lists

Debra had a thing about lists on her blog and somewhere, mentioned listing 10 things you'd do if you won the lottery. Not sure I can think of ten, but if we are being shamelessly self-indulgent here, let me see...not in any particular order... 1) redo the kitchen (considering how little I cook, this might sound rather silly, but - hey) 2) buy a real espresso machine and have an endless supply of Italian beans delivered to my door every week. 3) buy an apartment in Manhattan 4) buy an apartment in Paris 5) buy ART 6) fly first class, always 7) buy a big old factory building and renovate it for dirt cheap artists' studios and a gorgeous visual arts center 8) donate money to a variety of arts organizations 9) donate money to build a stem cell research center 10) pay off all existing mortgages in the family What would YOU do? Here's another list for you: 10 things you could do without. Here are 5 of mine... 1) standing in line at the post office 2) standing in line at the supermarket 3) waiting outside the shower for the water to get hot enough 4) the question "how are you today?" from a salesperson 5) the phrase "have a nice day."

Ya know.. in the original story, the woman who started the "lottery list" discovered that she could most of the things she wanted to in one way or another.. and had worked through over half of her lottery list.

I guess you could buy an "average" espresso machine... but that flat in Paris?? (maybe Paris, Texas? Or a timeshare??)) Maybe not.

Considering that most times I get on a plane it's for an 11 hour flight, I am right there with you on the fly first class wish! That's what I'd do.

Interesting concept, Debra - I'll work on it. But this is fantasy, remember...

Hi Rayna,
I'm with you on 1,5,7,8,9,and 10. I could live without the apts in Manhatten and Paris (well, maybe!), but then if I had those I would definitely want to be flying first class, so those go hand'n'hand I suppose. Isn't it nice to dream!! The artists' studio is often a dream of mine, and then of course the stem cell research would be such a great thing.
Thanks for good food for thought...yes, I could do without waiting for the shower water to warm up...that is such a waste of time and water!
Oh, and "Have a nice day"! LOL
