Just planning ahead

I've been tagged by Wolfgang for this meme about what I do with $1,000,000.00!

Hmmm! Interesting proposition!

I can't say that I'm totally prepared for this, but I have to admit that I've asked myself this question on several occasions.

Here goes then:

  1. Make a fund to ensure my folks have enough to take them through old age without needing anything.
  2. Buy a second house, and rent my current one out.
  3. Buy me a beach house in Salvador de Bahia in Brazil. A luxurious love nest for my girl and I.
  4. Buy some sun tan lotion, swimming trunks, hawaianas and a beach towel. I somehow don't think I'll need to work a lot after getting my $1,000,000.00!!!
  5. Invest a large chunk through a trusty stockbroker, in a guaranteed capital, high return investment. (This is a fictional scenario anyway,is it not?)

  6. Visit all my blogging pals around the world, introduce them to me and you know who, and at least buy you guys dinner in the restaurant of your choice.
  7. Three weeks after giving no sign of life, I'd walk into the office to return my keys, and wish them all a good life!
  8. Find some kind of a job/work to at least keep the blood flowing to my brain.

My tagees are the following:
