So you've just won the lottery, you've bought the dream house, the fancy car, the spiffy motorcycle, the luxury boat, paid off all debts both public and private.....

Now what are you going to buy me? :)

An all expenses paid tour of Europe for you and your special fellow.

A cybernetic implant that will allow you to wake up with text-transcriptions of your dreams.

That is very cool!

A large old military facility, complete with bomb shelters and other less explained catacombs to be mistress of.

And an endowment to allow you to staff and furnish the place.
Nov. 20th, 2007 06:42 pm (UTC)
OMG! That is the best idea!
Nov. 20th, 2007 06:46 pm (UTC)
It was the first thing that popped into my head, what can I say?

A shotgun. A really nice one. Lots of ammo too. *smiles sweetly at the apocalypse girl*

A cruise for as long as you want to anywhere.

Membership, lodging and transportation to the next five WorldCons.

I was going to say a really awesome old manor house (in good repair, of course) with some beautiful grounds, but I doubt the lottery would cover TWO such residences. ALAS. (Though if it did, clearly, you could have that.)

So it'll have to be . . . umm . . . a total library makeover, with more-than-adequate, attractive shelving for all books and bric-a-brac, glass-fronted shelves for the nicer books and artefacts, some beautiful, comfy furniture, carved wood trim and some wainscoting or whatever else you'd like to make the walls look fabulous, and a healthy sum to spend on cool books, cool odds and ends. Oh, and, of course, a couple of awesome outfits to wear while sprawled out in your lair. And a room big enough to put all this in, of course. Probably with a really badass old fireplace.

I mean, I would kill and maim to have such a thing. Does that make me a bad person?
Nov. 20th, 2007 07:25 pm (UTC)
No. You are not a bad person at all! I love this idea!

A defensible residence in or near Grants Pass. Fully stocked. Near fresh water. Plenty of sunlight for solar power.

Just a thought.

I would get you a hover board like the one in Back to the Future, along with a fully stocked high tech all wheel terrain hummer with tires that are resistance to going flat, and the whole car is resistance to every element you can throw at it, so you can get to Grants Pass.

The castle tour of Europe that you've always wanted to go on, for you and your hunny. With a chauffeured car, so you don't have to worry about driving on those crazy European roads, and four-star accomodations along the way. :)

Very nice!
Nov. 21st, 2007 05:57 am (UTC)
A place to LARP indoors warm and with all the comforts- like bathrooms.
Nov. 21st, 2007 09:54 am (UTC)
I'll pay black market rates for the bathrooms *now*.

Great pic of you, BTW.

Hm, I should clarify. To me what makes it great is the impact of the eyes, the uncompromising level look that gives great communication without words. A challenge and a sizing up all without a single word being uttered.

It's a great picture of you. I love it. The corset thing is just a very nice bonus.
Nov. 22nd, 2007 04:30 am (UTC)
Thank you again! :) this is one of the favorite picture I have that aaron took of me. that man is awesome with picture composition.

Slightly Used Missile Base
The Former Larson Air Force Base Complex 1A Titan ICBM Facility

Located in Central Washington between Moses Lake and Ritzville
Ten Minutes to Interstate 90, 1 1/2 hours West of Spokane

The Missile Base consists of 57 acres of real estate. The center secured portion of the property is protected by the original barbed-wire-topped chainlink fence. There is a paved road leading into the property with dual entry gates.

Above ground is the original 40x100 shop building, two concrete targeting structures, two manufactured homes, two 8x8x40 storage containers, and the silo tops of the three missile silos, two antenna silos, one entry portal and a few other misc structures.

Below ground is a huge complex consisting of 16 buildings and thousands of feet of connecting tunnels. The major underground structures are:
Three - 160' Tall Missile Silos
Three - 4 story Equipment Terminal Buildings
Three - Fuel Terminal Buildings
Two - 6 story Antenna Silos
One - Air Intake/Filtration Building
One - 100' diameter Control Dome Building
One - 125' diameter Power Dome Building
One - 6 story Entry Portal Building

Plenty of room for a small plane or three to land when it's time to depart sunny Seattle for more-defensible pastures. You don't mind visitors, right?

A squadron of trained anti-zombie mercenaries.

You could call them "Team Ablative Armor".
