Thank you for the bestest birthday evah…

So basically my birthday festivities started off last night when I arrived at my place to find it all decorated with balloons and streamers.   What an awesome surprise that was.   Then we had a great day today, where I spent the morning with my kids, and then the evening with Jell attending a free outdoor Jazz concert, known locally as Jazz in the Woods.   The first woman was sort of okay…  lol.   She just butchered a rendition of Killing Me Softly by the Fugees, that just about made me wanna call Lauryn Hill up and be like, can’t you sue somebody over that?   I mean vocal gymnastics are cool and all, but she did it up pretty awesome the first time around… ya know!

Luckily, she was just the opening act and things just got better and better as the evening progressed.   The second guy was Grady Nichols, and man could he play the sax!   Awesome!   I really loved a couple of his songs, especially one he called “Bad Attitude.”   He lost a little coolness factor when he said he was inspired to play Jazz by the Weather Channel when he was growing up, but he made up for it with an awesome sax!

The headliner, was a group called Average White Band.  Of course the first thing you notice is that one of the band members is black, and it kinda makes you wonder how he felt joining up with this band.   Hey man, we got a great gig for you where they are needing a kick ass bass player… and you are just the man for it!   He is like, sweet what a great gig.  Then signs the contract and shows up to his first show, to learn the name of the band is Average White Band, and is like ahhh shit!   lol.   I don’t know the story, but again, they were great and very fun to listen to.

One thing I have figured out though, is that somehow attending a live event with Jell is exactly the same in RL as it is in SL.   We like to people watch…  we like to joke around…  we like to talk dirty…  

Just a couple of general observations:

1)  Gender neutral people (ie women who look like men who look like women) really enjoy events which utilize the johnny on the spot bathroom system, cuz they don’t have to get called out by picking one line to stand in by gender.

2)  When you get older sometimes it is hard to determine if a mosquito is hanging off your ear lobe or if it is a tuft of hair.

3) Old people cuddling/being affectionate is very cute.   Old people tonguing each other right in front of where you are sitting, is kind of enough to turn your stomach.   I still hope I am one of the old people who is tonguing Jell, and making other people squirm someday.

4) Younger people don’t necessarily appreciate cultural things like Jazz, but if there is a big incline hill to roll down, football to be played, funnel cakes, and a 20 ft fountain to run through then all is well with the world.

Most of all I just wanna thank all of you who read Jell’s last post and in your mind’s eye for a flit of a second wished me a happy birthday, but were too down on life to comment!  A big thanks for the good vibes I was getting all day long!  I could feel em transmuting to my brain, via the electrostatic currents.   Or it might have just been all the incense and pot smoking fumes from the concert… not sure which!   🙂

Just messing with ya!   Most of all I really wanna thank Jell for putting on the bestest birthday bash/extravaganza evah, and it is already 10:45 pm and the festivities are just beginning.   I mean we haven’t even had ice cream cake yet…   :p

  1. I started a blog post saying happy birthday to you, but I got distracted and never finished the post, so it’s just sitting there in another tab. LOL But Happy Birthday Hawks!!!! 🙂

  2. Maybe the reason the performances got better as the night progressed was cuz you were getting high off of incense and second hand pot …. :p

    And oh my wow! am I classified as a “younger people”? Cuz if so, and referring to number four in your list of “general observations” It says that younger people don’t necessarily appreciate cultural things like Jazz. I Object! But having said that … big incline hills to roll down, football, funnel cakes, and having a 20 ft fountain to run through sounds like soooo much fun!! Add some jazz in the background and other cultural things like art ( somewhere that it can be viewed but not ruined ) , a touch of family and friends and “then” all is well with my world :p ty ty !

    And Last but not least!!!

    The Long Awaited “Missing Hawks Birthday Excuse” By: Kala Wildcat

    I’m sorry for the belatedness
    I didn’t mean to I swear
    If it messed with your happiness
    then this, I can not bear.
    But in the past five weeks
    my journey has been long
    I traveled from here to Aussie world
    I was forced to be strong
    Without much internet I couldn’t keep up
    It took days just to reply to an email saying “sup?”
    Busy is what i was day after day
    Not much else that I can say
    And with this excuse
    This little memento
    I ask for a truce
    So that I can show
    I do wish you a happy year
    since i missed your birthday
    I know you will persevere
    In every single way
    So Happy Birthday Hawks!! Even though its late!
    Now I’m home! Missed ya much! G’day Mate!
