This is my third day of cancelling my NerdStrong class. It's tough not going but I know that even though I may feel slightly better I'm still sick and need to rest (or at least rest as much as I can).
I'm normally not into "Precious Moments" figures but I saw this one and I could see myself buying it. It's titled "As You Wish" and if you are a geek you should know instantly from what movie it's from. Yep.. it's a Princess Bride Precious Moments figurine... How awesome is that!! I mean it's not worth paying $100 for it but it's still pretty nice.
When I got home from work I immediately went to my Tivo to watch this mornings The Price is Right game show. A few months back my friend Will and Becca announced on their Facebook that we couldn't miss this episode. They went with a group of their friends and "something" happened. They wouldn't tell us what so I was looking forward to seeing it. Of course I assumed one of them was told to "come on down" and I was right. The final contestant to "come on down" was my buddy Will. He had one chance to to bid and get on stage and guess what.. he did. He was the closest bidder for the trampoline and won. He is now on stage with Drew Cary, and Drew asks "what do we have to William" and the announcer says.... A NEW CAR!!!
He then went and spun the big wheel to win a spot on the showcase showdown, unfortunately he couldn't get enough to beat the person before him so his time on The Price is Right was over... or so I thought. At the end for the showcase showdown one of the prizes was a boat and sure enough in the boat was Will dancing along with the other contestants who didn't make it to the showdown.
It was fun watching a friend win big like that. It couldn't have happens to a better person. You know the expression "Nice Guys Finish Last". Will is the exception to the rule.
