I told you I wouldn’t need to work!!

I’ve won the lottery.

The kind gents at “UK National Lottery” apparently held an “Online Sweepstakes International Lottery Program … on JANUARY 12TH, 2007.”

According to this e-mail I’ve received, “Participants were selected through a computer ballot system drawn from a pool of over 25,000 names of distinguished professionals drawn from Europe, America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Middle-East, parts of
Africa, and North & South America as part of our international promotions programme conducted annually to encourage prospective overseas entries. We hope with part of your prize awards, you will take part in our subsequent lottery jackpots.”

Distinguished professional??? Moi??? Well, I’ll let that one slip, because a phrase like “…your £850,000,00 (Eight Hundren and Fifty Thousand Pounds Sterling) would be released to you by any of our payment offices in Europe” buys a lot of forgiveness in my books.

And if I had any doubts as to the authenticity of this, they’ve given me a contact e-mail address, uknationallotteryboard_claims@yahoo.co.uk.

On a more serious note, I’ve got an interview coming up Thursday for a “Geographic Information Systems Assistant” at one of Greater Manchester’s largest transport authorities for buses and trams (there, that should give you a clue). If you still haven’t got it, try putting the words “Greater”, “Manchester”, “Public” and “Transport” together in Google.

  1. Good luck with the interview. You know, should you choose not to claim your prize money and opt for the hard working life in order to empathise with your lowly friends. 😉
