Lotteries & Lymphoma

You may have noticed some slight changes to the home page…. I’m still getting used to the blogosphere and slowly making improvements, ideally enhancing your enjoyment. The categories at the top will help keep the posts a wee bit more organized later as they start to pile up, if you hover over the titles you will get a brief description of what each category is all about….

Now, I don’t know if you fall into the same damn fool department as me – but every so often when the Lottery gets up over 10 or 15 million, I’ll buy a ticket. Even though I realize – my winning is roughly the same statistically as having Jimmy Hoffa, Elvis, Lady Di & Michael Jackson, found, alive, in my crawl space, busily creating a marketing plan for their exotic beef jerky mail order business, working only by the light of the magical fairies…… so basically NIL… but…. someone has to win….

Helllllooooo, every bad decision you ever considered indulging...

Just watched a local couple who won 25 Million in the Super Max, claim their prize. She’s retired, he says he likes his job with Canada Post and will keep working… also they both really like the cars they currently drive.. so, no new cars… ummmm YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG….. at least feign for the cameras and the people watching – that you are going to go off the deep end crazy with the money.

Show up to claim the cheque sporting a solid gold pimp cane, full length Mink coat and no pants, for starters… tell us you are going to take some killer around the world trips being carried by 3rd world handicapped orphan children on those old king pillow travel beds…

These peasants are abled-bodied and thus no fun....

Fantasy, when we all occasionally dream about winning, rarely do we think about all the fantasy stuff, mostly we think about cleaning up the debts we have, the daily crap, freeing ourselves from the drudgery…. we may briefly think about the possibilities – but until you get that money in the bank it’s all academic.

I’m advising you to go ahead and dream up all the fantasy stuff now, save yourself possibly forgetting some really wacko thing you wanted to do and go ahead and make your list now, just in case…

….oh and the tumor on my thymus is benign…

Have a Great Day.
