Are you a winner?

Do you consider yourself lucky when it comes to winning things? I have never been one to win things very often, but in March I won an ipod! I was blown away because I've wanted one for a long time. In fact, my boyfriend won a digi camcorder in March, too....very coincidental! Tell us about things you have won!

Wow, you are a lucky duck. I rarely win anything, but one time when I was a sophomore in high school I called into a radio station when they asked a question about like their top 7 or 8 countdown, or whatever. I rarely sit around and call into radio stations, I think that was the first time I'd ever done it, but on a whim I just said "I know the answer!" and called. I didn't even know what the prize was... But I called, I got through, and I got the answer right. I won tickets to see Switchfoot play, and I got to go to the soundcheck and meet them before hand. It was so awesome. I became a huge fan of Switchfoot after that, and of the song "I don't wanna be" by Gavin Degraw, because that was my winning answer!

I have only ever won one big prize. Way back in the 60's I won £250. It was like winning the lottery. We had just move into our first house and we were able to use the money to furnish it. Since then I have only one very small things in raffles like crystal bowls and chocolates.

I've never won anything in a contest like that - only in school contests, way back then, and those were based more on merit than on chance. So no, I don't consider myself to be "a winner" in that respect. ;)

I went gambling in Miami last week for the first time and walked away with $5 more than when I began. Ha, it's not much...but it paid for my lunch! Other than that...I won a vacation package for my honeymoon, but I never used it. There were too many rules and both people had to be 21 or older and my hubby was only 20...too bad huh? That is about the extent of my winnings though. Congrats on your ipod!

I have won a few item either through the internet or through community events. But I have time where I win nothing, it goes in cycles. I never won electronics or trips but maybe I will one day.
