    Can't do a lot with £800. I'd probably buy a good bottle of whisky, and squander the rest.

    pay the mortgage, which I can't pay because I am not working because... oh - we can't talk about that! It's big, it's huge, it's world-wide. But it does not exist in this make-believe world.

    I would likely put it towards my $5,500 tax bill...but then I’d have $$$ to get a tele...I’m seriously looking at the Ritchie Kotzen model, or a Baja...unless I can find something else with a thick neck and a modern fretboard radius...

    Pay down that credit card balance; the one that's not supposed to be there in the first place. Except that I have not been foregoing various purchases since these businesses still have bills to pay.

    I have a feeling the payment will never come. Everyone in South Louisiana got a check for $ 2,000, who went on line and applied for one after Katrina. I assisted maybe 20 country people who didn't know the Internet at the time. Theirs all came through. Mine fell through the cracks.

    I'm fighting with the City of New Orleans where they reappraised what may as well be a vacant lot, as a move-in beauty that could be sold for a Half Million+. And they've inspected the site and admitted their error, but now they're out of commission. If I pay the existing, obscene tax bill I will never see that money again. But if I don't, soon enough someone will be placing a bid on my property, to try to take it through Tax Forfeiture. New Orleans is more like Haiti than some of you know.

    I'd spend most of it on women and booze. The rest I'd just waste.

    I'd love to splurge on something musical, but I'll probably just be responsible. Man, what's happened to me?...

    I'd go to the bank and get it broken down into $1 bills and roll around in it.

    No, wait. I'd leave the bank lobby, go home and then roll around in it. (That's a better plan.)

    cup of coffee for $1? Easily averages around $3 in California.

    To the bank. We already paid for a vacation we probably won't be able to take until next year. Fortunately, none of my jobs have been effected; or at least my daily full time job has not been. My side jobs may just pay their invoices late, but no biggie; that is all gravy money.
