If you won TEN MILLION dollars in the lottery tomorrow ( After taxes.) What are five things you would buy? Link them here.

Here's mine. :)

1. http://www.corcoran.com/property/listing.aspx?Region=NYC&ListingID=1481629&ohDat=5/19/2009%2012:00:00%20AM;

I'd have my own NYC townhouse, and could rent out the other units for income. Yay!

2. http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro?mco=MTE3MDE

A macbook pro!

3. http://abd.disney.go.com/abd/en_US/region?name=NorthernEuropeOverviewPage

A trip to Italy hosted by Disney for little random and the fam. ;) We would go to Pompeii too.

4. http://www.lasikplus.com/?encSource=9407&gclid=COLi1PWLrZoCFQzxDAodeTIqdA -- Lasik eye surgery.

5. And I would go back too and finish college. Not sure where. Maybe NYU. I mean my millions just bought a gorgeous townhouse there, why not? ;)

Silly and serious answers all welcome. I've had a pretty crappy day. ( Had to put my cat down. He was dying, and really starting to feel pain, so it was time. I've never had to put down a pet before so this is a new and terrible experience.)

So any links you can send my way that might make me smile, or I should invest in when I win my millions because karmically it's about damn time something goes right, would be appreciated.

lol


Oh, and youtube:

I'm so sorry about your cat. *hug* I know how hard it can be. *HUG*

With 10 mil, I'd buy a house, and pay for it to be converted to fully-accessible. Fly everywhere first class. And then settle down to become a professional philanthropist. It would be awesome. We'd be eccentric!

Oh, and finally buy my imaginary Pirate Ship.

(I'm a sensible car girl)

2. A house in a nice part of Boston:

3. A wardrobe from this store:

4. Pay off my student loans/tuition

5. Vacations: Italy tour, and Wales/Scotland/Ireland/UK tour (not like a formalized tour so much as a long and amazing vacation:

http://www.britannia.com/travel/UK-london-tours.html

I'm so sorry about your kitten! It sounds like it is his time, though - and now you can welcome a new kitty who needs a home into your world, if it is right!

And one of these days I think I'll get another kitty, but I just can't right now. Miss my old guy too much. His sister has been putting on weight like crazy. She misses him too.

1. I'd finish college and pay off my student loans.
2. I'd buy really awesome things for the kids, maybe even set up trusts or something for them.
3. Buy a house, nothing too grand, something big enough for me a the kids, with maybe a little extra growing room.
4. a new car. Perferably a hybrid or electric
5. I'd definitely travel around the world.

I'm so sorry about your cat. Putting mine down was one of the hardest things I've done. /hugs

All I want in the whole world is a house and the financial security to start a family. So uh...a house and a baby? =P

Oh sweetheart, I'm so sorry about your kitty. He's thankfully not in pain anymore, but I know that pets are family and it's never ever easy to let them go.

I've been posting this link all over the place:

Our universe is fascinating. (And terrifying in a ... huge and terrifying way)!

1. I would buy a new house, to my exacting specifications, on an ass ton of land. On that land there would be trees with these for us AND the children AND guests!

http://weburbanist.com/2008/06/23/15-more-tree-houses/

2. I would travel, A LOT, and one of the places I would go is here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontevraud_Abbey

3. I would buy something for my love to start a theater company in:

http://imagegalleria.blogspot.com/2009/04/beautiful-theaters-of-world.html

-though, these are so gorgeous I might need more than 10 Million.

4. I would buy a castle!

http://www.castles-for-sale.com/sale/index.htm

5. I would buy barns and proper fences for my various animal hobbies. There are some beautiful designs out there.

http://www.cocustombuilder.com/


Though, in all honesty, I would probably be more frugal and just get a nice place to live, pay for kids education and future homes ect.. never have to work again that kind of thing.

1.http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-G.E.-Smith-Telecaster?sku=511892

A new telecastor, because I could. I'm nowhere near good enough to even touch one of these babies, but if I had the cash...

2.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Replica-Kit-Makes-Shelby-Cobra-Replica-1967-Shelby-Cobra-Replica_W0QQitemZ220408783003QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Cars_Trucks?hash=item335163209b&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=65%3A1%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

This is for my dad, because he's always wanted one of these cars, you can basicly out run anyone in one of these.

3.http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipod/family/ipod_classic?mco=MTIwMDQ

I really do want one of these, the one I have now is a hand-me down nano, and i'm constantly switching out what albums I want on it. With one of those babies, never again!

4.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_peace

Cheesy? yes, very much so. Still I'd dump money into what ever org. I could find that would be able to help bring about such change.

5.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spitfire

Funny how a war machine comes right after world peace, eh? I love old planes and would learn to fly specificly so I could fly one of these.

1) a new car, probably something Japanese, low maintenance and fuel efficient with great insurance that'll protect me against everything from small bumps to being crushed by dinosaurs

2) a HOUSE, something quaint and older looking but safe in a nice neighborhood with superior security system and insurance

3) (hire) a lawyer cos I would want to donate a lot of my money

4) a new computer with all the graphic and sound bells & whistles!!!! with a digital camera and software to boot

5) a new story on my parent's house like they've been wanting for a while

Sorry for the loss of your kitty, I had a guy maiming my kittens in the neighborhood, jerks and monsters they are

I had to put my fiance's cat down (he couldn't do it). He was the best cat ever, the only cat who ever loved me, so to speak. He'd great me with a roar-purr every morning, and every time I came home from somewhere. What a lovely creature.

I would buy a piece of land somewhere, reasonably far away from civilised society. Hopefully with an awesome old house on it. If not, I'd buy the materials to build one.

I'd buy all the books on my wish list.

I'd buy lots of film for my polaroid camera.

I'd buy myself a year, sailing the world with my man.

And I'd buy myself the services of a professional genealogist to trace my ancestry all the way back then.

i would buy some land in the middle of almost nowhere and design and build my own house. it would be fun! customize everything. not too big though, big houses are echoey.

i don't think i would want to change much. i wouldn't go out and buy a bunch of jewelry or cars or shoes.

i would put a lot of it away for retirement and then i would settle down in my custom house with my family and live my life as normally as possible. of course we would go around the world though. that would be amazing to see all major cities of the world and never really have to worry about being poor.

I'm sorry about your kitty. :(

Let's see...if I had 10 million dollars, I'd:

1. Buy lots and lots of paint and a whole lot of brushes.
Loads of house paint (to paint, obviously XD), and loads of acrylic (to aid me in my artsy-fartsy crafts). And lots of lots of brushes, from a teensy-tiny brush to a brush as big as my arm.

2. Buy a really big tablet PC.
So I can actually draw ON it!

3. Buy enough plane tickets for my host family to all come to the US.
'Cause the only place they've been is Hawaii, and I'm several thousand miles away from that. XD

4. Agree with you, Lasik. 'Cause seriously, at this rate I'm gonna be blind by the time I'm 35.

5. Buy my gram's house (and use all that paint to update it), and move in with my boyfriend. XD

And that's still under one million, let alone 10. xD
