Every now and again you’ll hear people talking about their bucket list. Things they want to do before they die.
I’ve never really had a bucket list. It might be a Bi-Polar/ADHD thing, but there are things that I’ve really wanted to do, obsessed about really, and then, a few seconds/minutes/days later I’ve completely forgotten about it.
This included things like learning how to ski so that I could do this. (I’ll stop typing for a bit so you can stop laughing)
The other day I wasn’t watching where I was going and ended up kicking the bucket…well the pail. As I put it back in the closet I started thinking about bucket lists.
So, in no particular order, this is what I came up with:
Rule a small country
There are a lot of attractive things about being the supreme leader of a small country.
I was initially thinking the country should be in a warmer climate. The thing I absolutely detest the most about winter is the time I have to take to clean snow off my car and scrape ice off the windows. Then it occurred to me that if I was the supreme ruler, that there’s a pretty good chance that I’d have someone to do that for me….or a garage.
Then, as the supreme ruler, I could go completely insane and no one would ask me if I was off my meds. I could dance around naked and not worry about my neighbours leaving me notes asking me to please for the love of all that is holy to close my curtains.
Hell, I could decree that everyone dance around naked, with their curtains open.
Then there’s the bonus of being able to wear a fancy uniform with lots of brocade and other trimmings!
Of course, if I ran a country and didn’t have to worry about elections or what other people thought, I could ban things that piss me off like poverty and injustice.
No, seriously, I would do that. For real. In all the insanity and hijinks I would absolutely decree that security of person, shelter and nutrition were absolute David Given rights.

Seriously, this has been bothering me for a long time.
Learn Python and LUA
I don’t know why, but my attempts to become proficient in these languages have always been stymied.
I’m extremely proficient in what, something like 8 other programming languages, but I can’t seem to pick these up.
Perhaps its the structure and syntax, or maybe its…ohhhhhh shinnnnieeeee…..
Sorry, what was I talking about?
Finish reading the entire Game of Thrones saga
Yeah, this is a tough one.
I’m 50, so there’s a chance I might be able to tick this one off my list.
Have something I produce go viral
Yeah, I’m an attention whore…get over it.
