Five Things

George tagged a few of us for this current meme: Five Things.

Five things....

...big couple of words,
fIve

tH
ingS.

But, he didn't say Five WHAT-KIND-OF Things.
  • Five Things I'd talk to my mother about if she were alive
  • Five Things that I'd trade to make it as a writer
  • Five Things I'd start up if I were into startups...if educational startups paid the rent
  • Five Things I'd love to paint and no, not with Glidden
  • Five Things I'd undertake if I had infinite patience and big lottery winnings
A bit later in his post he did say: before pushing up daisies. I suppose. Like Ptelea, my thoughts change with the season and again with the year SO on this day, within my current state of mind, Five Things I'd like to do Before I Die are:

1. Bicycle, hike or rail through whatever country has cheap airfare at the time.

2. Retire and have enough healthy years to enjoy doing whatever it is that I do.

3. Live in a small house, on a small lot, drive a beater car and have just enough stuff to make living enjoyable...wait... that sounds familiar somehow.

4. Make a living off my avocation...whatever that may be.

5. Own a kitchen that doesn't date from 1948.

Simple, attainable...everything else is frosting.

These are all great (yet modest) wishes.

Snakebite said...

Oh boy. Better give me the rules.

The Old Bag said...

No rules -- write or not, serious or not, pass it along or not. This was Tim's response to the last one that came around -- he's obviously a Talking Heads fan.

Snakebite said...

I refer you to this link: http://lifebikin.blogspot.com/2006/12/tag-info.html It's my "hot five answered" post.

The Old Bag said...

Duuuude -- that tag was five things people don't know about you. THIS tag is five things you want to accomplish before you die.

Totally different.

Snakebite said...

Oh, well then.....I shall make a post regarding that - dude.

Jenny said...

Oh, Embrace your 1946 kitchen!

I have always been a dreamer
but I never have really had any dreams

my life is pretty good the way it is
which is good
as I may be too lazy to change things

I still have not cleaned my garage or my basement
