101 Things....

As you remember as of late I had been feeling frustrated. So on a whim I had bought these two books, 101 Things To Do Before You Are 30 and 101 Things To Do Before You Die. You know to give me ideas or what not to complete, or at the minimum make me laugh. I can safely say I have completed at least a third of the book. Only two thirds to complete in the next two years :). I thought I would share a few of the tasks. They are fun and mostly easy ( I say mostly because I am not about to jump out of a place).

- Google Yourself: Now this actually hard for me to do, I have a cousin ( locally famous) that has the same name as me. Or vice versa. She is older than I am, so I guess I have the same name as her. I am not even sure that you can find me on Google. I am on page 33 of the search, if that.

Grow Something- Or in my case give a plant the hint of life and then mercilessly kill it. But my question on this one is , is this really a milestone on the way to 30? It probably is a skill I should acquire, huh? It shows responsibility and the ability to care for something. Maybe I should get a cactus.

Live Thru a Blind Date: Do I get points for repeatedly trying something?? I have lived thru more blind dates that I care to remind you all off. But in case you forgot, look,here , here,and here.

Travel Solo- As you know this is something I recently completed. Though it wasn’t what I thought it would be like. I can say with all certainty I have traveled solo. And actually I want to do it again. It was a great experience and it further taught me to be self reliant.

I also admit that some of the items listed are kind of lame:

Own a Cashmere Sweater: It’s the “adult” sweater. By wearing it am I more adult? Because the last time I wore my cashmere sweater, it was with a ripped pair of jeans, I am sure I looked like a slob not an adult.

Claim Your Grannie Panties: You are to revel in the fact that you own and wear these monstrous unmentionables. They say you are truly liberated when we embrace our grannie panties. Can’t we embrace something a little cuter, like boy shorts or hipsters. I mean at least grannie panties can double as an emergency parachute. But they do nothing for my ass.

But the best accomplishment that I have completed in this book is :

Create your own Sisterhood: Just because I don’t have blood sisters doesn’t mean I can’t have sisters at all. It means I can chose the ones I hold nearest and dearest.

Love Ya Guys!

feeling oh so 'male' at the moment... I looked at this post and saw blah blah blah PANTIES oh 'grannie' panties blah blah...


I did go back and re-read it Liz and it's a cool post, I'm curious how many of those things I completed before the big 3 'oh'. What's the problem with chinese food except it you can't really put ketchup on it?

I actually don't know the reasons my anti-chinese food feelings. I really don't care for it. Though I will eat it, but only like twice I year. And this is only chinese food. I love Thai, singaporean, japanese and so on.

Now I have to get the book too! or both lol. I'm sure you've probably completed way more of the things in them than me...

Granny panties lol. I can honestly say I do not own any of these...(I think I did when I was in my 20's ..which is ironic..but No More!) I agree--we should embrace that we say NO to granny panties..whether you're single or married.
