day 2: "More List Yourself"

A couple of entries from the second chapter of More List Yourself: Listmaking as the Way to Personal Discovery.

Chapter Two: Your Style

List the sexually experimental activities you'd like to try. way I'd write down online answers to the above! Anyway, what's meant by "experimental"? Just something not done before? I suppose that's it. For me, nothing kinky and nothing involving other females.

The only thing sort of cryptic sounding that I'd respond is...I liked the idea of one of the "options" presented in Stephen Spielberg's A.I. You'll have to watch it.

List what you've been known to do when you've lost your inhibitions.
Again, I can't think of any provactive answers for this. One thing I definitely do differently if my inhibitions are down is talk more. I'm usually pretty tight lipped.

Once in college, after I and some friends went to Bourbon Street, New Orleans one evening, I drank way too much. We ended up in a gay dance club/bar and I danced. I don't dance usually (that was the first and only time...except when I'm imitating So You Think You Can Dance? people in front of Jerry), but did after half a million drinks. I think I finally "fell out" and was escorted/carried from the club, and deposited on a curb!

Also, if I've drunk too much and my inhibitions are lower, I might feel less self conscious about suggesting activities.
and, finally,

List what talents you'd most like to have.

Sort of like a "if you had three wishes..." kind of question. Hmm...
  • I'd like to have the ability to speak, read, write, and understand all the world's languages, past and present. That's a pretty big wish!
  • I'd like to be able to play all musical instruments at a virtuoso level.
  • I'd like to play snare drum for the Shotts and Dykehead Pipe Band in Scotland.
  • I'd like to be rich and famous, though not INfamous.
