Lost and Found

I had a terrible time getting up yesterday - just dragging.

Somewhere in the morning, synkitty called me to ask if I had her phone charger. I couldn't tell her - it would be in the car, I was in bed.

As I dragged on, she kept messaging me. I finally got dressed and ready to go, got in the car, found the charger, and messaged her. No answer. Called her. No answer.

As I was heading to the show, I got a "Sorry, phone was off to conserve power", but no answer as to what I could do to meet up.

Today, as I was rushing off to my staff meeting, I got a voicemail from her about "arranging a meeting".

All I've got to say is "Great timing, Synthia!"

Hopefully I'll be able to get the damn thing to her before I leave for New York...

The show last night was, well, weird. Fun though...

For the first half of the night, the rotation was myself, valeriesparks, Paul, and timenchanter.

Around 10:00, supersniffles showed up - and around midnight, so did Steven.

There were a few deviations (Including dancin_whitey replacing Valerie for the last two rounds), but that was mostly it - for 14 rounds.

trivialt didn't come in at all.

That was the more normal aspect. Then there was the straight couple that walked in - the male being medium-height, having a shaved head, and wearing black clothes.

His name was Michael. When our normal Michael walked in, wearing all black, it started looking like a twin-fest.

He proceeded to get too shit-faced to stand steadily - but was still generally acting like a pretty nice guy.

His companion relaxed enough to start dancing about a third of a way through the evening - mostly with Timmie and Steven. Kind of interpretive dancing - lots of dramatic pauses. Interesting - and in her case, quite attractive.

Paul and Valerie started going a bit crazy about picking songs for people. It started with picking ones for me, but proceeded into picking ones for each other (Sometimes punitively), and then on to Timmie as well.

Made my job easier.

For some reason, I seemed to be singing better than usual. I was given several songs I'd royally screwed up in the past, and didn't do too badly. "Darling Nikki", for example.

Probably the Rum&Cokes.

Then there was Lee. Lee was an almost archetypical little lush, who at one point decided to do a Tom Petty, and didn't do half bad.

As I was closing down, he pulled out a penny whistle and started playing.

Definitely an interesting night.

Hee Hee - I's Smart!

"Intellectually" Intelligent

You're 'Intellectually Intelligent.' That pretty much means that you're good with theoretical ideas and concepts - but this comes to you naturally. More or less, you're a natural brainiac. Good for you.

I should have put this up earlier - especially since most of the people on my friends list are Californians.

Today is the special election. If you haven't already, go out and vote. If you don't know the issues, check your local news organization, make a decision and VOTE!

If you aren't registered, go to your local polling place and do so - at least you'll be able to make a difference the next time around.

This country is politically one of the most right-leaning in the world, but not because of its populace - mostly because the vast majority of liberals don't bother to vote.

To those who think it's "too much trouble": It's an amazingly easy process, from registration through voting itself. With the 'net available, research is trivial. This is the only way meaningful change and improvement can be achieved short of violent revolution. What the hell is wrong with you?

To those who "protest" by not voting: You're an idiot. You're doing the equivalent of protesting taxes by giving all your money to the IRS. Yes, the decisions may all be between the lesser of two evils. So what? Pick the lesser, and force gradual change in the direction of the greater good.

That is all, except: VOTE!

Should Have Mentioned

If you don't trust the electronic voting machines, ask for a paper ballot. It'll still be counted electronically, but leaves a paper trail.

Oh, and VOTE! See jeffercine's comments on my last post about voting sans registration.
