Oooh, yeah ...

I was SO worried this was going to be another of "those games", but da Bears pulled within 3 points by halftime, and they came out firing in the second half ... and they need to patent that "missed FG run back for a TD" play ... it's mighty sweet!

  BEARS       38  
  GIANTS     20  

I was disappointed that there weren't very many people coming in to the bar to watch the game, but nearly everybody who came in tonight ordered food, which pushed the check totals up to where I ended up with my "usual tip" (it's amazing how frequently I end up within a $5 range there) ... without that I would have probably come close to tying for worst night for tips.

But, hey ... I got paid to watch football ... and the Bears won ... what's to complain about?

Geez ... I just got called in to work both tonight and tomorrow at the bar. I don't think I've ever had back-to-back gigs there, and now 3 in a row? Freaky.

I'm also not sure I'm happy with that ... I have a bunch of things I need to get taken care of this week, and this is truncating my days big time. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to knock down my #1 project for today before I have to start getting ready to head out. Bummer. Maybe I need to concentrate on #2 and #3, I might be able to finish up on those and just get started early tomorrow on the other.

Needless to say, I'm hoping there's going to be at least as much tip action as last night ... I got about 1/3 of my best night, but about 5x my worst night ... and I certainly like it better when I'm on the upper end of that scale!
