Last night was phenomenal.  We had a very large crowd, and a very engaged one - lots and lots of cheering.

cekyr0 and jeffercine came out, which always makes a night.  valeriesparks spent several hours, so both the levels of fun and  beauty in the room were pushed up a few notches for a while.  Alicia looks like she'll be becoming a fixture, which would be fine by me.  We had several new people - Rob and Tiffany, for one.  Rob's a very good singer, and Tiffany's simply amazing.

Also a really nice guy named Wayne, who sings more of the oldies.  He's originally from Lousiana, and so was singing roughly "appropriate" songs.

timenchanter was off visiting his brother, but I kept pestering him with stuff he was missing until he showed up - around midnight.  With food.

Aaaaand Lana showed up.  Lana's hard to describe.  She's a lot better singer than she used to be, which means she's now just pretty bad.  I don't know.  I've got a lot of history with Lana at other shows, and I probably shouldn't talk about it too much, especially since she apparently hasn't been drinking for quite a few years.

I closed down around 1:50, and then hung around with bluize, Timmie, and Alicia for a while and shot the breeze.  Didn't make it home until 3:00, I believe.

This morning, around 8:30, my phone rang.  This is not what I knew at the time.  What I knew was that this irritating box by my head was making noise, and I wanted it to stop.

So I pressed a button.  And it stopped.  As I was congratulating myself on this success, misswong77's voice started issuing from the box, saying something about waking up timenchanter so he could show up in half an hour for hiking.

I told the voice I'd try to crawl over to his room.  She seemed to think this was amusing, which seemed odd, since it was the literal truth.  After she said goodbye, and the box went silent, I started considering the task - the largest part of which was acquiring clothes.

And feel asleep while doing so.

So hopefully everyone met up in the end.  I got a not incredibly happy voicemail from Timmie, so there may have been a few rough points.
