Made the scene

Seeing as how I have tomorrow off work, due to my broken arm, I went to Keegan's Pub this evening for Trivia Nite.
I'd wanted to do the same last week, but I was visiting my folks last week.

I'm glad I went, though my team did no win. I ran into Hammerswing 75 and another blogger who I didn't know well, unfortunately. I think his blog is Residual Forces.
I was quickly teamed with Flash and Wog. We got very close to 50% right, and I would readily credit my teammates for most of the correct answers.
It was also good to finally make the acquaintance of EckerNet.

When I'd left the house, I had forgotten about Trivia Nite. When I'd set out of doors about a quarter before 8, I'd thought I was merely going to a local restaurant for dinner. I'd let my cat outside and thought I'd be back in less than an hour to let her back inside. For some reason, I remembered today was Thursday, and hence Trivis Nite.

Getting home a little over three hours later, Zazu is fine. She'd developed a monstrous appetite. And I satisfied mine with Guinness Steak Pie, a few extra stouts and some friendly conversation.

I'm glad I went. Have you read Al Gore's speech yet? In it, he bemoans the demise of democracy, due in part to the effects of television. Well, John Stewart is on David Letterman as I write this. And I want to say that democracy is in fine health, Al Gore is hilarious comedy, Letterman is pathetic and John Stewart takes himself too seriously to be funny.

    It was good to see you. Residual Forces is Andy. He's a nice guy.

    The TV guy's name is JON Stewart.

    John Stewart is some other guy.
