Before I’m Burger

[tweetmeme source=”your_twitter_name” only_single=false]

Okay, so when I was in college I started a list. A list of things I wanted to do before July 13, 2075. Which is, obviously, the day I’ll die.

So, I figured I’d document my progress seeing as how this is my site and I can do pretty much whatever I want. I named it Before I’m Burger, because burgers are served horizontally, which is most likely how I’ll end up, unless of course I get stuck with a javelin into a tree. Dang you Olympic games. Wanted another name but turns out The Buried Life and The Bucket List were already taken.

    Didn’t you win a 5K. That’s number 88 off the list and I can shoot you with a paintball gun anytime.

    Love your list, especially #61 be on the cover of a magazine {I’m going to steal that one for my own Bucket List}.

    Good luck with your adventures!

    I would be happy to help you out with #12. How would you feel about an awesome Dwight Shrute shirt, also a pretty sweet Sesame Street T. We could also talk hoodies if you want to amp up the stake- I have a million.

    Not put on a shirt for a week….just don’t go to wal-mart all shirtless. I’m pretty sure they frown upon that. And, btw, I am now determined to memorize 100 Bible verses. :) this is pretty much a load of awesome sauce. :D
