The Friday Five! (1/30/04)

Ahhh, the resurgence of the “If I had a million dollars/ if I had a million dollars” question.

You have just won one million dollars:

1. Who do you call first?

Can I assume TheMan knows? ‘Cuz y’all know he’s the first to know. I might buy him something super-duper first and THEN tell him but he’s my partner in crime: You always tell your partner in crime first. If not him…hmmmm. I’d be tempted to not tell anyone and do some anonymous gift giving of boggling proportions.

2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?

Oooo! Errr…hmmmm. I suppose we are talking a big ticket item here. Probably something I’ve always wanted yet never got because it would be a silly purchase. Totally me right? Fun stuff? How about I drop $1500 to $2000 on jewelry so I can have matching stuff? OH! And a keen jewelry box with lots of drawers and long things for necklaces and maybe ring pads too in some of the drawers and earring thingits to put each pair on. You know, maybe I’ll forget the jewelry and just buy me a snazzy jewelry hutch that can hold everything I have, stupid and expensive plus have room to grow. Yeah, I’ll stick with that.

3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?

Whoo! OK here’s the list:

TheMan: A boss house server.

Mumses: A masseuse who will come to her house once a week and give her a kick butt massage.

Mr. Paul: Oooo, a case of really old really good wine or a bottle of King’s Coronation Glenfiddich or something along that vein.

Sis: Someone to come and sit her critters at her house whenever she needs them too.

TheQ’s: I don’t know! Hee, maybe someone to come shovel all their snow so they don’t have to do it. Oh! I know, I’ll send them on a vacation to the Isle of Mann or maybe somewhere they haven’t been before.

DQ: A car that works.

Ahhh, don’t fret friends of mine…I got you all covered too. I’ll just spend some time listening and get you something you really really need or really really want that you just can’t afford or just can’t justify buying. I don’t know what that is exactly right now for each of you but gimmie a year or two and I’ll come up with some fun stuff.

4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?

Oh yeah! I’d give a good sizeable chunk to a worthy charity or maybe a few of them; set up trust funds for my friend’s kids, maybe start some sort of research grant at the U.

5. Do you invest any? If so, how?

I invest exactly half of the dough. I’m not sure in what, TheMan is the financial guru (my guru, he’s smarter than your guru is) so he’d be the one with the specifics but we’d have half of it sensibly invested for sure.

Last Year at the booniverse: It’s all just symptoms of the plague. I plan to play Diablo II for a while until I either get up and fix soup or fall asleep and nap and then get up and fix soup.

    What a wonderful idea, a weekly massage. I wouldn’t have thought of that. Thank you. Now just to get the mil.
