I am in New Orleans. Half Ironman is on Sunday. It hailed two days ago here and the weather is currently awful. I already made the internal decision that I will only do the run if they cancel the swim. No need to kill myself on the bike in the rain if it’s not the full 70.3 miles.
Work has been wearily uneventful . Calm before a storm I am sure
The staff especially Pinky did a great job participating in the wrestling event. Theses videos don’t do the event justice
Heading to Denver today! 10 year anniversary! I know Pinky will throw a great party tomorrow.
Last night I was out with two new friends. One is a dermatologist and the other runs a Title Insurance company. This was the conversation from the insurance woman to the dermatologist. ” I think you need to fix Lil’s face. She needs fillers in her chin, around her mouth, beneath her eyes and something for her lips.” DUDE I LIKE MY FACE!! ” Lil good genes only last so long. ”
I am thinking that we need to try this challenge #FoodBankNYCChallenge. One person on food stamps has the equivalent of $29 per week to live on. After the Half Ironman I want to see if Jackson and I can live in a healthy way on this challenge.
Kevin, Daniel , and Lee got Jeff’d this morning . The traditional explanation for Jeff’d is when he calls ( usually very early morning ) and you do not respond within an hour of his call . Immediately he puts you on his Shit list and it takes months to get off. There is an alternate definition of being Jeff’d ; that’s when he calls me and tells me that someone didn’t do something properly ( stretching the truth a tad). This morning he Jeff’d Kevin and Daniel about closing accounts . Then snuck in a ” when is Lee going to get back to work ?” ( Lee just had surgery yesterday ) . I laughed this morning because I secretly Love Jeff doing this . It means grumpy . And he is very productive while grumpy . He and I had a long term health care call today . Low and behold if we are not hang glider’s or diving with sharks hoping for an attack , it appears we are all too young to purchase long term health care.
Just shipped my bike and Kevin’s bike for next weekend’s Half Ironman in New Orleans. Why do I do this to myself ? Jackson was very amused when I had my tire changing lesson . ” Jackson would you like to watch your mother fail miserably at changing a tire? ” his response ” yes I would love to.” If I get a flat tire I am screwed . I figure I will be so close to the time disqualification even without a flat tire so I might as well just walk to the finish line and go to the beer tent .
Wonderful night with Dinesti tonight. We went to this restaurant called ” Top of the Market”. ( San Diego). The location was awesome. The restaurant looks over the San Diego bay and the USS Midway aircraft carrier. Pretty cool!!! But the food was about as mediocre as it comes. Totally unimpressed.
We are having a corporate only meeting in San Diego at the end of the month. Lee and I have been planning the new Corporate photo. It is awesome. But They will freak a tad when they find out what ALL of us have to do for it. Yes including me!
Austin bar rocking last night. ” Lil night before Easter most of the people go to bed early so they can go to church on Sunday.” ( This was in reference to the NYC bar’s numbers). Really ? NYers are going to bed early so they can go to church for Easter. I lived in NY for 3o something years. I don’t recall this mass pilgrimage to church on Easter Sunday in NYC.
Daniel sent out an email describing what he calls Kevining in response to the Lil Spill entitled ” She Daniel’d the San Antonio floor”. Kevining is falling asleep while standing after getting drunk. Or tripping and having a contusion which you buy a $200 hat to camouflage , after getting drunk. If you do both then you have done a ” FULL KEVIN”.
I made the best lamb tonight. Restaurant caliber! One day when I find a man that can provide for himself , looks like Channing Tatum, is well endowed , loves me, and is MUTE I will make him an excellent wife.
Nice check from New Orleans. Today they are definitely my favorite bar!!
Oh god San Antonio was the troubled bar today. Our bar was supposedly leaking onto the ceiling of the restaurant below us. Marsha got a quickie fix through friends. This morning when I saw the log, my first instinct was ” Why didn’t Kevin tell me about this?” Well Kevin didn’t tell me because he didn’t know. I was expecting him to freak out. He actually sounded calm when I spoke to him. He told me that he was doing the research to make sure that the work done wasn’t just a bandaid but a real fix. In the Coyote Ugly World no one gets Kevin’s wrath but me. He will be so kind to everyone then he will immediately call me up ” They just Danieled the plumbing. I am so pissed.” In our world Danieling something means getting it done super cheap but having to redo it multiple times because it was done so cheaply. Let me guess when I post this Kevin will call ” take that post down. “
Dinesti is upset that I will hurt people’s feelings . Fine all the military wives are gorgeous and nice. ( which they were nice ).
Bars are all over the place this weekend in regards to numbers. I am on a mission to get the OKC staff in a better place. Trying to find a half marathon for them to enter with me. Such nice girls but they need boot camp. Amber should have them on restrictions.
I haven’t even read last night’s logs. My dress was awesome for the military ball. But the ball was a bit boring. A lot of speeches. Full sit down meal.Small talk.. Blah, blah This is a horrible observation and yet another thing to come to haunt me when I get to the pearly gates but ” why do officers have unattractive wives? ” I looked around the room and there were decent looking officers with overweight wives. I know, who the fuck am I to judge? But I wasn’t the only one to notice. Is it about being deployed and feeling more secure that the unattractive wife will be honorable waiting at home? Not sure
This is on 2nd ave right off of St. Marks ( 8th St). The NYC bar is on 1st Ave between 9th and 10th. So scary. It’s just amazing that there weren’t more fatalities .
On a good note, I am going to the Marine Corp Ball ( maybe its not called that I am not sure but it’s a military ball) tomorrow night on Coronado. FUN!!
