A bucket list is a list of activities (usually one hundred or so) you want to do before you die. Everyone should have a bucket list. Here’s my list of thirty things I want to do before I die, in no particular order.
1.) Visit New York City during Gay Pride.
2.) Drive a Corvette or other high-performance sports car.
3.) Meet a sitting President and tell him or her what I think needs to be done to fix the country.
4.) Make an impassioned speech that changes someones mind about a social issue.
5.) Visit every continent on the planet. (I’ve got North America, Asia, and Europe covered. Still need Australia, South America, Africa, and Antarctica).
6.) Make love in Paris in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. (It’s very romantic, I think).
7.) Attend Fashion Week and hobnob with the designers and models.
8.) Write and direct a movie.
9.) Be on the news (in a good way).
10.) Discover something new, even if it’s by accident.
11.) Get a degree.
12.) Live an entire month as a woman to more fully appreciate what women deal with.
13.) Listen to jazz in New Orléans in the company of good friends.
14.) Orbit the earth.
15.) Invent something.
16.) Write a Pulitzer Prize winning novel that becomes an American classic.
17.) Publish an article in a major metropolitan newspaper with a byline.
18.) Make “WonderGoon” a household name.
19.) Throw out a ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game.
20.) Take and publish a photograph that changes history.
21.) Create a TV show that runs for twenty years and wins twenty Emmy’s.
22.) Sit down to dinner with Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Denis Leary, and Lewis Black and just listen to them talk about life.
23.) Write an authorized biography of a famous person and they tell me they like it.
24.) Win the lottery.
25.) Own a smart phone so I can be cool like the other kids.
26.) Visit all 50 states.
27.) Visit Canada.
28.) Argue a case in front of the Supreme Court (and win).
29.) Be noteworthy.
30.) Live long enough to see the USA Patriot Act fully repealed and America returned to a free and open country.
Okay I did your #2 while I lived in California and drove my friend’s Mustang GT for a few months. Wow was that some awesome power!!! And slightly orgasmic too. LOL
On #12…. while I admire your willingness to “see what we go through”, I have to point out that your experience wouldn’t be complete without the internal “shit” we deal with once a month. 😛
#13 I can help with, because I live here and I know some pretty sweet jazz joints.
When you do #19, I challenge you to make it better than the one here: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/Cirque-du-Soleil-performer-gets-nutty-with-Padre?urn=mlb-wp10971
#25… Smart phones are overrated. I’m quite happy with my dumbphone. We get along swimmingly.
“On #12…. while I admire your willingness to “see what we go through”, I have to point out that your experience wouldn’t be complete without the internal “shit” we deal with once a month. :P”
I was referring more to the social discrimination than any biological processes. Personally, I think it should be a part of growing up that we take on the gender roles of the opposite sex for a time, in order to erase some of the discrimination that women are subject to.
And you’re the only guy I know willing to do that, which I admire you for.
Thank you. *bows*
