Not Struck by Lightning
No Hugo Prize Fund Foundation this time, I'm afraid. Aside from 02 having been a recurring theme in many of the tickets I bought for the draw, nothing else hit — not even a lesser prize like $1 or $2. Back to living in the real world.
Mind you, I don't know what the results of the office pool into which I put $10 are yet. I promised my supervisor that if I won, I'd work out to the end of the current project.
When I made my stop in Colfax, I had an e-mail from a friend outside the country asking if I could buy $20 worth of tickets for him, which I agreed to do. I stopped at Truckee and bought the ticket there. I'm glad I didn't wait until the last-chance place on Nevada Exit 1 (the casino extended their parking lot and build a Lotto shack just over the boundary) because news reports said the queues there were huge, whereas there was only a short wait at the Safeway in Truckee. (Those tickets didn't win, either.) I'll have to remember to collect my $20 at Worldcon. Current Mood: amused
