I'd buy a few pieces of better furniture too, darn it.

I'm starting to sound like my father (this is just inevitable, I suppose) there isn't a single chair in the house I can sit in comfortably - with the exception of the chairs on the deck...

More likely Bertrand Russell or Kurt Vonnegut...

One thing I'd do is I'd eat out for every single meal. I hate cooking and there are so many restaurants I want to try.

I'd also take a bath in a tub of money, just because I could.

Oh, did I mention....I don't even play the lottery (he he he he )

But if I did:

Chaz, I'd buy you your furniture

All the Marks, I'd fly you in to a resort so you could all meet and discuss your many words of wisdom (we'd have to videoconference this for everyone else in the forum)

And I'd throw one huge freakin' bash for all my gal pals and hire Matthew McConaughey to play the bongos (inside joke)!!!!!!

What a wonderful idea! I just love Sister Wendy! (May I tag along?)

This is a terrific idea for a thread! What comes to mind so far is...

> Open centers to uplift and heal the spirits and bodies of abused and neglected children.

> Hire an entire staff to clean, cook, do laundry, tend to the yard - handle all the drudgery of life.

> Travel to as many destinations on this beautiful planet of ours as one could possibly fit into a lifetime.

> Send ten kids to college who would not otherwise be able to go.

There's a start.

So, you wouldn't mind if I come to your bash, even if I can't make up my mind between McConauhey and Pitt?
