10 things

…that make life worth it.

1. Well-told stories. Really good ones; the kind that make your imagination explode
2. The perfect coffee buzz
3. Amazing Grace
4. Honest conversations that ramble into the wee hours
5. Dancing

6. Sleeping the sleep of the just…in a really comfortable bed. Goose feather pillows, supersized mattress, 1,000-thread-count sheets, etc. etc.
7. Pretty things
8. Laughing until you cry, and then laughing some more
9. Working with other people to make something beautiful
10. Unconditional love

…to do before I die.

1. Learn to shoot
2. Spend the night in a castle
3. Tour Italy (properly, this time: Milan, Venice, Tuscany, Rome, Naples, Sicily, the whole bit)
4. See the basement of the Louvre
5. Live on a houseboat
6. Drive on the Auto-Bahn
7. Run a marathon
8. Run a bookstore - or a coffeehouse - or a circus
9. Ride an elephant
10. Dance all night

…that I’m procrastinating about.

1. Updating my blog (heh)
2. Sorting through about a million pictures that I should probably post sometime this age
3. Reading any more one-acts
4. Sending my mail
5. Making doctor’s/dentist’s/who-else-wants-to-charge-for-my-health? appointments
6. Writing much of anything
7. Practicing my scales (much harder after the calluses on your fingertips have gone away)
8. Putting my finances in order
9. Applying an appropriately critical eye (and, likely, sewing kit) to my closet
10. Having some potentially really awkward conversations

…that I am mortally afraid of.

1. Spiders
2. Snakes
3. Centipedes
4. Creepy crawly things
5. Flying things with stingers
6. Being alone
7. Being unloved
8. Being unneeded
9. Being unwanted
10. Being alone

  5. Learn to shoot what? Guns? A specific gun? Bows? A camera?

  6. PLCT : *SMILES*

    Matt: Guns, certainly, (although my longbow could use some practice). Something small and relatively ladylike - maybe a Smith & Wesson .38.


I love getting your comments, if only for proof that I'm not just talking to myself.

As always, feel free to say whatever you like - criticism, questions, suggestions, whatever. The best part of blogging is the conversations that come from YOU.
