    I do really like those ones! My absolute favourite has been the cherry ones, with both the blueberry and orange ones as very close runner-ups. Unfortunately, *all* of those have been limited editions, and the blueberry ones are the only ones I’ve seen return on some kind of cyclical basis.

    As he should.

    And isn't that opinionist Robyn Urback just fawning all over him, poor innocent baby!

    Yeah, that story made me laugh. I didn't realize fonts could be so important, but it makes a lot of sense in this context.

    So, I've had the Tiramisu donut tonight. It's basically a version of the Boston Cream with coffee-flavoured custard in the middle, with chocolate and coffee drizzled on top, and with a coffee bean in the middle to top it off. It's very sweet. I rarely eat donuts these days, so considered that a splurge.

    Big election in Nanaimo, BC today - currently our Provincial government is being held hostage by the bloodsucking Joe Horgan and his shameful socialist NDP gov't - only because they joined up with the Greens after the provincial election a couple of years back

    Fast forward to today where there's a by-election happening because the NDP MLA decided to become the Mayor of Nanaimo, leaving his seat open

    If the Liberals - led by Tony Harris, whom I know personally (true story - he slapped me in the face once, but he's a good guy) - win this election then it triggers the provincial election to happen sooner than originally intended, and given the consistent and monumental fuck ups by the NDP that could mean they'll be turfed out on their parasitic asses well before they get to finish up with their evil plans

    Fingers are crossed!

    ^ For anyone looking for closure on this, the NDP won the seat. I guess the evil plans continue for now. ;)

    In other, non-political news...

    Have you ever thought to yourself, "You know, I could really use a coffee, but I wish I didn't have to go through the hassle of *drinking* it"? No? Well too bad, because Tim Hortons is answering the call that no one made, and is introducing double double coffee in bar form!

    Tim Hortons to offer edible double double coffee bar

    They note it's similar to a chocolate bar, but doesn't contain any chocolate. (So, completely unlike a chocolate bar, then?) It is expected to roll out in Fall of this year.

    At the very least, I guess you wouldn't have to worry about accidentally spilling your coffee on yourself...

    "What're those crumbs on your shirt?"

    A double double ice cream bar would be tasty

    Given tit's a riding that the NDP have held for decades (49 our of the past 56 years) I'm not surprised they held it.

    Looking at the article, and it sounds a lot like their take on the Awake bar. Never personally tried it, but that was something that was pitched on Dragon's Den a few years ago. Personally, I don't really see the appeal.
