100 Things, Part 3

51. Gone scuba diving or snorkeling

I had a snorkel on, and I was in the ocean with a bunch of fish, so I suppose the answer is yes.

52. Kissed in the rain

Kissed what in the rain? Kissed my cat in the rain? Yes, and wet cats smell bad, so I wouldn't recommend it.

53. Played in the mud

Mud-whomping is good fun, especially if you have a lot of good clean squishy mud (good = no twigs or leaves or pokey things).

54. Gone to a drive-in theater

I sat on the roof of our van. The movie was Casper. Wahoo.

55. Been in a movie

Hmm... That depends on what kind of movie you're talking about. If you mean the type of movie that you'd find on IMDB, then no, I haven't been in a movie.

56. Visited the Great Wall of China

No. We went to a Chinese restaurant instead. Mmm, that sounds really good right now.

57. Started a business

Business isn't really my thing.

58. Taken a martial arts class

But I can still take you, so don't provoke me! :o)

59. Visited Russia

I would quite like to visit Russia. I would also like to speak Russian.

60. Served at a soup kitchen

I served at a homeless dinner, but it wasn't soup, and it wasn't at a soup kitchen.

61. Sold Girl Scout Cookies

Yes! Over the years I have done considerably more buying than selling, however.

62. Gone whale watching

Did we? Or did we only talk about it? I can't remember. I went flying fish watching though, and that was exciting.

63. Got flowers for no reason

Does this mean that I bought flowers for no reason, or received flowers for no reason? I don't think there's ever no reason for receiving flowers, but there can sometimes be no reason for buying flowers.

64. Donated blood, platelets and/or plasma

I gave blood once, just to prove to myself that I could do it. I don't like things going in my body that shouldn't be there (like needles). Halfway through, the lady told me my lips were purple. She watched me closely after that, I guess to make sure I didn't faint.

65. Gone sky diving

I have really no desire to do so. I'm a frequent flier in my dreams, and that's good enough for me.

66. Visited a Nazi Concentration Camp


And why is this sandwiched in between skydiving and bounced checks? Of all the inappropriate places... Of course, I don't think there really is an appropriate place for a concentration camp. It's a category all its own.

67. Bounced a check

Do you know, I honestly can't remember. There was one thing once that might have been a bounced check, but I'm not sure.

68. Flown in a helicopter

That would be fun.

69. Saved a favorite childhood toy

More like every childhood toy. Where are they? In a box, in the garage (of course).

70. Visited the Lincoln Memorial


71. Eaten caviar

Why would I want to do that? Unfortunately, I think I have.

72. Pieced a quilt

Confession: I don't sew unless I need to. That's not to say I don't enjoy it, I just don't do it.

73. Stood in Times Square

If I went to New York, I'd do a little bit more than stand in Times Square. Why don't you ask if I've been to the Met? Or stood in Times Square on New Year's Eve? Those are much more exciting.

74. Toured the Everglades

All these things require money...

75. Been fired from a job

No, but I've quit some.
