Interestingly, I don't actually want to do everything on this list. I'm pretty sure none of us want to break a bone for example, nor do I necessarily want to watch someone die (though I must admit I've come close with some of my exes). And there are some significant things that I do want to do that aren't on that list, or that I've already done that I found significant. Here's my additions to the bucket list:

(x) seen an active volcano
(x) been to the Rockies
(x) been to Windsor Castle
( ) seen the Queen
( ) sat in a natural hot springs (I'm not counting the spring-fed concrete pools at Miette, Banff and the like)
(x) seen the while cliffs of Dover (and had a chalk fight with my sister there)
(x) visited the Smithsonian
( ) visited the pyramids at Giza
( ) visited all 6 of the populated continents (I'll take a pass on Antarctica thanks. So far I've done Australia, Asia, North America and Europe. South America and Africa left to go)
( ) met someone famous whom you admire and been cool enough to simply say "I love your work and it was an honour to meet you" and NOT ask for an autograph. (I think asking celebs for autographs is tacky anywhere other than in a setting where autographs are "expected". If you encounter the celeb somewhere like spring training for baseball players, or book signings, appearances at conventions or other "staged" autographing opportunities where it would be odd to work your way up the line and not ask for one, go for it. But if you run into them in a shop or a restaurant or on vacation, let them have a life.)
(x) birth a baby
( ) watch my daughter walk down the aisle
(x) paid a bill, cooked and cleaned up after a perfect meal, done a load of laundry without wrecking something and lived within my means
( ) taught the above life skills to my children

What's on your bucket list?

Go to your Flickr account (or whatever online host you use), click on the third to last page in your album, select the third picture on the page. Post and explain. (Cheating a bit and going third last album, third pic, since that's how I organize my stuff.)



This is a pic of my peeps at our "coming out" event, where all the Tudor Ladies wore the dresses we'd spent the last 8 months diligently patterning and sewing ourselves for the very first time. This was Winter War 2004, right before I was banished to the wilds of Edmonton, and at this point I still didn't know I was going. I was also apprenticed to Tangwystl that day, so it was about the most special event ever. Happy memories.

And while we're here, how about some linkspam:

Your home is a

Athletic Gamer's Mansion

Your kitchen is stocked with chips, dips, and assorted caffeinated beverages. There's a pantry with emergency backup caffeinated beverages. You also have some breakfast cereals in there, but you haven't had breakfast since last Spring. Your master bedroom has blankets printed with images of Mario and Link. Your study includes unread copies of various gamer magazines, each purchased for the free demo CDs. One of your garages houses your Hummer, and others contain your H2, and H3... with room for an H4, if they ever invent one.

Your home also includes a guest wing and private quarters for your servants. Your guests enjoy your collection of every console and associated game ever made. Except the Intellivision -- those controllers drive them NUTS. Outside is your hedge maze and gardens, meticulously tended by a team of world-class botanists.

And, you have a pet -- a koopa named "Shelly".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:


Build YOUR Dream House!

This is what you get when you spend all your time either playing WoW or Roller Derby. An odd combination if I do say so myself. Slothishly inactive paired with ass-kicking, blood pumping fierceness.

Merchant's Wife
You scored 56% nobility, 46% magic, 23% slavery, and 69% practicality!
You are the wife of a Viking merchant. You're more well-traveled than others, and probably live in one of the famous Viking trading towns, like Birka, Kaupang, or Ribe. Heck! You might not even live in Scandinavia! You could live in Dublin, Novgorod, or elsewhere. You've likely got lots of gold and amber jewelry and run a large household, but your husband is away a lot. You are a free woman and your life pretty much rocks.

You scored as XIII: Death. Death is probably the most well known Tarot card - and also the most misunderstood. Most Tarot novices would consider Death to be a bad card, especially given its connection with the number thirteen. In fact this card rarely indicates literal death.Without "death" there can be no change, only eventual stagnation. The "death" of the child allows for the "birth" of the adult. This change is not always easy. The appearance of Death in a Tarot reading can indicate pain and short term loss, however it also represents hope for a new future.

Senator
You scored 75%!
Ah, a senator! You are a member of the ruling class in Roman society. Using your exceptional Latin skills you debate policy and vote in the interests of the people on important matters of state. You are a powerful individual, and your words catch the ear of the upper-class as well as your peers in the senate. Like all senators, you are ambitious. Hence, being a mere senator is not enough for you...

You scored as Richelieu. You are Cardinal Richelieu, prelate of France. Manipulation and puppetmastering are your stock-in-trade, and you always have two or three schemes going at once. You don't have a need for romance, because you figure lovers out too quickly and then they bore you. You are a treacherous friend and a downright dangerous enemy.

Go to Wikipedia. Type in your birth date (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.

June 2

Three Events
1763 - Pontiac's Rebellion: At what is now Mackinaw City, Michigan, Chippewas capture Fort Michilimackinac by diverting the garrison's attention with a game of lacrosse, then chasing a ball into the fort. (OMG, LOVE this story)

1865 - American Civil War ends - Forces under Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith surrender at Galveston, Texas, becoming the last to do so.

1925 - Wally Pipp, first baseman of the New York Yankees, asks for a day off due to a headache. He is replaced in the lineup by Lou Gehrig, who also starts the next 2,128 consecutive games.

1935 - Baseballer Babe Ruth announces he is going to retire from the sport.

1953 - Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, the first to be televised.

Two birthdays
1731 - Martha Washington, First American first lady (d. 1802)
1740 - Marquis de Sade, French author (d. 1814)
1982 - Jewel Staite, Canadian actress

One death
1941 - Lou Gehrig, American baseball player (b. 1903)

Honourable mention:
1897 - Mark Twain, responding to rumors that he was dead, is quoted by the New York Journal as saying, "The report of my death was an exaggeration."

And yeah, I can't count - so sue me. History is just too interesting darnit.

And yes, having typed that subject line, I DO have the children's game show theme "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" playing over and over in my head. Stupid ear-worm. I loved that show, and I so wanted to compete on it as a kid.
