Starbucks Mug Collection Update

Sorry I missed the blog post on Monday.  I was in Canada last week, and immediately after getting back I went to Orlando for a couple of days to get inventory started for Green Mustard Entertainment as we go into “convention season”.  The result of doing so much travel and...

My Starbucks Mug Collection (2016)

“Coffee, coffee.  Coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee.” -Coffee Bean, Regular Show I’ve made collecting Starbucks mugs a part of my travel archive for some time now.  A couple of years ago, they (Starbucks) phased out the previous collection of larger mugs, so I switched over to the new ones – the...

I collect #StarbucksMugs. (Currently, the “You Are Here” series)

When Green Mustard Entertainment kicked into gear to the point that I started traveling a lot, I started drinking more coffee.  The side effect of these two things is that I got into collecting Starbucks mugs from places I had been to.  It was fun, inexpensive, and a quirky way...

Free stuff on my birthday – where should I go?

Early next week I will be, yet again, celebrating the anniversary of my birth.  Starbucks decided to remind me yesterday with a reminder on my iPhone app: That’s right: FREE COFFEE, BITCHES!  This got me thinking – where else can I score free stuff by merely getting older? The other...

Japan Day 4: Harajuku & The Evangelion Store

Remember that time I went to Japan?  Remember when I was blogging about all the exciting adventures I had?  The last time I posted part of that particular tale was over two months ago – in the beginning of May.  Check it out: http://www.tomcroom.com/archives/8990 I left off at this photo: So...

Japan Day 3: Orange Coffee & Japanese Maid Cafes 3

Japan Day 3: Orange Coffee & Japanese Maid Cafes

I spent a number of my formative years in Orlando, Florida.  As a result, I have developed all the key skills needed to operate as a fairly efficient tourist.  My wife and I often return from vacations amazed at the amount we are able to see and do in brief...

My @Starbucks Mug Obsession (and how you can help!) 15

My @Starbucks Mug Obsession (and how you can help!)

I collect Starbucks mugs for three simple reasons: 1. I like having something to mark places that Shannon and I have visited together. 2. They make a great kitchen decoration thanks to some awesome hooks I bought at Ikea. 3. I drink a lot of coffee. Since picking up this...

Follow up to the @Starbucks story from the other week.

So last week I posted this little rant about the “What’s up” woman who works at my local Starbucks drive-thru. Here’s what happened next: I copied and pasted the blog post into an email to Starbucks customer service and waited to hear a response.  The first reply, though, came via...

I’m Questioning @Starbucks Customer Service & Communication This Morning

TRUE STORY IN THREE PARTS: PART 1: Last month I called Starbucks to complain about a service issue that was bothering me. You see, I understand that a certain level of hipster “gotta be cool” motif will always exist in Starbucks – but that shouldn’t (in my opinion) cross the...

I drink a lot of coffee and (as a result) I have a large collection of @Starbucks Global Icon Mugs (with pics!)

Going to conventions around the U.S. is time consuming, but I get to meet a lot of great people and eat some pretty intense meals (Man v. Food, baby!)  One thing that stays consistent, though, is my caffeine addiction – and the insane number of Starbucks locations in major cities....

The Vegas Vacation Part II: The Luxor, Starbucks and The Strip

You should note that the shoes I’m wearing in this photo are my “lucky Converse.”  This has nothing to do with gambling and everything to do with almost dying on mountain ledges and canyons.  But I digress… LAS VEGAS.  A town so iconic that they have a parking lot set...

Flickr Friday: Remember the Alamo! 1

Flickr Friday: Remember the Alamo!

I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  In doing so, I get to revisit a lot of photos I’ve taken while travelling.  Each Friday, I plan on posting a photo that I think is interesting. Maybe you’ll think so, too. 🙂 On...
