While in the
For a long time in
Four years back in the Bay Area, forced to accompany my colleagues, I had my first encounter with Starbucks. When I looked at the list of Italian names on the menu, I thought that besides coffee they also sold replicas of famous Italians in different sizes as souvenirs and asked for a Grande sized replica of Da Vinci, Garibaldi, or Antonio Gramsci. But the store-people were convinced that Latte and Caramel Macchiato were more famous Italians. Then and there, I lost my faith in myself and famous Italians and have never since been able to appreciate coffee or any hot drinks for that matter. And then, I looked at my colleague holding a "grande" drink. A few of those humongous drinks, if dumped in the Indian ocean, can drown entire Bangladesh and a few Indonesian islands.
Ok, so that was all about coffee. As for TV, well I just put that in, courtesy Blur.
