Kristian posted her Fictional Bucket List #1 and wanted to know what others’ lists would be. This sounded interesting so, obviously, I had to think about it. I am going about it a little different in that not everything on my list is fictional, but it is unobtainable (but still holds some meaning to me).
Here is my fictional bucket list…
Travel with The Doctor. I blame Dr. Who for many things in my life. My first crush at eight years old was Tom Baker, then summer came and reruns of the Pertwee years brought conflict…Eccleston was fantastic and then came Capaldi. Um…yeah, let’s just leave it there.
Travel through history with the Voyagers!
Help the team in Poltergeist: The Legacy. I love the paranormal and had a huge crush on Derek de Lint (second from the left if you are unfamiliar with the show).
Be a crew member on Seaquest: DSV. Great show, great meaning. Jonathan’s suicide hit me really hard when I heard the news because we were a year apart and I loved his work. He hung himself because he didn’t feel like he was good enough.
Hang out with the Addams Family. I used to really wish they were my family instead of my own…lol.
Hang out with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. I LOVE the Muppets, and they just seem to be the coolest group of people to hang out with.
Travel to the depths of the oceans. I love deep sea creatures and sadly, we know more of the night sky than we do the oceans (and we only know about 10% of the night sky).
Spend the day with Sir Elton John. I first saw Elton on the Muppets and fell in love with his music, but watching him at Ryan White’s funeral on TV made me love him even more.
Have an audience with the Pope. Now this sounds strange coming from someone who is not religious, but I respect all religions and I would really like to know why they tell people to be Christ-like considering he threw out the profit mongers and said not to judge others, yet they judge their own members everyday and do not denounce inequities. We have enormous profits because companies use their workers by not paying them a fair wage (or profit sharing).
Spend the day with Dolly Levi. I’m not an outgoing person, but it would be really fun to pretend I was.
If you are unfamiliar with Mad Libs, they are short stories with words missing that you, the reader, fill in based on the noted requirement (i.e. noun, name, verb, color, etc.). Step 1 is to read the list of blanks for the mad lib and write down the words you select for that item (i.e. Name 1 = Bill, nouns = stars, etc.).
There are two ways to participate in this new daily adventure:
Copy the story and make a post of your own with the missing pieces filled in
Post your responses in the comments below
List of Blanks for this Mad Lib
Noun x 3
Verb x 3
Food x 2
This one’s short but may end up hilarious…
Take Me Out To The Ballgame
Take me out to the noun
Take me out to the noun
Buy me some food and food
I don’t care if I never get back

It’s one, two, three plural verb you’re out
At the old noun
This week I created a new little game based on something I used to love doing in a group. One person starts a story then another has to pick up the story and add to it, then hand it off to another person, etc. until the story is complete. This would/could be extremely fun in a blogging situation since we all have different approaches. So, I am going to put this out there and hope you guys want to play along. Previous games are still out there, but once they are finished, I will compile the story and list of authors so everyone can enjoy.
Copy the story below as it appears when you receive it (and the rules please)
Add somehow to the story in which ever style and length you choose
Tag only 1 person
If you choose to not participate or finish the story, please comment/tag this post so that I know.
The Sweet Shop
Emily and Sara always wanted a little sweet shop off the beaten path where only locals would be able to find them. It wasn’t that they didn’t like all the tourists that came to their city, they did, it was just that they didn’t want everyone to know that …
