1. Weep openly and loudly in public.
2. Spend a long, dark night in jail.
3. Break a bone (not a vertebrae, though).
These are my insurance goals. It works in a few ways: First, if I do end up breaking my arm in the next three years, there'll be a bright side. Second, I'll be better prepared to accept the risks in some of the other goals (e.g. I don't have to be afraid of breaking down onstage during a play (see #13), because it's something I'll have to do anyway). And most importantly, if I don't complete everything on this list, that'll be okay, because some things I really didn't want to do. Okay, back to the show.
4. Publish something.
5. Go to Nunavut.
6. Rock Grande Prairie.

12. Sing in a choir.
13. Perform in a theatre production.
14. Get named "Employee Of The Month". (And no, the DRDC doesn't have such a program. Yet.)
15. Renounce my microwaving ways and rediscover the art of cuisine.
16. Take up the piano again.
17. Sign up for a night class in French.
18. Sign up for a correspondence course in Japanese.

The next twenty-five tomorrow.
