Ahhhhh - Gotta Love that Pool

Today was a piece of cake. We went over to the brand new Hard Rock on the strip and they gave us a tour of the place. It's amazing. We are officially done with classroom training and tests. I Have another day off - tomorrow! Yay! And then, the fun begins!

We have two days of waiting on each other and then two days for friends and family and then we are offically open Saturday, September 5th. I cannot explain how thrilled I am to finally be making some cash! Yay!!!!!!!!! Friends and family should be really good money because everyone is getting their food for free. Of course, there's always a chance that some people won't realize they are supposed to tip. To be, it seems RIDICULOUS that someone wouldn't know they are supposed to tip. But, I guess not everyone is as smart as me. ha ha

Anyway, a few days ago, my good blogging buddy, Drewspop came into town and we always meet up when he's here. He was staying at the Bellagio and I happened to have the day off, so I threw on a bathing suit and we laid out by the Bellagio pool. Or, should I say at the "Bellagio Complex". They literally have 4 or 5 pools for you to choose from. Loved it! We laid out for 5 minutes and then we got in the water for 10 minutes and then we laid out for another 5 minutes and jumped back in the pool. YES - it was HOT out that day.

After the pool, we headed over to our usual spot - Diablo Cantina! That place never disappoints. It was a good time.

So, how many people are coming out here to Vegas in December? I'm looking forward to hanging with some bloggers and throwing around some money at the poker tables.

Well - David and I are heading to Lucille's Barbeque Restaurant for dinner and then to a meeting. Have fun at work on Monday kids. I'll be thinking about you as I even out my tan at the pool!!

Update

For the past few days, we've been training over at the Hard Rock Hotel/Casino/Cafe. It's been fun. We got to taste the food on the menu. I think the food tastings will help me to remember what everything looks like and what ingredients are in said dishes.

Yesterday was really fun because they had me get up in front of the whole class and pretend I was selling the apple cobbler to the table. Once I "sold" the dessert, they gave me a free one to eat. Holy shit!! That cobbler was so good! Yumm!

We also got invitations for "friends and family" next week. Sept. 3rd and 4th they are opening the restaurant for our friends and family. We give them free food and soft drinks and they get to eat and we get to practice working in our new cafe. It's a win win for everyone. They are also expected to tip us, so we finally get to make some actual money!!

I got my uniform, I tried it on and its adorable. I went out and bought the white shoes and I took them in to show my manager and she said I couldn't wear them. They are slip resistant, but they weren't leather and they were "clogs" style instead of lace up tennis shoes style. So, I have to take them back today.

This is what our uniform looks like...



It's black with the purple piping you see on the cute little pin girl. Of course I won't be carrying around a guitar and I probably won't wear my outfit so short. I have to wait tables - sheesh!

I still have to get my name embroidered on my uniform. I'll probably do that today. And then sometime next week I have to get that damn Sheriff's Card. It's a pain in the ass. You usually have to wait for hours and of course they are only open during the week. I'm not looking forward to that.

And then - finally - we have our grand opening on September 5th! Yay!!!! I'm so excited.

Did I mention all of the hot guys I'm going to be working with? I actually made some friends already which is nice! One day I went over to my friend Nate's house and we had a study session. Two other guys came over too. So, it was me and three guys - and we actually did study. We got a lot done and I know we all passed that test. We took a floor plan test yesterday. We had to label the table numbers on a floor plan that was drawn for us. I aced it. Studying table numbers is a lot easier than lerning the ingredients in all of our specialty drinks! Those drinks are hard to learn!

Anyway, I'm rambling. I'm going to enjoy my Saturday off and then I'm heading to my brand new cafe tomorrow for the first time ever! woo hoo!

Beating Bad Beats in Poker



Every poker player has been there.



“He hit a two-outer on me on the river!”



“That donkey called one-hundreds with an inside straight draw on the turn!”



If these statements sound familiar, then yes, it’s true, you’re not alone. We’ve all been sucked out, and it always sucks!
But, did you ever sit down and ask yourself whose fault it was. Sure, you might have been way ahead, but did you play it
correctly and protect your hand? Probably not.



The biggest mistake most of us make in these Texas Hold ‘Em situations can be summed up in one word: GREED! Sometimes the
word will make you rich beyond your wildest imagination. And sometimes, it will slap you across the face and make you feel
like the biggest donkey ever to hit the felt.



