Which means it was 6:30 by the time I got to their place with the stuff.
I rushed back down as fast as was practical, and got to the bar at, oh, around 7:10, which wasn't too shabby at all. So I proceeded to talk with bluize and Gretchen. Sigh.
I didn't get the show started until around 8:20, in the end. Of course, I only had three people signed up by that point, so it wasn't too too much of a problem. Still, not good.
And then people started coming in. It actually got busyish there for a while, though the longest rotation was probably about 75 minutes or so.
trivialt didn't show up, though he did leave a very groggy voicemail that I finally listened to around 4:00am.
It was hot in the bar last night. It was hotter in the DJ booth than the rest of the bar. And I discovered, through practical testing, that rehydrating using pint glasses of gin&tonic doesn't work all that well. Not to mention making one's announcements more slurred than usual.
valeriesparks and mr_seed showed up after a long absence (for her, at least). Apparently, she managed to finagle Mondays off, and so will be at the bar more. Yay!
There were a number of new people - and also Jim&Cora, who normally patrol the standard karaoke circuit. I suspect they were there for the karaoke contest that didn't happen.
I ran a total of 6 rounds, finishing the last one at 1:55. Then I shut down, took Heather home, then Jasmine home, then wended my way to Cardinal Lounge.
Then back home, where I haven't really slept all that much, unfortunately. Glad I bought that room air conditioner last year, though.
