South x Southwest is rocking. Go Austin ! Heading to San Diego today to work on an additional location for Samurai Pie!!
PAST LIL SPILLS
A date came to pick me up at my apartment the other day. Jackson answered the door and introduced himself. He then went into the most unusual grilling session I have ever witnessed.
Jackson: If you could teleport anywhere in the world whenever you wanted but you had to choose 1 location that could never change, where would it be?
Date: My moms
Jackson: Are you religious? If you believe in heaven and hell regardless of what the religious implications are , what would your heaven look like and what would your hell look like?
Jackson: What was the wildest thing you did when you were 14?
Date: Cut school with my friends.
Jackson: What was the worst punishment you ever got when you were 14?
Date: Getting caught by my mom cutting school and getting whipped by her in front of my friends.
Jackson: Do you enjoy the sciences? If so , please elaborate .
This was hysterical. I could see the beads of sweat canvassing my date’s forehead . A priceless moment.
Bam Wrestlemania at the Denver anniversary party! Awesome.
Fun day at the New Orleans anniversary party. The belly dancers were awesome.
Even my friend Kaye preformed.
Hate hearing about all the violence in the Ukraine. The Kiev bar reopened but it’s struggling. A complete mess over there.
On a positive note the Key West bar is kicking it into high gear! I love to see those numbers.
New Orleans anniversary party is on Sunday. That’s always a two day hangover. I got nothing else. I am emotionally ready to move to SD. First week of June and Jackson and I will be there.
Daniel called today.. ” blah blah NY, Blah blah Key West, blah blah, Austin… ” He’s like the grim reaper. ” Lil I will be down in Keywest the second week of spring break. I will sleep on the floor at our old head of security’s apartment.” Ok just know that when i go there I will stay in a nice cozy hotel.
Chantel and I are starting to freak about the Olympic distance triathlon on March 30th. Going to a chiropractor tomorrow because half my body is completely cramping up every time I run. May be time to join the yoga olympics and give up all this craziness.
Last day of Mardi Gras!!! I have been going to the New Orleans bar in the morning because I get trapped with traffic if I go when the parades are rolling. The bar has been doing alright but not what I was hoping. Yesterday was one of the better days which was nice for Lundigras.
Let’s go San Diego . Today there is a huge Mardi Gras celebration in the Gas Lamp district! Bam
One month to get the Denver girls into Jello Wrestling shape! Time to shed the winter pounds.
Holy crap should I take a pedicab to the french quarter today? All I want to do is go to my bar and have a few beers. It’s a complete hassle to get there because you can’t drive with all the parades rolling. ” Universe I want a delicious beer at my bar!”
San Antonio and San Diego rocked last night. New Orleans did alright but I was hoping for higher numbers.
My life is going to hell in a hand basket. I need a personal life pronto this is f ridiculous.
I can’t install the “small slotted cup” into my kinetic trainer. I just wrote the company an email. ” I know I may be an idiot but I have to assume other customers are idiots too. Why didn’t you install this cup in the factory?”
Ok I will shower and walk to my bar 3 miles away. Not far but still a hassle .
I sent Lee to Key West to bring some life through art to the bar. Key West has live roosters walking all over the island so he decided to paint a rooster as a side addition to the skin board art he also designed. This rooster looks incredible. I was laughing so hard when he called me yesterday. ” Lil this has taken me 17 hours. 8 hours to create the design and lay it out and 9 hours to actually paint it. WTF.” I love it!!!
Mardi Gras kicks off with the New Orleans bar opened 24 hours a day for the next 5 days! bam
In our company everyone knows of Daniel as extremely cheap. Jazz priced out some extra security cameras to provide more surveillance before mardi gras. She texted both of us asking permission. I said yes. 4 hours later Daniel said No because he can do it much cheaper. ” Daniel, We are about to go into our busiest week of the year. You are actually on vacation right now in Colorado so you can’t come here to do it. And don’t you think factoring in the airfare for your ticket it is actually cheaper to put the cameras in now?”
” Daniel , I will already apologize because I sent Lee down to redecorate the Key West bar and you know nothing Lee does is cheap.”
Bars are on fire now!!
I am having my guy moment. I ordered custom rims for my car. It took 8 weeks for them to get made but today they are finally getting placed on my car . Not only am I super excited but I feel this need to wear a cocktail dress so I look good when I get into my car.
” Please universe let all this spending stop! Give me a little of Daniel’s cheap genes. Between the new house and the rims I have spent a fortune.” MIDLIFE crisis please stop. The shopping and The Half Ironman training are taking over my life. Thank god my kid keeps me grounded. By the way he got his dad’s cheap gene so thankfully I don’t have that to worry about.
Did I report that I sat next to Lisa Nicholls , the motivational speaker, on the plane.
You are F kidding me!! How the fuck did the new audio system jump in price from $5000 to $10,000 by adding one freaking speaker? This is an outrage!! The bars rocked this weekend but I have woken up to many negative issues today. 1. Milwaukee, blah, 2. Exhusband bitching about the New Orleans building. 3. Lee in Key West. ” why the hell is the lighting so bad? Why did someone authorize this?” 4. Milwaukee again. 5. Going to round out the day with a Vegas conference call. Oh fuck I am late for it! crap
This is what you learn when managers live at your house. Especially male managers. 1. They will leave food in the fridge for months without throwing it out. 2. They lie straight in the face of my wonderful assistant and pretend they will dispose of the cardboard boxes and also pretend they will take some boxes to good will. 3. They don’t use sheets to create less laundry.
The cool personal stuff I just learned is Mac’s obsession with Air Jordans. He has probably 50 pairs that he purchases on line as a collector. He will wait until 6 am to purchase a rereleased vintage pair. He takes out the tissue paper because it yellows the sneakers and he will keep some pairs in the freezer. Interesting
The Kiev bar had to close yesterday because all the riots. The staff isn’t safe riding the subway or simply leaving their house. It’s such a horrible situation.
Bam Denver kicked ass last night!! We have a program on our phones that let us view the sales for each bar. At about ten o’clock West coast time San Antonio was slightly in the lead with Denver and NY following. We sent a text to Marsha ( San Antonio GM) and Mac ( San Diego GM) and told them that Denver was going to crush them. Marsha is very competitive so I know she tried to push the staff a bit harder. Within 1 hour Denver had blown by all the bars. Awesome!!!
Daniel , Tommy and I drinking wine at my new house last night. Fun
