Plus More

I started this on 4 January 2010, after reading one of those questionnaires on a social networking site, when I realised the list of ‘things you have done’ makes a great list of ‘things to do (again)’.

Cutting out all the things I have no interest in accomplishing (such as breaking a bone), I’d like to see how long it takes for me to complete this.

( ) go to Mexico
(x) eat sushi (5/1/10)
(x) go skiing/snowboarding (12/2/11)
(x) lie on your back and watch cloud shapes go by (31/10/10)
(x) make a snow angel (26/11/10)
(x) have a tea party (2/4/10)
( ) fly a kite
( ) build a sand castle
(x) go puddle jumping (6/2/11)
( ) play dress up
( ) jump into a pile of leaves
( ) go sledding
(x) watch the sun set (22/12/10)
( ) sleep beneath the stars
(x) be tickled (11/2/10)
( ) pet a reindeer/goat
( ) win a contest
( ) eat a whole pint of ice cream in one night*
( ) go to the opposite side of the country
( ) swim in the ocean

( ) sit on a rooftop
( ) scream at the top of your lungs
( ) talk on the phone for more than 6 hours
(x) stay up all night* (12-13/6/10—staying awake until 5 when the sun’s coming up counts as staying up all night in my book; the falling asleep afterwards was very welcome)
( ) pick and eat an apple right off the tree
(x) climb a tree (26/2/11)
(x) be easily amused (2/2/10)
( ) catch a fish then eat it

( ) go to Europe

(x) kiss a mirror (6/1/10)

*NB: I reserve the right to change my mind about doing these, some for health reasons, and one because I don’t know if I really want to unnecessarily frighten a butterfly.
