FTFA: the woman, whose actual name is Beautiful Existence

That, right there, is why we can't have nice things.

Here's an idea. Cook healthily at home for a fraction of that $18 a day and donate the rest to the homeless or something. I'm sure a local shelter would love the $3,500+ she'd contribute at the end of it all.

/what a farking idiot

"The company pays good benefits for part-time workers," she explains. "That's where my money is going."

If you really want to do something, eat sensibly and donate your time and money to a food bank.

This lady spends almost as much on food a week than I can go through in an entire month! Then again, as a former starbucks barista, I liked her point about supporting employee benefits. I guess if someone has $550/month to blow at one place, its better its at Starbucks than Walmart (where I shop)-- more of it goes to the employees!

I wouldn't be surprised if this "diet" was more affordable than buying groceries at Whole Foods....

So she's going to eat nothing but sandwiches and bistro boxes for an entire year. Yeah, I give her a month before she gets a burger or a pizza somewhere else.

Wookie_Jesus: Like most women in search of free sperm, Beth and Nicole asked for artificial insemination, or AI. As opposed to natural insemination (code for actual sex), AI typically involves injecting fresh sperm into the vagina, or loading it into a latex cup that fits on the cervix. Beth and Nicole had to work around three people's schedules and an ovulation calendar, so the venues at which they met their donor had a saucy impromptu feel: a hotel, the back of the couple's SUV, a camper trailer, a Starbucks bathroom. At Starbucks, the donor ejaculated in the bathroom in private, exited, and handed the sperm-filled latex cup to Nicole, who in turn entered the bathroom and attached the cup to her cervix. As nature took its course, the three sat down for coffee together. "It wasn't my highest moment," says Beth. They didn't conceive.

What happened to the turkey baster? Does no one use a turkey baster any more for artificial insemination? Has the turkey baster gone the way of the douche bag? Or is it still relevant for AI?

From her blog:
" Mostly I have enjoyed tea iced in the summer or some chai varieties with streamed soy milk on cold days; soon my 20 minute visit turned into this new appreciation for tea related topics from the baked cinnamon apple herbal tea and ginger-infused sugar duo I picked up to the absolutely mouth-watering dinner creations a team member told me about trying on salmon by using their lapsang souchong as a rub."

From her writing style I would say she has already had waaaay too much caffeine.

JohnAnnArbor: Protein. Is there any at Starbucks?


I can always beat off into her latte and just say it was extra foam.

LordOfThePings: "I've been going in and getting their nutrition by the cup charts for all their serving sizes [...] I'm already getting a feel for what to eat - the plain nut pack as a snack because it only has 190 calories, compared to the piece of pumpkin bread."

And she doesn't sound naïve. Not at all.


Caffeine and only Starbuck's and she's looking to keep herself light? She'll be dead before she's bankrupt.

I saw the headline and already knew I would hate her. Then I saw her name and somehow ended up hating her even more
