Some of the NYC staff doing the Tough Mudder!!!
PAST LIL SPILLS
” Dude you better have me swimming like a damn mermaid if the doctor keeps me from running or biking.” That was my statement to my triathlon coach. I just got a call from my doctor. I ruptured a Popliteal Cyst ( baker’s cyst) at the Half Ironman. I knew it. I go in on Wednesday for a Cortisone shot. Even though it hurts I feel relieved. I will be back on track in no time.
Bars did mediocre this weekend. Daniel just called. This 30 hour full-time issue is so time consuming. ” Mac wants approval for … Marsha wants approval…” What the f ? We discussed this for months. These managers better figure it out.
NYC bar did the Tough Mudder this weekend! fun. ( It must of been cold)
What a tumultuous week. Daniel has been flying all over the country. We had upheaval at the Nashville bar . Now we are trying to get the bar back on track. Dinesti’s mom Facebooked me asking if I could send Dinesti back to Nashville. I love Dinesti and her mom but I don’t think I can grant her this wish at this point.
Nashville sucked this weekend. San Diego was down this weekend. I am feeling a bit antsy. I think I will head to Austin with Chantel next week. Where shall I go this week? Phoenix? hmmm
I had a very interesting email this week. Once I iron out the details I will spill the beans. Very funny. MRI results should be in this week. Let’s see.
Bars did great last night except 2!! NYC making a huge reversal. Well done. Numbers going way up!
This morning I received the Jeff wake up call which is never good. FUCKING KEY WEST. I am tired of this negative attitude. You wake up every day with the beach as your backdrop. Start giving gratitude to your surroundings and start bringing positivity to the people around you. I am very close to my limit. FUCKING MOVE ON THE GOD DAMN ANNIVERSARY PARTY !!!
Today I am grateful for Chantel and Judy. They are both very calming people in my life. I believe in my heart I have calmed with age. But I am latin which means that on occasion I let my temper get the best of me.
So I have been invited out on a date by an ultramarathoner. Very funny person. He had invited me out to go trail running ( fucking california. They don’t drink on dates like normal people ). I had told him that I will get an MRI on my knee on Friday so I could go but make sure to give me a map of the trail when he blows by me. His response ” I would never leave you alone in the woods. We can go your speed. But I need you to know that if we swim in the pool together I will make you cry like a little girl.” Why is that sexy? LOL
This is very funny.
I am going through post Half Ironman depression. I don’t want to do a damn thing. Bars are doing well. Every week there is one bar that seems to rise to the surface as the Number 1 headache of the week. It’s a toss up between NYC and Key west.
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
