My Perfect Day In 2011

Saturday is the first day of the year 2011. Traditionally, people make their New Year’s resolutions around this time. Don’t worry; this blog isn’t about the resolutions that I will be making for the upcoming year. Like most people I would only break them a short time later. Another tradition is to make lists of things that have happened in the past year. Well, I’m not going down that road either. In this blog I intend on starting a New Year tradition that is different and imaginative, one that hasn’t been done before. This blog contains the schedule of my perfect day in the year 2011.

Before I reveal my schedule, I need to explain a couple of things. This is MY perfect day and nobody else’s. Therefore, I am playing by MY rules. You will quickly see that the things that make up this perfect day of mine are idealistic and require a few things to be changed, one being very important.

My perfect day in 2011 would be a Thursday. This has always been my favorite day of the week for a variety of reasons. Most of these reasons are silly and significant only to me. But it’s MY perfect day, so it is Thursday.

My Perfect Day Schedule

6:00 AM – the first thing I would do is watch TMJ4’s Live At Daybreak show. The news anchors would be Susan Kim and Vince Vitrano. The weatherman would be Brian Gotter with Emily Vitrano reporting on the traffic conditions. Scott Steele and Caitlin Morrall would not be present. While watching the news I would be also catching up with the facebook world.

7:00 AM – pray the Rosary with my Dad.

8:00 AM – shower and shave. Then eat breakfast while listening to Lenny Palmer rant and rave on 1050 WLIP.

9:00 AM – watch the Match Game and the original Newlywed Game on the Game Show network. Elaine Joyce would be on Match Game and there would be no Gary Burghoff.

10:00 AM – listen to Jason Wilde and Bill Johnson on Green and Gold Today on While doing this I would actually read some of the magazines that I subscribe to.

11:00 AM – listen to the D-List with Drew Olson and Dan Needles on 540 ESPN and continue reading. By the way, my D-List number would be called.

12 Noon – play games on Pogo while visiting with my friend Bev on Skype.

1:00 PM – while eating lunch, listen to Pat Hegewald’s Fantasy Lunch on Blog Talk Radio.

2:00 PM – more Pogo, visiting and “socializing” on facebook.

3:00 PM – read and make sure Mom wakes up from her nap in time for her to go play bingo.

4:00 PM – watch Judge Judy. I know, I know…

5:00 PM – watch the news on TMJ4 with Melissa McCrady and Diane Pathieu anchoring with Michael Fish doing the weather. After that I would watch Time Warner Cable 32 Roundtable. Dennis Krause’s guests would be Bill Johnson and Steve Haywood.

6:00 PM – enjoy dinner with my Dad. We would dine on pizza from any one of the many fine pizzerias in Kenosha.

7:00 PM – watch Survivor. Yes, it will be back on Thursday. It would also feature Russell Hantz, all of the time.

8:00 PM – write my Survivor blog while listening to The Who on iTunes.

9:00 PM – post my blog and welcome Mom home from bingo. Hopefully she won the big pot. If she doesn’t win, then one of her gang does, Maryann, Joe or one of the Richards.

10:00 PM – tell my Mom and Dad how much I love them and get ready for bed. I would listen to Nick Digilio on 720 WGN as I float off into dreamland…

I know that it doesn’t sound very spectacular, but it’s MY perfect day and if it could happen just once, I would be the happiest man in the world. Until next time…from the booth.
