Thursday Thirteen #11 - 13 Things I'd Never Do

13 random things that I would NEVER EVER want to do:

1. Eat liver (or any other organ meat for that matter)

2. Bungee jump

3. Streak a major sporting event

4. Mountain bike - riding a bicycle down a steep rocky wooded mountain sounds like a clear death wish to me.

5. Wear the same size I wore in high school (I do work out and am trying to lose weight, but I'm also trying to come to terms with my aging body)

6. Shave my head

7. Pierce anything other than my already-done ears

8. Get a tattoo. No unnecessary needles thanks.

9. Swim with sharks (are they CRAZY?!?)

10. Wear a bikini (see #5 above)

11. Live in a house without an oven (we nearly bought a place once that had a gorgeous kitchen - but no oven!)

12. Get a face lift. I saw a documentary on how they do it years ago and am grossed out to this day. No way, no how.

13. Give up chocolate. Of course not! Could you?

What would you never do?

ha ha!!! i wouldn't do any of those either!!! great list this week!

HomeSchool Mommy said...

I like your TT! I wouldn't do most of those things, either. I can think of a lot of other things I wouldn't do, too.

Christine said...

No tattoos thank you. No bikini's either. Yup, pretty much agreed with your list.

I'm all about lessons learned this week over at

Nicholas said...

I've often done 1, wouldn't mind trying 2 and 4, but agree with you about the rest.

Christine said...

LOL! I completely agree with your list. You won't catch me doing any of those things either.
Especially #13, or wear a bikini.

Happy Thursday Robin!

Coco said...

I think I wouldn't do most of the things in your list as well... though the thought of bungee jumping sounds interesting sometimes... hmmm...

Tilly Greene said...

#9 is on my list as well, no flipping way!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Liver?? The Tour Manager's grandmother once brought chopped liver INTO MY HOUSE. I was so revolted, I told him in no uncertain terms that if she ever does it again, I'm asking her to take it back to the car. No liver in my house!

As for some of the others... I'd try some of them. Nope on the bikini, though -- I'm a tankini sort of girl. Preferably with board shorts. *grin*

And no, Trevor does NOT have a mullet. His hair is long, it's brown, it's one length, and it's perfectly straight and boring. So to compensate, he lets it grow to his waist before chopping it off -- to just around his shoulder blades.

This Eclectic Life said...

Good list, and I agree with them all. I tried eating cow tongue in El Paso once. They had it labeled "lengua," but I knew what it was. Thought I'd be adventurous. It was not unpleasant, until the waiter mentioned the sight of all the tongues hanging in the cooler! I would never ever eat it again.

Carmen said...

My friend's mom got a face lift, and it fell a few weeks later. She looked like a stroke victim. I like my face the way it is, thanks. :)

Gattina said...

But liver tastes very good ! Roasted and with a lot of onions ! My cats could kill for liver !

Dragonheart said...

Fun list! My mom says she wouldn't go bungee jumping, but she does wear bikinis, and if her marathon in Hamburg at the end of the month goes well, she wants to get a tattoo to celebrate.

Thanks for visiting. :)

Ciar Cullen said...

I'd never bungee jump AGAIN. Never. Ever.

Raggedy said...

I would not do any of those things on your list either!
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

alisonwonderland said...

great TT! i'd have to agree with almost all of your list - although i'm leaving myself open the idea of someday being adventurous to do #2 and #4 and #9. it might happen! :o)

i'm absolutely with you on #13! lol.

happy thursday! thanks for stopping by!

she said...

I've already done so many things on your list.

I frequently shave my head for charity events - it's such a small thing to do and it'll grow back.

Lazy Daisy said...

I could "Amen" all of those.

Mercy's Maid said...

I've done two of your 13. :) Fun idea for a list!

FRIGGA said...

7, 8 and 10 I would do or did do, but I'm with you on the rest.

Himself said...

I'm with you right down the line. I wouldn't mind getting down to my HS weight, but it probably won't happen. Also couldn't live without an oven, and have no holes in my body I wasn't born with. I would add "run with the bulls in Pamplona." And probably a few others if I took the time to think about it.

impworks said...

I'd go with 12 out of 13 of those but I've eaten liver and as with all blogs that mention food I'm now thinking about getting something to eat again :-)

Fairly Odd Mother said...

Great list! I'd never jump out of a plane (way too scared of heights), or have an affair (too scared of what the fallout would be).

Shana said...

Hey Robin- my list would be exactly the same as yours!!!

I hope you have an amazing time in the states!

Hugs, Shana :)

Lady G~ said...

What a great list! My Abuela (LOL!) tried to trick me once and told me that what she was serving me was steak. I took one bite and tried to eat it, but threw up... it was liver. Needless to say, I have never tried liver again. YUCK to ANY body organ!

I would bungee jump in a heart beat. Except since I've had two brain surgeries, I'm not allowed. :o(

NO WAY would I EVER streak. I did go topless once at a lake in Germany, but no one was around, except my Knight. Does that even count? hee hee hee

Mountain biking- the thrill seeker in me would say YES! But my docs say NO!

I was all of 93 lbs. at 18 years of age. I wouldn't want to go back to that! No thanks!

Had to shave my head twice for my brain surgeries. Bandanas are very KEWEL looking! ;o)

As for piercing...two per ear is all I car to have.

I would sooooo get a little tatoo! BUT, that COULD set a precedent for my children. I don't want to go down that road. :o)

Native Floridian here! I only go toe deep in the water. Do you know that some sharks can swim in ankle deep water?!

No bikinis for me. :o)

What!? No oven?! How can that be?!

I worked for 3 plastic surgeons for a couple of years. I would NOT want to have elective plastic surgery.

Give up chocolate? Who would be that crazy?!

Thanks for letting me partake in your TT. I had great fun!

Got to tell you, it was a blessing to check my blog and see a comment from you. Thanks for your thoughtful words.
