Too True Tues #7

It is time again for TTT! Woo Hoo!

This week I have to be short and quick and truth be told, I am going to slack a little bit. I have a lot of stuff to do for our trip starting tomorrow. I refuse to call it a vacation. I won't write what I think of in my head. Anyway, this weeks topic is..... What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

My answer is a Corvette. Automatic transmission only. Midnight blue.

Note that there is only space for 2 people in a Corvette and no car seats. And my handbag will take up that second seat.

Speaking of my handbag, how the hell am I supposed to take only 3 one ounce bottles of liquid or gel type stuff on the airplane? I take more than 3 one ounce bottles of liquids, lotions and gels to the damn grocery store! You know what else is stupid? If the airport security people find you with an extra bottle of liquid not in a quart size bag or over the ounce size, they huck it away in a bin. Okay.... if it is such a dangerous potential toxin or flammable or explosive, how are you just going to pitch it into the nearest trash can? I mean, shouldn't you call in the bomb squad or something? Get that cool robot dude to come in and take apart my little bottle of moisturizing Peachy Keen hand cream?
If you are going to call it a hazard, treat it like a hazard. Otherwise you just look stupid. (I can imagine the search hits I will get on that! Hi TSA!)

Anyway, I don't know yet if I am taking my computer to NM with me. I will try since I will desperately need all the friends who live in it.

Back to TTT #7
First thing you would spend your lottery money on! Tell the truth! Spare us the crap about buying your kids a Carousel or paying off your parents mortgage. The REAL truth!

By the way, I am also taking suggestions for future TTT's.


  1. You're allowed to take more than 3 one ounce bottles. You're allowed one bag, that bag can be filled with whatever number of liquid/gel containers that will fit, as long as they are under three ounces. The catchy way they describe this is "3-1-1." 3 ounce bottles that fit in 1 bag, 1 bag per person. So actually, each of your kids gets a bag too. And your husband. My boyfriend never uses his bag, so I always make him take one for me.

    I travel way too much...most of it for business.

  2. I call my front passenger seat my purse's seat. My purse gets very upset when it has to sit in between the seats and not on it's seat.

  3. Ugh...I had forgotten about the TSA rules on liquid and gel...I have to fly in about a week. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. I would buy a Mrs. Bridges and Mr. Hudson, and perhaps Jeeves, too, if the payout was big enough.

    And if you didn't watch Upstairs, Downstairs I am simply sorry for you.

  5. BTW - So sorry I go my own way with the TTT - wrong weeks, wrong topics.

    I usually follow rules, It is some sort of TT thing that I can't seem to in this case - you got something started and I can't make it stop!

  6. I would get a personal chef...the kids, of course, would still have to cook for themselves because of teaching life skills, blah, blah, blah, and my personal chef would have crazy curly hair, nice arm muscles, a wicked sense of humor and think I was HILARIOUS, mmmm, I like this TTT.

  7. Finally.....it's posted.
    Now I've thought of a million other must haves.

  8. i couldn't help myself be a tad bit conservative. :)

  9. I'd get out of the house ASAP and book myself into a fancy-schmancy hotel while I figure out how to spend mah riches!

    (linked to you on my blog)

    As for future TTT how about: if you go could back to high school and anything you want about your experience there, what would you change and why?

  10. Mine's boring, but I would build a house!!!

    Then I would probably hire a maid, a personal trainer, and a personal chef!


I love comments! If you agree or disagree, comment away! However if you are a butthead about it, you may be excised.
