Well, first off I would have to start with some research, seeing as I have never purchased a lottery ticket before. But I have been tempted to buy them, so I do have thoughts on what I would do.

First and foremost I would pay off all my debt, then I would set aside enough to cover the rest of grad school. I would definitely forgive any debts owed to me. I would like to create college funds for my seven nieces and nephews. Then I would spread some money love around among my family and friends. I would give a bunch away  to charity. I know everyone says that, and I am too selfish to give it all away I freely admit that, but with that much money how can you not do something good with part of it? I know I would give some to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and to Shelterbox (a new one I discovered thanks to Maureen), but I would have to do some research to decide where else to donate. And to be really boring I would invest/save a very large chunk of it.

Now the list of possible frivolous things I would like to do:
  • A big trip to New York City would be in order. I have been there several times, but this would be in style, staying at the Plaza one night or something like that. I would see every show (the ones that appealed to me) that was playing there at least once.
  • I would love to make a list of all the national Broadway tours and local community theater productions over a month or two and do a ginormous road trip around the country just going wherever the shows are.
  • I would buy every cast album I don't own yet that I have ever wanted or even heard in passing.
  • I would finally make it to France and Italy, and a whole crap ton of other places.
  • I would take each of my two best friends, Chelsea & my EEB, on a trip wherever they wanted to go, all expenses paid.
  • I would like to buy a house, but it all depends on when this big win happens. I don't want to live in Omaha, but I am here for the next two years or so. After that though ... wherever I end up I would buy a house, not big 'cause I don't need it, but cute and stuff. The biggest room in the house would be the library.
  • I would pay whatever it cost to create the most beautiful library in my home,with floor to ceiling shelves, tons of interesting reading nooks. And at least one ladder ... there has to be a ladder ... with wheels.
  • Then I would fill it with all the books I've read or could ever want to read (though I already have a good jump on that part).
And ... that's all I have right now. You can tell where my interests lie. Maybe I will add to this later as I think of stuff, but I think this is a pretty damn good start.

Get this. Just today I was daydreaming about having a HUGE library with walls filled to the ceiling with books...and a ladder. Naturally.

A beautiful library would be high on my list too! Beauty and the Beast style, or maybe a cosier room with comfy over-stuffed armchairs and a log fire - bliss!
