The Ministry of Coffee

When I'm running ahead of schedule in the morning, I like to stop by Tim Horton's for coffee before work. One sunny morning, a few weeks ago, was one of those days, so I pulled up to the speaker at the drive-thru, ordered a small coffee with two creams, and drove up to the window.

As I was doing the money exchange bit, I heard the lyrics "So there was only one thing that I could do was ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long.." sound off from my iPod, following by the crashing of industrial guitars. It startled the guy handing me my coffee, who started eyeing me suspiciously. After all, a woman dressed in a skirt and suit jacket couldn't possibly be listening to Ministry... could she? I smiled brightly at the employee, took my coffee, and drove away. It still gives me a chuckle to think about it now.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
