The lottery fever that swept the country for the better part of two weeks is now over. I didn't win, so I will be back at work on Monday. Think of it. Had no one won last night, the potential jackpot could have been close to $975 million by end of business on Tuesday. Almost a billion dollars for a lottery. Unreal. Now, at work, I coordinated our early retirement efforts and bought $176 worth of tickets. The split for Friday's jackpot would have ended up split 44 ways resulting in around $8 million each. A far cry from $640 million, but still appreciated.
My own efforts with my family resulted in a few Mega Number hits but no jackpot. I even played Hurley's numbers from LOST and got this as a fortune from dinner on Friday night.

Craft Beer Swap 2012
It's happening again, our first beer swap at the year. Plenty of craft beer to drown our lottery sorrows in since we lost. My contribution was Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz. Other selections are Victory Whirlwind, Breckenridge Pandora's Bock, Anchor Bock, Draai Laag Simon Girty, Blue Point Spring Ale, Anderson Valley Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema, Penn Marzen, Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock, Dogfish Head Aprihop, and Victory Headwaters Pale Ale.
So far, I've had my own and the Whirlwind Wit Bier. Wasn't a big fan of the Eurotrash Pilz, but the Whirlwind Wit was not too bad.
Non Runner Sticker Takes Off... Running
Awhile back, I released a sticker on my stores celebrating the fact that not everyone can run a marathon. Hell, not everyone WANTS to run a marathon. As I sat in traffic, I noticed cars with those 26.2 and 13.1 stickers on them. It didn't take long to figure out the owner was a marathon or a half marathon runner. Personally, I have no interest in puking and chafed nipples. So, the lazy entrepreneur strikes again.
0.0 Non Runner Pack of four stickers
Don't laugh. It's become my best selling item recently.
