I'm not sure what he was looking at. I'm never sure. He's a beautiful boy. Of that I am sure.
How nice it was to get a blog visit from the local Fox affiliate (Fox Television Stations Of Phila) over my posts of the last few days about our alleged snowstorm. It's nice to know I don't have to waste my time posting a comment to their web site. I'm particularly fond of the photo of the forecast and the "big chubby under that sport jacket" reference and the photo of the two inches of snow directly above the forecast of 10" to 14". I couldn't have said it better myself. I do my best thinking here.
There's another one of those Mega Millions jackpot drawings going off tonight. $212 million. People rush to get their tickets, dreaming of the millions (even mega millions) but if they thought about it they'd ask themselves how it got to 212 million. It's because nobody has won. It didn't start out that way, you know. Last week, when the jackpot was 146 million (still mega, by millions standards) I bought 5 tickets because I'm dopey that way. When the numbers were announced I discovered that I had matched exactly one number. A 17 I think. That's when it dawned on me that I had wasted my time and money. I know, you can't win if you don't play. But you also can't lose. It's a conundrum.
Nevertheless, I always get into those office pools when somebody runs around collecting money. I don't want any of those bastards retiring and leaving me behind.
I think there should be a limit on the jackpot. 212 million dollars is a lot for one person to win - and it will almost certainly be one person. When you consider the millions of people (mega millions, actually) that are buying tickets, it's amazing that there aren't more winners. That's the allure and frustration of playing the lottery.
I have a relative who swears that he can pick numbers based on trends, as though ping pong balls have a conscience. I do, however, which is why I choose to invest my money in Phillies tickets, the stock market and my drinking problem. Those are sure-fire winners.
I just realized, I haven't posted a photo of my cat in a while. So, here are a few. It's my blog, I can do what I want. While I was editing these, I noticed that I had the D40 set on "child." I'm not sure that was a total coincidence.
