Things I want to do before I turn 40 in January

1. Take out the trash (I have a problem with procrastinating).

2. Grow a Chia Pet (I've never done this! My mother is mortified at the very thought; she thinks they're tacky. I think they can be tacky AND fun at the same time. Yet, in my almost-40 years on this planet, I still haven't gotten around to growing one. This could prove to be a challenge, considering how much plants hate me.)

3. Figure out how to make a Wordle for the Jannaverse. (It never works whenever I try). I hear it probably has something to do with the fact that I have a blogspot blog instead of a format where all the archived text is easily accessible and grabbable.

4. Try Kentucky Grilled Chicken and blog about it. The way their prices are these days, though, I may need to mortgage my property first.

5. Lose one pound for every time Paris Hilton has ever said something is "hot".

6. Figure out where I left my Tears For Fears CD, and listen to Mad World about a thousand times.

7. Get bifocals. (Seriously, I need them).

8. Make that Wild Sauce recipe I blogged about over at Jantrails.

9. Find inner peace and joy and contentment, even if this means living alone in a cave somewhere on an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

LOL...I can't imagine how much garbage you will have LOL. Love No 5 and Mad World is one of my favorites also :)

My sister loved Chia Pets for some reason. I always think of her when I see them.

Maybe I'll buy you one for Christmas.

Oy! I take the trash out every other day, it seems. #5 would work; I need to lose a coupla stones worth. #7-had them when I was a kid( and trifocals, at one point )! And the KFC grilled chicken does look good!

I sent you a Wordle from your site.

You need to come up and see mee in 3 or 4 weeks for some fresh veggies..super duper sweet corn, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, tomatos, watermalon and cataloupe..my treat dammit! :) if you ever want my cell # let me know :)

Jamie said...

Well the other things on the list may be difficult, but number 9 is easy. It's right here somewhere, I think, I know I spotted it just yesterday ... move a few things, it's bound to turn up ........

Angela said...

Oh that hot sauce looks awesome!

metalmom said...

Paris doesn't say "hot" anymore. Her new thing is "huge". Lose a pound for every "hot" and you'll end up being "huge"

Thom: I may have enough garbage to start my own junkyard. Would anyone like to buy some empty water jugs and used aluminum foil?

Lynda: I'm so glad I'm not the only one who likes them!

GoingLikeSixty: Thank you... I'm perusing it now....

FallWhispers: I haven't forgotten you! :) The cantaloupe sounds good. :)

Jamie: It might be hidden behind my sofa, but I'm afraid to look.

Angela: I loved Taco Bell's Wild Sauce soooo much. A little part of me died when they stopped serving it. :) Here's hoping the new recipe comes close.

Metalmom: Really? Ok... Clearly I am not up to date on my current Parisology. :) Thanks for the update! That was huge! (see, it doesn't sound nearly as cool when I say it...)

Janna said...

Subtorp77: My mom suggests there's a possibility I may need trifocals as well. If I can ever afford the eye test (and the glasses), I'll find out. (And I'll be sure to blog about it!)

subtorp77 said...

Janna, trifocals suck! I should know....i was born with a type of eye muscle impairment. I didn't have the ability to focus correctly. Took 8 years to correct it. But I still have my old BC Navy binoculars( see my avatar, closely HA! )

I can report that KGC is quite tasty.

If you can't find your CD, you can download from iTunes pretty cheaply.

Janna said...

Subtorp: I got my bifocals today! I'm going to blog about it pretty soon. I got the variable lenses. (Tried both kinds, liked those best) The doctor says that the gray area in between has sort of a "trifocal effect." Lovely! I'm strangely excited about this...

Travis: I still haven't tried KGC. I wish I had an internet connection good enough to download iTunes. Alas. I am still the queen of dial-up.

subtorp77 said...

JAnna, huzzah! I think. Aren't the variable lens the ones without the lines? I had those monocular style ones, at first. Then the traditoinal lined ones. Hey, as long as you can see better, right?
