Dave is the man
I was transfixed to news coverage of the I-35W bridge collapse last night. The choppers were making for some incredible TV. The cameras they use nowadays can zoom in so tight that you can actually recognize people.
And there he was, Dave. He was on a shattered section of the bridge, pulling women, men and children out of the mississippi and handing them to emergency personnel. It was amazing. The TV news commentator made mention of Dave's incredible heroism.
I was proud to know him.
I don't know how many people Dave saved yesterday, but I saw him pull out at least a dozen.

Dave the Rock Star
So I broke down and bought a PS2 and Guitar Hero II. I invited some close friends over to try it out. So there we were, all putzing along, missing half the notes but still having fun. Then it was The Dave's turn. He didn't even watch the screen, just played by ear and somehow knew which notes to hit. It was unreal. Then he asked if he could turn it up a notch. I thought he was talking about the volume, until he asked how the structural integrity of the floor was. Still playing like a madman, he incorporated totally rockstarish jumps into his perfect performance, and once even did a backflip. After he left, my brother tried some of the same moves and almost tore his sack trying to do the splits. It just goes to show, no one rocks like Dave!! NO ONE!!! Current Mood: ecstatic

A Day with Dave is Like...
A day with Dave is like a day at the park, lying in the sun, hearing the birds chirping, reading the latest edition of City Pages and planning out what bands to go see once the sun is set.
A day with Dave is like taking a monster bubble bath in a huge tub and watching the bubbles flow over the edge, drawing dangerously close to the carpeting and not even caring, because the joy of frolicking in the bubbles is just so intoxicating, you are bubble drunk. A day with Dave is like having no where in particular to go, browsing through a gift shop, making fun of everything cheesy and appreciating every clever item, knowing that you can do this all day if you want...but also knowing that you don't want to.
A day with Dave is a day I love having. Current Mood: happy

I'm thankful for Dave
I think that while we are all dining with our families on this Thanksgiving day, we should all take the time to be thankful for Dave. Be thankful for the way he cares about all of us and be thankful for the way he is always willing to lend a helping hand to a friend in need. Yes, you can guarantee that on this Thanksgiving day, I am very thankful for Dave.
On that note, did you know that Dave doesn't really like turkey all that much? I wonder what Dave is having for Thanksgiving dinner today. No doubt, he will be having pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream, because that's his favorite. Maybe that is all he will be having. He can do that, because he's Dave. Current Mood: Thankful

Many Journeys, Many Thoughts of Dave
Hello fellow Dave lovers,
I have not dropped off the face of the planet, I've merely been traveling it. I've been to Iceland, France and all over the US in the past weeks. I'm sure it comes as no surprise, that Dave is loved in all of these places. In fact Atlanta, GA has Dave FM!
The whole time I was away from home, I never felt alone because I saw reflections of Davitude constantly. From the Icelanders covering their car with flowers for no apparent reason to the old lady in Phoenix ordering her In N Out burger animal style - Dave was everywhere.
This all being said, it's good to be back. And I do love you all, but not as much as Dave. I can pretty much say I love Dave 2/3 more than anyone else. More than my grandma, more than my cat and even more than Santa!

I was in Duluth MN last week. I saw Dave in a Starbucks. A fucking STARBUCKS!! There was a Dunn Brothers a mile down the road. That is where I was headed. Dunn Bros. I can only hope Dave was getting something for someone else, someone he only liked a little.
At least it wasn't a Caribou, I would have to leave this community if I ever thought Dave would stoop so low as to drink Caribou coffee.
Dave is like a roofie...
Top Ten Ways in Which an Encounter with Dave is Like Being Slipped a Roofie:
10. You wake up in a daze on your livingroom floor and there's a strange card in your pocket with a picture of Magnum PI.
9. You now understand why Taco Bell tacos can't even pass for "gringo" tacos.
8. You can't remember anything after hearing, "Good morning, How're you today?"
7. You NEED to try bacon beer, NOW.
6. You suddenly feel disoriented and confused, even dizzied by the sound of a mariachi band.
5. You decide to take off all your clothes for no apparent reason.
4. You spontaneously yell “Freebird” at every musician you see.
3. You develop a compulsion to buy everyone a drink.
2. You can’t stop smiling, even though your dog just died.
And the number one way in which an encounter with Dave is like being slipped a roofie:
1. You suddenly decide to give up your dream of being a stockbroker in favor of living on a commune and learning to weld. Current Mood: amused

notadave SIGHTING...Halloween style!
It was Halloween day and I was sitting at my desk, NOT dressed up as I would usually be on Halloween, because I work at a stuffy, no fun office, when the phone rang. I answered as usual. It was the front desk. They said I had a visitor. Having the advantage of working in the loft area of my office, I quietly crept to the overlook to spy on who might be visiting me. I did not recognize the individual and was perplexed, curious and excited, all at once. Who could this stranger be coming to visit me on Halloween? I cautiously descended the staircase, trying to figure who would come asking for me by name. As I came up behind this visitor, he turned around and who was this before me? Why, it was notadave! In the flesh. I laughed for what seemed an eternity, because when I get giddy, I really just fall into a stupor of laughter. He presented me with his card, as my mouth ramained agape. Yes, it was a first-edition notadave membership card.
My knees got weak and I started to sweat. Why would notadave, the man himself, come to see me in person? He had heard I was his biggest fan! A Dave-portunity I shall never forget! Current Mood: giddy

