Offering to the Gods

While paying for my way overdue, much needed pedicure last Saturday at Michelle Le Nails I noticed a small shrine in the entrance to the shop. This isn't unusual, especially at an East Asian establishment [Michelle is Vietnamese], but what caught my eye were the offerings to the Gods in the shrine: Tim Hortons coffee and a glazed donut! These Gods must be Canadian!

Tim Hortons is as much a part of the Canadian landscape as a moose or a beaver [heehee!], though of course as soon as we left Brooklyn, TWO locations opened up in our old neighbourhood: one on Court St and one on Fulton! There are 11 locations in total in NYC. I don't even love TH that much, I just love that it's Canadian. It would have been nice to have a little piece of *home* while living in Brooklyn.
