Zest For Life!!

I have been watching a lot of TV and movies. There are a couple of shows that I am totally addicted to. TOTALLY.

My most favorite guilty pleasure is Big Love (HBO). A series centered around a Mormon polygamist family. It has everything! Love, sex, comedy, drama and some pretty twisted characters. The third season ended last Sunday and I am already feeling withdrawal pains! UGH!

Another HBO series I love is True Blood. A new season starts this summer!! Aah Sookie-sookie now! 😉

altonbrownI find myself bouncing between The Food Channel and The Travel Channel. Traveling to beautiful exotic locations and enjoying good food. Can’t go wrong with either option! My favorite shows are Ace of Cakes, Iron Chef America, Good Eats (Alton Brown is a nerdy geek and I LOVE nerdy geeks – AY CARUMBA!!), Paula Dean, and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations.

I can watch these shows all day, every day. But I have an idea that I would like to pitch to one of the cable networks.

At 42, I have a list of things I want to do before I die, a Bucket List sorta, kinda but not really, cause I’m not dying anytime soon. I hope. I pray. 

Maybe I’ll take a video camera to document this beautiful, fabulous, forty something, fit n flirty, African American female fulfilling her Zest For Life list! Oooh, there’s the pitch! Then viewers can submit an item from their own  ZFL list and challenge me to do it. The twist is if I choose their challenge, they’re coming along too!! Cool huh?

greatbarrierreefWhat’s on my list? Glad you asked! 😉

  • Skydiving  – I’ve been told it can be a life changing event or life ending depending on the outcome! LOL
  • Horseback riding – probably not a big deal for the majority of people but for me, uh, not so much. My first experience on a horse was at age 7 and I panicked. Freak the hell out! Kicking and screaming and begging my grandfather to get me off that dayum thing. Prince, the horse, just looked at me like I had lost my mind. I guess I did. Haven’t been on a horse since. I both love and fear what I think to be the most beautiful creature on this earth!
  • White Water rafting – Looks like a good adrenaline rush!
  • Skiing in Colorado
  • Camping in the Florida Keys on the beach – something to be done with a male-homey-lover friend. Though, we might have to leave the cameras at home. 😉
  • Diving in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia

Do you have a Bucket List? If so, what are a few items on your list?

  1. Choc…I love you and all but that bucket list is lame as hell baby. Shit you and I can accomplish 90% of that in one drunkin sex filled week.

  2. LOL@ Minista. It’s funny because I thought of it myself, you just beat me to the punch, is all, lol!
    It’s funny Choc, apart from traveling from the Americas, I’ve done many things that could’ve been on my list, if I had not stumbled on upon them. What I want now, is to write an anthology of short stories, and create the perfect “mix tape, MP3” so that I may make sweet, sweet love to a worthy partner for the duration of the disc, under the stars, while the waves are competing with their own soundtrack –and if we’re not done when the disc is finished, well we play it again, or just let the ocean play solo.
    Was that too specific? I can never tell.
    Alton Brown and Anthony Bourdain are both cool for different reasons. Have you ever read Bourdain’s book, Choc? It’s a good read.

  3. A worthy bucket list, Id say. Good luck on that sky-diving thingy. I’d like to wind-surf and hang-glide, but, I’ve counted out sky-diving and bungie-jumping. I’ve always wanted to ski Colorado, as well, but, not so sure anymore. My biggest wish on the list is to get my poetry published. I get I’d better get on the stick, huh? Lots of luck. Pitch the idea – you never know until you ask. Peace.

  4. @ Min – if I’m drinkin n sexin the things on that list will not get done. Especially if the sexin is good. I’m just saying…. 😉

    @ Wolfie – ::fans face:: Uhmm..that scene on the beach is uh, HAWT!! Whew!!

    @ Freedom – I’m researching the sky-diving. The goal is to have that done before summer’s end. I would say wish me luck but I think I need prayer!!! 😀 😛

    @ Ms.K – Thanks for stopping by girlie!!! 🙂

  5. NICE! The words: “…beautiful, fabulous, forty something, fit n flirty…” got my attention for some reason. Is it you? Is it me? Yes, forty something, certainly fit, although I finished nearly last during the mountain bike race on Saturday, but I did it. I looked over your list, and sadly I will say I have been there, I have done that… The only item left from your list is the skydive and that could likely happen this year… But where does it go from there??? Riding horses was nice, skiing in Colorado was the best, white water rafting was ok, Great Barrier Reef was awesome. I am thinking about Peris CA for the skydive. I recommend reading “BASE 66” – short and interesting book, good inspiration for a first parachute jump 🙂

Have your say.....
