Flash: Why does your poster keep sliding down my closet door? Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery slowly….

 


 

 

Superman: Why are you such a complete and utter douchebag? Also, did you know you were invented by a Canadian? Yeah, stick that up your American Flag Background!

 

 

 

I know those are only two questions, but that’s really all I can think of right now. I’m sure I have more. And when I think of them, I will write them down.

Also, I don’t think Boston Part 2 will be up, because I’m just too goddamn lazy. And the Silly bandz thing stopped because I only had one and it was rolling around on my wrist and wouldn’t stay in place. I need more then one. So that will be continued later on.



{February 25, 2011}   Boston Hotels, Part One.

So for work we took a trip to Boston, to see the hotels that we sell there. It was a really fun trip. We had to leave at 6:30 in the freakin’ morning. But it was fun. This blog is going to be mostly pictures. And some things about the pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So we had to drive to meet the rest of the people going on the trip with us. Of course, we got lost. This is the boys trying to figure out which way to go.

This is the Limo we drove down in. It’s so funny watching people’s faces when we drive by them. Everyone would stare. Some kids would point. It was funny, we were going through an intersection and the window was down a bit, and one kid was like “Are you a star?!” He was adorable!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mistah J inside our limo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And Mistah J again on my bed. That was my hotel room. King sized bed. It was only me in the bed, so I slept on the very left side, and the pillows took up the rest of the space. I do NOT need a king bed EVER.

So these things are left on the bedside table for all the guests. They’re free. Now, behind the water, if you notice the Batman Comic Book? So if you join the Kimpton InTouch program at Kimptonintouch.com, you fill out a profile, and there is a spot to say what you like. I, of course, put Batman, and yes, I got a Batman comic book. Not, they don’t always do these things. It depends on how much notice they get. But yeah, like 85% of the time it’s done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

More of my room. It was a bit small, but nice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joker with a plate of wings. When we went to meet the Concierge, and some of the people who work at the front desk, they gave us a bunch of appetizers from the menu of their restaurant, The Ruby Room.

This is the Ruby Room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The outside of the Onyx Hotel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And we had Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese. It was SO good! I have to find a recipe to make it.

These are the Double Double rooms in the hotel. They’re pretty nice. I certainly could have done with a double bed!

TD gardens where everything sports happens is literally across the street from the hotel. You come out of the hotel, walk right for about 2 minutes, and cross the street. There it is!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And we had a little meeting at the hotel, getting to know some of the people who worked there and such. They set us up in the parlour room and fed us junk. lol

 


This is only part one. There are more pictures I took, but I need to go through them. There are two more hotels we haven’t seen yet. And the Cloud Nine Suite. I will be blogging them in a bit!



Well I’m heading over to BAWston tomorrow. We’re driving over on the bus. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I know it’s going to be boring. I think I’ll sleep a lot… But I’m not sure.

I’m pretty much packed. We’re only going for three days, so I don’t have to bring a lot. I know the most of my things will be my blanked and pillow. My blanket’s in the wash right now. I’m scared. I never washed it before. It’s a kind of fleece, I’m afraid that it’s going to get all matty. We’ll see I guess.

If it does get ruined, I always have my Batman snuggie to bring.

Ugh. I’m so…. bored/tired/lazy right now. I know there’s stuff I should be doing, but I just don’t want to get up and do them. I bought that movie/show Alice this weekend. It’s like a modern day ish take on Alice in Wonderland. I think it was a made for TV movie, and it’s like 3 hours long. It was in two parts. Anyway, I keep thinking I should put it on, but I’m just too blah to get up and go over there.

I think I’ve decided to go back to Ottawa and enrol in American Sign Language part time. It’s what I applied for first when I was applying for colleges, only it was in Nova Scotia, and they didn’t accept me. Bastards. I’m glad though, because then I wouldn’t have gone to Ottawa for Theatre.

But I think I’ll go back to Ottawa and try there. It’s only a part time course, so I could get a job as well.

A lot of things have been happening with friends lately. Some I can’t speak of, because I’ve been asked not to, and some I already have spoken of. I feel really bad, because I don’t always know what to say or do. And in both situations, I’ve never had the same or similar experiences. So it’s difficult to relate. Sometimes I feel myself getting a little….. Selfish, towards them. I donno.

I know I should be doing some research on the hotel… I was told I didn’t have to, but I feel like I should know something about it. Apparently the people at the hotel really love people who ask questions. They’re going to hate me then, because I hate talking to people. I think they only question I’m going to ask is “Where’s the nearest Comic Book store?” I could probably just Google Map it. I’m sure they wouldn’t know.

So I suppose that’s it for now. I’ll be bringing my Computer and Camera with me. So When we get a chance at night, I’ll be on, updating about my trip and putting up a few pictures. I plan on taking a lot.



{February 18, 2011}   BOSTON! Run!!

So it turns out my stress over the past few days was completely unnecessary.

So the day before the big client came in, I was told that I was chosen to answer any questions they may want to ask the agents, and that they’d be listening to some of my calls. And then I got the always reliable “Act natural” comment, and a “Don’t let them know we told you, but don’t lie”

Those words shouldn’t occupy the same universe, let alone the same sentience. But it turns out the client didn’t even leave the back room except to piss and eat. So I came to work yesterday at the point of tears over the stress of thinking that /I/ was going to be the one representing a company I don’t even have faith in /and/ having my mother yell at me all that morning before I left for work.

Honest to god, on the way to work, I was thinking “I hope the bus to Boston crashes and I’m the only one who dies.” Yeah, that was my thought process.

Which really surprises me, now that I think back on it. You see, I’m not the type of person to get stressed. I’m a laid back, shrug it off kinda gal. All through my life, School, college and work, I’ve been the type of person to say “Eh. If it’s not done, then it’s not done.”  I’m not the type to let things bother me. So I don’t know what happened these past few days.

Maybe I’m just getting old. That’s possible.


So, I’m going to Boston to work on Tuesday with some other Agents. We’re going to have a look at the properties in Boston.  We’re staying at the Onyx Hotel in Boston, and viewing the Nine Zero and Marlowe. I’m really excited. I get to sleep in a King Size bed! But at the same time I know it’s going to be so boring. We’re only going for three days, instead of four. Which sucks, because that means we have to do everything in ONE day instead of Two. So We’ll be in Presentations all freakin’ Wednesday.

^My room!^

It will be really nice to be able to see what I’m selling. And to know the real information, because the shit in the system is pretty much 100% wrong 90% of the time.

I’m hoping to get a goldfish in my room too. Yeah, they do that. It’s called the Guppy Love Program, and it’s PETA approved! Yay!

So, I will be blogging all about my trip. I’m going to take my computer with me, and I’ll be posting pictures as well.
