    I forgot to do a milestone post with No. 1,000 — and to be honest, milestone posts are lame as shit anyway — so I thought I'd use one as an excuse for this thread. Searched the archives to no avail, so here goes nothing. As long or as short as you want.

    1) See a Doowop All-Stars show with my dad.
    2) Sell a screenplay.
    3) Catch a home run; a foul ball would be OK, but a home run would really be something.
    4) Get arrested for something inconsequential and live to talk about it.
    5) Recreate the path of National Treasure.
    6) Become a trucker for three months.
    7) Take my niece to the zoo.
    8) Play hookie from work and grab a hot dog and a beer and just sit on the street and watch people.
    9) Write a book or two or 24.
    10) Revisit Europe, and do it the right way this time.

    Actually, right after I saw the Bucket List, I made the list of places I wanted to go before I was 30, wrote it down and saved it. (I put it on my private blog and stickied it, so it stares me in face every day.)

    I have traveled outside of the United States. Now I want to travel in it. I want to see my country.

    1. New York City
    2. Boston
    3. Tampa, Fla.
    4. San Francisco
    5. Dallas and/or San Antonio
    6. Washington, D.C.
    7. Louisville, Ky.
    8. Nashville, Tenn.

    (This is one place per year from now until I turn 30. I guess I've done Louisville since after I made this list, I moved to Kentucky, but I still need to go there and sightsee and stuff.)

    My Bucket List would actually involve Little Man, in some instances...

    1. Take Little Man to walk the deck of the USS Wisconsin just once.
    2. Take Little Man to see a real snowstorm or blizzard. Just once. :D
    3. Drive a high-powered sports car down an empty, straight highway at absolute top speed.
    4. Go scuba diving in the reefs off Australia.
    5. Have at least five or six books published and see them sell well.
    6. See one of my stories turned into a really good movie.
    7. Kiss Alyssa Milano.
    8. Be in orbit around the planet.
    9. Be in a jet as it breaks the sound barrier.
    10. Kiss Alyssa Milano.

    I started a bucket list a couple of years ago and have already crossed three items off (sat ringside at WrestleMania, went to Vegas and performed with a rock band on stage during a concert). That leaves the following, in no particular preference:

    1. Vacation in Florida (this one is only nine days away)
    2. Have a threesome
    3. Get cast in a movie, even if it's only as an extra
    4. Get married (This one seems to be getting closer and closer)
    5. Have kids.
    6. Coach a Little League baseball team and win at least one game
    7. Visit California and take a picture with the Hollywood sign as the backdrop
    8. Visit every state in the US for at least a day (Nine down, soon to be ten)
    9. Go to the Super Bowl/NBA/MLB/NHL Finals
    10. Interview one of my idols growing up
    11. Retire by 60
