Josie's Potpourri*

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.

Play smart.


*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.

I will kick your ass!

Grange95 said...

If your office party featured lamb and Perrier Jouet champagne, you better appreciate your boss! Jealous here ...

Josie said...

Grange, I do!! He rocks. After having a bad year, we are projecting a very profitable year to come, and he always shares. I failed to mention I also got a very generous xmas gift.

What Waffles said.

Josie said...

Well, my teammates are willing to help me double my full tilt balance. Thank you guys!!!!

No effing way either of you have a chance heads up.

Schaubs said...

So you just do the opposite of what Hoy picks?

Fade Hoy.

Doesn't Hoy pick using the spread anyway?

Josie said...

Yes he uses the spread and the league I am in does not. But his picks (which were opposite mine last week) won, regardless of the spread. Pretty effing good if you ask me. (more like miraculous but whatever)

Not sure if I'll go with his picks, but more information is always a good thing. Information = power

Hammer Player a.k.a Hoyazo said...

Yeah I don't know what I'm doing with the football picks, Josie. Just on a bit of a run lately. Nothing good will come of you paying any attention to my picks. If you're in first place in your pool or whatever, I would go with whatever has been working for you, not my random guessing.

SirFWALGMan said...

Hoy is the new cooler.

Josie said...

Hoy, are you sure your an attorney? Your comment, being very un-egotistical, would leave me to believe otherwise. :)

I just want to compare!

Wolfshead said...

What Grange said. While more a Bollinger or Krug man myself I still have a bottle of P-J left from my days of stocking bubbles. And since I just bought a couple bottles of Iron Horse for New Years and saw what that's going for these days I can imagine the prices of the good French stuff these days. Appreciate that boss.

Josie said...

Wolfie, as I hope you know, I appreciate all old geezers. :)

SirFWALGMan said...

Have you read Hoy's Blog Josie? He has Egotistical down pat.

SirFWALGMan said...

When we doing HU Battle? Mortal Combat! To the death! (On the Poker Felt). I want to crush you soon!!! heh.

Josie said...

Waffles, nah I haven't read it much - been meaning to read his posts about middle pairs but haven't yet.

You want to crush me huh? All I can say is 94th out of 97. :P
