Bucket List III + Links

Bucket List developments.
(The new additions are at the bottom under the line.)
  • Spend New Year's Eve in Times Square
  • Scuba dive
  • Stargaze under the biggest sky on the darkest night
  • Attend ComicCon
  • Roadtrip to Maine and/or Canada
  • Have a restaurant give me food for singing
  • Be on the radio, sometime, somehow 
  • ---------------------------------
  • Be in a choreographed performance of "Beat It," just for the heck of it, and because my small dance group only did lyrical choreography to contemporary Christian music instead of getting to perform "Thriller" like previous groups
  • Get myself a motorcycle license.
Family dinners bring the best quotes.
All four of us got to have dinner together this evening.  This means that we got to laugh our heads off for a while over food.  The most memorable episode began when Dad pretended to be frustrated with whatever we girls were jabbering about.  "I'm going to my happy place now," he says.  He closes his eyes, and tilts his head as he pretends to imagine breezy palm trees and tasty desserts.  My sister and I immediately begin to question him about his happy place.  Where is it?  What's it look like?  Can we come?
"No, you can't come to my happy place.  You can't get in."
"What, do you have a bouncer?"
"What's he like?"
"He's mean and angry."
"Will he let us in because we're cute?"
This pestering doesn't get us anywhere far, so I pretend to go to my own happy place.  Taylor gets real quiet, too.  Finally, Mom pipes in:  "This is my happy place, when I stay here and all of you go to your own happy place."
Have you ever wondered how globes are made?
Okay, Harry Potter fans, here are two fun things that should make you smile.  A Wand TV Remote and a Wand Activated Candle.
This is a lady's sweet response when asked what one thing she would save if her house was on fire.

    1. Oh my goodness. Those wands are out of control awesome :)

    2. I like it! all of it! And I love those conversations at your dinner table.

    3. I performed a scene from W;t, which was my favorite play that we read. I totally hated my Environmental Science class - I only took it to fill a requirement. Maybe if the prof had been interesting... =P
