    Yes, oompa to my loompa in a loose sense

    -Minus the annoying song and dance

    I'd also probably buy one or several of these fine homes


    Heart Castle at San Simeon ("In Xanadu did Kubla Khan: A stately pleasure-dome decree")

    Phil Spector's "Pyrnees Castle" (screams Klass with a "K")

    [​IMG]


    Richard Branson's Necker Island (this is actually pretty awesome)

    Penthouse condo at the new 432 Park Ave tower

    I had more of an eye for Uma Thurman as poison Ivy...

    I'm fairly practical with money so I'd pay off my debts first. Clothing & accessories would be an after thought - I'd be far more interested in buying property. Perhaps a thousand acres of land in the country, with a ranch and some horses. Then I'd buy a nice secluded lake home. I doubt I'd waste money on fancy sports cars. I'd have a very large gun collection, stuff like nice hunting rifles, trap guns, etc. I'd then splurge on many pairs of dress shoes by EG, Lobb, G&G, Vass & St Crispin.

    Uma is 5'9", Alicia is 5'4"... we can agree to disagree but the height makes the difference for me.

    Heh, that's awesome. I'd imagine they'd be pretty big in a technology hub like Menlo Park.

    Also, that story about the car stalling from February has been debunked. The NYT reviewer put that car through ridiculous abuse.

    The car has since gone on to win the highest ever accolades from Motor Trend and Consumer Reports

    I'd buy a complete new wardrobe.

    ...the old one is rather rickety, door is hanging off the hinges, the mirror is cracked, and it might have woodworm.

    I'd probably spend the bulk of my money supporting and building schools and hospitals.

    In terms of Classic Menswear, I'd get clothes from Chris Despos and shoes from Perry Ercolino.
