Friday Five

It's that time again:

You have just won one million dollars:

1. Who do you call first?
Well, Kevin if he happened to not be around. Then probably some friends.

2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?
I would also seriously consider a fancy-colored diamond, but I don't want to spend it all in one place.

3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?
A Vandercook printing press. With some type to go with it. And some very large men to move it into my house (it weighs about a ton, and I'm not speaking euphemistically). That would be for Kevin, although I can't say I wouldn't enjoy it myself.

4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?
You know, in this day and age, a million dollars isn't all that much. This would be a different question if it were a billion. Honestly, I wouldn't give it away. You can't start with some family members or friends without incurring jealousy. It's just not fair. I would throw a bigass party and invite everyone.

5. Do you invest any? If so, how?
I would definitely invest a lot of it. As far as how, I don't understand any of that and have no desire to learn. I'd hire a financial advisor and let him go to town with it.
