Relaxed Sunday

Another low-key day yesterday. I spent a good part of the day working on that database application, with some progress for a change. Also some idea of how much I've bitten off for a few aspects.

It ain't the display, it's the lookup - particularly for the handling of deleted records.

timenchanter and I left the Duplex a little early, and had a reasonably nice dinner at the new Fantazia Thai restaurant on north First. Then a little walk around the area (OK, we were really early), and a slow, relaxed drive to the bar - which got us there at 6:30pm.

It at least meant we had a little more time to air the place out before anybody showed up.

We didn't have enough people to start the show until 8:40pm or so, of course, and I didn't actually start until 8:55pm, because I was having too good a reaction to the videos.

I'd mentioned the banana as proof of God video to Timmie earlier, and while it was just ourselves and some guy named Bruce, I showed that and the ever-amusing peanut butter as disproof of evolution video.

I could make a drinking game out of these videos. Take a shot when you spot the logical fallacy...

Anyway, people started appearing around then, and the rotation actually headed up to an hour long for, well, a couple of hours. Too many people to completely count, but we had sparkle_journal and jackal_logic, electrichobbit and jorgitoelcubano, trivialt and Jason, spawrhawk and Dominic, Nate-o and Colleen, and quite a few others that didn't show up in pairs, like qzar_mystik and lucydogstringer.

We also had short visits by both Esperanzas. The one to get me some data, and pass out Club Spice fliers, and the other, well. Her usual.

At something like 11:00pm, my deodorant must have run out, because almost everyone headed home at roughly the same time. We were left with kizmet100, Mikey, Dominic, Nate-o, Steven, and a couple of trannies that had been there before, Cheri and Jacci. It actually took a little bit of convincing on Timmie's part to keep Cheri singing, because she "wasn't as good as others there," but once the concept got through, the two of them put up quite a few songs.

So it certainly never got all that dead. I ran for about 8 rotations before closing just before 2:00am. Timmie and I were closed up and out of there before 2:30am.

The bar did OK. Less than my goal for Sundays, but only by 14% or so.

Then some cooldown time at IHOP, and home, where I got to sleep before too long.

Today I've been doing a little coding, but of a different sort - for one thing, all the database stuff is on the machine at the bar. However, I'm getting tired of hard coding some of the bar website front page stuff, so I'm working on putting together a small queuing system, which will hopefully be easier to use - at least for me.

Right now, though, I should probably get up and ready for tonight.
