Riches.......

The lotto here has been climbing now for weeks,its now 8 million and i forgot to play it and its too late i hope it rolls over again and reaches to 10 million thats about 1.5 million US.

I wish i could win the lotto the problem is i don't ever remember to play it or if i decide to go play it if there is a line i just wouldn't bother I don't know how i expect to win with that attitude. The thing is I have never won anything ever i think i am one of those people who has to work hard for everything and i don't mind at all i think you appreciate things better i know what being poor is when my dad left us in my early teens we had to go without even electricity sometimes we had bare minimum to eat there was this one time my sister came home crying because she saw our dad grocery shopping with his girlfriend and we barely had anything thats why the first thing i will do if ever i win the lotto is i'll buy my mother a house with a full staff she deserves it for being so strong and holding it together during does times.

People always say they will keep their job not me i can't wait to quit my job and go to school full time and do a lot of traveling you know like for one year go to all the carnival events all over the world for one year Nottinghill in London, Brazil, Miami, Caribana, DC even CropOver. Oh and i want a house with a swiming pool don't ask me why because i can't swim i guess i'll hire a cute Tyson Beckford look alike pool boy.

I once met a lady who won the lotto she was a struggling single parent and she won she bought a house in Trinidad and another one in another island and was able to take care of her kids she said the only regret she had was the amount of people she gave her money away to she said people would approach her with all kind of schemes to get her to give them money she said she squandered a lot of it and if she had to do it again she would not tell a soul that she won and i think i'll do the same.

What would you do if you won the lotto?

I would love to win the Lotto!

The first thing I would do is to invest it wisely. Then buy a house and two new vehicles. Of course give the family some money, mom, pops and sis dem. Then I would live off the interest I earn off the investments. I would keep my job until I have sorted out the investments and also just to laugh in the face of my HOD.

i would make a minor upgrade in my living situation, you know, spiff up the palace a bit, then just kinda sit around for a while doing whatever the hell it was i wanted to do. even if it was nothing.

after reading this post though, if i won enough, id give you money to buy your mother a house. i think she deserves it too. it just seems in order.

it would take me a while to get you the money though, because i would probably be pretty high most of the time.

I would give my money away. What the hell one person doing with so much money! NOT! hee heee

I tell you what! I would waste the money! I would spend it all on top class hookers and drugs, I'd party till mah _ick couldn't stand up and then I'd invest heavily in Viagra! It would be hedonism all the way! NOT!

I'd put it in the bank for awhile, I'd move to another country and buy 2 decent cars and a house, I'd get a job, so that the money doesn't run out on me and I'd go on living the same way I do now. Yeah, thats what I'd do... and every now and then, I would blow a little on the hedonistic lifestyle I mentioned above.

Gotta have a little bit of fun, ya dun know!

Just started reading you blog and enjoyed it! We're moving to Port of Spain from the states and will be in Trinidad for 3 years. Looking forward to it but wonder if you know of a pilates studio in the city? Any suggestions of where to look for apartments?

Oh,,,I was just about to say that Nancy wants to know where Pilates is held,but I see she has asked you in the post above (anonymous)

Now, if I won the lotto, I would give away money to my sister so she could buy a house. Then I guess I might buy something for myself, then I'd see if any of my relatives needed money and of course before that, i would put away money for retirement.

First off, I would not quit my job. I would invest about 1/2 of it. Buy my dream vehicles: BMW X5 and Subaru WRX Imprezza STi, start my own business, build my dream house, travel and donate to a few worthy causes. The Jamaican Lottery is now at J$60M (a little less that US$1M) and don't think all of the above is possible but that's what I would do.

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."
