The premise behind this link-up is: "If we were having coffee together, I would tell you..."
Side note: I don't actually drink coffee! Usually water is my beverage of choice, but I wasn't sure about using "Ultimate Water Date" as a blog headline. So we'll just stick with "coffee date" on a colloquial basis.
If we were having [insert beverage of choice here] together, I would tell you:
Tomorrow Adam and I are taking a pasta making class. The students get to dine on their own creations at the end (always my favorite part). I will put forth a valiant attempt to not go overboard and stuff myself into oblivion. It's too bad that Rock N Roll DC is next Saturday instead of this Sunday, otherwise it would have been a perfect way to carb-load.
This Sunday, my friend Katie and I are going to see the Blackhawks play the Rangers at the UC. I could easily write a full separate post (or even a full separate blog) about the Hawks. But in short, I can't wait to see some of the new lineup additions in action. I'm looking forward to the team's momentum swinging heavily in the right direction starting RIGHT NOW (that was an Edzo reference, for all of you diehards). Also, in honor of St. Patrick's Day this month, Katie is going to be wearing her new green Oduya jersey. Rock on!

I don't think it's a coincidence that the picture includes both Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane!
Would you believe that Adam has never seen The Sound of Music? I've been meaning to remedy that for quite some time. When the Oscars were on a few weeks ago, we happened to flip over just in time to see Lady Gaga's amazing tribute. That was the kick in the tush that I needed to spurn myself into action. Thanks to the magic of the Chicago Public Library, I currently have a copy of the movie on hold to be checked out!
On the race front, I am thinking more and more strongly about officially signing up for the Rock N Roll races in Vancouver and Las Vegas. I am really craving a visit to Vancouver and the chance to run along the Pacific Ocean and the mountains. Other than some business trips about ten years ago, I haven't been there since I was a young teenager. Additionally, Rock N Roll Montreal still remains high on the list. It would be nice to take advantage of visiting Canada while the foreign exchange rate is the most favorable it's been in about 10 years. O Canada...

I'm currently experimenting with tweaking my blogging philosophy. In lieu of going long periods of time in blog silence, I am testing out writing shorter but more frequent posts. Blogging is a hobby for me and will always be based on time permitting. However, the shorter posts are less daunting to put together (and I suspect they are easier to read, too). I'm also trying out the strategy of writing up a bunch of posts over the weekend, then scheduling them to publish during the week. We'll see how things go. Any thoughts?
And with that...
Happy Friday, everyone! I'd love to hear your "coffee talk" updates and/or your plans for this weekend!
