 No, I will go back to school and find a new job. I want to be the next Ryan Meinerding.

I'd rather see you be the next Robert Crumb.

     Not a bad idea. But to be like Crumb I would have to do a lot of self-promotioning. And no studio would hire me if I draw like him. They want...something more...conventional.

        At a bus depot in Northamptonshire, the drivers had waited three years for a lottery winner... and now 12 have come along all at once.
        The lucky dozen have revealed they were in a syndicate which scooped the £38million EuroMillions jackpot on Friday night.
        And after they all failed to turn up for work the following morning, there are suggestions they could resign from the depot en masse – removing a fifth of the driving workforce in one fell swoop.

        We all get a lot out of lotteries!

            lol  I never got that show....Lucy and others are great but all he did was threaten to hit his wife .

            Ralph would have invested the winnings in a get rich (richer) scheme and lost it all anyway.

                      A lot of people play the jackpot games so if they win they can quit working. But if you open your own business you may be working more than you do now. You can't stay home and do nothing if you own the company. 

                      If I won I would wait till I got the first couple of checks before I quit. Wouldn't want there to be a mistake and have to beg to get my job back.

                      But the best part would be, I would have more time to play the pick 3.  Wink

                          I chose that I would quit my job and start a new business, but that is only 1/2 true. I am a stay at home mom and I really can't quit that Smile. But I would love to start my own business!

                            If I were in your shoes I'd hire a nanny/house keeper. I heard Berta may be available from two and half men. She is so funny!

                             

                            When I win, I would have to quit my job ( the fastest way to mediocrity is to follow the crowd ).Cool
