So apparently Starbucks are releasing red cups today – a lead up to Christmas. I don’t agree with the advertising of this consumerism – I love coffee, but don’t need all the crap around it. What I don’t get is why releasing different cups is a thing – in the modern age of trying to be eco friendly surely we need less plastic cups being produced. And I also don’t understand people who get excited by this. I would love to have so little going on in my life that this was a big deal.

And how do I tie this into the name of my blog? My wife is desperate to go back to America – we used to holiday in Florida a lot (yeah, yeah), and one thing that will take her back there is a soy decaf vanilla latte – the small things. But she doesn’t care what colour the cup is!
