The first time I read that I thought you said you would like to "tick a dingo dog".  :laugh:  :laugh:

I couldn't figure out what you were talking about Kerry! Maybe I need some glasses.... or some medication!  :-\

Hmmm, might be something to do with it being 2am there in Indianapolis at the moment, David, and you're not in bed!   :o

You're sleep deprived! Go to bed LOL!   :-*   ;)   :)

David, before you hit the hay tonight, scoot on over to my new thread "Pet Fashion Week in NY" in BetterMost Current Events. There are lots of cute doggie pics to be seen. They're the kinda dogs you can safely pat without the risk of losing your hand - unlike a dingo!  :o   ;)   :D

Oh, I'm not going to bed yet Kerry! I'm a nightowl.  :)

But I do have to get up very early in the am. But we only live once, right?  ;)

Okay, I'll go check out the dogs now!  :D

Ooh ....... Ooh ...... I found the moonlight scene ... aaaaarh so beautiful!



Susie, thanks, somehow I had never heard of this movie.  I IMDb'd it to see if that was really Rosanna Arquette (it was), and found the movie's very BBMesque tagline: "Between what you know and what you wish, lies the secret of... [The Big Blue]."

I only clicked one choice that nobody else clicked. 

Here are about 2/3 of my picks:
Travel from coast to coast across the USA. (Thanks to Eric and Pete's inspriation.)
Go to the Cannes Film Festival.   (Or even more, Toronto and Venice.)
Forgive yourself.  (Put that at the top, some days.)
Learn to juggle.
See a killer whale in the wild.  (They actually live around here, and I have yet to see one.)
Shoot a short film.
Get a tattoo.
Be a contestant on a game show.  (Got to do that in Alberta!)
Become a vegetarian.  (I wish I could want to be one.  I fall off that wagon all the time.)
Become carbon neutral.
Live overseas.  (For a while, in France.)
Design your own cocktail.  (Why did I never think of this before?  It would be a variant of a Cape Cawduh.

Here are the things I've done already:
Plant a tree.
Do something you fear.
Make love in a tent in Alberta.  (But not in Alberta.)  :)
Learn to tango.
Smell snow.
Misplace your blue parka in Texas.  (Well, I misplaced my white car in Texas, if that counts.)
Watch a lunar eclipse.   
Have your portrait painted.  (By more than one child.)
Participate in a rodeo.    (I watched it enthralled.)
Make your own wine.    (Mmm, the two best were pea pod and mulberry.)
Go to the opening night of the ballet.     (I have been to opening nights, and I have been to the ballet, but maybe not both.)
Buy a cowboy hat in Wyoming.  (While, in the Wrangler store in Cheyenne, I actively decided to not buy a hat.)
Be able to take compliments.  (Sometimes.)
Shower under a waterfall.   
Trace your family tree.  (At least a little.)
Make a wish as you throw a coin into Rome’s Trevi fountain.
Write a song.
Read a book in one sitting.
Milk a cow.
Learn CPR.     (Remember CPR is another story.)
Forgive yourself.  (For some things.  I really have.)
Go white water rafting.
Talk to a stranger on the bus.
Yodel on a Swiss mountain.
Create a cult website.  (Hey, we all are, together.)
Pick wildflowers in an alpine meadow.
Walk in a rain forest.
Memorise a poem.   
Become someone’s nemesis and then kiss and make up. 
Visit the Mona Lisa and smile at her.
Wind surf.
Own original works of art.   
Ride an elephant.
Grow your own vegetables.

My "No effin way, not on your life" list:
Run a marathon.
Bungee jump.
Sky dive.
Run with the bulls in Pamplona.  (Sensing a theme?)  :)
Spend the night in a haunted house.
Ride a motorbike on the highway.
Gallop a horse on a deserted beach.
Dive with sharks.

Gee, you've done a lot already, Clarissa!  :D

I'm with you re your ""No effin way, not on your life" list! Except, that is, for galloping a horse on a deserted beach. I have already galloped a horse and it was sooo exhilarating! However, it was not on a deserted beach, which I think would be sooo cool!  Especially on a stormy day! Yee-Haw! :D

Kerry, great poll!

I realize how fortunate I am:  I've done more than 15 things on that list already.  Some just since BBM, like buying cowboy boots in Texas (Austin), and whitewater rafting (Alberta).

I have actually swum with dolphins!  In Bermuda a few years ago.  There's an organization called "DolphinQuest" and they raise money by offering tourists time with the dolphins.  It was a blast!  They feel like watermelons.  We were taught some hand signals, and got them to do some amazing tricks.  Of course, there was the requisite cheesy photo kissing the dolphin.  No, I won't post that one.  I felt like a whale whilst wearing the wetsuit.

Oh, and I have designed my own cocktail:  the Cosmo-Paul-itan.  PM me if you'd like the recipe!

I love the new footer on your posts, David!  :D

Is it a coyote or a wolf? It's stunning!  :D
