Buckets of Aspirations

This week the movie Bucket List is released on DVD.

I haven't seen Bucket List, but this got me thinking...What do I want to accomplish before I die?

I must be living a pretty satisfying life, because I swear I scoured the recesses of my ambitions and was only able to come up with four unchecked items. They are, in no particular order:
#1 Tour a post office. I'm talking back room, ALL access. (How does my mail GET there???)

#2 Be on a game show. Since $10,000 Pyramid was canceled (moment of silence), I will settle for any game show. Ideally, I would be the first grownup to appear on Kids Week Jeopardy. Admit it - There's nothing better than tuning in to Jeopardy, and realizing it's Kids Week. I can buzz in circles around those little geeks.

#3 Travel to Atlanta, Georgia for the Gone With The Wind tour. I want a costumed guide. I want civil war reenactments. I want to learn how to make a green velvet dress out of curtains.

#4 Become a novelist, preferably a New York Times bestselling one. I have yet to work out the details of my plot but oh my gosh, you will not be able to put it down.

Anyway. Here's to having dreams.

you are awesome, I swear you have the best blog. I wish I could write like you and be as entertaining. I am going to read Gone With the Wind and join you on the tour, but I am sure your book will be WAY better than that piece of crap. This is a great post, I think you should make it a tag, but don't tag me cause it would be B O R I N G next to yours.

I love to read you blog! It makes me think, laugh, smile, & miss being around you! With the way you write, you could pick any topic and write a book and it would be on the best seller list! I am not kidding.

As far as game shows go - I have always wanted to be on "The Price is Right". Ahhhh, just think of it, someday you might hear:

DAWN FOUTZ - You're the next contestant on The Price is Right!

Ditto to all of those. You've REALLY got me thinking about the mail system!!

Dana Mania said...

Will you PLEASE publish a book, or newspaper column or just SOMETHING?! You really are an amazing writer! One of the things on my "list" would to be HALF as funny and entertaining as you! PLEASE keep it up!

Alison said...

I'll add my accolades to the list already posted... you are such a clever and entertaining writer. Oh, and I have a bucket list... being on a game show is on my list too!

Katie, I know what you mean about the post office---only my dream is to find out how they print those little M's on M&M's!
