new job...

so I think I have officially lost it. in my life right now I am beyond busy and obviously a glutton for punishment. I have taken on a new job. If you live in the Falls or used to, you remember The Spot right? So a friend of mine took it over and is re-opening it as The Spot on 53. Bear was out having Wednesday-night-Wings and my friend mentioned that I should come work for her, like one night a week, to make some money, get out of the house...he actually thought that sounded like a good idea and mentioned it to me at home that night. My initial reaction was "yeah right, like I have time for that". But you know...going back to my roots as a waitress, making some mom-fun-money, getting out of the house, no kids, people to talk to, etc...I thought, that might be really fun. So I picked up an application and laughed my way through it. I almost didn't even know what to write on it. My friend, her name is Krista by the way, and I worked together the summer of 2001-right before I got married. We were hostesses at the Holiday Inn that summer together and laughed a lot. So I actually put down that job in the "previous job" section. Along with that, I put down Sha-Sha and Border Bob's...totally pathetic right? See why I laughed. I wouldn't hire me with an app like that. But thankfully she knows me and knows that I own/run/manage my own "successful" business in town. Whew. So in the "wage desired" column-I put "whatever you pay". In the days/hours preferred-I put only Friday nights and if I want the night off, I am unavailable. Reason for leaving previous jobs listed-I put, because I went off and got married and started the life I have now. Honesty always prevails! So I drop the application off and about an hour after I put the thing in the mailbox she calls and says, of course you can come work for me. I double checked with-are you sure that I am not too demanding in what I want? She says, no not at all, it'll be fun for us! Where would you like to be...the lounge or the dining area? I respond with, where do you see me? She says, the Lounge (where else?) I wonder if I can have a glass of wine while I am working??? Probably not. So, The Spot of 53 is scheduled to open the end of January and I will be working the Lounge section every Friday night (except Emmitt's birthday), so feel free to come and eat, drink and tip me lots!

You are so funny, living in the falls, where else would they expect to see your experience from? A five star property in Minneapolis? You're great at customer service and really I doubt she would have cared if you put anything:)
