Want some cash?

I was brainstorming about an idea with BFF Carol the other day and I want to see what you all think. I want to do a Mom o Matic Lotteria.

The Idea:
  • Anyone can put money into the Lotteria pot via a PayPal button I'll put on this site.
  • When you enter the Lotteria your name will go into a bowl. One name for every $2 you toss into the Lotteria fund.
  • At the end of the month I'll video some impartial party drawing a name from the bowl and post it.
  • The name drawn wins the pot for that month. They get the whole thing less any PayPal fees.
  • I'll organize but won't be eligible to win myself.
  • The winner MUST spend that money on something fun and frivolous for themselves. No clothes for the kids or a night at Chuckie Cheese. Buy fancy underpants, a pack of smokes, a lipstick or lambskin condoms. Whatever you want, but it has to be a pampering purchase for you to enjoy.
What do you think? If enough people say they are game for this we'll do it for one month and see how it goes. I think it would be a blast. But I also think that The Search For The Next Pussycat Doll is riveting television so I may be alone on this.

I'm totally in, Lotta! Someone else should host one, too, so your name can get thrown in for thinking of such a selfless plan!

That sounds like a blast! I would definitely play, but are you sure there are no legal issues with that? Is that considered gambling? I dunno if it is or not, but it definitely sounds exciting!

Hell, put me in! Maybe I'll win enough to get that lipsuction or tummy tuck I've been needin'! Aim high is what I always say!

Oh yeah, tomorrow is our weigh in. Crap.

I think it sounds like a good idea, the next Pussycatdoll search - not such a good idea. I will have to start savin' my dollars.

Lotta said...

All - Yea! Keep the comments coming. If I get a few more yes's I'll do it.

Janet - Fun though. I'll do one and see how it goes. Maybe it will be a once a season thing if it's too hard to do every month.
