Day Four: Six things you wish you’d never done.
I’m changing this (because I can) to six things I’d love to do but haven’t done yet, because this is not the place for regret.
I’ve wanted to go on a road trip across the United States forever. Almost. I’ve been obsessed with the US since I was about seven. It all began with Elvis and thinking New York was just across the water (as in, where Ireland is).
Learn to swim and have a swimming pool in my house. In fact, the only way I’ll learn to swim is if I build a swimming pool or if they clear the local baths of all spectators.
Dye my hair red. I’ve tried, trust me. But all I ever seem to get is a slight reddish cast, but then I haven’t tried for years and hair dyes appear to have improved. Of course, five minutes after it’s dyed red, I’ll probably decide I want to go back to my usual colour – dark brown.
Lose weight. Okay, I have lost weight only not right now. :P In fact, I once got down to 7 stone 12 lb by eating white food. I’m going to starve myself in 2011 and maybe I’ll eat all pink food. Yay, candy floss. In fact, if you hear mention of my licking chocolate on twitter – please employ some tough love and tell me to put the treat down and move away from the problem.
See one of my books on a shelf in a real brick and mortar store and not just because I’ve taken Strange Men out of my bag and put it there. Though I will resort to that if need be.
Place a short story with Weird Tales, Shimmer, Interzone, Fantasy and Science Fiction, and a ton of other places not yet won.
