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.
