Apparently just approaching 40 has made me more forgetful and disorganized than I already was. I see it’s been about two weeks since my last post-sorry!
June 30, 2012. It seemed like such a long time away. Like a dot on the distant horizon. Like a giant bowl of pasta that looked like it would never be empty (I had to try and work that in ). Then…BOOM! I’m mopping up sauce at the bottom of that proverbial bowl of perfectly cooked Valentino Pasta. Forty. Years. Old.
It was slightly depressing, but eventually ended. Kinda like Weekend At Bernie’s 2 ,or a Justin Bieber song. I got some great gifts and cards, and a whole lotta love on the Valentino Pasta facebook page. It was humbling to have so many people I’ve met since this adventure began give so many well wishes. But I didn’t get what I really wanted. That would be a Vespa GTV 300. You see, I need this as part of this whole Italian lifestyle thing we’re working on here. The problem is… Marie didn’t agree that it was a wise business expense at this early stage of the company. So, I’m turning to the amazing power of the extended Valentino Pasta family and the internet as a whole. To help make this happen you can- 1. send money directly to me or 2. buy a whole helluva lot of pasta. Thank you in advance!
Seriously though, I am super excited about what is going on here. We continue to get rave reviews about the pasta and have lots of repeat customers. There is a new online store. We are also donating one meal to a hungry child in America for every pound of pasta we sell. If you didn’t hear it’s called ‘Eat pasta. Help a kid.’ and I am thrilled about how many kids we will help with it. As you can see things are moving at a rapid pace! Any way you participate in what we are doing is more than you have to, so thank you so much. Now, about that Vespa…
