What have I never done?

Okay, so if you read yesterday's post you know that I took the opportunity to post about 22 things that I have done. So with my "haves" out of the way I was up late writing about my "have nots".

Oh, and I just have to add that with today (Friday) being my 39th birthday, I think it is perfect timing for these prompts. And I thank Mama Kat for giving me the slight shove in this direction so I would have something on my permanent record. Maybe I should do this again next year and see if I've added any of my have nots to my have list? Although honestly, I am pretty sure I won't want to do most of them. Or I won't be able to. Hmmn. So maybe my goal is to find a new list of 22 haves by October 28, 2012? My last year of my 30s. Okay, so this is turning into a totally different kind of post ...

Anyway, back to the point at hand. Check out my two lists. Do they compare? Which list is better? You tell me what you think:

I've never seen an episode of Desperate Housewives.
(or Grey's Anatomy.)

I've never had any part of my body waxed.

I've never dyed my hair. Not yet, anyway.

I've never gone camping, not the true kind where you sleep in a tent... (someone's backyard does not count!)

I've never liked champagne.

I've never had a driver's license.

I've never had a one night stand.

I've never read any of the Twilight books.

Or seen the movies. (Or care to!)
(Should that be one entry? Fine I've never read Harry Potter, either.)

I've never been to Israel. But plan to get there one day.

I've never been to the top of the Statue of Liberty.

I've never been to a strip club.

I've never eaten caviar or escargot. And never will.

I've never caught a fish. Or if I did I blocked it out!
I am starting to think I might have, so I'll add a new one just in case ...

I've never had bangs as an adult (not since I had a horrible haircut in junior high that butchered the crown of my head!).

I've never finished the NY Times crossword puzzle. Though I honestly don't think I have ever tried.

I've never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.

I've never gone water skiing.

I've never mooned anyone.

I've never drank an entire beer.

I've never learned how to read/speak Hebrew. But I hope to some day.

I've never eaten real (non-veggie) sushi.

I've never seen Gone With The Wind in it's entirety. (A small thank you to Modern Family for that one!)
So there you have it. My 22 NEVERS. Did you write yours? Let me know. Do we have any in common? Any of mine you have done that I totally should?

Except Twilight. I mean it, people, I'm not going there.


  1. I've never seen Gone with the Wind either... Girl's Night??? Or Twilight... what? we won't read the same books either- SHOCKING!!! :)

    I have never been to a strip club, but there is one on your list that I never thought I'd do and did and then thought I was doing again, but wasn't. ;)

    We should do a Sorta Southern Good Girl takes NY trip and hit the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty... I've been, but not to the top and I've never been to Ellis Island.

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday!

    This is a great list.

    I've not seen Twilight either, but have seen Gone with the Wind.

  3. Happy birthday! I have never seen Gone with the Wind either but want to. I have seen and read the Twilight books and movies. I didn't think I'd like them but I do.

  4. Happy Birthday!!! Welcome to 39 :) I have also never watched Greys or Desperate Housewives, never mooned anyone, been to a strip club,or seen the last 3 Twilight movies. I love sushi, and I have, unfortunately, had some one night stands. Great list, always good to know more about you!

  5. Cute blog and love this idea - have done more of your 'have nots' than your 'haves'!

  6. I have never seen Grays either but besides a few things I have done most of your "have nots" lol :) Happy Birthday!

  7. I've never done most of those things either. A few of them though.


  8. Happy Birthday Andrea,

    I've never seen Twilight, Harry Potter, or desperate housewives. I have eaten escargot, and it tastes like chewy garlic butter LOL.

    Anyway, Enjoy your 39th birthday. Lucky you it fell on a Friday.


  9. Happy Birthday! I read Gone With the Wind twice...then saw the movie. I did go camping in a tent when I was a kid and do not plan to go ever again

  10. I have to say I have done quite a few of your "never haves", but I'm 20 years older than you. I do have a few tings I've never done that I still hope to do. In another 10 years it will be interesting to see what you check off of this list. Happy Birthday

  11. I'm totally shocked about the driver's license, however I have another blogger friend who got her first license just a couple months ago!

    And Grey's Anatomy...don't start now. It's AWFUL this year!

  12. I strongly recommend Escargot and Grey's Anatomy from the first season on Netflix - you are really missing out!!!

  13. happy happy happy happy happy happy birthday!!! Love to you today (well, that day, I'm late!!) and every day!

  14. So many of the same nevers....books and movies...all the same! Although, have been nearby when a Twilight movie was being watched in my house, the parts I saw were not as horrible as would have expected. No one night stand, no strip club, but have definitely had a whole beer (and then some) used to love sushi, but as of a week ago will only do the veggie the span of two days heard of 3 people (close friends of friends) that are having issues with post sushi consumption (one is on organ donor list from a parasite from sushi, in San Fran...not even in the Midwest!) I feel it's a cautionary tale to share. Happy belated birthday xoxox
