POLL: What will you do with YOUR Economic Stimulus Check?

Just curious how everyone plans to spend (or not spend) their Economic Stimulus Check. Ours is slated to arrive on May 9th (YIPPEE!!) and that bad boy couldn't come at a better time.

A few months ago, we started following Dave Ramsey's baby steps (http://www.daveramsey.com/) and are well into our debt snowball (baby step #2). Part of the check will go to pay off the balance on our fence, which we financed last year. After that is paid, the only debt we have left to pay off is our minivan (and of course our mortgage). Our goal is to be debt-free, except for the house, in 24 months.

The balance of the stimulus check will pay for our summer vacaction, although we have no idea where we are going yet. Probably to visit family in either MA (mine) or FL (his) so not a true vacation, but travel nonetheless :)
