#GBE2: Never

GBE2's blog topic this week is "Never." Here's my top ten list of things I would NEVER do.

1.)   SCUBA dive

In high school, I took a SCUBA diving class. When Mr. Lundt mentioned the risks,  I dropped the class.

2.) Become a US president
I know--powdered wig--humor me!

History has shown that most US presidents leave office with gray hair. I'm already working hard enough to cover the gray I have and don't need more.

3.) Sky dive

If I wet my pants on the roller coaster, I don't think people would appreciate yellow rain from the sky. Which brings me to the next one.

4.) Roller Coasters

5.) Eat bugs and crap

I'm not into eating gross stuff, and it's probably not kosher anyway. Not that I keep kosher, but if faced with eating bugs, it would be a good time to start.

6.) Be on Survivor

Life has taught me that I'd be the first voted off the island, so I think I'll skip the show. 

7.) Pierce a tongue

8.) Wear a bikini

Do I have to explain this one?

9.) Convert

Sorry dear friends. I know you pray for me, but I'm strong in my Judaism and if that means burning in hell, let's hope someone supplies sunblock in the afterlife.

10.)  Get Published

Psych! Although it feels hopeless at times, I'm going to do it. I decided that even though Bompsy has been around the block more times than Lindsay Lohan (or should I now say Miley Cyrus?), it's a great novel and deserves a home.

#GBE2: Bucket List

GBE2's topic for the week is "Bucket List," which means things you want to do before you "kick the bucket." My desires are short but mine.

(1) I want to publish a novel. Although my third manuscript is strong, it's been rejected by a few–okay a lot–of agents, but that's their mistake. I mean, who wouldn't want to be engrossed in a story about a teenager running from mob dudes?

My fifth book is also strong, but I have yet to quit polishing it and send it out. It's difficult for an author to drop her hands from the keyboard and say, "This is as good as it's gonna get." Plus, after meeting Linda Sue Park, I'm determined to make every detail and object in the novel count–including the blue bucket. I'm just not there yet; but when I am, hopefully the world will enjoy meeting Knob.

(2) I want to travel to New Zealand and visit Rhonder. I've never been to NZ, Australia, Fiji Islands, or anywhere else in that corner of the world. Unfortunately, we are college poor as we work to educate our young. But one day, I will sell my award winning novel and hop on a plane across the world. Please God, let it not be a Delta flight!

As far as bucket lists go, is there such a thing as an anti-bucket list, aka - things I DON'T want to do? We can call this the mop list since mops take care of what falls out of the bucket... and it's usually a mess to clean up.

I don't want to sky dive. Rhonder did, and it almost killed her.

I don't roller coaster or thrill ride. I even wet my pants on the little log flume at Six Flags.

I have no desire to visit the moon, the bottom of the ocean, or war torn countries.

Call me no fun, but I'm a gal who likes her feet on the ground. Now socially, I have no filter and have been prone to say what comes out of my mouth! If that doesn't make sense, you don't know me. ;-)
