I saved this coffee cup to document my annoyance. (Now that I’ve taken a photo, it can be recycled.)

If Starbucks’ marketing department had anything to do with the success of their holiday cup “news” coverage, then kudos to them for gaming some system. (It’s actually a very nice design.)

One reason why I started posting photos again was simply to quell this annoyance. I was getting to the end of my virtual rope, more often and faster—frustrated by the lack of meaty, emotional or human content online.

So to balance it all out, I’m trying to allocate time to reflect and post. It may not be meaty or emotional, but I suppose it counts as human. And I have one less reason to be angry.
