I’m brain dead I hardly ever do this, but I’m going to post this meme that I stole from Ree, who stole it from Jess. Before I do, though, I want to point out that I always thought meme came from the french for same. And that’s how I pronounce it. No me-me here, folks.

Things you’ve already done: bold
Things you want to do: italicize
Things you haven’t done and don’t want to – leave in plain font

1. Started your own blog. Several, actually. This is the only one I’ve sustained for more than a month or two.
2. Slept under the stars. In a big wind. Eejit. Young
3. Played in a band. That would require musical talent.
4. Visited Hawaii. I’m all about getting lei’d and pulling pork.
5. Watched a meteor shower. It’s an annual occasion. With wine. And my highschool BFF. At her house.
6. Given more than you can afford to charity. I also have residual back pain from it.
7. Been to Disneyland/World. Yes, I’m that person who has no desire to stand in long lines in the sun with cranky children. Bite me.
8. Climbed a mountain. Does Simpson’s Hill count?.
9. Held a praying mantis. Would it bite me?
10. Sang a solo. In grade one. The humiliation convinced me that the only place my singing sounded good was in my head.
11. Bunge jumped.
12. Visited Paris. For the food, not the rude.
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea. Wicked.
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch. More a craft.
15. Adopted a child. Fantasized about adopting mine out when he was fifteen. I’m feeling MUCH better now.
16. Had food poisoning. Wasn’t even nauseous during pregnancies.
17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Do I LOOK like I work out?
18. Grown your own vegetables. Would love to do it again.
19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France. Again, the food.
20. Slept on an overnight train.. From east coast to west coast of Canada. Highly overrated.
21. Had a pillow fight.. Isn’t that what pillows are for?
22. Hitch hiked.. Again. Eejit. Young.
23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill.. Yer lying if you said you haven’t.
24. Built a snow fort.. Yes. Snow was free. It was our toy.
25. Held a lamb.. And a goat kid. Regular kids too.
26. Gone skinny dipping..Oh, yeah. *fans face*
27. Run a Marathon. Are you even kidding me?
28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice..
29. Seen a total eclipse. I was in the mall when it happened. I hear it’s bad for the eyes.
30. Watched a sunrise or sunset.. More sunsets than sunrises.
31. Hit a home run.. Yes, yes, I have. Probably an accident.
32. Been on a cruise.. Oh, Lord. The food. The cruise wear. No.

38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person.
39. Gone rock climbing.. I was a mountain goat as a kid. Geddit? Kid?
40. Seen Michelangelo’s David. Statue of nekkid man? I hear the food’s good there.
41. Sung karaoke..Trust me, nobody wants to hear me sing.
42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt.. That was our nickname for my husband’s penis. Not that it was faithful to me, but that it could be counted on to erupt regularly.TMI? Okay, I made that up then.
43. Bought a stranger a meal in a restaurant..You have a problem with that?
44. Visited Africa..
45. Walked on a beach by moonlight.. Oh, yes. Memories.

47. Had your portrait painted. Been there, done that.
48. Gone deep sea fishing..

51. Gone scuba diving or snorkeling.. .
52. Kissed in the rain.. Good clean fun.
53. Played in the mud.. Good dirty fun.
54. Gone to a drive-in theater.. More good dirty fun.
55. Been in a movie.. Does a documentary count? If so, then I was totally in a movie.
56. Visited the Great Wall of China.. You may get the sense that I travelled so much as a kid I’m over it now. You might be right.
57. Started a business..
58. Taken a martial arts class. You’re kidding me, right?

85. Read the entire Bible.. Bet you didn’t know that, did you?
86. Visited the White House..
87. Killed and prepared an animal for eating.. We never named our chickens anything but dinner.
88. Had chickenpox.. And Mumps & Measles.
89. Saved someone’s life.. While fearing for my own. Not what you think.

Wow – looks like you could do a post on lots of those subjects. I was disappointed because the “fearing for my own” link is not working but I will come back and try again. Cuz NOW I HAVE to know, ya know? ;)

teeni Says:

Heehee – Yup it works fine now and now I remember why you feared for your life. Glad you and Torch remain friends through all of that. :)

Great! I was gonna do it and now I don’t feel like I should as it’s not only been done by Ree, but you also…
That’s what I get for not only procrastinating, but procrastinating being lazy and stealing meme’s.
I am happy to report that I only procrastinated stealing the meme and not the being lazy part…
