I just love the month of August. August is filled with so many holidays it’s hard for me to pick my favorite one. Let’s do a little run down of August holidays shall we.

August 12th. SHARK WEEK!
We have a winner ladies and gentlemen! Fuck the rest of August. Once Shark week begins, I am so very happy, and my shark phobia husband is in living hell. For those of you who know me personally, read my blog even though I haven’t been writing much, something I plan to change, or are maybe new to my blog, know that my husband “Poptart” and I have a pretty fantastic relationship. I live to torture him, and somehow he has the never-ending patience to put up with me torturing him. So enter shark week. There are only two things in this world that my husband really hates. One is clowns, two is sharks, three are cranberry sauce, and four are sweet potatoes. Okay, four, there are four things my husband can’t stand. But since I have a wonderful friend who has an almost (seriously needs to talk to a therapist) love of sharks. I have been drawn into her titillating (Yea, I said it) world of sharks and I couldn’t help but share my excitement. But who would be interested in Shark Week. My kid? Naaaaaa. My dogs? No. My husband? BINGO! And that my friends is how the tradition of shark week in my house began. For instead of actually watching Shark week on Discovery Channel, I like to bring Shark Week to life by hiding little shark presents for my husband to find. And while he is clearly exasperated at my antics, and completely dreading shark week, I am currently getting boxes from Amazon filled with shark goodies just for such an occasion.
But before we begin Shark Week 2012. I think it would be nice to revisit Shark week 2011.

Sixth Day of Shark Week 2011
Is that a shark on your pocket or are you happy to see me shark.
Seventh Day of Shark week 2011
Steering wheel shark.
I wasn’t able to capture the elusive steering wheel shark on film, because at this point Poptart was hot on my tail and shark attacks were getting increasingly difficult.
So now that we all know what’s in store for us this week. I’m looking at you Poptart, I am patiently counting down the days until the sharks first strike. And I am LOVING this. Da na Da na Da na da da da da da da da da da da da da da da……………
