I will never go out drinking with Jeremy ( Torches printing) and Lauren ( San Antonio dance captain) again. I am at the airport feeling as close to death as I can imagine. Why can’t I be smart like Chantel and barely drink? ” Jameson, really ? For as dumb as I was yesterday, I have Lost so many brain cells I can barely dress myself ” dumbass . Urgh but on a positive note , the Vegas staff was so great yesterday .

I got in late last night met Chantel and Lauren and headed for Coyote Ugly Vegas for a short time. We are heading there early today because we need to tweak the dances since they dance on a platform versus a long bar. I am staying at The Hotel which is part of Mandalay Bay. I went to the gym this morning and two guys came over to me, both separately, and said ” great workout.” On both occasions I was wearing my headphones peering over my shoulders to see if perhaps they were speaking to someone else . With my ankle still fucked up my workout is limited. Then I realized ” oh it’s the new sport bra . The girls must be looking good ”
San Antonio is steam rolling. The Coyote Ugly Whisky is selling like hit cakes! Bam!
Today I am signing up Kevin, Chantel, Jackson and myself for the New Orleans Triathalon. It’s May 26th. We have 1 month to train. Not sure if doing the breast stroke the whole way is acceptable so I am figuring that I need to learn to swim better. Jackson is going to kill me fir signing him up, but so be it.
Congrats to Dynesti and Kahlia they joined our Tough Mudder team for Lake Tahoe! Awesome

I am reading for the first time the magazine Car and Driver. ( long time at the airport). This writer John Phillips is hysterical. An excerpt from The article ” The Case for Convertibles”: “Like syphilis, convertibles have been known to cause insanity among automotive engineers …. Not even Ralph Lauren said what this needs is a $1.985,000 grand sport no top….” I love this guy. No real idea of what he’s talking about. I have heard of the cars but no clue about torque etc. I now put him on my favorites list.
Perhaps one day my flight may take off.

If there are apps on how many calories you burn or how many hours you sleep there must be one for how many hours you spend at airports? I arrived at the airport at 10:10 am for my 11:25 am flight to Vegas via Memphis. I boarded the plane then we sat . Then we had to de board the plane and then we sat. Now my flight is at 6 pm tonight. Really out of sheer curiosity I would love to know how many hours I spend at the various airports ? Damn I booked Gallaghers tonight for Chantel, Lauren and myself . Now it looks like they will be eating a delicious dinner and I will only arrive for a post dinner drink and head to Coyote around 10. C’est la Vie

George Jones died. Some of my fondest memories in NYC are of hitting seedy bars , friends in tow, and George Jones playing in the background. I even learned how to two step to some of his slow songs. RIP

Yesterday I sent a company wide email asking if anyone wanted to join us for the Tough Mudder event in Lake Tahoe this summer . How curious that the interested managers are women. Nashville has quite a few girls wanting to participate. NY as well. Should be a lot of fun .
Refocusing today. I preface this story with, my son is very bright and has an incredibly strong vocabulary. Yesterday we went running together . Afterwards I asked if he wanted to walk and get ice cream. His response ” mom I had over cream one day this week already . I don’t want to be a fat ass.” Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Mom I forgot something at home.
I know the internal conversation was this ; does he really need it ? Do I show up at school knowing he will be mortified ?
Thank God you didn’t show up! The windows don’t open wide enough for me to jump out.
That’s love my son

Pleasant visit to the orthopedic surgeon. ” so let me guess Miss Lovell, you ran another race and think you broke something else?” In fact yes. Well low and behold I broke the sesamoid bone in my left foot. Identical to my right foot. And tore ligaments in my ankle. He said that this is not a new break. To be honest I felt it before I ran the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. ” I love runners. They are so stupid that they keep on running on broken bones and torn ligaments. Thanks for being part of the group that keeps me in business.” Lol
My close friends say ” Lil you are so fucking tough that you ran a half marathon and the tough Mudder with two broken feet.”
Non friends and my mother ” you’re an idiot”

I was driving down the road and I happened to pass a man jogging. He was shirtless. Full 12 pack . Definitely a car stopping body. But when I passed directly in front of him I realized that he looked almost elderly in the face. Cenegenics? I always found the Cenegenics ads creepy.
Los Angeles is starting to steam roll . Very positive . It’s a beautiful day in New Orleans. I have a doctors appointment with the orthopedic surgeon for my feet. Mentally preparing for the comments. ” they don’t raise them too bright up North” ” so you think it’s wise to run on a broken foot and another possible broken foot. If you were a horse we would take you round back and shoot you.”
Bam feeling good today

