The Buckin' Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list?  I don't. I won't be making one either.  There are things I want to do, and I’ll do them.  Or not.  If my memory gets so bad that I can’t think of things I enjoy without notes to myself, then I’ll stay home and watch the same TV program over and over.

I’ve read TIPS on making these lists if you can’t think of anything on your own (which in itself is pretty sad).
  • Experience a sunrise
  • Experience a sunset
Are you kidding me? Stand at your window! Done. Unless you live underground, two off the list with no effort at all!

And worse –

  • Participate in the “Tour de France”.
    Well there’s a major disappointment staring you in the face until you toss your list in the nearest swamp.

    And if I WAS making a bucket list, it would be short and sweet.  Paris.  France.  Period.

    I Googled "opposite of bucket list" and according to the Urban Dictionary, it's a "fu*** it" list. (My blog is rated 'G'. I can’t swear but you can if you want).

    Anyway, it's more fun to make a "fu**it" list" because you feel you've already accomplished something without doing anything, if you know what I mean. Here's mine

    Before I die, I don't want to:

    • See a freak show (or worse, be in one)

    • Be in a hotdog eating contest
    • Walk the length of the country.  Any country.
    • Spend time in a swamp
Bogie and Kate are much more adventurous than me

    • Eat anything that’s live
    • Fall off the Eiffel Tower (although it's the preferred way to make my permanent exit)
    • Take a sewing course
    • Sit through another Ingmar Bergman film (fine - you like them, I don't)

    Just the stills depress me.  By not going to a Bergman film, I'm actually achieving my fu**it list.

    See?  So far I’ve accomplished 100% of these!  And I could probably think of a ZILLION more!

    All I’m saying, is why would you have a list with 1,000 things you can’t possibly do before you kick the can?  To me that’s depressing.


  1. No bucket list here, either. I don't like to think about what I might do past tomorrow. If I would put something on a list that would require me to plan all sorts of other things to make the bucket list thing happen...hence it turns into work. If I said I want to go on a trip, I would have to figure airfare, car rentals, wardrobe and on and on ...now it is work. Screw that.

    I like your idea of the fu** it list. I am much better at deciding all the things, I have no intention of doing. Actually, you did part of the work for me as I like all of yours, I'll just copy and paste them to mine. Then I will add,

    I will never visits either the North or South Pole as the cold doesn't appeal to me.

    I will never let myself weigh more than 400 pounds because I wouldn't want to have to shop for clothes in that size. I bet they are hard to find.

    I will never cheat on my husband cause I have it good here and don't want to take any chances.

    I would never walk naked down the street...unless someone gifted me a whole body lift and new boobs.

    I will never drive a car in NYC because the cabbies there scare the crap out of me.

    And I, too, have a 1000 more but I am wasting your time.

  2. I'm going to copy and paste your list to mine because we obviously think the same way! 400 pounds is pretty heavy and I bet even WalMart doesn't carry too many styles for those over 375. NYC cabbies scare the crap out of me too - they also make me throw up (it's happened more than once)!
