From the Pile

September 26, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

It isn’t news to anyone that Amy and I will be spending every waking hour with each other for the next 365 days. Talking with a good friend Henry Pile he suggested ways we could keep things fresh. One of those ways was to keep a list  that we would complete on the trip when we were bored, needed a break or just frankly needed a laugh.

We have a list of 12 and a pair of dice that will determine which one we do. We are looking for some help  completeting our list of 24. Leave a comment with your suggestion! We will be documenting the success or failure of each item along the way.

Some examples of our list include;

  • hug an old lady
  • give a flower to a stranger
  • buy me chocolate
  • stop what we are doing and enjoy a cafe
  • take a picture with a random group of people

    What about something along the lines of: purchasing coffee and sitting down for a conversation with a stranger—or eating a meal with a group of strangers.

    Take a picture of the moment. You will not get it back if you do not get it right at that time.

    Enjoy a long two-minute kiss (or longer).

    Take a collection of “fun” pictures of yourselves (FOR yourselves) under the covers in whichever place you stay at night. (Not in a dirty way, unless you want to of course – but clean, fun pictures and just for you guys! (Ie. Later you can caption one of the pics – “Walters in bed with Uganda!” Then when you get back, you’ll have a year of pics of yourselves staying in different places in different beds, but always together in one photo album just for you!)

    jump in largest fountain in each city / swim in the Thames / eat something that you wouldn’t normally try (like fried grasshoppers in Thailand, blood sausage) / Turkish bath house / have a slap fight (or pillows if you all ain’t hard enough) / draw portraits of each other.
