Life List Update

Some recent additions to my life to-do list...the under the sea edition.

I came across this video on the beautiful and inspiring photography blog, chookooloonk.

So, yeah, I need to do that.

The most recent addition to my list was, awkwardly enough, inspired by an episode of Dateline that I watched the other day. In this particular edition of Real Life Mysteries, Dateline's investigative team delved into the mysterious death of a young newlywed on her honeymoon.  It seems that the freshly  minted husband, a certified rescue diver, had convinced his young bride that they should take a scuba trip to the Great Barrier Reef for their honeymoon. Oh, and also, she should increase her life insurance policy and make him the sole beneficiary. You can see where this is going...sadly, Tina did not and she ended up drowning/being suffocated depending on whose lawyers you are talking to.  Anyway, I was less interested in the "mystery" than I was in the site of the dive that the couple was on. They were diving off the coast of Queensland, Australia and were exploring the wreck of the S.S. Yongala, a passenger ship that sank in 1911. It looks super cool, and I'm sure it's perfectly safe assuming your husband isn't trying to kill you.

Since both of these adventures will require a large cash infusion, it is unlikely that I will be crossing them off in the near future; but that's why this is a life list, not a do-in-the-next-six-months list.

Oh yeah, and I also decided that I am going to learn all of the words and references in "We Didn't Start the Fire." That's free, maybe I'll tackle that one this weekend...
