We got SPANKED tonight.

and not the fun kind...or, well, the fun kind that one protests vigorously.


That was one hell of a ten hour day.

Mad Cash.
Aching bones.

Mind is putty.

The machines already cannot keep up.
So much action going on with credit cards in the Town even TODAY
the first day of anything that can be called SXSW.

TEN minutes I waited for a VISA to go through.
My 8 top was wildly patient--though they needed to go.

We will DIE in the next few days.
I cannot imagine what it will be like.
8 waiters tonight with three "screens" for register--and we were poking and cursing
each other to hurry....hurrry-hurry!!!!

Two Bartenders making drinks for the whole place--it was mad.


I threw cash at my EXPO and my two bussers--and at the bar.
I tipped out very generously tonight.
(They kept my ass above HOT water...mostly the EXPO.)

And wildly enough--through all the trials and mishaps?
So did my patrons.

I was on. Spring is in the AIR. SXSW is here--I can do anything.

25% on a very high ring, on a very difficult night.
Makes a girl PROUD.

I am good at this.

(many of my fellow waiters did not fair as well, it is easy to get frustrated and in turn,
frustrate those you are taking care of. Now is when the 10 to 15 years I have on those
'Young-uns' comes into play. I may not have your energy, or your ankles...but I have a
long long history of ripe Damage Control.)



Laughing....and tell stories.


Spanked I say, SPANKED!!!
And we are only juuuuuuuuuust begun.
