I've been too buried lately to post, but right now I'm home while Mike, The Ninja of Plumbers, and his crew are dealing with Ninja Plumbing stuff, so I've got a moment. Which is good, because there's been a lot going on.

I turned 40 this weekend, and as previously mentioned, celebrated with a blowout show at Nick's Bar & Restaurant, featuring performances by Cha-Cha Connor and Dr. Nat Needles; McKendy Fils-Aimes; Sarah Sapienza; Jade Sylvan & Speaker For the Dead; Corrina Bain; Gary Hoare; Lea Deschenes; The Duende Project and Regie Gibson with musical accompaniment. I read a handful of poems, too, but mostly just to keep things moving while musicians rearranged instruments.

We had a packed house, and everything on stage killed. I mean killed. Everything was blisteringly good. I can't even begin to single out any particular bit. Everything was tight and energetic, and by the time we got to Regie at the end, with his amazing presence and singing voice, it was just an explosion of good energy. Terribly, terribly gratified by the all thing, and a great way to kick off my 40s.

Otherwise, everything is much the same as always. Busy, busy, busy. The next big thing is that I'll be LiveBlogging the Grammys for Telegram.com on Sunday. I have some preliminary thoughts in my column today. Please join me as I see how many LL Cool J jokes I can squeeze into a few hours!

And that's that. To tell the truth, 40 doesn't seem so different than 39. Let's see where it all goes ...
