100 things

I saw this on Leica Forrest's blog... I wanted to give it a go, but I changed a few things. I thought it was a little America biased.....(sorry Americans.)

The idea is to bold the things you have done, and perhaps consider trying what you haven't. I have been talking about making a bucket list for months, and this is a great start!

1. Started your own blog
2. Slept under the stars
3. Played in a band
4. Visited Hawaii
5. Watched a meteor shower
6. Given more than you can afford to charity
7. Been to Disneyland /world
8. Climbed a mountain (does Pimple Hill count? It felt like a mountain when I was seven...)
9. Held a praying mantis

10. Sang a solo
11. Bungee jumped
12. Visited Paris
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch
15. Adopted a child (just Kasmira Hannah... My Cabbage Patch Kid)
16. Had food poisoning
17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
18. Grown your own vegetables

19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France
20. Slept on an overnight train
21. Had a pillow fight
22. Hitch hiked ... yeah, but I was picked up by someone I know... so does it count? I also knew they were coming behind me, so probably not...
23. Taken a sick day when you're not ill
24. Built a snow fort
25. Held a lamb
26. Gone skinny dipping
27. Run a Marathon (no, but I am thinking a triathalon - like the mini one in my town - might be doable....)
28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice
29. Seen a total eclipse
30. Watched a sunrise or sunset
31. Hit a home run
32. Been on a cruise
33. Seen Niagara Falls in person
34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors
35. Seen an Amish community ... no, but Hutterites live down the road, and with the exception of their religion, farming methods, and use of electricity, I think they are close to the same!
36. Taught yourself a new language
37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied
38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person
39. Gone rock climbing.... but not real rocks, just the ones at the climbing center, and even then only got three feet off of the ground before I freaked out.
40. Seen Michelangelos David
41. Sung karaoke
42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt
43. Bought a stranger a meal at a restaurant
44. Visited Africa
45. Walked on a beach by moonlight
46. Been transported in an ambulance
47. Had your portrait painted (does drawn count?) or what about a portrait I took painted?
48. Gone deep sea fishing

What a great list. If I was a diligent blogger I would totally copied that idea. I only blog on my facebook group, I guess I need to change that. Very interesting, thanks for the inspiration.
