Happy Birthday to my Hubby

Mr. Karaokegal is 49 today. He's going through a bit of a depression about it. I could tell because the living room was cleaned up when I got home last night, including my laptop which usually resides on the couch.

Since I'm a few years away from this particular milestone, I'm not sure exactly what kind of feelings the age is bringing up for him and why it's happening this year.

He's been a total peach about putting up with a years and a half of House/LJ/Smut obsession on my part, to the extent that when we're watching movies or TV together, I often have the laptop on, the notebook open or both. Sometimes I'm even chatting with my internet buddies.

Because Hubby is an RN working the night shift, he doesn't have a large social life right now. The current shift of working three nights 7PM-7AM means he also hasn't been able to participate in an Irish Music session that was very important to him. I think he feels somewhat isolated and it could be that House/LJ/Smut obsessed wifey isn't as supportive as she could be.

We're going out to our favorite Italian restaurant tonight and have invited several people to come out with us and celebrate. He's a little worried that no one will show. It's an odd thing because as you know we're not generally social and we usually celebrate birthdays with just the two of us going to dinner.

I got him tickets to see Nickel Creek (he worships Chris Theile) but he busted the surprise by asking me the other day if I'd done anything about that. Usually he totally forgets who's playing unless I get the tickets and remind him.

Anyway, if anyone wants to send birthday wishes, I'll pass them along.

Happy Birthday to blueashke

One of my karaoke kronies, as well as an LJ-er.

She has recently passed on some very good advice about birthdays, which can be found HERE.

I'll be singing her request tomorrow at the Mint, but for those of you who won't be there to here it, here's the preview-Feel free to sing along.

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

With all the charms of a woman
You've kept the secret of your youth
You led me to believe
You're old enough
To give me Love
And now it hurts to know the truth

Whaoo-oh-oh
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Beneath your perfume and make-up
You're just a baby in disguise
And though you know
That it's wrong to be
Alone with me
That come on look is in your eyes

Whaoo-oh-oh
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

So hurry home to your Mama
I'm sure she wonders where you are
Get out of here
Before I have the time
To change my mind
'Cause I'm afraid we'll go too far

Whaoo-oh-oh
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Fic Round Up for First Quarter of 2007

In preparation for the "Stump The Author" meme. I promise, I have NOT been re-reading while I did this. I'll probably post the meme on Sunday night, but if you want to start trolling, be my guest.

Boxed Set 2006 can be found HERE

Looking at this list, I keep thinking that I really am a round-heeled H/W shipper. That's a lot of damn pairings to have written in four months, not even counting the femslash drabbles.
