Interactive Thursday: Before I Die

I would like to accomplish at least three of these five things, and they are not necessarily my top five things:

* Run a coatimundi ranch.
* Learn to play the bandoneon.
* Gain true fluency in Spanish and French...and Catalan, Japanese, Quichua, Gaelic...
* Spend a year in Greenland.
* Die peacefully at an old age in the bed of my tastefully appointment penthouse in l'Eixample Dreta of Barcelona, Poulenc playing in the background.

What's on your list? (This isn't a tagging blog or a meme post, by the way.)

Really? a year in Greenland?

My list includes, but is not limited to:
—Travel across Africa
—Learn French
—Learn to play my new banjo
—Pay off my student loans
—Learn to do at least one line dance really well

That should keep me busy for at least a few weeks.

Dave - Yes, at least a year.

Once you get those banjo licks down, I'd love to play my bandoneon with your band. Or perhaps we could write some French songs to perform in Cote d'Ivoire.

I had to google "bandoneon" because I didn't know what it was. Now that I know it's an accordion, hell yeah, let's get the band back together!

At 9:21 AM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Dave - What shall we call it? The Junk Boat Bandits? The Junktugs? The Frisco Orleans All Stars?

At 4:27 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Hmm, "The Junktugs" sounds a little dirty. I like it.

At 4:37 PM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Dave - If it ain't dirty, it ain't music in my book.

1. I'd like to be able to *go* to Spain and France.

2.I'd like to have sex again.

Ok, I'll stop there for fear the gods will think I'm too greedy.

Anyway, nice pic in the top hat I must say.

At 9:39 PM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Jason - Thanks. We should meet up in Paris or Madrid and have sex.

-sleep outside in a bed under the stars.
-chop down a redwood.
-pay off all my debts.
-own a little antique store.
-dig my own grave in a spot of my choosing.

At 5:41 PM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Gavin - Wouldn't you chop down that redwood to make a fire to cook some endangered species?

At 11:23 PM, Blogger Gavin Elster said...

Battered and fried Harp Seal? No I seriously want to chop down a redwood tree with just an axe.

At 11:42 PM, Blogger WAT said...

I just wanna be able to visit Europe period! Oh, and visit every Spanish-speaking country at least once! That would be so awesome! I already went to Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador!

At 5:47 AM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

WAT - Good choice.

inspired by your list:
*run a sanctuary ranch for cute animals (that people like to eat)
*learn to play the fiddle
*gain fluency in french and japanese
*spend a year at a retreat where no one speaks - vow of silence
*die peacefully when it is time and not a second before!

At 5:43 AM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Mouse - I am sure that the band Tugboat Dave and I start is going to need a fiddle player.
