Broadway, Bud and bulging biceps

Now that the “May the Fourth be with you” jokes are behind us, I trust that you all are gearing up in anticipation of the promise of a celebratory Cinco de Mayo margarita in the near future. As I sit here on a cherry red chair in the upstairs section of my booth at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), nursing a swollen knee, aching feet and sore smiling muscles, I have to admit that I’m saddened that neither rum nor tequila is in the cards for me tonight due to the excessive amounts of anti-inflammatory pills I’ve been popping like Tic-Tacs.

I know. I’m pathetic.

But do not fear. I have something to look forward to. I’m leaving for New York City tomorrow to see the one and only Christopher J. Hanke in the Tony-nominated play “How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

You all remember my friend Christopher right? If not, you can read about him HERE.

I received a text message from him many months ago that simply read: “Just landed the part of Bud Frump on How 2 Succeed starring Harry Freaking Potter!” Needless to say, I was thrilled and wore my red and gold Gryffindor quidditch t-shirt to bed that night because I was so proud of my friend…the Broadway star. (The “I Heart Hanke” t-shirt was dirty.)

Last night, I received another text from Hanke. He told me to check his new video blog on and to start following him on Twitter. But this was the best part:

“If I get a certain number of followers, I’ll post a shirtless pic for your readers.”

Challenge accepted.

Let me tell you dear readers…Kyp’s abs have nothing on this guy. If you are a tweeter, Twitterer or even sometimes a twit, please follow my hilarious friend @cjHANKE. You will not be disappointed.
