…my girlfriend. Yes, that charming, witty, intelligent and very funny pianist that I mentioned in several posts. She loves working at “Howl at the Moon” in Tampa. What an INCREDIBLE job to have, to be paid to play music, be a smartass and have fun with the intoxication population!
She has been lurking for a while, (even searching for MY old posts! Egad!) and decided recently to start being active on the boards.
Welcome, FL Blues Baby! Hope you have a wonderful time on the boards. Now, do ya mind if I ask you a personal question? I have a friend who used to live in Tampa, and she sang at a club. I THINK it was called “1920s.” Do you know anyone from over there? Girl named Tia? She’d be about 19, kind of looked like Britney Spears?
Thanks, everybody. I just woke up (it’s a weird life working nights…) so I’m sorry I didn’t get to this post sooner.
To Sophie, Gartog, Cougarfang,Pezpunk and Superdude: Greetings and salutations.
Yes, I do play the piano for a living. (shhhhh…don’t tell anyone though. I might have to get a real job.)
Pez: I’d LOVE for you to come over and sit in. I won’t even make any drummer jokes, although it’s tempting…
Gartog: I’ve enjoyed reading your posts for sometime. Nice to ‘meet’ you.
Cougarfang: I have three fat sassy cats that allow me to feed and house them, so I appreciate the welcome rub.
And here’s a <headbut> right back at ya.
Superdude: I do not know a Tia. Must admit I do not know any singers in the Tampa area that resemble the Disneyite BS. I do, however, have a great redheaded friend who’s 5’11" and single with a teriffic talent and sense of humor that I could introduce you to. She sings at the club next to mine.
Ellen: I do have a rather, uhm, close association with 812. I’ll spare you the details…unless, of course, you folks would like to know…<raising one eyebrow, and sharing a knowing look…)
And finally, to my own dear 0icu812: You, I’ll see later.
Thanks again everybody.
Wow. A drummer, a piano player, and I play guitar. We might have the makings of the Straight Dope Banned Band. Maybe we should steal a “band name” to use. I’d vote for either Cuntfunnel or Spermicidal Lollipop
Please do. Feel free to give her my email (seriously), or invite her to join. Sometime after the turn of the year, I’ll make it down to that area for a DopeFest.
Welcome and well met! So you’re the woman I’ve heard nothing but glowing reviews about. (O mentioned you a few times at SaraDope last spring… ;)) Glad to see he managed to get you to your newest addiction. Soon, you’ll think of nothing but your next hit of [sub]the[/sub] Dope [sub]Board[/sub]. If it hasn’t happened already.
anything about my boyfriend, including his admittedly sophmoric sense of humor. (Especially since I have no clue what iampunha refers to…maybe clue me in? I am a natural blonde, btw.)
True, I am not at FSC this year. Sadly, playing music until 2 or 3 am makes it difficult to attend class(much less teach) at anytime before noon. I am hoping to work with their theater dept next year on a musical theater course, as long as it’s offered in the late afternoon.
I’m off to sing for my supper. I’ll check back in on everyone at 3 a.m.
Blues, I don’t blame you there. Trying to work late and do early classes is next to impossible. I used to work at the Phar-Mor that was out by the Mall (in what’s now the deserted wasteland of a stripmall) until around 12, and then try to get my homework done for my classes, and still be up for my 8am Calc classes. Needless to say, I missed more Calc classes than I attended!
Does Richard Levine still run the theater department? I was a Theater minor when I was at Southern, and was more interested in muscial theater than straight theater. But the Theater Department and the Music Department just couldn’t seem to work together much, so I switched my focus more to theater management. (They didn’t do much with that either, though). Best of luck with being able to offer the class, though. Keep me posted on how it goes?
