Feedback Friday (#42)

Okay, here's one for ya . . .

Kathleen was asking me about Feedback Friday and even though I am about to bolt out the door for parts unknown . . . I wanted to post one, because I think it's actually pretty good.

The question this week is this -

If you were suddenly given $1,000 (no strings attached) what would you buy?

This is tricky, because it ain't no Donald Trump Lotto, so I don't want to hear all about how rich you are . . . 'cuz you ain't. It's one thousand bucks. Just enough to indulge one of those spending fantasies we all have bouncing around in the back of our minds.

So, let's hear all about what you would splurge on.

Should be fun - Ben O.

I'd pay for my bike (see latest post)in full and take it home...no wait, I'd take out for a ride, no longer fighting the wind, but making it.

I would move to an underprivileged country and live like a king!

No, no, no, the airfare would cost more than that...

Honestly, I'd send our daughter to her grandmother's house for a few days and splurge on a deluxe weekend getaway for me and my beloved. Stay at a nice hotel, get a massage, have a posh dinner, maybe rent a limo!

If there was money left, I'd probably put it in my iPod fund, which currently has about $20...

Since I'm bad and splurge more than I should, I'd be sending that $1000 straight to my credit card company. Sad, I know.

I'd buy a ticket to the US and stay in NYC for three-four days (surely not more than that with $1,000?). And while I was there I would find a job and stop that stupid overseas quest and that would be my life sorted at last.

Fill up both cars and buy a PEZ dispenser. That would pretty much cover 1K.

while i should be a responsible adult and be like kathleen and send it to my credit card company, i think i would take like half and go shopping for duh clothes and shoes! and then take the other half and put towards our trip to Jamaica which we also can't afford

I spent about 1/2 that today on a project car. Sad thing is that I already have a project car taking up my garage. Starting to wonder how my wife can tolerate me.

Definitely a shopping spree - preferably shoes :)

My husband and I desperately need an entertainment cabinet for the TV and all it's 'friends'.
Right now, we have it sitting on a chest in the corner of the room with the stereo/dvd player perched next to it. It looks very collage dorm-room and I want an actual piece of furniture so I don't have to stare at it any more--I feel like the TV is begging me to turn it on.
Can I have my 1,000 dollars now?

The crack Procrastination Station prize department is down in the sub-basement this very second cutting checks to all who took time out their busy schedules to participate.

You can expect those sometime in the early part of 2017.

Thanks for playing!

Hey Ben.

I hope all is well.

I think I'd probably buy some scuba gear for myself and Miss Lasagna...

Take care out there!

Your Pal,

What say I go ahead and purchase the "plas" and put the "ma" on lay-away.

This nation was built on the abuse of credit.

Anyone? Bueller?

The smart thing for me to do would be to send it to the credit card companies. But who ever said I was smart? *grin* I would use it for a vacation, and a new tattoo.
