, these are dangerous. For those of you not in the know, they steam half milk and half eggnog and the resulting product is beyond words. I plan to dedicate all five pounds of my holiday weight gain to this beverage. Speaking of seasonal beverages, this season I’ve mixed things up a bit and had a peppermint hot chocolate once or twice, but never a gingerbread latte. When I worked there I made the mistake of smelling a bottle of gingerbread syrup and when I opened my eyes I expected to see dog shampoo, you know the disgusting green kind. Stick with the eggnog latte – A.

Licorice Altoids – I don’t even like Altoids, but I love licorice. I think I bought these because I was trying to cut out everything with artificial sweeteners, including gum and mints. These are so curiously strong that they are physically painful. I gave one to my brother-in-law and it brought tears to his eyes. I wouldn’t buy them again, but I may try the ginger ones in the future. C-

Grey’s Anatomy – I have loved Patrick Dempsey since I was a teenager. He has only gotten better with age and just may be number one on my list of celebrities I can sleep with and not get in trouble with my husband. Everyone has one of those, right? I love this show because it’s not such a serious medical drama like ER, and has the feel of a night time soap opera of yore, plus it’s funny. A

Sushi and Subs – This is a restaurant I have avoided for years because I don’t think of sushi when I think of subs, and vice versa. On my neverending quest for a lunch that is moderately healthy and won’t make me want to nap afterwards, I tried it. The sushi that is, not the subs because that would just be weird. It was equivalent to the sushi sold at Publix, but less expensive and a larger quantity. I don’t have any visible signs of food poisoning yet, so I will give it a B.

I am going to get an eggnog latte in the morning!
I do like the ginger altoids...but like anything they make, they are VERY strong.

Patrick Dempsey makes me want to do naughty things. When in the world did he get so incredibly HOT?????

I just wish his character on Grey's Anatomy would dump his wife already...for me! ;)

Mary - I ordered a grande eggnog latte today and they only had venti cups. I now have a belly ache and have gained one holiday pound.

Alicia - Patrick totally had a nose job. I just saw a picture of him from Can't Buy Me Love.
