As far as I know, that's been running for quite a long time. Ah well.

I drink mine with ice as well. Max 500ml a day I would say, with none on many days.


I didn't know that about the Quebecois. So is "Pepsis" meant in an affectionate or a derogatory way? :)


Well, it is derogatory, I'd call it a mild insult.

Traditionally, Quebecois tended to be less educated, more blue collar than white collar if you will. That has changed somewhat over the years. Access to higher learning has improved over time and now, there is a distinct white collar class among us.

It would take much more than that for me to feel insulted, really. But I do have a fairly thick skin.

Thanks for clarifying, souphound.

I learned about that when I lived in Montreal in the early 90's, but even then I thought it was a regional thing. I had friends from my hometown in Ontario that went to Bishops University in Sherbrooke, Quebec, and only when I went to visit them did I learn that the Quebecois students at neighbouring Sherbrooke College were known as "Pepsis". I've only very rarely heard it used outside of Quebec.

Cool. Thanks. I guess we're just generic frogs outside Quebec huh? :lol:

I myself went to Champlain Regional College, the CEGEP sharing the campus with Bishops in Lennoxville, for 2 years. Superb place isn't it. Bet you had a stop or two at the Golden Lion? :D

I remember going to sit at the bar one morning, with my girlfriend, to cram for a test a little later. First ones in got a free beer, which we did. We sat across from the teacher that was giving us said test. :lol: :lol:

bad post error.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
