The list

I just finished reading "The Next Thing on My List" by Jill Smolinski (why yes I am selling it on ebay - thank you for asking) and it has gotten me thinking. The book is based on a list that a gal has made of things she wants to do before her 25th birthday, her list includes lose weight, wear sexy shoes, be the hottest girl at Oasis, take her mom and grandma to see Wayne Newton, make Bddy Fitch pay among other things. Check out Jill's life list on her blog - she has great ideas and great stories.

My 25th is long gone, so is my 35th but I still would like to make a list of things that I want to do.

My lifetime goal is to see all 50 states - I have done about 28 and plan vacations in an effort to see one or two a year.

I have always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon.

And frankly, that is all I can come up with - if I want to go somewhere, I go. If I want to eat something, I eat it. If I want to try something, I try. Your my friends, you know me - what should I add to the list??

So funny that you wrote this!!! I was just digging through this stack of magazines, and found that book THIS MORNING!!! I totally forgot about it (I think I read about 20 pages), but I need to finish it!
As for what you should add to your list.....I've got to think about that one. It needs to be something "BIG", something you can't "just do"....

Be careful dude - did you see the news today? Could be bad Karma to start a list.
"LOS ANGELES - Dave Freeman, co-author of "100 Things to Do Before You Die," a travel guide and ode to odd adventures that inspired readers and imitators, died after hitting his head in a fall at his home. He was 47."
I heard that he was only half finished his list. Oh well, they say its the journey not the destination. Am I dropping a poopie on your cool idea? Sorry girl! Just having a little fun with you!
I personally have "retire" at the top of my list. I would be a great couch potato!
