"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by Dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become."

"Oh I'll keep going to work I will......"

58 year old cabbie Bob Frazer scooped a whopping £14million on the lottery this week, and on returning from a round the world jaunt he announced he would not be selling his 3-bedroomed ex council house semi, and would keep living in it for the foreseeable future.

I hate these people!!!! Why do you play the lottery!!!! Why do you bother, you imbeciles!!!!! If you win £14million you darn well ENJOY IT!!!!! Time after time I read about Mavis the cleaner who wins £4million and tells us she's not giving up her cleaning job/still shopping for loo roll at Poundland/not selling her Skoda/giving all the money to her garden gnome. Then that ghastly yob who scooped millions and told us that he wasn't going to spend £50 on a sweatshirt cos it was "too much money".

I wonder what psychological impact winning the lottery has on people - maybe they go into some sort of stupor where they think that £14million will run out in a few years so they'd better sit on it for a rainy day, or keep their job just in case? Or are they desperately trying to cling onto their old life, not willing to move up into the ranks of the super-rich?

My message to Bob is "If you don't want to spend all it give some of it to ME and I'll darn well enjoy it!" If you aint gonna spend it then DON'T BOTHER playing you idiots. Let's see now...Lotus Elise, Ferarri, house in Australia, jetski, my own personal Spitfire, Keanu Reeves as a house slave......ahhhh I'll keep dreaming.
