Laurie's Life List

Things I want to do before I kick the bucket.  Buy the farm.  Push up the daisies, meet my reward.  Bite the dust, give up the ghost.  Take a dirt nap, meet my maker.  You get the point.  Oddly, I am fascinated by death.  Always have been.  Did a paper on euthanasia called "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" in high school.  I have included childhood dreams too.

1.  Move to San Francisco - Done
2.  Watch whales somewhere
3. Take a cruise to Alaska
4.  Walk all the streets of San Francisco - in progress
5.  Certify scuba diving - took the classes, passed all the tests, but couldn't go down past 8 feet cause of my ears.  MAJOR accomplisment tho, since I'm terrified of water, and the claustrophobia caused flashbacks of childhood sexual abuse.

Before the final curtain drops, or go six feet under.  Meet my demise, cash in my chips.  Meet St. Peter, go to heaven.

I like this format better.  It's from

  1. Get my passport and use it for Italy
  2. Visit Ground Zero (the memorial)
  3. Visit every farmer's market in San Francisco

  7. Learn to Rollerblade
  8. Learn Sign Language
  9. Learn CPR
  10. Plant a Large Flower Garden
  11. Complete a 5K

  16. Go to the Daytona 500
  17. See all Best Picture Oscar-winning films from my lifetime
  18. Volunteer at an animal shelter

  20. Send a message in a bottle
  21. Write a book
  22. Visit all 50 states

Before I meet the Grim Reaper, cross over, "move to Idaho" (I didn't know that was a euphemism for death - hilarious!)

Okay, moving on.  (no pun intended!  I slay myself!) Before I go belly-up, assume room temperature, free myself from earthly affairs, I am proud to say I have accomplished the following items on my bucket list:
