Quitting My Bar Job and Working Out My Ass

"We Raise The Bar On Raising Your Bottom" was the slogan on the cute little pink shirt I got to wear today while promoting Reebok's new EasyTone sneaker. 

A great job for models and actors is promotional work, and I find a whole lot during the summer time in New York. I quit my bar job last week after realizing that I was making just as much promoting. No stress, no stupid drunk people, no long hours, no staying up until 5 in the morning?!! No dealing with a brand new food menu and crazy drink menu and not enough bartenders on staff to make our drinks come out in less than 10 minutes making me look bad?!! Um. Yes. I will no longer be coming in. Thanks. Goodbye.

(Sorry just had to release some past frustration there...)

Of course I still had to deal with  people that don't speak any English, but now since I don't have to deal with money I can handle any foreigner!  I would come up to someone and give my awesome 30 second spiel on how the EasyTone sneaker shapes up your butt, thighs and calves while you walk, blah, blah, blah- only to get in return a blank stare and me realizing they understood not a word, as they promptly walked back to the tour bus.

I love it. I got to be at the south seaport which made the day even more enjoyable. I didn't get to keep the shoes I wore, in which I so secretly hoped I would receive. But that's okay. I'd rather have a pair or those Nike heels that feel like a sneaker! Have your heard of them?! They're sexy too. I got to find me a promotion for that...
