*Sigh* I Can Breath for a Second!

Wow! It's been a long, long time since I sat down at my computer and had a free minute or two to blog. I usually spend a good chunk of my day with my computer, so these past few days have been hectic and strange for me.

I have had 3 shifts at my new job (for BR: it's the Fraternal Order of Eagles in PG), one bartending and two cocktail waitressing. I have enjoyed each shift in its own way, and I really love having cash from tips. I forgot how nice it is to pay for things with cash, instead of my debit card!!

It's been a lot of fun trying to get along with the old hick regulars that like to give me a hard time. Fortunately I can dish it as well as I can take it. I'm fitting in quite nicely, I think. They keep wanting me to pledge and become a member. It's a really good deal for women: a $15 initiation fee then $17 per year thereafter. Their drinks are cheaper than any other place I've seen in this valley. They have a really poor selection of beer, but they can make the most common mixed drinks.

So I'm thinking about doing it.

My birthday is coming up next week so I'm throwing myself a birthday party tonight. I'd invite ALL y'all, I really would. But I know that you wouldn't make the interstate travel to get here before 8 pm. So oh well. :)

Well I'm going to do some laundry and read some blogs, for the first time in a week. I hope all is well with my peeps. Happy Saturday!!

Congrats on your new job, I think that's awesome!! It means everything if you can find a way to make money doing something you actually enjoy.

I'm so looking forward to the party tonight! 8PM can't come soon enough, yipee! :)

Good for you, girl. Happy Birthday to Yoooouuu! Yes, I can sing too. Isn't it sick?

Thanks for your kind words...

And it's strange the "Fraternal Order" will let women in. Smart.

Bishop Rick said...

Did they tell you about the obligatory initiation of the female members? There is a reason the admission price is so low...jk

Happy B-day.

Happy B-Day :) Have a swingin' good time (like in square dancing, where it's all energetic and fun and social - I can't help it people have dirty minds and assume something else).

Give the new employer a grace period of at least six weeks to three months, THEN think about joining.

Bishop Rick sounds like he's familiar with these fraternal organizations - does this club have a hazing tradition?

Bishop Rick said...


Only upon request :)

Sister Mary Lisa said...

OK, BR, I'm requesting. What's the obligatory initiation? I'd like to hear all about it before I go to UT and try it..

Bishop Rick said...

I can't go against the brethren by divulging the secret, but it has something to do with putting dessert in your mouth.

Sister Mary Lisa said...

Whooooosh. (Letting the breath out of my overused lungs.)

Wow. I'll be there in 9 hours.
