How Could Something So Good Be So Evil?


I have learned recently that the French Vanilla Cappuccinos, that I so dearly love, are heart-attacks in a cup. Put on your sad faces people... this is depressing news. While somewhere in the back of my mind I knew that something that was so wonderfully delicious could never be healthy, I didn't consider that it would be that bad for me. Apparently the blended cream with the sugar and lovely vanilla is not heart-healthy. Who knew? (whistling innocently).

Tim Hortons, (my favourite coffee joint), has released a health check guide with all the fat and calorie counts for all of their products. DO NOT READ THIS EVIL RUBBISH! IT WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE. I could have looked interestingly at the cover and left the shiny pamphlet alone, but no, I picked it up and looked inside. Now nothing will ever be the same. The long, and short of it is... drinking an extra large french-vanilla cappuccino is the equivalent of eating a McDonalds big mac sandwich. WHOA. I drink, or should switch to past-tense here and say drank, at least one and occasionally two or three of these monsters PER DAY. No wonder my pants don't fit! I tried to sooth myself with the knowledge that I purchase a low-fat yogurt with my evil-calorie-fest of a coffee everyday, but so far that's not helping. Be wary of the hidden beverage fat! You too could be a victim!

Commiserations... however, I am so pleased to discover you have forgiven the poor ! against which you decided to rail in yesterday's post, at least enough to type it in today's offering. Life would be bland without its tiny, leaping joyfulness ! Or perhaps !!!, just for fun...

Jinksy - I don't hate the !, I actually use it quite often. I just find it difficult to get around it when it's used on every sentence... I start to loose the message and become distracted by all the !!!

Who would have thought! I never...! I thought it was the cookies that were the guilty ones, but no! Black coffee or herbal tea from now on. With cookies ;-)

The cookies are probably healthier than the yummy french vanilla! How wrong is THAT?

Personally, I enjoy my French Vanilla Cappuccinos with a coupla scoops of Fruit Loops and a side order of exclamation points. We have so much in common!!!

Rats! I wandered over here from somewhere, I forget where, only to find my beloved French Vanilla Cappuccinos are out to get me. Well, actually I only get one when i go to the airport, which is hardly ever, and never when I'M going someplace, just to pick somebody up or drop somebody off, often a somebody who is taking my camera but not me... so I guess I can still have my treat - it's better than a tee-shirt.
