$19 Million Dollars.
That's how much money I am going to have tomorrow night.
But I spose I wouldn't care if 18 others shared it with me.
What would anyone do with $19M?
Buy an island?
a Lamorghini...or 2?
a few houses?
a few companies?
Hmmm...all i want is to get out of debt, own a nice sized house, and 2 cars that won't break down.
Then I'd happily share money with friends and family, set up nice nesteggs for the kids, invest enough to keep me going when i retire at age 35.
Actually, I'd go and find a job that I enjoy doing. Something that I can go to everyday and feel excited about.
My dream job is to be a radio DJ, but it seems the only way you can become one of those is to do a course, get a job in some backwater town for a few years before scrounging for a mid-dawn shift at a city station for another few years and then get some 4 hour shift to spin the discs.
Years ago I did some 'work' at KIX106, back when Bad Boyd was on the airwaves every night and they played real music. Not the twaddle that they blurt out nowadays. It was some of the best times of my life, hanging out there. He taught me how to use the desk, the mics, the tapes, find cd's, organise news and advertisements.
...And then Kix went lame (before turning to MIX106), Boyd left and I had no more fun out there.
Now I think 104.7 and MIX are owned by the same people. How lame is that.
So, the only radio station I listen to now is JJJ. It saves me from the shit on commercial radio. It also lets me hear quality Australian music that isn't DeltaGuyBarnesyFarnesyNikkiDani shit...
So yeah...anyway...bring on the 19 Mill.
