You can do either a lot with a million dollars, or not very much. Overall in the grand scheme of things being a "millionaire" doesn't mean much any more, with the way costs of living are today, especially in a big city.
edit: being class clown rocks. I was the class clown from elementary all the way to end of high school. Always the first to bust out some totally inappropriate, tangential random thought in class just for the fuck of it, or get some funny discussion goin on that ended up disruptive the louder and bigger it got. Earned me many moments standing out in the hallway waiting for a lecture on how to conduct oneself properly in a classroom setting. Life's too short to behave.
