My Bucket List

When I turned 30, I got my arm inked. It’s something I wanted to do for years, but wasn’t brave enough. Now it’s 80% done, I’m so pleased and proud that I did it!

It’s made me think though, what else is on the to-do list? Why don’t I get stuck in?

So here it is: My unfinished, ever-growing Bucket List.

  • Buy a piece of art that makes my toes curl with happiness.
  • Go on a cruise through theĀ Mediterranean.
  • New York needs it’s own list: Enjoy a bagel in Central Park, re-enact Sleepless In Seattle up the Empire State, visit Tiffany’s, see the Statue of Liberty, get my photo taken with bad-ass homies, eat New York pizza, catch a Broadway show, NYE in Times Square.
  • Wee on the Hollywood sign.
  • Meet Midget Elvis in Vegas.
  • Mardi Gras in New Orleans, yo!
  • Marry my best friend.
  • Learn to play guitar. Properly. Rock out.
  • Befriend an old person. Make their life magical.
  • Sort my fingernails out.
  • Introduce a child to Pop Rocks. Video them. Put it on YouTube. Get 100,000 views.
  • Pompeii.
  • Ride a mechanical bull.
  • Shave my head.
  • Help to make someone else’s dream come true.
  • Acquire a set of Crown Lynn pink polkadot plates like my grandmother had.
  • Send a postsecret in to postsecret

Some awesome things I’ve already done:

  • Drunk a pint in a tiny Irish pub, goaded on by tiny Irish men.
  • Made it into The Sun for ‘stalking’ a pop singer. Long story.
  • Visited [the outside of] Anne Frank’s house.
  • Reverse bungy. Didn’t lose my lunch.
  • Taken a rickshaw through Singapore.
  • Loved and lost.
  • Full arm tattooooooooooo!
  • Gone 230km/h in a car.
  • Been on TV in at least four countries.
  • Ridden the London Eye.
  • Pole danced while eating fried chicken.

So… Suggestions for what I might add?

    Ring the fire alarm in a building. I’ve decided if I get to be 80 years old and I still haven’t done it, I’m going to “ring and run” (or motor scooter-it as may be the case).
