Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?

For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Bucket List

I was sitting up late or early depending on how you look at it. All I know is that I was in bed and the clock was in the AM hours and the numbers were very small. Now as we all know when you get to this witching hour the mind starts to think funny things. Some odd and never at all possible and others a bit more salacious (damn you Cinemax.) As I lay there listening to the many ohh's and ahh's of the undulating half naked bodies carefully blocking out the naughty bits just hoping one of the actresses slip a little to the left and the editor didn't catch it in post production. Trying to get some sleep but no real end in sight. I figure out two things. First is that I have made a serious error in choosing a career. I NEVER saw the table for soft core porn model at my high school career fair. Not that with my brilliant physique I would have ever been chosen but it sure would have been fun going through the tryouts. If there was one I am certain they would have been out of pamphlets within the first 30 seconds and the presenter would have been in far greater demand than Mr. Cookman the shop teacher/drivers ed instructor speaking about a path in the auto repair industry.

Second thing, completely unrelated is that there are a wide variety of events out there geared at getting peoples rocks off in a entirely different way than what Cinemax is currently presenting. Most of these are completely insane but so damn cool! Now try to follow me on my thought process and I swear I'm going somewhere with this.

As I continued to flip though the channels as my eyelids got heavier I ran across the movie "Bucket List" with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. A pretty solid "drama-dy" (part drama part comedy) about a couple of men faced with death due to different types of cancer who decide to make a wish list of all the things they wanted to ever do in life if they had all the money in the world. Just so happened the character played by Nicholson was a multimillionaire complete with private jets and top notch healthcare and he finds a kindred spirit in Freeman's character. So off they go on this journey to do all the things on their "bucket lists." With all that said I really should have found a job writing Cliffs Notes.

So as the light in the room continues to close I couldn't help but think of some things that have been and would be on my very own bucket list. This is not going to be anything mushy and sentimental either like dancing with my late grandfather or ridiculous like meeting Jesus. Let's face it I plan to do all that someday anyway but I am not so certain about the warmth of my reception to the later. This is just a bunch of cool stuff if you will that everyone should try to do at least once in their life. Here starts another one of my ever famous lists.
