The regulars turned up again and have been providing us with heckle free, genuine friendly audience. Long may it continue. I feel the show may be starting to grow legs now after all the work we have put into it. After our headliner, Alysia Wood, who stopped by from Seatle on a cross country tour, I again tried to advertise the "CarniColada". This is a drink designed by the bar staff for the show. At $5 it packs a punch that I am still feeling today. I am a beer drinker and I failed spectacularly in promoting a little pink drink with a dainty slice of lime. It is now my dream to hear of the CarniColada being mentioned on a TV documentary or News program. Such as..
"John Buckly, 34, allegedly consumed 15 CarniColada's before leaving the pub and making his way home on bicycle where he then murdered his wife and dog. Neighbours say he kept mostly to himself and enjoyed attending Comedy shows"
"The autopsy report showed that the victim had traces of semen in her rectum and cocaine deposits in her navel. This tells us that the last hours of her life was a drug fuelled sex session. Although her blood report showed that she had spent the early part of the evening drinking CarniColadas before she was picked up by a kinky murderous drug dealer".
And so on..
After the show, I packed up the equipment onto my trusty hand trolley and proceeded to stay late drinking with Jen Grant, Stacia, Alysia Wood, Rob Gordon and a few regulars. I walked home chatting to Rob about god knows what, struggled to my apartment and silently crept into bed beside my sleeping girlfriend Marisa.
I awoke this morning into a hangover hell. It was worth it though.
