[Mental note: I need a icon for karaoke/rockstar/rockin' out.]
RQ and I got there around eight and wolfed down some dinner. The place (My Way) started out busier than usual, and stayed busy all night. I think it was a combination of that and the different KJ (Kristal) that, uh, kept the song count down to some extent. Bill and Gayle (the people that own the karaoke company) were there as well. Did anyone else notice the sign on the door, mentioning some *other* karaoke group hosting there on Thursday nights?
I had fun, but was having an off night. Bill distracted me during my first song, and I didn't really remember the words to the second. Le sigh, woe is me. Next time!
And, as always, *please* mail me any corrections/additions/things I missed.
