It's awfully tough to get excited about the $12 Million! on Mega Millions' website after a $303 million drop.  I'm sure a lot of you guys feel the same way.  Kind of a "blah" day today.

    Yes, you are correct.  There is always the withdrawal blues.  Calming yourself down to deal with your world as it is!  Soometimes thats not so good, and sometimes, thats not so bad. 

    But there is always another large Jack Pot over the horizon.

      Actually, this is an incentive to get off this record jackpot kick and get back to normal jackpots.  Every one feels better when there are more winners.

      Besides, as soon as the winners start talking, there will be plenty of fodder to go around.

      Cheers

                  You could still buy caviar on $12 million, and be as anonymous as a lottery winner can be.

                    You can buy a lot of caviar with either of the PP or MM wins; just not an endless supply.  Put away the dreams, put away the dolar; they go hand in hand.

                      HAHAH. This Post cracks me up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I didn't know alot of people had "the blues" like this..  I thought I was the only one that felt depressed about it.. and I was too embarrassed to tell anybody.    But yes.. This morning I checked the Michigan's Mega Millions homepage and I looked at the odd looking drawing numbers and saw that it came down to 12 Million.. and I had the blues....hahah still ,, kind of funny that many people have this "blues".  Im having a "blah" day today also.

                        Don't get depressed.  Remember what the wise man said.  If, at first, you don't succeeed, borrow some money, and try again.

                        Cheers

                          I'm not depressed or have the blues. I guess because I didn't play. =)

                          Dance like no one is watching.

                              Old enough to work, and not old enough to have to quit.
