Friday Five Millionaire

This weeks Friday Five has to do with all the game shows that have taken over the airways since the writers strike has taken away real tv. You remember that, Grey's Anatomy, House, Bones etc.
Well, our task is to choose the five things that we would do if a million dollars suddenly showed up in our bank account.

1. I'd call the bank to report the mistake-just kidding- Ok I really did win it on "1 VS 100" my personal favorite of this lot.

2. I'd buy a place to live for my me and my partner that's bigger than 500 sq. ft.this used to be called a studio apartment but is now called a "junior one"apartment inflation! Actually that should about cover the down payment in NYC, and we'd be left with a large mortgage. (A junior one in my building is selling for just under $600,000. and I want 2 bedrooms, is this too much to ask?)

3. OK,  I'm giving myself a downstate living allowance (something the state actually gives me.) Let's make it $2,000,000. I'd also quit my  job and go into private practice as a therapist.

4. I'd be much more generous to the non-profits and charities that I now support on a much more modest level.

5. Of course I'd put some in my retirement fund, which is still too slim.

The Entry That's Not Here

Sunday, BL, my godchild and our niece went to the Easter Parade a long standing, wonderful custom in NYC. It's unlike any other  NY Street Event as it's held on 5th Ave. in the 40's and 50's (right in front of St. Patricks Cathedral.) but there are no vendors, nothing commercial at all. Just ordinary NYers in home made hats, wonderful creations made and worn by men and women. I've just been too tired to download, then upload the pictures.  After my long hiatus, work really takes up too much of my time and energy. Maybe tomorrow I'll have time to do it. Today after work I'm having coffee with Barb from Views from the Road
