sent me the link to a blog called Heavy Tweed Jacket. It’s very, very sans socks.
Let’s face it — winning the lottery would be the shizz. This past weekend, a couple of my friends and I sat on the beach in a circle chatting about hitting the jackpot. A couple of great questions came up, and I decided to put my responses to each of these below. We noted, before the conversation got too serious, that this would be one of the mega lottery winnings. So let’s say the jackpot is $220 million and you take home somewhere around $100-110 million.
(1) What’s the first thing you would buy? You have to be able to have it in your possession within five hours.
(2) Where would your primary home be?
Wrightsville Beach, NC. I know folks are going to be curious about this one. You’ll be glad to know this is actually a swankier upgrade from my first thought, which would be Southport, NC. Basically, you can boil it down to this — I love being on the coast. It’s also important to me that I’m around my family and friends. Wrightsville would put be close to most of my friends and not any farther away from the ones who don’t live close by. And I’d be close to the fam.
(3) Limit yourself to two realistic (although realistic is relative at this point) vacation homes — where would those two be?
I would own a place in NYC. New York is one of my favorite places in the world. Having an abundance of money would make it even better. It wouldn’t have to be huge, but a nice place to hang on the weekend when I’m trying to go H.A.M.
The second place would be a small home in South France on the coast. I’ll have to do a little more research on where exactly it would be. I’ve narrowed it down some, but need more time.
(4) What car would you drive?
That’s all for now. I think there were some other questions, but these were the highlights.
I’m really putting this up simply because I think it’ll make the wife piece happy. Also, I do have a lot of female readers; they’ll get a kick out of this.
Reckner found out this weekend that our wedding will be featured on some wedding website called Style Me Pretty. According to Reckner, and other females who found out about this, it’s a big damn deal.
I’ll keep you posted.
… cool desk chair for under $100. Anyone have any suggestions?
