things I have never done - a meme

The wonderful Melli made a comment on one of my recent posts asking me if there was anything I had not ever done....and would it even fill one Thursday Thirteen....?

Then the wonderful Craziequeen, across the pond commented on Melli's comment (lol), and said she thought that this "things I have never done" list would make a very interesting post....So, I have been thinking about that and decided to give this one a try....! So, here it is....:

1) I have never married.
2) I have never had any children.
3) I have never had an abortion.
4) I have never climbed the Materhorn or been to the Alps.
5) I have never been to Italy or Spain or Israel...among many other country's....that could add up to 100 right there...
6) I've never been to Michigan or Montana or Missouri....
7) As I said to Melli---I've never murdered anyone.
8) I've never sipped a Martini, or a Manhatten or a Cosmpolitan...
9) I've never done Heroin....(Thank God!)
10) I've never worn a bikini---so there Kirstie...
11) I've never eaten a Frogs leg, or Venison....
12) I've never been to The Bahamas or Panama or Japan or China
13) I've never been to Tahiti. either...(but I did meet Marlon Brando).....Note To Self: Blog About Brando....
14) I've never met Barbara Streisand or Judy Garland or Frank Sinatra or Steve McQueen or Greer Garson or Tony Curtis or....well, that could fill up 100 Thursday Thirteen's....
15) I've never been to a Nascar Race or any other kind of Car Racing Event...
16) I've never been to The Kentucky Derby or The Preakness or The Belmont Stakes---Whatever-It-Is-Called.....
17) I've never been to The Crystal Cathedral....
18) I've never been Skiing and don't ever intend to either....
19) I've never been to The White House.
20) I've never been to Greece.
21) I've never been to Turkey.
22) I've never eaten Eel.
23) I've never eaten a Very Hot Hot 5 Star Indian Dinner!
24) I've never visited Seattle, Washington.
25) I've never grown Marijuana...(but I know people who have...Note To Self: Don't blog about that, no matter what!
26) I've never seen a Moose or a Bison.....
27) I've never eaten Moose or Bison, either....
28) I've never been part of a "threesome". Note To Self: Don't even consider doing that now, please.....!
29) I've never had an affair with an Asian.
30) I've never cooked a Lobster or Clams or Crabs or Mussels.....
31) I've never dressed up like a "clown".
32) I've never made Creme Brule.
33) I've never eaten Pigs Feet.
34) I've never seen a Llama
35) I've never played Golf.

Well, that's probably 50 or more things right there that I have "never" done, dear Melli....and I assure you....I could probably think of another 50, easy....!
Hey, how about some of you doing this one, too....?


Let's call it "The I Never Meme...."

And you are all tagged, if you wanna be.....!


More To Come.....(Maybe)......

Hi Naomi, very amazing your meme!
But I think this list is endless, and it is only limited by our imagination, isn’t? There are many things we never ever did it yet!! My list is soooo big!!! Lol!

Oooh, good list! I've never done a lot of your "never dones" too, Naomi, and some you have - like meeting Marlon Brando - and PLEASE do blog about him.

I'm first! YAY!!!

I love your "first" MEME - you did well! I really enjoyed reading this. I appreciate your honesty and your humor so much...many of your items hold great significance for me. I've done a few of these things (like get married), but I didn't do so til I was 46...HAHA.

Now you've got some "things" to strive for, right???

Great post.

Mine Sat. Photo is up.

I have never done 18 of the same things you have never done, but I have done 17 of them. I have eaten bison and venison. seen a llama, and been in the White House, but not all at the same time.

Naomi, you're indirectly mentioned in my post today. I wonder if you will recognize yourself.

This sounds like a fun meme to do....I may have to try it!!

You've never had a martini? You must try one! lol

Have a great weekend my friend!

Love those!! I am gonna send you some bison and some venison. You don't know what you're missing....JOKE!! Blech, you're not missing much, let me tell ya.

Loved all those "note to self"'s. That was a great post. And i'm glad you've never killed anyone. =) I might steal this one.

Good job! I'm relieved you've never done #7 :)

I've done 1 (twice ... ha!), 8, 12, 18, 30 and 34 (I went llama trekking three times).

Well, I have been to Italy, been married and had a child but I've never met any celebrity.... I have to take that back... I know my brother and met the cast of Phantom.

Reminds me of the lyrics to a song....
I've never been to Spain, but I've been to Oklahoma....