Whether you play live poker or online poker, protecting your hands is key. A
lot of players think they should protect their smaller hands. But, when you stop to think about it, does that really make
sense? Why put so much effort into protecting a small pot? Protect the big pots! I’ve seen it so many times – someone has
a set on the turn and checks when there’s a flush draw out there. The other player checks, hits his flush, goes all-in,
and the slow-playing, set-holding donkey has to call. Result: Felted!



The word ‘greed’ comes into play here because more times than not the hand was raised pre-flop and there was some decent
action on the flop. Why take a chance of seeing another card? It’s better to take the medium-sized pot than risk losing all
your chips.



Another misconception is that people don’t want to bet big with the set in that spot because they don’t want to risk losing
it if their opponent calls. But you don’t need to go to poker school to
know that if you bet $50 into a $60 pot and the other player only has a draw with one card to go, they’re most likely going to
fold. And even if they do call, the odds are still in your favor.



The bottom line: Protect your big hands in the poker game even more than your
small ones. This will help you prevent bad beats (or at least decrease them). And that, in turn, will bring you more cash.



Good luck. And play smart!

The Lineup

Do you guys watch Celebrity Rehab? It's one of my favorite shows. I love Dr. Drew and I love watching the celebs trying to get clean. Anyway, here's the lineup for this season...


Mackenzie Phillips (One Day At A Time)
Heidi Fleiss
Tom Sizemore
Dennis Rodman
Mindy McCready (Country Music Singer)
Lisa D’Amato (America's Next Top Model)
Mike Starr (Alice in Chains)
Joey Kovar (Real World Hollywood)
Kari Ann Peniche (Playboy Playmate)

I was surprised to see Joey from the Real World Hollywood. Well, actually, I'm not that surprised. Joey had an alcohol problem on the show and he actually left early to go home and try to get sober. I'm wondering if his "alcohol" problem also includes drugs.

The reason I am so interested is because for years and years I've been watching the Real World and I always wondered if the people on there do drugs. They always show them partying in the clubs and drinking themselves into stupors and I know from years of experience that most clubs are riddled with drugs. I've even partied at some of the places these people are hanging out and I know there are drugs everywhere. But, they never ever show anyone doing drugs and they never even talk about it.

I always wondered if the Real World people were secretly taking drugs when the cameras weren't around, but I just never knew. So, when I saw that Joey was on this season's Celebrity Rehab, I was excited! I wanna know if he was using drugs when he was filming the Real World! I guess we'll find out.

So, today is my day off! Yesterday I went to work and took a liquor and food test. I definitely aced it. MY trainer was nice enough to get a copy of the test and read us every question on it. So, I knew exactly what to study. Awesome!

Today my mom and I are doing some shopping. I got my cute little outfit for work, but now I need to get little black boy shorts to wear under neath since it's a dress, I also have to get polishable, non slip shoes white shoes and I'm also getting my name embroidered on the dresses. It's going to be too cute!!

We got to do a food tasting yesterday. Yumm! The food was great. Especially the brownies!

Happy Hump Day!

Friend to the bloggers



Guess what kids?! Summer is winding down and Fall is around the corner. Kids are going back to school, I'm going to be putting the flip flops away soon, Macy's is putting out the new and amazing cool weather boots and best of all - The bloggers will be descending upon Vegas in just a few months. And, I can't wait.

I know I know - it sounds like it's a long ways away, but in actuality, it's right around the corner. Seriously! You guys know how time flies.

Hop on the computer, book yourself a room, pay for your flight, start putting money away to gamble with and beg the spouse for a pass - because you don't want to miss this event.

I'm so happy to announce that this year, our good friends over at Bodog are going to be hanging out with us again this year! Bodog has always been a good friend to us bloggers. They set up free tournaments for us, they bring lots of swag for us to wear and they give us a 110% Deposit Bonus!

YES - that's right! You heard me! 110%. HELL YEAH! It's really a great deal.

These are HUGE reasons for us to all be playing over at Bodog. If you aren't signed up - do it today!!


Maybe if we are lucky - Nadia will bring some of the girls with her to Caesar's Palace this year...

So funny!

