My Lucky Day

Not only did I get a job today and manage to plunk out a recognizable four bars of "When the Saints Go Marching In" (left AND right hands) on the piano this afternoon, I found this in my junk email folder:

Now, considering the British pound is worth over 2 American dollars this could be the secret trust fund I've been whining about all my life. Because I'm sure an honest and above board pay officer from the British lottery has a Yahoo address. Hee.

Quick, claim your millions. I'm sure there's a small fee of $4,000 that you'll have to send as a "processing fee"...just saw this on Oprah.

Scully said...

But what is $4,000 compared with untold (or told) millions!

aquamarine said...

Yes, yes, Scully. Send them all your personal info. I am sure they are more than happy to have it. ;) That just wreaks scam to me.

Fantastic on the job and the piano! We will have to hold a recital for you if we all get in one place at one time.

Panini said...

yay about your job! what kind of a job is it? i bet somebody is going to try to cash in on this great offer you're broadcasting.

Miss Parker said...

But I just put money in the magic fingers!

Nemesis said...


Also, hee to Miss Parker.

"And it wasn't even real cream cheese, it was light cream cheese!"

Scully said...

I do it all for you, Mulder!

cherbear said...

What do you MEAN you want me to do another autopsy!!!

Miss Parker said...

Miss Nemesis, do I detect an X-Phile vibe coming from over yonder? We should be friends. ;) I just got the S6 dvds.

Dear Diary, today my heart leapt when Agent Scully suggested 'spontaneous human combustion.'

cherbear said...

I agree with Miss Parker; Miss Nemesis has got to be an XPhile.
Which seasons have you got on DVD now Parker?

blackjazz said...

Thanks for reminding me of the Dear Diary quote. It's one of Mulder's best lines.

I particularly like the following interchange too...

MULDER: What is that look, Scully?
SCULLY: I would have thought that after three years you'd know exactly what that look was.

Miss Parker said...

Cherbear, I have S3 and S6. As long as Costco keeps carrying them for 25 bucks, my plan will go according to ...plan.

Woman! Get back here and make me a samich!!

(BlackJazz, I love that quote too. So many good ones over the years).

Nemesis said...

Y'all found me out. I quit feeling so much of the love after Mulder left, but yes. I'm a fan.

cherbear said...

I think most of us quit feeling the love after Mulder left. It just wasn't the same. I TVo'ed the season 9 episodes cause I didn't watch them the first time around but ended up fastforwarding through them and deleting most because I just wasn't interested anymore.

Scully said...

The only reason to watch S9 is for the last ep, The Truth when M&S finally kiss, uninterrupted by that stupid bee.
