I was in charge of the exit-here-to-smoke door at The Windsor Arms where Smirnoff threw a party.  It was a fun shift, just really a lot of happy people.  And what a beautiful hotel… the cop I was chatting with said their High Tea service is a must.

This job really makes you appreciate the little things.  You end up daydreaming about your next meal, a little ledge to put your foot up on makes you happy for your lower back, when someone smiles at you that keeps you going for like an hour… generally life is reduced to tiny things.  I like this.december 20 2008

And oh, one more thing.  A hotel employee walked by and called me “stoic”, and when I got home (after my Big Mac) and looked up the meaning, I decided that’s one of my best compliments in a while. Thanks, dude.
