New Things Left to Do

With 16 weeks left to go this year, there are still things I'm waiting to tick off my list. I've been struggling to find the time for them, and may not  get around to them at all. But as a way of spurring me on, here's a short list of new things I want to try and things that my friends have implored me to try. If you have any suggestions to add to the list, maybe you could name them in the comments section. It would help me out a lot!

Bungee jumping
GROB flight
Pole dancing
The slingshot
Roller derby
Charity work
Sumo tournament
Dance class
Cemetery tour
Mechanical bull

I'll cross them off as I go.


  1. I can honestly say that the only thing on that list I've ever done, or would want to do personally, is charity work. I love watching roller derby though! I have a friend who is a roller derby grrrl and my gawd, it's a rough sport.

    1. So I've heard! I've discovered one that apparently plays here every Friday, so there's an option.

  2. First, I'm still stuck on the beginning sentence...16 weeks until the end of the year??? 16 doesn't seem like very many! I feel like i need to go Christmas shopping right now!

    Please, please, if you do the pole dancing, please let there be a video! That would make my day :)

    I haven't time to read through all your past posts that I've missed, so ignore me if I say things you've done, but what about holding a tarantula? Going to a nursing home and doing an activity with the patients, like singing? Geocaching (do you have that in Australia?) Can't think of anything else right now, but I'll come back if I do!

    1. All good suggestions. We do have geocaching, but I keep completely forgetting what it is :P

  3. Wow...that's a heck of a list for just til the end of the year. I vote Roller Derby. That sounds like fun. Or sumo tournament!!!

    1. There's a Sumo tournament happening here on the first weekend of October. I need to book my tickets!

  4. I'd like to see you do a comedy routine where you walk up to random strangers and ask them, whether they'd like to kick you in the arse - if they say "yes", ask how much they'd pay for the privelege; if they say "no" ask how much you'd have to pay them. Then add up all the figures to work out whether your arse has a positive or negative value.

    You could use another question if you don't like my one. It's walking up to random strangers that's the main idea.

    1. That is both the worst and best idea I've ever heard. I'll take it under careful consideration.

  5. Something to add to your to-do list: MDMA.

    You're welcome.

    1. That wouldn't be new, I'm on it right now.
