This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

Just before Easter last year, I was being a sad insomniac and watcing Quizmania on TV until some silly o’clock hour in the morning. Now they do offer a free online web entry, so being the scaffy git I am, I took them up on this offer and got myself entering via the web. I don’t know if any of you know how it works but basically you enter some details click submit and if you are lucky then a page will pop up saying "call this free phone number bla bla bla" (if not it just says try again), if you do call you get to the point where it says "Lets see if we can put you though the to studio bla bla bla" (if not it just says try again). Anywho, I got through for the fist time, and through to the studio to talk to a rather attractive looking female presenter, said my answer and hay presto I won £700, and how much did it cost me I hear you ask? Not even a single great British penny! I tell you I was chuffed, I just feel sorry for those people who spend stupid amounts and never win a thing. To this day no quiz show and TV has received a single penny from me!

By the way I DID actually get my cheque for £700 as well (I ever have a photocopy of it to prove it) I cashed my cheque with a remark from the nice bank lady pointing out how she never realised people actually won stuff on those programs, I just felt sad that I was watching it in the first place and went off to spend it all in 3 weeks!
