The Bucket List

Ok, it was an awesome movie, but I'd never heard the term until I saw the flick.  Makes sense, though:  A list of things to do before you die, aka Kick the Bucket, aka The Bucket List.

So...(yeah..I use the word a lot.  I also worship too often at the altar of the goddess... Ellipsis....[just google it])

....do you have a Bucket List??

Mine is fairly small.  I've seen and done a lot of things that many people haven't.  (Oy!  Minds out of the gutter, thank you!!)

Here's what I have so far....


  1. See Adam Ant, live, in concert.
  2. See the Northern Lights, live, in concert.  Or, just, ya know, live.
  3. Go gator hunting.

Actually, I'd like to do the gator hunting thing twice. Once, while I'm young enough to enjoy it.  The next time, as a finale:

"How did she die??"

"Gator hunting!! At the age of 97!!  Tough old bird, wasn't she??"





Beats the hell out of...

"How did she die??"

"Pooping her pants in a nursing home!"

Am I right, or am I right??



We should have been able to see the Aurora Borealis here in Ohio a few nights ago, thanks to a rather large solar flare, but if it happened, I missed it. I was hoping to see it without leaving home.  *shrugs*  Guess to see it I'll have to go north a bit, but what the heck?  You only live once, right?  And Eöl, Little Sis, and I are enjoying some free time and doing a bit of travel, so that's on the agenda.

As for Adam Ant **swoon**, His Royal Antness is doing another US Tour and guess who is going????  Ermagherd!! ** Pants**Swoons***  Yes!! Yours truly will be in an audience of The Dandy Highwayman Himself!! 

I can't wait!! I'm so excited!! But don't worry; even having the biggest Bucket List item checked off, I still have a LOT to live for: amazing friends (Waves to the J's!!), great family, and the best garden ever. :)

I wasnt going to comment because im confused by you and Jen. I've obviously missed something and will google. Gators on your bucket list? Id pick something a bit faster if i was looking for a fun way out. Im having lots of disturbing visions of pain, teeth, drowning etc.

LOL Lynda: Ellipsis is the word for those three dots...and referring to it as The Goddess Ellipsis is just my way of being facetious. ;)

Gators just sound like a cool way to go. I'm open to suggestions, though. ;)

Jen, I thought that looked familiar!
