Happy Holidays and other statements to piss Bill O'Riley off...

yes kids, it's offically Christmas and Mr. Bartender is a tad bit intoxicated...surprise, surprise :)

Despite the annoying girl at the start of the night who felt it should be busier because "gay people don't have families to go to" (*sigh*) the bar crowd was slow tonight, but full of good peeps that managed to keep a smile on my face all night long.

Mrs. Jesus came in briefly to help get the night started off, but headed out early to prep for our Christmas celebrations the following day. Meanwhile, as he departed the sexiest and hippest of the gay blog crowd made their way in to say hello, under what I assume to be the recommendation of Mr. Show himself. With Chemistry Lad by his side they fought hard to claim the title of hottest couple of the night, and ended up tying with these boys . All four of these guys manage to send Mr. Bartender's heart all aflutter every time he sees them...

Also in attendance was the charming carl , headwound gymnest, Clickboo with his native Iowan turned New Yorker friend, and John from Beaverhausen with his man Jaime. John and Jaime unfortunately had family to entertain the next day so didn't get to stay out quiet as late as the rest - but it was great seeing them nonetheless....

Anyway, wanted to thank everyone who stopped in tonight for helping make the night so wonderful. I'm glad we could ring in Christmas together :)

On a side note, for Christmas this year I've thrown together a little mix CD to give to all my peeps along with their Christmas's a collection of all the mellow (aka - depressing) songs that's I'm kinda digging for one reason or another at the moment... the cover-song happy tracklisting is as follows:

01. Everything But The Girl - Single
02. Girlyman - This Is Me
03. Ben Folds - Side of the Road
04. Denison Witmer - East From West
05. Patty Griffin - Moon River
06. Neko Case - I Wish I Was the Moon
07. Dar Williams with Ani DiFranco - Comfortably Numb
08. Eric Himan - Holding Back The Years
09. Leona Naess - Christmas
10. Lucinda Williams - Sharp Cutting Wings (Songs to a Poet)
11. Nickel Creek - Why Should The Fire Die
12. Bob Mould - Days of Rain
13. Jeff Klein - The 19th Hole
14. Tegan and Sara - Divided
15. Aimee Mann - Video
16. Tristan Prettyman - Guest Check
17. Ben Harper - Mary
18. Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins - Melt Your Heart
19. Shelby Lynne - Rainy Night In Georgia

Let me know if any of y'all are interested in a copy....all i ask in return is that if you dig any of the stuff you hear that you go out and buy a cd or two and/or check these peeps out in concert next time they swing by town....

alright, mr. intoxicated bartender is gonna call it a night....hope you all out there in blogland are having a wonderful holiday....

Mr. Bartender intoxicated? I am shocked! You know the fact that for a lot of people she was right is more depressing than the statement, but it was still inappropriate. It's one of those things: we can say that shit, you can't.

I really should have only had the beer, but things worked out anyway...

Mr. Bartender once again wins the silent but fierce comptetition for best word shirt.

I'd be up for a CD, just let me hide the sharp objects and the Cure CDs. Merry Joyous non-denominational feast celebration.

Thanks so much for taking care of us on Saturday. We had a great time, both there and on Sunday, when we got to see you on the other side of the bar for a change.
