How Sweet Am I?

Guess who's on top this week?

My picks held up this week.  I got every pick correct, except my 1, 5 & 7, which means I have 69 points so far.   I'm ahead of SirFWalgman by 10 points at the moment and when if the Jets win tomorrow night, I'll have beaten Waffles by 15 points.  That's a big week.  I was trailing him for the year by 18 points before this week, so I couldn't be happier.

As far as JMan (Waffles' son), I must say his picks were pretty darn good, although he did a bit worse, as he's got 49 points, with only 2 left for MNF.  I thought his Indy pick was going to bite me in the butt, but Cinncy came through.  And who knows if JMan really made these picks.  Maybe Waffles decided he needed two chances to try to beat me.  Well both chances didn't work out.  Perhaps the wife will make an attempt next week?  Heh.\

As for Lucki Duck's Pick the winner contest, there are six of us remaining still as we all picked winners this week.  The majority went with Green Bay except for Wolfie and me who went with Pittsburgh.  I did this on Waffles' advice.  I was actually leaning toward Baltimore, who won anyhoo.

This week also helped my standings for the year in my pool.  I've moved up from 6th place to 4th place.  I'm 29 points behind first place now and 17 points behind 2nd.  Mama needs to take this down.  If I do it'll be four years in a row.   I just need another good week, erm, or two.

Enough about football.  Want to hear about a guilty pleasure of mine?

Guilty because it's expensive, and pleasure because.....well, one doesn't need a reason for pleasure does one?

This stuff is amazing.  I got a sample of it long ago, but never bought a vat of it because it's so expensive.  It's expensive but smells and feels so damn good and luxurious.  Vanilla, bergamot and sweet almond oil.  I'll assume you know what almond and vanilla smells like.  The best word to describe the scent of bergamot is exotic.  Mmmmm and it's on its way!

I ordered it from Sephora because it was on sale!  Woot!  33% off, which means I couldn't afford to not get it.  But me being on Sephora never ends well.  I ordered everything I wanted.  I don't exactly have buyer's remorse as I know I'll love everything I ordered but let's just say that my order from Sephora came to roughly the price of a kindle.  I will say nothing more, except if there were a Sephora's Anonymous Group I'd be attending.

Hey, if you're really lucky I'll take pics of my stuff as soon as it comes in! heh.

It was a poker free weekend, but it will NOT be a poker free week.  WPT is at Foxwoods this week and I want a trophy.  I'll be playing in a couple of events this week.  Stay tuned to read all about it.

Oh....and I've been seriously reconsidering playing in the ladies event.  Remember my sister's kinda semi-professional poker player friend, Mike?  He thinks I should play it and it would be a perfect environment for me to win.  Must think on it.  The one and only ladies event I ever played was like 6 years ago and my play is so much better now.....why not play against a field that does not play particularly well?  And I wouldn't need to wear a poker uniform!  Something to think on.

Play smart.

Bergamot = the scent of Earl Grey tea.

Josie said...

@gary, Hmmm, you think? Some teas are flavored with bergamot but not early grey.....bergamot is more citrusy and spicy.

Josie said...

@ gary, I'll scrub up and let you sniff me when it comes in. You won't be thinking "earl grey".

GL in the football contest -- cream rises to the top they say.

Also, GL at Foxwoods. *jealous*

Josie said...

@mojo - ty, but jealous? I'd trade places with you in a heartbeat - unless I read it wrong, you're going to a world series game! Talk about jealous!!!!

How does that stuff go with chocolate peckers?

Josie said...

What DOESN'T go with a chocolate penis?

You know wolfie, I still have that pick of me and my chocolate....you know....it may be inappropriate for the blog, but I'll show you all the pictures in AC. See what priviledges you get for being my driver?

Gary said...

On the subject of tea, remember that old '70s song:

But I'm...
I'm hooked on Darjeeling...
High on believing
That you're my favorite tea...

But I'll still take the sniff offer.

Josie said...

Um no, don't remember that.

You will not regret the sniff.

Memphis MOJO said...

Yes I'm going to the baseball game, but I want it all like someone else I know.

Beside the Earl, oil of bergamot is an essential oil from a orange tree thought to be crossed to lime or lemon.

You can get an ounce on Amazon and a little goes a long way. There are smaller sizes and it is a scent for other beauty aids listed there.

@mojo...can't say I blame you. Damn you know me well!

@ken...never thought of getting pure bergamot oil. Think it would be heavenly in a bath, and much cheaper than the cream I just bought, which is normally $36 but was on sale for $24.
