Thinking about going to The Castle? Think again! Tonight is the Gasparilla Night Parade in Ybor City! It’s going to be INSANE down there. Parking alone is going to cost you $20, and you’re going to have to deal with thousands of drunken idiots with wandering hands (ladies, if you’ve been you know what I’m talking about). Why on Earth would you want to do that?

How about some live theater instead?

For LESS than the cost of parking alone, you can get a ticket to see the Jobsite Theater’s Phyro-Giants! The Tampa Tribune says that “Phyro-Giants! has something new to say about relationships,” while the St. Petersburg Times calls it “Lively, crisp and entertaining.” What’s more, netgoth, etcet, aishlynn and I are going to be there. Great theater AND great company! You can’t miss!!

Tonight is the last performance of this show, so this is your last chance. Get out and support live theater!

On a completely unrelated note…. this is a damned tempting offer.

So I had a great time last night. Went out to Karaoke and finally met junwin (who, it turns out, I actually gave the code to start her LJ three years ago. It’s been so long I had forgotten!). It was an absolute delight to finally get a chance to meet face to face, even if it was hard to hear over the music. I also got to meet queenbarbee‘s other half, who was quite cool (and can throw some MAD gang signs). Several completely new faces to me as well, and a startling revelation – After years and years of promoting herself as a god-awful Karaoke singer, something happened to good_eeevening. She got good. Like, really good. Sure, maybe it’s only on the songs she’s done a billion times…but damn. And my, but does she turn her songs into a production for the rest of the bar.

I, on the other hand, was frustrated yet again by the selection. I guess my tastes are just far too eclectic (and I’m too over-anxious about sounding bad by picking a song I don’t know backwards and forwards). I choose “Thunder Rolls” by Garth Brooks first, but their CD had been stolen. I settled on the theme from “Rawhide,” but when I got up to do it the song started halfway through so I was up there for all of 30 seconds (and sounded like ass, because it wasn’t in the style of the Blues Brothers). Was going to do the Garth Brooks cover of “Shameless,” but I left before I was called again.

I just need to start carrying my own CD’s with me to these things.

Had some Outback Steakhouse goodness for an early Valentine’s Day dinner last night. Good, but hoooo the points. Yes, I actually calculated them. Needless to say, there are no FLEX points left for me this week.

And on that note, I’m gonna go for a walk. Later, folks.
