To Do

539. Send a friend flowers for no particular reason on no special day

Updated May 3, 2010 Can you imagine how great it would feel to just receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers out of the blue one day? It would just be impossible to have a bad day after that. So I’ll do that for one of my precious friends one of these days. And maybe I’ll […]

534. Surprise someone with Swedish fish

Gummy, chewy, red little fish. I don’t know anyone who’s tried them who didn’t love them.

508. Lend money with no questions asked

Updated March 21, 2010 This is on my list because when I was in big financial trouble, friends stepped in a loaned money to me with no questions asked and it was such a huge help. There are two situations where you’d need to borrow money from friends or family – first, when there’s a […]

456. Send steaks and/or lobsters to someone

Updated June 20, 2010 Yes, I suppose I am talking about Omaha Steaks or Lobstergram. So what? How fun would it be to open your door to some delicious juicy steaks or fresh lobster? That’s a lot more fun than the usual gift. I’ve never received steaks or lobster, but I did get Maryland Crab […]

431. Deliver a home-cooked meal to a sick friend

Tangerine and I prepared a feast for a friend who had just had a baby and needed some help getting some real home-cooked meals on the table.

418. Throw an adult prom

It’s just fun to dress up in beautiful clothes and dance with friends.

410. Send someone a dozen red roses

What a surprise and delight it would be to receive a dozen red roses out of the blue for no reason at all.

409. Invite friends over for a slumber party

Updated September 24, 2009 You might be thinking that surely I completed this one while I was a kid. But honestly, I don’t remember ever having a slumber party. The closest I got was having one friend spend the night, but that’s hardly a slumber party. As a ‘grown-up’ I’ve been to slumber parties at […]

402. Buy a friend a gift for no reason at all

I want my friends to know that I’m thinking of them even when they’re not around, so I buy little things that remind me of them.

345. Send dozens of postcards for no particular reason

Updated August 3, 2009 I’ve tried this a few times. Postcards are cheap and interesting, and who doesn’t like getting something aside from bills and junk in the mail? I like to go and buy cute or clever postcards with the intention of sending them out to anyone and everyone I know, but somehow it […]
