Pay off my debts and my parents' debts and start a charitable foundation with the rest.

pay off my mortgage.. probably my parents' mortgage also. After that, I'm cruising the Greek Islands, and stopping off on my way home to collect all the bloglits that I can. Whether they want to come with me or not. *gets out handcuffs*

Fix-up my house, make sure everyone in my family gets some, buy stuff, save some. I'd like to give some to a good cause, but I'd have to do some research first. It would probably be to a "green" cause.

I get $10 million? And the world isn't about to end in 36 hours? Or I don't have to give up a testicle? Cool.

Well, my mom could retire right away. I'd set her up with a little trust fund.

Probably pay off a few family mortgages. Buy me a luxury two bedroom something in the city.

I'd keep my job. But I'd take the month of October off for a nice long vacation with a few friends.

And 10 percent to something charitable.

Pay off debt!

Buy an even biggerer house! In Connecticut!

Buy a house for the ex, too! So I can have free babysitting!

Enroll the munchkin in an uppity private school!

Make TKB sign a pre-nup!

...Hmmm...

I think I would turn greedy and lazy, and my life would be ruined. I would like money I earned instead, plzkthnx. :)

Buy a house on the beach.

Buy a more fuel efficient automobile.

Donate some to charity.

Invest the rest.

Give some to my siblings in trust for my nieces and nephews and some to my parents so they could take a trip if they wanted.

Give some more to favorite charities - autism research, for one.

Probably buy an apartment in a high rise near the beach in Florida for winters.

Finally take that long-desired trip to Australia & New Zealand (hi, Kaf!).

Quit my job and have my wife quit hers.

So we could stay home and play with our son all day...

I'd set aside $50000 for use in future major purchases (house, cars, vacations, etc)

The rest I would use to found scholarships of various types, and charities get some too.

Retire from the nine to five.
My wife would want to move to a larger peice of property. Really just to put the neighbors further away. Then if the dogs or my friendds got to loud it would only be her complaining. It would also have to be a house that could use some work. I like dyi. I would spend my time gardening, brewing beer, playing with my dogs and travelling to see my friends.
Family and friends would be my charity.

Quit my job, giving a classy 2-weeks notice of course.
Totally renovate my lovely, historical, termite-ridden house.
Live off the rest, with a focus on distance running and fishing...
