And before I get caught in that tangent, I'd like to join the Bucket List brigade and contribute my thoughts.
I'm going to start with 25, just like Sarah did, and some of these things are very close to being realized :)
Before I kick the bucket, I'd like to...
2. visit Paris, Spain, Greece and Mexico.
4. have kids.
5. write a book.
7. live debt-free.
8. take Salsa lessons with Chris.
10. be a part of a real mystery theatre.
11. participate in a read-aloud events for children.
12. host a movie-marathon night where we project films on a sheet on the back of my house.
13. own an outdoor kitchen.
14. learn to play the guitar well.
15. write a hit song.
16. read Orthodoxy and finish The Everlasting Man.
17. buy a paddle boat.
19. cook a gourmet meal--preferably a French one.
20. weigh what my license says I weigh.
22. finally figure out that Proverbs 31 Woman thing.
23. own a really stunning pair of pink (or yellow!), snakeskin, high heels.
24. have the ability to run an entire mile without stopping.
25. meet my grandchildren.
