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?

Xbox 360
I decided to text into one of those "drink this gut rot and spend MORE money on a text and you might win an xbox..." i thought who cares 25p.... plus the £1.50 for the bottle.... i would be crazy to miss out on this.
Get put into the next draw to be checked at midnight. Got tired 5 minutes later and went to bed.... midnight comes and i get a text back thinking its going to be the standard "thanks for the money try again" instead its a congrats you have won a xbox 360 we will contact you soon!
Turn to the other half with glee to wake her up to tell her the good news. after several attempts at "are you AWAKE!!!!!" she finally stires to look at said message and say "i bet its a con go back to bed"

oh how my joy died..... although sure enough a few days later an xbox premium edition turns up at door :-D

woo yay! saved £270!!!! and got to be a smug bastard all day.

never won anything else.... but glad i have an xbox 360 to keep me busy while i wait.. i still wear the headset sometimes... even tho no one talks to me.....
