Almost there...

The California Lottery is up to a $60 million payoff this week. I told Kevin to add me in for $20 bucks to his pool. The first week I got this job, I drove to San Francisco and passed the sign that said it was at $26 mil. and I thought to myself, "Hmm, you've had pretty good luck this week. Maybe you should buy a ticket." But I didn't because the convenience stores that sell them aren't on my day to day route through life. So then I passed it a week later and it was at forty-something million. I thought, "Hmm, maybe I was meant to win and I just didn't buy a ticket so no one won. Maybe I should buy a ticket this week." Then I passed it again last night. I thought about the house for sale in Sac. I thought about my good fortune lately. "Gotta buy a ticket I thought." Then I was on the phone with Kevin and he asked if I'd read his weblog today. Nope. So I bring it up, and click on the link marked "Holy Shit." to find that he got in to CMU. Gotta buy those lottery tickets says I. So I asked him to kick $20 in the pool for me. It's probably a huge waste of money. I'll most likely feel foolish by Thursday morning. But what if the Kharma Fairy really does want me to win?
