sundown in the paris of the prairies...

wheat kings have all their treasures burried...

so i'm typing this little note from an internet kiosk in the banff mall. emily and i pulled into banff yesterday evening after being on the road for four days. we drove from hamilton through michigan, wisconsin, minnesota, north dakota, winnipeg, brandon, regina, moosejaw, calgary and finally arrived here in banff.

i'd just like to say one thing to my american neighbours to the south... you people have been DUPED. i say this because throughout my stay in your country, i injested some of the worst, i repeat, the WORST nasty, brown-coloured water ever brewed in history. apparently, someone has been telling you all that that vile beverage is coffee, but i assure you- it is not. in canada, coffee is a delicious, dark roasted and aromatic experience. every single cup of "coffee" that i had stateside tasted like shit and it would be a crime for this offense to continue. it's time for you all to stand up for yourselves and shout out loud "we want some tim horton's!!!!"

in other news, nothing in the world is more entertaining than a good, solid north country accent. it's like being in the movie "fargo"; the fun never ends!

that's it for now.

you've just not had coffee at one of the several (thousand) in lawrence, ks. while it's good, nothing completes the coffee experience quite like being mocked by some nose-ring hippie while they serve it to you.

and you tip them two cents.

That is because the Canadians are FRENCH. And the French know coffee. Come to South Louisiana and you would get to taste more great coffee, and even better food. :-)

Travel safe.

I was watching The Golden Girls the other day, and there was someone in the credits named Adria Horton. Take from it what you will, what I take from it is that you married a coffee shop.
