I am not a Millionaire

March 31, 2012

I did not win the world record breaking $640 million Mega Millions jackpot. My odd’s were 1 in 176 million against it, but it’s always nice to dream. I would love to get the chance to test the idiom “Money can’t buy happiness”. I’m willing to bet I could buy a whole lot of happiness with that kind of money. First I’d buy some land. A ranch maybe. Then I’d put together a group dedicated to the rescue and care of animals. Of course I’d do the other things that everyone else says too. I’d buy my parents a house. I’d pay off my bills, and my family’s bills. I’d buy a truck. I’d  get a couple rescue dogs and cats. I’d go to all the bike rallies I haven’t yet been to. I’d start crossing off items on my bucket list, and start adding more. I’d give more, travel more, play more, sleep better, and live more. Would I be happier?

Damn right I would be.

I’ve heard you can’t win If you don’t play. Of course, even if you play, you can’t win unless you’re very, very lucky.

iPad iEnvy

March 4, 2011

I want one. Truly. And, I know I would use it every day, and night, and morning and after lunch too. I’ve got friends who have them, and love them. My Uncle has one. The iPad 2 has  front and rear facing HD cameras, a dual core chip, so it’s twice as fast as the original. It’s also thinner and lighter. (drool) I want one.

I was watching Conan last night and he had a funny parody of Apple’s new product announcement video. You can see it here. You can see the original Apple video here.
