One Onstage week finished, one to go and I am officially unemployed. Well, from that job anyway. After a stressful week of trying to get everything done for TCOE, and keeping my Aunt from wanting to kill me, I felt like I deserved a party. Luckily S. Eric Day was having his birthday party at Starline last night, Let's Go Bowling was playing, and lots of people I knew were going to be there.
So last night, after unpacking the set from my car into the carport, I jumped into the shower, shaved my legs, combed my hairs, put my pink party dress on, and headed North. Jag, Heather and Young Josh showed up about 5 minutes after I got there, we had drinks, talked about the terrible opening act and then boogied to some Let's Go Bowling. LGB is a great band, by the way. There were a ton of people that I knew there; Cindy, Lisi, Chris, Nicki and it was awesome to see everyone. Although I have a really hard time hearing and following conversations when there is live music, so I tend to look vague, smile and nod. I spent most of the night chatting with Young Josh, who is charming, and being a crying shoulder for a friend whose recent ex decided to show up at the party. The ex is yucky, but that's another story that is not mine to tell.
One highlight, although miniscule in the grand scheme of the night, was when a guy came over, to where I was sitting, to chat me up. I sort of know him, he's one of the cooks at Starline (he makes the best pizza), but for the life of me I can not remember his name. Anybody? At any rate, he's adorable, and when I see him again maybe I'll get up the courage to ask him out. Maybe. He's single, right?
SM showed up right when I had to leave. I really wanted to hang with him, and would have stayed, but he encouraged me to get home. Good thing too, 8am came really fast this morning. I have a crush on him, which he knows about but is trying to discourage. I'm not really sure where I'm going with that, other than just putting it out there.
