Too bad there weren't more people to appreciate it...
I delayed until almost 9:00pm, waiting for 4 singers. At that point, it was myself, dwo, sjgrrrl, and Yvonne. Towards the end of the first round, kizmet100 walked in.
And apart from one round, that was the most people I had all night. At one point, k_magic, moahb, hogarthhughes and Rick showed up. Three of them sang in one round (Guess which three), and then they left.
I had the further disadvantage that the new setup allows me to run through songs much more rapidly. Not what was really needed last night, but it was nice anyway. It was especially nice having the extra time to look for songs - a lot of it would have previously been taken up with pulling and refiling discs.
Yvonne ran out of songs and left somewhere around 11:00pm. Heather gave up the ghost at something like 11:30pm. supersniffles showed up just before midnight, as usual - then Maggie left.
So from midnight on, there were three of us. I would have stopped early, but Cindi and David were drinking, and so I kept going until about 1:40am - and the end of the 18th round.
I must have been doing something right, since someone left me a $20 bill as a tip (Thank you!). And while the bar obviously didn't do well, it didn't do as badly as one might think. So no worries there.
And that's about it, apart from one detail. Towards the beginning of the show, I got a strange phone call from some real estate type. It's not clear from the message if he intends to buy the place, or just did. He wanted to know how long it would take me to clear my stuff out.
Since my agent has been completely silent about any progress on the house, I haven't really had an idea of what's been going on for a while. I'm going to drop by there before I go home, check the mail, and see if anything odd has changed. My intent is to spend most of tomorrow there, anyway. I've been neglecting the move for too long.
