- There's a man right now who is trying to live for a year solely on coupons, no cash or credit cards.
- There's the man who a while back spent an extremely demanding year "living biblically."
- There's that whole thing that started out as a woman making another delicious French meal in the kitchen and it turned into a "blook" (i.e., a blog morphed into a book) and then a movie that was a hit at the box office.
- And my brother just said, Oh what you're doing is like that woman who gave up sex for a year and I saw her on CNN plugging her new book about it.
Well, yeh, sort of, kind of.
I hate gimmicks and it sounds like a special species of gimmick to claim that Van Winkling myself for exactly a year isn't like what all those others who sought sympathetic audiences, publishing contracts, fame or who knows what particular form of aggrandizement.
You'll have to trust me. I really want to do this. Have a nice long "snooze." For my own sake.
