I have, for some time, suspected that my bucket list might differ substantially from those of other, lesser mortals. A swift peruse through the Bucket List tag on WordPress confirms this.
AIM HIGHER PEOPLE!
I have no idea whether or not you have the capability to achieve higher aims, but just reading “go to Six Flags” umpteen times is fucking depressing, okay? AIM HIGHER. For me.
And now to my bucket list:
- Marry Prince Caspian
- Win Nobel Prize for Literature before 30 (nb requires time machine at this point)
- Capture and tame and break to ride a wild mustang, dressage optional
- Become the White Rahnee of Sarawak
- Have John Galliano call me a muse
- Make memorable entrance to Annabel’s
- Compete in a three day event
- See Bali from the inside, the way I saw the Bandas
- Have a good sit-down with Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia
- At least once pre-empt Biella Coleman when the media asks for comment on Anonymous. Just once, come on girl
- EDITED TO ADD: Wikipedia entry. How could I have forgotten?
Mork & Mindy: In Mork We Trust (#1.21)” (1979)
Orson: The report, Mork.
Mork: This week I discovered a terrible disease called loneliness.
Orson: Do many people on Earth suffer from this disease?
Mork: Oh yes sir, and how they suffer. One man I know suffers so much he has to take a medication called bourbon, even that doesn’t help very much because then he can hear paint dry.
Orson: Does bed rest help?
Mork: No because I’ve heard that sleeping alone is part of the problem. You see, Orson, loneliness is a disease of the spirit. People who have it think that no one cares about them.
Orson: Do you have any idea why?
Mork: Yes sir you can count on me. You see, when children are young, they’re told not to talk to strangers. When they go to school, they’re told not to talk to the person next to them. Finally when they’re very old, they’re told not to talk to themselves, who’s left?
Orson: Are you saying Earthlings make each other lonely?
Mork: No sir I’m saying just the opposite. They make themeslves lonely, they’re so busy looking out for number one that there’s not enough room for two.
Orson: It’s too bad everybody down there can’t get together and find a cure.
Mork: Here’s the paradox sir because if they did get together, they wouldn’t need one.
It’s funny, but the days volunteering in the forum is awful have something in common with the days when working in the forum is hilarious. That thing? The presence of complete morons.
EG the following conversation, tagged (with apparent sincerity) “Thoughts of a genius.”
A conversation with Jesus
Oh, How I wish to forgive and just forgive
So I be at peace, in relief
To target an area in heart of hopelessness
With a hand that digs out in me forgiveness
So I myself as well be granted happiness
Finding it hard due to some carelessness
I had a conversation with Jesus one night
Who he himself whispered good news in my ears
Brought about solutions to let disappear my fears
He indulged me in tunes by singing lyrical vibes of Mathew 6 verse 14
I danced to the rhythm yet never thought of stopping nor pausing
He told me forgiveness is an act of intention
An alarm or signal towards the perception of reality
Without a gun on my head but it being voluntarily
This is a tale of a line between the perpetrator and the victimized
Where the victimized abandons the negativity of emotions
Rehabilitating the perpetrator purposefully forgetting sadism
Ultimately seeing light in the tunnel of possible reconciliation
Withdrawing from the strings of hatred that has us by our tongues and fingertips
Withdrawing from future plans of vengeance
With his voice of tough love, firm but loving, told me
Forgiveness is a lifting of a burden suppressing the life within
And yet a contradiction between forgiving and forgetting
For memory and heart is photographic
For the heart is sacred than the mind controversial as it should be
For with peace seeking through introspection and
Forgiving no eye shall be prohibited to see
I may not be looking forward to calling you a friend
Or invite you for lunch or a sip of coffee
I may not be looking forward to welcoming you inside my home
Or inside my heart for that matter
But I’m definitely looking forward to letting my heart be at peace
He made me realise that we should forgive ourselves
For not forgiving others in the journey of finding healing
Emphasizing that a good heart does not await an apology
Though it taketh a good man to accept it
It taketh a great man to maketh an apology
