A funny song about Alyssa's "boyfriend" Dick and what she likes to do with him...

I was excited to celebrate my birthday at the Shout House because the birthday person gets a bunch of free things and FREE DRINKS all night!  If you bring three friends in on the Tuesday of your birthday week you get a free t-shirt, hat, keychain and souvenir mug good for free drinks.  The original date was set for Dec 23, but the Shout House was closed for the Christmas week so I was able to reschedule for the following Tuesday.  I invited a bunch of friends and coworkers and reserved our tables.  It snowed pretty much all day Tuesday and finally ended an hour before we left.  The roads were snowy, slick and slow going and over half my group canceled.  I was a little bummed but I still had a really good time. 

We got there early and ordered food - we got the Thai Pie (pizza) and Taco pizza to share.

  Yum!  People began trickling in and everyone was finally there by 10 pm.  Mark (travelman727) ended up being in the area for other reasons and made the drive up for the night.  The place was packed, even considering the bad roads, and a lot of groups were there celebrating birthdays.  We put up a few requests and enjoyed watching the pianos and singing along. 

I went up on stage for my birthday song, which somehow ended up being about my "boyfriend" Dick and I'm sure you can imagine what dirty things I "did" with him.  I was even given a flashlight as a prop to demonstrate.   It was pretty funny.  All in all it was a fun night filled with good food, good friends, good music and lots of laughs.  Can't ask for much more.

I've uploaded the video of my birthday song - it is hilarious! - if you are into adult humor.  If not, don't watch it.  I also posted a video of Nick playing part of a song.  He is an awesome pianist and musician and his hands just fly over the keys.   Look up his video of The Devil Went Down to Georgia on You Tube - it is amazing.  He even plays part of it blindfolded!  I requested the song (blindfolded) but he didn't use the blindfold.  The crowd was really into it - he's so fun to watch.
