” Lil good job!” Let me paint the picture of when my trainer said this to me:
I was laying on my side in gravel on a road with my bike on top of me. Really Jim (Jim Vance) that’s what you Fucking say after I fucking fall? ” well you braced for the fall very well.” I have ridden with him with the clip ins on my road bike and he is well aware of how terrified I am . He usually says ” You have never gotten hurt while you are with me.” So I said to him today ” I guess you can’t say that I have never gotten hurt with you.” His response ” ok you have never gotten killed while you are with me.” I don’t find comfort in that.
Daniel has been hammering the Key West managers today. You want to keep him off your back do every item from beginning till completion . Starting something and not finishing it is failure. And lazy.
PAST LIL SPILLS
” Lil good job!” Let me paint the picture of when my trainer said this to me:
Happy Veteran’s Day
When I wake in the morning I drink my coffee, check work emails, and read the news of the day. Today I was drawn to an article about The Founder of Mormonism having had 40 wives. This is how he convinced his followers that it was ok for pluralistic marriage; “According to the church’s essay, Smith had not wanted to take multiple wives, but relented after an angel appeared to him three times between 1834-1842. On the angel’s last visit, the church said, “the angel came with a drawn sword, threatening Joseph with destruction unless he went forward and obeyed the commandment fully.”
The first thought of course is ” score ” this guy convinced everyone that it was god’s will for him to have sexual contact with many women. Good for him that he was able to convince others including his first wife that it was alright to be sexually active with multiple ladies. But why marry them? Sounds like God sent the angel to torture him. 40 wives ? Can you imagine the kind of bickering and hormonal whining that would be going on every day?
My mother was officially kicked out of her assisted living home. My sister had to move her to another place. I cringe thinking about how ornery my mom is with the nurses and care takers. What a handful. Even when calling me if I don’t answer immediately she starts calling Jackson incessantly. “Mom, Mamma Luz said she needs a map immediately.” What? World map? Highway map? Next day she will call me. ” I ran out of coffee please send the New Orleans coffee or I am going to kill myself because my life is so horrible. ” My poor sister lives very close to my mother I can only imagine the hundreds of calls she gets. I feel for my mom because aging is not graceful and her body has become unusable in many ways but the bad attitude and constant complaining makes me wonder if the nurses are spitting in her drink daily?
While the world is watching the republicans take the senate, ISIS kill more people, kidnappings, shark attacks, and the dreaded Kim Kardashian, I have been mesmerized by the article on celebrities that shouldn’t wear sandals. http://www.answers.com/article/1216057/10-celebs-who-probably-shouldn-apos-t-wear-sandals?param4=ysa-us-demo-gut#slide=20 I had a boyfriend who would start to gag if he saw a woman with ugly feet. All the women who took ballet from early years through high school, have ugly feet. I can spot them from a mile away. Runners have ugly toes. Sometimes losing a toe nail. Getting blisters and calluses. The everyday stiletto wearing women have ugly feet. I am sure there are many more to add to the list.
80 degrees today in San Diego . So hot, yuck.
Bars doing well. Jeremy is keeping me on my game. We entered the Key west triathlon and the Half Ironman in New Orleans so everyday we report to each other on our accomplishments. Today 4 mile run/ 7 mile bike. Will swim later.
The San Diego bar is sponsoring a child from the Make a Wish Foundation. He’s 7 . His name is Colby and he has Lymphoma. OMG He is so adorable. When I get the Website info I will post it. This child is sweet. Makes you realize how fortunate most of us are.
Jackson has been certified as a coach through the Special olympics. He is drawn to the kids with Autism. I can’t tell you the happiness in his heart after a night volunteering. They are mostly autistic kids . He has such pride when they can communicate . My kid has a good soul.
KW staff joining the Key West triathlon!!
November 1st The San Diego bar started a 30 day get in shape challenge for the staff. Everyone has until Friday to give Dinesti a Before picture. At the end of the 30 days the person showing the most improvement via their before and after pictures wins. Mac and I also threw our names into the hat. Our side bet: which one of us can have the best abs in the 30 days . Honestly it will be easier for him since he’s a man but I think I can define more and hopefully that will help me win. Let the games begin!!
Wait shit Thanksgiving !!! Fuck!!!
Having a ball at the Key West Anniversary. So great to see Kristina , she looks so healthy .
I just received this from Daniel ” Lil I want you so bad. No one will know. I know I am not big but I make up for it in other ways .”
Not enough penicillin in the world !!
(That’s for Cassie)
San Diego crushed all the bars! It wasn’t even close . Austin coming in second . What a night ! I am on plane heading to Key West for the 2 year anniversary . Fun .
My new house in San Diego was a mad house yesterday with Halloween. We went through 15 bags of candy . I took an hour to help jackson with his makeup . Gets a little more complex when they are older . He was at the door handing out candy . It was so lovely to see how many kids in the neighborhood know him from school . As a mom it made me happy.
How is it possible for a person to be a triathlete and be scared to ride a bike? I am absolutely petrified to ride a bike. I train using a kinetic trainer in my house and only ride the bike outside during an actual triathlon. This week my new coach made me ride Fiesta Island with the clip ins. I could feel an anxiety attack brewing. That night I sent him an ” I think it’s best if I quit ” letter. Of course he talked me off the ledge. Today my neighbor has asked me to ride. I am flipping out right now. I hate being clipped into the pedals. ” Lil we will ride to Fiesta ” My response : ” No there are cars and hills” She thought I was joking. Nope . I am going to force myself to do this but I already texted my coach and said expect another ” I am going to quit ” letter. This is horrible. I am completely petrified!!
What on God’s Green Earth would make people want to come to the New Orleans bar on Halloween for a promotion called ” Black Magic Cowgirls?” What exactly is it? Why would people drag their asses from Bourbon St ? Just to see the girls wear black and cowboy hats? The food ? The drink specials? There are girls working all over Bourbon St. The specials on Bourbon are equal if not better then ours. SO What could we do to make people leave Bourbon and Come to us? THINK OUT OF THE BOX!!!
Today has been a disaster at work. Opening log after log of mediocre. Thank you, San Antonio, Denver, San Diego, and Austin for not being so bad that I get worried that I have to start bartending again. I bet I could walk into these bars and bartend a shift , Not getting on the bar once and ring in more then some of these girls. ( No don’t start asking me to). I cringed reading these logs. Picture the scene: Its Tuesday Day around 4 pm in OKC ( just picking that off the top of my head) There are 3 people in the bar because people haven’t gotten off of work yet. You go into the bar just wanting a drink maybe even some conversation and the bartender comes over to you using a mic ( even though you can hear her perfectly well since it’s dead) and she tries to get you to buy merch while screaming on the mic. As you can imagine , that customer wants to leave. Not only did that customer just want a drink and some chatting but now they are getting yelled at on the mic by some loud girl.
Let me guess I will now be getting an email from Daniel ” I have told the managers not to do that. Lil we haven’t done that in a while. ” Yeah right.
Believe me New Orleans isn’t the only boring Halloween party flyer. Does every flyer have to be some hot girl in a school girl outfit? My god get original. I told them at the manager’s conference to do a true ” Coyote Ugly Contest” Have the prize go to some guy and girl that people vote on that you would actually chew your arm off as not to wake them up from a poor sex decision after a night of drinking. How funny would it be if the girls came with buck teeth, pot bellies, pimples. And the guys show up with balding toupees, bad teeth, Dip hanging from their cheeks? That would be awesome!! No one has the guts to do it!
