Bucket List 2016

While watching the Tournament of Roses parade, I wondered where it fell on my bucket list and was horrified to see that it wasn't there at all. Time for a revision.

In no particular order:
  1. See the Rose Parade floats in person
  2. Take an exercise class with Richard Simmons

  3. Ride a camel (not a location-specific goal)

  4. Sit in the booth with Doreen Simmons while she comments on a sumo basho for NHK
  5. 
Be a balloon wrangler in the Thanksgiving Day Parade

  6. Volunteer in the Bishop Museum archives

  7. Learn to tie knots (as added in 2015)
Some goals, like writing a book, are off the list now. I don't think it's going to happen unless I retire.  Meeting distant Irish relatives was a previous goal, but the Irish research is at a standstill.

I love that the list is smaller and all doable. OK maybe not sitting in the booth with Doreen, but I live in hope.

Your aspirations are so conventional.

My aspirations are conventional because I'm so darned fortunate and grateful for a good life. I try to enjoy even the unenjoyable.

Uh, you do realize I was being ironic? ;)

Oh. Yeah, guess not!
