1.1.2007!!!

So I survived. The restaurant had a set menu of $49.99 per person, with four courses and a free bottle of champagne per couple, so I did quite well too. At 11:00, I had two tables who were eating dessert and drinking their coffee, so I thought I would have been home by 12. But, they both ended up staying. Steph's boyfriend was there towards the end of the night, and at 11:57 both my tables had left. We told him to be in charge of telling us what time it was so we could drink some leftover champagne at midnight. (I had previously claimed a bottle and just drank right from it. I love when there are leftovers from tables, hahaha) A few minutes later we asked him what time it was and he said 12:01. Ooops. Sorta missed the midnight celebration of 2007. We were counting our tips at the center large table so I guess that is a fun thing to be doing to bring in the new year??

Also, in the past, Stephanie has been asked to sing for tables while they eat. Last night, there was a large party in the center of the restaurant who asked her to sing. She sang a song or two and they asked for MORE. She was like, oh come on people!.... So I went over and sang one of my MANY prepared audition songs. I'm an alto, she's a soprano. I'm LOUD. The entire restaurant gets quiet, and I'm thinking, GREAT. I finish and go to check on my other tables where I answer tons of questions about my dancing and singing background. I don't think it hurt my tips though, it only could have helped!!! There is a ice cream parlor by my shore house that has singing waitri, and it totally reminded me of that. Singing and bringing food is not foreign to me, but still kinda funny!!

I do sorta feel as if I have been hit by a mack truck though. Tomorrow I go back to my web design job from vacation which will be fun cause I love my job. I waitress again on Wednesday, I think. Supposedly Wednesday's are slow, so I'm not really looking forward to that, but I had 4 great nights in a row, so I don't mind taking one for the team and helping out. Today I just want to relax though. A while ago I promised my mom I would take off the current wallpaper in the dining room and paint the room. I thought I would be doing that on break, and now break is over and the wallpaper is still adhered to the wall. Maybe next weekend?? I also have some freelance webdesign work I need to do. That could be a goal for the day.

Have a happy and healthy 2007!!

Well I don't know about counting tips, but apparently there's some tradition that if you have a dollar in your hand at midnight on New Year's, you'll have good luck. So happy New Year!
