It's been a long time since I've done the Friday Five...but this is a good one! So here you go:
You have just won one million dollars:
1. Who do you call first?
2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?
3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?
4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?
5. Do you invest any? If so, how?

Can you believe it's been 5 days since I last blogged?! I think I'm losing my touch!
Anyway, I think when I last blogged, we were about to go to the Claremont Resort.....and it was, of course, fabulous! It was a much needed little get~a~way. If you're ever in the San Francisco bay area, you really should consider staying there, or at least eating there. (To find the best price on a room, go to expedia.com....then call the hotel and see what their prices are......the hotel will match the lowest price you find on the internet.)
In other news, Sunday I drove back to L.A.....but only after smashing my finger in the tailgate of my car....then finding out I was low on oil and water (I mean coolant!...this car doesn't drink water!).....then finding out I have a snooty car that only takes certain types of high end fluids (sort of like me, I guess!)....then having a major freak out when it started beeping at me when I was in the middle of no where!
I guess I should explain.
So being the "car guy" woman that I am, you'd think that I would check my fluids (the car's!) regularly, right?! Well, it's a brand new car.....how much oil and water could it burn?! But they told me to check it often, and finally I remembered.....20 minutes before I was about to leave on a 400 mile drive....on a Sunday!
Of course, everything was low.
Now, on a normal car, you'd just throw in some water, buy a can of oil and be on your way. But this is a BMW. You can't just put water and oil in a BMW.....it has to be special oil and coolant! So I go to the auto parts store, figuring someone there will be able to help me. But no! I get some guy who can't even spell BMW ! Oy. And of course, it's Sunday so all of the service departments are closed. So I make my best guess on the coolant and decide the oil can wait till I get to L.A (it's only down a quart). And I leave.
Well, I get about 300 miles down the road, and it's now the middle of the night....and I'm at the top of a mountain pass....the car starts beeping and things start flashing. Oh great!
Of course, I'm figuring it's the stupid coolant that I put in, and now we're all gonna die!!
Ok, no not really. But it did freak me out...a little.
Anyway, as it turns out, it was just my car alerting me that it was near freezing outside, and that I should be careful and watch for ice. Wow. Do I have a freaky, snooty, high tech, bionic car, or what! Gotta love that!
So now I'm home safe.....sorry for rambling on so much, but that's what you get when I haven't posted in 5 days! Hope all is well with you guys.....see ya later everybody!
