Ok, it wasn't really an award, but extra kudos for anybody who got the Christmas Story reference. Actually it was a jackpot.

Husband's away on business, so instead of sitting around on my ass last night avoiding everything I should be doing, I grabbed the food money and headed for our local indian casino.

Played blackjack for an hour and couldn't get anything going so I switched to video poker. Two hands in, up popped the Royal Flush. $5200 !!! Holy Crap!
I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Big bells ringing, lights flashing, everybody staring at me.

First thing they do is make you sign a tax form so Uncle Sam gets his share, and then I thought they were going to write me a check for an amount that big, but all they did was stand there and count out a huge pile of $100 bills. They had a security guard walk me to my car since everybody in the place knew I was a woman alone carrying a huge wad of cash.

What sucked was that I was all excited and it was too late when I got home to call my husband, so I sat around the house wired and excited all by myself. Still, $5200 is going to look pretty good in the Send Chris and Robin To Hawaii Fund.

Like all gamblers, I'm now fighting the impulse to go back today and give some of it back. :)

How cool is that?! I've never known anyone that hit big on something like that. Goodness knows, my parents try!

That is AWESOME!!! Put it back where the food money is kept and see if Chris notices. :D

WOW . . . and I was excited about the $72 I won playing Keno the other night. :) Definitely buy yourself something, and put the rest in the HI fund. I'll bet it was a lot more fun getting the cash than getting a check.

They just opened a LUSH store in my area. The kind of place where a bar of soap costs $14 and there's no way you can justify it to youself. I'm thinking this might be a good time for a guilt-free visit.
