The ordinary palmier

I bought the last palmier at Ken's Artisan Bakery today. It didn't have "eat me" written on it, except of course figuratively.

The sun came out, the temperature rose, and I neither shrank nor grew as I ate the palmier at my bus stop. The bus back downtown was late and crowded. I got off several blocks early and stopped in my walk to listen to a drummer making wonderful sounds on two five-gallon plastic buckets.

It was the newspaper headlines that seemed like something the hookah dragged in. Condi is confirmed as the nation's most senior statesperson. Some dark-souled suicide in a Jeep kills dozens by causing a trainwreck after changing his mind. The religious right accuses Democratic senators of prejudice. President Bush says, "When I said 'ending tyranny' I didn't mean 'ending tyranny.' I sort of meant 'America should beat the crap out of everyone else in the world,' kind of."

But damn, that palmier was good.

It makes me so happy that you called it a palmier instead of a...whatever these freaking English Canadians call it. Which makes me think I'm long overdue for an "I miss home" rant.

I just missed you on chat last night, so I'll ask here: what do they call them in BC?

I live in Ontario, actually, but the answer is "palm cookies". Freaks.
