        Except when the jackpot is very small, I actually don't want to be the sole winner which might sound odd to some people. 

        On the other hand, when I read that someone in Miami won $36 million with a QP, I thought "Congrats to the winner.  Lucky dog!"  But I also thought "Boy, wish I had those numbers and we each got $18 million." (after all, he's still be very rich)  So maybe I'm only enlightened halfway!

          Because the friend that we play MM with goes into a frenzy as the jackpot grows, I actually pray that somebody hits it. Be nice if it was us, but please somebody hit.

          Then when it does get hit and the PB jackpot is higher than MM, he asks every person he encounters if they are going to Missouri - and then when he finds somebody that is, he refuses to play advanced plays - in case that jackpot gets hit, he doesn't want to have money going on PB at the start point.

          Bad karma all the way around if you ask me.

          Beware jackpot chasers.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

               Since I am playing the lottery out of bitter revenge, I want my prize to be obscenely huge. And I don't want to share my prize with any F-ers out there.

               You know, I wonder if 40 mil prize is enough for me to bring my life story to Oprah and People Magazine. Actually, I have two different sets of numbers from two separate dreams. If I win jackpots twice with the numbers I saw in my two separate dreams, that would be something, right?

               If I win a big one, I am definitely going public: USA Today, People Magazine, LA Times, Oprah and whatnot. I don't care if I get ridiculed on Leno. I really want to see the faces of people who deliberately destroyed my dream and life, when I win a big jackpot.

                Why do something like that and make yourself a target again?

                With that kind of money get some top lawyers and ruin thsoe people and go to sleep thinkiing about the looks on their faces, but keep a low profile.

                But if one jackpot isn't going to satisfy you neither is two.

                  I'll admit that I'd feel something that would probably be along the lines of revenge BUT I wouldn't go out and rub it in anyone's faces. The satisfaction would be kept to myself, anyway I'd be rich now so what would I care?

                  You can't predict random.

                    I have a copy by my computer, on my desk at school and on the refrig.

                     

                    I also have a "Tear Box " on my desk.  It is sealed and has an opening like a piggy bank.   Drop all your tears there will be no leakage.

                              The Awakening

                      A time comes in your life when you finally get it…When in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out  ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes, you begin to look at the world through new eyes.

                      This is your awakening. You realize that it’s time to stop hoping and waiting for something to change or for happiness, safety and security to come galloping over the next horizon. You come to terms with the fact that I am not Prince Charming and you are not Cinderella and that in the real world there aren’t always fairy tail endings (or beginnings for that matter) and that any guarantee of “happily ever after” must begin with you.

                      You awaken to the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will always love, appreciate of approve of who or what you are… and that’s OK. (They are entitled to their own views and opinions.) And you learn the importance of loving and championing yourself and in the process, a sense of new found confidence is born of self-approval.

                      You stop bitching and blaming other people for the things they did to you (or didn’t do for you) and you learn that the only thing you can really count on is the unexpected. You learn that people don’t always say what they mean or mean what they say and that not everyone will always be there for you and that it’s not always about you. So, you learn to stand on your own and to take care of yourself and in the process a sense of safety and security is born of self-reliance. You stop judging and pointing fingers and you begin to accept people as they are and to overlook their shortcomings and human frailties and in the process, a sense of peace and contentment is born of forgiveness.

                      You realise that much of the way you view yourself, and the world around you, is as a result of all the messages and opinions that have been ingrained into your thick head. And you begin to sift through all the crap you’ ve been fed about how you should behave, how you should look and how much you should weigh, what you should wear and were you should shop and what you should drive, how and where you should live and what you should do for a living, who you should sleep with, who you should marry and what you should expect of a marriage, the importance of having and raising children or what you owe your parents.

                      You learn to open up to new worlds and different points of view. And you begin reassessing and redefining who you are and what you really stand for. You learn the difference between wanting and needing and you begin to discard the doctrines and values you’ve outgrown, or should never have bought in to begin with and in the process you learn to go with your instincts.

                      You learn that it is truly in giving that we receive. And that there is power and glory in creating and contributing and you stop maneuvering through life merely as a “consumer” looking for your next fix. You learn that principles such as honesty and integrity are not the outdated ideals of a gone era but the mortar that holds together the foundation upon which you must build a life.

                      You learn that you don’t know everything: it’s not your job to save the world and that you can’t teach a pig to sing. You learn to distinguish between guilt and responsibility and the importance of setting boundaries and learning to say No. You learn that the only cross to bear is the on you choose to carry and that martyrs get burned at the stake.

                      Then you learn about love. Romantic love and familial love. How to love, how much to give in love, when to stop giving and when to walk away. You learn not to project you needs or your feelings onto a relationship. You learn that you will not be more beautiful, more intelligent, more loveable or important because of the man on your arm or the child that bears your name. You learn to look at relationships as they really are and not as you would have them be.

