In my continuing quest to do any type of job that pays me a decent hourly wage, for nine hours today I will be selling pottery at the New York International Gift Fair today. No food service, no apron and no tips. Just me, a clipboard and hundreds of ceramic pieces. Anyone else at the fair? Come say hi. Since it is the ass crack of dawn over here (7:30 AM) I only have a moment to write about two things.
First off, on Tuesday February 1, I hope you will join me here in New York City for Out From Behind the Apron. WNYC is inviting servers and bartenders from across the city to share insights about the dining public, discuss industry trends, reveal pet peeves and trade behind-the-scenes stories. I will be speaking and if you come find me, I will shake your hand and pretend to be your bet friend in the whole wide world. The event should be interesting because they are essentially giving me and anyone else who wants to come, the chance to vent and bitch. And then they’ll put it on the radio. Fun. You have to RSVP so go to this link for more information.
The second thing I want to talk about also happens tomorrow and it’s International Pity-Bait Day on Facebook. A friend of mine created this day and it just makes me laugh. It’s sorta (okay not sorta, but completely) making fun of those people who put as their Facebook status things like: “Sigh. I thought it was going to happen for me, but I guess the universe had other ideas…” If you don’t see status’ like that, either your friends are a happy lot or you have them hidden like I do. Go to this link for more info and join the depressing fun. Some people think it’s mean to make fun of people. I think it’s fun. And I hear he is somehow going to make a contest out of it.
Okay. I am off. Sorry for the lame ass post. Don’t hate me. Comment and tell me you don’t hate me….
