Ok, let's make a deal...

>> Thursday, February 28, 2013

I never talk about my work.  But I'd like to share this with you.  I'm in sales, every year I negotiate service contract prices with my clients.  Every year I hear the same story from all my clients.  Here are a few examples:

HUGE Bank: you can't raise our prices.
Me: why not?
HUGE Bank: blablabla...tough economy...excuses...excuses that don't make sense... blabla
Me: ok, let's make a deal, I don't raise your price and you stop sending me emails about how you're lowering the interest % on my savings account for the 6th time this year.  Ok?

TAX Body or other: you can't raise our prices
Me: why not?
TAX Body or other: blablablaaaaa...limited budget...blabla....blaaaaa... excuses that make no sense...bllaaaaaa
Me: ok, let's make a deal, I don't raise your price and you don't raise my taxes this year.  OK?

Cosmetics Conglamorate: we want X, Y, Z service thrown in for free with this year's contract.
Me: you'll have to pay for the X, Y, Z service, it won't be free.
Cosmetics Conglamorate: but...blabla ... blaabla booohooooo waaahhh blaaaa
Me: ok, let's make a deal, I'll throw in X, Y, Z service for free to your contract and you send me free make-up for equal amount, I'll email you my list tomorrow.  OK?

My clients LOVE me!

Because disillusioned girl rappers are hot.  Although I don't support complaining without suggesting a solution.

Corner View: Potatoes with... EVERYTHING!

>> Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Yes, everything!  Even with champagne for BREAKFAST!  That's a fritata in my plate.  Yummy!
My theory on potatoes is very simple.  Just eat them!  Carbs?  Yeah ANDDDD????  Sophia Loren used to reply to compliments on her banging figure by simply stating: "Everything you see I owe to spaghetti."  Well I reply to adoring exclamations by thanking potatoes.  Well actually in my case, I can thank spaghetti, potatoes, steaks, and all kinds of other foods, I don't like to discriminate or give too much preferential treatment to any one food.  ;)

I really don't like it when people complain about their bodies.  Why? That's so boring and unproductive.  If it's something that can be helped and you want to help it, then do it, don't complain about it.  If it's something that can't be helped like your height or shape, then what's the point being unhappy about it!?

What makes you really beautiful and attractive is how you see yourself and your life.  Being happy is the one and only factor that makes you either incredibly attractive or not. Yes you should be neat and dress nice, these are basics, but what makes you HOT, sexy, beautiful, is the way you feel and act.

There is something to be said for the big fake "American Smile".  IT WORKS!  Force yourself into a huge smile for a minute and you will feel happy.  Idiotic a bit too, but happy nevertheless.

I'm militant about insisting on everyone being happy and if they're not I send them for a run around the block.

So yeah that's right, potatoes with everything!!!!
