January 15th, 2008



After my last post I - of course - slept. Which was my activity largely until I got ready for the evening. I mean, there were a few things. I've completely restored the data to the replacement drive for my old laptop. I just haven't installed it yet...

Then I need to figure out what to do with the laptop. I don't know how much life it's got left, but it's got some, and even I only need so many computers.

What with one thing and another I didn't get to the bar until just before 8:00pm. Of course this meant that dwo, hollyk, and sjgrrrl were already there and waiting. Honestly, I should be late more often. When I'm on time, not as many people show up.

And that was the start of a pretty busy night. In contrast to Sunday, we had one more rotation (8), but without the "killer" rotation followed by a die-off. People came, people left, but the rotation stayed fairly solidly around 12. The bar and I did quite well, in fact enough to more than make up for the shortfall last week.

As usual, I won't be able to list everyone. Definitely candiddani, who I'll forgive for neglecting me and focusing on Hex because Hex is, let's face it, pretty awesome. I can't forget snafflekid, because I had way too much fun torturing him. I still can't believe he actually sang Snowbird.

rue_gingertabby, who it turns out was acting a little wilder than usual because she was coming down with a fever, was there most of the night. She was starting to have chills by the time I rescued her from her work site after the show.

We had a bit of Shawn and Eddie, some lucydogstringer (with a "straight" friend in tow), a couple of cute little gay boys (Adrian and Joshua), some spawrhawk...

The rest will come to me in a flash as soon as I post this.

I had way too much fun picking songs. Amazingly, most people sang the ones I gave them. In fact, the only person I had real difficulty with was, again, timenchanter. Lately, if I pick a pop song (regardless of popularity or period), he doesn't know it, and if I pick country, he complains that that's all I give him.

Ah well. This too shall pass. I always have trouble reading someone, and for some reason it's frequently the person behind the bar.

After closing down and rescuing Beckah, I spent a couple of hours relaxing at Denny's, then made my way home, and for the first time ever, didn't unload the car. It was too cold, and I was too tired. The spot normally taken up by the rack on my workbench is also the perfect place to set up my space heater.

So I went to sleep in an actual warm room. Nice.

I've been up for a little while now, catching up and sipping tea.

For my next trick, I'm going back to bed.
