    Well, I've designated 2008 as the Year of Dave, but unfortunately it may be beginning to fade away. After a few beers with Levi and Nick the goal of the Year of Dave was to do at least one somewhat crazy thing each month. The month of January didn't go too bad as I bought my own pinball machine, which you can see here, and I have gotten plenty of use out of it, but so far the rest of the year has been a bit of a lame duck. The Year of Dave is supposed to be full of fun and excitement, but the major flaw of my plan has been ideas for executing throughout the year. So here's my question to you (all six of you) - if you were single, without any kids and doing alright financially what would you do? This is a totally serious question. I'm sure every one of you has sat around and uttered the phrase "If I wasn't married and didn't have kids I would…" Finish that sentence in the comments below to give me some ideas; otherwise the Year of Dave is definitely going to be an ultimate failure. Even better send all your buddies a link to this post and tell them there's this crazy guy on the Internet who bought his own pinball machine and is looking for other crazy crap to do this year and he needs some more ideas, or post a link to this post on your blog. (It's really easy, you do CTRL+C and then CTRL+V for you lazy readers.) If you have a good idea, I'll buy you a beer. If you have a great idea then you'll start to see some pretty interesting pictures on my blog! If you don't have any ideas then you must be one of those weird people that are actually content with your life. (Which means I don't like you, so stop wasting my bandwidth!)

1. Buy a new Jeep.

3. Document #2 online.

Oh sure steal Gifford's idea now what's he going to post? Oh wait THE GIFFORD is too busy to read my little old blog. I think you're a little vague on item number 2, "Go on road trips". The biggest road trip I've been on lately is the 20 minutes ride to work. Am I suppose to buy a new Jeep just to go visit the biggest ball of twine?

1. Make a million dollars
2. Blow it all in a weekend in Vegas

How about starting an online community of steamy debauchery? Oh wait that has already been done in 2001: http://www.usatoday.com/tech/2001-07-24-jilted-sites.htm

Or you could buy a food cart, roll it downtown on the weekends and sell sausages. Each sausage lovingly hand stuffed and rolled to perfection by Dave's own hands. Chicks dig a guy who knows how to stuff a sausage.

Single with money. I will find a group of buddies and fly out to Las Vegas for a good time seeing the bright lights and throwing back a few beers while tossing a few bucks in a slot machine

Here is a great idea. Get a few of your buddies and go to one of those speed dating events...

Describe yourself as a busy professional who loves to work; but because of your long hours and your career in IT, its difficult to meet women. Your interests are work, travel, spending time with family and reading a good John Grisham novel.

Well the goal of the Year of Dave isn't technically to meet a woman so I'm going to have to pass on the speed dating, but who wants to go to Vegas this weekend?
