Goodbye Blogosphere

I hate to say it, but this is my last post. That’s right, I'm done blogging. And while I'll miss you all greatly, I've decided to take a few years to travel the world and sip drinks with umbrellas. Why you ask? Well, aside from the obvious reasons, it's because I'M RICH BITCH! I won the lottery! Read it and weep suckas:

We happily announce to you the draw (1068) of the UK NATIONAL LOTTERY,online Sweepstakes International program held in May 2007 as part of our Monthly Promotion. Your e-mail address attached to ticket number: 56475600545188 with Serial number 5368/02 drew the lucky numbers:07-10-22-24-34-44 (Bonus number 18) which subsequently won you the lottery in the 1st category i.e match 6. You have therefore been approved to claim a total sum of £2,532,137 (Two million, Five hundred and Thirty Two Thousand, One Hundred and Thirty Seven pounds sterling) in cash credited to fil XYC /26500460037/08.

My prayers have finally been answered! And all I have to do to collect my winnings is send them my social security and bank account numbers! The crazy thing is, I don’t even remember entering this lottery. But, why would they lie? I do have a drinking a problem. I was probably drunk and just don't remember. Whatever the case, it doesn't matter. I won!

And, I'm no dummy. I know a fraud when I see one. I mean seriously, the widow from South Africa who desperately wants to transfer her millions into my account...definitely a scam. The Brazilian banker who's in charge of multi-millions, but needs my help...what am I stupid? And the heir in the Bujumbura refugee camp...please.

Peace out peeps! I'll try to post pics while touring the French Riviera.

You'll need someone to carry your bags....I'm your girl! Tell me when & where & I'll be there with bells on.

Signed,
Your new personal assistant.

PS - Do I get a clothing allowance?

Lacy:
No, I’m not kidding! I would never joke about such a thing!

The job is yours! My first stop is Amsterdam, meet me there! And a clothing allowance? Please! Would I allow my assistant to walk around in rags? Jewelry, shoes, cars, you name it, it’s yours...

Sean said...

Uhm... I won that lottery twice already. Still broke. Still blogging. See you tomorrow Leila?

Lacy said...

I hope for your sake it's real!!! I was telling hubs about it yesterday!

SA D. said...

Leila,

Definitely not a scam. I won it twice too. I've been a little busy and haven't had time to pick up my winnings, but no doubt they are there just waiting for me, and collecting interest to boot, I suspect!

Congratulations!

Dave

P.S. Lacy, did you know that "gullible" is the only word in the English language that's not in the dictionary? Really. Look it up if you don't believe me. ;)

lambgoat said...

congrats! Welcome to the club! I've won several of these. I'm just waiting for the right day to quit my job and stuff. If the notification contains a ticket number, it's most positively valid.

Enjoy the beginning of the rest of your life!!!!!!!!

Lacy said...

Okay, I'm seriously confused now....everyone has won these things? Is this a big joke?! Leila...did you reaaaaally win this?

Sean said...

Oh Lacy! Bless your soul. It's obvious, you've got a good anti-spam program. That, or you use bluebottle.

Leila V. said...

I'm smelling a group vacation! All except for Lacy, that is.
But don't worry, Lacy, I'll save a spot on the Riveria for you. It's only a matter of time before you win too!

Addie said...

I'm there!! I would have chimed in earlier but the isp at work seems to think blogger.com is evil or something. They're on to me...no more blogging at work :o(
Congrats on the "win" Leila! Can we make a stop in Prague? I've always wanted to see Prague...

Sean said...

I like the Prague idea! I've always wanted to player checkers against the Checks!

Lacy said...

oookay, okay, I get it. Man...ya'll I was totally convinced Leila was bathing in hundred dollar bills.

*sigh. I'm such a friggin dork.

Leila V. said...

Addie:
Don't those supervisors have anything better to do than monitor our online activity! Damn them! Oh, and I'm totally down for Prague.

Sean:
Checkers with the Checks, that does have a ring to it!

Lacy:
That's why we love you! If only I was bathing in hundred dollar bills! I'd quit my job and blog full time. A girl can dream, I guess.

Lacy said...

I wondered about that...I was all..."dude, if I won a couple million, I'd blog all the ever lovin' time!"

You should know, my heart sank at the thought of you leaving us! Never leave, o leila of the blog! Never leave!!