Heading to Memphis for the anniversary party. This one is going to be awesome. Miss Judith started the tradition of incredible anniversaries , then Ernie, now Mac is going to bring the party to another level. Very excited.
Yesterday my son, his friend Gabe and I had such a great night. We joked, ate yogurt, watched crazy ninja YouTube videos. If we end up moving to San Diego I have to make sure Gabe stays close with us. I have pictures of the two of them from the early age of 4. Yesterday I was watching them while they were walking around Game Stop. At 13 Jackson is 5’3 and Gabe is about 5’4. Gabe went to super cuts and the woman butchered his hair. So in 70 degree heat he was wearing a skull cap. The juxtaposition to this is Jackson with hair as long as mine. Looking at the two of them chatting and walking I was thinking ” wonder if people see teenage thugs or just regular teenagers? ” lol

captured! AT 19 you know the difference between right and wrong. Why was killing the route they chose? It’s very patriotic to see that the bomber was captured. http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/19/17823265-we-got-him-boston-bombing-suspect-captured-alive?lite
I met Katie at the bar at The Hotel Monteleone tonight. Ends up that Travis A former BMF and manager was bartending. We had a ball! He was singing and having fun. He exemplified the Travis we always loved. About an hour into our stay a guy sits next to me and starts chatting . He has a splint on his arm while I have a bandage around my ankle. He asks ” what did you do?” ” Oh I sprained my ankle running the Tough Mudder.” Of Course I then ask about his injury. His response ” I ate a whole pot brownie, decided it was a good idea to buy a skateboard and fell off the skateboard.” OK! I thought the lesson of his story would of been ” don”t eat or smoke pot”. But in his mind the lesson was ” dont’ eat a whole pot brownie only eat half.” Pathetic and funny all at the same time.

Yesterday the judge allowed me to leave early so I could fly home and retrieve Jackson from school. Last night all of the current and former employees that were so nice to testify in our case sent me a group picture from the Nashville bar.

Who would think that a week spent defending myself and my company in a court of law would be so powerfully positive . My inner strength and feeling of gratitude is at an all time high. Wow I am awed at the commitment and kindness of all the various staffs from around the country ( and world) . From one Mother Fucking Powerhouse to another, you guys Rock!! Thank you!

I am bruised from head to toe from the Tough Mudder. This week I have had to wear suit pants or opaque tights to cover all the bruises and cuts on my legs and then a sweater to cover all the bruises and scratches on my arms. Today I was allowed to leave a day early to see my son. At the airport I went for the express pedi. The woman rolled up my pants ” ma’am are you alright ?” I don’t know if she thought someone beat the crap out of me or if I had a disease. Oh well all worth it

Feeling strong and super happy today. I want to thank Dynasty’s mom. She said a prayer for us yesterday . How sweet . I am not religious but I love the emotion and kindness sent in that beautiful gesture. And Kahlia from Nashville made my night . She came to me last night and said that she has three kids and her job at Coyote Ugly Nashville provides for their lives. ” Kahlia , you are a true asset to the Nashville bar and your kids!”
Between my son and all these good positive people around me, I am going to Rock today ! We all will!

I think they just arrested someone for the Boston Marathon bombing. An event so full of health and positivity turned so negative . So sad.
We are in Nashville on a court case. One of our lawyers has run the Ragnar relay,done marathons and has don’t held marathons. Whether he knows it or not he will be on our team. On a side note someone from his firm was running the Boston marathon . Thank God they are safe

Memphis rocked this weekend. I will be in Memphis on Sunday for the anniversary party. The Memphis anniversary party is always very fun. Need to catch up on my work emails and then heading to Nashville. Need to do something special with Jackson because I have taken too many trips. I will figure out something awesome for this Saturday.
After the Tough Mudder Kevin came up to me and said ” Lil you may have found your calling. I want you to be on my team for the relay race from Miami to Key West.” Wow coming from Kevin who does marathons, I felt very appreciative. So the series is called the Ragnar Relay. You have either a team of 11 or a team of 6 ( doing two legs versus one). The route is approximately 200 miles. Each member of the team runs alone completing a leg then handing off to the next team member. You run day through night. Sounds fun. I want to get 9 members of the Key West bar to join us. Of course ending in a huge party at the Key West Coyote Ugly! Its not till February so everyone has plenty of time to train. I can’t believe I am already thinking about this race and another Tough Mudder considering I can barely walk from Saturday’s competition.

