    A coke from the vending machine. I'm naturally pretty shy and all those reporters and lights in my mandatory press conference would have me sweating like crazy.

                      I think the first thing I would buy would be a brand spanking new car. Something that comes with "0 miles" on the odometer.

                      I don't yet know what make / model I would want, but I would want it NEW.Yes Nod

                      Then, my want list is

                      1. a house of my own
                      2. new clothes (probably tailor made)
                      3. new furniture and appliances (for new house)
                      4. a long vacation (location unknown for now)

                        Nice house surrounded by huge trees on a private lake.  A pontoon boat, fishing pole and a cooler full of ice cold beer.

                            I need a new vehicle badly, so I'd be acquiring a new truck the moment there were funds available. 

                            Buying a new property to build on would be in the works, but sometimes that process can take some time. There may be days of waiting and I would want a nice, air conditioned truck to drive around in while I wait for the upcoming move!

                              good health insurance. then a house in a small city. Im  simple .  Clothes , jewelry and expensive cars would be the last things on my mind no matter how much money i had.
