2) Get divorced
3) Have a child
4) Go surfing
5) Be questioned by police during a murder case
6) fly a plane
7) Go absailing of side of a building
Cool Bungee jump

Way to go PJ!  It's sad to say, with my 30th birthday looming (just 5 weeks away) I've accomplished not a one of those things... except go to Disney Land.

Have a ball with what's left PJ!  I've missed the date on that one by more than a decade.  But surely, you couldn't have aimed to get divorced before 30?

i am hiding my coupon because i am obscenely unphotogenic.i am the only lead singer in a crap band to be shoved to the back on photos.not saying i am the only one who SHOULD be pushed to the back.i should be a woman,so sensitive am i that my looks(as they were) have gone with age.every new photo seems to be haunted by the ghost of chins.will send a mugshot as soon as i work out how to.promise it is recent,as in the last month,also promise it will be in a pub.i doubt it will be as alluring as RockChicks.

1) Get married
Oh, I managed that one.
2) Get divorced
Hmmm.  First failure.
3) Have a child
Haven't done that, but I act like one.  Does that count?
4) Go surfing
Fell off right away and the board struck my head.  Surfing's overrated.
5) Be questioned by police during a murder case
It was attempted murder - a stabbing that happened at my neighbour's.  That counts for something!
6) fly a plane
Wouldn't be typing right now if I'd done that.
7) Go absailing of side of a building
That's just insane.
Cool Bungee jump
Think of the potential head trauma if things are set wrong. 
9) Go to disney land
Be real.  I went to Disney World.
10 Wrestle a pro wrestling match in front of an audience,
In other words, you want to be on Jerry Springer's show?

I'm a pretty big failure, judging from your list.  Thanks for making me feel old and inadequate!

Confession is good for the soul but bad for a marriage.  That's why I never admit to anything.

How about a retrospective list of things I DID do by the time I was 40...at least I could pretend I'd achieved something!

Worked as a singing telegram (and no, not a roly-poly one, at least not deliberately)
Wrote a children's play that was performed
Got married and divorced (we both preferred other men)
Abseiled down the inside of Earls Court Exhibition Centre (unlcear how that happened - something to do with the Marines)
Was mistaken for Samantha Fox (hey, we've got a couple of things in common)
Met Mr. Billingham, Noddy Holder, Elvis Costello, Miles Hunt,all of the Boomtown Rats and snogged Martin Fry (ABC) - not on the same day or anything...

Hmmmmm......

I did my first bungee jump at the age of 42. It was such a buzz I wish I'd done it sooner. For my 40th birthday my sister paid for me to do a parachute jump. I was married and divorced by the age of 22 and have since re-married and divorced the same woman. I can't quite figure out why anyone would want to be questioned in connection with a murder   Huh
