Default Aaahh...the very thought of it.......



1. Tell those credit card/car loan companies to take a flying leap and pay those mobsters off!

2. Finally stop renting and buy a home in Washinton, DC + buy a home in Malibu Beach, CA + buy a home in Canada + buy a home in England..then travel between all of them whenever it suited my fancy.

3. Buy my own jet so my flight crew can fly to all of my new homes.

4. Of course, in my new homes: maid service..personal chef...personal fitness trainer...all new wardrobe.

5. Start my own motion picture studio where undiscovered talent could showcase their work.

6. Save.

7. Invest.

8. Create my own charity anonimously and pay off peoples' debts without them knowing it was from my organization.

9. Just mentally and spiritually relax.

10. Last, but never least, Take care of my son and daughter so they never have to worry again.

Aahh...now I have to prepare for work on Monday...it was fun while it lasted.

Thanks for the reminder, Fleeing FL. I forgot about buying the Lear Jet. Ya think John Travolta would pilot for me?

Bad news...I checked my ticket. I'm still here, which means I haven't won... yet.

If i won the lottery, i'd go to work the next day with an ice-cooler full of beer. I'd sit on my ice-cooler and drink away until security hauls me out of 'work'!

Right now I have had it with most of my family..so they would not get one darn penny. Some would go to taking care of my kids, the rest to charity.

My sure (most) of my family is straight. Well the ones who want something out of life or are trying to do something.
Give some money to charity. (For real!)
Buy a house.
Buy me a new car.
Set the rest back. Maybe invest a little.
