I didn’t quit Diet Coke… Diet Coke quit me….

May 20, 2009

I have been drinking Diet Coke since about 1984 religiously.  Really I have been drinking Diet Coke most of my life and now at 35 I have made my 100th attempt to quit. This time I will do it, I hope. dc

I miss the crisp refreshing crack of the hard cold wet aluminum. I miss the feeling of the tiny bubbles tickling my upper lip as I breath in and took that first big sip. The thought of the habitual comfort I got from walking into work and starting my shift with a small bottle of DC, it almost makes me weep. It is a sad day and it is starting to piss me off, why, oh why must I quit my DC……. What will I drink now what is satisfy that thirst? Let’s be honest, nothing I do will give me that satisfaction. It is done for the world will never be the same… But on a side note, maybe I’ll get past it, maybe there will be a time when it means nothing to me.  Nahh, I will miss it and I will get over it but I will never forget it…..

Here is where I leave you, my sweet Diet Coke I will remember every time I here this song….



China Creek Skate Park….

The skate park that won’t quit.

china creek China Creek is the oldest skate park in Vancouver and one of my fav’s.  It smells like piss, shit and barf and often there is a bum sleeping on the benches. In the morning there is rarely  anyone around and you can spend a few hours alone skating the cracked and beaten concrete. An eye sore that was once in jeopardy of being ripped down.  It now boast a sort of historical statues and is the first retried skate park in Vancouver,  due largely in part to the hard working people of the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition.( good job boys and girls).

Memories of a time before cell phones and other distractions, skating the park in the early morning gives me a sense of calm in this ever growing violent skate community.

The Jaks still hold there annual skateboard comp at China Creek in Sept and it is always fun watching the oldies drink too much, skate and talk about old times.
