I Must Confess: My Bucket List (And Fuck It List)

First of all, I Must Confess that I don't really have a Bucket List as such. I do, however, have a Fuck It List longer than Question Time. So, I'm slightly tweaking the confession to spill what's on my Fuck It List, and then a lame attempt at a Bucket List. I am not even remotely an adrenaline junkie, so therefore my long list of Fuck It's include:
  • Bungee Jumping
  • Sky Diving
  • Harbour Bridge Climb
  • Hot Air Balloon ride
  • Hang Gliding
I also have zero desire to;

  • Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower
  • Ditto The Empire State Building
  • Climb Mt. Everest
  • Go White Water Rafting
  • Go Scuba Diving
  • Go on any extreme rides at theme parks eg. Roller coaster etc

Fuck that.

You get the picture. I'm a big scardey cat, chicken shit wus. Therefore my actual Bucket List is extremely boring. It includes:

  • Getting married (check).
  • Having kids (check).
  • Getting that McMansion in Boganville Heights.
  • Seeing my boys grow up.
  • Becoming a Granny.
  • Finish writing the excruciatingly awful book I started writing years ago, which will require me living until I'm approximately 145 years old, at the slower than a snail's pace rate I'm going.
In addition to this, I wouldn't mind doing the following at some point:

  • Visiting Karen Carpenter's final resting place in California.
  • Visiting Prince Edward Island to see all the places associated with author Lucy Maud Montgomery of Anne Of Green Gables fame.
  • Visiting the UK to see all the places associated with Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters.
  • Visiting Europe, in particular I've always wanted to see Germany since I was a teenager learning German at school (which I now can't remember a word of beyond Guten Tag, but meh, I still want to go).
To do all of the above, I will also need to:
  • Win the Lottery.
Since I never take a ticket, the chances of this are extremely remote. Non-existent in fact. Therefore, the only thing left on my Bucket List is:


Have a cup of tea and a cakie (multiplied by a billion times). You know, just so I can have something else I can actually tick off.

What's on your bucket list? Or, alternatively, your Fuck It List?

  6. I love this Ness. Can we do the whole literary tour together? I'm a huge Anne fan (I'll never get over the fact that my middle name is Ann without an E - so unfair!)and I also love Jane Austen and the Brontes too. If it makes you feel any better, I'm a huge scaredy cat too - hence the lack of adventure on my list :) Thanks for linking up again Ness.

  8. Love this post Ness! Your fuck it list sounds a lot like mine - jumping out of a plane? No thanks, I quite like having my eyes in their sockets. Great post.

    1. Thanks Steph! Yep, the only way I'm jumping out of a plane, is if it's on fire and/or about to crash.

  11. OMG love it! We are so alike! My fuck it list is identical to yours and I would love to visit places like Marilyn Monroe's grave...but it will probably never happen because that would involve money and flying lol

    1. You just never know, you might win lotto or become rich and famous and someone might invent one of those 'beaming' devices off Star Trek, so flying will obselete. Yep, I totally see it happening.

  12. If you need someone to go with you to visit KC's resting place (and maybe other Carpenter-related places), let me know! :)

    1. We are so DOING IT, oneday!! There MUST be a convention oneday, and we'll beg, borrow or steal to get there!

  13. Completely agree with your fuck it list. I have actually done a few extreme roller coasters, in my youth, and I was terrified, and not in a good way. The state my heart is in now it would simply explode, not that I need an excuse not to do anything I don't want to :)

    The only important thing on my bucket list is to go home to Scotland. But also on the list is living on a boat (permanently), or a shack in the woods and getting the fuck away from civilisation altogether if at all humanly possible :) Tralalala...

    1. I've never been an adrenaline junkie. Even as child when my brother would spin me around on those roundabout ride thingys at the park, I'd howl. Hated it.

      Hope you do get your boat or shack in Scotland and some peace away from the World, but make sure there is internet connection, or we'd miss you! x0
