Unbirthday

I didn't eat yesterday during the day - too busy.  I had Mena to pick up, my laptop to restore and update, and all that sort of thing.  Heading towards 5:00 I was (1) hungry and (2) tired of fast food, so I snagged timenchanter from work, and we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner.

I had to return him by 6:30 (Union meeting), which worked out perfectly well.  Then off to the show, truly early for a bit.  Set up, schmoozed with the people coming in, enjoyed the love.  dancin_whitey and wavewarrior were still feeling a tad, uh, "delicate" from swanhart's party, and told me they only came in for my birthday.  They even hung around for near 3 hours after that, which was quite impressive.  Played back the prank phone call nikari gave me on Wednesday, because he couldn't remember what he'd said.

That really must've been some party, though I gather it didn't quite reach the orange shorts level.

We got a nice group of people - mr_seed and the lovely valeriesparks, Eddie (Who was again demonstrating that he's not quite a Kinsey 6...), cekyr0 and jeffercine (Who gave me a Fry's gift certificate - yay!), twitchet (Who really wasn't in condition to go out, either, but did for meeeee - and bought me a rose), and quite a few others.  I always feel a little risky writing these lists, because I always miss at least one vital person - there were at least 35 different names signed up for karaoke alone...

I'd previously declared to Timmie that I'd accept - and drink - anything bought for me.  At the very start of the show I had a mild headache, and slight feeling of panic, so I didn't advertise this fact, and was somewhat saved by Timmie being busy until 10:30 or so.

Of course then, the alcohol started coming in.  Plus the complaints that I wasn't drinking fast enough.  All in all, I only had about 5 between 10:30 and 1:30, and bluize was fortunately not pulling much of her usual "strengthen the drink with vodka" bit.  Still, I was quite toasty.

I managed to keep the show going without interruptions or serious errors, mostly because there's not much room to fall down in that booth.  I even had Maggie checking up that I had a ride home, which was sweet.

supersniffles came in after work, which is always a plus, and the lovely unbreak_able came in about 12:30 (Yay!).  She'd apparently sped her way back from Davis.  The poor girl was exhausted, and wasn't going to stick around for too long, but...

I managed to work the show to the end.  Timmie insisted on closing down for me, so I hung out a little bit more, then he took me, Cindi, Debbie, and h20crazyguy to Denny's.  That was enough to sober me up to the point I could drive home, which shows I wasn't all that drunk in the first place...

A truly great night.  And here, the next day, I get to post about it on my laptop while in bed.  Wheee!
