The Quest Begins…

WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE… Life isn’t perfect, but things are going pretty great and then something abruptly happens… and you go from top of the world to feeling like an absolute ZERO.  Tapping my Philly roots, I recalled this…


Feeling like a ZERO, I took control of how I felt* and thought about a zero-shaped object… one that brings me happiness… and that’s how the tagline for this blog took shape.

“DONUT Life Get Ya Down!  Eat DONUTS!”

Astute readers will notice that the tagline begins and ends with donuts… some deep philosophical connection with the Lion King, Circle of Life shit, right?  Steve D., remember my Best Man’s Speech for you?

Oh, I drew the banner by freehand (I’m AZN) so it had to be a Double Dragon with a Questing Donut Samurai (c’mon, was I really gonna pick a Western Monty Python one?)!  The art style was inspired by XKCD and The Oatmeal.

*Note: Nobody can tell you how you should feel because your feelings are your feelings!  Furthermore, Q’s (that’s me) Theory of the Conservation of Thought goes like this…

When a thought is created, it cannot be destroyed.  In your mind, you need to create positive ones to displace the negative ones.

So, in my soul-searching, being lazy, I naturally sought the Interwebs for guidance… As a man, the Interwebs tell me that I should seek an adventure… climb a mountain, wrestle a bear, etc… Considering that I’ve survived death several times in my life (seriously) and, frankly, I’m lucky to be here today, I decided that I did not want to press my luck on these “adventures.”  I mean, I guess it would be kinda cool to pee off of K2 but that’s a lot of work…

The premise of this blog…

  • Travel every few months to a new city and put their finest Donut Shop to the test!
  • Buy a donut for the customer in front or in back of me… Perhaps, they will share an interesting story!
  • Since I am not infinitely rich (donations are always welcome), I’ll try to post monthly content on donut recipes that I will try!  Reader suggestions are always welcome!
  • Visit new places to catch Pokemon.**

**What is PokemonGO?  OK, you’ve probably been living under a rock so you won’t likely think this blog is humorous or punny.  BTW – I’m on Team Yellow and join my Facebook Group… why did I pick Yellow… because ZachZag said so!

Since I used to write Ultimate Frisbee cheers, here goes…

I want to eat the very best,
Like no one ever has.
To taste them is my real test,
To make them is my cause.
I will travel across the land,
Searching far and wide.
Each Donut Shop, to understand
The power that’s inside
Donut Shops
(Gotta Taste ’em all)
Donuts and me
I know it’s my destiny

Donut Shops
Like a best friend
In a world we must defend
Donut Shops
(Gotta taste ’em all)
A mouth so true
My taste buds will pull us through
You feed me and I’ll eat you
Donut Shops
(Gotta taste ’em all)
Gotta taste ’em all
Donut Shops

TARGET: DaVinci Donuts (July 2016)
