Divas Do Dallas..a wrap up

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , , ,
This week has past in a blur and most of it consisted of a blue "hawaiian" drink... although last night our server Alejandro (Chris) gave me a special toxic drink that tasted like raspberry and tanqueray with a splash of soda and lime juice. I would like to commend the 21-year old who had to endure our daily evening binge drinking antics. I have to admit, that I probably had more drinks in one week than I had in a year...yet I was never quite plastered. I'm thinking they threw in more soda than top shelves in each glass! Okay, I ended up with 3 boxes of books and a crick in my neck! I swear they haven't changed out the mattress here since the Ford administartion. How the heck is that possible? I'm now going to have to figure where to put them all.

Well, to recap... the Hyatt regency sucked...the room was small, the bar and restaurant staff was autrocious, the food was over priced and the nightlife was non-existent...hence why the Divas took over the bar on a daily basis (much to the jealousy of those not in our organization)! Can you believe there was nothing within walking distance? Strategically placed around the hotel are a collection of bail bondsman...are they assuming the Divas would require that type of service???

Okay, it wasn't all terrible...I did experience Drag Queen Karaoke (made great friends with the queens and loved the $3 drinks!), danced with a Coyote Ugly, and dined at an overrated YO Ranch Steakhouse...Oh, I got to roll on the floor to a rendition of "Like a Virgin" with my girls and sang off key to everything from Bon Jovi to Abba! The real fun...I got practically raped by a Coyote who thought I was "cute" when I hopped on the bar and danced with them. It's true! She bent me over and tried to molest me..ONSTAGE..I have photographic evidence floating around! I did have a wonderful time at the Diva Dinner and would you believe I teared up!!!!

The highlights also included going to the publisher parties...Penguin had the best cocktail shrimps and apps! St. Martin's was intimate and had Cosmos to die for... Last but not least, Harlequin sure knows how to party! I got to boogey on the dance floor with NORA ROBERTS..that lady can really get down!!

Literacy siging was a memorable experience...I sold out of all my books and CDs...I got to meet wonderful authors and fans. I got to feel like an important part of the literacy program as we raised a little over $52,000 for the cause! Can't tell you how magical it is to help others.

This is a doozy of a post and I'm sure I'll divulge more craziness in the coming days when I get my head together. I haven't slept in my own bed since last Friday..which makes it 8 days ago...not ready to go back to corporate world yet. I'm more than determined than ever that this is going to be my year...

Life is certainly an adventure. I LOVE MY DIVAS! Miss you all already!

Thanks for a wonderful roundup there, Jax! Sounds like you had a fabulous time, and I'm very envious that I wasn't there...

Maybe one of these years I'll make it and we can hang out? :)

You had the same view in your room to the bail bondsman services. :):)

I really wanted to call the number on the rooftop billboard but a stratigic tree hid part of it. :)

Excellent round up.
I miss you too. :)

Would love to have a brew with you Portia! I ran into our buddy Adam, Black Lace editor, a few times but didn't have a chance to have a drink with him. :)

Lara, I could have given you the last few digits! I wish you were in LA! I hope not to go through Diva withdrawals...

ROFLMAO! I will never forget that. The way she bent you over I swear I'd have to contact her in a year for a paternity test!

Even with the near sexual assault and my ABC afterschool special experience with Feist, I had the best time ever!
