    Hey, it's after midnight so I guess it's officially my birthday now! Normally I'd be asleep by now but I'm still pumped after an audition for a new band... I was pretty much offered the job on the spot even though they'd planned more auditions. I guess that's a pretty good birthday gift! :D

    It will be tough to leave my old band, assuming I can convince myself to do so. The current gig is great, but I'm the only guy with a day job, so it's always been understood that I'd have to bow out once travel needs demanded it. The new band is a mercenary cover band with an eye towards profit. The other members have day jobs like mine, so long term goals are compatible. It may be the right opportunity at the right time.

    I have to continue to be envious of you TBer's who hold down multiple projects because both of these are "every fri. and sat" gigs, so I can't keep 'em both...

    Shhh... I haven't been 100% officially offered the gig, nor discussed things with my current band.

    But... not a bad B-day for a 37 year old hack!

    send pix, I'll let you know. The wife's been out of town for weeks now on business, but I'm still going to insist at this point on it being a *woman* jumping out of the cake. Next week, who knows? :eek:

    yo, bro!!!!!

    Happy B-Day!!!!!!!!!!

    I would say much more, but i'm on AOL IM with you right now!!!

  18. Yes i can, Gard, 'ol buddy. :D

    But, I must caution you; that coy little smile may reduce you to mush in no time flat. :cool:


    If I were in the same room with her, I think I'd melt.

    Who could resist that smile? :confused:

    Josh, I'm working on one for you too. ;)

  19. This calls for the sealab 2021 birthday rap:

    Go, robot!
    It's your birthday!
    Go, robot!
    It's your birthday!

    You're one year older!
    One year wiser!
    Rock and roll star, king, czar, and a kaiser!
    A roomful of friends!
    A mouthful of cake!
    Every present is for you,
    And it feels pretty great!
    You're the man of the hour,
    The V.I.P.
    You get the first slice,
    Of the P-I-E,
    But first blow out the candles,
    And make a wish,
    Put a smile on,
    'Cause it's your birthday, bitch!
