So, it looks like since I haven't been fired, kicked out of my house, set myself on fire, etc etc, I must live a pretty dull life. However, I have:
Given birth
Gotten several tattoos, one of which is pretty large and hurt quite a lot, thank you very much
Been to Nome, Alaska
Driven the Al-Can (though that isn't the ordeal it once was)
Lived in Communist Russia, and ridden a ferris wheel in Gorky Park in the snow
Nearly completed a triathlon
Driven a school bus
Made bagels by hand for a living
Appeared in a swimsuit in front of actual triathletes
Ridden a motorcycle in a full set of custom-made Langlitz leathers
Given money to friends who needed it, with no intent of accepting it back
Taken money from friends when I needed it, with no way to thank them enough
Asked my Dad if his arms were just painted on, that he couldn't dial a phone to call me
Experienced total contentment -- it's fleeting, and elusive, and worth the struggle.

That's a great list. I don't have time to do it now because some of them require some explanation.
