I have to blog quickly today because at 8:00, I'm taking the Jeopardy Online Contestant Test, which, if I do well, enters me into a lottery to audition for the show. I'm such a geek, but my parents called twice to remind us to do this so I'm taking it today. My husband plans to take it tomorrow, which is the day for the Central and Mountain timezone.
I rejoined my Weight Watchers@Work meeting because they needed me to help fill the meeting. As it was, we only had enough members because one of the women got on her cell phone and called her mother and asked her to join. Weight Watchers won't do a meeting at a worksite with less than 15 paying members. But we got our 15, so instead of having to get to a Monday night meeting, I can go during my lunch hour on Tuesdays.
Today I got the new session off to a good start by weighing in at 1.2 less than last week. I am now only 8 pounds from goal, and 6 pounds from my "free range," which, as I told Lori, makes me think of chickens. If I get to that range and stay there before the session ends, the leader said I can apply for a refund.
It's so odd to realize that April is only 12 weeks away. That means a lot of scary things for me right now, with all the dissertating yet to do. I plan to do some transcription tonight, after I take the Jeopardy test. I was going to do it earlier today, but some days it's hard to leave work at the time I'm supposed to leave. Today was one of those days.
Anyway, maybe I'll make it onto Jeopardy, win a big pile of money, and give myself a nice cushion of cash from which to launch a leisurely search for the perfect job. Wish me luck.
P.S. I took the test, but my mind was not quick enough for a lot of the questions. I just couldn't think of anything. So I guess I'll have to find a job after all.
