File this under "stupid things that make me happy," the Red Cup is back at Starbucks...
I've been watching to see how many days after Halloween until the Starbucks Red Cup appeared. For those of you at home keeping score, this year it was four; when I went to get my free Election Day coffee on Tuesday, I also got my first Red Cup of the season. I'm not sure I'm ready for "the season" yet. I'm not even sure what I'm serving for Thanksgiving.
As for this year's Red Cup...meh. Is the faint pattern supposed to be Christmas trees? Or the stockinette stitch from one of grandma's Christmas sweaters? Not sure. It kind of looks like tire tracks to me. Personally I'm partial to the Pass the Cheer Red Cup Campaign from a last year with the jolly bright java jackets. Bring back the jolly java jackets!
What do you think? Yay or nay to the Red Cup?
