I can't win :P

So I go see my therapist for my weekly thingy. On the way home I stop at Coffee Bean to pick up a mocha iced blended with no whip cream and a rasberry tea latte for mom. At this point I have two buses to take to get home so I am shlepping this hot drink. As soon as I leave Coffee Bean I go 'why the hell did I get a hot drink?' as it spills a bit on my hand. Joy of joys. So three 7's pass, I could get on them but they are full and I refuse to stand with these drinks. So as another 7 comes up and I'm about to get on, the 13 pulls up. Yay! The 7 stops three blocks from my house and it's a 10 minute walk; no biggie when I don't have a hot drink threatening to spill. The 13 stops in front of the school across the street from our place and it takes me less then 5 minutes to get home; much better for my hands. Thing is, the 13 only runs a few times a day since it's the 'maid\nanny bus', I was lucky to catch it.
So I get home and hand mom her drink; she likes it. A few minutes later she says she can't drink it because it's giving her gas ><
I'm not mad at mom, she can't help it but I'm peeved her her intestines for doing that after I shlep that hot drink all the way from Westwood ><
So I put it in the kitchen and she'll have it later. Right now she's having toast with jelly and butter and some water.
I stopped at Borders before going to my therapist and picked up the book I ordered (special edition Chamber of Secrets!)
If any of you see the special edition for Sorcerer's Stone let me know! That one is much harder to find and I want it! Anyway, so I picked it up.
So here I am typing this entry and drinking my iced mocha blend no whip cream. I haven't had Coffee Bean since before Passover so it's been over two weeks since I've had it! I'm having little fits of pleasure from this drink ^_^
Ya know, I've been sitting here thinking about something. Ya know the Starbucks mocha fraps? Well the ones you get in the Starbucks' locations are terrible! I used to adore them before discovering Coffee Bean so I didn't know any better. They have this terrible aftertaste! Anyway, the point I'm making is you know the bottled ones you buy in the stores? They taste so much better! Isn't it the exact same crap!? It boggles the mind. Just thought I'd share my musings.

Nooo they are so not the same things. They're meant to taste the same, but they don't to me. I like them both, but I like the real things better because they are all icey and frothy you know? I do wish I had a Coffee Bean around here though so I could taste what you always rave about.

When's your birthday? I can send you the mixings to make yourself the cold drinks.
They aren't the same thing? Good to know, I thought I was insane thinking the bottles were better. If you put the bottles in the freezer then let them thaw a bit; they are teh awsome. I haven't had one in like...two years because of my love of CB though.

Ohhhh that is awesome. My birthday isn't until September 1st though ^_^

That is a good idea, I'll have to try that next time...they jsut started selling the bottles in bigger sizes too, wooooot.

Ddduuuddeee my icon looks awesome on your comment page, because it looks like it's falling off the grey bar, lol. I just uploaded it so this is the first time I've actually used it. Rock on.

That is a pretty awsome effect; it's a lovey icon. I will be changing my layout though to fit my love of Buckbeak and my obsessions ;)

Do you still have it saved on your computer? I'm always looking for new Buckbeak icons. There aren't enough movie!Buckbeak icons and the one I do have it all red tinted =\

Hmmm...I might...I'll hunt around and see if I can find it.

And for the mixy stuff I can always send you money for it, as it's not my birthday or another gift-giving occasion, lol, I wouldn't mind.

Ok, that'll be fine. They have the powder as well as the liquid coffee extract. You can make the drinks with only the powder and your own coffee but it tastes a bit different. They have vanilla and mocha.
Here's the official site.

Ooohh I'll look around the site when I'm done going through my old Photobucket account. So here are all the Buckbeak icons I've found... but they are older so not as good as my icons now..

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And here is one non-Buckbeak, but I saw it and thought you might like it anyway: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting ^_~
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And a H/D one.. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

If you want to take any of those Buckbeak ones, I can make the white border transparent now (I didn't know how to then) except for the animated one, because animated transparencies never work for me..

This is the one I used to use but deleted:

Holy flying bludgers, that's a lot of icons! I've seen the kinky Harry one and saved it, is it yours?
I saved them all! Yah, if you can take the white off that would be awsome.
That last Buckbeak icon is from my awsome poster!

Ya they're all mine..I'm surprised you've seen the kinky one, I didn't think any of my HP icons were still in use, I haven't made any new HP icons in forever...well...except for some requests and some Hufflepuff ones in an attempt to keep the Hufflepuff LJ community alive...but I haven't posted in the icon community in a looonnggg time.

Which would you like the borders off of? I can do them all if you like, just gimme a few minutes =)

Oh my god that is gorgeous! I really want your super cool Buckbeak poster, but I have nooooooooooooooooo more wall space for posters. Like, at all, sadly.

I'll do all of them, it'll just be probably 20-30 minutes cause I have to go pick up Sami from work in a few minutes.

So, what's the difference between the regular and the special edition HP books? Just out of curiosity. :D

Honestly? NOthing! Well, the special editions are leather books with a fancy cover...and ya know how the cover art is kinda chopped off from the limited spacing? Well they insert the whole thihg; also the pages are gold-leafed...oh! Also, the chapter art is fixed up so in SS\PS and COS special edition it isn't dark and hard to see like in the paperbacks I have.
Here's the book I got

It is and I think it's worth the money. They are hard to find now but can you imagine years from now? They will be worth stuff! I won't read from them of course; I have the normal hardbacks and paperbacks for that!

Man, going from Westwood. That sounds really rough! I live in Wilmington, it's in the boonies, but at least I have a bus stop in front of my apartment.

I didn't know you lived in the LA area, good to meet another local. I also see you went to Hogwarts; good school ;)
I'm always in Westwood; my therapist is there for one thing! Also, since the local area mall (Westside Pavillion) closed both their bookstores and I don't feel like going to The Grove or Santa Monica, I have to settle for Borders in Westwood (I'm a B&N girl). Westwood alone is a bitch but during rush hour and the fact that there's construction on Santa Monica? UGH

Oh, man! That really sucks. I ocassionally have to drive that way to pick up owner-relinquished turtles or tortoises. I know that it's bad that way.
