Miss Four Eyes Isn’t The Only One Who Can Be Epic….

I slapped one of the hotel’s “Closed for Renovations” stickers on my forehead as I walked through the lobby this morning.

The breakfast buffet faces the lobby.

Upon seeing me, an entire family of four almost choked on their breakfast. (Chocolate milk shot out of the father’s nose.)

It was awesome.

What do you think of that, young lady? Pretty epic, right?



Somebody has big, no, make that EPIC news. Take it away, Becca

Time to RSVP for Blogger Summit 2013!

In just about seven months, a black hole will manifest itself. It is the good, non-scary kind of black hole where people of the internet will converge a la reality. That’s right people, the date was determined (pretty much by a land slide) for the Blogger Summit 2013! Hold on to your long johns people. Mine are already packed.

Don’t forget to bring your chargers.

Jen has created a lovely official e-invite for the occasion and we are asking y’all to please RSVP if you are down like a comforter. To do so, just click here, and try not to have a stroke in eager anticipation. We want to herd as many bloggers as we can possible can into a farm of awesome for this event, and that’s where you can help. Please do us a favor and reblog, tweet, Facebook pimp, and take to the streets with megaphones to spread the word.


MEANWHILE, WITHIN THE PAGES OF THE BOOK OF TERRIBLE: I discuss what to look for when evaluating a bellman who isn’t yours truly.

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

    Ha! Well it sounds pretty epic to me 😉 of course the family was the crowning moment.

  2. MissTiffany says:

    Hahahaha, that is awesome. I can’t believe milk actually came out of the guy’s nose. Brilliant. I would have fell out of my chair laughing, I think.

  3. J.D. Gallagher says:

    I need one of those stickers some days.

  4. Hope you remembered to remove the sticker before you went home……….

  5. mairedubhtx says:

    Renovations in a hotel are enough to strike fear into the hearts of travelers everywhere. Shudder.

  6. Excellent, I want me one of them stickers!

    >It was awesome.
    – You’re a mean one, Mr.Hook. 😉

    I’m lucky I ain’t sipping anything right now. Else I’d be (reverse?) snorting, too. With laughter.


  8. TBM says:

    But Hook you’re perfect just the way you are. Of course getting some dude to shoot milk out his nose, well that’s just cool.

  9. Chocolate milk geysers. Now that’s worth spouting about.

  10. MissFourEyes says:

    You are awesome without even saying anything!
    Thanks for the link, partner! 😉

    Way back in the WayBack Machine, I worked at the front desk for a large hotel/casino here in Reno. The main towers faced valet and the bellman on one side and the buffet was on the other. Every time you describe your lobby, I picture mine. And, now, chocolate milk shooting from a gambling daddy’s face. 🙂

  12. Agreed. As epic as one can get!

  13. The Cutter says:

    Would have probably been more epic if the sticker was all you wore.

  14. Rohan 7 Things says:

    Lol, nice, you’d better get paid extra for your antics!


  15. Those stickers would be very handy not only on the forehead sometimes lol

  16. elenamusic says:

    Did you seriously do that? Scaring families, how dare you!

  17. Tom Merriman says:

    Lately, Hook, I feel like I should have a sign like that tattooed onto my forehead… only I won’t, as I don’t do tattoos!

  18. My job would be suited for such a sign too, alas. Well, I went through the E-vite process. Look forward to more news on the Bloggers Summit. At present, my attention is on my Kickstarter campagin. You can find it in Comics, entitled, A NIGHT AT THE SORRENTO AND OTHER STORIES. That’s Sorrento, as in Sorrento Hotel, the oldest luxury hotel in Seattle, thank you very much. http://comicsgrinder.com/2013/04/03/kickstarter-a-night-at-the-sorrento-and-other-stories-is-launched/

    So what body parts are you having renovated? Also, what is the Blogger Summit?

    • The Hook says:

      My brain is always evolving/under construction, Robin!
      As for the Blogger Summit, Becca and Jen – two of the cutest and most talented bloggers out there – are working feverishly to bring bloggers from all over together in one place to party their butts off!
      Sounds like fun, right?

  20. Jennifer says:

    It may not have been chocolate milk, but snorting none the less… simple hilarity is the best.

  21. Lady Lovely says:

    You my friend, are the man! I would have died laughing if I saw someone walking through a hotel like that! Next time take a video for us sweet cheeks!

  22. Those signs come in so handy. Nice work.

    Thank you lieber Freund schönes weckend.Gruß Gislinde

    I’m glad you enjoy your job, Robert! The sticker and family are great! And yes, the blogger summit! It’s very tempting. It happens right before my birthday (October 28th). And one of my best friends who is also a blogger on WordPress lives in Austin. You never know…

  25. After Twindaddy stopped working at Wal-mart with me, I took one of his old name badges and wore it…that way, if I did something to piss one of the customers off, it got blamed on a guy who didn’t work there anymore.
