“Don’t take life too seriously– nobody makes it out alive anyway.”
That said, we’ve got about 75 years or so to smell the roses. How do we choose to spend it? By doing nerdy awesome things, of course! Using a Sharpie to cover a towel with Hitchhiker quotes, reading a fantasy novel so many times the cover comes off, watching the 25th Anniversary Les Mis Concert Tour on PBS over and over (I cried…. again….), drinking Coke with licorice as a straw. Singing songs about quarks and emailing Warner Chilcott to tell them “you suck”. Dreaming about guys who don’t exist, organizing our Hank Green CDs in alphabetical order, doing NaNoWriMo and naming all our Wurmples after everyone in the Malfoy family tree.
I’m compiling a bucket list, of all the totally lame things you should do before you, well, kick the bucket. And I need submissions. Leave them in the comments (or make your own blog post about them and link to it here!), NaNoMail me (AlohaAuthor7), email me, or put a banana in your favorite ear. There is no reason you shouldn’t be able to contact me. And then we’ll have a MASSIVE unveiling of the biggest nerdy bucket list on this side of Narnia! Let’s set a due date of March 20— that’s a full week and a half from now–so I can whip it together. It will be llama’d DFTBA’in epic.
Almost as epic as that.
