Thorny Thursday Thirteen

I have never:

  1. Had a pedicure
  2. Traveled to the Frisian Islands
  3. Owned diamonds
  4. Eaten roadkill
  5. Driven cross country
  6. Drank absinthe
  7. Been self-employed
  8. Flown a plane
  9. Gotten a speeding ticket
  10. Played golf
  11. Had dinner at Per Se
  12. Smoked a cigarette
  13. Sailed to Europe on a Polish freighter

The prime numbered items I think I’d like to do. The others? I don’t think so.

Ive actually only done one of those- a pedicure.

What a list..Hope you get to do some of these!

Another contest starting tomorrow at Random thought, lasting 7 days..its pretty easy and I have some great prizes!!!

WorksForMom said...

Great idea for a list. And thank goodness you've never eaten roadkill.

Teryn said...

Personally, I think diamonds and pedicures are overrated (although the foot massage portion of the pedicure is nice). I don't think I've done any of the others, either -- ok, the cigarette, yes.

Well this was clever. Very well done. Glad about the never smoking thing. Do try the pedicure though...wonderful. Have a great TT. :)

i have done a few of these (pedicure, drive cross country, get a speeding ticket- alas) but eat roadkill? yeah, I'll pass on that one, thanks. And how clever are you? prime numbers. he he

Awesome Mom said...

I would have been very worried if you had eaten roadkill.

Nancy J. Bond said...

There are a few here that are already guilty pleasures for me...but a few I'd also like to try. :) Great list.

Gail Martin said...

Pedicures are nice. I thought I was the only one who had never gotten a speeding ticket.

Happy TT!

Buck Naked Politics said...

What a great list: I've never thought about focusing on what I haven't done.

andi said...

#1 - you must try. Not so for the speeding ticket - I really, really wish I could claim to have never had one of those. Sigh.

Joyismygoal said...

Good for you on 4 of those But you ought to drive cross country it is fun!

Sherry said...

I've done a few of those, but not all :)

Noelle said...

Cheers!!

Ewwwww. Roadkill. You know, I haven't done these things either, including the pedicure, whcih i am determined to do at least once, although the idea of someone touching my feet makes me cringe just ever so slightly.
Very clever. I must ask, at the risk of showing my ignorance bluntly, what is absinthe? Yes, I know, I should know that...;)

Fun idea...

slouching mom said...

I had a pedicure for the first time only last year, and I recommend it.

Unfortunately, I have both tried cigarettes and received a speeding ticket.

MadMad said...

It's good to know what you don't need in life, isn't it?

Scribbit said...

PRetty creative items though. :)

Never had a pedicure myself.

Bloggers said...

I have never had a pedicure either. I do need one though.

hmmmm maybe what I will do with my payperpost money.

my 13 is up on

pinknest said...

i've never had a pedicure either!

niobe said...

Now I'm thinking that I must go to the Frisian Islands. Which I'd never heard of until I read your list.

mayberry said...

Yes... I'd have to pass on the roadkill saute with absinthe chaser, too.

Playful Professional said...

I think that everyone needs a pedicure. Once you get one, you'll never go back.

samulli said...

Well, why would you ever want to do most of these anyway? LOL
Especially the roadkill thing ... ewwww. :o)
I like the thought of sailing to Europe on a polish freighter, though. Not that I ever would (would be hard anyway, since I already live in Europe), but it's an interesting idea - in a very "how the f..k did she get that idea" sort of way.

Sniz said...

I smoked ONE cigarette while in college to impress a guy. YUCK! No guy is worth it!!!

furrow said...

I've done three of these. Maybe four, considering some of the dives I've eaten in.

jo(e) said...

I've never done anything on this list either. I had never even heard of a pedicure until I began blogging, and the concept seems peculiar to me. I'd much rather spend the money on a massage ....

Nicholas said...

I've done 8, 9 and 12. I wouldn't mind doing 8 again but not the others.
