Farty's Fuckit List

Tagged for this about a gazillion years ago; in fact, so long ago I forget who tagged me now, sorry whoever you are.

A Fuckit List is the opposite of a Bucket List: a list of things you don't care about doing before you die instead of things you do want to do.

  • Write That Novel. Let's face it, I have trouble maintaining my concentration for more than - oh, look, shiny! Um, yeah. So what chance do I have of stringing together enough coherent thoughts to fill a book? And I don't think this really counts.

  • Scuba Diving off/on/through the Great Barrier Reef. Not that I'm afraid of getting eaten by a Great White Shark or that, it's just that I prefer my fish with tomato sauce, cheese, jalapeno peppers, onions, ground beef, green peppers and garlic dip. Clue: rhymes with banchovies.

  • Catch up on Google Reader. Like that's ever going to happen, sigh. 325 and climbing.

  • Climb the Eiffel Tower/Empire State Building/other tall thing. Tall buildings are overrated and planes go far higher anyway. Well, except Air Force One, obv.

  • Go on the Weakest Link. It's far more fun shouting the answers at the telly and then if you're wrong you only get embarrassed in front of your family, not half the nation.

  • Do that interview for The Pakistani Spectator. No, wait...can I redact that last one?

Your go. If ye can be bothered, like.

Fuckit to tall buildings. They were just designed to make normal people with a sense of not wanting to crash to a horrednous death scared.

I will, of course, be stealing this idea for my next blog post.

Anna - So it wasn't you that tagged me then? One down...

Sky dive or bungee jump. No way in hell. I'm not afraid of heights, because I would happily hang out the side of a helicopter and frequently lean over the edge of tall buildings, but sky diving and bungee jumping - no way.

I completely agree with you on the Weakest Link, as well as Jeopardy or any game show.

I also don't care if I ever go to Hawaii, or any other tropical "paradise." I hate the heat and humidity. Got enough of that when I lived in Texas.

BTW - My reader - down to 23. Ppppfth.

No hanging out of/jumping off of tall buildings/airplanes, etc. The Force [gravity] is strong in this one...

Also, not planning to go to Las Vegas/Disneyworld/Disneyland/any other Disney franchise (except maybe the Disney store). If I want to piss my money away, I have a perfectly good toilet right here at home to flush it down. Now Embra is a different story...

At the moment, I am thinking I really don't want to write THAT list before I die.


Mr Farty said...

Laurie - I did a Slingshot once. That was bad enough thankyouverymuch.

#Debi - Embra is great. The dollar exchange rate is also really good. Tell all your friends.

Jelly - Nice one.

I felt as though I was going to barf just looking at that photo. We have something here called the Scandia Screamer, which is something else I don't care to ever do (scroll down and click video link). People are actually NOT allowed to scream because it was bothering people in nearby apartment complexes.
