Money

I had a real feeling last week as I was buying a ticket for the EuroMillions draw. "This is it," I thought, as I walked to the car. "I'm actually going to win this thing." It was the strangest feeling - tangible; like a pre-sneeze tickle in the nose.

The way we live now, by Peter York: Seriously bling

The point about bling is that everything's meant to register as seriously expensive. Magnums of Cristal, Maybach limos, private jets, Vertu jewelled cell phones. All branded. It's the absolute opposite of anything thoughtful, middle-class, laid-back or drabbed-off. The original bling boys were from the roughest projects in the Bronx or Chicago Southside and they wanted what they'd seen in films and ads, without the remotest ironic take on it. (Over-educated, lucky people often have an ironic take on bling, like the heir to an earldom who has valuable photographs of his 1990s black idols in his drawing room).
