The hundred-and-thirty-third day...

Wednesday, August 5, 2009
A few weeks ago, I found out that I was one of three finalists for the Spotlight on Excellence award at work. The awards ceremony was held today. It was pretty cool to be a finalist and know that my colleagues nominated and voted for me. I didn't win, but the winner was very deserving. He's a cool guy, and great worker and he has been with the Company for quite some time. So congrats to him. Is it wrong that I was a little saddened by not winning? I think I deserved it, but at least I got to the finals, right?

Anywho, I went to Au Bon Pain during lunch - I needed a little something sweet.

I opted for the delicious pecan roll goodness in the top left :)

I really wanted the monkey bread that they make, but I haven't seen it there in a while. I hope they haven't stopped making it, because it is delicious x2. I'll be honest, I also bought a cookie and some pita chips to bring home. That was the intention anyway - I ended up eating the cookie and brought the pecan bun and chips home to share - to the delight of Sis 1 and Sis 2. The cashier just looked at me when I approached her. I could tell that her jaw wanted to drop, but she regained her composure and quickly asked me if I would like a bag. The words to carry your ridiculous amount of junk food remained unspoken :)

And then, on the way back to the office, I had to pass this van - parked right in front of my building. They must have heard that I was buying too much junk food.


Apparently, they were handing out samples of the water yesterday and from what I've heard it tastes horrible. I think I'll stick with regular old H2O, thanks.

On a completely unrelated note, I am really sick of seeing this picture all over the place. I do not need to see a nude Terrell Owens all over the place. Seriously.


Have a great night everyone!

mmm junk food. I hate when advertisers relate their ads to my feelings haha.

Badass Geek

There is no place in this world for a nude T.O.

Ugh.

for the love of pictures

Hey Jeanette :) Me too. Don't they know that I just want to enjoy my yummy but bad for you foods in peace?

Hey Badass :) Thank you. Maybe if enough people band together they'll put some clothes on him :)

Have an excellent day!

Children of the 90s

I totally want a pecan roll now. Any food/drink with the word skinny in it is a) a marketing tactic and b)exists only to make us feel guilty.

for the love of pictures

Hey Children :) The Au Bon pecan rolls are pretty great, but the monkey bread is better :)

Have a great day!

Waxy

agreed on nude TO - I don't want to look at that either...but have you seen the show? It is good - and it is turning me into a TO fan! Yes, I'm surprised too...

The New Black

I've heard the same thing about that drink. I mix up Crystal Light with a bottle of water and I am good to go.

That TO shot is too much...as is his show. :)

Hello !!!!

Finally made it over here ... thanks for following, and for your nice comment on my photos over at the english muse ...

jonas :)

for the love of pictures

Hey Waxy :) I haven't seen the show, but I'm glad that it's interesting. I just don't need to see his tush as I'm walking to work :)

Hey TNB :) I've been trying the Crystal Light mixes too. So far, the only one I like is lemonade, but it is definitely better than having plain water all the time.

Hey jonas :) You are very welcome - the photos are really great. Thank you for following and commenting too!

Enjoy the rest of the afternoon!
