” sir , Princess needs to check the picture before you post it.” My friend Leslie calls me Princess because I am supposedly high maintenance . When I go to my bars people will ask to take pictures with me and I can’t stand when I look bad and the picture gets posted on Facebook. Really, is that high maintenance ? Excerpts from last night.
Young guy: ” Lil you are so hot I want to take you home. ”
Leslie ” princess , I think I know his mother .”
Young Guy: ” Lil what are you 33?”
Leslie ” princess , my son is as old as him.”
Me: ” dude he thinks I am 33, I love this guy.”
Hours later on Duvall St.
Leslie ” I want to go to Denny’s
Me: ” princess says NO Fucking Denny’s since you made me give up the young guy.”
Fun night last night. KW bar did well. Loved seeing all the traveling girls. Proud of my bars.
Tahnee, NY GM, just made my day. We were talking about how close the NY girls have remained for so many years. She then said ” I am thankful for Coyote everyday cause I have such great people around me.”
Well I am grateful that Tahnee reminded me of the beauty in our lives, everyday. I need to start the gratefuls again ! Ok I will do that 21 days straight gratefuls .
I am grateful for my old house . I officially don’t own it as of yesterday . That house was where my son grew up. Good memories .
I am about to be grateful for my boxing coach not showing up so I don’t ruin my manicure .
San Juan , so close!!! Cross fingers
Oh no my phone is ringing again. God the last two days Milwaukee has plagued me. Chantel is there helping the girls with the dances. She has verified alot of my impressions from the last time I was there. Hannah their head bartender is just being overworked. The list goes on. URGH!
I haven’t looked at the logs for two days. I need to get on point. We are having a managers’ seminar in Vegas next month. We are planning a lot of really great learning events. Even I am excited. I enjoy the lectures from outside people. We are always learning in this industry, which is why we are great!
Kevin ” I am better then you at everythig I do”
Me: ” that’s why your fat ass was behind me at the 1/2 marathon
Kevin ” Lil , you know I let you win. I can do a marathon without training after a night drinking.”
This is how our conversations typically go.
Today I recieved my blood panel results
Me: ” Kevin my doctor said that in 20 years he has only seen one patient with better blood work and that was Macky Shilstone”
Kevin: ” who the F is Macky and your doctor was just trying not to hurt your feelings and tell you that you are a fat ass.”
Me. ” I am close to super human. I am so much better then you. Inside and Out.”
Kevin: ” I will wipe the floor with you any day of the week.”
I have realized that the reason Kevin and I are constantly bickering is because we are the most pathetic people on the corporate staff. So while other people are with their spouses, on their boats, or in other ways enjoying themselves on their off time, we add on extra work,travel more for work, exercise more, and compete with each other in almost all facets of our lives.
San Juan is looking good!!!!! Buenos Noches mi Latino Guapo. Hot latin men! ( although from a young age my mother would say ” never date a latin man”. Her Colombian roots make it alright to say. Lol) I plan on saying that a lot when I head down there.
Should Kevin and I do The Manaslu Trail Race in Nepal? San Juan may put that race on hold. Buenas dia mi hombre guapo. ( I will use that one too)
What entitles someone to board early? Traveling with minors or medical assistance . I can’t even count how many times I have seen visually regular people board with no children and no apparent injuries . What is considered medical assistance ? Asthma ? Allergies ? Overweight ? Obviously wheelchairs IE mobility issues . (My flight was delayed so I am cranky and these are my thoughts ).
Connection was in Los Angeles. Pretty people boarding . Yeah pretty stupid. ” Ma’am it’s 95 degrees with 99% humidity perhaps dressing your infant in a Parka that matches your long sleeved tunic isn’t climatologically ( not sure if that’s a word) prudent .
