I Win I Win!

Friday, April 30th, 2010

I went down to Safeway the other night and bought a two dollar bag of hamburger buns – when I paid I got handed one of those “Lucky Break” chance to win cards.  I opened it up and had three matching pictures in one of the things.  Now, I never shop at Safeway so I had to flip it over to see what that meant, but it turns out I won a Tassimo Beverage System.  It looks like a specialty coffee maker where you buy these cartridges of the ingredients, and when you put it in the machine it scans the barcode to load the recipe, then uses the cartridge to brew it perfectly for you!

After some recon via the Waddell, it looks like these machines retail $169, and you can buy a package of 16 cartridges for $6.50.  Not a bad deal!

I went down to Safeway today and answered my skill testing question: Multiply 80 by 3; subtract 100; divide by 7; add 43.  It’ll get shipped to the store and I can pick it up in 6 weeks!

Snowboarding Cypress

Friday, April 9th, 2010

A couple nights ago, Cypress got an amazing 55cm dump of snow so Tim and I just couldn’t resist! We went up on Friday afternoon for 3 hours and I managed to squeeze in 16 runs. It was pretty awesome conditions, and it was my first and likely last time up my local hill for this season! I tracked myself at 40km and a max speed of 66.60 km/hr.
