Tonight's the night!

My little niece will be on NBC's "Scrubs" in another couple of hours. A few of us will be tuning in here at the office. I was thinking of bringing in Bugles as a telesnack, but I then thought that would be too salty and greasy. So I brought in a coupla bags of Tropical Chex Mix With Almonds instead.

I sent my niece a card with a drawing of myself and two co-workers who are planning to watch. I'm guessing her scenes will be brief, so I'm VHSing the episode.

It's been a while since I've written about the big Mad Jack/Burners double-bill set to take place at 8 p.m. May 11 at O'Malley's Bar & Grill in Gloucester City.

Rehearsals have been a lot of fun. We Burners made our show a bit more danceable, a bit less stadium-rock-ish, by losing a few numbers, bringing back a few (such as "Magic Carpet Ride") and introducing three new songs, all by the Rolling Stones. We're even opening with one of the new ones, just to give the whole show a new complexion. With the new venue, the elevated stage with the built-in light show, a remodeled set list and some new comedy bits, the show should feel pretty fresh.

The Burners are doing one more rehearsal without me, to brush up on some endings, etc. Me and Mad Jack will be getting together this weekend to run through our 90-minute set two more times. I'm being SUPER careful not to catch a cold.

AND I'm getting pretty hungry for that Tropical Chex Mix With Almonds.
