Not that it was too serious of a problem. I hugged both Mikey and Debbie, then settled down in the chapel for 20 minutes.
It was actually restful to sit and quietly think about death and life for a bit. Apparently not so for other people - I was surrounded by semi-whispered conversations about inanities.
Humans. Gotta love 'em.
Then off to the bar, where I was set up exactly on time. Shortly after that, snafflekid showed up, fresh from his school-imposed exile.
Sadly, I didn't have enough people to actually start until 9:15pm. It picked up nicely from there, though.
The rotation stayed around 8 for most of the night, and we even had a short visit from Mikey and a very exhausted Debbie.
They arrived just in time for Kendall's "I'm free!" champagne toast.
We also had moahb, and Daniel, and supersniffles (sporting her new laptop!), and synkitty, and Roberta&Christina, and trivialt, and Jason, and, well, others. It was a very fun evening. Most people left by 1:00am, and so the rotation sped up considerably. I finished the 12th round at 1:50am, then showed some more videos that Kendall hadn't yet seen.
I closed up and left the bar around 2:20am (with not a huge amount of money in pocket. The bar made about 30% less than I expected. Them's the breaks), then had some supper at the Mini.
And home for a few hours of attempted sleep while fending off said supper.
Then up at 8:00am in a failed attempt to make it on time to Mikey's dad's funeral service. I was again half an hour late, but managed to sneak into a back pew, and was definitely in time to hear the eulogies.
Then off to the cemetary, car-sharing with chargerboy, through the ceremonies there (I found the military one very moving), then back to the church for an overabundance of food, and hanging out with the group.
I left about the same time as Mikey and Deb, and hit the Campbell Fry's in order to reconnect with reality.
Well, my kind of reality, anyways.
A bit of that, and I was keeling over. I'm back home, and I'm going to try for some more "sleep" before tonight's show.
Kendall won't be there tonight, but Mikey and possibly a sister may. Kendall is however bringing a dish to Thursday's pot-luck at the bar. I very much look forward to that....
