In which I pose a question:

I happened to think of this when pondering my most recent entry. Imagine, if you will:

You are given $20,000. Or the equivalent thereof, in your own little corner of the world. (So it'd be, what, 1 million, canadian?) But this comes with a string - you're to spend it on "fun" things, only. No paying off bills, no buying the house outright, no repairs you've been meaning to get to when you save up the cash, just recreation - and we'll go ahead and disallow cars since that would be more practical than fun, for that price. We'll also just assume that you've also had enough extra cash to pay off the taxes on the 20 grand.

So... what would you buy? Or otherwise spend it on?

I'm curious. I'm wondering, because I'm a bit stymied just what I'd buy for that.

Can I buy gifts for other people?

Hmmmm, since I can't spend it to go back to school full-time (that would be "practical", no?), I'd spend it on travel, gifts, good food, books, music, and possible clothes and jewelry.

Travel, new computer, bicycle or two.. well, that takes care of everything, really. Another option I'd seriously consider is new bicycle and then load it up with all my camping gear, and take off until the money runs out. I expect I should be able to make it to Asia before then.
