And this is one of them.

So, if I won the lottery and got, I dunno, $5000 every month for the rest of my life, these are the things I would like:

1. An apartment I can feel more secure in, that doesn't have walls so thin I can hear everything else going on in other apartments.

2. A brand new computer, custom built. It would have four 2-terrabyte drives, a network-attached storage unit for backup, high-end graphics card and sound card with TV etc connections, as much damn RAM as I can get for it, two DVD-RW drives (the kind that can burn on both sides of a disk; one otherwise normal, and the other blu-ray), extra fans for keeping the inside cool, LOTS of USB ports, a brand-new USB printer, and a webcam. It would dual-boot Windows XP and Linux (because Vista sucks and I don't trust Windows 7. That, and I know XP). Also, two liquid-crystal monitors for twice the screen size, decent speakers, ergonomic keyboard and mouse (both wireless), and a recliner that's easy to move around (so I can switch to the recliner when I want to watch

3. One of those high-end fancy Wacom graphics tablets, the one that doubles as a monitor, so it's like drawing right on the screen.

4. Decent high-end digital camcorder that records in multiple formats, and good video-editing program(s).

5. 32 gig or better MP3 player.

6. Brand new Apple laptop, compatible with my graphics tablet(s). (I would probably take the tablet I have now out with me, take a portable printer of some sort, and draw people's portraits for a small fee. I wouldn't need the money, of course, but it would be fun. Or maybe I could do it for free. *Ponders* Nah, people might get suspicious if I did it for free.)

7. An iPad.

8. High end digital still camera.

9. A Blackberry or similar, with monthly charges and all.

10. A new driver's license (currently just have a non-driver ID) and one of those neat little electric cars I see around town sometimes.

11. A hand-held GPS unit. (And another for Lilla.)

12. A fucking dishwasher. And an extra freezer.

13. A bunch of clothes that are currently too expensive for me. Mostly Goth and Gothic Lolita stuff. But also some ren-faire type stuff as well.

Actually, she's *got* a 2 terabyte drive now. And it's approaching half full.

Mostly video files (various movies and TV programs)

I also have my music folder and all my music on the 2TB drive. That, and I hoard images from the Internet.

I pretty much had to put my music on the 2TB drive. Even with the music folder and all the other files of mine moved from the main HD to the 2TB drive, the poor computer's hard drive is still pretty full. Before moving stuff onto the 2TB drive, the PC's HD had maybe half a gig at most of free space.

PS
I also intend on freeing some space on the 2 TB drive by burning copies of things to disk. But at the same time, I'm reluctant to get rid of stuff from the 2TB drive because disks tend to get lost, with me. I used to siphon my hoarded images onto disks like that, and gods only know how much stuff I lost by misplacing the disks.

Maybe I wouldn't go for THAT much disk space, I guess.

Oh, and the iPad looks like it has uses. I don't know how pressure sensitive it is, but I'd like to find out if one could draw on it with a stylus.

Perhaps. But they're easy to find. The other things take a lot more effort.

But if it came down to it, I probably would end up getting a look-alike from another brand. After all, I started looking for an iPod and ended up with my 16GB Coby MP4 player (which looks a little like an iPod, so I call it my liePod), which I love.
