Recently, I learned that the Subway six-inch daily special is the absolute cheapest--in substance to price ratio--lunch on campus. Alex and Jon and others complain that the daily special is usually a bad sandwich, but I think all Subway sandwiches taste basically the same when you add pickles. So I am really happy about this new development in my life, except on Tuesdays, when the meatball marinara sub is up, and I insist that meatballs cannot be sandwiched no matter how creatively you dress them. But then I add pickles and stop complaining.
Additionally, I discovered that the Starbuck's in the Bookstore (which Alex points out is not a real Starbuck's, but merely a generic food dispensary which happens to serve the entire panoply of Starbuck's drinks) has $3 grande drink specials on a different drink each day. The two days when I am near that NON-Starbuck's for econ are the days when they discount my two favorite drinks--chai and pumpkin spice lattes. Unfortunately, due to some misguided directives from above, delicious pumpkin spice has been replaced by some Christmas-themed drek like egg-nog latte. Fortunately, econ is over, so I don't care anymore.
Also, tea has re-entered my life as a cheaper and significantly tastier alternative to coffee. I noticed tea is gaining currency as a hipper drink than coffee in some circles (Argo Tea is always packed, and I found some ridiculously named store called Teavanna at Northbrook Court over the weekend) which I also view as a positive development.
That is all.
