Got home after 11pm yesterday. Slept 5 hours and woke up for the 10k run. That doubled the furthest I have ever run. It’s a whole different world with the 10k competitors and the 5 k competitors. In the 5 k races there are plenty of people who walk most of the way. It’s just a fun day out for them. In the 10k race everyone is a real runner. Even when you want to walk you feel stupid because everyone is running so you can’t walk. I am slow, real real slow. I am always at the back of the pack. But at mile 2 people started walking so I passed them by ( 5k people used the same path only we did it two times around instead of one). I was feeling good about myself after mile 3 because I was in the middle of the pack but the middle of the pack in a 5 k is the back of the pack in a 10k. When the 5 k people finished and i made the turn to continue i realized I was almost dead last for 10kers . Well, I ran the whole thing and finished so I feel very accomplished. ( my foot is killing me)
That ended at 9:15am. Rushed home showered then off to Jackson’s school fair and he had to work a booth til 330. Now trying to find a passport photo shop. Cvs was not working and I now have twenty minutes to get this done!
Jackson was in the front to middle of the pack until about 5 miles. He really slowed down after that but for a 12 year old he beat some men. Trey ended up passing Jackson after mile 5. Pretty good since Jackson was really far ahead.

Times when I cry: 1. On my birthday 2. 3x a year during my period 3. Sappy movies.
I just got a call from my assistant . ” Lil the New Orleans bar never picked up the Coyote truck . There are about a million people directly across the st from the bar and there isn’t a beertub out or extra girls flyering” I am sitting at the Denver airport already feeling stupid for missing my flight now I feel so humiliated that my assistant is telling me that my bar sucks. I am sitting on my bag in the C terminal about to cry.

I am a fucking idiot! I am so freaking stupid they should put my picture next to stupid in the dictionary! Idiot! I sat at the wrong gate and missed my plane. If that’s not bad enough the correct gate was just across the hall ad I was so oblivious that I missed it! Fuck fuck fuck! Everything is booked out of Denver to New Orleans because of the final 4. Now I am booked to Dallas and on standby to New Orleans tonight. Jackson has a big party tonight! Tomorrow morning we are entered in our first 10k and his school fair is tomorrow. I couldn’t of picked a worse day to fuck up in such massive proportions! Damn it

Walked into the Denver anniversary party to see Tessa in the Jennifer Beales flash dance working out outfit. (nude tights, black underwear and a cut up shirt). Love Tessa to death but it’s sickening how good her body is. Full six pack. Legs and butt of a fitness model. I don’t think that I could go back to my 20s workout 6 hours a day and look that good. Genetically I am inferior as are 99% of all women to Tessa. Now look at the other end of the bar and see Crystal who is actually a fitness model. Wow.
Party was good but I had to sneak out. Between Pinky and the old Coyotes buying shots , I knew I needed to escape before I lost anymore brain cells.

“Lil can I go to dinner with you and Marsha” “No Kevin” “Why Lil” “because it’s girls night and you are unable to speak about anything other then the military and republican propaganda”
I then sent him a text. IF we allow you to meet us , these are the allowed topics . 1. Shoes2. Bags 3. Wrinkles 4. Cellulite 5. The Voice 6. Home decor
Topics you are not allowed to talk about
1. Military 2. Fox news 3. Work 4. Military on fox news
We didn’t invite him and he called me at midnight. ” did you know Daniel likes Santorum?” so he went out with Daniel and spoke all night about politics and the military. ” Kevin , maybe once in a while ask about other peoples interests. ” ( I couldn’t be more embarrassed that Daniel likes Santorum) ” dude you get paid by empowering women. Don’t you think there’s a conflict there?”
Denver anniversary tonight!

Why do they apply for my Russian visa just a couple weeks before I go? This drives me nuts. The travel agent in charge of this says ” you need to be home to get this done” Guess what buddy, I am traveling! You screwed up and you need to rectify it! Really drives me insane. This will be my 4th time to Russia and every time I have traveled to Russia I have received my visa the same day Of travel. It’s so unnerving! Urgh

Scene ( 74 degrees gorgeous New Orleans)
Neighbor: ” Lil you enjoying the rich people’s weather”
Me: ” yes and why exactly is it rich people’s weather?”
Neighbor:” because if it was like this all the time we couldn’t afford to live here.”
Me: ” good point “

It’s the small things in life. My son has a plantars wart on his foot. I know it’s sick but the joy of digging it out and freezing it was just heaven. Lol
Shout out to the New Orleans bar! Go get um’ so nice that Milwaukee and New Orleans are hitting their stride right now

Funny someone I fired contacted Chantel recently. We just laughed. ” Did you respond by saying the bar is doing better then ever and yes I had to fly there to help fix your mess!”
Lee’s wife is having a lot of contractions recently. The little peanut just needs to stay in that belly for two more weeks to be perfect! I told Lee I would fly there if he needed help. I know the feeling when you have no family close to help. Ok positive vibes for Dre, Lee and the little one.
The bars are rocking. I love waking up and reading the manager’s logs. Hot damn.
Leaving for Yekarinsburg ( sp) Russia on April 9th. Russia bar #4

While on the elliptical machine I decided to read a short story called ” An Unexpected Twist.” hysterical. It’s a man’s tale of going through a series of colon operations. I burst out laughing at the gym when he speaks about his Ileostomy. This is when they hang part of your small intestine out of your body and attach it to a bag. Kindly referred to by the author as ” bag of shit” . The part I found so amusing is that a nurse came to him with a magazine called The Phoenix which is the GQ of people living life with their bags of shit. Everyone bbqing, laughing, picnicking. A whole happy community walking around with shit hanging out of their bodies. I know it’s gross but this story made my day. Nothing like the medicinal effects of laughter.

