That brings the current total to:
Actually, come to think of it: perhaps it should be for one person, April, since you are the one who's buying it.
I don't know. But it's possible.
How much can I spend? I found a trip from Valparaiso to Sydney, that runs annually, for $58,175 per person, in the Crystal Penthouse with Verandah. Is that blowing my budget? There are obviously other rooms I can stay in for less, so lemme know.
Edit- For one person then? Each of us has to spend 500K though, right? It must be lot of people vacationing then? Damn, where is that EPIC?!
There's a sofa on Ebay for $12,000.
OK -- one sofa, going, going, sold to the odd-looking battle droid in the front row.
That means the current total is $ 12,052,960 - $3599, and + $ 12,000 =

a couple luxury items for our family home...
Marble Sink: $3,000
Marble Toilet: $2,500
brings my total to: $2,510,000
If we need to bump up the total, I know of an island on the market for $3,200,000 or a Boeing Jet for $5,900,000 [link=http://www.yachtmarketplace.com/]here[/link].
I'm also adding the following to my boating purchase:
TracVision C3 Satellite TV System: $2999.99
Sideband Radio: $1899.99
Weather Instruments: $4494.95
So that brings my accessories total to: $20,384.88
I can come up with the woman's wardrobe if you guys want.
I've found our plane if anyone wants to buy it!
It's a bargain at only $4,295,000.
Like I posted earlier, I found an expensive holiday, but I wanna hear from epic how many people it must include.
I just configured a Dell Poweredge 6600 for $64,431. It contains:
Quad Processor IntelÂ® Xeon, 1.6GHz/1MB Cache
16GB DDR MIRRORING (16X1GB) RAM
8 x 73GB SCSI Hard Drives.
If you need more specs, just say so.
here's a $4999.00 TV
and the rest of the entertainment system $2999.00...
all BOSE, found [link=http://pix.crutchfield.com/products/2001/018/l018LS35B-F_MT.jpeg]here[/link]
Concerning the holiday: You can make it for however many people you want, but the max you can spend on it is 3 million all up.
Also include in the grand total:
A guitar, drum set, bass, and 2 amplifiers -- one by Marshall and one by Peavey.
A business of some kind. (3 million max)
11 tickets to a Broadway Show
I'm going to kill someone. THe boards are all messed up and I just lost my entire post!
I had almost all of the musical equiptment.
I'll do it again shortly, after I cool off.
I'm working on those tickets. The board was down for me for hours!
Alright, 11 tickets to [link=http://www.prestigeentertainment.com/default.asp?LNK=2542]Urinetown[/link] at $338 a pop, that's $3718. That's actually pretty expensive for a Broadway show.
Do we get creativity points for choosing a show about pee? Here's a description of it:
"A terrible water shortage has crippled the Gotham-like town that serves as the setting for Urinetown. In a mad attempt to regulate water consumption, the government has outlawed the use of private toilets. The citizenry must use public, pay-for-use amenities owned and operated by the corrupt and iron-fisted Caldwell B. Cladwell. The privilege to pee is expensive, draining and dangerous. Anyone who refuses to pay to pee is immediately and without question hauled off to Urinetown. What is Urinetown? Nobody knows, for those who are sent there are never heard from again. But it's really a love story and there's a revolution all before the end of Act I. Will the revolution succeed? Can true love be found in Urinetown? All these questions and more are answered in Urinetown."
Edit: Damn the link won't take you directly to the prices. You have to choose Urinetown from off the list and then pick a day to buy tickets and then it'll show you the price. But it's $338, I swear!
I've found a business to buy:

Wow... I've got to go to work soon, but I'll tackle whatever still needs to be done when I get home.
You guys are amazing.
So, on the three things(things being sets of things) that I'm buying I've spent...
That's for the business, the cars, and the music equiptment.
I think that I'm done. Unless we need to rework a few things to get the total right. Which we most likely will.
my grand total:
summer home in virgin islands - $2,500,000
life size darth vader - $4,500
marble sink - $3,000
marble toilet - $2,500
entertainment system - $7,998
GRAND TOTAL - $2,517,998
so today if we can take care of whatever is left on the list then everybody can add up their grand total and we can figure out what the gap is and find something or somethings that cost that much. shouldn't be too hard.
