Meme Cherry Go POP!

I don't even have virgin hair... But until now, I was an innocent in at least one sense, having never been visited by the meme fairy. Not even Alabama and I got tagged by my bro.

10 things I have not done, but intend to do before I die. I've adopted a travel theme for most of these, number one being the obvious exception...

1. I would like to perhaps eventually USE my college degree for the purpose in which it was intended...when and if I ever figure that out.

2. I intend to coerce my bro into attenting another meet. Jack too, for that matter. Hey, we make it France, and I get a vacation out of the deal.

3. From there, we could mosey on over to Scotland, where the red-headed step-brat and his lovely bride are assigned tour guide duty.

4. While in the neighborhood, I must visit Ireland, as I owe a fraction of my blood to that fair land, thus sayeth my cousin, who has studied our roots. In fact, when we lost her brother, she (per his wishes) scattered his ashes over an off-the-beaten-path castle there. I would very much like to visit this castle with her, and I am certain that she will be letting me know momentarily the name of said castle. (Yes, I should know it. And I will. Shortly.)

5. Christina has a familiarity with London, so she has that tour. Although, I am as equally interested in her mother's homeland... so she has that tour as well, someday.

6. Costa Rican blogmeet courtesy he who is totally restless and somewhat native.

7. Adam and I need to go back to Honduras. We've each done some mission work there, and it never leaves you. It just doesn't. Maybe someday I will write of the beauty, of the lifestyle, of how I washed clothes in the river and showered under a cold trickle... keeping a watchful eye on the four inch "baby" scorpion on the concrete block wall. But obviously, I need more than a paragraph to devote to this topic.

8. My girl and I need to do a cruise. This needs to be a very long cruise of the all inclusive variety. I want no rock climbing wall or ice-skating rink. No busy work. However, many Caribbean isles need to visited, as it is all about taking in the beauties of nature, and breathing the herbal goodness.

9. And when I get brave enough to take that trip to visit the land of the dancing bears, I know who to call. And, should I opt for the regular old bears, an Alaskan cruise will work.

10. Last but not least, it would be shameful for me to pass on without exploring our fine homeland, sea to shining sea, so I intend to do just that. And the sooner the better.

Tagging it on. I pass this meme to only one, and this one more virginal than I, as tonight is her FIRST POST EVER! Please go say hello to my first cousin Ophelia, as on this first night out, she explores the wonders of sex and ramen noodles.

Update: One more tag: It's always fun to tag someone who is sure to HATE this meme thing. And so, while there are many to choose from on the blogroll, I choose some new blood. Go now, Clockwork Orange Happier, and write your ten things that you haven't done, but intend to do before you die.

When are we leaving??

I'm in major escape mode. I suggest we book a flight to Paris and have ole' Jack meet us there.

Hey Sis,

Well, you shouldn't have any trouble with #2 - once my kidneys have recovered from the previous 40 years of mistreatment, I'll be ready to subject them to another 40 years.

Sorry I'm late checking out your list, I've had Wordpress blog woes, recently addressed by shitcanning WP and going back to Moveable Type.

Good luck getting Clockwork to conform enough to participate.

I fucking did it. Where's my damn cookie? And such a sweet cookie it is. The cookie . . . of victory . . .
