We were there a bit early (actually, I was there a lot early, but I was giving Timmie a ride), and we set up the place gradually. Which was especially a good idea, because I'm not sure we even had customers by 9:00pm. Around 9:30pm a few trickled in (Honey, kizmet100, and Jason, to name the singers), and I started up what looked to be a slowish evening.
You never know with holidays.
Of course, as the short first round progressed, kshandra, supersniffles, chargerboy (and Gayla! With cookies!), markobellydance, celticnoor, ajayav, Hex, and Kellen walked in and signed up.
The second round saw the addition of spawrhawk (after long absence), trivialt, Robin, and candiddani.
At the third, we also got tlsthatsme and justnate.
And Eddie and Shawn showed up during the last half-hour of the night.
All-in-all, five rotations, and many excellent people. I know I had a great time.
Tobi snagging me every time I walked past might have had something to do with that...
Shutdown took a little longer than usual, in part because a few people needed to sober up. Then Timmie and I headed over to Denny's to join Tobi, foxypinkninja, Robin, and Maggie.
And then home, where I unloaded, futzed around for a bit, and passed the fuck out. I was awake today for a little bit around 1:00pm, and then I started waking up at about 5:00pm. I simply can't claim lack of sleep at this point.
Of course, I've also been around a sick Timmie, and it's fairly certain that I've breathed in some of the air of a sick Tobi, so there's a decent chance the sleep was functional. I'm also sucking down elderberry stuff, just in case...
I do have a tiny bit of shopping to do, which I may or may not manage before everything closes. But otherwise, the night is relatively open.
Though I was thinking of printing a few new books. In order to keep everything up to date, I need to either print a full new set every 3 months, or a new pair every week and a half or so. It's been almost a month since the last printing - and some of them have not been treated all that well by the holiday crowd...
