Aust. Stimulus Package

So the good old Australian government has started handing out up to $950 to many Australians, no strings attached!! They want to stimulate the economy so tell me, how are you going to use your cash?

I still don't know. Maybe save it for the tour, buy a laptop, or a Dyson, maybe get a bitchin' tattoo, put it towards a holiday. . . . . pay some bills

$950 would buy some pretty good booze, perhaps a prostitute or two.

^ haha Een.. Fry would buy 950 cups of coffee

Lauren and I both get 900, so we are buying a bitchin stainless steel 2-door fridge with water and ice dispenser, and that kool click-down door for wine bottles.

LOL!

Anyway, the whole point of the money is to spend it. Saving it would be counterproductive to the purpose of the stimulus package.

Thanks to a screw-up by ol' Ruddy, I might be getting two sets. Something to do with being a part-time student.

I've already put away $500 to eventually get a trip overseas, I spend enough money in my pocket as it is.

It doesn't buy me a job, and other than inject cash into retail (perhaps via some freed up credit cards) I don't really see how it would work (from an economically illiterate point of view).

I'm spending mine on getting my car serviced, registration, and insurance; and a prostitute.

I got $1000 last November from the first package and $950 from this one. I'm going on a teaching practicuum (most likely to Tamworth) for uni later in the year, so that will cover the accommodation, transport etc. I also need to pay car registration and insurance. Hopefully, I'll have some left over for a possible U2 tour next year too.

I'm still dubious I'll even get the money, but admittedly it does seem like I fit in the box this time.

I'll be spending the money on deep-level research to allow me to post even more and sharper threads here at Lemonade stand.



















Guys.


No, I'll save it, probably. In fact, definitely.
