I worked from 8am-5pm today. The Saturday Brunch shift has been a rare one for me to work in the three years plus that I've worked at the restaurant, so I can't say if today was a strange one or not. But it felt like it. There was no one from 8-10:30, then a couple tables came in before 12:30, and then it was steady from about one o'clock until five. What felt like it was going to be a long day without much money turned out to be a long day with about $75. Not terrible, I suppose, and $75 closer to paying my car off and thus $75 closer to quitting the second job. I've decided that's what I'm waiting for, which is pretty much what I've always been waiting for.
I made some tentative plans to get together with some friends in Fells Point tonight, but I was tired when I talked with them, and they didn't call back, which was fine. I guess I felt like just sitting around. I've been pretty wiped out lately. Watching the game without sound in a smoky bar rather than in my relaxing living room wouldn't have been any more fun, especially since I wouldn't have been with other Tigers fans. On Thursday, when the Tigers come to Baltimore for a 4:05 game, I'll be attending with people from the Detroit Tigers Internet Discussion Board, so that should be pretty fun.
In other news, the Tigers followed up their 17-2 victory yesterday against the Orioles with a 2-0 victory today. It's so nice to sit back on the couch and watch the games for a change rather than sit at the computer.
I really want to see Half Nelson, and am tossing around the idea of going to a midnight show tonight at The Charles. However, I might be too tired. I have Inside Man waiting downstairs to be watched, and I've wanted to watch that for a while now and finally got it in the mail today.
Tonight would be a great night to have a girlfriend. However, considering that the last attractive young female teacher at the school that I thought I might have a chance with - after striking out with the several, as they all had significant others - had a diamond ring on, I have come to the conclusion that there really aren't any single women in Baltimore anymore. And you know that first date from a few weeks back? The one that went so well? Uh, there's this, uh, "trip to Alaska" and I'm beginning to think that it was just an excuse.
