Chivalry is dead…. Take me back….

I feel in love with A Bronx Tale when I was a little girl. I feel in love with Calogero’s life and how much he learned from his father and gangster friends. There is a moment in the film when he takes a girl on a date. He was told of she was one of the lucky ones then she would reach over and unlock the door for him. I remember as a child that one day I’ll unlock the door for that one special guy.

The issue with that story is that guys do not give a girl a chance anymore. They barely even open the car door when they come and get a girl from her home. Men even ask a girl out on a date by a text message.

It is as of men have decided to become a bit lazy in their dating techniques and I blame this on the women. We as women need to set the standard on that first date so that men know we are not playing around. I am no dating expert but opening the car door is a very nice gesture.

Receiving a phone call rather than a text actually brings a huge smile to a girls face. You may not see it but I guarantee that she really appreciates it. You can not hear an emotion through a text but you can tell when someone gets excited through a mere phone call. It only take a few minutes to search for that number and hit the call button.

I don’t know about many women but I would love my car door to be open, my chair pulled out and a phone call here and there. Hey I’d return the favor by reaching over and unlocking your door. I just miss the old era when men were men and went out of their way to woo a woman. If I were woo’d it would give you that one check on my list.

A compliment here and there would feel amazing. Trust me I compliment all my friends and they love it. Also, listening is a million times better than just hearing what one has to say. I’m just throwing out a few suggestions to all you men out there.

As I watch all these films I cannot help but smile as I see how great men great their women or how they go out of their way to make sure she is happy. Don’t get me wrong guys I know you want the same thing in return and if you have the right girl then the respect will be 50/50. You’ll get just as much of a special treat as you give your lady.

Let’s take it back to the days where we’d get all dressed up and go to a nice place. We’d spend all night talking and drinking wine. Then at the end of the night the guy walks the girl to her door and gives her a small tap on the lips. He doesn’t try to get in her pants on the first date. If she’s that easy then she always only wanted one thing.

Take me back to when men were chivalrous and they got excited to go on a date. Take me back so I can at least experience my Bronx Tale moment.

Take me back….

West Palm Beach, FL

Today is my second day of a three day trip. So far yesterday was my best day yet and I don’t think it can possibly be topped off. We did a quick turn and layer over in West Palm beach for 16 hours.

When we landed I headed to grab a bite to eat at Rocco’s. I had an amazing chicken taco salad. Maybe it was amazing because I was starving but needless to say it was really good. When I went back to my room with time to spare I headed to the beach.

Today we had to do 4 legs before our Savannah, GA layover. The first two legs ran smoothly and there were no complaints of needy passengers. The crew I’m working with is pretty cool another are making today a bit interesting. On my last leg to Savannah a young man got on the speaker phone and proposed to his girlfriend while we were in the air.

The proposal consisted of him singing a song to her and then getting on one knee to propose. She was so happy, well they were so happy. She of course said yes and their faces glowed the rest of the flight. It was a beautiful moment that I was glad to be a part of and allow the young man to do.

Now I’m in Savannah about to get some rest. Tomorrow is another work day except I get to head home for just one day.

I’m a sucker for beaches.

Yeezy he laid beats…. No sins as long as there’s permission….

No matter how arrogant and cocky he can be at times, you have to give it up to Yeezy. Kanye West’s feel for music is deep and his music is always loved by many. He can create the best beats and his rhymes are just as good. I can see why he and Jay are best friends. They bring out the best in each other lyrically.

His 30 minute music video was by far the best video I have ever seen. He joined every song in his album into a mini movie.

Do your thing Yezzy! I am not complaining.


Billings, Montana

Yesterday we landed in Billings, Montana. I didn’t expect much from this place except maybe sitting by the pool. There was one dilemma, there was no pool in the hotel.

It was a dead zone in Billings. Absolutely nothing to do and trust me we searched for something to do. One of the crew members and I headed out for a walk after many glasses of wine. As we walked everything was closed, maybe because it was a Sunday.

It was hot out and it really bummed us out that we weren’t able to just lay out and soak up some sun. We saw there was a casino so we headed in there to see if possibly we could do something. Hey maybe even win some money. As we walked in we walked right out. It was a empty! The casino was the size of my house and maybe only 3-5 people in there.

I bought a scratch ticket thinking I might win something considering everyone always wins money in small towns. Unfortunately I did not win a dime.

If I had stayed longer I would have probably headed out for a hike because the mountain views are amazing and a workout is much needed.

Why don’t you realize…. Slow down….

Just finished watching 13 Going On 30 and I forgot how much I enjoyed this movie. I bet not many have seen it because it is sort of a chick flick and it is more towards the romantic comedy department.

Watching this film made me realize that there is no point at all in rushing to get older. Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses, enjoy what life is offering you this very moment.
