I Can Dream, Can't I?

I am obviously obsessing with turning 40 this year. Some of my comrades are probably a bit unnerved by my continual pining over reaching one score years. In total fairness, this is MY blog, so I can pretty much pine all I want! :o)

Actually, I do not intend to lament the first 39 years here tonight. Instead, I am posting my 40th Birthday Wish List, with emphasis being on the word, "Wish."

  1. The complete set of Ally McBeal on DVD. No, I am not joking.
  2. A Packer game at Lambeau Field complete with Beer and Bratwurst.
  3. A weekend getaway with just me and Tracy.
  4. An alternative wish to #3: a weekend with no kids, pets, or in-laws.
  5. A sky jump. I can already feel the adrenaline!
  6. The financial ability to afford instruction in the art of Jeet Kune Do.
  7. A new tattoo. Either that, or an upgrade to the old tattoo. It looks like it was drawn with a marker.
  8. An evening with James, Jazz, and/or an evening in which I am allowed to be totally sophomoric with James and Jazz.
  9. Tickets to Manilow in Vegas. Maybe throw in a couple grand for the Baccarat table.
  10. A reunion tour of Van Halen with David Lee Roth back at the microphone.
  11. Last but not least, a ride in a Dodge Viper (provided I can fit inside of one!).
  12. In the event that #11 is a "no go" a ride in Rick's mini will do.
  13. Cruise for brunch with Chuck in a 1980 Chevelle/Chevette (sorry for the oversight, Amigo).

Wow, that was fun! Now back to reality. Even though dreams help us keep plugging away.

Number 11 has already come true (http://www.van-halen.com), unless you're a stickler for having Michael Anthony on bass. However, getting tickets to said concert is a whole other wish to add to your list.

Ahhh...life just got a whole lot better! One wish down, 11 more to go!

Crap! I didn't make the cut. Just consider "Cruising for Brunch with Todd" crossed of my list buddy!

But, seriously, to give you some encouragement, Colonel Sanders started frying chicken at 40 and opened KFC at 60.

Imagine what I could do with a pizza joint...
