Oh, Jim! You were just happy because I pulled your lovely wife on stage and did semi-naughty things to her. ;)
But in all honesty and semi-seriousness, it meant the world that you came out to our show and brought your posse of intellectuals and freaky geeks to see a bit of the glittery spectacle [slash] wild times [slash] sheer powerhouse playtime that is Saturday night at Revolution.
For those of you reading this who don’t know Jim [and who are wary now of posting anonymously because you think I have some weird Tumblr psychic sense and can divine who is actually behind each anonymous post…it’s true, I can…], he is my mentor, my
former professor, my business partner, my motivation, and most [best] of all, my dear friend.
Jim is a Guinness drinking, picture taking, plane flying, soccer playing, dog walking, coffee drinking, hot wife having, wit mastering, English Canadian illegal alien (for a bit) visionary and probably the smartest guy I’ve ever met. He’s also really, really nice. He makes me want to try with all my might every second of every day to be the person he thinks I am.
He’s a large feature in my most recent adventures, so you’ll get to read a bit more about him and his wily ways in an upcoming post.
But back to you, Jim - having you at Rev made me nervous for the first time in years, but the good kind of nervous. It really did mean so much that you took the time to go somewhere other than a pub on your night out. ;) Thank you for being such a joy to have around (and for never being offended that I’m perpetually late to our Starbucks dates).
Also, OMGAHhh, you guys see that picture of me on the right of the screen? Yeah, so silly Jim always buys my tea when we meet up, but then he even donated to my tea fund via PayPal, which was too kind! I really, really appreciate it! THANK YOU, SIR!
You see, the more tea I get, the more I can write, perform, work, dance, create, love, and live.
p.s. To answer your question Jim, years of hair whipping means that my neck is not only extra long (swan-like, I like to say), but extra strong. This neck could probably lift a semi-truck. (Let’s never test that theory.)
p.p.s. If you ever need any photography, from aerial photography to head shots to wedding shoots to pretty much anything you want captured on camera, check out Jim’s company, MacBeth Photography. They do a ridiculously good job, and they also offer a thing called First Friday Photos, which is a mini shoot for a teeny donation and you get some bangin’ shots. Many of the photos seen on this blog are from Jim, so get on it before I book him solid. ;)
