Never had to call a gig off.

You know, last Saturday’s gig was very difficult. I suffering from a severe throat illness that made my voice shot. My range was hampered severely, and I was struggling to hit my notes, let alone hear my notes. My voice was completely gone for I had a throat virus, and it seriously questioned whether the first PSB gig was on or off. Of course, I never talked about cancellation to the group, as I was hanging to every inch of positiveness I can get. Sometimes, that’s all your mind and body needs, positiveness. Specially in a time where negative feeling is pulling you down, and it seems that the odds are not in your ground, a quick switch to positiveness is what can put you back into focus. You never want to feel defeated, for if you turn to that kind of feeling, then you can kiss your plans goodbye, and plans of doing the first PSB gig I wouldn’t miss for the world.

Here’s a song we did that night, a medley of Hey Jude/Yesterday (the Beatles)

The gig went well, and we were delighted to entertain our guests in an intimate setting. We have another gig at February 12. Come check it out if you can. To get the latest updates and information regarding events, add us on facebook.com/philbertsimonband

Today is Wednesday, My favorite day.

Hump-day
I like Wednesday. It brings me the right amount of anticipation for the days to come. I say this because I like the feeling of looking forward to something like Friday and Saturday. Other people like Friday Saturday, because it the time for partying and such… but what happens when you wake up to Sunday??? Huh?? It’s all over baby. Nothing really to anticipate but Sunday which you may spend vegetating, and Monday which most people dread. But with Wednesday, you’re in the middle of the week, the Monday doldrums had just passed, and you’re almost to the fun part (Weekend).

Poker, NL Hold’em
I kinda miss going to Boulevard (code name Boules between my friend Jumaaaa and Myself). I’m in the plus there, but it’s been a while since I’ve played. I feel the itch to bust somebody with my 8s 9s stackers. Funny because I watched Maverick the other day, you know that movie with Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster; wild west and poker. Pretty cool. I know, I know… very random, but it had poker in it, and I wanna play.

What’s your favorite day? And what’s your favorite poker hand? I guess you just found out a tell from me, or did you?
