Weekend Thoughts

  • Crucify me if you must, but I’m just gonna say it: The PSL has been replaced in my life. Dunkin Donuts has better pumpkin coffee than Starbucks. It’s fact.


  • There are few things more frustrating than having to learn the layout of a new-to-me grocery store. Yesterday, I found myself identifying with a toddler throwing a temper tantrum in isle 7. I was so frustrated over not being able to find the fucking international isle that I, too, wanted to fall on the floor and thrash about. I JUST NEEDED REFRIED BEANNNNSSSS.

  • Like dangerous animals, children can sense my fear.
  • Last night, Cory’s grandpa had his first experience with Sweet Frog. I was glad to be there to help him learn the ropes. It’s so tragic to think that he had to wait 80+ years to taste the glory that is Sweet Frog.


  • I entertain myself in odd ways when I’m out alone. For instance, when I go to Starbucks and they ask for my name, I always make one up. I giggle every time.


  • Hey, I hope you had a great weekend! :)

  2. Haha I used to do that with my friends in High School at Panera! I always want to do it it at Starbucks but I falter at the last second!

  3. :lol: I used to do that at Starbucks too, but then I got a gold card and had to stop since it had my name printed on it :(

  4. Parita says:

    I am so going to use a different name the next time I’m at Starbucks! That is awesome!

  5. Hahaha, I love that you make up names! I hope you throw in a complicated one every once in a while so they are so confused about the spelling :) .

  6. I love that you make up a name haha thats awesome

  7. I wish we had a DD near us! Or maybe I don’t? I’d probably be in trouble if you’re saying their PSL is so good. Aaaand I absolutely love the fact that you give Starbucks a random name. Hilarious. I think I’d bust out laughing!

  8. Laura Likes Design says:

    That’s hilarious about the names! I’ve never thought to do that! We don’t have a DD by us–wish we did though!

  9. Lindsay says:

    HAHA! I love that you make up a name at Starbucks!

  10. I took my grandma to sweet frog for her first fro-yo and it was an equally amazing experience ;)

  11. Maureen says:

    Fake names are the best! Why are beans in the International section? Do Americans not eat beans?? Weird!

  12. Becster says:

    I get the tantrum in the supermarket! I had it today. So annoying when they move things around!

    What is sweet frog?

  13. Caroline says:

    hahaha- i have a fake first/last name combo that I throw out at random times, but I don’t switch it up. Maybe I should for my own fun! If I had a Dunkin Donuts close to me I’d definitely try their pumpkin coffee!

  14. I’m with everyone cracking up over the fact that you use a different name at Starbucks!!

  15. I agree–DD pumpkin coffee WINS! This weekend at Starbucks I didn’t make up a name, but the barista took care of it for me… I was “Airica.”

  16. I always use fake names – one time I slipped up and did it out of habit while my mother was with me, she thought it was the funniest thing ever and was laughing uncontrollably. It became quite uncomfortable lol

  17. I haven’t had my PSL yet this season and now at least I know to try it at DD instead of Starbucks! Yay thank you and I’m glad to hear this – at least I’ll save money too ;)

  18. Betsy says:

    I agree, Dunkin Donuts does have better pumpkin coffee!

  19. I totally agree with you – Dunkin Donuts has the better pumpkin coffee!! :-)

  20. Tom says:

    I like to give them a name that is hard or funny for them to call out. For some reason I use Ruppert a lot.

  21. I cant stopppp w the sweet frogs. this 2-3 time a week habit has got to come to an end soon lol it’s mildy outta control. but its just sooooooo gooooood!!!

  22. You’re too cute. I always want to give a false name but I chicken out. Why?! They don’t know me right? lol

  23. Nicole says:

    I need Dunkin’ in California………. waaaaaaaahhhhhh! (my own toddler-like melt-down!) Wahhhhhh!

  24. My best friend does that everywhere we go-she makes up a name for her order! I crack up!

  25. Dunkin Donuts has PUMPKIN flavored coffee?!??? YUUUUP. Sign me up.

  26. I hate trying to figure out a new grocery store, especially when they put things in weird places. Drives me crazy. Found you via the Beltway Bloggers list, love finding other DC area bloggers! http://talenttoplay.blogspot.com

  27. Cecilia says:

    I give a different name at Starbucks too because they can never spell my real name. I find it amusing as well!:)

  28. stephsnacks says:

    I totally agree! Dunkin Pumpkin is WAYYYYYY better than Starbucks! Must get one this week :)

  29. Krista says:

    I read a lot of blogs (including yours, obviously) and rarely comment (it takes forever to peck the keys on my iPad), but I just felt the need to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. You’re authentic and funny as hell! So thank you, Sally (heehee)…for being you. :)

  30. Stephanie says:

    In grocery stores i hate being in the checkout line that is my worst frustration you always seem to get into the worst line that goes nowhere

  31. I SO want to make a fake name at starbs…mainly because they NEVER get my effin name right. Does an alter ego come along with these false names? haha
