I have inadvertently been inducing a brain bleeder thinking up ideas to post when I should in fact be sitting pretty. But I don’t know that. I have not opened my mail. Because I have heeded the advice of Jonathan Mead by being unbalanced in my life so I can be more productive.
So understandably, I only discovered I’m already filthy rich rather late. Aw shucks. But to recap I have earned the following:
1. £950,000 pounds – allegedly from Compaq in their New Year Promo.
2. £864,008.00 – from UK lottery online promotions.
3. £500,000.00 – allegedly from Dell in their New Year Promo.
3. £250,000.00 – from an email online lottery.
The timing is just perfect. Now I can properly pay my good friend and neighbor Mye just so she can keep quiet about the nosebleed my previous post caused her. Her injury – thank goodness – is not internal, but we can’t be too careful, right?
People who represent charitable institutions, folks from any hastily conceived foundations form a line to the left. New found friends and even newly discovered blood relatives to the right. No jostling please.
It’s interesting these winnings are all in pounds. Obama has his work cut out for him bringing back respect to the US dollars. I’d like to win too next time with US dollars – to even things out.
Because I’m flush with cash today, I can’t write. I’ve since given up wiping this silly grin off my face. I can’t help it.
Just because I can’t sit still to write doesn’t mean I can’t give a shout out to people who keep their noses to the grindstone to come up with a gem of a post the past day or two. So I can take comfort knowing that it’s not a complete waste of your time. Here they are:
1. JCMangubat – for posting a hilarious video about an OFW. James, my relatives who are overseas can’t be relied upon to visit my blog as is customary with my people. So I’d just send them a link to your site to make sure. That’s a great find indeed.
2. Brandon Gilbert – for writing a Washington Post experiment and its surprising result about our ability to spot genuine talent in a commonplace environment and at an inappropriate time.
3. Ruth – who at 52 is said to be learning to be a girl again. Sure I’m curious about her marvelous photographs and posts. But this much is certain, my admiration for her blogging spunk is not shrinking. It has grown so much I’d rather not keep my find to myself.
4. Finally, here’s Jo of A Majority of Two with her tour de force of a post about letters of complaint from a triple XXX English village. Find out how an innocent list of pastoral concerns can be hilariously charged with sexual innuendos. Now you’re intrigued huh? Go.
That’s it folks. I can only be generous today with my recommendations. Perhaps a couple days after when I figure out how to cash in on my sudden wealth I’d be less of a Scrooge. Only then can you separate me from my fabulous millions.If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
