I got wild this time, guys. Usually, I book my stays on Sundays or Mondays. This time, I said to hell with it and booked a Junior King Suite at the Troubadour Hotel the day after Christmas. Considering that was a Thursday, I don't think $242.92 after taxes for a suite in New Orleans is bad at all. Sometimes, you just need a vacation after a vacation if you know what I mean!
Jayne is the bar/restaurant on location. I was thrilled to see a live band was playing! Believe it or not, I also didn't go with my signature Tito's and soda with a lime. I ordered gin! I hate gin. It was the title on the signature drink menu that got me. Creativity, it gets me. Anyway, drum roll please. The title was "Jayne's Got a Gun." There's not much I find more respectable than a woman who's been through hell and isn't putting up with anyone's shit anymore. Okay, maybe I've just fallen in love with myself. I think Jayne has too. Go Jayne!
Once Jayne and I were through, I headed upstairs to Monkey Board. That's the rooftop bar. Amazing view, string lights, and an ex cop manager reminiscing on his previous fuck tard co-worker that gave him a DUI. I'm not making this up. In my opinion, he's much happier now telling stories to his Barbie doll looking employee. He never has to grow up.
Although, it would be really mature if bars started offering coffee. It doesn't make sense. Maybe I don't want a Red Bull. That's a lot of sugar. I'm more of a coffee type of girl, and sometimes a pick me up is seriously needed!
Anyway, I met a homeless man with standards. I had no cash so I gave him all my change. It was a lot. I could have knocked someone out with it. The motherfucker sits at my table and starts picking out all the pennies and giving them back to me. I don't think I ever regretted being generous in that moment more. Pennies add up. I bet a day's worth of pennies would buy gum. Pardon my French, but this is the ignorant mindset that keeps people homeless!
I'm praying for forgiveness as we speak. I'm blaming the hotel. They put a book in my room titled "Empire of Sin." How was I supposed to behave after that?
Oh, and don't forget to check out my YouTube vids. You can pretend I'm your girlfriend for free. You're welcome! https://youtu.be/SGepwXen7v4
