Oy ... what a night at the bar!

This was the first real busy night I've had there, and it all pretty much came in one blast ... the bar went from having like 3 people in it to having like 30, and several of them wanting food (which is a bit of a pain in the ass for me working solo). However, due to the big crowd, I made more than twice what I've ever made in tips! I just wish the customers wouldn't show up en masse like that ... if the business was spread out evenly over the 8 hours it would be just dandy. Heck, if I was making what I made tonight five nights a week, I'd be making a nice "professional" wage doing bartending.

My back, legs, and feet are hurting me, though ... and I need to get up in 5 hours to take that rental car back in time for me to take the El downtown to make a 10am meeting at the CTC.

Still no word on the publishing job. I guess (barring the VP contacting me tomorrow about coming up to Evanston on Tuesday or Wednesday) it looks like I'll be going to that "retreat for the unemployed" afterall.
