Ya, so, they are trying to get people at my workplace to get the flu shot. Getting the flu shot at this hallway-based "clinic" will serve as your entry into a draw for:
- Running Room gift certificates
- a digital camera
- an iPod
- fancy pants treatment at Spa Utopia
- a 3 hr charter sailboat trip2
What do you think? Do you get the flu shot? Would you if your workplace bribed you with fabulous prizes?

3They always make a point of saying that you can't get the actual flu from the flu vaccine, since it's not made from a live virus. But if you are getting "flu-like symptoms," isn't that pretty much just like having the flu?
4 In fairness, I got screwed out of an assist that I clearly made a few games ago that the ref didn't record, so this just evens things up .
5Sorry, I couldn't resist.
