  1. I am totally convinced that Rubik’s are unsolvable. I’ve never seen anyone do it. So I am going to indulge you and suggest you buy one, take it out the box, twist one layer 360degrees in any direction, and then stop. Congrats Slappy my friend, you just solved a Rubiks!

    1. How about I buy one …. scramble the crap out of it … and mail it to you! Yeah yeah – that’s a great idea. muahahahahaha

  2. You’ve never worn a hat in public? I’m impressed by that, it shows that you actually do something with yourself before leaving your home. I have a strong tendency to put my hair in a ponytail, throw on my trusty Cubs hat (which has performed better over the last 14 years than the Cubs themselves, yet I still love them. But that’s a whole other story), and out the door I go.

    1. I can honestly say that I have NEVER worn a hat in public … but when I do, it is going to be a doozy of a hat … with a dead bird and some singing hamsters on it!

  3. Great list! It will be exciting to check them off one by one! Using chopsticks is fun! I have some from restaurants and bought some that you can wash and reuse. When my kids were little we had a candlelight Chinese dinner (just me and the kids) once in a while at home and we would all use them!

    1. Well … liking Chinese food might make the chopsticks thing easier. Maybe I need to add “find some Chinese food that I like” to my Life List.

  4. you have very lofty goals. i always tend to underestimate myself, that way i’m never really disappointed when i fail utterly.

    ME <—- Pessimist.

    1. Stop that right now!!! You can come eat ribs with me, while using chopsticks, on New Year’s Eve in VEEEEEEEEEGAS !!!

  5. I can teach you how to use chopsticks. You can practice with brocolli or pizza rolls, like some kinda animal lol!!
