Prekop Really?

Ok, for those ladies seriously readers out there, it is an inside joke...but since it has been some time since I have posted and there are some gentlemen out there that wanted to see their names on my blog (although I told them that the names were hidden to protect the guilty, EH, boys will be boys), I thought I would write you all from sunny FL...yes, Orlando...yes, Disney Jail...yes, the humidity it about 200% outside....and YES, they do not sell gum in ANY store in Orlando. Why? You Ask?...because the Mouse (or as one friend calls him...the Rat) wouldn't like it and he is just that damn important. OH Orlando, little people everywhere, all hopped up on McDonalds and sugar waiting to see Buzz Lightyear or the Mouse or the Disney Princesses. Anyway, don't get me started on the parents and the kids issue in Orlando, not enough time or space and I would rant...

So once again, JZZRGRL is traveling for business. Still continue to be amazed at how few females there are in the technology world. We are in Disney Jail for a conference for the largest wireless carrier in the US (yes, I can hear you now). The carrier company actually has does have quite a few women in high level executive positions, but generally speaking the percentage is still around 85% Men/15% Women. BUT I MUST give out a ladies seriously shout out to the men and women of said wireless carrier company for their appropriate business attire. ALL SUITS, I cannot point to one man or woman who looked sloppy or inappropriate. SO GO YOU!

Ok, now for the gentlemen (Mr. Jobs, Mr. Bearcat (NOT STEELERS...BLECH), Mr. Rhode Island, Mr. A little over-served carrier sales guy and of course Hawkeye Time (who happens to be the 29 year old's boss, go figure) who kept me up until 1:45 AM (why do I never have enough sense to GO TO BED?)...Drum roll....ladies, what do you think? I should I bash on them? ....Actually, nah, these were gentlemen! Not a single one was inappropriate and all but one is married and not a single one bad mouthed his wife. And as for the fashion...I would give them a 6-7 in the casual bar wear attire. We had a lot of fun, it was silly and they complimented by shoes, so hey they can't be that bad, right? Boys will be boys and you can guess where the conversation went a few times, but hey all in good fun.

Ladies and gentlemen seriously, traveling for business can certainly be a GRIND, but if you take the time to enjoy each city ONE or TWO nights with drinks and dinner with fun, classy people, it can be less horrible. So this lady figures, life is short, enjoy the opportunities given...eat, drink, be merry and keep it classy...because you NEVER KNOW in this world when that guy at the bar that you met on a business trip will become your next boss (OR visa versa).

Cheers and CIAO BELLAS!
