B is for Bucket List

What’s on your bucket list?

What do you want to do before you “kick the bucket?” What accomplishments/events would make your life complete? Like many of you, I saw the movie The Bucket List a few years ago and cried, but I wasn’t moved to create one.

I’m not sure why, but I actually didn’t make one until very recently. As of today, it has 56 items. I’m not the skydiving, bungee jumping, shark swimming, do-anything-that-involves-risk-of-bodily-harm kinda girl, so mine may seem pretty lame. Lots of them involve travel or meeting celebrities or authors. I’ll spare you the obvious ones like “Write novels full-time” and “See my name in the NY Times #1 bestseller spot.” (If those weren’t on there, I’d seriously need to reconsider my line of work.)  Without further ado, here are a few of my items:

  1. Work with UN Women.
  2. Be in a music video.
  3. Fly first class to Europe.
  4. Go ice skating.
  5. Dance around a may pole.

I’m proud to say I’ve already crossed a few things off:

  1. See Grease on Broadway starring Max Crumm. (He won the part on the TV show Grease: You’re the One That I Want. Yeah, I voted for him, over 70 times.)
  2. Live in a castle. (I got to stay in the castle in England where they filmed The Haunting about a month after shooting wrapped.)
  3. Change clothes in a car on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway. (It’s really not as risqué as it sounds. The car had tinted windows and we were going to the beach.)
  4. Get a tatoo. (Actually, I have two and am planning a third.)
  5. Experience life as a nun for a week. (I used to want to be one, so what can I say?)

So, what’s on your “bucket list?” What have you been able to cross off?

I’m probably going to do the A to Z Blogging Challenge again in the future, so please let me know if you have any suggestions for “B”topics.
