My two corporate hypochondriacs are probably very scared with this swine flu. I already heard from Daniel that he will not be going to any events or promotions that involve a large group of people.
Kevin and I just got back from mexico! There is no doubt in my mind that he will start experiencing symptoms of swine flu. He may have already gone to the doctor knowing him! I feel fine!
I have to be at Jackson’s school at 6:30 in the morning to help put up the new playground. Urgh. The worst part of that is making Jackson get up that early with me! Urgh!
Supposedly I will have a functioning kitchen tomorrow. Please!!! I want to cook!

Freaking two days in to a 3 day cleanse. I am starving, mean, and extremely agitated!
Interviewing two people for Oklahoma GM position. I spoke with both of them yesterday and both o them interviewed very positively for the position. Each of them definitely had their strong points and seemed quite qualified for the job. What is interesting is that they both have the same negative issue which has bothered me. They are both above 30. Each with one child. Both of them voluntarily quit their previous jobs ( no correlation to interviewing with Coyote) without having another job lined up. That seems very odd and irresponsible to me. I will delve into this further with each of them on our next interview.
Everyone has a story so we will see where their various stories lead us. Good Luck!!

I love the special events weekends! I was surprised to see that San Antonio did better on Friday night then Saturday night during fiesta! But great job! Austin awesome check average last night. Very pleased!
I have been told that my kitchen will be in working order at the end of the week. Please!!! It’s been a month since I have been able to use my kitchen. I am definitely tired of eating out with Jackson. I don’t even know the last time he ate a vegetable! But It’s going to look beautiful and I can’t wait to use my new oven.

As usual Memphis anniversary party was awesome. The theme was Disco. They put down a disco floor and played disco all night. Jacqui and I danced for hours. The girls looked fun. They were very colorful. I was very young when the disco era was happening but I don’t remember the dress being so colorful. The girls were very sparkly but all their outfits were multicolored. A combination of the 60’s and the 70’s. Kudos to the Memphis staff for always throwing a great party!
Went to the New Orleans bar yesterday. The new girl needs some work. Someone dared me to bark like the bouncers did. I did it but I have to admit that it must be hard barking witty remarks for 8 hours.
Unfortunately for us Jazzfest does not help us with sales. Most people spend all day at the fairgrounds eating , drinking, and watching bands. By the time they get back to the french quarter they are spent. It actually hurts us more then it helps us.

Got back yesterday from Cancun. Kevin and I met the architects down there and we have some killer ideas to resurrect the space. Plus we will definitely have a Coyote Ugly Drunk bus where we pick people up at their hotels and drop them off!!! Kevin was in rare form. We went out with the architects and scouted our area to see how many people walked by in an hour. While doing this we imbibed many tequilas! It always seems like a good idea while your doing it, but the next day you know you were an idiot!
My boyfriend was supposed to meet me in Cancun on Friday night. He spent 6 hours at the New Orleans airport waiting for a plane to Houston. Houston had severe weather and he had to spend the night at a hotel. The next day he ended up spending the whole day at the Houston airport waiting for a flight to Cancun but again the severe weather grounded most planes. He had paid a $100 upgrade fee to go first class. That upgrade gave him the right to go into The Continental Airlines
president’s Club. Free drinks, free food and showers. Let’s just say he took full advantage of all those privileges. To end the story, he ended up going back o New Orleans and never seeing Cancun.
Haven’t heard from Travis about French Quarterfest yet?

Cancun is beautiful. On the flight down here I sat next to a Navy Seal, I know this because he showed me his ID. He started with ” I bet you are a Leo , so smart and comfortable in your own skin” . Then ” I like to try and gage people . Your toes tell me that you are a natural born leader. You take care of yourself but you don’t need makeup because you are naturally beautiful.” “what is throwing me off is that your nail color is different on your hAnds then your toes. ” I countered these lines with giggles and some insights if my own. But my final words to him were ” do you think you can use those pathetic pick up lines on the flight attendent so I can get a pen ?”
Is it weird to not match your toenail color to your fingernail color?

