I think my reply notices are broken. I am not getting any for the recent replies in this thread. I am subscribed to this thread.

Mum is teaching a class right now. I am afraid my stepfather will volunteer me for something stupid.  I just want to read the forums or write.

This is a non-complaint :-o

Woo Hoo, I won big in the lottery! smile

Well, not really big but big enough to have to worry about taxes! :-o

I play about one ticket a week.  I figure I can risk $50 a year for a possible decent payout. I’ve won as much as $80 before with 4 out of 6 numbers but this time I got 5 out of 6 numbers in the NY State Lotto (it was a random “quick pick”).  Prize $862.  Cool beans! smile

Too big to cash in at the local grocery store. I had to make a trip to the Buffalo area to cash in at one of the authorized Lotto payout stations in one of the Casinos.  For me that’s a 50 mile trip and in my financial situation that big of a trip has become an adventure. 

My 14 year old car made it there and back, so that part of the adventure was uneventful, but when I got there I found myself in the middle of the Erie County Fair (major major event in this area).  Thousands and thousands of cars all fighting for a place to park. :(  I bluffed my way past the people charging $5 to park and pulled up next to the casino entrance and asked about temporary parking, without success. :(  I ended up crusing the acres and acres of full parking lots looking for a spot.  Eventually I found a spot just a hundred feet from the entrance, which is a good thing because didn’t bring my walking cane.

I hobbled into the casino (never been in one before) and oogled at all the stupid people throwing their money into machines as fast as they could, one after another.  Dumb, dumb, dumb!  Got my Lotto winnings from the cashier cage and left the casino without spending anything.  I didn’t even get charged for parking.  Cool beans!  (*grin*).

So what did I do with my windfall?  I’ve always wanted a great printer so I rushed right out to OfficeMax and bought a great one capable of high quality large photos.  It was on sale and they were offering trade-in deductions too, so I ended up saving $150 on a $300 printer. Cool! smile  I set aside some of the winnings for possible taxes at the end of the year.  I set aside some to help pay for getting my teeth fixed.  Finally, and to avoid guilt about not gifting friends or relatives (or store employes who sold me the ticket) I gave some to the local small town church.  (I am a spiritual but not a religious person.  However, I figure the church is a decent organization that despite its ties to religion tries to do good things for the local people.  I did make the stipulation that the money was to be used for people not buildings.  I have no respect for churches and religions that adorn themselves in stone buildings, riches, and pontification.)

I would have bought some more DAZ stuff but I already have everything I want from DAZ.  Sorry.

My philosophy about lotteries:
1) If you don’t play you won’t win
2) It only takes one ticket to win
3) Unless you have millions to risk by buying a preponderance of the numbers, buying more than one ticket for the same contest is dumb.
4) There is no system.  Any number combination is equally likely to win.


Wow, ongrats!  Spend your winning in good health (or on it)!!! cool smile snake

To be or not to be that is the question.

Sure!! I love two needles and a large dose of Heparin every few days. Then I get some meds that make everything taste like copper for a few hours. Really though it’s now bad, the hardest part for me is sitting in my chair for hours, my Arthur does not like me to be still that long. But I’m five by five for almost four years now. That’s Fun in my book.

I’m not afraid of needles but I’m sick of seeing them. I’ve had more than I can count in my back for some procedure. One needle left a hole so big that I’d swear needed a stitch.

Today’s complaints:

I’ve never played the Lotto, they never had one in my state and it gets voted down every time.
I had to get up way to early today, I was sleeping so good when the alarm went off.
I’m waiting to see if I will have a Dialysis crash today or not. Hoping for not.
I had to drive in the rain this morning, just wet enough that the cars in front of you messed up your windshield.
The meds I got today make things taste coppery, copper coffee is one flavor that will never sale.
Even after installing ALL my Genesis content I have loads of content left to install.
I went and bought MORE Genesis content I still need to install.
And LAST today, my caretaker screwed up and I’m out of my Arthur pain medicine and need to run into town today.

I do not like needles.

I can not watch them stick me. I just can not do it. And Sometimes I feel nothing at all then other times it feels like someone is poking me with a large knife. BLAH!! Today was a knife day.

poke, poke, poke, owie. i hate needles too.

I wonder if a $700 USD laptop can play the latest games.  The processor in the laptops look ok, they only have Intel HD 4000 video chips.  Uggg.  I’ll keep looking.  My desktop computer is still too slow after I upgraded the video card and RAM.  I guess the new games use a ton of high quality textures and high polygon characters and other objects not found in games older than three or four years.

Two problems. I do not know where my stepfather hid my keys. I also do not know where the local library is. I am new to this area where my mum lives.
