They go from a somewhat cool truck to a shitty, fugly car, an hybrid no less? What a letdown!

I guess that just means I won't have to waste my money and my tastebuds on Timmies' coffee. :)

Rabbits here are dropping the winter white camo and moving to a mix brown white fur pattern. Spring must defiantly be on it's way as mother nature knows best. ;D

You're lucky to be seeing rabbits 3rd Herd!  The only thing that's turning from white to brown is the slush on the side of the road (sigh).  You're right, Mother Nature knows best, but not in Toronto :(.

Shows that I don't have a coffee addiction at all when I don't even have a clue that this campaign comes at the same time each year.  :blotto:

Didn't win anything though...damn it!

I haven't ever won anything on a roll up the rim... not even a coffe. It's actually become a joke between my wife and I.
