The Anti-Bucket List

Now, we all know what a Bucket List is, don't we children? Good then. I'll be doing one of those shortly, but this here is the anti-bucket list... The list of things I will never, NEVER do (or do again, as the case may be)!

BTW, I did see this idea on someone else's blog, but forget who and can't find them in my reader. If you are the party concerned, good for you! And please feel free to comment and claim credit!

Bungee Jump - not only do I have a silly fear of being up very high, but I also have a silly fear of hurtling toward the earth at a fantastic rate of knots, and crashing into said earth and becoming a mere stain on the ground. And don't bother saying I could do it over water, my principle stands.

Jump out of a perfectly good airplane - of course, if it's crashing, all bets are off, you'll have to fight me for the parachute.

Wake up in someone's house, and have no idea how I got there - I can neither confirm nor deny that this may have happened in the past. I can also neither confirm nor deny margaritas may have been involved.

Live a self-centred life - I may have been guilty of this in the past, but it's pretty much the first thing parenthood slaps out of you, and thank God for that.

Act against my moral compass - I will never (again) do what I know to be wrong, or do something that makes me feel... less.

Gee... I'm kinda running out of things...

ummmm.. oh got one! oh, no... that could happen...

Give up - on my loved ones, on my marriage, on my principles or on a fight I've picked because I'm feeling narky and need to vent!!

Stop learning.

Actually, when I started this list, I thought it would be a doddle, I am one of those people that have very clear ideas on what I do and don't like, therefore this should be easy! Not so, it turns out, there's a lot of things I am prepared to leave myself open for, and really will never say never!

I'd love to hear what you swear you will, or will never do...



  1. Those are all good ones.. hmmm I will never look at a person and make ajudgement based on their dress and looks, I would not wnat it done to me adn trust me when I say mornign is not a pretty thing here lol.. If anyone saw me thne i would have NO followers roflmbo

  2. I'd never date a married man again...of course I didn't know he was married at the time and I am married now so there is about nill likelihood that I'd be in the dating arena again.

  3. I did all sorts of things before I had children that horrify me now - like bungee jumping and sky diving. Now I wouldn't go near anything that extreme. Motherhood has made me extremely cautious, which is probably a good thing.

  4. Love your list.. I will never just give up on anything worthwhile again. I have learned to fight for what I think is worthwhile!!!!!

  5. I was tagged to do this list and then decided not to because well, I like to try most things!!!Admittedly I did start trying to do it, but I had nothing... well done for getting one done!!

  6. Isn't it funny how it's so much easier to write a list of things we do want to achieve, rather than things we never want to do? Interesting!

  7. I have just spent half an hour trying to find a photo to show you...the husband has misplaced it.

    Dumb ass 19 year old bungee jumping...with a smile on her face.

    Stupid drunk idiot.

    Just the thought of it makes me want to curl into a ball and hide under the bed.

  8. Great antibucket list...I also will never bungee jump or sky dive!

  9. Bungee jumping is awesome! So is skydiving. Maybe just try it once for shits and giggles ;)

    I will never waste a glass of wine and I will this is hard.

  10. Quit listening to others! I really have very little original to say but I love being a sounding board with a valid opinion. And I loved reading this, by the way.

  11. Love your list :) Agree totally, esp with bungee jumping and skydiving.
