Well, was there music? Romantic music?

The Age offers one of the best articles about the gossip speculating on a potential romantic linkage between unattached US Secretary of State Consoleeza Rice and famously-unattached Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay, Dr. Rice's self-described "fan" and the chap who convinced her to visit Halifax, then his home riding of Stellarton, as part of her 5th Anniversary 9/11 observations.

It included this highly amusing paragraph:

"'No, there were no candles,' State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in exasperation when asked for further details about a working dinner. He pointed out that the dinner was not quite intimate: 14 aides and six security guards
were present. 'It was a well-lighted dinner, with electricity-based lighting,'
he said."
Well, Peter took her to a Tim's for coffee. If that isn't a date by Canadian standards, I don't know what is.

Well, all I know is, my first date with this beautiful lady was a coffee at at Tims.

22 years and 5 kids later...

I'm just saying, is all.
