Dreaming of $640 Million

(SIDENOTE: Today is National Cleavage Day.  Apparently it has something to do with Breast Cancer Awareness?  I’m not loving it.  I can think of probably 640 million other more productive ways to help eliminate breast cancer).

I would be lying if said I didn’t want to win the lottery.

If you handle things right, you would never have to worry about money again.

Although, to suddenly have that much money does seem a little overwhelming.   I know it would probably “change” me and I would never give enough to satisfy everyone, though I think Aaron and I would be responsible enough to not make decisions that spiral us into a cycle of ruin.

And even after I pay for my college debt, my sisters’ college debt, donate enough to get a building named after me at my college (“Where are you living this year?” “I live in Amy Hall!”), start a charitable foundation, and stay in the penthouse suite of the swankiest hotel in Monaco, there should still be some cash left over.  $640 million is a LOT of money.  Even Beyonce and Jay-Z would have to work hard for 10 years to rack up that kind of cash.

So, what to do with all this money?

Here are my thoughts:

1)A DeLorean.  And some plutonium.  I want to see 1955, too, Marty.

2) Ticket to Space.  There is really no good reason for this considering there isn’t a whole lot to see or do.  But I kind of want to anyway.

3) A Night with Johnny Depp.  But only if he agrees to talk  in Pirate the whole time.  Otherwise, no deal.

4) A pool bar.  Is anything else really necessary?

5) A diamond tennis bracelet.  Sorry. I really wouldn’t be able to help myself.

6) A rundown motel right on Historic Route 66 in Albuquerque so I could convert it into a hip, mid-century modern pool bar and boutique hotel.

7) An entry into all of my Bucket List marathons.  Affording to travel to Nike Women’s in San Francisco would not be an issue two weeks after visiting Chicago. And hey, why not stop by Paris in between?

8) And the usual LouisVuittonPuppyCarrierLouboutinShoesRolexandArmaniSuitForAaron PorchePartyBoatHouseinMalibuNewYorkPenthouseEtc.

What Would you buy with $640 million?

    • I’ve been doing that all day too! First I goggled “weird expensive things to buy.” But really, looking at islands is much prettier than looking at million dollar personal tanks.

  1. Gosh, I know. We’ve been planning on winning all week long! I can’t imagine what one million would do to my life, let alone an endless sum of money. My husband’s all for the private island. I am looking forward to spa days once a week (with champagne and chocolates). AND never having to clean my house again!
