M/Y Muchos Mas just called... she said the owner wanted them to hire someone today so she had to. She said she was really sorry and wanted to keep my CV on file just in case, she also said that she was very impressed with my resume and with our chat we had and she would definately pass my CV on to an other yachts if it was o.k. with me. She really sounded genuinely upset that she had to hire someone without even getting to talk to me on Monday. Damn. I guess I wont be jamming out to "In your eyes" by Peter Gabriel on my iPod any time soon. (wink wink Maria and Mom!) Oh well... I have a bad feeling that the other yacht will hire someone today too... I should have gone last Saturday instead of being scared to leave! Fuck!

I am really bummed out now. It's ok... I still have M/Y Wanderlust on the list... Do you guys remember that I worked on a sailboat with the same name last year? It was the worst job ever. The captain of this one sounds cool though. Hope I get that job...

And, in other bummer news, I got an email from my agent in Lauderdale telling me that the S/Y Avalon has hired someone. So that's off the list too. I may have really screwed myself by not going to Ft. Lauderdale sooner.

I am packing my bags. Trying to evenly distribute the weight between the two bags and carry as little in my backpack as possible.

Courtney called from Lauderdale to tell me that my room is all ready for me and she will pick me up in the Beemer... I could barely get a word in edgewise, she was talking a million miles an hour, walking the dogs on the beach on the way to the gym drinking a cappuccino! I was exhausted after talking to her! LOL But she said the apartment is walking distance to the area of town called Las Olas, which is like the main drag where all the shopping and bars and cafe's are. So, if I can't find a yacht I can always bartend.
Las Olas below:

I am still looking forward to being there but I am really bummed out about Muchos Mas, now I have to wait for the other boat to call me this weekend and let me know if he wants to meet me on Monday. I don't even have his email or phone number because my phone doesn't show me who's calling! GRRRRRR!

I am drinking a Dr. Pepper. I haven't had one in a while because they are pure sugar! I wish I had a couple dozen beers.

Need something to make you say "WTF?!?!" this morning?

Click HERE for the worst hotel(motel) in America! I am flabbergasted at the reviews!!! OMG WTF?! I got the link from the Upgrade: Travel Better blog. Whew! I can't believe there are actually people out there that behave this way! It's people like this Hotel owner that give the South a bad name. What a shet bag!

In other news: I am up SO early. I woke up at like 5:30am. But, I went to bed at like 10:30pm last night so it makes sense. I am usually up till 3 or 4am. It's almost 8 now and I think i will cook some pigs in a blanket at 8:30 or 9. Dad loves those. Unfortunately Dad's throat is starting to hurt him. The radiation is almost half over but it's finally starting to make it hard for him to eat because of the pain. Maybe I can make some gravy for him to pour over them to make them mushy and easier to swallow. Hmm... How do I make gravy? The white kind with pepper in it. I am guessing... Bacon grease (the number one ingredient in my life), flour, salt, pepper, milk. I will try it.

Fingers crossed that those yachts don't find anyone to hire today so I can have my shot on Monday!!!

You wanna see something funny?This is Kip. He is a Fennec Fox, and my new roommate in Ft. Lauderdale. LOL I can't wait to play with him!!!
