    Man these threads digress quickly, huh? Any way I bought a couple quick-picks when I bought my paper this AM & our Administrative Assistant threw out an em asking for a $5 per person donation company-wide... So, when he numbers are drawn & I don't win, I'm out about 2 gallons of gas...Shucks...

    I picked up 3 quick picks Wednesday, and 2 more tonight, such a big spender.

    First thing on my list would be to oh sooooo thoroughly enjoy telling a certain someone to stick it. After that, whoopee dooo to me & mine [​IMG]

    The only way I could win $640 Million would be if 700 million people had the same number as me!!!

    Me and the Wife have made severals stops over the last few days. Have over 20 of them now.

    My buddy at work bought 120. Went to 3 of the "Hot" stores around us and bought 40 at each store. Thats crazy. But if either of us win. We wont be going to work on Mon....

    My father once told me " shmucks like you and I will have to work our whole lives. It will never come easy." Well, I have one ticket and a 1 in 176,000,000 chance of proving him wrong.

    Well, I have 3 numbers for a whopping pay out of $7.. I got my money back. Reminds of the feeling I had going to Mohegan Sun a few years back, and playing with the hay money. Got down to the wire, and I was down $150 (out of 350). Sat down at a slot machine for a bit and all of a sudden the lights started going off, etc. Ended up with $550 in my pocket. It was time to go home, and I did. Last time I went to a casino [​IMG]

    The lil lady is traveling right now and asked me to get tix. I told her "I'll get up early with the dogs, rub your feet, run errands when you travel, take a bullet if needed, but you're on your own with these" I also sent her an article about the 4 hour lines in Las Vegas (where she is). She was understanding :)

    It's either a ploy, or we really didn't win.

    we all have our vices, and if we cared to admit any of them, then certainly some of us would call it a waste. A guy spends 5 bucks on the lottery and loses....folks say he's an idiot for trying at those odds. I dont drink, so, any money spent on beers to me is foolish....and I bet its more than 5 bucks.....as you only rent beer. I play an online game that costs me $13 a month....another waste of my money....note I said MY money.....we are all conservators of our own money, well, what the gummint leaves us after taxes.......

    OK, I'll confess. I had my BIL pick me up some tickets in Illinois. And it looks like one of them is a winner. Now that I have recovered my senses I have to figure out what to do with all this money. Hmmm, what to do? Fund stove research for the 3d world? Buy all hearth.com members a ticket to the next gathering? Buy a politician? So many decisions to make.
