Yes We Have No BUX…

April 1, 2013

As much as I loved our Costa Rica vacay, I confess to visiting our local BUX twice a day since we’ve been back. Sigh of delicious relief. All is right with the world.

There is NOTHING like walking to Bux in a snowstorm – full of Canadian drama.

A Week Without Tazo Chai Latte

February 2, 2013

Trapped in a hotel in Mexico, unable to leave except to go to the office, accompanied by armed guards the entire time.

His 15 Minutes of Fame

My husband is very pleased with himself. Our local BUX has named his drink after him.

The Two Debbie’s

January 24, 2013

Working in NYC this week. Ordered two drinks for myself and my friend Lisa. They asked for our names to mark the cups which came back marked as Debbie and Debbie. Must be my Canadian accent.

After driving away from BUX, I discovered lipstick, weirdly, on the middle of my cup. There is no order in the universe today.

Early morning chat

January 12, 2013

My NYC friend stayed over last night. She says she now has 6,000 people working for her. She forgot to bring socks and underwear for the weekend. Hard to understand how both these sentences refer to the same person.

Hotel Bux

January 12, 2013

Why is it that hotel BUX drinks are never as good as the regular kind? How hard can it be to steam milk and add that Tazo Chai mix? Although of course, it’s better than NOTHING. Which was the alternative.

BUX in Chicago

I love that my drink tastes the same in every city. Establishes order in the universe.

Surreal Experience

January 5, 2013

My friend Karol at Dundas & Chestnut today said a man stomped from table to table asking why people wouldn’t tell him the time, while a slow, sexy version of The Entertainer played in the background.

Unionville with Peter

January 4, 2013

The Unionville Starbucks is LOVELY. A fireplace, comfy chairs, and a dear friend to laze away the morning with, post new year’s. Who could ask for anything more??

My friend Kim’s two year old Billy sanguinely enjoys his hot chocolate.

BUX Bliss

December 30, 2012

After an intense holiday week, Garry and I took our eReading devices and camped out for a blissful hour. I nearly whimpered with ecstasy. Relaxed ecstasy. There needs to be a new word for that.

Playdate at BUX

December 29, 2012

Bruce and I took Abby and Elena to the Christie & Dupont location for hot chocolates, one of which promptly up ended all over the floor. Many tears. Some of them were even Bruce’s.

Boxing Week shopping better with BUX

December 27, 2012

We started our shopping trip with the BUX at the corner of Avenue and Bloor, a relatively new location with upscale decor and a great view of the church that nestles below the condo. The visit gave us a shot

Boxing Day Visit

December 26, 2012

My brother-in-law doesn’t like to visit BUX because he doesn’t understand how it works so he forgot what my sister-in-law asked him to get and he panicked and ordered her the wrong thing.

My very first blog post

December 26, 2012

December 25th is a great day to start a BUX blog, a Christmas present from my thoughtful and technologically ept husband. Who doesn’t believe that BUX should be open on Christmas day – too akin to third world labour. I
