Spending my lotto millions*

750 million dollars.Can you believe it**?

So the first thing I'm gonna do is buy eveybody I know a car. But not just ANY old car like Oprah does when she personally ponies up the cash and buys a bunch of cars has her producer cut a deal with an auto manufacturer to supply free-of-charge a studio-audience worth of new cars.

No no no.

I shall give a specific car to a specific person. For instance:

Leandra will get a brand-new green & white Chrysler 300.
Visionary will get a brand-new black Lincoln Navigator with a plow.
Croila will get a pink humvee.
Kal will get a bright blue PT Cruiser
Rauf will get a zebra car, so he can go quietly and look like another zebra in the forest... (I think zebras don't live in forests, tho...)
Babzy will get a happy yellow stretch limosine with a gorgeous driver named Sven.
BBC will get a Diesel Dodge Ram Pickup truck in white - modified to run on french-fry oil.
Amanda will get a green VW beetle.

Und so weiter.

Just imagine it, guys! You open your door up and peek outside and see a brand-spanking-new set of wheels waiting for you!

I think the second thing I'm gonna do is buy houses. I want to own both my grandmothers houses, as well as the house I grew up in, and a very large, very secluded house somewhere in North Carolina - far enough away from the coast so as to not be hurricane-fodder.

Sure, that's a lot of houses, but my greed is insatiable - not to mention that 750 mil can buy a lot of real estate, which should be a good investment again after this current crisis passes.



Tomorrow I will go looking for furniture...

*Long before even buying a ticket.

**I hope not!! I don't believe ya'll are THAT gullible...

333 days.
Grampa used to drink warm "333" beer. I shall take this as an omen.

    Oooooooh! A pink car! Mind you, I had to google what the heck a humvee is. And much as it is sooooo kind of you to offer me one, when you win the lottery that is, I dunno if I could park it :-( I'm RUBBISH at parking!

    Thanks hon, but I don't want a new truck, too much pollution is created in making new vehicles and my old one should last the rest of my driving days being as I often use only one tank of fuel a month.

    Treat yourself to a really good camera instead, and send the difference to a charity.

    On second thought. There is getting to be some pretty decent electric cars on the market.

    If I had one of them I would only have to use the truck for camping and a few other little things.

    Yeah, I would love an electric. Actually what I would like is enough money to modify a Pinto or Toyota to all electric.

    The best electrics are being built by 'backyard tinkerers' and not the auto companies.

    Gosh! And I just won $800 Mil!! Then I woke up.

    But not before I was able to buy every single network (they were on sale), and fire everybody that ever pissed me off!

    Lot's of job openings coming up.:)

    I got to see one of those cars. Wow. Pretty posh. I would look good in one of those. Leather and air I assume? I could just sit inside and smell the car all day. Very pretty.

    750 mill eh? That'd keep me in beer and curry for a few months

    I see that it is still winter over there. It's been so nice here.

    Ohhh Youuu. That is the sweetest offer I've ever had. Imagine a happy colour to cheer me up. A limo that I don't need to drive, myself. And Sven. Ohhhhh Baby! I think he does massages, too. Is the limo big enough to carry a massage table? I think so.
