Nope, Haven't Done That!

There have been lots of posts on goals and reflections lately. It's got my brain cooking ... in a sideways direction.

So, here's a list of things, I've NEVER done and have NO plans to do...
  • watched an episode of The Simpsons, The Walking Dead, or Game of Thrones
  • finished a full cup of coffee (I tried, I really did, but, yuck!!!)
  • finished a full beer (double yuck!!!)
  • finished a Rubik's Cube
  • played in a real hockey game (yes, I'm still allowed to be a Canadian)
  • dyed my hair
  • made perogies from scratch 
  • held a gun
  • eaten a pickle
  • slept 8 hours in a row (although I'd love to do this!)
  • had a pedicure, a manicure, or a facial
  • karaoke 
How about you? What things have you NOT done that might surprise people?

  1. This list made me smile, Jemi. I'm going to have to think about this. But some of the things on your list are true for me, like holding a gun, playing hockey, watching those shows you mentioned. Fun idea! Happy New Year!

  2. Ha, number one on your list made me remember the time when I wrote an essay in English class about being the only person in the world who hadn't seen ET! I think a lot of people who know me as the pseudo-hippie Deadhead type would be surprised to learn that I never did hallucinogenics--never did anything more than weed, in fact, which I didn't like.

    Happy New Year!

    1. LOL - like me with far too many movies!!
      I've never even tried a cigarette - should have added that :)

  3. There's only two of those I've never done - hockey and perogies. (What are perogies?) And yes, I have finished a Rubik's Cube. Fastest time was 1:30 minutes.

    I've never had a tattoo and don't plan on ever getting one.

    Happy New Year!

    1. Perogies are awesome!!
      They might be spelled differently (pierogies???) but they are delicious. A dough pocket filled with cheese and mashed potatoes or lots of other options. We buy them from the ladies at the local Ukrainian church. So good!

  4. LOL. Why didn't I think of this post? I've never drank more a sip of beer. Ewww! Never watched Grey's Anatomy. Never watched The Simpson's either of Seinfeld.

    1. Beer really is awful - don't know how everyone else in my family stands it! :P
      I've never watched Grey's either!

  5. I'm thinking about my own "I've Never Done That" list. Jumped out of airplane is one. I did see one very long, very tedious Game of Thrones episode, so I have to cross that off my list. This list is going to take me some time. I'll come back later.

    1. Yay - can't wait. I haven't done the airplane either - although I've got a niece who has done it!

  6. What an interesting list. I have done quite a few of the things on your list (like eat pickles and watch The Simpsons and Game of Thrones). But there are lots of things I have never done. Never bungee jumped, never watched the Kardashians, never gotten a tattoo, etc... Lots to think about. :)

    1. Don't have a tattoo either - and I wouldn't know a Kardashian if I met one on the street :)

  7. Enjoyed seeing your list, but I can't imagine never having a cup of coffee, being the addict I am. I don't know the last time I've slept 8 hours either. Happy New Year!

    1. I love the smell of coffee grinds, but the taste is a total turn off for some reason.
      Hope 2017 is kind and gentle for you!

  8. I have an anxiety attack just looking at a Rubik's cube. No on the hockey and Walking Dead. Everything else - guilty. I've never snorkeled. Fish gross me out. Let them stay on their side of the glass at the aquarium or battered and on my plate. Happy New Year, J.

    1. LOL - I'd try snorkelling, just haven't been anywhere warm enough to do it! :P

  9. Hey Jemi, interesting concept. I agree on many of your 'never dones', but want to tell you you're missing out by not having a pedicure, a manicure, or a facial. Dreamy as...Happy New Year!!

    1. LOL - maybe one of these days I'll give one of them a try! :)

  10. And you're totally missing out on Game of Thrones, plus the pickle. Pickles are awesome!

    1. The smell of pickles sends me running! Don't like Dill at all :) My kids think I'm nuts!!

  11. yep, that pretty much counts for me too, expect the pickles and WalkingDead part :) Game of Thrones is the biggest crap in history of TV, so you ain't missing much, and Simpsons needed to die like twenty years ago :)

    1. I definitely couldn't watch Walking Dead. I'd never sleep again!! :)

  12. I think the reason you have never done karaoke is because you have never finished a full beer!
