BTT: Windfall

btt2Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

Oh, I am not one of them.  I owed on taxes this year despite the fact that I am in massive amounts of education debt.  If I did get that extra bit of money, though, I’d either save it because I’m ridiculously frugal or I would buy some books.  It would depend on my employment status.

I might also buy some DVDs.  I really wouldn’t protest if someone dropped Season 2 of LOST in my mailbox.  =)

Now, if I got a huge windfall, I’d go on holiday.  I’m really close to tons of places that I’d love to go.  There are many, many sites of interest in Scotland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and parts of eastern Europe that I’d visit, and I’ve always wanted to go to Russia.  I’d do the cheap student thing and go around in hostels, but since I’m going to be living here for a while and hopefully making money, Keith and I plan on proper vacations to all my places of interest.  It isn’t too expensive from this jumping-off point.  Just have to get through all the visas first.
