Just kidding.  I'm just happy I haven't lost all of my hair.  Actually, I like dark hair.  I don't think it would look good on me however.  Once I wanted to darken my hair and I bought a shampoo-in rinse at the drugstore.  When I was finished, my hair was orange and I had a sales meeting in the morning.  I'll never forget it.  I ran out and got another bottle to lighten it, but I ended up with light red hair.  I walked into the office and a guy from Chicago looked at me and said "Nancy, I always thought you were blonde!"

I know you were kidding....So was I.....

 

"Nancy, I always thought you were blonde!"

All right...I'll be nice....LOL

    "If I had mucho money, I would just concentrate on having only the upper crust of everything, not just women mind you, but the best of everything..."

    "...Once I have huge amounts of money, everything else falls into place. You can help your family, friends, charity, own harems, even save the whales If you want to. But In my mind cash is king. That comes first."

    Good grief!  In a few years we will hear how you went broke, like so many Lotto winners before you!

        having lots and lots of money will not fix everything... and yes you gain a few friends if you had it,, maybe save a few whales.... but what about today,,, to many people out there waiting on tomorrow forget to do for today....

        money wont buy you happiness, but can give you the opportunity to be happy, Maybe...,, Attitude...

          Wouldn't bother me a bit. In fact I'd have a harem around me at all times.

          Look at Hugh Hefner, he pays his bunnies a thousand bucks a week allowance, plus fringe benefits. Do you think they like him because he's a nice guy?

          Life's too short to worry about all that lovie dovie stuff. With an almost 65 percent divorce rate, you can have it.

          I don't have fun with women because of their intellect or whatever else people define as virtues. If I want intellect I'll go to the library. If I want some lovin', I'll ring the bell, and be swamped with about ten 23 year old brunettes...LOL

          LOL PAC I like the way you think!

          Brunettes! AHH YES! with brown eyes too.....and not the typical brown eyes but the those rare light brown ones...the kind you could never get tired of gazing into every night!

          I think being extremely rich would be awsome, but after the intital shock was over and you became accustomed to all the buying-up of everything you ever wanted , you would be left with a growing sense of lonesomeness that no amount of expensive toys or harem of party-girls could cure...but thats just me.

            I agree...having a loving home is more important than any amount of money.  Just turn on the news. The rich have so much misery.  (although I'd still rather be rich & miserable than poor & miserable!)

              Yes, Thoth.  So true.  So after you've got everything you need (or want) then make sure you give back...maybe buy some land and build your own animal rescue, adopt a few older children who can't find homes, start a food bank.  Last night I was watching the NAACP Image Awards and Bono was given a special award for his work in Africa to stop AIDS and wipe out poverty.  I doubt if he's dedicated all that time and work for the glory. But what a wonderful feeling it must be to achieve so much and leave the world a better place.  I'm not saying a person has to be wealthy to make a difference, not at all.  But money is powerful and does a lot more than buy toys.

                True, but that's the kinda problems I want.

                Not to mention that If I do feel empty inside, I can always afford the best psychiatrists in the world...LOL

                People talk about how many rich people are miserable, but that's them. You can't just lump evryone into one big pot. Some people don't like drinking tea, and some people like me, love it. Some people don't like brussell sprouts, but I love them drenched in cheese.

                Like justxploring said, and what I've been saying for the longest time, If I'm gonna be be unhappy anyway, I'd rather be rich and unhappy, than poor and unhappy.

                  I forgot to mention that since I've been actively playing the guitar for more than 20 years, one dream of mine would be to have a million dollar studio with top of the line equpment, so I can record my own music. Maybe even hire some tutors to teach me some advanced theoretical guitar techniques, and so on. I would never be bored.

                  I'd hire Joe Satriani or Steve Vai. Genius guitar players. Also Al Dimeola, fast as lightning, sort of like a cross between fast rock leads/spanish fusion. Maybe a little fast smooth jazz fused in there somewhere.

                    'Rich' means different things to different people.

                    To me, I compare my menial lifestyle to the homeless in the US, or to the thousands of squatters living in tin shacks in the slums of Brazil, or the thousands of people starving to death in remote areas of Africa, and I realize just exactly how 'rich' I am. 

                    I also find it ironic we are spending billions on a war, and we have OUR President touring the tornado-ravaged areas of Alabama asking americans to donate....   I guess I just see something wrong with that picture, I've never heard a president ask people to donate while at the same time touring an area..... it just struck me as odd.

                      We all what to win the lottery and become rich. But what does it feel like to be rich. I live a middle class existance thanks to my parents. But there is this girl I like I feel ran off with another guy because he got his own house. It doesn't bother me. I was wondering if you won the lottery you wouldn't know if people like you for you. I feel selfish that way. Would that bother you guys. If you are rich, you would get the girls but would you want the girl that would like you if you were not rich.

                      Many rich guys get betrayed by their women too! Check out the movie, "Casino", starring Robert DeNiro. (based on a true story) Smile

                      Of course, most men would want a woman who would stick with them, whether they had money or not, but like all things men value, good women are rare.

                        i agree good women are rare and we see many celebrities who have wives that cheat on them so money doesnt always mean an honest faithful woman who will stay with you through bad times and good times. if you get a good man or woman hold on tight. i have lotto fever!!!

                            good women are rare  (really???)

                             

                            Sad, sad statement about the world we live in, if that's really true.  I'm a good woman and I'm not rare at all.  In fact, I'm pretty well done!  I could say the same thing about men.  Speaking of wealthy celebrities, why do we always see men with women often 30-40 years younger?  Everyone blames the women (like Anna Nicole) for being gold diggers, but in her case, Mr. Marshall was 89 years old and couldn't have been an imbecile if he was a self-made billionaire.  He knew exactly what he wanted..a young, sexy voluptuous woman!  On another thread someone defended senior citizens, saying how they have so much wisdom and should be treated with equal dignity & respect.  But when it comes to this time of situation we hear "The poor guy. He's so old. He doesn't know any better. She's taking advantage of him."  Baloney.

                              I think that wisdom had nothing to do with wanting a voluptuous woman. Actually I don't think he cared who got his money. He had one foot in the grave and wanted to go out with a bang....LOL

                              You actually believe she really loved the guy? Well, I guess I would too if someone put me in an apartment for 6 months until my career took off. Give me spending money along the way.

                              So many people say that she was already famous and had money before she met him, but If you saw that biography shortly after her death, they outline a chronological trail which clearly showed that she met him when she was hired at a strip club. She wasn't doing well there, so she spent money on a boob job to get more attention.

                              I'm sorry, but I don't buy it....

                              If that were the case, you'd see many examples of really hot babes walking around with 83 year old men.

                              I don't think I've seen many in my lifetime. Come to think of it, I haven't seen any at all. OH! wait a minute....I've seen fat old, balding men with some really hot gals....

                              That can only mean one thing.....LOL
