When I was visiting my parents, I would walk 500m to the grocery store everyday to pick up stuff (like I'm used to in NYC), and by the third day the cashiers started asking me questions as if I was homeless or something (I suppose those on break saw me walking).

yes, ngh, i can commiserate, my legs tire out and i have to sit. i'm still mentally arranging the one room i have here. and i have no real view to speak of, so much for my morning light. the bulk of my boxes and luggage was the sewing kit, which has been stashed in the closet for now. my joy will be to unpack and re-sort all the fabrics and notions. are you still in fla, ngh?

My kitchen should be done by tonight. I have a view of a wooded area w/ vines, ferns, and flowers and large trees in my front yard, and only a 10 minute walk to the downtown.

I have to retetris my boxes so I can find room to put together my shelves so I can put my recs and hi-fi somewhere. Still using my smaller speakers right now.

If I won $43 million? First, like 40% of that has to go to some charity or something or else people will this you’re a jerk. I think I would donate chunks of that across cool places.

Then I would like to own land and a home somewhere cool and away from NYC bullshit. Like a nice goat farm or something. That’s about it.

If you are charitable from the get go you get less scummy folks coming at you from out of the woodwork. And you help people.

lottery money speculation is much more fun. One thing I've been thinking about for a long time is alterna-assisted living places/housing for my generation (young boomers). If I had money I'd establish some that weren't glum. Or expensive. Pets welcome and encouraged. Probably have to be shared pets.

It was decent. I had avoided going there by name alone, but we had to grab something before hitting the airport and we were right there. Everything we read said it was actually a good place to eat, so we did. It was your typical Thai food. Good but not amazing

if one were to put together a "retirement" housing set-up, i like the idea of a common square with satellite housing/apartments of all types. that place outside of DC to the north(?) is an idea i like. it started with retirement homes and spread to apartments and then adult-care facilities. it's an ok idea, but i like to think it should contain all generations, not just the 0ver-55 crowd.

this apartment bldg i'm in is for the over 64 crowd, yet there are people of all ages wandering about. and beng in the heart of the city isn't so shabby either. ...

my winnings would go to support radio stations i love. and i'd buy my kid and his girl a new car and new movie-making equipment. and i'd find tons of my favorite non-profits to help out. no strings on any of those donations at all, either. and if my son wants me to buy the house back from the bank, i'd do that.... oh the places i'd go!! i'd go to iceland by boat, the small steamer boats, not the big liners.
