Got Coffee and Went to the Beach

I decided I needed to check out the waves this morning after getting coffee at Donut Hut.? Ok, there was a donut thrown in there somewhere. It’s a great way to start the day. It looks like the weather should be perfect again for tomorrow’s Rose Parade and football game. I can’t really say I’m too fired up for the Oregon Ducks versus the Ohio State Buckeyes. That reminds me, I can never remember what a Buckeye is, besides the Ohio State nickname.

According to a Wiki on the internet a Buckeye is an, “Inedible nut-like seed of the horse chestnut tree.” I am going with the Ducks to beat the nut-like seeds. I really don’t know the teams that well, so it’s the best I can do when it comes to predictions. Seems like you should name your school after an edible nut something you can sink your teeth into like almonds or pecans. You can tell I’m not from Ohio.

I’ll be bringing in the new year on my drive home from work tonight so I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and all the best for 2010.. -RL
