Thanks to The Bears, a check is on it's way to me. See email below from football commissioner:
just let me know how you'd like me to get you the loot...
i was thinking singles scattered along I-93
if you send me your mailing address, i can punch in an electronic check that should reach you 6-7 days after i enter it ... (same way adam got his winnings)
just let me know ... and remember other options include I-93, 128, Boston Harbor, Comm Ave, etc ...
In case you are unfamiliar with the Boston area, all the locations he mentioned are particularly windy and not the best place to be collecting many singles. :) Bastard. Of course, in his defense, I've been bragging and trash talking for coming on 4 years. Since I am tied for first place for the year, this may be the year someone takes away my reign. NO FUCKING WAY. I've been spending about 5 minutes (or less) on my picks lately and that has to change. Just for the bragging alone.....and the grand prize too. :) This means I need Hoyazo to post his picks at least 2 hours before the first game. Please!!!!!! I think checking my picks against Hoy's can give me a bit of an edge on those coin flip type of games.
Let's see....what else? Last Friday was the office holiday party, which I ended up coordinating. I went out on a limb by using a new caterer, and everyone loved the food. Below is the menu:
Lamb Lollipops with sweet pepper jam
Glazed cedar plank salmon with lemon herb sauce
chicken roulade with spinach, chevre, red pepper and creamy herb sauce
eggplant with veggie and breadcrumb stuffing
roasted fall vegetables
Apple cider salad with mesculin, apples, toasted walnuts, stilton and cider vinagrette (frigging delish)
rustic country rolls
apple cheese cake
gingerbread cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
and (30) bottles of very expensive french champagne. For the life of me I cannot remember the name of it....but I just checked the recycle bin! It was Perrier Jout. Ooo la la!
When 30 professionals get drunk, the big story certainly isn't the menu. We all started drinking at 1pm and went to the bar afterwards. What a hot mess! I'll get into details in my next post as I am in work at the moment.
Lastly, poker. I am looking to double my Full Tilt balance. How you ask? By challenging you to a heads up NLHE game. If anyone is interested in going heads up with Very Josie for $10+1 drop me a comment. First 3 people get a chance to get reamed by none other than me. And then I'll embellish about your loss on this here blog. :) Just kidding.....well maybe not.
*OMFG I actually had to google "potpourri" to learn the correct spelling of it. This is the same girl who won the 9th grade spelling bee! wtf! I am getting old.
