Awesome Things About David

Today is David's birthday. Now, as many of you know, I mention him quite a bit in this blog--probably more than he would prefer. So in honor of this day I'm going to mention only awesome things about him, since in my quest to be endlessly hilarious I may have missed some of those. (And I will miss a bunch more. Believe me.)

1. He has a great sense of humor, and never gets at all peeved when I ever-so-gently poke fun at him in this blog. Even if I'm telling everyone that he wears strangers' pants.

2. He gives me foot rubs while we watch TV. Every. Night.

3. He's so brilliant that when I complained that I didn't like the location of the shift key on my new netbook, he moved the shift key. Then reprogrammed the netbook to recognize the new location.

4. When he's being interviewed for techie-related broadcasts (more often than you'd think) he waves his arms around with great excitement, conveying not only enthusiasm but an irresistible, irrepressible charm.

5. If you cook him something he really loves, like lamb, or potatoes, or apple pie, he will actually close his eyes while he's eating it.

6. He took care of a 13-month-old baby he'd never met before virtually unassisted for weeks, since the baby in question would not let me near her. And he didn't sleep at all. And he never complained.

7. He's tuned in to the needs of all animals. Even roaches.

8. If I'm in a show that runs nine performances, he's there for at least four.

9. We're the yin and yang of filmmaking--He: camera/editing/tech. Me: writing/acting/micro-managing. Both: loving every minute of it.

10. He wanted to date me even after I forced him to dance with me the night we met at my sister's wedding. The man does not dance. Even in his dreams he does not dance. Then he agreed to dance lessons before our wedding. For five months. And our first dance was a samba.

Also? He made the CUTEST face when I (a stranger to him!) saw him in a restaurant and approached him saying, "You're David, right? I recognize you from your wife's blog." True story!

Happy birthday to David!

I laughed at number three -- that you'd hate it and he'd patiently fix it -- and then I realized I don't like the shift key on my netbook, either!

My word verification code is "eetle" -- I like that.

Aw, what a sweet post. You two are so adorable together that I can hardly believe you are real. :-)

Happy birthday, David! (I am very impressed by the shift key but even more by the foot rub.)

Awww...this reminds me of our dinner conversation last night!

He is such a special person.

Happy Birthday, David!

And he has such kind eyes.

I loved this, Sam. And foot rubs every night? Max loved to give me massages while we were dating. Now, quite often, he announces he was just wooing me. The turd head.

Happy Birthday, David.