So, today is my day off. We've been training everyday from like 8 or 9 a.m. til 5 or 6 p.m. It's mostly been classroom training which is kind of boring. Today I have to spend a good chunk of my day studying because tomorrow I have to take a big test on the menu. Luckily, my trainer is so sweet! She got a copy of the test and read it to us. So, I know exactly what's on it and what I need to study! I love this chick! She's been with the company 19 years and she flew in from Orlando to train with us for the next few weeks.

Anyway, here's a funny story...

I was driving to work yesterday (Sunday morning) and it was like 8:30 a.m. and I needed some gas. So, I stop at this gas station on Flamingo right across the street from the Palms and I go in to pay for the gas. As I'm walking back out to my car, this guy stops me and introduces himself. He was nice enough. He said he was from L.A. and his name was Suge. He walked out to my car and pumped my gas for me. So, the pump turns off at 6 dollars and he's like "how come you are only putting 6 dollars in?" and I"m like "well, I don't get paid for a few days and this is all the money I have." So, he gives me a twenty dollar bill which was nice and then he gave me his number and asked if I wanted to hangout sometime. So, I go back into the gas station and I told the clerk that this random guy outside just gave me a twenty dollar bill and I wanted to put some more gas in my car. The clerk is like "girl, don't you know who that guy is??" and I was like, "Is that Suge Knight?" and she's like "yes it is!" How funny!!! Suge Knight gave me his number and twenty bucks. This is why I love living in Vegas!

Quick one...

So, I don't have much time to blog - just a quick post...

I had orientation at the Hard Rock tonight and it went really well. They interviewed 8,000 applicants and I was one of the 460 people they hired! It feels pretty good! I think the Hard Rock is going to be a great company to work for. They have lots of great benefits, they do all kinds of community service and training is very thorough. Our new restaurant is 3 levels, it's on one of the most populated parts of the strip and it seats 960 people. It's huge!

It's midnight here, so I have to head to bed. We start training at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow and my unemployed butt is not used to getting up that early!!

So, more to come - wish me luck. From what I can tell, we have lots of tests to take during the next few weeks.

Day Four in Cali

They named a street after me...




So, our last day in California arrived - quickly! As always, our trip flew by. We had to check out right away and then we headed over to Grauman's Chinese Theater four our Tourist Bus Trip. Whenever we go away we do one of those touristy trips, like in San Francisco we did the hop on hop off double decker bus tour and that was perfect! In L.A. we picked an AMAZING tour and it had three parts. The thing that drew us in the most was that they said this was the best tour you can take to possibly see a star. We were all about seeing a star and plus we didn't want to do just the regular old tour that everyone does. So, it was a little more expensive but we chose the three part tour.

Part One - Stars Homes! This is a tour that probably everyone visiting L.A. does. You sit back on the bus and relax as the driver takes you through Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Rodeo Drive, etc. He slows down and shows you the homes of lots of famous people like Al Pacino,

Al's very modern home...




Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Hottie David and Victoria Beckham, Nicholas Cage, The Playboy Mansion, Aaron Spelling, Christina Aguilera and many more. A lot of them you can't see from the street because of the gates and the trees. But, a lot of them you can see just fine.

Curb outside of Michael Jackson's home...



So, it was a good tour. I snapped tons of pictures, but I'll be damned if I can remember who's house is who now that it's been a week or two.

Mom and I hanging out on Rodeo Drive...







Part Two - BEST and most unique part of the day. Sony Pictures.

Mom hanging out in the lobby at Sony...



We actually got to go on the Sony Pictures Lot where they actually do lots of filming and we walked all around the place and saw all kinds of cool stuff. The MOST EXCITING part of the trip was when we were standing there waiting for our tour guide to open up this building and take us in. I'm standing there and I see this girl and guy coming our way. The girl had blonde hair and she was carrying and umbrella to cover herself from the sun that was beating down. I was thinking to myself. "Oh lord - these L.A. people are so funny. They must really think this is a hot day. They should try living in Vegas in August. They don't know what real heat is." and furtermore I was thinking this chick probably thinks she's hot shit and doesn't want the sun to hit her face because she's a wanna be actress and doesn't want to get sun/wrinkles/premature aging. As all of this crap is running through my head, she gets closer and closer and I realize it's Cameron Diaz!!!!! Holy crap! She walked right by me. I started elbowing my mom and then hurried up and tried to get my camera out. The whole group saw her. It was the highlight of my day! She looked beautiful. Really really pretty in person. We also got to sit in the audience of the Wheel of Fortune. There was nobody there. We just got to go in and sit down. It was pretty cool.

