Only 5 days Left Until It's Over...

I had to get up at 7:30 today--what an ungodly hour!--to get out of the house by 8:30 (another ungodly hour), to go to a brunch in a whole other state by 10:00 a.m. Sooooo . . . here's something to contemplate in my absence:

You have 5 days left to live. Then it's all over--you're gone from Earth. What 5 things would you do before your life ends on ... Wednesday?

WEDNESDAY???

List your answers in the comments section please.

Damn, that's too much for me to think about at 7:30 am on a Saturday. Besides, I should be outside building a shed, why are trying to distract me with this stuff?

I would:

1. tell him i like him and ask for a kiss and some sex (is this TMI?)

2. I would hop on a flight to Italy and do a quick tour of the country

3. I would, obviously, quit my job (by phone)

4. I would tell those near and dear to me how much I love them.

5. I would go spend lots of money on lottery tickets, pray that I won and then give all the money to those I love.

wow, didn't think I had it in me for all that....thanks for the test, that was fun.

I would:

1. Sky-diving. (I figure, if I'm going to die on Wednesday anyway, I've got nothing to lose.)

2. Eat lobster, steak, steamed clams, and chocolate walnut brownies with dark fudge frosting.

3. Spend an entire day in bed with my husband and maybe buy a toy or two just to try them out.

4. Spend the day with family and tell them how much I love them or loathe them.

5. Not sleep for the last 24 hours so that I can see the sunrise and sunset with my husband and a kaluha and cream in the jacuzzi.

1. Make sure everyone who is important to me knows they are loved and make sure to see them one last time. Maybe throw a big party!

2. Go to DisneyWorld. I haven't been there either Jane. Waaaa.

3. See Venice and Murano, Italy, one last time. (Looks like almost everyone wants to go to Italy.)

4. Sit at the edge of the ocean and stare at the waves. (I have simple demands.)

5. Drive my Toyota Scion TC at 100 mph and not care if I get a ticket because I won't be here to pay it.

5a. Make sure my cats Frankie & Johnny are well provided for and happy.

1. Hang-glide over the ocean and wave to my friends below.
2. Say goodbye to my favorite and most loved poeple. I like Zed's idea to hold a party--a big, loud, raucous party.
3. Dance, dance, and then dance some more.
4. Sing on the radio live!
5. Play piano for everyone I know at Carnegie Hall.
