My jet lag must be a little worse than I thought, because I don’t even remember playing! Maybe they read the blog and entered me when I crossed over into British airspace? I feel bad for all the poor folks that have lived here their whole life, patiently waiting for their jackpot. But that’s not gonna keep me from contacting their “fudiciary agent.” Let’s see, they need my bank account number to deposit the winnings. Well, that clearly makes sense. And I have to fill out a form with a lot of info, I guess so that they can prove the payout is going to the right person. I’d better go and fill out this form before they change their mind. Ha, Madonna moved here *years* ago and she never won the National Lottery. Take that, Madonna!
