Bucket List?

I just finished watching the movie. The Bucket List, and I was curious as to who has seen this movie and if anyone here has a "Bucket List". If you don't know what a bucket list is its a to do list before you kick the bucket. Pretty simple.

I saw the movie few months ago (in-flight movie) on the way to the States. Quite entertaining, but setting is somewhat unrealistic. As far as my own list, gotta think a bit on that. Jimmy

Great movie, 2 of my favorite actors. I don't currently have a bucket list. Now that you bring it up, I've actually achieved all my dreams and goals. They are now all gone or going but I did achieve them. I wanted a Ferrari, got that. I wanted a heated garage with a lift, got that (for 4 days, fucking bitch wife). I wanted to be a ship captain and my first command was a ship called Enterprise. So all in all, even though I am living in a motel right now and my life is controlled by my wife's lawyer, I'm happy with what I've accomplished.

I guess my next goal will be to rent a large estate somewhere in Asia and have a half dozen hot, young Asian women serve me. After that I can "kick the bucket".

You don't need to be my neighbor, we'd have more fun if you lived at the estate. Of course we'd have to up the women count to an even dozen.

Pete, can I be your Butler? Every succesful American needs an English Butler, but don't expect me to do any work. I just want to live in your house rent free, drink your beer and sample anything else that might be on offer

As far as the Bucket List goes, I can't say I've ever drawn up a list of things I must do before I die, but ambitions I've had and achieved are
1. To own a Ferrari (I did for 2 years)
2. Freefall parachute jump
3. Fly a plane
4. Own a good Swiss watch
5. Own a holiday home in a sunny country

There are still lots of other things I want to achieve
1. Own a Ferrari
2. Travel overland from the UK to Japan (taking in the Trans Siberian Railway and finishing off with a ride on the Bullet Train)
3. Take a year out to travel around the world

Archie, an English butler is a great idea. I would love to have you serve me and I've already got a nice skimpy little 2-piece outfit picked out for your uniform.

I'd prefer the skimpy outfits to be worn by the posse of hot females who'll be sunbathing around your pool. Shorts and a short sleeved shirt will be fine for me

Lane, That's the one piece outfit I had picked out for Archie. The 2-piece is much more humiliating. If he is to be my servant he needs to be humbled. A humble Englishman, yeah right. LOL!

You are right about us needing a lot of beer though. I don't think I could watch Archie on that stripper pole without a bunch of beer in me.

Archie, you know that before you agreed to be my butler you should have asked to see the job description.

So Chris, what is your bucket list? I know you want to become a doctor and own a Ferrari. What else?

Ahh, well after watching the movie I have decided to begin to throw together a bucket list and haven't had time to really think about it so here it goes.

*Earn a degree in Biology
*Get accepted into a Dental school
*Become a Dentist/orthodontist (maybe)
*Buy a house
*Buy a Ferrari
*Race the Ferrari or an exotic sports car at a track
*Get married
*Have a family
*Travel to Europe (would be awesome to meet some FL members-since you know I spend a bit of time on this site....but only a bit of course )
*Own my own Dental office
*Be content with my life
*I'll add more as they come to my mind.

Trust me, I would not look good in drag many years ago I went to a fancy dress party dressed as the nun from the Sound of Music film, it was not a pretty sight. Perhaps I should have shaved the 2 weeks growth of stubble from my chin first.

Just one question, was this supposed to be a costume party?
