Do a handstand, learn a new language, paint a picture, write a book, die (dye?) your hair, do a parachute jump. I can't think of anything else.

I'm clumsy enough that the handstand is probably a non-starter, and I'm averse enough to flight that the parachute jump is unlikely, but some of the others are worth trying.

... and you have to pay for the priveledge.
This makes it akin to dentistry and other evils.


Of course, waxing after shaving gives a lovely sheen. :0)

Nothing is wrong with waxing. I prefer it to be honest.

But some men scream like girlies at the thought :)


So when you wax make sure you put moisturiser on and wear a fetching pair of shorts....


... and high heels :)

Improve loft insulation to recommended 8 inches.

Measure electricity consumption of all appliances in the house and see if any need replacing/never leaving on standby/using as little as possible.

Do some photomanips.

Read Tao Te Ching.

Play an instrument (piano or something else) every day for a week.

Learn to play 4 hole ocarina. (I have a spare and some music somewhere)

Teach me a tie I don't already know (there's still plenty of those)

I do need to do some serious work in the loft -- not just insulation, but decluttering and plumbing.

The meter is on one of the servers (the oldest), and it'll work its way round the appliances in due course.

I'll find a copy.

The organ is on the wrong side of a huge pile of clutter, and is probably beyond economic repair. If I'm feeling rich one day I might get hold of an inexpensive piano again.

I already have three ocarinas (ocarinae?) and I can get a just-about passable tune out of them. I might bring one to Redemption.

And yes, I'm happy to instruct.

If you want a hand decluttering, ask. There's always a chance, I might be able to help.

If the organ is beyond repair, then substitute another instrument. Play the recorder every day for a week. Learn to play a tune of your choice by ear - preferably a folk song or dance. (because then there's a fighting chance we could try a duet)

What kinds of ocarina are they? Mine only does one octave, which is rather limiting, though it does sound nice.

One of them has six holes -- four on top as usual, and two underneath. It'll do the same octave a four-hole one will do, and one tone above that.

Learn the basics of sign language, at least the alphabet.
Take a photo of yourself once a week for these 1001 days (against a white wall, always front).
Invite a homeless person to have a dinner with you at a restaurant.
Read a book by Erich Fromm.
Take part in a Flashmob.
Learn about Glamourbombing and think about your own Glamourbomb and make it real.

I learnt the alphabet once, a while ago, but it's mostly gone again. I think occasionally about learning BSL, and it's worth putting on the list.

I did a flashmob once, in August 2003, in London. We went to a sofa shop not far from Tottenham Court Road. A few months later we did another one on the pedestrian bridges between Charing Cross Station and the South Bank.
