Adieu, Adieu!

“Adieu, adieu my good friends all,

And be kind to [the Synesso]”

-“Bonnie Barbara Allen”, Traditional Scottish Ballad

Unfortunately I must take my leave of you all! Sad, yes. Not really “adieu”, though, more of an “au revoir” – I’ll be back at Christmas, so look for me to be putting in some time then. My last shift was last night and you can read all about it here. Also to be found on that page is the story of the last of Sammy Piccolo’s WBC blend!

It’s been fun, cafca. See you soon.



PS – For those of you who don’t know, I’ve started a blog to keep my friends and family up with life in Montreal. It can be found here.

PPS – If you got the joke in the edited version of “Bonnie Barbara Allen” above, you just earned yourself big points in my books!

    Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
    Great Chieftan o’ the (cafe)-race!

      Sounds like you got the Burns joke then! I’m quite proud of that one…trouble is, I don’t have any friends who like that poem and like coffee enough to understand the joke…I’m glad it’s not wasted.
      I’ll definitely keep in touch – look for the odd cross-country post up here.
