To do list

All this public speaking is fraying my mind around the edges. I am an introvert when I’m not holding a microphone. (Do not hand me a microphone. Please.) Pretending to be an extrovert is taking a toll. I find myself making bizarre lists.

So here is my weird list of things to do. I came up with it while eating leftover goulash for dinner.

1. Enter a bass fishing contest.
2. Visit Iceland in the summer.
3. Grow my own popcorn.
4. Create weird artsy-fartsy tile masterpieces on random walls of our house.
5. Visit Iceland in the winter.

Once I shut up for a month or two, I might return to my senses.

Or not.

What weird thing is on your to-do list?

  7. Growing your own popcorn is overrated. Sure, it’s cool to watch the stalks sprout up and I’m all about the anticipation factor of munching your self-nurtured kernels. Problem is, there’s a step in between. You have to get the darn things off the cob. Have you ever tried it? Ow. Thumb blisters. Galore.

    Not a good thing for a writer. Not a good thing for a reader either — if, say, she’s hoping the popcorn grower will produce another great crop of words sometime soon ;^)

  16. Thats interesting, because I flipped on Oprah yesterday, and they were talking about Iceland and everything, and I had the strange urge to go there. It seems like a really cool country.

    And I think one of my weirdest goals would to be at least try on a pair of sunglasses that Bono once wore.

  19. Ok, this might be a completely pointless attempt, but hey, who gets shot for trying? My name is Lauren, I’m a sophomore in high school, and I’m doing a project for my Creative Writing class. I don’t want to bother you (and you can ignore or delete this entire comment if you so desire, I won’t take offense), but I wondered if there was anything you could tell me about what influenced you to write as you do. Thank you (and sorry!).