Here's a picture of Cameron's butt...





Part Three - The third part of the tour was walking tour on the Sunset Strip. We got lots of history about Grauman's and the walk of fame and the Hollywood Sign and about the Kodak Theater and the Oscars that are held there every year.

Chinese Theater...





Very informative and fun. We had a great tour guide. I had no idea that the Kodak theater is a mall!!!!! They drop curtains in front of all of the stores to turn it into the entrance for the Oscars. And the red carpet is actually the street!!!!! They shut it down for 5 days leading up to the big event. I'll never look at the red carpet the same again.


Stairway at Kodak Theater (where all of the actresses make their big entrances)...




The very end of our day, as we were heading back to our car and about to head back to Vegas, we get stopped on the sidewalk. They shut down traffic and they are about to film a scene of a movie. They yell "ACTION" and I see Jamie Foxx go running across the street filming some sort of action scene! It was so cool! What a great way to end our trip.

So, all in all, I got to see Drew Carey at the Price is Right, Cameron Diaz at Sony Studios and Jamie Foxx filming an actual scene. Great trip!!

Day Three in Cali



Day Three is upon us and I think it's the day I was looking the most forward to. We were heading to Universal Studios and although I know it's a movie themed park, I was secretly hoping that there would be a few thrill rides. I'm a roller coaster junky and I love scary rides.

So, we headed over to the park. It was pretty close to our hotel. Up to this point we hadn't taken many pictures so I got that bad boy camera out and started snapping away.




Universal was fun. I was maybe a little disappointed. I am used to parks like Kings Dominion and Six Flags that are so big you can't get through the whole thing in one day. In most cases, you have to pull out the map and look at all of the rides and decide which ones are most important to you and then you navigate a course that will get you to all of the rides you NEED to get on.





Somehow, we managed to get on all of the rides and we saw almost every single show and we were done by 6 p.m. We also sat down and had lunch. And by lunch I mean we each had a soft pretzel and a coke. But still, we sat down for a bit.

The mummy was the only ride that I would consider a "thrill ride". It wasn't scary enough, but it was fun nevertheless. My mom hates roller coasters, but she still got on the mummy with me so that was cool.

The Jurassic Park flume ride was SO FUN. I don't know why, but I laughed my ass off. I wasn't expecting all of the WATER that came shooting out of that ride. Luckily we bought ponchos because we saw how many people were coming off the ride soaking wet. It was the smartest thing I've ever done. hehe

My future husband is an actor in the Waterworld Show. Holy crap. I was in love. I took about ten pictures of this guy. Maybe a little stalkerish but that's okay. I wanted to go up and introduce myself to him after the show, but he was nowhere to be found.




The tram tour was really neat. The showed you how they make it rain in a movie and then the rain turned into a storm and then a dam broke and there was a flood around our little tram - too fun! We got to see the Jaws set and of course the shark was swimming around our tram. Now he's eating my mom...



The guy from the Psycho movie was on set carrying a dead body out to his car and the Fast and the Furious cars put on a little show for us. Good little tour.

Dead body...



Mom and I posing with a doggy actor...




After Universal was over we got in the car and drove 20 miles to Redondo Beach because there was a Chick Fil A there! You guys know how much I love and miss my chick fil a. So, my mom and I hopped in the SUV, punched in the address and followed the directions on the GPS. Yay!




I was so happy! Best dinner ever. It's been so long since I ate there, I didn't even know they had milkshakes there now. I got a cookies and creme shake. So good. It was worth the 40 mile roundtrip journey.

Day Two in California

Even though I ordered Price is Right tickets online ahead of time, those tickets do not ensure that you get a seat. So, we had to get up Monday morning at like 4:00 a.m. and head to the CBS Studio to get in line. The line was around the block already! These people must have either spent the night or just stayed up all night and got there at like 2:00 a.m. Ridiculous! We wanted to see the morning taping, but unfortunately, only 300 people can sit in the audience and we were like number 365. So, we ended up getting seats in the afternoon taping. This means that the taping starts at 4 p.m. but we have to be back at 12:30 p.m. Wow! 4 hours ahead of taping? That seems like a waste of time. But, whatever. So, again, it's like 6 in the morning now so we have 6 hours to waste.

