Wasn't enough to go crazy, but it is enough where just about all all earned income is fun money. I am not buying mansions and yachts, but I don't think I will ever need to cook another meal at home again.

I second that.

But then again, a new bike is a lot cheaper than going out to eat for the rest of your life....
