Grande Non-fat Chai Latte. With a bit of honey. Mmmmmm.

It's interesting, although Seattle is like all into coffee and stuff, a vast majority of the people living here still don't really know what a good cup of coffee is supposed to taste like.

Your choice sounds pretty good...although I'm of the opinion that life is too short for non-fat. Mmm...or is that life is shorter without non-fat?

Heh. I see the West Coast has made its way to Upper Canada.

As someone who has spent what must amount to a bucketful of cash on cappucino over the years (I had my first real cappucino on Commercial Drive in Vancouver in '83) I say: welcome to espresso-based drink addiction.

Yes - Starbucks has found its way here in a big way - and is fighting a good fight against our own version, Second Cup. They'll never compete with Tim Horton's though - that's a Canadian institution (but they don't make a Chai Latte).

Funny you should say "Upper Canada" - that's what Ontario was called before confederation, some 140 years ago (Quebec was Lower Canada). I don't know if it was intentional, but you seem like a pretty smart guy - so I'll assume so. Not to be confused with "Nothern Canada" of couse, which is a good 2 to 7 day drive north of here. I'm actually in southwestern Ontario, which is actually lower than Washington, Montana, Minnesota, North Dakota, and parts of Wisonsin, Michigan, New York, Maine, Vermont, and a few other states.

This last comment relegates me to the status of the typical self-conscious Canadian who feels the need to "set the facts straight" regarding our country to our American neighbours. I guess it's because we know so much about them. As our great Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau said, living next to America is like a mouse sleeping with an elephant.

I called it 'Upper Canada' because I'm in on the joke. :) As they say in those jingoistic Molson's ads, I-AM-CANADIAN.

I'll prove it:


There, that should convince you.

Oh geesh. So you are (you know all the code words).
