"Anything you want, dear, is fine, fine, fine, fine, fine."

Pike Place, Seattle, WA, 08-Oct-06

"If you want a good joke,
why split? You'll go broke
right here."

We managed to catch the top half of a list devoted to things that should be done before one turns thirty, if one happens to be a self-described "tough guy" with a penchant for extreme sports, arcade games and, er, facials (see "mind-blowing experience" No.12).

PF wondered why the show wasn't airing on Spike, but I was wondering why, if I were to make a grand to-do list of my own, it would consist mainly of acquiring various material goods. (Also, at this point, it would have to be titled 40 Before 40.) From getting a little white MacBook to owning a house, the list would basically be the written equivalent of a shopping cart. Even the goal of "having kids" employs a verb that implies possession. Bah! My priorities are clearly in need of sorting out.

Anyone willing to rehabilitate a material girl only recently coming out of denial?

wanna make our own top 30 list?

I'm intimidated! I'm worried that I'd set totally unrealistic goals, then get totally crushed when I don't attain them.

Maybe I should just make a short list.

What would you like to do?

Yes! I like your style.
