Off to an exciting start

Well, here in our time zone I turned 30 years old at 12:59 AM this morning. Funny thing was, at 12:58:40 AM an oxygen alarm sounded and I was running to get my SCBA gear on and lead the fire brigade as necessary. It turned out to just be a sensor that had failed, but we still deployed a few firefighters, myself included, to be on hand in case there was in fact a displaced oxygen environment inside the cryogenics building. So, I was pretty wired up after that and didn't get to sleep until after 2:30 AM. Being who I am, I was up at 6 o'clock as usual to start another work day (#142 since I had a day off). People around the station definitely seem to be pretty tired after their little early morning adventure.

The Re-Tardis seems to be handily bashing its way through spacetime towards the concert next weekend. Our songs are really getting honed to performance quality, and I personally am to the point where sheet music isn't absolutely necessary for the 11 songs we've added since last time.

The moon is up, and it's a whole different ballgame working outside again. I've got a few projects that I have been postponing until there was better light outside that I'll get to attempt to take care of now.

So, I'll sign off with a sated state of mind as I polish off the last of my birthday banana nut bread (I gave up desserts and a bunch of other unhealthy foods over a month ago).

Hippo birdies, two ewes!!!

But to call dessert unhealthy? You can, in fact, have problems if you eat too much salad.
Sorry about the no-days off bit. Can you post anything to you-tube of the band? People stateside would love to see it!

There might be some videos from the first concert in the works, but I'd almost bet there will be stuff up first from the second concert this weekend.
