The Bucket List: A Semi-meme

My sister e-mailed this to me. I’m too busy writing and being creative at work, so this slack-a**ed blogger decided to turn it into a blogpost.

Here’s The Bucket List of things I have or have not done throughout my life. If I haven't done it, the line is in green.

    Gone on a blind date
    Skipped school
    Watched someone die
    Been to Canada
    Been to Mexico
    Been to Florida
    Spent the night on three or more continents
    Been on a plane
    Skydived
    Deep-sea dived
    Been lost
    Been on the opposite side of the country
    Gone to Washington, D.C.
    Swam in the ocean
    Wasted too much time on Facebook
    Cried yourself to sleep
    Gone parking post-college
    Played cops and robbers
    Bungee-jumped
    Recently colored with crayons
    Been overseas
    Ridden a motorcycle
    Driven a motorcycle
    Sang karaoke
    Paid for a meal with coins only
    Talked to your pets
    Done something you told yourself you wouldn't
    Fallen in love more than once
    Laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose
    Laughed until you peed your pants
    Run a marathon
    Caught a snowflake on your tongue
    Learned a second language
    Danced in the rain
    Been on television
    Been on the radio
    Been in the newspaper
    Been in a movie
    Written a letter to Santa Claus
    Been kissed under the mistletoe
    Walked with the back of my skirt tucked into my panties
    Spent a birthday alone
    Been married
    Watched the sunrise with someone
    Blown bubbles
    Seen the Grand Canyon
    Gone ice skating
    Been skinny dipping outdoors
    Gone to the movies by yourself
    Gone to a concert by yourself
Some of the greens are on my to-do list before my fiftieth birthday — just three months away! Can you think of others to add to the list? Or feeling like playing along on your blog?

Not even a home movie? Or an ahem, amateur film? We have to get you out more often!

I did the skydiving thing on my 40th. Put that at the top!

Yay for lists!

I'd play along, but it'd be almost a carbon copy of yours here (except I've seen the Grand Canyon).

Excellent! So what is the 2nd language? Scuba-diving, it's addictive and expensive!

This is great, I may have to steal, er, participate in this!

Great list! I might copy this on my blog and then add, surfed at sunrise.

Spent a birthday alone? YOU??? Which one? The whole 24 hours?
Some of these things are a little scary, important question--what do you get for completing the list? I need to know before I jump out of the plane

Kissed Michael Stipe?

I think you need to add a weekend eating, drinking and partying in New Orleans with RC and HC. I will drive and buy the first round of martini's.

Written a good blog?

Dated a rapscallion as handsome as Mathdude?

 
At 12/10/2008 01:15:00 PM, Blogger Mathdude said...

Be cool enough to take the Word Verificator of your blog?

 
At 12/10/2008 01:16:00 PM, Blogger Mathdude said...

Write more than 3 postings a month?

Oh, wait, you did that back in the day.

Download Mathdude's Track(s) of the Week and be blown away by its/their awesomeness?

Oh, wait, you did download the White Stripe's Jolene and Bang, Bang, You Shot Me Down.

Never worn a skirt... or panties for that matter... so I'm finding it hard to compete.

Your green list is impressively short. You have lived a lot in your less than 50 years!

Girl get your cute self out to see me in Phoenix. I am a 4 hour drive from the Grand Canyon...

Wunderbar, though neither Bunjee jumping nor marriage are worth the fright ;->

I've run a marathon. You're not missing anything. It's just like being really hungover. Have you done that? Then you're ok.

Smacked Mathdude in the mouth? That one should be on everyone's bucket list.

Jeeze, I have been away for a while. This is kind of like a day time soap opera. You can miss six months of posts and when you come back, Mathdude is still a douche.

We're in Miami right now and we went out to dinner with my stepdaughter, her boss, and another friend of theirs. They decided to run a marathon in January. That's the closest I've come to doing that one. Actually I haven't come close to about half the things on that list.
