I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?

Things to Do

Things I've done are in bold and things I want to do are italicized. I swear this kind of crap (the lists and passed along stuff) *will* end....but it's a phase. Let me work through it and don't gripe or I'll bite you. Rawr.

04. Taken a Ferrari for a test drive

05. Been inside the Great Pyramid

22. Watched a meteor shower

44. Watched wild whales

74. Crashed a party
75. Gotten divorced --opposite italicization
76. Gone without food for 5 days --oh geez, no way...
77. Made cookies from scratch --Again, more times than I can count. I thank my mom for this one because even though she rarely does anything 'from scratch' any more, she passed along this sort of thing to me when I was younger.

95. Performed in Rocky Horror
96. Raised children --Bolded because I've certainly had more than my fair share of raising children...but italicized because they weren't necessarily my own, so I'd like to do that eventually

121. Hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon
122. Slept for more than 30 hours over the course of 48 hours
123. Visited more foreign countries than U.S. states --That would be awesome. If I want to visit all 50 states and achieved this one, too, then that obviously means I've made enough money to sufficiently travel occasionally over the years.
124. Visited all 7 continents --Actually, I'm not sure I would want to do this. It'd be cool to be able to say I did, but Antarctica doesn't necessarily rank high on my list of places to visit, and for the money it'd cost, I could visit other places instead.
125. Taken a canoe trip that lasted more than 2 days

143. Built your own PC from parts
144. Sold your own artwork to someone who didn’t know you
145. Had a booth at a street fair
146. Dyed your hair --I added lowlights for the first time last year...seemed like I waited forever compared to everyone I knew.
147. Been a DJ
148. Shaved your head
149. Caused a car accident --It was both of our faults, technically, and I blame the semi-truck more than I do myself, but I can still say that yeah, I partially caused it, I suppose
150. Saved someone’s life --I don't like thinking about it, but when it comes to talking someone off the ledge of suicide or the depression that would lead to suicide, yes, I've saved more than one life....I 'really' don't like the way that sounds, though.

Alrighty, you ladies and gents that have already begun grouching at me for not being personal in my blog ("It's a *blog.* It's supposed to be about *you.*" Blah, blah, blah), there ya go. You wanted personal, so you got it. Now LEAVE ME ALONE about it. I didn't create this to talk about what's going on in my life...if you want that, come talk to me. This is for my randomness that the majority of you that I know can't handle on a long term basis. So shush your whining and let me be my quirky self before I bite you all. *Growls*
And fyi...I just counted 56 that I've already done (although it could be slightly off). I think doing a third of them is actually pretty good on my end. In the next 10 years, I hope to cross several more of those off my list, too...
