First it was Sue. She left us for some random BioTech firm. And now MONK! Are you kidding me? MONK, where are you?
There is a natural law on the body that requires us to get a minimum of 8 hours sleep a day. When we don’t get our sleep, our immune system tends to fail and we get seriously ill. With our endeavors, we have all sacrificed that whole overrated sleep thing. Sadly, our hard work had knocked Monk out and why now?
This has been the single most demanding week of our existence. More so than working on any festival we have done to date. The thing that is most demanding is that, Monk (our resident Organization Engineer) was out all week. Yes, I give her the business. Yes, she is “quirky”. Yes, she is an acquired intensity. But this enterprise is not the same without her. There I said it. She is an integral part of the team. She makes it possible for us to do what we do because she ties together all the ends. Actually everyone on the team adds a different ingredient to make Pinx go. Marketina, is best at collecting. Tweeta – did I mention she is now on the team – is a precise baker. Sue – she is on a milk carton, but we still love her – is Chef’s right hand. The Government Twins are great helpers. Wherever they can fit in or help us they are there. Those girls are the best. Then there is the Waterboy. The Waterboy is the ultimate hustler (the young man has 4 jobs including our enterprise as he continues his education). But even with all his jobs, he will be available at the drop of a hat. He has also introduced a few of his fellows to our operation: Ming and the Silent Pinoy. We will have more information about these two fellas as they do more with us. And last but not least there is the Director.
This week, Chef hired a Director of Catering. She has been a great help to us. Now we can take two jobs a day every day! We just may need that. The Director brings to the party experience and talent. Now she is not alone carrying the weight of the operation. Watch out world! It is on now.
The expansion into the west bay, south bay, and east bay has also been enhanced by a location in the North Bay. We will be working with our favorite Salon and Day Spa. Don’t be cynical…it was our favorite Salon before we started working with them. We are starting a pilot program where we will be providing our delectable delights on a weekly basis.
I would love to say more, but the sleep deprivation of the week has caught up to me. It is now time to get to bed. We start again at 6AM.
Life is short…eat something memorable.
