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?

Great Unexpected Fortune
As a Reading Festival veteran of 7 years I was devestated to find out that the 2005 festival was sold out - especially when my favourite band Iron Maiden were destined to appear. No worries thought I, Ebay will have loads of tickets I'll buy one for £200 and I'll be sorted. Ok its more expensive than i would have wanted to pay but I've been doing regular overtime for a while so I'm minted anyway what do I care.

However, after sending my money over the genius system that is paypal I get a message a month before the festival from the company I bought the ticket through one "Glenfield trading" saying that one of the partners has run off with the money and so they were were very sorry but I'd been ripped off.

Just prior to this i had lost my job and was hence a little skimpy on funds and couldn't afford to buy another ticket off Ebay. i went out that night with the lads ended up chatting to this girl and agreed to meet up a couple of days later. Two days later we go out have a great time end up shagging and then she tells me she has a spare ticket to Reading which she'll sell me for £100 as long as I bring the tent.

We go to Reading together have a great time and now we're engaged. Wooohooo gotta love the Festival magic.
