Bad news: it rained all day today
Good news: it only snowed for ~1hr

Bad news: there's a new Tim Horton's ~5mins walk from here
Good news: it rained all day today

I'm not sure if having a Tim Horties so close by is a good thing or a bad thing yet. I haven't had a decent doughnut shop within walking distance since I lived in Montreal. And yes, I did do the 12AM doughnut runs when I was up late studying back then. ^^; I was a silly goose, what can I say? :P

But the main thing of note: Heiki part 1's plot point summary is now done. I really hope the remaining three books don't take that long. And I still have... two? three? other intervening books to go through with interesting little tidbits like how Ayako's bath even has potted plants in it. ^^;

Thanks for the heads up on the GH plot point summary update. Even just a quick glance made it obvious that you have added a lot. I'm going to have go through it with a fine tooth comb. Not that I'm complaining!

Every Canadian I know swears by Tim Horton's doughnuts. I see you're no exception. One of these days, I swear I'm going to find a way to try them. I find it hard to believe that they're better than Krispy Kreme even though every Canadian I know insists that they are.

*laughs* I'm a Westerner so there isn't much beyond Tim Horton's for good yeast-based doughnuts here. When I was living out East, there were no Tim Horton's, so I ended up going to Dunkin' Donuts all the time--they were good too. (FWIW, I also swear by Mister Donut in Japan; they've got good doughnuts... although I tend to go for the cake-style doughnuts more there. :P Actually, MisDo has some interesting and unique doughnuts. ^^;;)

Krispy Kreme tried breaking into the Canadian market a few years ago and we had a few shops open up in this city too, but generally they were no match for Tim Horton's. ^^;; (Most of the shops died within several months to a year despite a fair amount of advertising and anticipation.) The other problem with having a Tim Horton's though is that not only is it a good place to stop by for a quick coffee and a doughnut, you can drop in to have a soup and sandwich for lunch. ^^;

I don't think we have a Tim Horton's here in AZ. wah!! And they closed down the Krispy Kreme that was here!!

Really? She does? Hmm... now that I might be able to incorporate.

Gah! All these wonderful spoilers and there's only so much I can use with Shades of Lust. *drops head* wah.
