On Bucket Lists and the Like

Call me a bitter, snarky cynic, but making a list of things to do before you die (Climb Manchu Picchu! Dive the Great Barrier Reef! Learn a foreign language! Raise egg-laying hens and spin my own yarn!) seems like an fanciful exercise indulged in by those who aren't actually facing their own mortality.

My goals are so mundane they're entirely predictable and not the least bit worth mentioning.

I only have one item on my list: obtain an apology from Sandra Bullock for every romantic comedy she ever made. I don't think I'll ever get it, but I like having it on my list.

Heh..."Hope Floats" was a long running joke with an old Navy/Seattle friend, the details of which escape me at the moment... :)

i find it hard to believe your goals are mundane - mundane is one adjective i would never use to describe you...
