Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

Driving back to Seattle this afternoon, I felt a sudden need for coffee. But, given that I'd already crossed the Columbia, I wasn't sure what I'd find. Then I spied an exit that, though it had no visible indications of upward mobility -- all I could see from the road were fast food emporia -- cried out to me. I rapidly made my into the right lane and left the freeway. And what did I find? A recently-opened plaza with an even newer Peet's. While I realize that this indicates the further Starbucks-ification of that once-proud brand, I was happy to be able to get a decen caffé mocha and even happier to not have to say "venti." Better still, my psychic powers were confirmed.

Nothing, in the abstract. But it bothers me when other coffee places feel obliged to use the same ordering system as Starbucks. I like diversity.
