25 Before I’m 75 *revision*

em..gee!! I just stumbled upon this ridiculously rad life list *makes my meager list look silly*

Can I just steal hers and start over? I suppose I could have put much more thought and imagination into mine. Ride a camel…hells yeah…in Egypt…even better…watch the sunset at the pyramids…yes please…why didn’t I think of these?? I knew these things were inside my brain but seeing Mighty Girl Maggie’s list has dug them out of the graveyard my brain filed them under.

4…take my kid to a presidential inauguration *hopefully Obama will be re-elected in 2012*
