Tuesday Oct 30 Aftermath of the karaoke fundraiser‏

I got a ride home with a friend and Primo stayed at the fundraiser, which was crazy because he was up past 4 a.m. the night before. I had thought there might be a possibility of [wxyz] if we both were home before 9, but he didn't get home until 11:30, when I had already been asleep for over an hour.

So no hanky panky.

Guess what? If Primo goes two nights without sleep and then has a beer or two or three, he feels really crummy the next day. He is no longer 16 years old.

Tonight, we have the candidate forum. I suspect he will be consuming a lot of caffeine between now and then.

I don't know how much money he raised last night. I know he paid his friend $100 to run the karaoke show and he bought a couple of pizzas. I know also that at least three people wrote checks, but the one I saw was for only $40. "Only" in the sense that $40 does not cover the cost of the show, not in the sense that that person was not generous. We are grateful for every donation. Every dollar someone gives Primo is a dollar he worked hard to earn and is a dollar he can't spend on someone else. 

I hope we at least broke even.
