I know we already had a thread like this, but I reckoned

1) it's ancient, and
2) the LP is someone who's passed away, and I didn't want to make anyone sad.

So, perhaps prompted by my recent birthday, even though this list is a couple of years in the making, I shall be the first one to bare all:
(Wellll...maybe not all)
In no particular order.....

  • Get science and math knowledge back up to scratch
  • Get personal sigil tattooed on arm
  • Achieve total fluency in French and teach it as a foreign language
  • Move to another country
  • Visit Kevin Richardson's lion sanctuary
  • Visit the Knysna elephant park and bird sanctuary again
  • Visit Kgalagadi / Kruger National Park again
  • Read entire Harry Potter series
  • Attend an Andre Rieu concert
  • Attend another Santana concert
  • Attend a Faun and/or Omnia concert
  • Attend a Renaissance Faire and/or a festival like Elfia
  • Watch and own all Addams Family episodes
  • Be able to sit on knees
  • Take self defence classes
  • Get good at zumba
  • Learn to dance the steps of Baila Esta Cumbia well (specifically the ones that start at 2:55 of this magical video ;) )
  • Take up flamenco dancing
  • Own a fabulous flamenco dress
  • Have a Siamese cat (or two)
  • Interact with swans at any given opportunity (Amstel river would be awesome!)
  • Interact with squirrels at any given opportunity
  • Be Morticia for Halloween with Sean as my Gomez

Xyantha's Bucket List:

--Own a computer keyboard
--Make Sassy a delicious, poisoned, sandwich
--kill Sassy
--Get a really big bucket to transport Sassy's body in

;)

Fixed that for you ....

================================

I've never really done the bucket list thing. I know they are exciting and motivating for lots of people, just not for me. There will always be more things I want to do, and plenty of great things I'd enjoy doing, so trying to list out priorities just generates an infinite list of 'cool to do' things, or else a list of things that realistically I'm not ever going to do. But props to those who can do these things.

I'm with Tad, no bucket list for me. I tend to do whatever I feel like doing at any given time.

ODFFA- Is your personal sigil your profile pic?

Odette - remind me again - how old are you?

Because an André Rieu open air concert was the last major event present we gave to my late grand-mother for her 85th birthday.....


Personally I tend to be with the people who don't have a bucket list.

At the end of the day, I think I've been able to do my fair share of interesting and unusual things in life - so there is not much I can really influence where I feel I might have missed something and urgently need to do it.

I do currently have one important goal - get my first real book published.

1. Make a perfect baguette
2. Devour that bagette over the sink like an animal
3. Make another perfect baguette to prove it wasn't a fluke

Is this all in one bucket? And if so, is this in order?

They're stacked in descending order, like one of those russian dolls.

:bow: That list shouldn't be too hard to manage. I envy you.

If anything I feel like I've accomplished too much.

Very nice Melian method acting there, Cobra Rosa. Guess you get to check that off.

Stop calling me Cobra Rosa! I don't even get it! Granted, that’s true of most things. Actually..feel free to continue. :wubu:

I once gallantly defended Azerty's honour by posting a picture of Pink Panther kicking Clouseau's ass, to tell you off for being a meanie. Remember? That's why I called you Cobra Rosa. Melian's stolen pink avatar compelled me to reuse the name.

Apparently I like to confuse people out of their evil ways :p
