Have that Barenaked Ladies song as my car horn.

Seriously though, I'd really want to help out my dad. Get him a nice lot of land and plunk a house down on it for him and his girlfriend.

Then I'd do the same for myself and my brother.

I guess I'd travel a bit more as well

Well after taxes I'd have to move somewhere where that would actually buy a nice house, and buy one

Take my Mom back to Ireland, give her some $

Pay off my credit cards and other debts

Buy a better digital camera

Give some to charity, probably for abused women

Give all my clothes to charity and buy a smaller wardrobe of timeless, classic, good quality clothes

You know seeing so many mention helping their siblings I completely forgot about mine Would devise a way to give an equal amount to each one. There are 6 of them excluding me so that could get a bit pricey

Pay off my dad's house, my sister's house, and my boyfriend's house and all of our vehicles (and my mom's). Have a shopping spree at Best Buy and Barnes & Noble...and somewhere that sells Barbies. Sock away the rest and use as needed/desired.

I've thought about this a lot lately probably because we have a lottery pool at work and I drop $1 or $5 every week into the pool (it could happen!). Anyway, the initial thoughts should I find myself a little wealthier than I am now are:

-paying off my student loan

-pay off my parents' mortgage and give them a bunch of cash for their help over the years.

-pay off my sisters' mortgages and some starter money for my nieces and nephew's college funds

-buy a new computer, finally!!

-buy a 4 or 5 bedroom house somewhere outside of Chicago

-buy White Sox season tickets for my boyfriend

-save, save, save


I can't imagine my spending habits going out of control because I wasn't brought up on a lot of money. I know that saving is important.

but a few extra U2 concerts wouldn't hurt....

why is everyone so practical? Am I the only one that enjoys hookers, blow, and an occasional midget?

When I get sick of the hookers and blow, I'd get myself a pair skis that haul ass and a season pass and go ski all winter.

i look at my online statements about once or twice a week


I keep toying with the idea of buying a 5 speed mini cooper
but I tell my self I really don't need a second car

I have decided to buy a 50" flat screen instead of a 42"

a million
is not what it used to be

my mom inherited a shitload of money recently and has over a cool mil right now. It's not all that big a deal. Remember the grass is always greener!
