YES FINALLY. The idiots brilliant businessmen who own Silver have decided to reopen on February 13, just in time for my favorite holiday. Took them three months to decide to sell the building and relocate a couple miles east, since apparently it cost less to lease the new place than to renovate. It's not a bad move necessarily, though, since mutants seems to be snatching up housing on East Houston abandoned after Apocalypse. It's like a mutant Chinatown or Chelsea there. (I wonder what it'll become known for. Chinatown has cheap purse knockoffs and Chelsea has porn. Maybe cheaply produced porn?) Of course that means making nice with a new police precinct, which is a pain in the ass because it took forever to get the 5th off our backs.

Bah. It'll be nice to get a second paycheck again, though. My meager receptionist salary is not enough to sustain my luxurious lifestyle. (Hear that, Betsy? I need a raise!)

Angie, do you want to come to the framers' with me so we can look at how to hang up your tarot cards? I bullied the manager into making it a business expenditure, so we've got a decent budget for it, too.

My nightclub. Oh hey, weren't you looking for a job a little while back? We need new bouncers and bartenders. We had a bit of a staff shakeup after being closed for three months. (Also hi, I don't know if I've introduced myself yet. I'm Mark.)

Hey Mark. I'm Lil.

I picked up a few nights closing at Harry's Hideaway and things seem to be going pretty decent for me there but if you're short on staff, I could always help out on my off nights. Otherwise, I'm sure you'll see me around. I miss the club scene.

It would mean you wouldn't have to take on the 45 minute to hour commute.

Commutes don't bother me. Not having my own car/motorcycle does. That's something I'm planning on rectifying soon, though.

Come, check us out next weekend. It's awesome whether or not you work there.

I think I will if I have the time.

This would explain why there's a post-it note here stating exactly what Mark is *not* allowed to use his health insurance co-pays for.

Such as "Anyone named T-Bone is not a licensed pharmacist"

Whatever. He could totally get into pharmacy school if he just applied himself. He has better pain relievers than any "licensed" pharmacy sells, anyway.

Your connections intrigue me. You have earned yourself a company lunch. Bring your Rolodex.

I've been living in Manhattan since I was 17. I can tell you where to find just about anything, yo.

I forget, is T-Bone the "friend" of yours who helped you after you got shot, or another "friend"?

From: [identity profile] x-pressive.livejournal.com
I tried to make him a "friend" once when I didn't have any cash and . . . well, it didn't end well.

Oh yes. Yes very much, please. That way also I can bully negotiate a good price since framers always, always overcharge if you do not know how to tell them that no, you are not paying that absurd amount of money for that frame.

Please, you're asking me if I know how to haggle?

Date: 2009-02-04 04:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-tarot.livejournal.com
I think you can haggle, but would you know a high-quality frame that is worth the price tag over one that looks good but will fall apart in six months? I would.

They ain't gonna rehire someone like me. Sounds like I'm already being replaced.

Date: 2009-02-04 05:08 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-pressive.livejournal.com
You know they'd rehire you in a heartbeat if you ask.

From: [identity profile] x-icarus.livejournal.com
I want to but I just feel like I can't be around someone without the urge to gut em.

Maybe you'd be better as a bouncer, then.

I don't know. Bartendin's sorta my thing. Is.. was... I don't know.

You're mean. I should have asked Emma.

Sticks and stones, Mark. And yes, you should've but you didn't and my job is to always say no when someone asks for more money. It's what makes me such a good administrator.

How about I treat you to a mani/pedi at Bliss instead?

Well, I do really need some professional grooming before next weekend so I don't look like a hobo. I'm willing to negotiate.

Lovely. Come by my office later today and we'll discuss terms.

FINALLY. The whole of the dance department has been bitching about when it'll come back.

Better get there early. I expect a really busy night. (Oh, who am I kidding. The bouncers know you, they'll let you all in.)

Date: 2009-02-04 06:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-roulette.livejournal.com
Of course they do. I bring them such good business.

(Now if only they'd let me sneak a drink or two...)

From: [identity profile] x-pressive.livejournal.com
I wish. But I can almost guarantee there'll be cops everywhere and the manager is going to ride our asses to make sure we don't toe the line.

But on your 21st, it's all on me.

Excellent. Barring another megalomanical loon breaking any more of my bones on my birthday, I'll be there will bells on.

Fuck, even with a megalomaniacal loon breaking more of your bones you should go out. You only turn 21 once!

Friday the 13th is your favourite holiday? Is Friday the 13th even a real holiday, Tiger?

Valentine's Day, yo!