                      You stop trying to control people, situations and outcomes. You learn that just as people grow and change so it is with love…And you learn that you don’t have the right to demand love on your terms…Just to make you happy. And, you learn that alone does not mean lonely… And you look in the mirror and come to terms with the fact that you will never be a size 5 or a perfect 10 and you stop trying to compete with the image inside your head and agonizing over how you “stack up”.

                      You also stop working so hard at putting your feelings aside, smoothing things over and ignoring your needs. You learn that feelings of entitlement are perfectly OK…And that it is your right to want things and to ask for the things that you want. And that sometimes it is necessary to make demands. You come to the realisation that you deserve to be treated with love, kindness, sensitivity and respect and you won’t settle for less. And, you allow only the hands of a lover who cherishes you to glorify you with his touch… and in the process, you internalise the meaning of self-respect.

                      And you learn that your body really is your temple. And you begin to care for it and treat it with respect. You begin eating a balanced diet, drinking more water and taking more time to exercise. You learn that fatigue diminishes the spirit and can create doubt and fear. So you take more time to rest. And, just as food fuels the body, laughter fuels our soul. So, you take more time to laugh and to play. You learn that for the most part, in life you get what you believe you deserve… and that much of life truly is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

                      You learn that anything worth achieving is worth working for and that wishing for something to happen is different from working towards making it happen. More importantly, you learn that in order to achieve success you need direction, discipline and perseverance. You also learn that no one can do it all alone and that it’s OK to risk asking for help. You learn that the only thing you must truly fear is the great robber baron of all time, FEAR itself. You learn to step right into and through your fears because you know that whatever happens you can handle it and to give in to fear is to give away the right to live life on your terms. And you learn to fight for you life and not to squander it living under a cloud of impending doom.

                      You learn that life isn’t always fair, you don’t always get what you think you deserve and that sometimes, bad things happen to unsuspecting, good people. On these occasion you learn not to personalise things. You learn that God isn’t punishing you or failing to answer you prayers. It’s just life happening. And you learn to deal with evil in its most primal state  the ego. You learn that negative feelings such as anger, envy, and resentment must be understood and redirected or they will suffocate the life out of you and poison the universe that surrounds you. You learn to admit when you are wrong and to build bridges instead of walls.

                      You learn to be thankful and to take comfort in many of the simple things we take for granted, things that millions of people upon the earth can only dream about; a full refrigerator, clean running water, a soft warm bed, a long hot shower. Slowly, you begin to take responsibility for yourself by yourself and you make yourself a promise to never betray yourself and to never settle for less than your heart’s desire. And you hang a wind chime outside you window so you can listen to the wind. And you make it a point to keep smiling, to keep trusting and to stay open to every wonderful possibility. Finally, with courage in your heart and with God by your side, you take a stand, you take a deep breath and you begin to design the life you want to live as best you can.

                      Hubby went to his 35 High School Reunion.  He talked with a man who was asking questions about his ex wife he hasn't seen in 30 years.  He has been searching for her since the break up and wants to mend things between them.  My husband had mentioned talking with her 10 years ago. This man pulled out a napkin to find out details.  Now that is very sad.   My husband couldn't possibly help this man find this woman.  This woman cannot possibly be the same person she was 30 years ago.  But to think he has searched and had high hopes for 30 years, is so sad.

                       

                      What kind of life is he living?

                         I do.

                         My life was shattered 9 years ago. I tried to dust it off and rise again, but I alway failed. I still vividly remember the faces of people who destroyed my life.

                         My psychosomatic pain started on January 2005. I couldn't function at all. The pain started when I learned about one of them who slept her way through a high-profile corporate job, a car designer. I couldn't eat and sleep. I desperately yearned for exit but it didn't come. On August 2005 I had a dream and one old woman in the dream said I would win the lottery. Since then, I have religiously played lottery. When the pain didn't stop, I attempted to took my own life on March 2007, two months after I saw the six numbers in my dream.

                         After the suicide attempt, my pain was gone. But my rage remained the same. I still played the lottery.

                         One of my friends is a screenwriter. He and I have brainstormed for a story and came up with one. It is about a lottery winner whose life was devastated by a group of people long before he becomes a winner and the lottery winner gets a hold of portable nuclear weapons from Russian Mafia, using his winning prize. In the story, the lottery winner also hires contract killers to take out the families of people who destroyed his life.

                         My friend asked me if I would do the same thing when I won the big lottery jackpot. I said "Hell no."

                         "What are you gonna do?"

                         "I am taking my life story to Oprah and People Magazine."

                        I hope you have gotten over your bitterness.
