You And Me Against The World

Well, it was an interesting weekend for me.
Let's start with Friday. I was at the bar, getting my drums set up, when the TV game show "1 vs. 100" came on. I had never seen it before. Basically, a multiple choice question is asked. The lone player - the 1 - answers it, as does "the Mob" - the 100. If the 1 gets it right, they keep going. Any of the Mob that gets it wrong is knocked out of the game, and adds money to the prize pot (anywhere from $1k to $10k per wrong person). If the 1 outlasts all of the Mob, or quits, the 1 gets the pot. If the 1 misses a question, the surviving Mob splits up the pot between them.
Got all that? Okay.
Like "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire", the questions start out easy and get tougher as you go. Here was one of the questions that I saw:
Here was a tougher one:
It's always tougher onstage in front of the lights. But boy, I'd like to try out for that show.
Saturday, I got to work overtime and extra hour. No big deal, I've done it before and don't mind.
The drag THIS time was that we started at the bar an hour EARLIER - at 8pm - because this was the club's Christmas party.
I got about a 40 min cat nap and drank a lot of coffee. It worked out well, because we were crowded and did some good rockin'. Nothing quite like playing and singing songs you love to get the adrenaline flowing.
Unless you have apnea. Then all bets are off.
Sunday we opened early because someone reserved a party for a time that was before we opened. And then the party was a no-show. Well, it happens that way sometimes.
I had thought about watching Casino Royale, but I came home and decided to stay in...which turned out to be a good choice, since it did some more raining.
Such was my weekend. Sometimes, lack of excitement can be just as welcome.
And now, in the Tunes You Forget You Loved Dept.:
I love YouTube.
And I love you all, too.
Well, most of you. And not all in the same way.
And on that ambiguous note...
...be seeing you.