Omg!! We did it. Kevin, Mac, Lee and myself are offially Tough Mudders! 12 miles in Death Valley up and down canyons . The water obstacles were the worst. They keep the water at 36 degrees . There were between 10-12 water based obstacles . Horrible . Your legs would start to seize up. The obstacle called Artic Enema is where you submerge and swim under a wall. After I came up I felt panic . The water is murky and you cant tell if you have cleared the wall. The body starts to hyperventilate from the cold very quickly. Kevin, who was definitely the strongest competitor in our group had a horrible time with this one. After each water centered obstacle we would start running . My feet would cramp up for about a half of a mile until they would warm back up. Everyone was cramping from the intensely cold water. We all did so well and definitely persevered over fears. While climbing over a tall log Mac separated cartridge from his rib. He was in excruciating pain. Lee could barely walk after mile 7 because of knee issues. I rolled my ankle around mile 5 but I kept running . Kevin didn’t hurt himself but he was losing steam toward the end. Lee and Kevin did every obstacle. Mac missed one I think because he couldnt lift his arm at the obstacle where you dangle and shimmy using your hands to go across yet another pool of freezing water. I decided to avoid the obstacle that you swim under 3 barrels in a lake. While it may sound easy, we had done 2/3 water based obstacles back to back and in the 88 degree heat of the desert I felt like I had hyperthermia. I went into the lake with full intentions of doing the obstacle . Fear and cold got me. I simply couldn’t stay in that freezing water for one more minute. If I can toot my own horn, I was one of the better runners. Kevin is much faster then I am but I ran the most Without walking. But again everyone had their strengths and weaknesses.
Can’t wait to see the video. Both Lee and Kevin wore go pros to video the event. ( Kevin mounted his on a motorcycle helmet. He was miserable most of the day with this on.
By the way , there was cow pooh in every mud and water event. Mac definitely took in the most cow pooh. Lol oh and yes we had to belly crawl under electric wires.
What a great day . We all felt very accomplished.
Woke up in the middle of the night, my left ankle being twice the size of my right and my broken foot hurting. Won’t be working out for a few days. Another cool note. We were in the last starting line as the very last team to compete. We finished the event quicker then probably half the other teams! We rock

This is awesome. I am sitting alone at the hotel restaurant eating breakfast. Two men come in and sit at the table next to me. One of them is texting on his phone. The other one says ” stop texting and be present in the moment. Yeah, my wife says that to me every morning . It’s almost as annoying saying it as it is hearing it.” I swear its like sitting next to Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen. They must work for a pharmaceutical company because their following conversation involved trying to get their wives to take Prozac or Zoloft. The funnier of the two then said ” I fantasize about waking up at midnight and sneaking the sample pills into my wife’s coffee so she won’t know it.” The other guy was in total agreement. It is taking everything in me not to laugh.
Tough Mudder tomorrow! Bam

I love people who can laugh at themselves. My Key West head bartender sent me a video of herself falling while dancing behind the bar. The managers took a clip from one of the security cameras. This is awesome. Christina you rock! So freaking funny!

Is this considered multitasking? Working and texting fat ass comments? Mac and I have been CC’d on texts back and forth from Lee and Kevin.
Kevin: ” couldn’t text I was bench pressing a school bus . Maybe one day I can bench press Lee’s fat ass.
Mac: ” I’ve just been hooking up with bigger women all in the name of competition.
Lee: Only took Kevin 4 hours to finish his diet of school bus cake, cement truck cake. Dude you have to stop watching cake boss.
Kevin: ” I’m thinking when we get to the arctic enema obstacle, Mac and I should hurl all 800 lbs of Lee. The displacement of water from his fat ass should be more then enough to splash out all of the water.
Lee: What’s too much is that turtle back you call a stomach. my iphone autocorrected to say stomachs. Even Siri knows your a fat ass.”
Guys we need to work. Lee just sent a photoshopped picture of a fat guy with Kevin’s face. Running while holding a hamburger. Nice job.
Leaving for Vegas tomorrow. Want to be good and rested for the Tough Mudder.Let’s do this shit!!
Oh Daniel kind of bested me on an inside joke. Damn, well played Mr. Huckaby. I need to up my game.

Sitting getting a pedicure because in my warped mind I feel like I need my feet to look nice for the Tough Mudder. Miss big professional dealing with so many bars so many issues and right now all I can think of is ” what color will be most inspirational to me on my toes for the Tough Mudder ? ” I am so girlie! Fucking running ruins your toe nails. I just looked down and my big toe is completely black and blue . Damn now I may need to change the color .

