A Day In The Life

2:00am. Get back to the hotel after a some rollercoastering at a private party in Orlando and is shocked and awed that the lounge is closed.

2:30am. Alpha Males in the group go up to their suite, order from 24 hour room service. Go back up in 30 minutes and wheel a cart full of burger & fries back to the ground level.

2:30:01. Weird out the Americans by dipping the fries in mayo.

Indeterminate. Upstairs and forget to set alarm clock.

Indeterminate:01. Grab the mini Pringles pack out of the mini bar and not give a shit about the price.

7:20am. Wake up with the TV still on. Holy fuck breakfast starts in 10 minutes.

7:40am. Downstairs with a smile, having pulled hair into ponytail, wiped the makeup smears off with the pillow case, touchup on the deoderant and skip the nylons because no time to open a new pack. Actually bother putting on underwear.

7:45am. Greet Alpha Males with smile. Get a sly look and get complimented on Tiger Team ability. The Alpha Alpha Male was still in the bar when I left so he knows.

8:00 - 11:30. Nod emphatically every time the Alpha Males use my name in vain in front of the room full of people. Look like I'm taking notes.

12:oopm. Give birthday hug and kiss to someone I loved very very much one day and still do just differently now.

12:30. Walk over to the Spa. Order a glass of wine and seared tuna salad.

1:30. Get changed. Sit in the sauna for 10 minutes and wonder why people think it is fun.

1:40. Go outside for a swim. Swim under the fountainy parts and pretend I'm in the ocean during a thunderstorm.

1:45 - 2:30. Think and think and think and think and hit a life changing epiphany moment.

2:30. Dry off and walk back into the spa.

2:35. Order an $18 glass of Champagne with a capital C and ask the waitress for pen and paper.

3:00. Ask her for a few more sheets.

3:30. Lie naked in a warm dark room and have old stuff scrubbed away until everything is new and fresh and ever so slightly raw.

Sigh. Drinking a bottle of red wine & listening to my old Journey CD makes me weepy Sheena.
I remember loving someone so badly & they never loved me back.

I'm guessing it has something to do with shoes spy.

The other thing that came to mind was some new food trend combining Pringles, fries, and mayo. It just seems so obvious now.
