Pleasant Suicide

I was late to the bar last night, for the usual reason that I took too long cleaning up after my afternoon nap.

Which nap would have been more restful if I hadn't gorged myself at the funeral reception. I really don't know why I do that stuff.

So I didn't start the show until 8:20pm or so, making supersixy and the couple that came in (Hilary and Rick) wait. Given how tight the rotation was, I think they forgave me.

Around 9:30pm or so, Hilary and Rick went home, making for a very tight rotation.

Fortunately, people started showing up around 10:00pm, including timenchanter (to bartend), the lovely and talented candiddani, snafflekid, spawrhawk and Debbie, Lisa's friend Siobhan, John, synkitty, and of course a couple of others that will occur to me later.

As well as those who came later, like supersniffles and lucydogstringer.

So the 10th rotation expanded us from 2 to around 12 singers. Several of which actually did suicide. Granted, Eric did allow me to pick a couple of songs for him, but mostly he did his own, as did Hilary and Rick. After a quick discussion with Lisa, we decided I didn't know her well enough to pick out songs for her.

On the whole, this meant that I had a pretty easy night of it.

And, in fact, a great one. Debbie sang, and sang quite a bit, which was wonderful. I wish I had a video of her and Mikey tag-teaming Out Tonight.

It was a great group of people, and a wonderful time. Not a hugely profitable one, mind you, but a wonderful one. The bar take for the weekend was over 20% down over average - most of it that odd discrepancy on Sunday.

I closed at about 1:50am, at the end of the 16th round, packed up, grabbed some Denny's, went home, unpacked, and slept.

I woke up today for a bit around noonish, then when nothing else seemed to be going on, went back to sleep. So now I'm rested, and trying to motivate myself to actually get up, leave the house, and do something with the day. Like, y'know, eat something other than brownie bites.

Time will tell.

  • Stuff

    I have another little batch of new songs, this time some requests, but also several that just seemed interesting. The track count is up to 24,153,…

    I've added a significant chunk of new songs. Granted, quite a few are from "Kiss Me, Kate", but hey. Take a look. There are a few very old requests…
