cherry coke

on friday night gf and i went to a sportsbar-type-place to watch a little hockey and place some trivia. just kind of a relaxing night. not sure if i've mentioned this before but gf is a teacher; i don't know what those kids do to her all week but by friday nights she is completely exhausted! i've learned not to plan any big dates on friday nights, hehe.

anyway...it was a younger crowd at the bar, most people in their mid-20's. we finally got seated, then the waitress came over and said:

"can i get you guys something to drink? we have coke, cherry coke, or...(pauses to wait for us to order something)..."

ha ha. 95% of the kids in the joint were drinking beer. funny! we glanced at each other with a quizzical look and then chuckled to ourselves. we did end up ordering diet cokes anyway but i thought it was funny. if only she knew i was 31.

then afterwards we decided to go see bl00d diamonds. its pretty good, worth seeing. i'd rate the movie a 7.0-7.5, but i'd give the acting a 9. DiCaprio was very very good, along with the supporting cast. also, any movie that ends up inspiring the viewer to pursue research on the topic following the viewing, has to say something.

tonight we are going to dinner and to see a play at the new guthrie theater.

on saturday i ran just under 12 miles, averaging around 9:15 to 9:25. started out feeling weak but then settled in. i only ran 3 days this past week, that sucks. this week is going to be more travel and potentially long hours, we'll see.

finally, i think i lost my fantasy football playoff game which is depressing because i had a great regular season record.


  • You might have to give GF a stone other than a diamond in the ring. My engagement ring is an emerald; do those have the same terrible history?
