To Do Lists

Today the loml and I just had to get out of the house. So we headed to where all bored middle class sub-urban types go. We went to the local Barnes and Noble. The loml indulged in some Starbucks while I wandered around the store looking at books.

The most interesting (and when I say this I mean weird) titles are usually in the 'Self-Improvement' section, though occasionally 'Craft/Hobbies' and the 'Management' section gives them a run for their money. So as I was browsing the shelves, I would see things like "Your life is waiting for you" or "How to become the One". Which reminded me of that new movie "The Bucket List" with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. Other than indicating that the baby boomer crowd likes movies, it makes one think that we all just sit around suffering through this life.

So I made a list too. My list is called "Things to do before I get too old and feeble to have a life worth living (and may as well be dead)". I liked this list because it was a lot easier to fill up than my previous list, "Goals".

So here is my list (slightly edited for publication):

  • Take a last minute vacation
  • Make a fantastic dress for myself
  • Have a great vegetarian foodie adventure
  • take a multi-day spiritual retreat
  • make my own alco-beverage
  • see a UFC fight live!

amazing. all these things are possible and rather selfish. but its just my first draft. We'll see how it goes.

------ small update -------
the extremely good-looking sysadmin of the server that my page resides on has informed me that I was violating site policy by posting ads. So I had to discontinue my experimental use of google ads. ah-well. May have to go digging through the couch for my change now.
