35 Things To Do Before I Turn 36

So, a while back, I fell in love with this post by Andrea, an Atlanta blogger I am fond of. She hosts Photobooth Friday on her blog, and you know how I love the photobooth photos. I was especially entertained when she went to NYC recently and posted her photobooth pics taken at that notorious watering hole, Niagara. That, of course, led me to wonder if Lakeside Lounge was still there and whether they still have their photobooth and whether Andrea knows about it. Don’t know the answer to the last question, but Lakeside Lounge is indeed still there, if you believe the internet, and they do still have the photobooth, and in fact, they have a whole section of their website dedicated to photo strips that are, I warn you! Really not safe for work, so much... You aren't surprised, are you?

They also have profiles of the bartenders, and I was left wondering if their Lara is the same bartending Lara who used to always smell like vanilla essential oil and die her long center-parted hair sort of magenta and who stole my BF from me in 1993. Okay, she didn’t really steal him, but it sounded more interesting that way. He came back later, but I didn’t want him by then. Who would have?

Anyway, I did have a point, it was about Andrea’s great post about 36 things she wants to do before she turns 37. With her permission, I am stealing this idea and am going to do my own list here of 35 things to do before I turn 36. Ali, are you game? Here are my first five:

- plan another beach weekend
- try my first intarsia knitting project, preferably something featuring the International Rock On symbol
- attend the Tomales Bay Writers conference again in October
- eat a dozen oysters every month with an r in the name
- take some more photobooth pics with the lovely ladies featured above

What are you gonna' do before your next birthday? Ali? Anyone? Bueller? I want to hear!
