I had to set my alarm so early today - because I‘ve been rostered on to work at a branch I don‘t particularly care for (🫣 their morning shift begins a whole hour before everywhere else - which I would struggle with at the best of times… let alone on day 3 of daylight savings time)

MrsMalaprop Oh no. Hope your day goes ok. 5m

Starbucks | Marie Bussing-Burks
post image

Disappointed to see a Starbucks opening in the suburbs of Melbourne.

Do they not remember losing 105 million dollars and closing 61 locations the last time they tried convincing Australians that Starbucks was good?

StaceGhost It‘s not their fault. They didn‘t realize Australia mastered the flat white and their version is an imperialist mockery. Just what I‘ve heard, anyway lol 3d
Teresereading I didn‘t like their coffee, but I liked getting the bags of used grounds for my compost! 3d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @StaceGhost, they were expensive and sugary 🤔 maybe they think as a society we are ready to accept both now. I‘m anti-(coffee)chains tbh - especially ones that dodge tax. And I‘m not a coffee drinker but since I live in Melbourne, home of the hipster, the coffee snob and the insatiable cafe bruncher - I have opinions 🤣 3d

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Teresereading, did not know that was something that they offered… composting is very cool! 3d
CarolynM I once went to the Starbucks that was briefly on the corner Bourke and Swanson Streets. It was a hot day and I enjoyed the iced drink I had there - I‘m not sure exactly what it was but I‘m very sure it wasn‘t coffee🤣 2d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @CarolynM, one of their famous faux iced coffees perhaps? 🤣 2d

Karisa Why does it feel like the first chapter would be about first owning one‘s own suckiness in the workplace? 😂. That whole list of titles is interesting 😂 6d
sisilia Hahahaha good ones 6d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Karisa, not a fan of the whole “maybe it‘s how you are reacting to the situation that‘s the problem” era of management - like yes, I‘m sure we all have some room to grow and improve but 🙃 I‘m over hearing about resilience when people are tired of chronic understaffing and the workloads that come with it. (maybe I should put my name down for it… that was a bit of a rant 😅) (edited) 6d
Karisa @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Agreed! Just had a lecture at teacher staff mtg from our principal today about using a canned SEL curriculum “with fidelity”. We were trying to tell him that students were not connecting to it—the curriculum isn‘t authentic. We were asking to teach the same concepts but in our own ways/customize to our Ss. Principal‘s solution: “you‘ve just got to sell it better. We paid a lot for it”(+ wants all on yard duty everyday)🤮 5d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Karisa, urgh! Why are people in management positions like that? 5d

FINALLY got around to watching this and it wasn‘t the train wreck I was kind of expecting (which is my default level of expectation for adaptations of books I loved reading)

BUT THEY CHANGED THE BREAKFAST SCENE!!! and that is a crime (there was also extensive time line change ups which made it feel a bit shallower IMO and nudged it into instalove territory)

sprainedbrain I agree that they made it more shallow. It‘s wasn‘t horrible though! 6d

Hanging up my entire shoe collection to dry in the rain … like a normal person.

Totally didn‘t say to myself, “this rain won‘t last” and put on another load… that I then also pegged out in heavier rain… that would be ABSURD.

I spotted this while browsing in a bookshop yesterday - and in a rare moment of restraint, checked to see if it was available at the library instead of just buying another book to sit on my giant to be read pile. So obviously, I started reading it via BorrowBox on the tram ride home & have since finished it. This is a uniquely Australian short story collection and I enjoyed it a lot, even as I whispered WTF more than once.

Eddie Perfect, my beloved!

The Australian cast for 9 to 5 is pretty damn amazing!

I haven‘t seen the movie but I endeavour to always say YES to going to the theatre (especially if it‘s at my Grandpa‘s suggestion because he‘s always happy to buy the tickets) - and I‘m so happy to have seen this - it was actually hilarious!

Recommended to all Melbourne based Littens!

My Mum insists that she spelled my name how it sounds… so this was extra funny to me - since I was out to lunch with Mum 😜

After being on holiday, in a different country (where tbh, being vegetarian wasn‘t that fun) I‘m once again counting my foodie blessings just by being home in Melbourne and having so many glorious glorious options.

Literary_Siren Maybe that‘s what my mom was thinking too. 😂 my name is spelled exactly how it sounds, Jayme. 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Literary_Siren, that could have been her thinking 🤔 3w
julesG Wait, you don't pronounce the R? 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @julesG, no you do *but* there is an alternate spelling that doesn‘t have the r but is pronounced the same… people also lean towards wanting to an add an e to the end or to get rid of the I for a Y. (in this instance I think he just took his best guess rather than asking me repeat my name - which is totally valid) (edited) 3w

Trying to build a magic school is turning into quite the headache for the second most powerful mage, Garrett - the Grand Sorcerer keeps going on side quests, some students are missing and Garrett‘s just about to notice that he‘s actually fallen in love with the handsome Prince Alexandre.

I think this is a prequel story to a full length novel - set in the same universe which I‘ll be adding asap to my kindle library.

This was such a sweet SWEET cozy fantasy read - when basically blind without his glasses Tyri is rushing to a job interview, in the rain - it‘s just his bad luck to be knocked down by a stranger - now soaking wet and with his glasses broken - the best he can hope for is being able to find his way home to his little sister… obviously things take several turns for the better 😉

I wish this had been longer 🥹

Another positive for working the weekend (aside from its proximity to a rather lovely bookstore) is that it‘s also within walking distance to a Brumby‘s bakery… once a prolific chain - they are now fairly rare - which is a shame because they do pies & pasties and apparently these sultana & cornflake biscuits… you wouldn‘t catch me eating a bowl of cornflakes but they work brilliantly here!