We get in the car and drive back to the hotel and have breakfast at Denny's. I wasn't feeling it. I didn't eat much and I felt like crap. So, my mom is like the Energizer Bunny. She would have been happy to start sight seeing at 6 a.m. But, I was like "oh hell no" I just wanna go back to bed - PLEASE!!! So, she caved in and let me go back to bed. A few hours later she wakes me back up I'm feeling a lot better. Thankfully! We head over to the studio and now we have to figure out parking. The most annoying part of this trip is the constant search for reasonably priced parking. It's tough. There was this one garage near CBS that wanted something like $1.00 for every 15 minutes. Are you kidding me??????

Luckily, we found a street that you couldn't park on from 10 - 12 because of street cleaners, so we drove around for 20 minutes until the clock struck 11:45 a.m. and then we parked and sat in the car for another 15 minutes until it was safe to get out. We weren't the other ones. That street was FULL promptly at noon. Everyone had the same idea we had. Hey - it was free parking! Can't beat it.

Price is Right - ugh. So, we get there. We get our numbers. We are numbers 63 and64. Those are pretty good. They call us in order and we sit on a bench. Next they go through a few hours of taking our pictures, having us fill out little cards about ourselves, interviewing us and FINALLY, around 4 p.m. they let us into the studio. It was such a long and boring day. I either made friends with, or made fun of half of the people there. Well, what was I supposed to do? They took all of our cell phones. So, I had to people watch and run my mouth and just socialize.

So, we get in there and they did the one hour taping. It was fun. During commercial breaks Drew Carey would crack jokes and talk to the audience. He's very charming. And of course, NO LESS than about 5 people that I made fun of during the day got called up to the stage! I couldn't believe it. They called a few girls with really tight short shorts on. I thought for sure they woudln't make it on stage because they were not appropriately dressed. I had a tank top on earlier, but I covered it with a T-Shirt because I figured that cleavage wasn't very respectable. I was thinking about past shows that I've seen and they usually don't put sluts up there. Right?? But, anyway, it was a good time. I enjoyed the show, I had a great seat! I'm only 3 rows from the stage. I have a good chance of being on T.V. because I'm right behind contestant's row and the show will be on November 3rd. I'll remind you guys when it gets closer.

After the taping, it was like 6 p.m. Our whole day was shot. I mean, where were we going to go at 6 p.m.?? We decided to head over to the Cheesecake Factory in Sherman Oaks near our hotel. It was yummy! I love that place. We bought a few scratchoffs on the way back to our hotel. I LOVE scratchoffs! When I lived in Maryland I had a MAJOR scratchoff addiction. We don't have a lottery in Nevada, so I always take advantage of the lottery when I go to other states. I like the Bingo and the crossword scratchoffs. Anyway, that was Day 2. I didn't even get any pictures because we weren't allowed to take photo's at Price Is Right.

Day One

Thanks for all of the well wishes guys! I love my facebook friends and my blog readers. You are all so supportive. So, during the interview process yesterday I found out that we have to wear skirts as Hard Rock Servers. UGH. I'm not going to lie. The reason you haven't seen many pictures of me lately is because I've been eating like a cow and I've put on some weight. It's hard. I recently stopped using drugs - AGAIN! and whenever I get clean, I sort of replace the drugs with food. I know the pattern very well, but it's hard to stop. All of my jeans are tight and I seriously need to lose some weight. This is the kick in the ass I need. Nobody wants a big cow waiting on them in a short skirt. Right?

So, anyway, let me give you a Day One in Los Angeles Trip Report...

We drove into Cali pretty early and checked into our room in Sherman Oaks. Next, we drove on down to the beach. I was dying to see Venice Beach and Santa Monica and hell - I just wanted to be near the Ocean. I miss the water and the waves and the sand, etc. My mom of course was having a fit about parking. It was pretty expensive to park anywhere. They wanted like $25 to park in most lots. So, we never even got out of the car in Venice Beach. We drove through Santa Monica and into Malibu and went up in the hills and looked at all of the beautiful houses and then we went back into Santa Monica and found a decent parking garage that didn't charge and arm and a leg. We walked up and down the pier, went into a couple of shops, got some yummy frozen yogurt and then called it a day. Because, Day Two was our Price is Right Day and we knew we had to get up REALLY early to get in line at The Price is Right.

