One of my former Austin bartenders, Esther has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. I am so sad to hear that. Gorgeous, beautiful, smart. My thoughts are with you Esther.Her picture is all over the walls of almost every Coyote in the world.

I am not traveling this week. Makes me feel lazy. Have to do massive amounts of paperwork for the state of Nevada. urgh. Last time I had to get my ex-inlaws to sign paperwork. I am dreading that. “please universe let the elapsed time of divorce be long enough so I don’t have to contact them.”
This weather is bringing me down. I am taking all calls in my pjs under the covers today. We need to redo bar in Key West. The back room is useless and I keep getting complaints about the mic.
When I was a kid, I would make myself a hot chocolate when I was feeling down. Perhaps I will do that now. I bet a little baileys will help with that too. LOL That involves getting out of my PJs to purchase the Baileys so that’s not happening.
On an up note, Mexico City is gearing to open in April!

I woke up this morning to two pictures from Mac. One showed Samurai Pie . Every Seat was taken with people enjoying our pizza. ( In fact we sold every single slice. Had to close when the dough ran out.) The other picture was the line down the block for Coyote Ugly San Diego. I couldn’t be happier with our performance.

Opening went incredibly well. The staff did an incredible job. Thanks to all the veteran girls and BMFs. Great job. The San Diego staff did great as well. I am really impressed by everyone. BAM SAMURAI PIE rocked!!! At one point there was a line to order pizza. I couldn’t be happier wityh how things went. My flight this morning was canceled. Mac and I hit the gym. Now I have to figure out how to get home to my little ( not so little boy).tnt

Woke up at 4 am because two various tv stations held their morning shows, in part, at the San Diego bar. Full face of makeup and hair before sunrise is unheard of in my world. But I think the 7 segments they did came out very well. Really good looking girls at this bar.
Kevin went to the hospital this morning after violently throwing up for hours last night. Now I just received an email from Jeff saying that he is violently ill. It’s crunch time right now I hope they get better.
The last few days get very emotional. The new girls are having breakdowns. Corporate staff are having breakdowns. And the plumbing is having breakdowns. But not me! I helped change the choreography of the chorus of TNT and it looks fantastic. Chantel taught the veteran girls the dance for the first time and I am giddy with excitement. I am like an idiot Savant. I can’t dance a lick but there is a part of my brain that is made to choreograph . Chantel is my medium. I have to do what I envision in my physically challenged way. Then I explain to her how it is supposed to look . Then she puts it all together to have my thoughts become movement. She is my personal dance medium.
Off to another meeting. Very little sleep in the last 5 days.
I am grateful today for Lee’s mother. She spend over 80 hours making this jean flag that we envisioned. This woman is very educated, kind, and a truly genuine person. She came up to me today and said ” Shit Lil I may need a drink after 80 hours on that flag.” LOL. Thank you so much.

This is my morning . I woke up after only sleeping 4 hours. I decided to make myself a coffee in my new house and sit outside . Mistake ! The door locked behind me. No phone no key. Well I introduced myself to my new neighbors wearing an oriental robe and fuzzy pink pig slippers. ( no I am not joking). The neighbors were very nice remarking on my slippers followed by the ” that limp is a runner’s limp. We can spot it from a mile away.” Two hours later Mac arrived and let me in the house. Long day today. Veteran girls coming in . We have our Coyote Clarity meeting tonight got our full San Diego staff. Need more coffee

I was upset with Jazz because there was no sign on the New Orleans bar rooting for Leslie, myself and the Kenner boxing club while we ran the Rock and Roll Half Marathon today.
Ok so my Garmin watch said I ran 13.21 in 2 hours 11 minutes. My Runtastic app said I did it in 2 hours and 13 minutes and the race results say I ran it in 2 hours and 16 minutes. I say bullshit!! I am thinking that maybe I stopped before the final chip timing mat and that’s why the race results seem slow. They put down 3-4 mats at the finish line. Perhaps I thought I was passed the final mat already. I guess I will have to go with the 2 hours and 13 minutes because its almost an average of the 3 varying times. I wanted so badly to do this in 2:10 minutes but I fell apart at mile 10. My right foot is killing me. The Kids from the boxing team did fantastic. 3 of them finished the half in under 1 hour and 40 minutes. They were flying. I finished the race within 6 minutes of 4 of them. I told Axel the coach that they need to step it up if a slow person like me can keep pace with them. LOL. So proud of Leslie. Her first half marathon and she did great!! OK off to catch a plane fro San Diego. I am hurting right now.

Leslie and I are sponsoring the Kenner Boxing Club to run in the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. We got them signed up today. What a nice group of kids. They are so excited . They have never done 13 miles before but Axel, their coach, said their normal run is around 5 or 6 miles. I am sure they will be passing me by early in the race. As long as everyone finishes it’s a victory.
Crazy day in Coyote land. A million calls today. Very hectic.
