Over the summer, I read an article in the Toronto Star about coffee tasting. Somewhere along the line, it also mentioned that we Canadians are blessed to have some of the world’s best coffee at our disposal. Of course, this came as no surprise to me. After all, everything is better north of the 49th. But, I find myself in a quandary: I no longer like coffee.

Well, I suppose I shouldn’t say that don’t like it. I do still like it. It just doesn’t really cut for me anymore though. I have no idea how or why such a thing happened, but I’m quite sure of it now. During the first week after the start of classes, I purchased a Mocha Latte at Second Cup. I didn’t enjoy. Then just this week past, I bought myself a Vanilla Bean Latte. And it was horrible.

That’s horrible. I need to find myself a new favourite drink. Any suggestions?

And in honour of his appearance tomorrow at Canada’s Wonderland…

Hush little baby don’t you cry

Daddy’s gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything’s gonna be alright

The Lord’s gonna answer your prayer tonight

Hush little baby don’t you cry

Daddy’s gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything’s gonna be alright

The Lords gonna answer your prayer

Last night you had a dream you was the homecoming queen

Today you’re 18, happy birthday Irene

quit school you had to drop out to raise your little child

Doesn’t seem to be anyone around

You’ve got to reach up to touch rock bottom

The powers that be keep you downtrodden

Daughter of Zion, I heard you prayer

Just cast your cares and please beware of snakes

They come in all shapes and sizes

Tempt you, put scales on your eye lids

Don’t waste your sorrows

They’ll give you strength tomorrow…tomorrow

Your Calvary’s about to come so

Keep your head up, don’t you ever let up

This storm will pass you’ll be ready for the next one

Hey little girl with the pressures of the world on you shoulders

Don’t say that it’s over

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares

And I’ll be there so don’t you fear

Irene, I carried you when you was to weak to walk

I took to you when you gave your heart to God

Faithful and true, that’s what I’ll always be to you

Believe in you, believe in Me and these mountains have to move

You have dreams and aspirations

I knew you before Creation

Your foundation’s solid

I will build you a palace, restore your soul

You’ll be up for any challange

Many storms are on the way; better sharpen your faith

Count the cost, take up your Cross

And wear it everyday

Rest in me and I will give you strength

Blessed is she, Irene, who seeks my face

Hey little girl with the pressures of the world on you shoulders

Don’t say that it’s over

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares

And I’ll be there so don’t you fear (2x)

Everything’s gonna be alright

Be alright

Father I’m stronger, I said

Father I’m stronger, I said

Father I’m stronger

Than when I first believed yeah

I say hey little girl with the pressures of the world on her shoulders

Don’t say that it’s over

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares

And I’ll be there, so don’t you fear

The Lord’s gonna answer your prayer tonight

The Lord’s gonna answer your prayer
