i've only had espresso a few times. to me it had a strong muddy flavor, that is, until the bumblebee buzzy high kicked in....so, how is diluted (elongated) espresso different from regular bold brewed coffee?

The method of passing the hot water through the ground beans quickly, under pressure, brings out subtle flavours. It even tastes different from mocha, the stuff made in the little stove-top espresso makers.

BTW, I don't use "bold" beans. I use a nice medium dark brown roast. Any darker than that and it tastes burnt to me. They don't use really dark roasts in Italy or Paris.

It's yucky outside, so I will stay indoors. It's not that cold, but there is slush every where and it's gonna freeze into a skating rink.

I will be playing Gardens of Time online, checking in here, and playing with the iPhone a friend gave me. She has a newer one.

Unfortunately, I don't think they will be performing. I would love to see them strip wax.

I got the best laugh. Told the girls in the restaurant about the "male strippers" and they thought it was great. Once the guys were all there they announced overhead about the retirement party for the male strippers. And the girls kept coming over to talk to the guys about being (wax) strippers...we had a good time! One of the girls's husband is on the floor crew in the restaurant, she's excited about telling him he is a male stripper working at Hooters.
