First outdoor entry of 2006

<gloat>

I know that it's fleeting, since it is only early March, but I would just like to point out that I have been sitting on a picnic bench outside the Linux Caffe (sic) for the last hour, drinking coffee and working on my laptop. That's how nice it is here today.

Take that, Vancouver.

I want you to know that the word "caffe" is the Italian spelling of coffee shop and doesn't deserve a "sic," you French bastard.
Wait, Stringer, French right? Bastard.

I did actually know that, but since it's an altogether rare thing to put on a sign in Toronto (I can't even recall a coffee joint in Little Italy called a caffe) I wanted to point out that it wasn't a typo.

It's more of a "Yeah, I know that cafe normally has one 'f' but that's not how this place works, a'ight!?" Sort of a shout out to you and your Italian pals.

Besides, this is coming from the Italian who couldn't help me translate the cooking instructions on a bag of polenta?
