The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

So this week, we’re talking about our Anti Bucket List – things that we never, ever, ever want to do. Ever.


These are in no particular order, but I never want to…

Go to Vegas. Call me boring, but this just holds no appeal for me. It sounds completely overstimulating and overwhelming, and I think I’d be rocking in a corner somewhere. Yes…I know they have all kinds of cool shows and stuff, but oh god…the lights and the noise and the people. The idea of that just makes me want to turn off all the lights and sit quietly in a dark room.

Explore a Tropical Rain Forest. Dude. They have spiders the size of small dogs there. And also lots of hideous, ginormous bugs, and unimaginable heat and humidity. None of these are things I would even remotely enjoy. Especially, the giant soul-sucking spiders. (I assume they grow so large be feeding on souls.) Besides, there are plenty of other places I’d rather go.

Go to Australia. I was all about going there. Until I saw the size of the spiders they have there. No. Fucking. Thank. You.

Cliff diving, bungee jumping, skydiving, mountain climbing. Nothing up high. Nothing that requires falling or jumping. I mean, I’m great at falling. So great, it’s practically my mutant ability. I also have vertigo. And I’m clumsy. And afraid of heights. A couple of summers ago my mom and sister and I went to see Fleetwood Mac at a big stadium. I thought I was going to die climbing to our seats. I had to hang on to my mom’s shirt and stare straight at the middle of her back to make it up and down the stairs without getting dizzy and falling over. So yeah – anything like this? No way.

Confront my phobias with desensitization therapy. This seems like the worst idea ever. I’m perfectly content living with my fear of clowns, spiders and being buried alive.

I’m sure there are more things that I don’t ever want to do, but these are the ones that popped into my head first. Click the names below to see the other bloggers’ Anti-Bucket Lists.

  1. I so hear you on the spiders. Dude spiders are the devil’s minions. And if they’re soul sucking large ones then it just means their full on demons. JS. However I would chance them for Australia at least once. Pretty much everything else I agree. I’ll do Vegas because too many people in my life want to and well I can’t be left out but it’s not really high on my to go places.

      We call spiders Satan’s Snowflakes. No two are alike and they’re each individually handcrafted by Satan.

      If you go to Vegas, I hope you have a blast. If you go to Australia, I hope your trip is void of spiders. πŸ˜€

    Having been to Vegas twice, you are not boring. Stay away!

    1. Bronwyn says:

      Thank you! I feel vindicated now. Usually, whenever I say I don’t want to go to Vegas, I get the side-eye from people. πŸ™‚

    I totally hear you on Vegas!! Let’s not go to Vegas together. πŸ™‚ And the tropical rain forest NO. I already did a forest deal when we went to Mexico and it was as hot and miserable as you can imagine. Didn’t see gigantic spiders though, if I had I would have totally lost my shit. My sister did explain the other day that spiders can’t get huge because the atmosphere doesn’t have enough oxygen in it. Ummm, okay.

      Look, I love Jude, but I’ve seen pictures of those bastards. NOPE!

    I’ll do Vegas. Mostly because that would mean time away with the hubby. But it’s not high on my list as something i want to see. If that makes sense. And everything else on your list…with ya.

    1. Bronwyn says:

      That’s a good enough reason to go there. Though, I’d probably hide out in a hotel room the entire time. πŸ™‚

  5. I went through a phase of wanting to be a wildlife researcher. I used to love the idea of living up close to a group of chimps and studying them like Jane Goodall. Actually, it still sounds pretty great when I put it like that. But I hate hot weather. And humidity. And anything remotely like camping. So that’s pretty much a terrible idea.

    Also, I can’t get the idea of chewing broken glass wrapped in tinfoil out of my head. Do you think eating some chocolate would help? Because I reckon it’s worth a try.

    1. Bronwyn says:

      Ooops! Sorry about that. Definitely try the chocolate. Or maybe some chips. That really is horrible imagery, isn’t it?

      I love animals. And being outside. Well, outside in places that aren’t hot, and humid, otherwise gross and crawling with bugs. And camping? No. I like to pee and sleep inside. These things are important. Very, very important.

      1. You make a lot of sense. Peeing and sleeping inside are the best!

    I have been to Vegas – more than once, have no desire to return ever again. Not worth it. There are casinos much closer to home if you want to gamble, and concerts too for that matter. But the crowds *shutters* and noise – the constants clinging and clanging of the slot machines – ah, no! I so agree with you on that one.
    Being a person with a phobia about falling, I am totally with you on the cliff diving, bungee jumping and sky diving. Keep my feet firmly on the ground – thank you very much. Rain Forest and Australia – I don’t mind spiders. πŸ˜€ But, desensitization therapy? Ah, no! Interesting list, not to mention interesting subject.

  7. Bronwyn says:

    You can go to the Rain Forest and Australia for me. πŸ˜€

    I think the only way I’d go to Vegas is if someone kidnapped me…

    Vegas is okay. It’s hot. But…it’s not terrible. And why would you include MOUNTAIN CLIMBING. I freaking love that and would have loved to have been a guide…oh well. More mountains for me to climb. (I consider it a vacation to climb one). I love you anyways, if for no other reason, your aversion to clowns and spiders…nuke them all from space.
