So, this is, like, a public service announcement reminding you to go buy a Ca Mega Million Lotto Ticket. Because the jackpot is 145 million clam shells--and if I'm not the winner tonight, then the winner better damn well be one of my friends. "You can't win if you don't play." That's what the dude at the local 7-11 who was buying a ticket just said on the news, and you know what? He's right.
(I can't believe I decided to waste a blog entry by urging people to go and shell out some of their hard earned cash on the lotto, but whatever. Wouldn't it be cool if one of us won?) (The odds of winning are, like, one in 5-thousand-billion.) (But still.) (I just had the most satisfying poop in a really long time.) (I know that a lot of you are thinking "why does Erik insist on sharing poop updates?" but when you have a poop as satisfying as the one I just had, then you have to share. Like, you feel bad if you don't share. Like, you feel so refreshed and free, you know? And you want the world to know WHY you feel so refreshed and free, and you hope that everyone you know can have a poop as satisfying as the one you just had, and you hope that they can all have that poop soon.) (Anyway, one of the reasons I'm telling you I just had a really satisfying poop is to let you know that I've already had a pretty decent day. I mean, the day is going really well, evidenced by my awesome poop--and, yes, I just upgraded it from being "satisfying" to being "awesome"--and so, I don't need to win the lottery for today to be a really good day--today is already an awesome, yes awesome, day. Winning the lottery would be, like, gravy at this point.) (Which, if you're reading my blog, oh ye lottery gods, is a good thing--yes, gravy is definitely a good thing.) (But winning the lottery is not an essential requirement for making this day satisfying and awesome.) (But a good poop is.)
