Great list, MG. I had chicken pox at 18, and it was the worst. Thought I'd never look the same again!

May you never be forced to bungee jump, whether it's on the list or not. That's just plain crazy shit...trusting your life to a carny with no front teeth? I think not!

Michelle said...

Great list! Bungee jumping is not that bad, but I'd never do it now that I'm someone's (x3) mom. You have to do it at one of the "professional" set-ups though. I agree with the previous comment...toothless carnies should not be entrusted with your life.

Krys said...

I've gone bungee jumping three times. Michelle is correct. It's worth paying a LOT to do.

So, I take it skydiving is out of the question for you?! ;)

Monkey Girl said...

Hey Girls,
Glad you liked the list, it wasn't my own, just borrowed.

Sorry to let you guys down, but I've never been interested in a sport/passtime that the end result could be my death. Plus...and it's a big one, I'm deathly afraid of heights (and spiders)!!!!

And yes Krys, skydiving is completely out of the question. The only way you'd see me jumping out of a plane is if it's going to crash.

Jay said...

I'm curious, was your visit to the White House a touristy one, or was it regarding "official" business? Not sure why I put quotes around "official" in that sentence. Though the reason for it should be clear in the second one. Anyway...

You are officially a mental crush now, but know you've had a place in my Google Reader for many many months now.

Christie said...

Why would you want to get stung by a bee? I've made it my goal to never be stung, and I'm winning so far.

Monkey Girl said...

J and C,

Jay,
Ooooh, how sweet. And no it wasn't official business, even though my father did work for the Reagan administration...main reason I'm a solid liberal now.

C,
I never wanted to get stung but the bee had been locked in the car for probably a week and was very pissed off.

Can we find the person who has never owned a cell phone. I don't think they let you breathe without one any more.

Getting stung by bees sucks. I got stung on my thumb when I was little. Ouch.

sid said...

PunditMom said...

I'd say that's pretty good!

And thanks for the great comment at my place!
