A Good Friday

Today was a good Friday.

From the perspective of a good catholic boy - it's the beginning of the Easter Holiday, a time to spend with family.

I ran 8 km today, in 41 minutes - so I was pumped about that...looking forward to running a number of 10 km races this summer - not running to "race" in as much as it is to finish and feel good about it. The goal of running a 20 km (half marathon) by the end of the summer seems plausible.

Not a whole lot going on today in the world of sports - with the exception of the NCAA tournament. Duke lost if anyone outside North Carolina cares. I wonder how many brackets were messed up because of that loss.

The NHL announced that there will not be an entry draft this year - saw Roy Mlacar's big head mouthing something in the tube last night - that guy's head is the size of a pumpkin, and he really gets on my nerves. He is quite possibly the most full of shit person in the world - the guy should be selling insurance or something.

World Cup qualifying goes again this weekend and on Wednesday - not too concerned with any of the games tomorrow...but Portugal plays Slovakia on Wednesday - a win almost assures us a spot in Germany 2006 - remember, I wanna see Hazel announce that Portugal has won the world cup. *smile*

What hockey fans have been reduced to is to wonder about what happens to Sidney Crosby now - I think its pretty simple. The Maple Leafs sign him, and we say thank you very much NHLPA and the rest of the owners in the NHL. How would that look? Crosby wearing the blue and the words of Napoleon Dynamite - SWEET.

Speaking of which, I saw that movie today - it was hysterical. I'm still laughing at the "kipper" when he's all dressed in black and say "Peace Out" before heading off with "LaFAWNduh" - hahahaha. Classic. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Hazel Mae would find the movie hysterical. She seems to have a pretty wicked sense of humour, so I'm betting she'd love it. hmmmm a bottle of vintage port and Napoleon Dynamite. YESSSSSSSSS. I also finally saw the movie Ray - I didn't realized he had so many damn cool songs, it looks like a soundtrack worth picking up.

Given that today was a slow day - why not talk about last night? Went out to see a friend of mine and his band play downtown. It was a pretty good show, lots of good looking "audience members" - though I still have trouble seeing some of those women into that music - but hey, I'm out of touch, I'm an old guy.

Being out last night reminded me of a cruel irony. I swear to God..for some reason, I don't know why...Filapina girls like me. There I was in this bar with some of my friends, and why does one of my buddies notice that two cute Filipina girls were looking at me? I seem to get that, they were teasing me about one of them looking like Hazel - *sigh* not quite - and nothing happened. But how much do you want to bet that Hazel would be the one Filapina that would just look me up and down and say, "ya right it for my cousin" or something

Oh well, as I have said before, one can always dream...and if you don't dream..or have a secret crush or secret pleasure/ are probably a boring person. hahahaha

Ok, this blog is dragging, so I'm going to cut it for tonight.

Hazelspeeps song of the day today is....80's dance/house song - great back beat...the kind of song that gets your hips grinding/moving.

"Illusion" - Imagination

Could it be a fact?
it's just an illusion...
Could it be a fact?
in all this confusion...

*musing* could she be just an illusion?

Goodnight Ms. Hazel Mae, fondest regards and best wishes from north of the border - here's hoping that your Easter weekend is a safe and happy one, and that you were able to sneak home to spend it with family and friends.
