Day Three

I don't know what's up, but Blogger's not letting me save drafts, which means I can't write anything and make it post on Saturday.

So I'll write a post for tomorrow but won't be able to post it until Sunday, which probably takes me out of the running for all the prizes offered by NaBloWriMo, but that's OK, I wouldn't have won anyway. I'm not being pessimistic, I just know my record - the only thing I've ever won in a raffle has been a salame.

Even at some golf tournament dinner I went to with a date once, where I was incensed because the women winners had to pick a plant and the guys got to pick liquor (I would've probably picked a plant anyway if I'd had a choice, but it was the chauvinism of the thing that bugged me)....everyone won something except for one other lady and me. They thought they had gotten enough for everyone by having 100 raffle gifts. Just goes to show you - I don't win even when the odds are heavily in my favor.

I rarely ever win at anything either. However, keep on trying our day has to come some time.

EEEkkkk. Don't bother with the draft thing. Write your posts in an email and send it to yourself...that way, when Blogger really screws up, you don't lose everything before being able to post. Yeah. I learned this the hard way.
As for the winning. I'm almost right there with ya.
I won $100 from a radio station back in '87.
And I won a children's play table in '94 when Daisy was in pre-school.
Nada...since then.

I'm really hoping to win a new banner and masthead, because I have the most boring looking blog in the history of blogdom.

Let's see, I have won lunch at a mexican restaurant (yummy!) and...I thnk that's it. So I'm totally due. Right?
