everyone know's that Tully's is the place to go, if there's no Tim Horton's around.

Yay Tim Horton's. Real coffee, and doughnuts too. And Canadians!

Tim Horton's coffee is not real. It is, however, better non-real coffee.

Of course it's real. Coffee grounds with hot water dripped through them. That's a million times more real than some 20-ounce paper cup full of warm milk.

Ah, Winter. Still at it, I see.

I remember back when he was a contractor at Microsoft; this is maybe two years after he'd started his project, and he was going by John Winter back then.

Thought he was weird then, too.

He should make a movie and call it Venti Quintuple Me!

The sad part is he will probably make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Traveling around the country/world like that would be fun, but to that end. What a waste of time and energy, especially given the point of a chain like Starbucks is that their is supposed to taste the same whether you're in Bangor or Ballard.

This is not news???? This guy was in town in June for a screening of his movie at the STIFF film festival.

Tullys sucks at least as much as Starbucks.

Ever had a freakin' swirkle?

Tastes like and appears to be old coffee grounds tossed into some foam, and sold as a substitute for having a coffee shake. It was a travesty, and the worst coffee drink I have ever had the displeasure to spit out before I put into the trash.

To this day 'swirkle' is an epithet to me.