So excited I peed a little
So I ran into Dave this morning. Well, I didn't ACTUALLY run into him, his amazing reflexes and quick thinking would never allow such a travesty to happen. So I was like, Oh my god, Dave, how are you? What wonderful things have you done for the community? What's your birthstone?
Do you know what he said? "I know people talk about me all the time, but most of the time I just want to know what other normal people are doing, what is going on in their lives. What have YOU been up to, Jesse?"
Naturally, I was floored. Not only is the Dave modest as all hell, but he wanted to know what a mook like me did over the weekend. So that's the point where I peed just a little. Not enough to go home and change, more like a little squirt. Luckily I hadn't had any tea yet, or I'd have been doomed.
I wasn't even embarrassed, just thrilled. Okay, a little embarrassed, but Dave said he wouldn't tell anyone if I didn't.
I love chili, I wonder if the Dave does, too? Current Mood: bouncy

More about Dave's Awesomeness
Dave can light up a room with his smile. Seriously, whenever Dave smiles, I almost want to cry because it's so beautiful....you automatically just start smiling when you see Dave smile....it's something about the way his cheeks get sort of rosey, and his eyes squint just a bit. Dave has the best smile in the Universe. I long for it every moment. (sigh)

He's so dreamy!
I remember playing on the same softball team as The Dave. It was such an experience, and his positive attitude made us all feel like winners. We even went so far as to try to name the team the Rockstars in his honor, but like the giving, loving soul that he is, Dave would hear none of that. We were a team, even if we were all there mostly to Oooh and Aaah over his every stunning play at first, second, third, home, or the outfield.
It's possible I'm a little gay for The Dave. After all, if you can't be him (and really, who could?), you can at least love him for all his splendor. Thanks, Dave, for letting me know just how good of a person I can be if I act just as you do! Current Mood: content

Dave is such a cool Kat
Around 1:15 today, Dave walked in. The atmosphere changed. Everything was in slow motion. I watched him as he walked with his confident, cool strut. He wore dark sunglasses and a bright red shirt. He was almost appeared to be Hollywood - like. I forgot to breath for a few moments. It was awesome. Did I mention Dave looks GREAT in red?!!

Try the Korean BBQ. But bring your own fork, because if you ask for one (even if it is just for eating your rice, because white folks can't eat rice with chopsticks), they will laugh at you. Current Mood: Dave-a-licious

My First Time, or how I lost my Davirginity
You may have noticed that another Dave fan, seauxii
has joined us. She (I think, but only because I read the name as "suzie". I could be wrong. Please don't take offense if I am.) asked what was so great about Dave, and as I responded, I started thinking about the first time I met Dave.
It was January 4, 2005. I was 9 months pregnant. Dave, benevolent, caring man that he is, accompanied eveodestruction
to my place of work to deliver my rather late birthday present (including the fabulous "Nope. Just fat." t-shirt). It was a short visit, but wonderful nonetheless. I basked in the Dave afterglow, and even forgot about the foot wedged under my ribs.
24 hours later, I started having contractions and by the evening of the 5th, I was definitely in labor. Leif was born the next morning.
I didn't realize it then, but I believe now that Dave was directly responsible for me having the baby when I did. He might have stayed in there forever, had I not seen Dave that day. Obviously, Leif sensed Dave's presence and decided the world was OK after all.
So, hey Dave, if you ever read this -- thanks! I couldn't have done it without you. Current Mood: Davish
you all have intrigued me....
So here i am sitting at work, while everyone else is at lunch, clicking the random search for journals, and i come across here!
I dont know who this Dave
is, but he must be interesting from all that i read, so tell me about him! i am suprised there are no candid camera shots from your sightings of this Dave you speak of.
intrigued and curious,
Seauxii Current Mood: geeky

I've been thinking about Dave a lot lately. I think it is because of his Latin essence... Current Mood: restless

A Little Nookie?
You'll never believe this, but I saw Dave at the Nook tonight. Of course, he had a burger, because you just cannot go to the Nook without having a burger. I mean, why else would you go there? He was there with this really hot girl, so of course, I was jealous. But you know, shold I really expect anything less from Dave? I also found out that he is not a fan of mayo, because he ordered the burger without chipotle mayo (I gave the waitress $5 to tell me what he ordered!) Yes, a Lodge burger without chipotle mayo. hmmm, I wonder if he orders that particular burger because he likes the burger or if he just can't do without the lettuce and tomato? I can only wonder. I certainly didn't get too close to the table since he was with such a gorgeous girl! What else would one expect of Dave? Current Mood: cheerful
