I read an older post of yours about being asked if you worship the devil, if it were me, I would just say yes and wipe the smile off his face. It would be a lie, but one of the few I would feel good about. I remember in high school a counselor came up to me and asked if I was part of an alternative lifestyle... I think I was wearing a Cradle of Filth shirt that day. Apparently people had been talking about me to him, which is ridiculous because, besides my strange taste in music, I was quiet, polite, never hung outside the school smoking like the kids who never got over being 'popular' in middle school, never did drugs or drank, but I was the one he approached looking to help. Funny.

And now I just blend in. Boo. Sucks to grow up, but like you said, the benefits are that I can eat whatever I damn well please, because my parents subscribe to the SAD (standard American diet), and I'm vegan/pescatarian on my own.

As far as your comment on my post, a traditional macchiato (Italian for 'marked') is a double-shot of espresso and a dollop of milk foam, which 'marks' the espresso as having milk in it. That's how waiters would tell them apart from espressos that did not have milk in them, because the crema of an espresso would mask if there were any milk in it. I don't know what a caramel macchiato is, or why it's so big, or what the 'mark' is.

I think in all the time I've worked, I've had one customer who ordered a macchiato knowing what it was. It saddens me to know that Starbucks has ruined coffee.

I used to shop at Hot Topic back in high school, a little bit for band shirts in college.. but honestly, there's no hope for that store. Not since they're owned by Abercrombie & Fitch. Their music drives me crazy. Good luck ;)
