industry people can be a little weird

thurs 29 jan.

so i went to a concierge event the other night. it was dinner at Palio. i met some other concierges.  a lot of them have been doing this for years and years and years. as a reult of which, they all know each other.

i felt like an intruder. some were friendly to me, others, uh, weren’t unfriendly, but more, uh, shall we say, indifferent.

what i discovered, mostly, is that concierges like to peacock their successes, their connections, travel experience, or weird things like their clothing choices. i know i’m not explaining myself very well. but many of them are weird.  trust.

i got a little gossip while there, of course.  business is slow all across the city. many people were asking me about my pay structure, and if i worked completely on commission, or i had a supplemental wage.  i was a bit surprised at this, until i figured out that many of these concierges are “contractual employees”.  so they don’t actually work for the property that they represent.  (no wonder some of them are so pompous–they’re overcompensating)

i didn’t stay very long, because at theHotel, Jin was busy doing her best impression of a bulimic, and i got called in to cover the rest of her shift.

and wed, i got called in to both jobs.

and today is my remaining day off.  and i’m gonna do my laundry.

woo hoo. excitement at every moment!

i’m kinda bored with my life thus far.

i haven’t really gone out much lately.

it’s probably because at this new job, i make 60% less than i used to.  so very unfortunate.

oooh la la!

mon 26 jan

went to oola with JNayNay and hildo last night after work.

hildo is totally rockin a new ‘do.  and she was also workin’ a skirt with fitted lite blue coat. very MadMen.  loved it.

and what else?  they made an amuse bouche for me,  since i joined them so late.

me and hildo shared a cheese plate at the end of the night.  and what the hell did i drink…  i can’t remember.

oh, right.  a sazerac.   good times.

i got free tix to this play.  but i was dreadfully ill all last week. i was well enough to see it on the final night that free conicerge tix were available, but, of course, i was working, so i gave them to HomeSlice and Czechxican.

they enjoyed it. but i’m not really sure what it’s about.

i was working, so they stopped by the desk afterwards and gave me the full report.  and i still don’t know what it’s about.

they wanted to go to Gitane. when they got there it was closed.

so they ended up at Colibri.  i met up with them for a drink afterwards.

it took a really long time to get a drink.  (what is it with suck-ass bartenders in this town?) i realize that it’s the end of the night (10pm) for you, but you’re still open for business.  and you’d think you’d wanna make some money since you have to be there anyway–whatever.

where was i going with this…?

oh, HomeSlice and Czechxican.  they’re funny. it’s hard to go into details about how they’re funny.  but they just are.  trust.

we re-hashed stories about how Czechxican constantly runs into CrazyCzech, sometimes on consecutive days. and the stories of NewYear’sEve at GaryDanko. they are so going to be BFF soon.

um… i thought this post was going somewhere, but clearly it’s not.

whatever.
