14 Hours and What Do You Get? Another Day Older and Still No Corvette...

I clocked in at the restaurant about 10:25 yesterday morning.  I clocked out about 12:20 this morning.

In short, I am fucking exhausted.

At lunch, I had a really sweet wedding party for 11.  The married couple had a city hall wedding, and this was their reception.  I got to pop the cork on my first bottle of Dom Perignon (1992).  They tipped me out at 20%, and mother of the groom slipped me an extra $20 as she left.

42nd_artist came in to visit.  I didn't get to spend much time with her, but I bought her lunch and gave her several happy wines to taste-- and Chocolate Creme Brulee!

Last night, between 6 and 9 pm, 13 servers fed over 300 people at 4 different parties complete sit down dinners.  I finally got dinner around 10:30.  I found myself cleaning huge candle holder and dancing to the DJ music at my party behind the food line (where the cooks work) around 11.  The whole crew did a shot of Tequila together shortly after that.  Our manager, Beer Activated Girl herself, thanked us all for our hard work and good attitudes.

I'm fucking exhausted.

But you know what?  I had an absolute blast yesterday.

I work with awesome people, and we spend our time making people happy.  But mostly, it's the awesome people I work with.  Everyone is awesome.  And it makes me happy.

Even after a 14 hour day.
