Gnarls Scarley and Starbucks

So I had surgery on my elbow about 3 weeks ago. I had some nerve problems and I couldn't feel my pinky. I had an ulnar nerve compression so I had ulnar nerve decompression. I had a giant bandage on my arm for 2 weeks which was awful and uncomfortable. It came off Monday and I could finally see the damage. I will post the pictures at the end, so if you don't want to see a pretty nasty scar, don't look. In the mean time, Amanda and I went to Starbucks.


I used to work at Starbucks and I am a bit of a coffee junkie. I can also make pretty amazing coffee beverages, so hit me up. I am an amazing barista! Starbucks was my favorite job, aside from my current job. I have some pretty amazing stories such as on two seperate occasions, men walked directly into the plate glass window of our store thinking it was an open door. These both happened at about 5 in the morning, so they were most likely hung over. We left the face prints on the window for months.


So via Facebook, Starbucks was giving away coupons for a free snack plate. I have had the snack plates, as one of the perks of the job is free and reduced priced goodies. Yet we indulged in a cheese plate.

There are some crackers, an apple, almonds, dried cranberries, cheddar, brie, and gouda. Amanda and I split it. About as good as you would expect from something that isn't remotely fresh and I would never buy one, but in a pinch....it works. I guess.


Not seen: our drinks! I had a grande iced coffee. Amanda went with a venti black iced tea. Both unsweetened. Like I said, I used to work at Starbucks and I would hace Frappuccinos all the time. Then I realized they made my stomach hurt. I went to mochas, which I try not to get so much because they are super sweet. Iced coffee is the perfect summer afternoon beverage. I love it. I want one right now. I have also realized that Starbucks coffee isn't very good compared to just about every mom and pop shop, or coffee bean, or what I can make at home. Oh well! You have a favorite coffee beverage? Is Starbucks evil?


Ok, so if you don't want to see my scar, don't read anymore. It isn't really that gross, but I am just trying to warn. So you have been warned.


So, when you have surgery on your arm, they ask about a million times which arm you are in to have surgery on. From what I understand, medical malpractice is bad, as is having your good arm hacked on. So they take this to the extreme, and literally stamp YES on the arm you are to have surgery on.

And here is the scar. I named him Gnarls Scarley.

I still can't bend it all the way and they said I might need physical therapy. And I still have some numbness in my pinky, which could take several months to heal. We shall see.

Awesome scar! Glad you are healing and hope it continues to improve.
As for Starbucks, I like a soy cappucino. Can't help it. I just gotta have it sometimes.

Starbucks is evil, and yet I get sucked in to going every morning (and often in the afternoon during treat receipt season)

Coffee Bean is soooo much better but since there isn't one on every corner like Starbucks I don't get to go very often. I also really like Peets.
Cool scar, I hope it heals well.
