The Darkside Is Stalking Me!

Friday, February 01, 2013

Don't panic! I mean that I now seem to be the "proud" owner of a iPod Nano. And by Darkside I mean Apple. I don't do Apple. I think Apple suckth. I liken them to the Darkside (Star Wars reference here!) But I always take part in the Wellness Program at work. You get so many Wellness Points during the year and you name goes into a drawing for all sorts of stuff. I made Silver, Gold, and Platinum levels this year (last year I only got as high as Gold, only Gold and Platinum gets into the drawing). Last year I won a Stations Casino gift card for $150 for Gold and four Movie passes (two for each level). Hubby and I used it all year long for going out to dinner once in a while (hubby likes the Buffet). So this year I was in for both the Gold and Platinum drawings. I just got the email from corporate Heath and Wellness that I won an Apple iPod Nano. Thus I feel like The Darkside is stalking me! emoticon One of my co-workers won a $150 Amazon gift card. I wonder if he'll trade with me? Oh and I have to pay TAXES on the dayum prize! Last years cost me like $43 in Fed Taxes! Note to self: Ask our Tax guy if I can claim that! emoticon

So it's TGIF!! TGIF!! and I couldn't be happier about it. Well I could be...it being TGIF AND if we would have won the Lottery. But we didn't so I'll just be happy it's TGIF.

The whole crock pot chicken didn't work out as [planed last night. Hubby got home to find that the crock pot didn't switch to Warm. When he tried to take the lid off (after pulling the cord on it) the handle broke off the lid. I was able to savage some of the chicken but the thighs on the outside edge were burned. Hubby refuse the offer to eat any of it, so I made him rice, roast beef hash (canned king), and fried eggs. I wasn't to admit defeat and ate the two thighs that were in the middle of the crock pot and thus NOT burned. I had then with some shredded hashbrowns. But now I have to find a new crock pot this weekend. emoticon

Eating today has been the same today as it always is..at least during the day at work. Dinner is once again a what ever I feel like cooking tonight. I got my workout in. I even got to use an elliptical today! emoticon So I did my 50 mins and felt good about it. emoticon

So that's it for this last TGIF of Jan. Have a great weekend everyone!

And now some random funnies for Friday:

    emoticon I like the Health Program at work, but it kind of Stinks -- A Lot! -- that you have to pay Taxes on the Prize.

    emoticon Happy Crock Pot Hunting!!

    Congrats on your prize. With the iPod you'll be able to put on some music to exercise to or load up the SparkPeople radio podcasts to listen to away from the computer.