Last year we had a female manager quit claiming that she needed to move home to take care of the legalities surrounding her mom’s death. Yesterday chantel just ran into her and her mom whom looked very much alive!!! LOL
I had Jackson tested by an English specialist . I have been worried that he wAs falling behind. The teacher told me today that he tested 2 years ahead!! She also told me that all the students from his school have tested very high!!!

Oh my god my friend just told me that her 70 year old mother just asked her what “teabagging” was? I am laughing so hard!!!
Back from Easter. Off to see Cancun space and meeting the architects. Very close to setting date for Oklahoma City!!
I may have said this before but how wonderful is my son? A few more months and he will have the 9 inches of hair to donate to Locks of Love. What a great kid!!!

I had a bad dream last night and I woke upset. I was set to write a blog that got a lot of angry feelings off my chest. But I won’t because the good of the day definitely outways the bad. My son is still sleeping. He and his cousin created a fort and slept in their last night. I just went in and watched them both sleeping. So precious.

Good day at work today. I am feeling strong and productive. Kevin called me up and told me that there was a GM applicant that practiced Wicca. ” Lil do you know anything about Wicca?” All I know about Wicca is that 25% of the storylines on the show ” The Haunting” revolve around people practicing Wicca. Maybe we can have a Wicca Night. People can pay to watch Wiccans conjure up spirits at the various bars. Maybe we can conjure up some spirits that haunt the lazy girls!!. That would be awesome! Only kidding. To each his own. I am sure there are some very wonderful Wiccans. . I truly know nothing about Wicca.
I asked Kevin to stain the OKlahoma city bar Walnut and paint the walls red. I just received samples of the bar and the walls. The bar looks black and not walnut and the walls look orange not red. Thinking positive, I hated the mustard color in Memphis but now it has grown on me so maybe the orange will grow on me to. DON”T SLOW THE PROCESS!!!

Wicca (IPA: /ˈwɪkÉ™/) is a neopagan, nature-based religion. It was popularised in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant, who at the time called it Witchcraft and its adherents “the Wica”. [Wikipedia]

Working on a overseas deal today. Interesting. I had a meeting with these people a couple of weeks ago. They were very nice and we spoke strict business during the meeting , with the help of a translator. At the end of the meeting I went to shake and give the standard side kiss to the female partner and she froze like a popsicle. I said I am sorry, I was raised in a latin family I was taught to kiss hello and goodbye.
I am having my kitchen remodeled. For the last week. I have had no stove, fridge, cutlery. Jackson and I have to eat out for every meal. It’s going to be beautiful when it’s done but I am definitely tired of not having my space back or food here.

Holy Crap, way to go Austin and San Antonio!I love opening up such incredible logs. Unfortunately Memphis did not have quite the same type of night as some of the other bars!
I love reading the logs sometimes. Nashville’s log said that the convention in town is a Chess Comvention. Well judging by the fair numbers , it seems that the chess club doesn’t drink as much as I would like.
These lawyers have me so concerned about every word I say. I reread the line ” the chess club doesn’t drink as much as I would like.” and the first thing that comes to my mind is ” what lawyer is going to use my words against me? When I started the Lil Spill years ago I was definitely more free to speak my mind. I miss those days. Funny things happen all the time but I am so cautious about what I write. Is it against some health code that years ago when I was working so much at the NY bar I may have had a quickie in the walk in? Now even though I haven’t run the NY bar for 10 years , I wouldn’t doubt I will hear some shit from the GM’s, ” Lil the staff gets a mixed signal about our rules when you write that.” What is the mixed message? I am the owner I can do what I want!”
Right now I am thinking about how I loved BBQ ing in the back of the NY bar. Again over 10 years ago but is some residential group going to use that against me?
It will all come out if I ever write a book.

Having problems with my computer and I can’t read the logs.
What exactly is twitter? Is is a mix between myspace and IMing? I don’t get it. I don’t even have a facebook page. I am old
