What To Do With My Adsense Cheque?

On Saturday, I recieved my first ever google adsense cheque for the princely sum of £59.18 (curse the strong pound and the weak dollar!). I recently posted on my blog a very important question: what the bloody hell should I do with it? I feel I should do something something more constructive than spending it on blackjack and hookers. I feel I should invest it. So, with that in mind, I’m throwing the question open to you all, who are probably no better at financial advising than yours truly:

What should I do with £59.18 from Google Adsense?

Comment on it either here or there.

Finally, I’m also running a competition on my blog to create a website visualisation gallery. Basically, draw a picture either on a PC or freehand of a website, and email me with a copy of the image, and your site, the image, and the site will be included in the gallery. You have 24 hours! See the example above for

    I’m from Canada and I deposit all my Adsense cheques into a US$ savings account. That way I have access to US cash whenever I travel to the states – no use in losing out twice by exchanging it to CDN$ then back to US$!

    I’m lucky like that, Google converts it into £ from $. If you get paid in $ in the UK there’s handling fees, which are not good!

    Spend it on hookers and beer, and then waste the rest.

    That is money well spent
