Gooooood Friday morning everyone! What does everyone have planned for our Canadian Thanksgiving?
I live in a city where Mennonites and Germans have settled years ago, and this weekend is to celebrate part of the German heritage. OKTOBERFEST starts up today! Supposedly there is a parade, but I’ve never heard of it— it’d be interesting to attend it and see all the costumes. I saw one nerdy looking guy at the bus terminal this morning wearing a German styled hat with a feather in it. Kinda cool. There’s also another road race at the end of Oktoberfest which BF & I will compete in. He’ll do the 10k in 37 minutes, while I’ll do the 5k in 29/30 minutes. HA! It should be fairly easy as it starts up at one of the malls and just heads downhill the whole way. I’m sure some of the times will be utterly ridiculous and impossible to beat. But it’s just for fun, and I want to beat my own personal time.
Our balcony looks over this wonderful lush green park and on the other side of the park is the football field. Every few Saturday afternoons we always hear roars, oohs and ahhs from the field. BF & I have never been to a University football game before, so for BFs birthday I bought him tickets, and we’re going to watch a game tomorrow afternoon. Awesome. I’m totally going to wear the colors of the local team. GO HAWKS!
