I did the design today for the only Starbucks daring enough to allow me to do their coffee ad board. (Starbucks official policy is that only the actual employees can do designs on the board.) Instead of the usual Christmas malarkey, I skipped over to the New Year and the Inauguration, which is going to be a huge thing here in the DC area. Raise a Starbucks espresso truffle to the New Year and hope for the best! I suspect however that Year 2009 will bring some heavy life changes for me regarding my family.
