Donut Celebrities

Friends,

Matching actor names to faces is a hit-and-miss exercise. Name a celebrity and my eyes may gloss over. Mention roles they’ve played and the odds of recognition improve —of course a picture is worth a thousand roles (thank you Google!). Speaking of which, did you know you can get a celebrity to record a personalized video message at Cameo.com? Want a pep talk from Brent Spiner (Data from Star Trek)? $299. How about a threatening birthday message from Danny Trejo (Machete)? $140. You may not be able to get Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), but Lucius Malfoy (Tom Felton) and Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane) are $599 and $250 respectively. So, the next time you’re at a loss as to what to give that special person who has everything, why not have Newman from Sinefeld (Wayne Knight) creep them out? It’s probably worth the $330 price. And, if that’s too rich for your blood, Dunkin’ Ducks is only $15. Better yet, a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts is always a welcome treat.
Happy Friday!

BIrds of a Feather

Friends, The early bird catches the worm, however, as the sun rises I’d much rather have a Denver omelet than a diet of worms . Ready to fly the coop, my ducks all in a row, I ponder one more time whether a bird in hand is truly worth two in the bush. Egged-on by my quest to tuck away a nest egg, I’ve decided to change industries and hope that, like the phoenix, my career will also rise from the ashes of change. After all, I’m no spring chicken –my crow’s feet and gray bely my age – however, I have to trust my judgment and believe you can’t catch this old bird with chaff (whether or not folks think me an odd bird for my actions). And so I shall attempt to soar like an eagle, aware that counting my chickens before they hatch would be ill-advised. As I learn to talk turkey in the language of cybersecurity, I will endeavor not to hide my head in the sand, choosing instead to be like a duck – calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath! And while my excessive use of bird-inspired

Love and Marriage go together like a Horse and... Donut!

Friends, My family gained a new daughter last week. As I welcome the freshly minted Mrs. González, I wish the new couple a lasting, loving, happy and tranquil marriage. I am also reminded of a special delivery I received at the wedding. A few weeks ago, my niece/goddaughter held a “go fund me” and offered to stitch something for the donors. I, of corse, asked for a horse jumping through a donut. The completed masterpiece depicting this unlikely combo now has a special place in my office, and brings a smile to my face every time I see it. That said, I may forgo the obligatory donut today and opt for some of the leftover cake we still have at the house. Happy Friday!   New addition to the Family Horse through donut  with the artist   Horse through donut at it’s new home shelf P.S. The donut wall in action.

Life is Smiling!

Friends, You know life is good when even dinner smiles at you. That said, digging into smiley soup can pose a dilemma. At a conscious level, you know it’s just inert food. Inanimate, unsentient, incapable of emotion or feeling. Still, those cute cross eyed egg eyes and that little pepper smile are saying ”I’m your friend” —and friends don’t eat friends. Naming your anthropomorphic dish only makes matters worse. Eventually, being the monster I am, hunger wins. Mmmm, delicious! (Sorry, Sally). Speaking of which, maybe skip the smiley faces on that next dozen donuts. Happy Friday! ;-)
