The things you find on myspace

I was browsing around on myspace and came across this on a bulletin (thanks to "The truth"). I'm not sure who these seven bartenders are, but they had some accurate observations.

Seven New York City bartenders were asked if they could determine a woman's personality based on what she drinks. Though interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts.

The results. If the woman drinks:

1. Drink: Beer
Her Personality: Causal, low-maintenance; down to earth.
His Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool.

2. Drink: Blender Drinks
Her Personality: Flaky, whiny, annoying; a pain in the butt.
His Approach: Avoid her, unless you want to be her cabana boy.

3. Drink: Mixed Drinks
Her Personality: Older, more refined, high maintenance, has very picky taste; knows EXACTLY what she wants.
His Approach: You won't have to approach her. If she's interested, she'll send YOU a drink.

4. Drink: Wine (does not include White Zinfandel)
Her Personality: Conservative and classy; sophisticated yet giggles.
His Approach: Tell her you love to travel and spend quiet evenings with friends.

5. Drink: White Zinfandel
Her Personality: Easy; thinks she is classy and sophisticated, actually, she has NO clue.
His Approach: Make her feel smarter than she is... this should be an easy target.

6. Drink: Shots
Her Personality: Likes to hang with frat-boy pals and looking to get totally drunk... and naked.
His Approach: Easiest hit in the joint. You have been blessed. Nothing to do but wait, however, DO NOT make her mad!

7. Drink: Tequila
No explanations required - everyone just KNOWS what happens there.

CBS Fashion Rocks

sorry about what I call an "abstract"'s all I got...

I journeyed to the CBS Fashion Rocks show last night in NYC..If you are planning on watching it tonight and don't want to spoil it, then don't read this. Actually I'm not telling you anything that isn't in the promo ads, so read away!

It was a mob scene to get in (like most of these events are), we finally entered and stood in line to get a drink. Right as we got to the bar, they closed the bar. Awesome. I needed a drink so very badly. I lingered until the manager left and the nice bartender served me up two vodka's on the rocks (what? I said I needed a drink). Elton John was the curator of the fashion/music festivities. All in all, I was pretty impressed with all the artists there. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Christina Aguilera, Kanye West, Nelly Furtado, Pussy Cat Dolls, Scissor Sisters, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Bon Jovi (I"m sure I'm forgetting someone). Oh yeah, and Fergie with the Black Eyed Peas, who actually put on a great show.

All I have to say that it is a good thing this show isn't live. The stage changes were a little too time consuming and in excess. The show lasted over three hours (thank goodness to all of you with tivo)...Although I'm sure the editing will condense it to make it a seamless show. There were a couple of mishaps (like Drea de Matteo flubbing her lines and they had to do retakes..)

Wait...I forgot to mention anything that pertains to this blog. Ummm, the after party had really great margaritas served on a bar made of ice. The bartender was great. I told him a needed a drink badly and he got my drift (I could tell we were on the same page). Anyways, I don't always "need drinks badly"...just an FYI (mom).

Timbaland didn't talk much but he tipped!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Timbaland, best known for being a hip hop producer, visited a NYC midtown hotel bar the other day. He didn't speak much and sort of just made "huh" noises to the server while she presented them with a $145 bottle of wine. He didn't speak much to the guy and two girls that accompanied him. The bar comped the wine out of generosity and he left a $45 tip (props to T because most celebs that get comped just walk out). He then drove off in his $350,000 Maybac by Mercedes and left behind a trail of fans.

Thanks to beautiful JL for the tip!

Waitress gets tip of a lifetime

This made my morning.

By Dean Jacobs/Tribune Staff
Juli Remsey has three loves in her life — her children, Jenn, 16, Jami, 13, and Jason, 11. OK, maybe there is a fourth — sports.

As a single mom, going to her children’s sporting events fills her life.

“We bond through sports,” she said.

She and Jason had a special bonding experience Saturday, thanks to a customer where Juli works, Martini’s restaurant in downtown Fremont.

A few weeks ago, she was sharing with the customer her son’s interest in Jaycee football. The customer asked if she had ever taken him to a Nebraska game.

“A single parent on a waitress salary, man, I don’t think it’s going to happen,” replied the waitress with 25 years experience.

Jason Remsey and his mother, Juli, of Fremont enjoy the Nebraska-Louisiana Tech game Saturday afternoon in Lincoln. Juli, a waitress at Martini’s in downtown Fremont, was given the tickets as a tip from one of her customers so she could take her son to his first Husker game. - Dean Jacobs/Fremont Tribune
A couple of weeks later the same customer returned to have a cup of tea. After he left, Juli went over to clean the table and found a white envelope. In it she found two tickets to the Nebraska-Louisiana Tech game with a note attached: “Have a great time at the game.”

“I started shaking and almost crying when I opened up the envelope,” Juli said.

She was barely able to contain herself when she picked up Jason after school.

“It was killing me not to tell him right away,” she said.

Once in the house, Juli sat Jason down at the kitchen table for a talk. She eased the pre-teen’s concerns by saying it was time they spent a Saturday together. With that, she slid the envelope across the table and the tickets popped out.

“No way, Mom. Are these real?” he asked.

They were. On Saturday, Juli and Jason joined the thousands of other Nebraska fans inside Memorial Stadium.

“It was pretty cool,” Jason said of his first game. “I didn’t know it would be so loud.”

“My friends know my kids are my life, so for someone to do something like this for me is beyond words,” Juli said.

“We’re just so grateful, maybe this is God’s way of showing there’s still good people in the world,” she added.

Girl 1: "Isn't that the guy from Jackass?"

Girl 2: "Ya."

Girl 1: "Why isn't he wearing a shirt?"

Girl 2: "Because he's a jackass."

Being Denied As A Celebrity

First it was Tara Reid, now Paris Hilton. Paris was denied entry into NYC's exclusive Bungalow 8 last Thursday after the VMA's. She was accompanied by dirty mouth Brandon Davis, who was also denied I assume. It has been a rough couple of weeks at the door for certain celebrities. It's OK Paris, the first time I got denied I was pretty upset too. However, Ms. Reid, you can't be caught on video completely trashed outside a club one week (that was aired allover the blogosphere) and then show up the next week at the same place and be surprised that they don't part the sea for you. Remember, these are bars with strict rules and regulations by the government.

Watch Tara Reid get denied in the first video (at Hyde in L.A.) and then click on the link to watch the one the week prior. Maybe after watching the second one she'll realize why she didn't get in...

Hey. I've got an idea! Why don't you girls (yes, you Tara and Paris) become cocktail waitresses at the clubs? Then, you'll never have a problem getting in...It works like a charm!

Click here for the second video.

Celebrity Guess Who?

Today the celebrity guess who item is from Page Six

WHICH rapper who's uncooperative with cops is also uncooperative with cocktail waitresses? He doesn't like to tip...

I'm stumped and usually I'm pretty good at this....What do you think?

Man arrested for threatening waitress

This doesn't surprise this girl at all...

By Rob Daniel
Iowa City Press-Citizen

A man was arrested Friday night after he allegedly threatened a waitress at a Coralville restaurant.

Christopher Paul Huffey, 18, of Moscow, was arrested for second-degree harassment at 7:15 p.m. Friday outside of the Steak n’ Shake, 2806 Commerce Drive in Coralville.

According to police, Huffey passed a note to the waitress stating he would “beat her” if she did not bring him her tip money within two minutes. He later admitted to writing the note, police said.

He was released from the Johnson County Jail Saturday morning.
