You’ve just one a million dollars, tax free!
1. Who do you call first?
kitanzi, of course!
2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?
If it actually happened *today*? Two first class tickets to London for the filkcon next week.
Aside from that, I’d pay off all the bills and credit cards and so forth, and then probably look at buying a house.
3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?
Depends on what she wants.
4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?
Eventually. See #5.
5. Do you invest any?
After everything’s paid for, including the house, whatever’s left goes into low-risk investments, with the intent of using the interest to supplement income. (Just $1 million isn’t enough to quit my job, so I’ll just use it to be even more comfortable, and be able to help my friends who need help when they do.
