The other "not bad" thing that happened today was that my interview at the Japanese Restaurant went very well, and I really do think that I will be being called in for training very soon. They're only needing somebody on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays right now, but in combination with the Hotel gig, I should be fairly busy, if not raking in mad cash (i.e., a restaurant bartender is not doing the sort of volume that a "bar" bartender is doing, so my tips are likely to be moderate). I find it ironic that none of this bartending stuff surfaced until I gave up on it and moved on to the "back to trying to get a professional gig" process. I really do try not to be bitter, but I still am most of the time.
Aside from that it was something like 100° around here today (with humidity pushing the "feels like" number much higher), so, needless to say, it was not fun having to run around to these various appointments ... good thing that the results didn't suck or it would have been a major downer!
