Went to the San Diego bar tonight to watch the Saints Game. ( game was horrific). I was carded by 3 people. While I am glad they are doing their job I said to Dinesti ” part of their job is to know the history of the bar. Do I really need to point at my picture on the wall for them to have some recognition? ” I am simply too old to get ID’d at one of the bars. On a good note the service was really great. All my friends have a wonderful time.
Saints: This is what happens to a team when they have to give all their money to a quarterback. Drew is a hall of fame quarterback but he’s only one player. We have lost so many key players this year. URGH He simply can’t have a bad game. the whole team crumbles.

This is hysterical. The Hot Crazy Matrix. Mike ( triathlon training partner) showed me this and claimed that from his speaking with my friends I cluster in the danger zone or wife zone. ( I personally think I am in the Fun Zone.)

Thank you universe for having such a great group of people around me for the Coyote Ugly Manager’s Seminar. Daniel has really put together an incredible learning presentation. So Nice to have our Russian licensees here. Really I am so happy to be surrounded with such good, kind, hard working people.
I heard some great stories yesterday. At the Kiev Bar which unfortunately is in a war torn country the BMF’s have to check weapons at the door. Some guy actually came in and checked a live grenade. I can’t imagine having to hold a grenade for someone but also give it back to the person once they are finished drinking. Just crazy. Still a bit rough around the edges from the Half Ironman. I was afraid to ride a bike before this . Now my bike will sit in the kinetic trainer for a long time!

Heading to Cancun today for the Manager’s Seminar.
I am outraged. On the race results they don’t have my run listed. While It may not be stellar results. I fucking finished the damn race!!!
The proof is my Suunto watch results!!! ( don’t judge my knee is the size of a watermelon )

Finished Cozumel Half Ironman. Wasn’t pretty and right now every inch from the knee down hurts but I finished. Thanks to Chantel and Kevin for making sure I finished in the allotted time. The standup paddleboarding yoga years may be coming soon. To the cyclist who plowed into me today and fucked up my leg. ” Learn how to fucking swim so your not so far behind in the bike!” I know that is mean I am sorry. ( not to him but to the universe.)
Tomorrow Manager’s seminar in Cancun. Pretty beat up right now while they are all in Cancun boozing it up.lol

There is no turning back now. Both Chantel are I are heading to Cozumel for the Half Ironman on Sunday. I received an email saying that my bike is already there.I am freaking out a tad bit. I am in pretty good shape but perhaps not quite at half ironman shape. My body is tired. Everyday I receive training instructions from my new coach. ” do 3 hours on the bike trainer doing drills at 80 percent power then run an easy 3 miles. Swim an hour and a half mid day.” dude I have to work. Thank god this week is an easy week before the actual event. A lot of preparation goes into this. We are supposed to eat 700 calories before the race. During the bike you are supposed to ingest 200 calories per hour on the bike. Then another 200 on the run. These cyclists bring full meals and have pockets in their shirts. I am scared to take my hands off the handlebars. I won’t take them off for even a second. So I bought a camel bak and I am mixing a calorie drink in the water during the ride. So much work. Just get me through this so the mexican seminar/vacation can begin.

” Daniel, all these people are poking me on Facebook. What does that mean? You know I hate talking to people.” His response ” Just ignore them.” OK that’s what I planned on doing.
One of our long standing investors texted me about a month ago upset that the San Diego bar wasn’t making more money. I was shocked because SD has been rocking since the beginning. ( We did go over budget but after 2 months that was corrected). Well I just received the latest P and L’s for all the bars, which by the way were Fucking Awesome, and I texted him. ” When you receive your dividends I expect a formal apology.” Let the groveling begin!!! He texted back asking if the apology was a hands and knees type? Hmm I will have to think about that. Bam the bars rocked!!!

Nashville is rocking on the weekends and last night San Diego and San Antonio hit really big numbers. Great
So last night there was a power outage in SD. I very rarely watch regular tv but last week I had been watching E to hear about Joan River’s death. Last night I was sleeping when the power came on and the tv started blasting ” Keeping up with the Kardashians” came on. I had taken the batteries out of the remote control to put in a flashlight. OMG I was scrambling to get the remote working to shut off the tv. ( I couldn’t find manual off switch). Frightening. Am I nuts but did Kim K get way too much botox or plastic surgery? She was so beautiful and now I think she is the least pretty sister. I can only imagine the pressure to always look good and perhaps not realizing that you went too far. Also Is it crazy that I think Sean Peyton got botox?
I am cranky. No hot water. Waiting for a repairman to come to my house. Next week Manager’s seminar in Cancun!

What a fucking day. My phone has been screwed up for a week now. I have tried to wait for the iPhone 6 to come out before I purchased a new one. Well today all hell broke loose. I had a two hour conference call I had to borrow a phone for the call.
One of our valued employees put in her resignation. Daniel was emailing me ” please call her.” I Couldn’t , my phone was frozen so I had to get him to her call me. Today was just “that day”. What could go wrong did go wrong. Dog peed on my rug. Thought I had a meeting showed up and waited . After an hour I figured out it was actually scheduled for next week. Just one of those days.
I spent one and a half hours at the ATT Store. Good thing was that I was eligible for a new phone. I found out that jackson was as well. When I got home I told Jackson that for his birthday or Christmas I would gift him my new phone and I would get the new iPhone 6. His response was with a note of sheer horror. ” mom I was so embarrassed last year when you and dad gave me a new phone. Please I do not want a current model. Also when you get me a car I want the cheapest used car you can find. Please mom! ” well son don’t worry since you are helping to pay for your car when you get your license. According to your current pace of savings you will be getting the cheapest car out there!
Now on the surface people would say ” wow you are raising him right. What a good thoughtful kid.” That’s great until I get the ” you are so showy. Why do you need this artwork in the house when a plain picture would be just fine. Why do you buy so many shoes? It’s so wasteful.” I used to listen and try to put value on my need to have a pretty house. Now I find my response is simple ” my money. My house. I will do what I want .” Urgh

This goes either way 1. How do I know Kevin is gay? or 2. How do I know Kevin is devoted to his girlfriend? ( you decide). Answer: He finishes working at the SD bar and doesn’t even mention the girls’ photoshoot. When pressed he said ” yeah a good staff.”
Thank You San Antonio and Denver for being the only bars this week that are doing any business. Painful
Kevin has been biking and running with me. It’s like boot camp out here. Today we biked Fiesta Island and he showed up back at the car all scraped up. Both arms , shoulders, ass. Thank god he had his helmet on. Jackson, Kevin, and I were eating dinner then watching tv . Kevin goes to sit on the couch ” dude if you get blood on my new couch I will kill you!”
Did I already introduce our new VP of global franchising? Justin starts in a few weeks. I am very excited.
