my life list

Inspired by  (I saw it one time on LJ spotlight). I thought it would fun to make one of my own, post it and bump it up once a year. Figure I would post it today cause it'll be easy to remember next year. And I'm gonna give myself a time limit -- 40 years old which gives me 7 years. Won't be able to do everything (don't have that much money or vacation time!) but let's see how I do. Wonder if I'll even be on LJ in 7 years.

Re: Happy Birthday!!!
Thanks!

Oh my gosh, YES!! I totally forgot to add Hawaii (I think that's where they filmed S2) to my list. And if I happen to stalk see Kevin or Toby, why, that would be just be a nice bonus. ;)

I just checked IMDB to see if they had any location info and lo & behold, guess who was born in Regina? Charlie David!

*off to amend my list*

Thanks! Hmmm, 7 things doesn't sound *too* bad. I already have plans for 3 of them so it's like I'm already halfway there!

How do you not have "visit Cincinnati" on that list??? HUH!? Hee.

I'll go with you to see Jensen, Johnny Depp and Jared!

Hey, you can hook up with Gale to do that walking up the CN Tower thing. That crazy girl does that every year. Freak.

Because part of list that I left out was "convince Fan to move to Toronto" :)

Gale does the CN Tower walk every year? Crazy girl.

You're going to be busy for those 7 years! Funny isn't it how we get caught up in the routine of daily life and all the fun things slip away unless a determined effort is made not to let that happen. Go you. :)


On your list I've been to Denamrk (Copenhagen only though), Newfoundland (lived there 6 years) and Scotland where I am now. One thing I'd love to do is the Pacific Coast highway.

I get stuck in ruts very easily so hopefully this will stop that from happening.

Oh yea, the Pacific Coast Highway. Maybe I can combine that into the California one.

I need more vacation time. And win the lottery.
