Weekend update

Friday I had a meeting with my Marketing Director, and we agreed to try a conventional marketing approach for now instead of sales reps. I called C and asked how much he would charge to design my logo, and he said he wouldn't and that he was excited to do it, and flattered I would ask. For those of you that watch the OC, there was a band featured on last week's episode, and they flashed a picture of the album cover. It's C's artwork. Hooray for C! and also for Tally Hall, the band featured.

I placed my soap in my Friend Luis' floral shop, located in Ramona, California. It's called Teunis Floral. If you're ever in the area, go there, and buy lots of stuff.

I have decided to spend at least 30 minutes every day on Bubbly Creations stuff. I think it's time for me to be more devoted to my business.

Saturday night, on my way home from Harbucks, I missed my highway exit. Sigh. I will know soon, I hope, if having a second job is even worth it. I have to close both nights I work this week, which means I'm scheduled until 12:15, and I have to be back at work at 8 am. Last night I may have accidentally hurt someone's feelings. I hope she will forgive me. Sometimes, people don't take me right when they don't know me, and they don't know me there yet. Meanwhile, I will be more careful.

Last night a woman came into the store with a tiny dog tucked into her jacket. I would like to know why it is acceptable for her to bring in her tiny dog, but joe schmo can't bring in his rottweiler. Seems to me, dog hair is dog hair. I wanted to send her out of the store, but I have to be nice. She and her friends stayed a long time with that dog in the store. I think, that dogs should not be considered fashion accessories, and neither should they be brought into restraunts. (with the exceptio, of course, of helper dogs. this was a helpless dog. really.) It's an animal, not a necklace. I see them everywhere. Sure, they're cute, but imagine the looks of horror I would get if I carried my pet snake with me into restraunts and to the mall. (I no longer have a pet snake, I'm trying to make a point here) People would flip because they're "scary" but they don't shed hair and they don't make noise, and they rarely bite. funny how there is a double standard. I think the legislation should be upheld that dogs do not belong in indoor public areas, no matter how cute they are or how well they tuck into a purse, unless that area has been designated a pet friendly zone.

I am working on a website listing the places that animals are allowed to go. I used to take my dog (Porkchop the Pitbull) to the bank. They loved seeing Porky come in...I guess they figured no one would try robbing the place with her around. Porkchop would stop a robber, too.

If I ever open a restaraunt, I will allow dogs, as long as they have a leash. Also, there will be a required 20% tip if my staff has to clean up dog messes.

bvdiu: the forgetful act of not putting a doggie-diaper on your pet in my shop.

In a situation where pets are Welcome, I do not have a problem with them in there. If I had a retail outlet, that would mean that I would need to be there, which means that my dog would be there, which means I can have a dog.
I don't question pets at PetCo, because they are welcome there. but when there is a sign on the door that says "no pets", I don't think accessorie dogs should be allowed.

As someone who is allergic to many animals, I have to say it bugs me when I go somewhere that pets aren't allowed and they are there. I should be able to sit and have a Chai Latte without dealing with my sneezing and watery eyes. Just my opinion. a-chooo!!!!!!

I forgot to mention, my restaraunt will be cigar-smoking-required. If you enter without a lit cigar, you will be given one, complimentary. Of course, the prices of my food will more than make up for it.
