I can't help it. I love it. I adore it, if I was a crack head, it would be my crack. If I was a teacher, it would be my lesson book, if I was a lawyer, it would be my quick comeback and sharp smile. I think about it all the time, I repeat its name whenever I can. I don't care how expensive it is, it's worth every penny. I don't care that its family is going down the tubes. Sometimes I find myself waking up in the middle of the night wondering if it is ok to go visit my dear friend. I'll whisper its name in the hopes that it will soon appear...venti-no-foam-two-equal-latte. I soon realize that it wasn't meant to be, but comfort myself with the simple phrase, "soon my friend, very soon."

In the office, I find myself looking at people, evaluating them, wondering if they are as good as you-know-what. I can almost feel the warmth that comes from its fresh, smooth and rich body. No one is as good as my venti-no-foam-two-equal-latte, no one. My favorite daily memory is when I arrive first thing in the morning to pick it up for work, and my friends in green immediately know who I'm there to see. They acknowledge my presence with a wink and prepare it for the day's adventures. I just can't do anything without my friend by my side, keeping my hand comfortably warm as we leave its home. Now my day can begin...

Everyone, please warmly welcome James Finn to the site. The first new blood in a while.

Nice first post! This could easily be a "Kids in the Hall" skit. One must wonder which Kid would don the turtleneck for the lead role. My guess would be Kevin McDonald.

New blood! New blood!

Mmm, where did you find this guy? His blood's tasty!

all i know is, like huffington post, doesn't pay

Craig: He found us using the magic of the Internet.

James: Yes, but unlike the HuffPo, Unloosen isn't ad-supported; it's Chris-supported.

I love the site, the visuals and the words are a lot of fun. Thanks for having me!

We're very glad to have you! I look forward to more Finn-tastic creations.

Great piece, though you will never find a single soul who measures up to a decent latte. I loathe Equal, but, for some reason, I often get carried away with the image of a perfect pair of lipsticked lips requesting in girlish tones Equal in anything.

Also, it's staggering how the similarities between this joint and Miss Huffington's place keep piling up.
