coffee

Yesterday, I obtained eight books from the University of Toronto for the fabulous price of six dollars. And six dollars Canadian, no less. They are, in no particular order: The God of Love by J. K. Heydon, Sunshine Sketches of Little Town by Stephen Leacock (A book that I have yet to finish; perhaps having my own copy will provide an incentive to do so.), Let The People Think by Bertrand Russell, The Wines of France by Andre L. Simon, Candid Canadiana by Vincent Geller, With Lawrence of Arabia by T. E. Lawrence, a Tyndale translation of the New Testament and a collection of rhymes and poems, Christmas Verse.

The allure of the used book sale is something that I have never been able to resist. I think it has more to do with the possibility of finding a very old book than anything else. Last summer I purchased Volume I of The Life and Epistles of Saint Paul which, if the date on the book is to be believed, was published in 1868. Imagine that: a book that's almost seven times older than I am. 136 years old.

Speaking of aging, Second Cup is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Latte. For a limited time (until February 24th) you can get a regular Chai Latte, Vanilla Latte, Cafe Latte or Chocolate Lover's Latte for $2.07 including tax. That's just great. I recommend a Chocolate Toffee or Banana Chocolate Latte; they're both perfectly bittersweet.

And if you are, like myself, a person that drinks a lot of coffee, then here's reason for you to rejoice. The Hotmail users among us might have already read this, but for those who haven't, it turns out that coffee is good for more than just keeping you awake. I find this most fortunate because keeping me awake is something that coffee never seems to be able to do. What I can't find is the link to the article. Sorry.

Don't know if I've posted this song before.

Smellin' Coffee
Chris Rice

Last thing I remember, sayin' bye to yesterday
Glad to see it over, pullin' covers over my head
But what were You doin' while I dreamt the night away
'Cause I can tell that somethin's different
and my eyes ain't even open yet

I'm smellin' coffee
Birds are singin' just outside
Here comes Your mercy streamin' in with the morning light
My heart is racing waking up to Your smile
It's a good morning, yeah
It's a good morning

Well I remember readin' You're the God who never sleeps
And while I've been dreamin' You've been singing over me, yeah
Singin' about my freedom, wakin' me up to hear Your song,
And now Ican't dance hard enough
'Cause yesterday is gone, gone, gone!

I'm smellin' coffee
Birds are singin' just outside
Here comes Your mercy streamin' in with the morning light
My heart is racing waking up to Your smile
It's a good morning, yeah
It's a good morning

Every little breath, every heartbeat
Is a gift of love that You give to me
You keep givin' even when I'm asleep
'Cause I know You never stop watching over me
I wake up, my past is gone
'Cause Your mercy's new with the mornin' sun
I'm forgiven, I'm free, it's a brand new day
'Cause Your faithfulness is the greatest!

I'm smellin' coffee
Birds are singin' just outside
Here comes Your mercy streamin' in with the morning light
My heart is racing waking up to Your smile
It's a good morning, yeah
It's a good morning
