I got $356 back from the state and $830 back from the feds, which when added to the spare change already in my bank account means I have about $2800 to do with as I wish.
So, what should it be---
Something pointless and stupid that I will regret 15 minutes after purchase?
Help me out here.

I know an excellent charity. It's the Lsura Fund. Really. Just sign the checks over to me...I promise it will go to those it is destined for. ;)
Seriously? I'd spend some on books, some on bills and end up putzing around with the rest.

Small denominations, please.
Thank you, in advance.

Keep $1,000 in the bank as an Emergency Fund. Use the rest to pay off a bill.
Ok, maybe a lapdance or two also. ;)
I second the $1000 Emergency Fund as a minimum. If you can stand it, try to keep $1500 in there.
With the remaining money, try something like this:
1. If you have any debts, (especially credit cards), pay as much of them off as you can. Credit card interest can and will eat you alive.
2. After #1 has been fulfilled, take the remaining money and divide it in half. Put the first half into some kind of investment (mutual fund, IRA, whatever). Compound interest is your friend.
3. Spend the second half from #2 on something fun. DVDs, computer games, beer, lab dances, a few more hamsters for SDMB... whatever you know you'd enjoy.

I second the whores and crack idea.
Buy me a new computer. Or did you want to spend it all on yourself? ;)

If you really want a lap dance I'll help you out. I don't have big breasts but I do jiggle a lot.

Owens Corning. Buy Owens Corning (http://moneycentral.msn.com/scripts/webquote.dll?iPage=qd&Symbol=OWENQ). It's up 15% already today. Granted that 15% only represents a nickel, but . . . ya never know. It could skyrocket all the way up to nearly forty cents.
