To Do

520. Experience virtual reality

Updated September 7, 2009 Who else remembers VRML – Virtual Reality Markup Language – the language that was going to revolutionize the internet and allow web developers to create and manipulate three dimensional objects with just a few lines of code? I took a class in it. I built a tic-tac-toe board that crashed most […]

519. Go undercover with a voice recorder

Updated September 7, 2009 Do people only do this in the movies? That can’t be true – they have to use a hidden voice recorder sometimes to get people to admit to things in private that they’d never reveal to a larger group. On one hand, this doesn’t appeal to me since I’d be exploiting […]

517. Jump out of a cake

Updated July 13, 2009 A party that involves someone jumping out of a cake is a party not to be missed, that’s for sure. How many times does that actually happen in real life instead of just on television? I’d just like to be sexy and fun and surprise someone.

506. Take a lie detector test

I’m a terrible liar, so you hardly need a lie detector to tell when I’m lying, but it still might be fun.

505. Get a vanity license plate

Updated May 4, 2009 Secretly, the license plate on my car right now *is* a vanity license plate, even though it just looks like an ordinary one. It has the letters ‘BBE’ which a friend and I decided stood for Blonde Bombshell Express. I went to the DMV’s web site, all set to buy ‘WEBGIRL’ […]

503. Rent a jukebox for a party

Updated December 11, 2009 When I was growing up, a lot of places were equipped with juke boxes, from the Pizza Hut where we liked to eat lunch from time to time to the arcade where we hung out all summer long, a few quarters would make sure you heard all your favorite songs, and […]

499. Fly in the Goodyear blimp

Updated April 30, 2009 According to the Goodyear Blimp web site, the only way to get on board is to be invited by the company or win some sort of charity auction. I wonder what you’d have to do to get Goodyear to invite you…buy a lot of tires?

497. Decide on a favorite color and a lucky number

Completed February 2001 Funny thing about favorite colors and lucky numbers: It’s not so much that you choose them. They sort of choose you. My favorite color is purple. A million different shades of it – from a sumptuous deep, royal purple to a light, springtime lilac color. I associate purple with the nighttime sky, […]

496. Start a rumor and see how fast it comes around

Updated December 14, 2009 I so want to do this one, but there are a few reasons I haven’t tried it yet. First, I’m a terrible liar, so I wouldn’t be able to make something up with a straight face and tell it to anyone. Second, I’d hate to make up something hurtful or embarrassing […]

493. Throw a masked ball

Updated August 3, 2009 I’ve never known of anyone to actually throw a masked ball in real life. I’ve only seen it on television shows and in movies. But it looks like a tremendous amount of fun. Mostly I just want an excuse to wear an outrageous outfit and carry around an elaborate mask on […]
