Today has been a long day. So far I’ve taught two classes – One Swing, One World and an aerials class – and done a tech rehearsal for tonight’s show. I now need to shower, eat dinner, do my hair and makeup, and then get ready to perform!!
Wish me luck!
Oh yeah, and if’ you’re feeling overly generous, you can buy me something by either going here or clicking on a picture of something below:
Or you can just send me an email wishing me Happy Birthday!

What a fun Birthday Day Ms. Sharon Davis just had. Well (smirk), at least according to my standards.
Last night around 3am we celebrated Shaz by indulging in brownies and ice cream. Kev bought a round of treats for us all and then we sang Happy Birthday. As we continued to eat, in good ol’ Herrang fashion, foreigners continued to walk by the Blue Moon Cafe and then it dawned on the group of us to get them to sing. Slowly but surely, Sharon was serenaded multiple times, by multiple people, in multiple languages. Here’s the list of what came by:
Portuguese – Parabéns a você,
Italian – buon compleanno
French – Joyeux anniversaire !
German – Alles gute zum Geburtstag!
Finnish – Hyvää syntymäpäivää
Norwegian – Gratulerer med dagen!
Danish – Tillykke med fødselsdagen
Swedish – Grattis på födelsdagen !
Hebrew – ום הולדת שמח “Yom Huledet Sameakh”
Ukrainian – Многая Літа Олек! (Mno-haja Leeta Oh-lek)
Russian – С днём рождения! S dnyem rojdeniya!
Lithuanian – su gimtadieniu Su gimimo diena
Hungarian -boldog születésnapot
Irish – Breithlá shona duit
Mime – this was acted out silently, but with much enthusiasm
Hopefully I’ve have found the correct translations and have linked to to appropriate songs. If you know of a better video clip of someone singing “happy birthday” in whatever language, please send it to me.
Happy Birthday Shaz!! Enjoy your mustache, your jewels, the cake and banana bread!!! xoxoxo

OMG, after working my booty off the past six weeks I was in dire need of a vacation. Thank goodness I planned one for myself months ago!!! Two weeks of vacation….how luxurious!
Friends and family; that’s how I roll. Over the past 2 weeks I was in Minneapolis, Berkeley, and Stinson Beach. How wonderful!
I haven’t seen Jason, Trish, or Alan for longer than I can remember, so our time together was far over due. While there I got to work out (ever so slightly), watch tv (I don’t have access to one normally, except at hotels) and learn about Top Gear (brilliant!!!), eat some great BBQ, and howl at the moon with my buddies. Ooh, and I must not forget that I got to borrow the entire Twilight series and finished them in a week.
The following weekend I headed to the Bay Area and spent some time with some family. The weather was great, it air smelled fantastic, the organic food was plentiful, and family was lovely as always. It was my aunt’s birthday and so we celebrated it at Stinson Beach. Many of her friends drove the hour out to the beach and brought delectable treats with them. There was too much eating, but boy was it yummy!
After a long stretch of hard work, there was no better reward than seeing the people I love.
