How on earth did they pronounce it?

They pronounced it San "Loo-ee" Obispo. *shaking head* Shameful. Just shameful.

That's all I could come up with ... my boyfriend (also from CA) and I sat here trying to come up with something other than the Spanish or the Americanized way to say it -- and I finally said, "unless they pronounced it like it was French? San Louie?" But I guess I'm glad to say I've never heard anyone say it that way in real life.

Grey's Anatomy drove me crazy the first season. They live in Seattle, one of THE espresso capitols of the country and they said in several episodes, "get me a mocha latte".

Excuse me? I live in Portland, which also loves espresso, and people always call it a "mocha". Just a mocha. No "latte" tacked on. Obviously, the writers didn't know their espresso the first season . . .

It also drove me bonkers that the characters would get some sort of coffee drink in a paper cup and lid and obviously have an empty cup by the way they carried it.

They would then take a sip from the supposedly full cup and tilt the cup like it was half empty. Get your props right, people!
