Things I've Done

  1. Started your own blog – Obviously; else, how would I be posting this?
  2. Slept under the stars – In a tent, in a parked car, in a drive-in theater, in a drunken stupor…
  3. Played in a band – I can't play any instruments.
  4. Visited Hawaii
  5. Watched a meteor shower
  6. Given more than you can afford to charity – No, but sometimes they've gotten my last dollar.
  7. Been to Disneyland/world – Both (WDW multiple times.)
  8. Climbed a mountain – Does hiking up into the Peaks District in the UK count?
  9. Held a praying mantis
  10. Sang a solo – Does it count if it was off-key karaoke?
  11. Bungee jumped – Aw yeah!
  12. (this item was missing from the list)
  13. Watched a lightning storm at sea – While we were out on a cruise ship on our honeymoon, we hit a storm with some serious turbulence (and Q got sick). I don't recall if there was any lightning, though.
  14. Taught yourself an art from scratch – I've taught myself a number of things from scratch.
  15. Adopted a child – It's pretty obvious that this little lunatic is the result of my and Q's DNA.
  16. Had food poisoning – Maybe. I've gotten sick after eating on a couple of occasions.
  17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
  18. Grown your own vegetables
  19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France – The one in France? As opposed to all of the other ones Da Vinci painted?
  20. Slept on an overnight train – It hasn't always been an overnight train I slept on either.
  21. Had a pillow fight
  22. Hitch hiked
  23. Taken a sick day when you're not ill – Many times. And recently, my sick days have more likely been the result of Richard or Q being sick than me being sick. If I'm going to be sick, it's usually on a Sunday.
  24. Built a snow fort
  25. Held a lamb – Not that I recall, but it could have happened at a petty zoo when I was a kid or something.
  26. Gone skinny dipping – On multiple occasions. I will now pause, while all of you scream and break out the brain bleach.
  27. Run a Marathon – I've done walkathons, and ran for part of that Idiotarod last year.
  28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice – Not even at the Venice in Las Vegas.

  30. Watched a sunrise or sunset – Both.
  31. Hit a home run
  32. Been on a cruise
  33. Seen Niagara Falls in person
  34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors – How specific are we being by "birthplace"? My ancestors are French Canadian, and I've been to Quebec…

  36. Taught yourself a new language – More than one, but they were computer languages.
  37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied
  38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person
  39. Gone rock climbing – Drunk. At midnight (carrying a small flashlight in my teeth). After a rainfall (when the rocks were all slippery). Good thing bumbles bounce.
  40. Seen Michelangelo's David
  41. Sung karaoke – Some may debate upon whether or not what I did qualifies as "singing".
  42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt
  43. Bought a stranger a meal at a restaurant – Does like a first/blind date count?

  45. Walked on a beach by moonlight – And left JohnBlarg behind when he passed out.

  48. Gone deep sea fishing
  49. Seen the Sistine Chapel in person

  52. Kissed in the rain – Not just in the rain, but in a freaking hurricane.

  65. Gone sky diving
  66. Visited a Nazi Concentration Camp
  67. Bounced a check – A long time ago. Oops.

  69. Saved a favorite childhood toy – All my childhood toys ended up lost, destroyed, and/or handed down to younger brothers.
  70. Visited the Lincoln Memorial
  71. Eaten Caviar – Fish eggs, fish eggs, roly-poly fish eggs…
  72. Pieced a quilt
  73. Stood in Times Square – Not sure. I've been to NYC several times over the last few decades, and wasn't always sober.

  94. Had a baby
  95. Seen the Alamo in person
  96. Swam in the Great Salt Lake

  99. Been stung by a bee
  100. Read someone else's "Things I've Done" List – I got this from rougewench.