” Bristol Palin wants Obama to call her.” Are you freaking kidding me. I guess she has forgotten that it was Obama who made sure the Democrats didn’t attack her and her family after she got knocked up at 17.
Yesterday Trey (very conservative) called to tell me that he watched the Julianne Moore movie about Sarah Palin. The movie portrays Palin as an uneducated politician. Because he had liked her he then Youtubed the exact interviews and speeches that were shown in the movie. ” OMG Littlin’. The speeches were identical to the movie. She gave an interview to Katie Couric where she didn’t even know the difference between Iraq and Afganistan. She is an idiot!”

I don’t know what’s going on with Kevin and Lee but all of a sudden they want me to personally double check their new locations. One wants me to go to LA and San Diego. The other wants me to go to Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. While its nice to be needed, I have no idea how I can fit all these trips in. Between our new bar opening in Yekaterinburg, Russia in a few weeks, the anniversaries, and Jackson’s schedule I have no idea when I can fit this in. Maybe I will pull Jackson from school and head to Hawaii. I know people must think this is so glamorous . But the traveling really takes its toll on your body. omg, I just remembered my dream last night. Someone gave me the use of their private jet and I was able to take it to Milwaukee. I remember feeling very uncomfortable because I have never been on a private plane but very envious of being able to arrange your travel on a whim. One can dream!

OK starting tomorrow a 100 crunches a day!
“No sex necessary: Women have orgasms at the gym, study shows
By Jeanna Bryner
Women may not need a guy, a vibrator, or any other direct sexual stimulation to have an orgasm, finds a new study on exercise-induced orgasms and sexual pleasure.
The findings add qualitative and quantitative data to a field that has been largely unstudied, according to researcher Debby Herbenick, co-director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University. For instance, Alfred Kinsey and his colleagues first reported the phenomenon in 1953, saying that about 5 percent of women they had interviewed mentioned orgasm linked to physical exercise. However, they couldn’t know the actual prevalence because most of these women volunteered the information without being directly asked.

Since then, reports of so-called “coregasms,” named because of their seeming link to exercises for core abdominal muscles, have circulated in the media for years, according to the researchers.
“Despite attention in the popular media, little is known scientifically about exercise-induced orgasms,” the researchers write in a special issue of the journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy released in print this month. [5 Myths About Women’s Bodies]
Herbenick and her colleagues used online surveys to gather their data, which included answers from 124 women who had experienced exercise-induced orgasms and 246 women who reported exercise-induced sexual pleasure. Most of the women, ages 18 to 63 and an average age of 30, were in a relationship or married and 69 percent said they were heterosexual.
The researchers found that about 40 percent of both groups of women had experienced exercise-induced pleasure or orgasm on more than 11 occasions in their lives. Most of the women in the “orgasm” group said they felt some level of embarrassment when exercising in public places.
The “orgasm” group mostly said during the experiences they weren’t having a sexual fantasy or thinking about someone they were attracted to.
Of the women who had orgasms during exercise, about 45 percent said their first experience was linked to abdominal exercises; 19 percent linked to biking/spinning; 9.3 percent linked to climbing poles or ropes; 7 percent reported a connection with weight lifting; 7 percent running; the rest of the first-time experiences included various exercises, such as yoga, swimming, elliptical machines, aerobics and others. Exercise-induced sexual pleasure was linked with more types of exercises than the orgasm phenomenon.”

Hot Damn the bars did freaking incredible this weekend! Holla St Patty’s day. Two years in a row that the Milwaukee police closed down Water street after midnight. We lost 4 hours of revenue! At least the bar did very well before that.
On a serious note, I woke up today thinking that I thought at my age I would have my life in better order. Business is great but personally, I thought I would be married. Thats not on the horizon. I thought that I would have a foundation around me that gave me the emotional support I needed. Jackson’s growing up and giving me less attention. I have nothing personally on the horizon that may be permanent. Its scary to wake up alone and see no light at the end of the tunnel. My whole world has been Jackson and Coyote. No balance. Last time I tried therapy, I came with a list of things that I wanted to say but not dwell on. The therapist said ” I can see that you are result driven but perhaps you need to understand some of the things in your life to proceed.” So the next week I came with another list of things I thought we could talk about that day. Again, I was told ” perhaps one session isn’t enough to really speak about these things.” Well that was my last visit. I proceeded to buy a pen ( nano wand) that you wave around your chakras to help your energy hoping to take a shortcut. But low and behold it didn’t really work . ( I AM NOT JOKING. I STILL HAVE IT. I SLEEP WITH IT SOMETIMES. LOL) . Wow talking helps I am actually laughing right now.

Wake up in the morning wanting it to be bedtime again. Eat right, work out, be healthy and I am more tired then when I drink Coyote Ugly Whisky all day. LOl
bars are on fire! Go New Orleans
