    and I was so looking forward to coming to work today, taking a sh*t in my cube, and commencing with the turning on, tuning in, and dropping out full time immediately.

    Back to the drawing board;)

    I'll take a few snaps courtside for you, send them to your cell. War Memorial Gym is so small, the teams have to walk through the lobby to take the court.  And the visiting team gets the worst lobby, the one EVERYONE enters through, so they stand there in their uniforms while everyone gawks at them trying to get past them to get to their seats.

    One of the big winners was from Missouri.  Was it you???  And if so, just remember your friends here on Talk Left.    ;-)

    Unfortunately it was not me (5.00 / 1) (#5)

    I was over in Illinois at the Lady of the Snows yesterday as part of a program that encourages walking more and using more public transportation. We had about 20 minutes to kill before catching our bus so I bought my ticket in an Illinois gas station rather than in Missouri. Out of the two tickets that I purchased, I did not even have one, not one, of the numbers picked.

    It is my understanding that the winning ticket was sold in some rural town in Missouri so it probably didn't make any difference in the long run.

    I guess my family and social contributions will have to wait for another day.

    Our Lady of the Snows!  Yes, I have been there- very pretty.  Very nice place to walk around.
    Sorry about your not being the winner, though.  :-(

    I bombed out so much better than you did.  Two of my QuickPicks had one number.
