so, the only downside to the whole Mexican vacation? The people. Oh, not the very happy and loving life Mexican folks, and not the majority of the resort guests. The people in our tour group.
They were nasty. They bitched constantly. If it wasn't that the concerts (note the *plural*) were too short, it was that the floors were wet (we were at the beach!) or that the only food available at 3am was hamburgers (they had a *24 Hour* hamburger stand, y'all!) or that the concert artists didn't want to *gasp* hang out with them and get blind drunk until all hours of the night.
Now. Maybe it's just me. Maybe I should have higher expectations or something.
But you know, when I can go to Mexico and hang out at the beach for 3 days, I'm HAPPY. I don't need to be entertained. I mean, God knows they had free entertainment out the wazoo, over and above our own private concerts. They had fire dancers and cheesy vegas style shows and huge pools and a private beach...
What have people got to bitch about here?
We were talking about the sense of ownership and entitlement these fans had toward the artists, and about how creepy it made anything remotely meet and greet with the artists. Maybe it's because on a much smaller scale, I get that now, too, with people emailing me and demanding more of a story, or asking me to write something just for them. S0 maybe that's part of it. Maybe they just don't know that there is a line. You have a public eye job, you're giving up some of your privacy, I've never denied that. But it's still a job, and you should be able to get away from it to have supper or go to the bathroom ;)
I think I'll end on some good things...
I am no longer feeling like Montezuma hates me and wants revenge
I'm getting work done, slow but sure
I've been up before 9 two days in a row. Seeing as how I was insomnia girl before we left for vacation, going to bed at 2 and up at 8 is far better than bed at 5 up at 11 ;)
I have an appt to get new glasses. I want the same ones I have, as I love them, but I get to get sunglasses!
okay, back to work
