2018 Preview – REINVENT

Posted on February 22, 2018

We are two months into 2018, and the word of the year is REINVENT. I kicked and screamed against this word – there was just something REpetitive about it. I didn’t want to REinvent, I wanted to INVENT, damn it. But then, I found peace in the holy book as I often do (aka the

“This Year I…” – The Birth Of Operation Bucket List Group

Posted on December 22, 2017

Something really cool happened this year almost unintentionally, as many cool things tend to do. I started Operation Bucket List Facebook group for folks who wanted to come up with their own bucket list, or already had one, and find a community of fellow weirdos who like lists of all kinds, but especially lists of

Operation Bucket List – Halloween Homework

Posted on October 30, 2017

“What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad”. This year is the year. “Dress up as Trinity from the Matrix for Halloween”

2017 Ragnar Relay Niagara – Race Recap

Posted on May 23, 2017

Wanting to take advantage of early registration price, we were registered for Ragnar Relay for many months. This race has been on my radar (and therefore, on my bucket list) for few years, yet I could never make it happen for two reasons: 1. timing – most of my weekends in the summer would have

Operation Bucket List – Write Poetry Every Day For A Week

Posted on February 10, 2017

I can’t remember WHEN I added this item to my bucket list. I know it’s been on there for a while. And I know that a week seemed like a really long time at the time to do something as ethereal and as ephemeral as poetry. I wrote bad love poems in high school –

2016 In Review – COMMITMENT

Posted on January 27, 2017

This time around I took the annual review a bit more seriously, which is why I am posting this at the end of January. Turned out when you take things seriously, they take time. Who would have thought? This is brand new information! I do feel like this more-thorough approach results in a much clearer picture,

Operation Bucket List – It’s Just Hair

Posted on December 29, 2016

“Are you ready?”. My hairstylist is a beautiful blonde, rocking intricate ink on her arms. Her name is Allison, and I found her by Googling all things hair, undercuts, and funky dos in Toronto. I am at Textur Studio, after biting the bullet and making an appointment, Pinterest board in hand. This particular venture started

Operation Gettin’ Hitched – Marriage in a Bucket – Episode 1

Thanks to my talented friend, Lisa Lightbourn-Lay, instead of a traditional wedding video, I will be launching a web miniseries “OPERATION GETTIN’ HITCHED”. Stay tuned for new episodes each Thursday – until I say “I DO!”. Many women dream of getting married. So I am told. Not many women put that on a bucket list

Operation Bucket List – Run A Race Barefoot

Posted on August 29, 2016

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”. – Kahlil Gibran Why would I want to run a race barefoot? Not sure. But it’s on the bucket list, so that’s good enough for me. I figure there are enough items on there

Why A 100-Lb Snatch And The Relativity Of Goals

Posted on April 7, 2016

When I first shared my bucket list online, one of the most common responses I received from folks was: “Wow, there are some things on your list that I have already done, or can do easily! I would have never imagined that they are bucket list worthy!”. After all, a flip turn is not that
