My cousin Pete is way cool. And I'm not just saying that because he reads my blog :-) Although that does make him EVEN cooler...
Pete was telling me about an interview he heard with geek icon author Neil Gaiman. Apparently, Neil Gaiman doesn't have goals, or a life plan... he just has 'To Do' List. Shit that he just wants to get done. Whether that be writing a book or learning how to belly dance. (I'm not saying Neil Gaiman wants to learn how to belly dance. That's just an example. Neil Gaiman can probably ALREADY belly dance like a champ)
I have been thinking about this. Thinking about all the things I wanna do. So here is my Cousin Pete, Neil Gaiman To Do List inspired:
'I Wanna List'
1) I Wanna Start a Choir
Really, I just wanna BE IN a choir, but I can't seem to find a cool fun choir that sings awesome songs and has nothing to do with God (Not that there's anything wrong with that... just not for me). I was reading Frankie magazine and there was this hipster couple who, like live in a wharehouse, make thier own shoes and are in a choir that sings Kate Bush songs. I wanna be in THAT choir!
So, who knows how to go about starting a choir? Who wants to be in a choir? Have I said choir too many times? CHOIR!
2) I Wanna Be in a Flash Mob
I know they are like, so four years ago, but I don't care. I wanna dance in a large group in a public place and make people smile.
Maybe I should organise a BLOGGER Flashmob... That would be cool.
Oh, and did I mention I totally can't dance, so someone else would have to be in charge of the choregraphy and teaching and stuff. Unless it's the Robot, Then I AM ALL OVER THAT.
3) I Wanna Read a Book Out Loud
Ok, so my husband thinks this is weird, but I want to read a book out loud to someone. Not like a performance in front of a crowd, just to a person. Maybe like an old person, or a blind person. I could volunteer. Do people do that in real life, or just in movies. Or I could read to someone who is just lazy and doesn't want to read a book themsleves. Like a live recorded book... is that a thing? Should I make it a thing? It has to be a book I like, or want to read though. No Twilight or 50 Shades or any such nonsense. You can read that shit TO YORSELF.
OK, so that just three things to start out with on my I WANNA list. More to come.....
What would be on your I Wanna List?
