The basis of today’s office based conversation was: "what things do you want to do before you die?" Suggestions ranged from the silly to the ridiculous to the vaguely sensible. One of my co-workers wanted to drop a water melon off a high building and film the impact. I wanted to smash a building up in a JCB (or set fire to one) and stay awake for 72 hours. Someone suggested throwing a cream pie into the face of a total stranger was something that everyone must do at some point in their lives.
We all decided that throwing a cream pie into someones face was impossibly cool (provided they didn’t attack you and you had an escape route).
My list of "Things to do before I die" currently stands at (but is not limited to):
1) Do the Trans Siberian railway
2) See Machu Picchu in Peru
3) Write a novel
4) Set fire to or otherwise destroy a building (possibly illiegal)
5) Cream pie a stranger (also possibly illegal?)
6) Write a song
7) Learn to juggle
8) Read War & Peace, the bible and all those other long books which are apparently worthwhile
On an unrelated note: the set list for my DJ debut is in the comments of the entry below
