It occurs to me that this looks like a meme, but really it's just me trying to jumpstart a journal entry.
  • Things I've Never Done That I'm Proud of: smoked a cigarette, worn beer goggles, driven recklessly

  • Things I Wouldn't Do Even If You Paid Me: bungee-jump, eat snails, be unfaithful to my husband

  • Things I've Done But Wouldn't Do Again: given birth, lied about something important, approached an unfamiliar dog

  • Things I Would Do in a Heartbeat: play Euchre, help a friend in need, hide candy from the children

  • Things I Would Do Right Now If I Could Find the Motivation: edit photos, update webpages, exercise

  • Things I Might Do If You Paid Me: move, get a tattoo, the Hokey-Pokey

  • Things I Do All the Time That I Probably Shouldn't: swear, buy chocolate, drive faster than the speed limit
Nope. Didn't work.
  • Things That Don't Work on Me: tickling my feet, telling me I'll go to hell, reverse psychology

  • Things I Used to Think Were Cool: clogs, Rick Springfield, smart-mouthed replies

  • Things I've Learned the Hard Way: friendships aren't likely to weather betrayal but the ones that do are SO worth it; that sometimes the choice you make between your man and your cats isn't the one you thought it would be once; white clothing and I just really don't belong together

  • Things I Could Think of to Post About That Would Be Even Less Entertaining Than These Lists: rashes, cleaning the bathroom drain, my to-do list

  • Things That Will Leave You Wondering and Hoping For More:* the cop said "Do you thinks it's fun to offend the police?"; I knew exactly what would happen when I met her; there's not much dirt on me, that's chocolate, that is.
I give up.

What are beer goggles and who is Rick Springfield?

OHMIGOD you are so old! hahaahaah! just kidding, you know I love you. :) Rick Springfield was a pop star of the early 80s. He had a hit with "Jesse's Girl" and I think he did acting as well, but the memories are mercifully blurred if so. :D

beer goggles are what you are wearing when you're drunk and think someone looks FINE when in cold-sober reality you wouldn't go near them :)

So it's essentially "one bag ugly, two bag ugly, coyote", I get it. Been there, drank that.

Very interesting !

So can this be stolen as a brand-new meme, credited to you, oh creative one?

Random responses --
I love the "beer goggles" comment. I presume that means going home with someone you wake up next to and go "AAAAAHHHHH!"
I think bungee jumping might be fun to try just once. But I like thrills.
Is there no amount of money which would buy one night with you, a la the Robert Redford / Demi Moore movie Indecent Proposal?
I can SO relate to the lack of motivation section. For me it has been work, sleep, see a few people, sleep, work. Nothing useful getting done on housework, scrapbooking, quilting, beading, or any number of crafty hobbies for which I have expensive equipment lying around.
What would you get if you got a tattoo?

Re: Very interesting !

Nope, no money :) I've been cheated on, and would NEVER do it to someone else.

a curled multi-colored lizard...on my hip. But I'm a huge baby, so it'll never happen. :)


No no no you will not get a tattoo if I pay you, I bet you are all talk and no action *looks for change in pockets* lol.

*grins* you're right. I am. :D

How much for the Hokey Pokey?


:D :D :D For you? I'll discount! :D


You've never smoked even ONE cigarette? In your WHOLE LIFE?? Wow. I'm impressed! :) Tattoo? Even in my hipster days, I ruled that out because a) I hate needles, and b) I won't even like the same clothes 3 months from could I possibly pick a tattoo that I'd like for DECADES?! :) (But YOUR design sounds cool!)

Nope, not even one. To be honest, I don't understand how ANYONE can. *bleah*

I'm a big baby when it comes to needles and pain, too, which is the biggest reason why I've never gotten a tattoo. Even if I like the idea. And mine would be VERY small, and very discreet. :)


Pavlov needs a new dog...I just don't learn. That "I hate needles" comment? That was me, dorkified. ~Marilyn

You could always open an LJ just for commenting on mine :) You wouldn't be the first to do it!

Great non-meme, I might steal that and do it myself when I get a moment if that's okay :)

You're going to make a meme out of my non-meme?!

well, okay :D

Lethargic? Lizardek?

Oh nooo--- I bet it's not lethargy-- I bet it's the house all to yourself and having that much freedom can be almost paralyzing sometimes-- so many things to do, so many choices it can be overwhelming.

I really liked this post and learned still more about you-- sounds like you need to put on some music, curl up on the couch with the kitties with a yummy book.

Be easy on yourself . . . ~bluepoppy

Re: Lethargic? Lizardek?

OH! I so wish I HAD some kitties to curl up with. You are right, I did feel paralyzed last night be the idea that I didn't really have anything SPECIFIC to work on. :) But I read a book and a half so that's pretty good!

I can relate with not giving birth again "ouch"

I know! I did it twice! Go me! :D Thank goodness Karin was a girl so I didn't have to contemplate a 3rd time :P

I think this is a meme, and I may have to steal it some time when I need to jumpstart a post.

It's only a meme if it spreads. So far only one person has done it. :D

Things I've Learned the Hard Way: friendships aren't likely to weather betrayal but the ones that do are SO worth it;

That is so true. Friendships are the hardest lessons to learn in life, as no two people are the same.

I whole-heartedly agree with your "Things I wish I could do if I had the motivation".
