If I Had a Million Dollars...

I'm listening to The Barenaked Ladies while I study, and remembering the very first time I ever heard them. It's not that interesting of a story, so I'll spare you...but my roommate during my freshman year of college (back in The Day) introduced me to them. In return I gave her Danzig, Nitzer Ebb, NiN, and Meat Beat Manifesto. Fair trade? Probably not.

Anyhoo, I was listening to that song "If I Had a Million Dollars" and thinking about what I'd do if I had a million dollars. And then I thought, we should have a contest! Well, not a contest, but everyone should leave their idea in the comments about what they'd do if they had a million dollars...for those people that lurk, this is the perfect opportunity to leave a comment and entertain me as I try to learn the vagaries of Miranda and its progeny.

If I had a million dollars I would buy Mike Rowe. I would go to every Jimmy Buffett concert for a year. I would fund a no-kill animal shelter for a year. I would also buy some big, fat, diamond-y jewelry, a bedazzler, a new bedspread, a dog, a pink sweater for the dog, my very own fountain drink machine full of Diet Coke, LQ's services as my dealer personal cupcake chef, and a round-the-world trip with M. where she would be all worldly and sophisticated and adventurous and I would spend the majority of the time holed up in hotel rooms refusing to eat the local food and trying to find a channel with American shows. I would drop out of law school, pay off my student loans, and learn to blow glass...I would be the world's foremost maker of all things sparkly and useless.

What would you do?
