Talk about HEAT!


I went to my grandmothers and her window unit air conditioner broke and it feels like an oven in her house. Its so hot I swear I saw the devil ordering ice cream. I feel bad for people in the South West who dont have air.

yeah , for me ice coffee(coffee with ice?coffee served cold?put some ice into the coffee?) taste funny , even under hot weather(warmth?) , like sweating like hell after really tuff working , i still go for thick warm black coffee , while everybody else are drinking icey stuffs or biting water melons(with ocassional stylish spitting) , really hard to elaborate the passion for thick black coffee , even if your heart pumping somewhat faster then normal but still can feel the bliss out of it ...

oh , especially when you are facing linux ...

hmm ... after some light visiting of Tim Horton web site , noticed that he go for a :: "If it's not sold within 20 minutes of being brewed, it's not served at all."

guess that from right now onwards , for me , things "Cappucino Cappucino" will definately taste different from what i had tasted before ...

great !!

To tell the truth, the very first time I even heard about Ice Coffee was in an American TV-serie, Smallville. Lana asked Clark if he wanted some Ice Coffee on Episode "Heat". I was like "wtf". I love Ice Tea, but was really curious about Ice Coffee. We love coffee a lot too, but clearly less then our American friends ^_^.

infact ice(or iced ?) coffee are not that unfamiliar at my place , sometimes i like to bring my family to those thai area where you can find "every" thing from thailand and they are selling cold coffee with ice-cubes at their eating shops ...

those ice coffee are kind of thick but not really because of the coffee powder , infact they are using just "normal" coffee powder(those powder with larger percentage of maize i guess) , very sweet and taste like coke(or rootbeer) with coffee-flavored ice-cream topping already melted into that drink , i don't really like it because of that sweetness(makes me dizzy , can't feel the actual bliss out of my ciggarettes) but my family really love it ...

I must live in the wrong Ohio, because I have never heard of or seen a Tim Horton's.
