Posted:Is there anything on your lifetime to-do list that you really want to do before you die, that 100 dollars (approx. USD 75, GBP 45) would buy? If yes, are there any good excuses for not having done it already- $100 isn't a lot of money in the big picture.



Not stuff like "I want to buy $100 worth of green beans, break into my bosses house when he's on holiday and plant them in his carpet so that he'll have a luscious sprout rug when he returns.."



Somewhat down to earth, achievable stuff that you've always wanted to do, but just have been procrastinating for some reason- e.g. bungee, buy a leaf blower, have a roasted pig on a spit, go to that classy hotel in the city for high tea, plant a tree outside your window, build a birdhouse, have lunch on that riverboat you always see on the river etc..



I've always wanted to go see Madama Butterfly at the opera. $95. Haven't yet because it's come these parts yet (there is some kind of performing arts infrastructure here, so I'm crossing my fingers). Else one day I'll travel somewhere just to see it.



Haven't been to the opera before either. Have listened to a few arias here and there, but haven't ever been a diehard fan of the genre. Just thought if there was one opera to see, it should be a Puccini.

Posted:bugga... this thread reminded me that I'd always wanted to try hang gliding... but I can't find anywhere that'll do it for < $100... $120 was the best I found...

why does it cost $120 to run off the edge of a cliff? confused

Posted:Another one added to my list. Buy some material and figure out how to use a sewing machine to make something wearable.

I've always put this one off because of not having access to a sewing machine.

gita (housemate)'s just brought back a sewing machine, so here I am.. 6 in the morning. Tired, but determined to figure this out. I'll show what I've got when it's done.

Posted:Dex: Well, half half? I've got another pair of pants very similar, though made with a very light thin material.. think it's a summer thing.

Making it reversible was just a matter of making 2 pairs of pants back to back. Nothing too complicated, considering it's just wrap pants.

I'm just rapt I figured out the sewing machine! ubblol

Probably not the best example, but hope I'm not not making sense ubblol

Actually.. that is true. If I actually did get over there.. I need to plan my great escape! *looks to the skies* smile

Another thing on my list, mini roadtrip. $100 buys about 2 full tanks of petrol (if I'm lucky) and lunch and snacks for 2. I'll put it up as an idea to the next someone special.. Burn some nice music, chuck a mattress and pillows in the back, drive about 500k's some random direction, have a decent meal, spend a day and night there, and drive back. $100 bucks.