Here's a few pictures from Day One...

My mom...



Me...



View of the Beach...



The Water...



And that's pretty much it from Day One. More to come!

Yay!

So, I'm pretty psyched! I went to the Hard Rock Casino today to apply for a position at the new Hard Rock Cafe that is opening on the strip. First I filled out an application, next I had an interview. A few minutes later I had another interview, after that they sent me across the street for my third interview and then they hired me!!!! Yay! I filled out tons of paperwork and now I'm in. Yay! I'm so glad I quit that dead end job in Summerlin. We have orientation from like 6 - 10 p.m. next week. Weird time for orientation right? I thought so. Then, I think we train for about 2 weeks and then I finally start earning some actual money. This new restaurant is huge. It's 3 levels and something like 40,000 SF. FUN! There is no way in hell that this restaurant will be slow. It's right next to the MGM and the M & M Factory. That part of the strip is always packed!

So, now, whenever you guys come into town, you can come by the Hard Rock and visit me. woo hoo!

Friday, August 07, 2009

Done...

So, another job down the tubes. I mean, I should have quit this place a long time ago. With the exception of the 3 opening nights where we gave away free food, I never made more than $30 in one night. And, that $30 was just a very lucky night for me. I WAS averaging $5 a night. I usually got to work, set stuff up, MAYBE got one table and then the manager would cut me around 7:30 p.m. and I went home. I had two tables on like maybe 2 or 3 nights, but for the most part, I either had zero tables or one table and then I'd get sent home. I had to drive 30 miles to get there and I had to drive 30 miles to get home. The food was great. It really was. But, unfortunately, the word hasn't gotten out and I don't think it's going to survive. How can anyone survive on that salary? We made minimum wage, so we at least got a tiny little pay check every other week, but that was it.

To top things off, I am like really pissed off about a few things. There was like 3 nights where a large party would come in. And, if a large party comes in you are guaranteed a decent night because we add 18% gratuity. So, of course, this is where the whole favoratism bullshit comes in. During training, the manager was totally hitting on this girl, Bridget. I couldn't stand her. After work, the whole staff went out drinking a few times and Bridget and the manager were hanging all over each other. I wasn't there, but,this is what I heard from several people. He's married too. Slimeball. Anyway, apparently they left together after getting wasted at teh bar and word on the street is that they were probably fucking. So, of course, everyone noticed that he was giving her the best sections in the restaurant and he was giving her the best schedule. She kept getting like Friday and Saturday nights and I was getting fucking Monday and Tuesday. He also gave her those large parties, with the guaranteed money. And, the last night that I was working a big party came in and he gave it to his friend that helped him open the place. Like, I came in at 4 to open and we do a rotation, so I should get the first table. Well, it was a reservation, so we knew about it before we opened. So, technically, it was the first table. But, alas, he tells his buddy to push four tables together and set it for 12 people. Even though, I was first in the rotation. God, I was pissed.

So - last straw - I filled out a vacation request form 2 weeks before I went to L.A. and when the schedule comes out, he schedules me for the days I requested off. Fucking moron. Can't read obviously. As soon as I saw the schedule, I called him and he took me off those days, but he wouldn't give me any more days. Like, I was hoping to work Friday or Saturday or both and he said he was sick of changing the schedule, so it was staying that way. Well, whatever, it's certainly not my fault that he can't write a schedule and that he had to keep changing it - it's bullshit! I can't do it anymore. I'm spending more money in gas then I'm making. Too much wear and tear on the car and not enough money coming in. So, once again, I'm jobless and searching...

Any suggestons kiddies??

I'm Back!

Back from Los Angeles!

I totally want to do a trip report for you guys, but I want to put up some pictures and I don't have them right now - left the camera at my mom's house.

Anyway, we had a blast. Hope everyone is having a nice week. Home sweet home. It's nice to be back in Vegas.

More to come tomorrow. Goodnight!!
