Awards! And Work! **UPDATED**

At work*, whenever some new manager person comes in to meet the class, we have to go around the room and introduce ourselves and say what we did previous and why we chose to come to the bank.  Everyone else but me has some sort of call center background and whenever they get around to me and I say I was a personal trainer, whoever the manger is kind of pauses and, I'm not even kidding, sucks in their stomach, and says something like, "Oh, that's different!" or "I really need one of those ha ha" or something along those lines and then I have to explain that I do actually have customer service experience but, by that point, my introduction is already way longer than anyone else's and I can't really say I'm here because my brother told me to, so I usually just say nothing unless they ask and then I just lie and say that I'm really interested in banking.  Although I am finding it pretty interesting so I guess it's not really a lie anymore.  Phew.

People in my class have also started coming up to me on a daily basis and asking me workout and nutrition advice and I'm pretty convinced now that the majority of people there will do anything I tell them to.  I was talking about this new vegetable steamer I bought which also steams meat and fish and eggs and stuff and I was saying how awesome it was and how everyone needs to go buy one and one of the girls says that her and her boyfriend are trying to be more healthy so she's going to tell him that they need to go buy one because a personal trainer told her that it was a good idea.  She was pretty excited about it too.  So, I guess I kind of know how doctors feel now.  Because I am exactly like a doctor.

Ok.  So, as I mentioned before, Dorkvader who is awesome and wants to be ninja some day, gave me this cool award where you have to answer the following questions with one word and than pass it on to 5 other bloggers and, seeing as how I'm very supportive of the ninja population, and also scared of them, I am going to do what she tells me.  Here we go:

And somehow I've copied her font and don't know how to undo it so enjoy this little change of pace.  I'm going to go ahead and give the award out to the following people:(I'm too lazy to link them so just click on the links on the side of my blog if you're so inclined.  And you should be because they're awesome.)

  1. May-B
  2. Working from home today
  3. Solo Adventurer
  4. The Watson Life
  5. It's Blogworthy.

* I know I said I wasn't going to write about work but I more meant I wasn't going to write about specific things like calls or people or whatever.  Plus I'm a liar.

So, Amanda from It's Blogworthy had a good question.  And that question was if there was a picture that went with the award and it turns out there is! And a name of the award!  You would think I might have checked that out in the first place wouldn't you?  But then, if you thought that, you wouldn't know me very well because I tend to miss things.  So here it is!  I consider all of my many many readers over the top because obviously you have excellent taste but, today, the five people mentioned above have exceeded the normal amount of over the topness.  Well done!

*gasp* An award! How exciting! Is there some kind of picture that goes with it? I'm totally doing a ninja award, that's right up my alley. Thanks!

There is a picture! I totally didn't even check the first time. I guess I too was very excited about the award.
I've updated my post with the picture. You should really create a ninja award though. That would be sweet.

Over the top is just as good as Ninja!
