Rant #1

I just spent a ridiculous amount of time in the Tim Horton's drive thru. I was stuck. Wedged in between other cars. People could walk inside and get their orders and be gone before I moved one car length. Couples could have met, fallen in love and gotten married in the time I was in the line-up. I was there so long, a small child could have grown-up, gone to college, worked at Timmies part-time to pay for school, graduated, met the man of her dreams, gotten married, had a kid of her own who then grows up and works in the same damn drive-thru.

And, was my coffee satisfying? No. Becuase I never got the coffee. Because as soon as I was about 3 cars away from the speaker, the power went out. They shut everything down. "Sorry, cars. Go home now. We know you've been waiting long enough for entire generations to die off and be reborn again, but we have no power. Sorry."

Is this Monday? Did somebody switch the days around again?

This is a lovely place. I will be sure to return again and again even though I know nothing about yarn, crocheting or knitting.

I had a similar experience while at the In-N-Out Burger drive thru, although they didn't close but that was no "in and out" experience, I tell ya. They could've changed the name to In-N-Wait for it-Burger. Sheesh!

BTW, nice blog.

That was a royal hose-job.
I was a Tim Bitch for nearly two years in my younger days.
When I quit, I dropped 15 lbs in about 6 weeks without even trying.
