    This.
    Go out for a meal/to the pub to celebrate with Robin, don't think I'd want a lot of people to know tbh.
    Pay off my student debt and overdraft.
    New monitor and speakers for the computer.
    More piercings.
    See what I can get done to make my hair healthier faster.
    Get married (once I lost the weight) and pay for my uncle to get flown over from Rio for it.
    Buy a house and decorate/furnish it.
    Probably travel to countries we'd like to see, I know Robin loves travelling.
    Go to Bloodstock and Wacken/Metalcamp/lots of foreign metal festivals.
    Get cats.
    Do courses on various random things I'd like to do for fun like cake decorating, jewellery making, glass blowing.
    Probably buy a lot of WoW Trading Card Game loot cards that give exclusive mounts or special effects :p.
    Put what's left in a good savings account (I'm assuming I won like triple rollover here :p).

    Id quit my job. While I would still want to work even if I was a multimillionaire, it wouldn't be in the place I am at the moment!
    Buy a house for myself, one for my parents, and put enough aside for each of my brothers to buy when they decide where they want to live. Not mansions, just somewhere for everyone to call home.
    Buy a car, something smallish... VW Polo or something like that.

    Then I'd panic, go on holiday for a few months, get bored, come home (to my shiny new house), get a new job and eventually get rid of the rest to charity.
    My life of piracy was so profitable that I can retire and spend my days eating fruit.

    Buy somewhere nice, beautiful and, more importantly quiet, to live in. Kit it out with an amazing TV, comfy beds,a top of the range kitchen... Give a ton of money to friends and family. Then I'd probably blow the rest on holidays and fancy dinners.

    I would get myself a lovely house with a library and a games room. I would then go back to uni and do a few degrees and then do my PhD in my favourite. Which I think would be maths, but I'd want to have physics, psychology and English degrees to make sure first. I'd make sure all my friends/family had enough to get by on and I'd have a few nannies so I could *maybe* have a break every once in a while....

    And I would have a lot of computers and general geeky goodness.

    I would set up my own business doing pretty much the same job I am doing now. That way I'd still have a job to keep me busy and I'd still be doing something that I enjoyed but it would be on my own time and it wouldn't be a huge disaster if it all went wrong.

    I'd help out my parents and my little brother - pay off their mortgage, his student loan etc.

    Rather than buy one huge house, I would buy several smaller properties and rent them out.

    I'd go on lots of holidays.

    I'd give a substantial percentage to several of my favourite charities.

    I'd support my boyfriend financially so that he could go back to uni and re-train in something that he really loves.

    I don't think I would really want to be super rich but it would be really nice to be able to do things without having to really consider the cost.

    1. Cars for my two brothers and I
    2. A house for me, though I am not sure where
    3. Totally pay off all of my student loans
    4. Start a fund for my friends son, she is young and struggling to keep a roof over their heads plus I think I would do just about anything for that girl
    5. Travel! Any and everywhere.

    Anything left goes into a Swiss bank account...
