Here’s a truly excellent live rendition of Always With Me, Always With You by Joe Satriani. Like he says, it’s a sweet little love song and here they play an extended long version with some intricate guitar soloing by Joe. At places it almost sounds like Celtic music.
I have to go to work tonight, doing the usual 10pm-6am shift, so therefore I am not fully free and cannot go out in the evening to enjoy a few with friends. And since I can’t skip work today and cannot skip going out on my birthday as well, I decided to go out earlier. I went over to Coffee Cube on Convent Junction for a nice brunch – a chicken sandwich and a hazelnut frappe. I took my laptop along with me and spent some time replying back to all the birthday wishes that I got in the morning in my Facebook account. It was a nice couple of hours spent there and I also answered a couple of phone calls. I was supposed to meet someone there for a business opportunity but he was called away on an emergency and contacted me to cancel our meeting and postpone it till the next week.
I then headed over to Velocity Bar & Restaurant and had a couple of vodkas+7up and some chicken and fried rice. I could not finish my fried rice, in fact not even half but the chicken was good. I spent some time there just chilling and enjoying my drinks and the chicken. I couldn’t go wild out as I want to remain sober for the office and as the responsible person that I am, I stopped at 2 drinks. I came back home to relax and lie down on my bed, take a nap and basically take it easy till late evening when I have to go get ready for work.
So cheers everyone!
So that’s another year of my life gone. Today is my birthday and I turn 35 years old today. Oh man, 35 is getting on in the years. In another 5 years I will turn the big 4-0! Holiest of all holy crap!! I am not supposed to grow that old! We had a deal Satan – I sold you my soul in exchange for eternal youth! In my mind I am always 18 but I would prefer to be 29 as I think most of that year was very good with just a couple of exceptions.
Anyways, no biggie! I am alone and I don’t have a wife, girlfriend or mistress to share this day with. I will be working tonight 10pm to 6am, so I’m here at a cafe having a little brunch – just a frappe and bite to eat. A little later I will head off to lunch and maybe a friend will join me. A beer or maybe 2 drinks is all I will have since I have to go to work later in the evening. Some good food and some quite time enjoying the moment. Then it will back home for a good nap and then get ready for work.
