Okay, okay. Some I wasn't sure. Some I've done similar things. I.e., #134: I've never walked the Golden Gate Bridge. I've walked the Brooklyn Bridge, though. And #159 - I've never had sex in a moving train. But I've done a lot of other stuff in a moving car. And #94 - I have no way of knowing whether I've made anyone dizzy just by kissing them. I guess if anyone who's ever kissed me ever finds this site, you could clear that up. But that doesn't seem like a good thing. Maybe more of a halitosis thing.

01 sounds fascinating and fun. Tell the story some time.

Oh, and I demand photographic proof of 10, 33, 37, and 119. And if you DO provide photographic proof, I guess it counts as 80.

At 9:49 PM, Blogger Jen(nifer) said...

Ok, I saw this before...

But now that Katie did it I must as well. I am nowhere near as exciting though I am sure.

We will see...

OE: #1 had something to do with a dead bar and me living upstairs from it (that would be BJ's Downwind Cafe in Fredonia, New York... an hour south of Buffalo.) It also involved a newly cashed student loan check and the recent end of breastfeeding (let's mix a few thousand bucks and Katie being allowed to drink after a year! Whooo! Drinks for all my friends!)The rest? You WISH I'd had photographic proof. Other people might- somewhere- and god help us if they want to blackmail me!

Jen: Puhleeeeeez! I'm sure you've built up a few stories to tell. Oh wait, you're a Republican! Those people aren't allowed to have lives, I'm sorry, I forgot... (joking, of course. I kid because I love!)

But seriously -- you talked about it for two seconds in your blog, but no linkage when the text indicated linkage. Whattup, girlfriend?!

At 10:34 PM, Blogger Jen(nifer) said...

I put it up, it took a little time.

: )


At 10:53 PM, Blogger Katie said...

Yes, gentle readers, ARRESTED. That had something to do with Halloween night, I think 1998? in Athens, GA. I'm not sure... and some hippie kids on a corner asking me to help them role a joint - only they were narcs... - and I HAD no weed, didn't even get to ENJOY the motherfucking shit, but the cops caught me red handed with THEIRS... but, ah, I guess I'll make a post about it. In the end, it cost me thousands and thousands of dollars in fine money and six months probation. And granted me the dubious street cred of having been able to say that yes, I was once arrested.

Things Katie hasn't done, but Brooks has - A list.

11. Bungee jumped
16. Gone to a huge sports game
31. Asked out a stranger
48. Had two hard drives for your computer
54. Danced with a stranger in a foreign country
55. Watched wild whales
67. Benchpressed your own weight
70. Pretended to be a superhero
74. Scuba diving
90. Gotten married
110. Been to Las Vegas
116. Bought a house
144. Petted a stingray
149. Broken a bone
155. Fired a rifle, shotgun, or pistol
160. Had a snake as a pet
185. Killed and prepared an animal for eating
188. Communicated with someone without a common language
194. Sold your own artwork to someone who didn't know you

Oh, and the road vehicle that I went over 100 on was a motorcycle.
When did you see Siouxsie and the Banshees? I saw them in 1984.

At 1:27 PM, Blogger Audacity said...

You lived in Athens, but never went to a huge sporting event? Blasphemous.

At 3:33 PM, Blogger Katie said...


I saw Siouxsie in the original Lollapalooza (1991) in Barry, Ontario (near Toronto) at some place called the Molson something or other - Arena? Park? Something. I saw a few shows there, acually, but I still can't remember the name. It's been a while.


1) No sporting events in Athens could be considered HUGE. I was thinking World Series or Yankees vs. Socks playoffs, maybe Superbowl huge. The Dawgs just don't get that big. If you count that as big, well, damn! I guess I oughta bold it.

2) And yeah, I was definitley blasphemous in not attending a single Bulldogs game. I DID, however, make an awful lot of money serving the tables of drunken alumni in the Georgia Center on the UGA campus. More money to pay off the probation fine, eh?

At 6:08 PM, Blogger Audacity said...

Ok, maybe you're right. I went to LSU game last and considering that UGA was 3.5 favorite and they went on to kick LSU's ass by 29 points.. I considered it huge. But in the scheme of things, perhaps only the Olympics and Championship games should count for this list.

At 6:09 PM, Blogger Audacity said...

And by the looks of my last comment and all its missing words, clearly I have not recovered from yesterday.

At 6:42 PM, Blogger Me said...

Now that I see how much I haven't done in life, I am most depressed. Thanks Katie!

At 6:15 PM, Blogger Grandpere said...


Wow, Katie... you've done a lot of things your old Dad never knew! But that's cool. You're a wonderful person after all.

But I am totally blown away by how so many people find the TIME to do all this blogging. I love your writing... you are always political or satirical or funny or informative ... ALIVE and I checked out a few of your favorite bloggers, and loved them too, but I find it difficult just to be reading all this stuff, much less writing it! x's and o's to you, T, and K.

At 7:59 PM, Blogger Grandpere said...

LOL again, Katie! I just read your opening "Warning"... once again, and I guess we know where you got your "reckless use of ellipses" from! ROFLMAO Still love ya, daughter.
