I'm actually pretty happy. I'd like to be around long enough to have grandchildren, too. I used to be one of those 'never going to have kids' people.
That would be a really interesting test to get done. Hope things are peaceful with your visits.
My bucket's got a hole in it…
in two years we going to Europe buying a van and visit all the countries I dreamed of seeing. also visit the Orkney Island to see where my 6-grandfather came from and a small coastal city in France and trace the other side of our mixed family history, I would love to see both g-kids graduate from university and learn how to play cocaine on a les Paul and then do a pilgrimage…
old ;ady, nice to "see" you:)
Jess, my son thinks the same way; that aliens wldnt come in peace. I however cant wait!!!! I wld love it !
Best of luck! A FULL marathon?! Oy vay!
I want to get abducted by aliens then share my story on coast to coast while touring the UFO circuit across the nation!
I want to go to Great Britain, Italy, France and New Zealand. The last because I've got friends there. Great to see them, and it's a beautiful country.
@Mad LybYou just mentioning The Twilight Zone reminds me of the creepy stewardess/nurse who says "Room for one more, honey" before the airplane takes off and explodes. Did you see that one? It's one of those things that's burned on my brain from childhood. When given the opportunity to tell somebody there is room for one more, I will always say in my monotone voice "Room for one more, honey". It amuses me (only)
That's my number 1 as well. Brother and te bed friends, Winnebago and 40 days to hit all 32 parks.
MadLyb-I am terrified of UFO's/aliens. Like one of my biggest fears of all times. I just have this feeling they will not be coming in peace. Maybe I've seen Signs too many times.
Taking my entire family to Europe and visiting as many historical sites as possible. Seeing Phil Collins in concert (he's no longer touring so that's not gonna happen boo). Go to Africa and see as many animals up close as I can. Meet founding members of the Vidocq society and pick their brains for days. Write and publish my own work.
See a UFO. I've worked for an org that studied them, but I'd actually like to see one. I'm talking full blown spaceship. I'd ask them to take me away, but saw that horrible "Twilight Zone" episode and don't want to be served anytime soon.
Jamaica is worth every penny.
–Experiencing the Surrealistic grandeur of La Sagrada Familia finished as Gaudi intended.
–Discussing with Ian Holm what it was like to play Lenny in the original staging of The Homecoming.
–Playing sevens against Lomu.
–Hearing Hawking describe his concept of the Unified Field Theory.
…And a hug from my kids, and I'd be good to go.
@Rangeman, I like the way you think! 😉
See the Northern and/or Southern lights. Get to Papua New Guinea, travel down the Amazon, sing o. Americas Got Talent and knock it out the ballpark like that British lady, go on tour and get acting roles. Lotta unfulfilled dreams there.
Make out with Brandon Flowers. Hang out with Bill Murray and have laughing attack. A successful usage of polyamorous at a dinner party.
Hugh Jackman? 🙂Seriously, to go to Ireland and trace my grandfathers roots. He had to leave Ireland after the Easter Rebellion and we know very little about his past.
To bang Jason Momoa until his pelvis breaks 🙂
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!
@Munch I'll beam RDJ up to you when I'm done with him
Banging Robert Downey Jr. Hey a girl can dream.
Space. I want to go to space. If you throw in Robert Downey Jr or David Tennant as company all the better, but I just want to go to space.
I want to see a moose in the wild and hear it bleat.
Retire in France and become a perfumerie tour guide as my retirement job.
There's more but these are 2 that are imperative.
To keep travelling.To not become frail, not so much a bucket list but a choice. It gets me out of bed to the gym and cleaning my house & keeping my mind active.To finish the novel I started.
Ok, I'm all, "I don't have a bucket list", blah, blah, blah, but I have to say that Taracu, I'm adopting your list, K??
Bunny hop across Europe
Have enough extra financially to be able to snowbird, do loads of travel, donate to the charities I am passionate about, and be a blessing for my kids (not a liability like it seems many people my age are setting up to be)
I just want to have dinner with Bette Midler!
Visit Puma Punku and Easter Island.
you know,as I get older, I dont really have one anymore. Anything I thought I wanted to do I have lost interest. I'm just happy doing what Im doing.
Like RQ, I've been fortunate to have lived in and/or visited most of the places I've really wanted to, born and raised in NY, college in New Orleans and Madrid, live in Los Angeles now. In recent years, I've been to Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Peru. I still want to go to Africa and Asia (especially Thailand). Apparently RQ and I share a brain. 🙂
I'd like to go sky diving I think…maybe do improv comedy, visit northern Europe and meet more of my CDaN friends. 🙂
I lived in Madrid my junior year of college and spent quite a bit of time at the Prado. That painting is pretty spectacular. 🙂
Pretty lucky – I've done most of mine and been to and/or lived in some of the most interesting cities in the world – Paris, Vegas, London, New York, Dubai, and just became a mom. I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, Africa and now I really want to go to Thailand. So I guess that's it?
Meet you, Enty. I can keep my mouth shut, I promise. =)
And I want to become fluent in Spanish. I just realized my apology for speaking poorly in Spanish has been incorrect all these years. It's NOT lo siento porque hablo malo? Oops!! (Can a Spanish speaker please correct me until I order my Rosetta Stone?)
I will also need to become conversational in Italian, for when I buy my winery in Tuscanny. Boom! Bucket list item #3
I really want to have grandkids more than anything. My kids are all in school now, so it's probably not happening this year.
I want to live in Europe for a year, which is very do-able. We do a lot of traveling, and places at the top of my list are the pyramids and Brazil.
You'd be amazing, RCB!!!
Travel to Ireland, see a manatee in the wild, meet many of my newly found relatives.
It was very beautiful though
Honestly not a damn a thing.
Me, that's sweet – contentment is nothing to be ashamed of. I was just thinking the same thing – nothing springs to mind for me, and for that I am grateful. I'm living the dream every day right where I am :-).
Travel all of Europe, and maybe live there someday.
Be the subject of a blind item involving Hugh Jackman and Clive Owen and hotel bathrobes.
Win the lottery, put enough away to live on for the rest of my life, and then go on a massive philanthropy spree donating money to charity groups in the name of a*holes. (Like $5k to AIDS Awareness in the name of Fred Phelps, $5k to NOW in the name of Donald Trump, $5k to Planned Parenthood for Rush Limbaugh.) I love me a side dish of revenge!
See the Northern lights, my husband and I went to Iceland a few years ago, and spent a VERY cold few hours ontop of a mountain… Did not see a flipping thing ugh
Vicki E, that made me laugh – Robot, get to it!!
