The year of the....

Eleven (as in 2011) is a bit of a problem for me. You see, the only words that really rhyme with it are heaven, leaven, and (this could be positive) Evan.

Hold tight. You'll see why. First, a skip down memory lane.

Ever enticed by fresh opportunities of a new year, I set goals, create lists, and establish plans. I've been doing this my entire adult life, but in 2008 with the presidential campaign in full swing, I realized I needed focus, determination, and a killer jingle to accomplish my mission.
Date in '08
He's mine '09
Unfortunately, this turned into a three-part strategic plan: 
Try again in 2010

Now that it is 2011 and no man is knocking on my door, i'm left with Focus on heaven in 2011, or No bread with leaven in 2011 (never gonna happen), or potentially Meet Evan in 2011.

Whatever part four ends up being, I sense a strong religious theme. Heaven (obviously religious). Leaven (hello Passover). Evan (it's a stretch but Evan Almighty).  

We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.  Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)

There is always Kevin which could be more common than Evan.

Better than "get a felon" or
or perhaps "suppression in 2011"
Hmmm...this IS a fun game.

Or, if you mangle the pronunciation a bit, Stefan. (Which is not as common as Kevin, but sounds way cooler)

I seriously lol'd reading this. :)

I know two Stefan's! (both married).

I strongly dislike the name Kevin (you can thank the creators of "The Office) for that).

A felon might spice my life up a bit.....and I did read that book last year on life in federal prison, so at least we would have some talking points.

Always love reading your posts. I think you should write a book someday... seriously. Don't forget: you might meet someone from, oh, let's say, Russia who could be named Nevin. :D
