Of all the blogs I’ve ever hosted and written, this is one of them. It’s also the least cared for and cultivated, which is a shame, because if I ever want to become an Internet sensation, I’m going to have to do much better than 23 posts in a year.
Luckily, there’s one amazing week every year that gets the blog jump-started, and it’s “I Love Don Week” which is, for the newcomers, the week leading up to my birthday. I’m a little late in getting started in 2012 because I went on vacation, but it doesn’t mean “I Love Don Week” doesn’t still happen even though I’m not blogging about it.
It’s Saturday and officially it’s Day 3 of “I Love Don Week”. So far, so good. Last night my lovely wife boughte $10 worth of scratch-n-wins and I won. Solid. Today, she’s taking the driving duties on our three hour car ride home from vacation so I can, ahem, “write”, and that’s what I’m doing. She thinks I’m writing for my clients. Don’t tell her. Oh, and on Thursday she surprised me by starting our vacation by revealing she brought Shuler’s Bar Cheese on our vacation. Usually she doesn’t buy it for me because I’ll eat the whole thing in one sitting and make myself sick to my stomach. But during “I Love Don Week”, an upset stomach is allowed because of my unopposed gluttony.
One thing troubling me, however, is that my wife is doing the bulk of the heavy lifting, and that’s probably my fault. Usually this blog has a wish-list and others can play along. So without further ado, here’s the “I Love Don Week” wish-list.
o Adidas or New Balance minimalist running shoes
o a burger press for my grill
o grill accessories
o a Weezer vintage graphic tee
o the soccer ball from the Euro cup 2012
o $20 iTunes card
o iPad 3
o quality nose-hair trimmers (a sure sign I’m getting old)
o the men’s line from Arbonne (I’m almost out of everything)
o Fifth of Canadian Club
o 1 lb of Chazzano coffee
o a French Press (hey, I’ve never had one, and I’m a coffee snob, so …I should have one)
That’s all I can think of right now, and I should really get to writing for my writing clients and not waste these 2 1/2 hours of travel time alone with my keyboard.
Happy “I Love Don Week!”