Key West, San Antonio, and OKC rocking on a Sunday night. Great job.
My son got my eyes and my butt. Yup the Colombian butt is the dominant gene. The kid is thin with a great shape for a young man. In fact he already has the V. Broad shoulders coming down to a thin waist. But No pants or shorts fit him. Once they get over his Butt they become tight. This morning he came into my room to show me the pants dilemma, I said ” you have the butt of a champion. we will have to buy new clothes.”
What will work have in store today. Katie needs help this week for French Quarterfest. Hopefully the bar will do well.

I was speaking to a friend who is a pilot. He spent a majority of his adult life piloting helicopters in the Army. We were speaking about women who are Inmate Groupies. Low and behold their are army pilot groupies as well. They are called Ruckerettes. I wonder what they call the bouncer groupies? Every bar has them. The girls who try to hang out close to the bouncers. I will have to ask one of our security guys.
Destin is kicking ass!

The Destin bar rocked last night! What a great space. It was an old stand alone building that housed a BBQ place. As a Coyote it has the feel of a roadhouse. Love it. Outside they have dueling mechanical bulls. Really cool layout. The girls were fabulous. You want motivation to lose weight, go to Destin. 99 % of the staff have washboard abs. I have a decent stomach but I woke up today thinking, I need to up my game.
Good Luck Destin, congrats. Heading home!!
( fun to see Chantel bartending most of the night. Haven’t seen her in action like that in a long time. Brought back memories)

” Leel ( lil) I wish I had patented the technology for a Yeti coola ( Cooler). ” ” Leel you could put your beer in that god damn coola for a week and it would never go Warm.” This is the conversation between Chantel, Schmitty ( one of the investors in the Destin bar) and myself. Of course Chantel chimed in. ” my husband tried to win a Yeti cooler through a radio contest.” I had absolutely no idea that this incredible cooler existed. I can make fun . In fact , most of America can make fun. But I believe in my heart that it will be the rednecks with the Yeti coolas that will survive after some apocalyptic event.
I texted my old boyfriend Trey immediately because in the past he would act as the translator in these situations .” Trey, they keep talking about Yeti coolers and that the name Angie is synonymous with white trash . Trey texted me immediately ” omg the Yeti cooler is the best. And Damnit ANGIE GET ME A GOD DAMN BEER.” I am always learning something in this business.
Sorry that I couldn’t make the Milwaukee anniversary. I feel horrible about that. But I couldn’t fit the Destin opening and the anniversary into the same couple of days.
Destin girls are very good looking and they have a fiddle player. Have to love that.
If the Yeti Cooler marketed a limited edition of the Mossy Oak Yeti Cooler there would be lines for days in front of Bass Pro Shop to get this cooler. It would be like the gas lines after Katrina. Damn I need to start red necking my thoughts to come up with something great!

We just received our official Tough Mudder start time and entry packet. Saturday April 13th, start time 11:20 am. Not sure how I feel about that. I do better in the morning . I hope the Death Valley sun doesn’t cause a problem . That’s right we are racing in Death Valley!
Kevin made our team name Coyote Killer. I was surprised because he is so vulgar most of the time . I was expecting The Ugly Enemas ( one obstacle is called the arctic enema) or Coyote Castration. So our team name is pretty tame by his standards. Lol
Something clicked today. Fuck it! I can do it! If I fall in ice water and get electricuted going through the various obstacles , so be it ! I can only imagine crying if I break my
Other foot or fall face first while running through fire . Perhaps a gaping wound . Actually now that I think about it, there are many things that might make me cry . But I am fucking finishing even if I am crying like a baby !
I will be in Destin tomorrow night . It’s only 5 hours from Nola and this will be my first time . Friday night will be my last drink before the Mudder.
Thanks Jeremy for making our Drifit TM Tshirts !

OKC and New Orleans had horrible nights last night. Painful .
The OKC manager’s log talked about ghosts in the bathrooms slamming down the toilet seats. Shit, even ghosts wouldn’t go in the OKC bathrooms! They are awful. They would haunt the upstairs or just veg on the gorgeous booths in OKC.
If there were really ghosts, why didn’t you do a haunted tour?” Lol always thinking of ways to generate business.
Headed to Destin Thursday for a Friday opening. Destin is a licensed Coyote Ugly Saloon. One of the owner’s Joanna can get wild. I need to eat a ton before trying to hang with her. Lol
