If I Ever Win the Lottery…

* – I’ll eliminate all of our credit card debt.

* – I’ll eliminate all of my student loan debt.

* – I’ll make sure Little Man’s post-high school education is taken care of.

* – I’ll invest so that even if a catastrophe happens, we’ll still be OK financially.

* – I’ll buy a large tract of secluded land on the shore of a lake.

* – I’ll build a custom-designed log home on that land.

* – I’ll buy one of the only 281 Jaguar XJ 220’s that were ever built.

(Hey, I just turned 40. I’m entitled to dealing with my midlife crisis now, aren’t I? 🙂 )

* – we will own a dog. A real dog. A Scottish Deerhound. And his name will be Strider (hey, I’m a Lord of the Rings geek. Kill me. 🙂 )

* – I will own at least these two guns:

hk-usp45

(note the silencer on the submachine gun. Even though I’ll be living on a large, secluded tract of land, I wanna make sure I won’t disturb my neighbors. 😉 )

* – I think I’d like to learn how to fly…

and then fly my very own Spitfire.

* – we’ll do a lot of traveling, of course.

First, for Little Man and Cookiemaker, Disney World.

Then England.

I love Italian food, so Italy only makes sense, right?

I’ve always wanted to go to Australia.

Who knows, maybe while we’re there I’ll even find the courage to do this:

(not bloody likely! 🙂 )

As long as we’re in the area, we might as well see New Zealand, too.

I’ve always wanted to go to Rio de Janeiro, too.

So, what would you do if you won the lottery?

  1. I think I would do pretty much the same as you, if I won the lottery. I would also add a significant amount of charitable giving to my wish list (church, my high school, college…)

    Italy is most definitely the first big trip I would take, but the kids would prefer Disney. My car? Hmmmm. I dunno. Something convertible. There’s a lovely red lotus that parks where I work…

  2. Excellent point! Much, MUCH charitable giving! The United Way, the Dana Farber Institute, the Red Cross, St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital, WHEB’s (a coastal NH-based rock radio station) Lend A Helping Can, and the Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation – for starters!

  3. Shure you can handle all that stuff? XJ220 – 217 mph? Able to steer?
