Awaken Your Afternoon

Coca-Cola Blak
Coca-Cola (2006)
If you haven't had the chance to try Coke Blak yet, I highly recommend it.  It's a hybrid of cola and coffee that is very flavorful, but not overly sweet.  It launched in the United States earlier this year and, according to this flyer, is being launched in Canada today.

Grandma's Flowers

Fairlane Village Mall - Pottsville, PA
After the school year has ended, my dad likes to take my grandmother out shopping and to lunch during the week.  This summer, they've been going on Wednesdays, and I've been going with them a lot more often since my previous relationship ended.  I know it probably sounds lame, but I enjoy spending time with them.  I don't know where I'd be without my dad and my grandparents.

Earlier today, we went to the Fairlane Village Mall in Pottsville, and we stopped at Lowe's.

Stick Figure Ninjas

The Xiao Xiao stick figure ninjas have been online for as long as I can remember, but it never gets old.  Episode 3 is my favorite.

Hypercolor Shark

I found this little shark at my desk.  Not sure where I got it, but I love things like this.  It reacts to heat and changes color when you touch it.

Guardian Of The Snack Cakes

If you told me when I was a kid that my grandmother would one day allow a cat to lay on her kitchen table, I would have said you're crazy, but here he sits with his supper dish right next to the Maple Creme Pies.

The Fight Of The Century

ROH: Fight Of The Century
Inman Sports Club - Edison, NJ
Ring Of Honor is to technical wrestling what ECW was to hardcore wrestling.  They have become known for popularizing five-star matches in the United States.  Matches such as this have been popular in Japan and among tape traders here for many years, but they only occasionally appeared in mainstream American wrestling, such as the Wrestlemania 3 classic between "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat.

I've been attending ROH shows in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania for the past ten months, and I've had more fun at these shows than I've ever had in a lifetime of watching professional wrestling.  There were a lot of great matches on these shows.  However, I don't think I've ever watched a single match, live or on television, that tops the main event of last night's show in which Samoa Joe challenged "The American Dragon" Bryan Danielson for the ROH World Championship.  The match went to a 60 minute time limit draw, and it truly lived up to the hype of being the Fight Of The Century.


After the show, I bumped into Jack Evans at the little mini arcade that's outside of the hockey rink area at the Inman Sports Club.  Unfortunately, I didn't have change or else I would have challenged him to a game of Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000, but he was very awesome and took a photo with me.

A Healthy Irish Stout

Could you imagine the fit that people would throw in the US if they promoted Guinness with these signs over here?

Signs Of Ireland

They must have an epidemic of folks falling off of the edge of things around here.
