poetic justice

i always go next door and eat when i get off work. i keep planning to stop eating in the middle of the night like that, but dancing makes me hungry. and anyway i don't know if the idea of eating late at night being super unhealthy really applies to people who get off work at 2:45am. i guess it's supposed to make you fat? well i'm not gaining weight from it, and i don't like going to bed hungry. so whatever.

my point though is just to tell you something funny that happened.

this cook next door has been getting overly friendly with me. kind of too familiar or something. well tonight he really went too far. i was eating a plate of tinga (have you had it? it's my favorite thing: chicken stewed with chorizo) with chips and guacamole. it was super delicious, but when i dipped a chip in the guacamole, there was a hair in it. so i put that chip with the hair on the edge of my plate and was done eating. right then the cook reached across the counter TO EAT OFF MY PLATE (really?! you're going to take food off my plate like we're family, when in fact we barely know each other?!), and the chip he grabbed was the one with the hairy guacamole. it was so gross to watch, i feel kind of gaggy thinking about it now. but it was also kind of hilarious.

ok so tired. goodnight. xo

hi. this is a boring entry. so don't read it if you care to be entertained.

i really love my club, but i can only usually get two shifts per week there. and lately i've been thinking about how much more money i could have if i just worked one or two more shifts per week. i think about this pretty often, but am kind of comfy and lazy and i like having most days off. but it's time for me to work more. so i auditioned at a club that lots of girls seem to like, but i worked there yesterday and i didn't like it very much. it has a weird layout. too many seats at the bar, so everyone just sits there. boring.

i was there from 4-9, and it was soooo slow. luckily a regular from my other club came in and got a lot of dances. if he hadn't shown up, i would've made $60 for the entire day!!! i only sold a dance to ONE other person besides him, and made around $40 in stage tips over the course of five hours. i feel bad for the other girls who were working, none of them sold any dances all day. they didn't even seem to be ASKING anyone. they were basically working for minimum wage, but they all seemed to love their jobs? i don't get this thing where girls will work at a club that's considered "cool," or whatever, but where they don't make any money. it's baffling. they're all best friends at this club, so i guess maybe it's ok for them to go hang out with their friends for free.

i don't want to work midshifts there, so i asked the bartender how long it usually takes to get on thursdays and weekend nights there, and she was like, "well it just depends. a good way to do it is to come in on wednesday nights when (owner's name) is here. come kind of toward closing, because after we close we like to party and some of the girls will dance for him and his friends."

ohhhkay. so basically if i wanna get good shifts, it's advisable to come in and dance for an after-hours coke party with the owner and his buddies? ...i dunno. i'm just going to try it the old fashioned way of showing up for work, selling a lot of drinks and dances, and waiting it out a month or two. if that doesn't work i'll just try somewhere else.

after i got off work, i ate a lot of candy went out and drank too much. ew. i'm not drinking this month, march. i need a break. i was feeling so good for those sober 6 weeks i did. wish me luck on this, it's hard at first, then after a week or so it's easy and feels great.
