i did a work sweeps thing and i got Xcellent – i called it my bogan horse lol
I won $5!
Hehe yeah Xcellent was just a random horse, I don’t even think people thought it would place anywhere in the top 3? Glad we won 😛
Yay for winning! I used to win contests from the newspaper – one time I won concert tickets and sold them for profit and I won some Blisslabs stuff before. I consider myself lucky 🙂
Ooo you’re lucky!! I never really win stuff, d’oh
It’s beginner’s luck! The first time I bought 4D, won the first prize. And I never thought of gambling before, so it was totally random.
Yeah I wonder if I’ll win again if I gamble again! Well, we’ll see next year when the Cup comes round again 😉
Betting must be so much better in Aus… I picked Makybe Diva, she came first and I got nowhere as much as that…. sigh… and yes gambling is bad…….
I think it’s cos it’s with the company.. maybe outside you don’t make as much? I have no idea! 😛
Yay, congrats on the unexpected win! :)))
Thanks! Gambling is fun now… haha!
Congrats on the win! Unfortunately many who win once think they might every time and keep blowing money which is where your Pastors concerns lie. Gambling is a very serious problem for lots of people who spend their rent money, food money, etc. on everything from slot machines to horses to cards to lotteries. But if you just bet a little bit for fun, that you can afford to lose, as part of a days entertainment, and you win, then that’s awesome! That it comes during your birthday week is doubly nice. 🙂
I don’t think I can Ever get addicted to gambling.. I’m very obsessive with accounting for my $$ and I can’t handle seeing it “lost” if I don’t win!
Plus if you do the math, gambling (esp at casinos) is like 0.001% change of winning or less.. which is why casinos look so fancy I suppose – they have to get their $$ from SOMEWHERE! 😛
But it’s nice when it’s with everyone in the company getting together for some fun 🙂
Hehehe I put a bet on Kamsky also – it had fantastic odds, however I read that there was buckley to no chance of it getting anywhere. I bet on it because I called Cam that name sometimes 🙂
I betted it cos we had a last prize winner too.. too bad we both didn’t win on both accounts, haha!~
me too! i never win stuff in contests, except crappy tissue packets and what not in those lucky dips. boo. can use the money to buy urself a belated bday gift!
Hahhahahah same!!! I never gamble cos I never feel lucky 😛
I bought myself a bday gift… will post in a bit 😀
