Bucket List

It seems as if everyone is doing it these days.  Perhaps that’s because a lot of my friends are right around my age and this is the age where we start thinking about things that we’d really like to do before we “kick the bucket.”  The following list is a living document.  I’m sure as my days go by, I’ll want to add things to this list.  Especially if I discover something really random and exciting!

Anyway, without further adieu, here is (the beginning of) my list:

  1. Spend a week in the Peruvian jungle.
  2. Go to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day and do as the Irish do.
