Notes to Myself

Things I'd like to learn about when I have time -

Phlegm - it makes so much of my life miserable. What is it? Does it have a positive use?

The water system - I have no clue about how the water in my home/city works and I have a hunch I probably have some very strange and laughable ideas about it.

And in the time it took me to write this, I probably could have hit wikipedia and gotten everything straightened out.

Battle of the Corporate Lattes Pt. 2

Strangely enough, the newest latte at Starbucks is the "Dulce de Leche". I've had 2 (whole milk, no whip), and don't find it to be quite as good as the Cinnamon Dolce. Once again, I believe the flavoring is just a special syrup, though the website does promise "toffee sprinkles" which I am yet to experience or identify (it's possible I'm forfeiting these when I banish the whip cream). It would be better if they used real caramel instead of a flavoring.

I thought I was done with hot drinks until fall, but that good old Chicago weather got cold again.
