This post is random, but so am I sometimes!
It was 104 freekin' degrees in Houston today- a new record! With the heat index, the "feels like" temp was 108!!
Bear with me a bit as I rant again about PrideHouston and the Houston Pride Festival. I read an article where the brain trust from the Pride committee were raving about their FABULOUS festival, with a special "latino" area, a "tranny" section, a health and wellness area, and a place where you can buy food and beer. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the point of this festival to bring everyone together? To put us all in one place so we can enjoy a sense of community, and learn more about each other? So WHY THE HELL would you create "sections" at a Pride festival?! And don't give them an "out" (pardon the accidental pun) by saying they are trying to make it easier to enjoy the festival by keeping similar attractions close together- the whole damn festival is only a block long!!! So, just to prove my point, I'm gonna hang my tranny ass out in the latino section all day. I'll show them!
We are getting ready for a "visit" at work. Now, for those of you non-retailers out there, "visits" are when a big whig comes in from the corporate offices to "review our business opporunities" and "see what we need from them to help drive sales." So, we work around the clock replacing light bulbs that have been burnt out for months, cleaning bathrooms with more than a bottle of windex, and putting every piece of merchandise in just the right place. So they can come in and say "What a lovely store! Great job! You don't need anything from us!"
Um, sir, a little payroll would be nice, so I don't have to work my executives around the clock to make this place look so good! Just sayin' !
Miss Ginger is really looking forward to the weekend!
