Yes!!! Count me in, mah partner in Guilt Appeasment!
Yeah! *links little finger with VL in binding joint CEO ceremony* Our Foundation will totally rock. We'll have adverts on telly that sadly ask for two pounds a month, and we'll help build wells and stuff!
Beautifully put. Beautifully.
Thankth. Really, it's all I want.
Suddenly become funny
Suddenly??? Become???///111 Start that sentence again, young lady.
1) Oh god yes. That is my number one too. that's the exact thing.
5) Live in New York
6) Live in a big wooden cabin by a beautiful lake in Canada, surrounded by redwoods and pines.
25) Go back to uni and study something just for fun. Like creative writing or film.
26) Teach writing classes at all the best London and New York universites.
27) While there have torrid affairs with several male students.
40) Buy a cinema and redecorate it vintage stylee, with red velvet and beatiful balconies etc.
These are all scarily similar to things I want- except that I'd want a cinema that I could live above.
if we pooled resources
Let's see...resources... Well, I have that old death ray knocking about the attic. That, and my fabulous charm, wealth, charisma, wit, good looks, killer body- you name it, I've got it.

Of course all of these things are invisible, but I still think they'd make a valuable contribution to the team.
Hello my darling it's me again. Where are you?

It could get funnier if we keep doing it.

I like this subject ....:D

I seem to have done quite a few of the things on people's lists :shock:
but then again I am very old and accordingly to some, led a quite extraordinary life thus far :twisted:
this is what I'd like to do, still, or again ....probably not 50 but let's see....
nothing exciting :D

1. get this frickin' house renovation/decorating finished ....what the hell is up with so called 'tradesmen ' ....and why are good electricians/plumbers/decorators like hens teeth .....I have cash you bastards ....where are you!!!???
BTW one of my 'things ' was to be build my own house but this lot has been such a nightmare it's put me off for life!

2. go back to australia for a long visit, just for old times, to see if it's how I remember (this is actually on my what I want to do for my 50th birthday list ,which, depressingly, is not that far away)

3.once my daughter finishes school etc ...return to ireland to live out my days ....preferably on a farm/smallholding or even a wee cottage with a field I can borrow!

4. finally achieve my ambition on said farm etc to run a couple of mares and breed the occasional foal for racing and/or showing.

5 Have a dog or two and some cats again ....probably on said 'farm', sadly my current lifestyle etc. precludes me from all but the most self sufficent pets, and I refuse to have one unless I was able to devote time to properly care for it.

6 find a decent post grad. course and get a good qualification ..hopefully one that would lead on to me roaming the groves of academe for as long as I felt like it. Preferably studying something wacky like exobiology and being paid for it!

7 do at least 2 or 3 more road trips around the USA/Canada ...everyone should drive from NYC to niagara falls then across canada to montreal at least once! :D

8 be in a postion to put on/design my own music festival ....and have all my favourite bands on the bill and to be totally in charge of the ticketing ..(I'm sorry you suck/ I don't like you ..you're not getting in! )

9 See the Kids in the Hall back on the road again(apparently it's about to happen) ..only this time they play some dates in europe/uk

10 be able to get on a plane and go somewhere without being in a constant state of terror and hating every minute of the journey/ feeling dreadfully ill/wretched etc

11 learn to play the piano/ read music properly ....and stick with learning it and follow it through ..not get fed up and give up ..again!

12 be able to sleep properly

13 see the Gents go back to their roots and do wee Canal Cafe style shows with all new characters

14 stop being so intolerant and impatient .....I really need to learn to chill!
bit late in the day for that I know !

15 Meet Chris Meloni, Lee Tergesen , Dean Winters and the rest of the Oz gang ...go out with them, and get utterly hammered and let them ...er ... :twisted:

16 Party with Franz Ferdinand (I am still waiting, I was promised
....I'll let you know the outcome mid july ;) )

17 make people realise just how lucky they are ...and not take anyone for granted, 'cos people can leave us in the blink of an eye and "if only" is the saddest phrase in exsistance .

18 write my autobiography ...trouble is, noone would believe it! :P

19 See our Sovie win another Group 1 just please ....no Coldplay/ James C*nt over the race highlights, again , *puke*

20 See my daughter all grown up and independent ..happy and healthy and enjoying her life.

21 Go to a United match with Neil Hannon

22 Have enough time etc to sneak across the border into Russia when we go to Poland in the summer and have the dosh to detour into berlin on the way back for the World cup final

23 See my sister turned into an international superstar!

That's me for now ..... :)

I couldn't poss do a list as it would mainly consist of people I want to be with. However, a few of LFF's would be on mine esp:
Laura Folds Five wrote: 2) Suddenly become funny and write/co-write a sitcom - one of those ones that is loved passionately by only a few people, but that most people either hate or don't even notice.

3) Earn enough money from writing that I don't have to have a day job.

9) Learn how to do eyeshadow properly. (for f*cks sake.)

17) Play with baby tigers.

18 ) Cuddle a full grown lion and lay my head on his big warm breathing in and out tummy. Aw.

20) Have pink hair.

39) Be in a Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright film, but only in the background.
Or bright red hair (but I'm too pale.)

Or any film of comedian's I love.
I've got M.E. I'm really tired!!

I have one to add to the list! Plus I've discovered I can actually cross one off! Result!

25. Wade through a zombie apocalypse, and then rebuild society with lots of...doing stuff. With guys who have gigantic moustaches.

That's not the one I can cross off, BTW. Just FYI.

Or IS IT???!1111

No, it really isn't.

I can't possibly think of 50 things! But I'd like to live long enough to be able to have a holiday into space. Do you think they'll ever do that in my lifetime?
And I'll stay here till the trail's cold and return again with my meaty gold
You want it! You can't get enough of Hilary Briss and his special stuff...
