The Donger Needs Food


Theoretically speaking, if your husband FORGETS YOUR BIRTHDAY after you've practically ALMOST DIED* on the operating table during EMERGENCY SURGERY**, but then he remembers that it's your birthday as soon as he leaves the house, and calls you and says happy birthday... does that count as REMEMBERING your birthday or FORGETTING your birthday?

Also, this photo led me on one of my one click leads to another forays into cyberspace, and I cannot find anything more current than 1991 for the smoking hot actor who played Jake Ryan, except for a "where are they now" reference from 2006 which says: He and his family have been living quietly all these years in northeastern Pennsylvania, where the while teen dream operates a successful business building fine hand-crafted furniture.

*Okay, not really.
**Kind of/sort of

So are you planning a pilgrimage to Wilkes-Barre to meet him and his wife, former model Valerie Robinson?

Your husband surely owes you something as costly as a plane ticket, rental car and hotel stay back east to make up for his epic birthday wishes fail.

Jake!

I'm going to say it counts as remembering.

I always wondered what happened to that guy.

Oh, and by the way, Happy Birthday, Shana!

You've just fueled so many more Jake Ryan fantasies. So he grew up to become reflective and creative, still with the muscles, hand crafting furniture. In the mornings he probably steps onto his porch, watching the sun rise over the mountains, drinking coffee and thinking deep thoughts. Sigh.

Oh and happy birthday again! I'm with Fantastic, either way, your husband owes you.

If he only realized how many of us would BUY his furniture if he just came out of hiding!
