Miss(ed) Manners

Woo Hoo!

Another fall, another giant event successfully completed and I’m more spent than a wad of dollar bills at a strip club on two dollar lap dance night. For those of you who don’t know I’m an event planner. Myself and my small band of coworkers, bosses, volunteers and trained apes plan and execute large scale hospitality events for certain other large events.

With my fall busy season coming to a quick end I should be able to get back to being updated every day, which is a good thing, if only in terms of my fingers sorely needing to get back into shape. I have fat, chubby fingers right now. Like sausages filled with words.

I couldn’t be happier with how things went this year. First of all, I got put up in the most swank hotel room I’ve ever had in all of my five years of doing this. Central Park South, 36th floor. As I was getting up every morning before sunrise to get ready, this was the view that greeted me:

So um, yeah, that was nice.

Like I just said a few times, things went really well this year. Well enough that there are no lawsuits pending, no injuries being treated and no contracts under revision. As anyone who’s in this business can tell you, that’s huge. The thing about throwing large events is that no matter how much meticulous planning you do, you’re ultimately at the mercy of fate and coincidence when it comes to how the event will actually run.

You may have spent hours carefully planning out a time line, job assignments and delivery checklists but when the time comes the only thing you can count on is that something will inevitably go horribly wrong. There are always issues, fires, things missing or boxes falling on people, etc.

That’s all I really wanted to say today, which can be summed up in the following sentence: I slept in a swank fucking hotel all weekend, worked from 6am to 12 midnight every day, soon I will have thin fingers.

The Hallway Hotness

So I’m standing in the hallway waiting for the elevator to take me down so I can have a much needed nicotine fix. I’m tired from a long night out, my eyes are dry and itchy, I’m just getting over a cold and I’m miserable in general. Needless to say the lift can’t come quick enough.

Then I hear the bathroom door open and close and  the soft rustle of wingtips on carpet. The skinniest man ever to don a shirt, tie and slacks is walking past me and he’s on the phone – which means he was on the phone while still in the bathroom a HUGE no-no.

He’s having the most interesting conversation as well.

“Yes… yes, yes…    yes. Yes…. yes… yes.”

He’s walking kind of slowly too, so it seems to take forever. All he keeps saying is “yes.” But the sheer amount of times he’s saying it and with such monotony it’s beginning to sound like the worst phone sex you could imagine.

“Do  you like my body, Harold?”

“Yes…”

“Are you horny?”

“Yes.”

“Does that feel good?”

“Yes,”

As he rounds the corner and heads into his office the faint whimper of a what I believe to be orgasm on polyblend slacks is heard. Ah, Monday.
