Morning Coffee: Volume Two

morning_coffee

It’s time for another morning coffee post, were I post about various and sundry news items and things that may be going on in my life. Enjoy!

-Apparently, Starbucks has declared war on Christmas with its new solid red cup. This has prompted some to “protest” the new cup by ordering a beverage at Starbucks, giving their name as “Merry Christmas” and taking a selfie with said cup, showing the entire world that they have no idea how a protest actually works. (Hint: it involves not giving money to a business or organization that you disagree with, but I digress.)

-However, that’s not the only shot in the “War were declared” on Christmas files: apparently, Simon Malls isn’t using the “traditional” backdrop of Christmas trees and reindeer for their visit with Santa backdrop and people are pissed. Some are so pissed off that they have formed a Facebook page urging shoppers to boycott the Malls. Because nothing says good old fashioned Christian traditions like pagan symbols for a misappropriated holiday, amirite?

-Oh and if you want to frequent good old fashioned Christ fearing businesses, just check out the link to the AFA’s Naughty and Nice List. Just don’t think too hard about some of the choices here; I’m still confused as to how Target is considered “Nice” when they banned Salvation Army bell ringers from standing by their doors. And boy, do Barnes and Noble gift cards look insanely tempting this year.

-According to an Alabama “educator”, Common Core is teaching kids about transgender stuff. Because of the term “outfits”. Because only feminazis call clothing outfits. Or something. Yeah, I don’t get it either.

-Last night, my shiny Tyrunt hunt finally came to an end, as egg number 132 hatched as a shiny male Tyrunt. He has a full set of Egg moves, along with 5 perfect IVs–he’s missing Special Attack, which he doesn’t need–and was promptly named Grimlock because he’s going to be a king. I’m now starting a hunt for a shiny female Pawniard, which will be named Lyuze and then I’ll follow up with a pair of Golett, one with Iron Fist and the other with No Guard. Hey, I have to do something until another game comes out!

And that just about covers it. So I’ll leave you until next time, when I make another silly post about weird goings on in life and in general. Cheers!
