The National Lottery

I recently either read, heard or saw a report somewhere (I have forgotten where, if anyone knows please comment) on the fact that the majority of players of the national lottery play purely in the hope they'll win and not because of the good causes that benefit from the money.

Is it just me or isn't this to be totally expected? If people played because they wanted to give to good causes then they could just donate to charity or get out ino the community and help out. I suppose the point is not many people play with the hope of winning but know that even if they don't win then they are at least helping society.

I personally play the national lottery and to be perfectly honest i'm 'in it to win it', that's not to say i'm not wanting to help society though, I do also give to charity, hmm I dont really know where I'm going with this so I'm just gonna shut up!

How random?

Picture this; I arrive back in Leam at 1:20am after being home and I'm just getting my stuff out of my car and I'm approached by 3 less-then-sober people – 1 guy, 2 girls – and one of the girls who I expected to ask somehing eiher really silly, pointless or useful (like the time perhaps) but no, she asked me if she could have her picture taken with me.

I had been out to Nightingales in Birmingham so I was dressed quite smartly but I was wearing my Asda flece over my shirt to keep me warm, so we sat on my car bonnet and the other girl took the photo and the in a kinda shocked way said "he's green", I'm not sure why she hadn't noticed this before as I though the Asda uniform was bright enough to replace a lighthouse but there you go.

So some random girl will probably look through her photos and wonder who the hell I am, but she'll know where I work. Apparently she works at Tesco though, presumably the store on the Parade?
