It used to be ok, then it was bought out and just went to shit.

I might get an ice cap there occasionally, at most once a month because my one coworkers offers to get me something before he comes in.
At least we've proven Canadian education is better than America's, which really isn't saying much.

Also what the frig is an ice cap?

I think I've willingly been in a Coffee Time once in the last 5 years, and it was because there was literally nowhere else open at the time to get something to drink.

As far as being "nice" in the sense of non-scummy and lack of prosties, it really depends on location. The one on the corner by my house is owned and run by a nice family. It's clean, the clerks are polite and fill your order quickly without screwing it up.

*IMO
Since DD is PROUD BAWSTON TRADITION, NOT UNLIKE THE RED SAWKS AND HATING ON JETER, I imagine the Mass-area DD's may be ran a tad better than the ones in my area. It's definetly a love hate relationship, because they're certainly NOT the best, but they don't smell like pee and have the stuff I need to get the job done, not to mention are EVERYWHERE.

Also what the frig is a Finagle?

I agree with Hag's assessment that DD thrives on being an accessible, affordable, reliable aggregate of breakfastish items you can probably get better elsewhere, but why bother?

P.S. Only one of y'all wants me to serenade you? I'm soooo insulted. It's not like I'll ever contact you again, I hate contacting people.
My experience with Horton's involves Penn Station, which always smells awful, and a North Carolina gas-station, which barely counts. The reason i ask is because I know a few Americans who swear TH is the 2nd coming of breakfast chains, but my urine-scented encounters have left me jaded.

And PD, I prefer the live experience, usually followed by a drunken Victor requesting that you sing to SV on the night of your marriage. Still one of the creepiest things I've heard to date for reason.

Finally read through the last 30 pages of this thread that I missed while I was on vacation. o: Looks about par for the course.



The building I live in is going to have some construction done to it this summer. So now I have scaffolding and netting to look at for the next 3 months. .-. And I guess I can't work on cosplay stuff in my underwear until after the construction guys leave at 3:30 every day.

There's only one way to settle the Tim Hortons question - you all have to come visit Canadaland.

This is where the shameless plug for Costume Con 32 goes, right?

But nakedness was within the last 2 pages, which is reasonably similar.

Got a call from my mom. My dad made it through the surgery really well and may even be released tomorrow and back on his feet on his regular schedule within a week or so.

It takes a lot to upset me when I'm drunk, but Vic managed to do that A LOT that weekend. Also see Xais.

To be fair, I did make a fisting joke above.

Darn right xD thank you.

It wasn't an easy conversation to have with my mother about what would we do if 'something happened' while he was in surgery and today was full of stress and worry.

The phone just rang out of the blue (it's about 23:15 here). I bricked myself because I thought there must be an emergency of some sort (half my family's in and out of hospital with something or other), but it turned out to be a wrong number. -o-

It was probably just me, trying to reach Fullbleed so I could sing him a Bananarama song.

That sounds plausible.
