You know, I've been ever so hopeful that the economic slump we're suffering through will turn itself around. That's the teeny tiny optimist in me talking. But this morning, I got news that just really depressed me.

What in the world could ever sway my ever-so-sunny disposition, you ask? Swiss Lotto Netherlands e-mailed me to say:

That works out to be just $1,101,300.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that's not a lot of money and I'm not trying to be greedy. I'm not saying I'm above taking a million dollars. Sheesh. I'd take five dollars off of you if you offered it. But...

it just made me wistful about those days when foreign lotteries from Spain, Australia and the Netherlands used to award me millions of Euros. I'm talking about those days when I'd win three or four foreign lotteries a week and each one of them awarded me at least a million Euros.

(sigh)

I guess those days of big jackpots are over.

Seriously, what is this world coming to when the bad economy even affects the fake money I'm getting? That is depressing, indeed.
