wow- you need help-

Mega MillionsAnd she is so right! I need to win the lottery, preferably more than the current $19 Mil jackpot, but we’re (my family) playing anyway. (How nice of us to the government.)

We played faithfully, and I worked on my karma, figured out what good I would do with the money, etc. But we still lost! There were two winners, one being a truck driver from Georgia. Grr.

But come on lottery! I know you’ll get me. I’ll accept any amount of several millions, really, don’t think I’m selfish.

Not at all, here’s what I would do with my own $390 million (reduced after taxes and split three ways with my parents et moi):

  1. Put most in my savings account STAT to start earning interest before I decide what to invest in. My “spending money” will sit there, too, until I transfer it to checking to spend it baby!
  2. Give three whole million to my best friend! He’d be set! (Although he tells me to tell the gods I’d give him nothing, since he’s bad luck. I just can’t lie though! I’m too giving.)
  3. Pay off all my debts. (I can’t believe I racked it all up this year!) Oh, lord, do I need you lottery!
  4. Buy a condo in Florida, a house in the suburbs of Boston, and a place on Cape Cod. And that’s it! Until I eventually get a place in/near NYC.
  5. Start an abused animal rehabilitation/foster/adoption organization. I even picked out its name and .org domain. (No, I didn’t buy the domain, heh, but I hope no one takes it.) I wouldn’t really be able to physically volunteer much, but I would constantly donate “designer” dog toys and organic healthy food. And dog water. They make special bottled water for dogs that’s much healthier, and I think that’s good.
  6. Buy every single handbag on my wish list, plus two Hermès Birkins.
  7. Actually start buying designer clothing, but you know what—I’ll still get bargains at Forever 21 and H&M! How ’bout that?! I won’t be too spoiled.
  8. Donate gads of money into the network and hope to see a return.
  9. Put family, friends, and talented bloggers, etc., to work and pay an overly fair salary.

Not to mention my mums - who is disabled from an accident and really struggling - would no longer need to worry about money.

You see, I would be the best candidate to win the lottery, because I will save animals, give broke people full time jobs (or pay them like it), move the economy, be a great bill-receiver (is that a thing?), and have the money to be near different friends and family at different times more often. It will all go back in some way or another.

Chloe BagAnd I can have handbags, muah ha ha. I’ll never need a ban. Although - YES! - I will restrict myself. It’s true. Not too many exotics and only expensive bags that are dreams! Oh and no waste-of-money cheap bags. Bah.

So - what would you do with Mega Millions $$$? But don’t make it sound to good, because I need to deserve it the most!
