Cutbacks Are Swell!


The news that Starbucks won’t continually brew decaf after noon to save money is OK with me; I don’t go to Starbucks and if I did, I certainly wouldn’t drink decaf. The whole point of coffee is the freakin’ caffeine!

The development that the postal service might not deliver on Saturdays is absolutely cool with me too. Right now, I’m only getting bills in the mail, along with the occasional coupons for carpet cleaning and teeth whitening. I can certainly wait till Monday to deal with them!

And here’s more great late-breaking news: I’m hearing that Vanity Fair‘s annual Oscar party will be scaled down as well. In fact, it’s just going to be a dinner! This is fantastic because now it’ll be easier for me to justify why I wasn’t invited!
