The Anti-Bucket List

March 12, 2013

in about us,bloggy goodness,facts about me,nerd alert

Second_day_hair_upgrade.I feel like I HAVE to post today. To say something thought provoking about turning the big 3-0. But honestly, I got nothing. Life is pretty hectic at the moment with 2 growing boys, busy work, constant germs annihilating our house. I’m not gloomy about my birthday, I am just tired.

But I am happy. I have 2 awesome boys. A panty-dropping piece of man candy. Amazing friends that I am in awe of daily. A kick ass job and coworkers to go with it. And a family that supports me in everything. 30 looks pretty freakin good. But enough with the “oh look at me, I’m awesome” junk. I thought I would use today to build on a concept my homegirl Laura introduced me to..

The Anti Bucket List

We all know bucket lists. I am not one for them because I am not a lofty goal maker. Call me lazy or whatever. But when Laura mentioned the anti-bucket list, I was all over it. So here are a few things I have no intention of ever doing:

  • Own a cat
  • Do a triathlon.
  • Watch A Christmas Story
  • Drink kombucha
  • Ride a motorcycle
  • Send an e-gift on Facebook
  • Cut my own hair
  • Be on a reality show. {do trivia shows count? Jeopardy would be neat}
  • Pet/meet/see a sloth
  • Make my own bread
  • Eat a living creature…knowingly. {Not riding a motorcycle will help with this, I believe.}
  • Visit the vast majority of South/Central America. {One word: parasites}
  • Let my children watch Dora in my presence
  • Porn
  • Stop preaching about the misspelling of “alot”
  • Buy a motivational poster
  • Make a bucket list

So what’s on your Anti-Bucket list?

aHA! I knew there was a reason I liked you. Today is my birthday as well. Although, I’m a few years ahead of you I’m afraid. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

I will never:
* eat sushi
* get a tatoo
* watch a movie/show about vampires
* tell my girls they’re fat/have unrealistic magazines of women laying around, etc.


Brandy March 13, 2013 at 9:26 pm

I have done all this. Not even Interview with the Vampire? That was pretty good.

I will never:

- let my boys say something sexist/racist/ignorant without jumping all over them
- fly in a hot air balloon in Egypt
- visit Antarctica. Because it’s cold as hell.
-ever ever ever again get a HIDA scan with CCK done again, aka the devil’s torture machine
- run another marathon. Do we not all realize the guy at the end of the first marathon died????
- fast for “health reasons” FOOD IS DELICIOUS.
- smoke. It’s stupid.
- post vague statuses on Facebook, trying to get people to ask me what’s wrong, in an attempt to get attention

::returns motivational poster she got you as a birthday gift::

My Anti-Bucket List. I will never:
1) approach a goose or a peacock
2) eat livermush (stop it.)
3) go bungee jumping
4) join a cult
5) own a bird as a pet
6) I’m with you on the porn thing. Nope.

I love you, dude. It’s great that your birthday is in March & all, but April > March, okay?

First of all I’d like to say I think my parents made another baby, didn’t tell anyone and you are the sister I never knew. You seriously crack me up.

On my Anti-Bucket List:
Not cuss after getting a paper cut
Shave off my eyebrows
Eat off someone else’s spoon
Willingly listen to Nickelback
Eat oysters without a shit load of hot sauce/crackers
Pull a loose tooth, not my territory ew
and finally…
Run over an animal on purpose

Happy Birthday! I agree about South America. I’ve watched too many of those shows on exotic parasites. Europe only! I used to hate A Christmas Story, but it has grown on me.

My list: I will never get a tattoo, go mountain climbing, eat a bug (willingly and knowingly), move back to my hometown.

drive a school bus.

Happy birthday! Fun list. I agree with a lot (ha!) of yours. And … will never get a tattoo, smoke, run another race (or possibly at all again – my knees & hips just can’t take it anymore).


Tracy @ The UnCootdinated Mommy March 13, 2013 at 12:00 am

Happy birthday!! :) welcome to the club


peggy March 27, 2013 at 3:51 pm

omg… “panty-dropping piece of man candy” …I’ve never heard this before, but this is awesome!
