I was attempting to find a book by Knox Mcoy. All I could vaguely remember about the title is that it was about how not to make your marriage suck. I thought the search terms I used would take me to that book. I was wrong.
Many of you probably grew up under circumstances. If you were a good Christian child of the 80's/90's, you did everything possible to avoid seeing what was aired on MTV. If you caught too much of a glimpse of that cable network, you'd burn in hell. I was spared from hearing U2's devilish music. There were bands like Jars of Clay and Delirious?, and... (I guess the list ends there) putting out great artistic music, but for the most part, I had to go to school being "proud" of listening to music of the likeness of the gems below.
Cessna 208 A Caravan 675
First on my list is an airplane! I don't have a pilot's license yet, but I have taken the controls of a plane while in air before. If you were to buy me this for Christmas, I would take you and some friends up in the sky for sure. You'd just have to hope I had the intuition require to safely land this beast on to the ground (I've flown, but I have never landed). Oh, the places you'll go... with me.
Mini Cooper 1300
No, I don't want want one of those sissy Minis that Marky Mark sported duing the movie, The Italian Job. I'm talkin' about one of those sissy Minis the Brits drove during the 1960s. If yo could find one with the steering wheel on the right side of the vehicle, which would be the left side, that would be a big plus.
The Plaza Hotel
They say money can't buy history, but I disagree. Actually, I've never heard "they" say that, and I don't know if this joint is up for sale. Speaking of joints, this is the location where Bob Dylan introduced The Beatles to marijuana. It's also the locale where Kevin McCallister maxed out his parents' credit carts. A 75% stake of of this property was purchased for $570 million, so you should be able to purchase this easily for under a billion quid (Yes, I learned how to talk British while driving the Cooper). It's my dream to own and manage a hotel, and I might as well start with the best.
The cash Apple Inc. has on hand now surpasses the cash the federal government has on hand. So I ask myself, what would be different about this country if Steve Jobs was President?
Things You Shouldn't Doodle On:

I won't go as far to say that I'm a reality TV junkie. I do follow Amazing Race, Survivor, Big Brother, American Idol, America's Got Talent, and that other show too embarrassing for a male to mention. I'd love to be on a reality show, but my own quirks would prevent me to succeeding on any of the ones I mentioned. I've come up with a few reality shows of my own that I could find success in.
Survivor San Diego: I'd rough it out on a beach in San Diego. Luckily for me, there would be showers on the beach. I could only eat food found on the beach or purchased from a boardwalk restaurant. Hopefully, I would be able to survive in the very harsh San Diego weather.
The Solo Travel: It's a show about the art of traveling alone. It's a Samantha Brown type show. If you don't know who she is, you should watch The Travel Channel more often.
The Biggest Gainer: Instead of losing weight, the purpose of this show would be to gain weight. A bunch of stick boys like me and stick girls would be the contestants. We'd fight to overcome our high metabolism systems. The first one to their ideal weight wins.
The Single Guy: It's a show that just follows the habitual single guy. He's single, and he's always been single. Hopefully this show would soon be cancelled, because the single guy became un-single.
OCD Rehab: This show starts off on the wrong foot. There's 9 inhabitants in the house instead of the idealistic 10. They take away all of our contraband (Wet Ones and Shout Wipes). They make us walk on a dirt surface while wearing white shoes. We're limited to only one shower a day. It's complete torture.
