Christmas Eve Proper

I gathered myself together (sweeping in even all the fiddly bits hiding in the corners), and headed out last night a little after 6:30pm, searching for sustenance before the show.

Damned cultural holidays.

Red Robin: closed. Bennigan's: closed. Taxi's: closed. I ended up having dinner at Yo Yo Sushi. Thank goodness for Buddhists. Or Shintoists. Or just plain greedy commercial people.

I got to the bar on time, was pretty much set up and ready to go on time, and then had a lot of time to spend, thinking up interesting songs for people who might show up.

timenchanter showed up around, I think, 8:30pm or so.

At about 9:00pm a couple I'd never seen before came in - Liz and Ron (I know. Funny, huh?). She wanted to sing, and liked to throw songs in for him too, so I started the show.

And it was just us four for several rotations. writenwrong and supersixy came in around 10:30pm or so, as did rue_gingertabby. At something like 11:00pm, candiddani appeared, wearing a fall of Christmas ribbons in her hair, and looking quite... unwrappable...

Definitely a good time for me. trivialt came in around midnight, and I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting someone else important, like I do. But that was most of the party last night. There were a total of 11 singers, Annoying Bob was one of them, so I've accounted for 10...

Paula was there instead of Lily, and obviously was no longer used to Mondays: She asked Timmie if we should close early because of the lack of business. The bar actually ended up making towards the high end of normal for a Monday.

In fact, it wasn't too bad, rotation-wise. I closed down at about 1:55am, at the end of the 12th round. Timmie and I closed up, he headed home, and I headed out in hopes of supper.

The Mini-Gourmet's damned "Open 24 Hours" sign was on. Liars. But Denny's, bless their shrunken bean-counting corporate hearts, was actually open. My favorite waiter at the one I normally go to at 1st St. was there - apparently all the rest of the waiting staff had deserted with some excuse or another, so he'd spent a fairly busy night waiting alone. Seemed happy about the tips, though.

Then, of course, home, sitting in my chair, playing on the net, and desperately trying to digest a Denny's meal. Some people go for wimpy sports like Rugby, but I go for the a real man's game: Late night coffeehouse meal wrestling.

So I haven't had a huge amount of sleep, and now I'm going to get into the shower. Timmie and I have been invited to Shawn and Eddie's for Christmas dinner, and I'd better hurry up and get dressed...

Current Location: The Duplex
Mood: cheerfulcheerful
the other singer

Joe (I beleive his name) was there. The guy with the really good voice that sings "Listen".

Glad the bar did a good amount of business. Judging from Eric's hangover today, I bet I know where some of the money came from. LOL. JK

Re: the other singer

Timmie was just reminding me of him. As far as I know, his name is Jay - and so he signs up as "J".

The bar did just fine - though I'm sorry to hear about the hangover. Hydration is one's friend. At the very least, it puts something in the stomach to heave up...

Re: the other singer

oh yeah. It's Jay. Sorry about the mistake.

Is there going to be karaoke tonight at KOC, or will it just be a friendly gathering?

Re: the other singer

No biggie.

There's no plan for karaoke. If there's some sort of huge disturbance in the force, I might be convinced to drag the equipment over.

Re: the other singer

whoo hoo. I'll pray to master Yoda for some dark side rumbelings

Re: the other singer

Well, I appreciate your appreciating my appreciation, or something like that. LOL. Either way, it was a blast. Especially Lady Marmalade. LOL Hope to see ya around forr karaoke more often. :)

Take it as you would most like, dear.

I'll say hi to Alex and Jeff when I next see them - though it may be a week or so...

And a Merry Christmas to one of my favorite intelligent talented hot friends!

Hope the easel went over well!

I couldn't tell if you'd taken it as uncomplimentary, or just too forward. I'm not sure how it would be uncomplimentary, but, hey, we all take offense at odd things sometimes...

I have this unfortunate habit of making the lovely women I know blush when I'm not there. I must work on rectifying this...

But even an unseen one is a good one. Thank you for being yourself, dear.

I was having dinner with Shawn and Eddie that evening. Alex and Jeff normally have a Wednesday party, but the holidays are a little overwhelming, and they also had both a huge Christmas party, and are planning a huge New Year's party. It'll probably be a couple of weeks before the Wednesdays pick up again.

And we are addictive, aren't we? I'll look forward to seeing you!

Well, I suppose. If you're really into that sort of thing...

But, your sign says you're open 24 hours.

"Not in a row."
