Starting the day the SCOTUS way, with my new coffee mug purchased from the basement shop in the highest court in the land. Ah, hot, perfectly-roasted, slightly-smoothed-with-cream justice. There's nothing like it.

For the rest of you suckers, AFTER AND ONLY AFTER you have MADE SURE that you filed your taxes, you may take your very own reusable travel mug into any Starbucks today and they will fill it up with FREE COFFEE. Not one of the fancy lady coffees, though -- just straight no-frills coffee, ALL FREE. I am strongly considering bringing in one of those giant gallon-sized camping thermoses this afternoon, with a totally straight face and the statement, "I have to go to my daughter's Brownie meeting tonight."
