Of course not, you know you're invited...you just won't get a chair since you're on the fence LOL!!!! (duh, that was corny)

I was thinking, maybe we'll invite Brad too (I'm already buying Johnny Depp and Joe Elliott, I may as well buy the other two while I'm at it), then they can mud wrestle or something (wait girls do that...what do we get the guys to do?) ...we can place bets on it too.

I'm all for it. Bring 'em all. And, who says guys can't mud wrestle? Could be pretty doggone entertaining. Don't worry about the chair. I can bring my camp chair. It's very comfy, even has cup holders. A coke in one, and a bag of peanut m&m's in the other, and I'll be happy. Oh, and maybe my binoculars, in case I'm sitting in the back of the room. Then I won't miss anything! (See, you're not the only one who can be corny. )

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.
Of course you can come.

And thanks for the chair Pixieschmoo...

...and we'll need somebody who speaks Italian. I've got friends in Perugia...(we don't want to pay the tourist tax in the Roman cafe and bistros!)

Your welcome Chaz (I hope you enjoy that comfy chair, I spent a lot of money on it)

Chaz, I also know a little Italian, but you'd have to keep in contact with me by phone (since I can't stand flying, I wouldn't actually be going with you guys).

CelticLady, I'm down with the mud wrestling, but of course, someone needs to wipe them clean afterward...... (we'll do a raffle for that)..... Oh and who gets to take them home at the end of the night? Oh wait, that would be ME since I now OWN THEM!!!!! Go me, go me....okay, I'll share (but only MM and BP)

Did I mention that with all this money, my husband would have a "pad" of his own to go hang out in while we held the mud wrestling competitions. No famous woman for him of course (I might be rich, but I'm not stupid)! LOL

If I won the lottery I would
1. pay off my parents house.
2. pay off my sister an my student loans
3.buy a new car
4. invest some of the money
5.go on a shopping spree
I would also ignore the money hungry family members and friends that want to suddenly become my best friend.

It's ok - we're taking an ocean liner. Cunard line. Sister Wendy's not big on flying either, but I've talked her into some fine dining. She's earned it. She's going to be giving a slide show on The Italian Renaissance / Michaelangelo and The Medicis every afternoon at 4 in that little conference room off the **** deck.

1. Buy a 17,000 square foot super-mansion about 10 miles away for $4.8 million
2. Pay off rest of parents mortage and buy them a 4 or 5 year old $1.3 million McMansion in a subdivision about a mile away from home
3. Get myself a Lincoln Navigator, a BMW z4 and a Jeep Commander (for times I don't feel like driving an expensive car)
4. Pay off older brothers mortage and get him and his girlfriend a bigger house (if they want it)
5. Pay for rest of younger brothers college
6. Buy cars for people (Audi A6 for dad, grand cherokee for mom, lexus rx400h for little brother, mazda 6 for older cause thats what he wants)
7. Buy vacation house in the country and another in a warm climate (maybe Miami or bahamas)


Then who knows what to do with the rest...but I won't quick my job since im just starting a fulltime job (may college grad) as a real estate estate.

You've GOT to spring for a comfy chair that hugs you when you sit in it!!! What's really weird in my house is that my formal living room set is the most comfortable furniture in the house. The loveseat just pulls you in and wraps you up in sofa-love!! With a blanket thrown over me and my legs curled up beneath me while snug on that love seat...life is bliss!
