Well, now. THIS isn't a good sign...

I was playing around with the 43 Things website, where you list 43 goals for your life. (It's totally cheesy, but kind of neat, all at the same time.) You make your list, check it twice, and then you find out what other people have the sames goals. It's all very touchy-feely.

Well, when I made one particular, and fairly innocuous, entry....I saw this:

Damn...that CANNOT be right. Who puts "Commit Suicide" on their Life-goals list? And WHY do they also want the same things I want? That's creepy.

Ha ha! Fiction never holds a candle to reality. I'm sure it's a joke. I still love you!

The irony will be that whoever wrote that will end up living a long, healthy life through nothing more than total lack of ambition.

Well, judging from IM's comment, it looks as though you can tick "mean something to someone" off your list. May I suggest "never watch another episode of The Real World, even by accident" as a worthy replacement?

Barn, I'm insulted. If indeed that was an insult. Flamingo has a lot of people who care for her. She's like the Mary of the blogosphere, with lots of questionable guys fighting over her.

Wait, am I "the Mary" like Jesus' mom...or like from "Romy and Michelle's" where they argued over who was "the Mary" and who was "the Rhoda"?
Either way, I guess.

Completely not an insult, Ian. (Unless you were on Real which case, my bad. Sorry.) I actually thought your comment was nice.
Damn this infernal text-based communication and its lack of inflection!

i hope that if suicide is truly on someone's life goals list then it comes last, otherwise the ensuing goals become rather moot.

Flamingo, I was thinking more like Mary of the "Something About" kind :)

Barn, gotcha. You're right that print can mess up inflection. Blast! All is forgiven, Pez fella.

Ah! That makes so much more sense. :)

BTW, Jones, regardless of how much I love you: I'm the Mary. I'M THE MARY!

ha ha ha! That's OK. You can be THAT Mary. I'll be the other Mary who gets to date Ben Stiller, Matt Dillon and Brett Favre. Brett Favre...mmmmmm.