It's about time you do something about your nr 5, like Spain :)
Very interesting list.
Funny! remember the old friend I told you about?? he is from Michigan so I have been to Michigan, lol.
I knew Martini as the sweet wine to have before dinner. Once when I was 20 and was just in college in the US we decided to get all dressed up (3 girls) to go out to eat. I ordered a Martini. The kind I knew from home. The waiter looked at me like "are your sure?". I couldn't drink it! lol.
#25. I just read Spain is the place after Holland where the most plants are grown. It is legal up to 5 plants )5!) and you actually see them on people's balconies.
Give me some time and I will do this meme. Sounds like fun! happy saturday :)

hi Naomi..

well now.. that's one hellava list! hahahah
What can I tell you? Oh, I know! Frogs legs taste like chicken!

I've been married once and had 2 kids..(no abortions)

I wore a bikini until I was 52 (then the body went to hell in an handbag! no cheering for the change of life here!)

I've never murdered anyone either, though at times when my kids were young and being made to eat something they didn't like you'd have thought I did..heh.

this is a good meme.. I may try it.

I'm a tiny bit surprised you've never been to the Crystal Cathedral since it's so close. I've actually been there believe it or not...lol! Oh, and you'll have to make creme brulee someday - it's a lot easier than it looks. ;)

Gooood LORD you made this look too easy! I SHOULD have made you do it the way we played it at my first baby shower! (given for me by a friend) She made us all say something that we had NEVER done - but that we were sure everyone else there HAD done! THAT was hard! One girl had NEVER filled an ice cube tray!!! (she won!) LOL! But anyway... yea... I'm up for this Meme! I haven't done MOST of what you've never done... I have eaten venison - and bison. I've seen bison and Llama's -- as a matter of fact, we have a llama farm just down the road a ways. And I've definately sipped a martini AND a cosmopolitan -- but never a manhattan! And I've never been... well... never mind! I'll include that in MY list! Look for it this week! (maybe Monday or Tuesday!)

Oh my, I've actually done quite a few of the things on your list that you have never done. Don't worry, they weren't the threesome, heroin, abortion or marijuana ones either. *grin* I'll have to try this. Watch for it, don't know how long it will take to get it posted.

i like the never Meme too, ....

you've met Marlon Brandon, kool, yes a Post about that would be great...i met Donald Sutherland once and sat and talked for him for the duration of a 2 hour ferry ride, but no one believes me (well, my sister does, because she was on the ferry with me at the time, and saw him before i dashed off to talk to him).

anyway, come over to Flamingos's Hideaway when you have time.

cheers for now,

Great list! I have eaten pigs feet. Pickled pigs feet too! I have eaten venison. I have seen a Llama. Lots of the things you haven't done I haven't done either! I have wore a bikini but I'd sure hate to have to try and squeeze into one now. Lordy, what a sight that would be. LOL !!!!

Very interesting Naomi!!

Lol ! Long list ! Now you should start to do what you have never done ! I would suggest the frog legs for example or let a nice canabis plant grow (I have done this without knowing it, lol) it really smells very good and our cats loved it (I wrote about that some time ago under "The plant") Most of the things in your list I have done and Italy for me of course is no secret. Besides my german passport I also have the italian. So I am officially Italian too ! Two of my cats are belgian and two british ! Isn't that an international family ?

Last time I forgot to mention I bought my last bikini about 3 years ago (way over 40 yo, lol) thinking: it's not going to get any better ! I wear it to go swimming at home, we have a little pool.
Happy sunday :)

you need to come to the Appalachians- we'll cook you up some venison!:) IN fact, it's deer season right now. i've never eaten moose or bison, either, but i have eaten bear meat while visiting Maine. it was pretty gross but i didn't want to offend our hosts and say so! :)

What an interesting meme. We learn much about our blog friends by reading these.
I never met Judy Garland either, however through my genealogy research I learned that she was my fourth cousin. We both descend from William Fitzpatrick.
Small world!
I have not only cooked muscles, clams, and crab but have even gathered them at the beach.
Fried Horse clam necks are the best.

There are a scary number of things I have never done - I don't think i could ever list them all!

i suppose it might be fun to do a "I have never, but I want to do..." list

i hve done some of your never's, and haven't done some too;-)

yo MUST have seen a Llama somewhere surely? In a zoo? a farm? We have quite a lot of Llama farms round here - In fact we park next to one every time we go kite flying:-)

I like this form of meme: it's so much more illuminating and personal than the usual Q&A-type memes.

I've got to give this a try! Thanks for the inspiration, Naomi. As always, you've pointed me in a more fruitful direction.
