We’ll Swallow Your Soul!

Ritual Coffee RoastersI have to dedicate this post to my brother Eric, who has survived several years of doing the hip thing in Seattle working as a *$’s barista. I haven’t exactly grilled him for any explicit inside storys that come from working for the Man, but I imagine there must be a couple of them.

All he’s really told me is if you order chai, ask for no water to be added.

Via Laughing Squid, the incrediably cool employees at Ritual Coffee Roasters in San Francisco are dressed up as zombie baristas today. Aka, Starbucks employees.
Swallow Your Soul!
I’m chalking this one up in the list of what to dress up as next year!

That’s hilarious! BTW – thanks for the tip on the Thriller remake – I was fortunate enough to see it out on the EMU lawn…one word…AWESOME! Have a wonderful Halloween McAuliflower!

  • I’m so glad you got to catch a show!

    Michelle and I have a fellow scientist (in the Postlethwaite lab), who plays the role of Michael Jackson’s girlfriend in a special Thriller production that gets re-enacted in busy parts of campus in between class times today. It’s a hoot! “Michael” and his Girlfriend skip into a clearing and then get over taken with zombies that pop out from in between people rushing to and from class. Next thing you know, they’re all doing the zombie dance from the Thriller video! I might have a picture or two. We’ll have to pop one up here when they’re developed (old school camera!).
