I’m pretty sure I used

I’m pretty sure I used up at least a month’s worth of luck today. This morning I received word that the potential country home is now my country home. I’ll go tomorrow morning to fill out the papers. Wait… not mine, really, as it is a rental, but as they say, possession is nine tenths of something or other. Apparently many peoiple looked into it, but I’m the winner. Then I had lunch out with many of my coworkers, and my boss picked up the tab. After work, I picked up a pair of choice hockey tickets (Toronto at Atlanta on Feb 29). Then, to round off the day, I made it all the way through the Who Wants to be a Millionare questions. And this was even more of a fluke than the first time I did it last month… I managed to place four teas in order based on the countries that made them famous moving from West to East starting in the United States. Hopefully, I’ve got a bit of luck left in me, because I now have to wait by the phone for three hours tomorrow for Regis to call and invite me to New York. Of course,it’s a bit more complicated than that, but I’ll be waiting by the phone like a good boy. (No fair calling me and pretending to be Regis. Really.) For those of you interested, I’ll be posting more specifics about the house over the next week. Hopefully I’ll be able to borrow a digital camera and all. I’m very excited about the whole thing.

My luck continued this morning.

My luck continued this morning. When I went to sign my new lease, I found out that the house has several well-producing peach trees, several more prolific pecan trees, and (if I’m good) I can even get a kitty to live with me. All three were pleasant suprises. I then went home to wait by the phone for Regis to call and… nothing happened. No call today. I guess I’ll just have to try again. Sigh.
