Me me me me me me me me or the 8 thing meme

Soooo, Candy tagged me for a meme. Eight things to do before you die, or a bucket list. Now, I made one of these back in high school for a drama club project (because we were all sooo dramatic) and I've actually crossed four things off of it. So do I use that and show the four that are done or do eight new ones? Who runs these things? Who do I ask? Someone appoint a Queen of the Blogosphere and get me an audience with her. In the meantime, I'll make it up as I go.

My wide eyed high school senior, the whole world is open to possibilities list:

1. Go to college. Check.

2. Go to law school. Check.

3. Practice law. Kinda check.

4. Become a judge. Pshht. Ain't likely.

5. Live in NYC. Not sure how that fit in with the others, but not happening now.

6. Visit England. Check.

7. Live in England. Working on that.

8. Own a Mercedes. Check. (yes, I was a shallow high schooler. and yes, said mercedes was a 1963 boat that barely ran. your point??)

My cynical, weary, world wizened, grumpy old woman list:

1. Not commit murder. So far, so good.

2. Raise good kids. 3 out of 4 ain't bad. Jury's still out on the 5 year old.

3. Learn to cook. Haven't yet. Probably should soon, kid is skinny.

4. Go back to practicing law. Honestly, this probably won't happen. I've just been away too long.

5. Live in England. Seriously, working on it. Ease up.

6. Own a small cafe/coffee shop. This one's possible.

7. Be peaceful and present. This is the hardest and also the one I want the most.

8. Be loving. I'm trying. I really am.

So now I'm supposed to tag. Bwaaaahaahaa! I'm giddy with the power of it. I'm coming for you! (In no particular order)

I picked each of these bloggers because I would truly like to know what their eight goals are. Each of them are very interesting and I will pout and cry like a little baby if they don't play with me. Then I'll get over it and we'll make out.

You're lucky. I'd kick your ass if you didn't have a pin up in your header image.

I'll have to contemplate it while I'm *supposed* to be working so I can write it later. =)

I YUV your adult goals, especially #1.

And, on some level, I'm glad life is taking you away from the law. No reason, really. I just feel better things are out there for you.

What with me being a psychic and all.

I've come over to represent England here, seeing as I'm from there and live there and spend as much time as I can in Philly
Like you lists.
