chartreuse & speaking american

i bought a full-sized bottle of chartreuse yesterday --the first liquor i've had that wasn't in those easily-swipable miniature bottles or from shots at a bar. the first taste was horrible, a taste like cough syrup & black pepper, & i started regretting getting the $30 bottle instead of springing for the $70 one. but it turned out that it was so damn nasty because of the iced coffee-thingie i'd mixed it with. i hate coffee. i'm now drinking it straight up or on the rocks & it's definitely more than decent -- maybe even better than tequila! i finished off about a quarter of the bottle last night...with no ill effects
i'm also reading this book, do you speak american, by robert macneil, that's pretty interesting despite the fact that it only mentions canada thrice (with one of them being a "joke": canadians are so polite they thank the atm machine). i don't think i 'speak american' though my pronounciation of some words are different than those of other native torontonians & i don't know why.
