suggested that you take a stage name of Molly Malone so the Gate Gestapo
doesnt bother you -- I understand the man on the gate was unconscious for an
hour and a half after that wink -- You sure do have a way with the lads....
Okay, now, you're going to get me into trouble ;) I have no such way with the
lads!!! hee hee.... As for Molly Malone - t'ain't that bad an idea. Alana
Malone. Too damned many a's. ;) My mother's maiden name was actually Hoye, an
"Ellis Island version" of O'Heough (i think that's how it was spelled
anyways...), the family behind which came from an island floating somewheres
between Scotland and Ireland. Accordingly, momma suggested that I use that
name (Hoye) when I started playing around town here, simply because it was a
lot easier for people to remember, supposedly, but I just never saw the point.
Or maybe I just wanted to avoid all those "Alana! A-hoy matey!" jokes.... ;)
<<Kudos to Chris Brennan-Hagy, teacher of many of
the NG participants, and it's organizer, for all her hard work. A really
fantastic job!!! She's awesome too. Her, and her lack of carbohydrates....
(duck, head cheese, and crystal light, right??)
Agreed, Cuzzie is the best -- but just what is crystal light - I know the
other low fat content stuff...>
LOL - some gross excuse for lemonade, the only real correlation being its day-
glo green color. ;) But hey, no carbos!!!
<<Speaking of Kicking Arse this girleen brings the best out of that fiddle of
Myself being the rock of sense was starting out the door of brendan begley's
hotel room at 2 AM when John Brennan started on the guitar with the "Star of
Munster" and my Mohawk Molly broke in with the fiddle so out comes the box
again and she is into the Old Copperplate and the Sligo maid -- I t dont think
it mattered whether I got home a 5 or 530 AM after the 3 hour drive...
whatever eedjit didnt want to let this lovely lady into the festival should be
incarcerated. in a porta john ...>>
LOL - aww, thanks Jimbo. I'm only trying to be good enough to start our
touring duo!!! Maybe Cuzzie will cook, duck and head cheese for all!! I'm glad
you stuck around for a bit though. There was plenty of room on the bed for
musicians after we rolled PassedOut-Paul's prone body outta the way. Or should
I say Bren. Begley tossed him outta the way. LOL ;) But it was really great
having tunes after none that day. Actually, I really hadn't had any since two
weeks before in DC, but hopefully such droughts will be remedied soon...
Jimbo the Curmudgeonly Magnificant
(will I ever live that down?)
LOL - not if I can help it!!
