this guy says the horse can do, can do, can do

Last Thursday, I attended this Awards thing-y for work. It was because my customer service scores pretty much rocked last year. (We have these random phone calls to customers, and the customers are asked to rate us from 1 to 5 in different categories. Then, the scores are averaged for that particular call.)

In 2009, I had over 25 "shops" and maintained a perfect "5" ranking!

(I'm so nicespice. People just really, really like me.)

Anyway, the awards thing-y was held at Churchill Downs. We, the chosen ones, got to leave work early and we headed to the track for a cocktail hour (okay, three hours) and then dinner and raffle prize drawings.

Except for the fact that pregnant people can't even drink free alcohol, I had a super fun time. Mainly, because I bet on (Derby Winning jockey) Calvin Borel's horse to win in the 8th race that day -- $10 to win! -- and he came through for me.

I won $132.00!! Squee! The horse was a semi-long-shot, and I read in the paper that it was the best payout of the day.

I was going to share some lovely photos with you from my time on Millionaire's Row... but I can't seem to locate the doo-hickey that you plug into a digital camera and then into your computer. Foiled again.

Well, all you really need to know is that I had a lovely view and probably stood in the very spot where the likes of Nick Lachey and Terry O'Quinn have stood.

And that I WONspice.

p.s. If anyone can figure out where the title of this post came from, you will win my love and affection!


Ooo, congrats on the win! It's always awesome when a long shot pays off. Sounds like so much fun. Hope you find a way to post pictures!

What fun! I love it when I get to experience the high life for free! I'm guessing the post title comes from something you heard at the races? Or perhaps overheard?

WooHoo! Way to go on the win!

And doesn't it totally suck when you're around people who can drink you know what and you can't? I always hated that part of being preggers.
Congrats on the win and the lovely day celebrating your awesomespice.

I got the horse right here. His name is Paul Revere. And if the horse says that the weather is clear. Can do. Can do. This man says the horse can do. And if the man says the horse can do. Can dooooooooooo!

congrats on being honored at work! And for winning! ; )
I love Guys and Dolls! "I got the horse right here, his name is Paul Revere, and this guy says if the weather's clear..."
Oh, I just saw Tina Lynn beat me in cyber serenading you. I'll pick a different section.

OK, I can't think of other lyrics right now. How about a different song?

"Luck, be a lady tonight...luck, be a lady, tonight. Luck, if you've ever been a lady to begin with, luck be a lady tonight!"

Oh, and congrats on your long shot!

YAY for winningspice!! I'm glad you had fun and that work has been good. Don't worry I drank enough alcohol for the both of us for a life time. I'll keep doing that for you!

Yay for your award and for you win. I'd bet on Borel if he was riding a hippo. LOL Enjoy your winnings.

I think I remember your title as being from song I saw on the Muppet Show. Where it came from before that is beyond me. =o)