I Blame the nutritionist . Last night at dinner with the potential landlord, Kevin, and myself we spoke for hours on our various nutritionist recommended diets. Kevin and landlord are doing a pretty generic diet. Less starch based carbs, more protein , less fat. Mine is similar but I am not allowed to eat fruits past a certain time of day or anything sugar derived and I need to add fat. ( last week my nutritionist told me to put butter on my steak ). Who the hell knew I ate so many fruits and this is totally fucking up my MMs in my hotel room habit ! Urgh cranky
I leave my new apartment this morning for a jog. As I jog around the corner I see police barricading all the cross streets. I had been told yesterday by a friend that my new apartment is close to Archie Mannings house. In my mind I was thinking ” wow they must be taking the Eli versus Peyton game very seriously to be protecting Archie like this.” As I continue jogging I realize that there are a lot of joggers on the street near me. I decide to follow everyone. Low and behold I cross a finish line. It appears that I ran the International School’s 5k for safety this morning. LOL
Bars sucked last night. Not horrific but nothing to write home about. Headed to Gas Lamp district tomorrow to check out a spot. Holla
We all received our Coyote Ugly Bikini Calendar in the mail. Kevin looked at October and said ” Really, we put her name as Juicy in the calendar?” That’s what everyone calls her and she never suggested anything different . He then asked Chantel and I if we have ever had a Coyote with the moniker ” Bubbles”? Off the top of my head I can’t recall anyone named Bubbles working for us. But right now there is a #100 wager between Kevin and myself. If there was a Bubbles, my bet is that she worked at the Nashville bar. He’s betting on Memphis.
San Antonio needs to get more creative. They have had two or three girls with the Nickname Red. ( Austin has as well). Come on! What about Ginger, Carrot, Roja, Fire, Blaze? Just a few off the top of my head.
6 am this morning . WTF is that sound coming from my car? ” hello roadside assistance “. So what started out as a bad day has turned positive. Shaman came and cleansed my new apartment ! Bam Have a new prospective deal in San Diego going smoothly Bam! Bonnie my dog passed the doggie day care intack . Bam! Got a loaner car that is nicer then my actual car . Bam! And I just got an appointment to cut my hair ” Bam.
Will’s dad ( New Orleans bouncer) passed away . So sorry.
Thanks to Kevin and Matthew for helping to move my remaining furniture that did not fit into my pod. I am mad at myself for acquiring so much junk.
So last night I made dinner for Jackson and Kevin. ( roasted lamb. It was delicious). Jackson said that he was worried about my interview with a school in San Diego that he is applying to. A few hours later I looked over at Kevin and said ” Isn’t my son so gorgeous.” ” Mom that’s why you are going to screw up the interview !” OK Jackson, I will keep my love for you at bay during the interview and I will try not to curse.” Shouldn’t a mother express verbally their love for their child? Plus Jackson was having a fabulous hair day, can’t I remark on that?”
Managers seminar in Vegas this year!! Holla
Twelve years ago I was living in NY watching tv and waiting for a call from Jeff, our Coyote Ugly lawyer, who had his office in the World Trade Center. It was Hours of waiting and calls back and forth from his wife but eventually we found out he was safe. Against the advice of fellow office mates, Jeff walked down 100 flights of stairs to safety right before the towers collapased. He has told me some heart wrentching stories, in fact my son did a report on his experience for school last year. But the one moment of conversation that sticks in my mind is during the call he made to me that day: ” Yeah I am safe. I was trying to walk to the bar and get some drinks but I was herded back to Grand Central.” I will never forget that. Even in tragedy, he was able to make a joke. ( even though I am sure he did want to hit the NY Coyote and get a drink). A sad day but also a triumphant day !
Hot damn today has been a good work day. We are closing in on a space in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We have a new connection at NASCAR thanks to Jeremy. Everyone seems to love the new 2014 calendars. And the bonus was that I did not fall off my bike with the clip in pedals. ” holla!
Ben ( triathlon coach) am I the most uncoordinated client that you have?” I expected the kind ” Lil you are not uncoordinated .” What I got was ” you are the second most uncoordinated client I have.” Ok at least I am not the worst.
So I hired a shaman to come over Friday and sage my new apartment . I am very excited about this ! Make sure there is no bad juju here. ( I know. A bit eccentric)
