I wrote a little about Mark during the 52 Donuts journey. I’m so happy that he and his family are joining us for the 52 Foods on a Stick adventure. And now, a little input from Mark, one of the first two friends to agree that this project could be conquered.
All About ME!!!
I somehow missed the request (demand, really) from our lovely and talented blog mistress for some personal info. Where to start?…
should I talk about having been born and raised in Springfield, MO?…. my wife and partner since 1984, Susan? She does like food on a stick. Especially cheese. In fact, she likes anything cheesy – must be why she’s with me, huh?
Oh, I could tell you about my son since 1989, Zaq. No, he wasn’t someone else’s son prior to then, he just happened to have been born in 1989. He likes food on a stick, on a plate, in a bowl, wrapped in a paper towel or served on the back of a small woodland creature.
Speaking of Zaq, he and I really enjoyed Deep Fried – which, by the way, is the BEST way to keep something on a stick! – anyway, we both liked the Deep Fried Mashed Potatoes on a Stick at the OK State Fair last fall. Hmmm…. I guess since this blog has just started I’ll have to sample them again for the review to count, huh? If I must…
What? Oh, right.. about me. I’ve got a press release around here somewhere… here it is:
Mark Sparks – Definition: Comic, Magician, Juggler, Puppeteer, Fire Eater turned Booking Agent, Event Producer and part-time Fitness Instructor. He travels nationwide each year producing events and visiting clients, and avoiding people doing card tricks, during which time he has to eat several times a day. Since many of the events have food on sticks, he’s a natural contributor to the cause. He’s also planning on carrying a supply of empty sticks in case he finds himself at an event that is stickless. Mark lives with his wife and son outside of Humansville, MO. Yes, it’s in the sticks.
