A list of things three people want to do before they die...
[Introduction] I was sitting at my desk staring out of the window a couple of months ago and wondering about the future.

What would it hold for me?

How could I get done what I wanted to?

You know... the usual!

Then I realised that, appart from finishing University and getting a degree in Nursing (which would lead to a job) I really wasnt sure what I wanted to do with the rest of my life...

Now some people might think that a lifelong carear prospect is plenty to be getting on with, but those who know me well know that I'm forever on the go and am not happy unless I push back the limits of common sense and time useage to new levels...

So I put my head together with two of the best friends I could ever have, and we came up with a list of 100 things (some funny, some even serious) that we wanted to do...
