Zero is good!

I'm not referring to a test mark here, but I'm thinking of the new Coke Zero which I tasted last night.

I have always been a fan of Coke (as opposed to Pepsi).

A long time ago, when it became apparent I had somewhat of an addiction to the black stuff (well, I was drinking about 2L of it every day or so) I decided to switch to Diet Coke to avoid the empty calories. The phenylalanine (contained in the aspartame) obviously does not scare me...

Diet Coke is something you get used to, but I can't imagine anyone REALLY liking it for the taste. Quebec has the sweetest Classic Coke in North America - with this in mind, it's a wonder some people even made the switch in the first place...

But Coke has come out with a new Coke - Coke Zero - one that has no carbs, no calories, no nothing but the sweet taste of regular Coke (unless you count a couple more chemical substitutes to trick our taste buds).

And so now I look forward to stocking up on this new Coke - until of course the new Diet Coke sweetened with Splenda comes out - I'll have to get a taste of that too...

Having kids now means I only have soft drinks occasionnally (giving the good example and all...).

After grading good and bad tests all day, it is a refreshing (and opposing) thought to see Zero is a good thing.

I'll have to try the zero. Right now I'm hooked on the diet with lime.

Could they make this word verification thing any harder? I have trouble copying more than four letters correctly.

University, married life, a mortgage, kids, keeping my sanity while we cruise through life at 100 MPH... why not try my hand at teaching for a year. After all, a school year is only 180 days - anyone should be able to survive 180 days, right? Well, I'm about to find out - follow my journey and enjoy my trials and tribulations as I embark in this 180 day rollercoaster ride of teenage hormones and drama, spiked with discipline, homework, exams and surprises I'm sure...
