February 1, 2011 is Very Important

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….

  1. THAT is one of the reasons I won't friend some people on facebook – stopppp whining people. :DI like the happy folk. Or even keeled is good. Just don't boo hoo on my parade. 🙂

  2. DEFINITELY don't hate you! Never have! I've loved EVERY post you've done. I could "gush" on all day about how much i love you, but i've got to run get the clothes out of the dryer.=-)

  3. Don't hate you. I have one 'friend' who has yet to put any other kind of comment down. We call her the whiner. so sang froid… (Wait! I do hate you! You never visit or comment on my blog so I feel terribly deserted. I know it's of no interest to you, but you could make an old lady feel better!)I fully expect to see a posting about all the 'wonderful' comments you get at the pottery sale. Number one will have to be, "Don't buy that, M______, you can make one, yourself!" Good luck and beaucoup sales! And, if you get a chance, check out my new vlog!

  4. Definately could never hate you. And those status' definately sound familiar 😀 Everyone probably has at least one person on facebook who posts statuses like that!

I want two things: a shift drink and your email address!

Someday, if I ever get my act together, I might send out a weekly newsletter about the wonderful goings on of the restaurant industry. Or maybe I won't.
