    Invest half in a roth ira, about $2,000 in my business, and then fix my car :p

    A case of beer, download my Partypoker client and start losing them all again.

    But listen to Julian, he's smarter than me.

    Say Thank you pay a few bills. Then hide the rest.

    I'm ashamed to say I'd spend it all within the next few days. If it was a larger sum (say 10K), I'd probably save half of it.

    Pay off the last few car payments I still have and a few other bills. Then I would go camping.

    I would buy one thing I really liked (probably a piece of jewelry)...then I would pay bills with the rest.

    Whenever I come into money, I always purchase one thing.  This way, years later - when thinking back, I can always remember - this is what I purchased when I got this money.

    Treat yourself well - that's my motto!

    Gee, I long for the day that someone will hand me $5,000. I would start the process to have some of my patent ideas placed on the market.

    Spend it as if it was on fire. Save about 1K  - the rest would just evaporate in buying a used car, (have none), clothes, (have 3 days worth), and fancy food.

    With all that eating - going to need some bigger clothes.
