So, I got to thinking a while back about several things that I either want to be, want to have, or want to see... But will never happen... But would still be wicked cool.
1. Have a car with a Daft Punk theme: Case in point. If you've never heard of Daft Punk, then you probably wouldn't like them anyway. They're a pair of guys who do electronica dance music and are totally wicked cool. It would be even better if I had a car with a Daft Punk theme so that I could show my total geekness when blaring their techno-disco-electronica music that makes me tap my little nerdy feet. That, and it can't get any better unless they were doing the soundtrack to the new Tron movie-- Oh, wait... They are. Because they frikkin' rock.
2. Meet a ninja: Like I really have to elaborate on this, but I will for posterity's sake. Meeting a ninja would be awesome. Scratch that... MORE than awesome, because there's not a word in the English dictionary to describe it properly and do it justice. And not just some wussy little guy in PJs who can run up a wall. No, a living, breathing, bear-fighting, star-throwing, lived-up-in-the-mountains-for-twenty-years-on-rice-and-water-for-purity-of-body-and-spirit kind of ninja. Yeah. One of those.
3. Become a successful novelist: Anybody who really knows me will know this one. Why will it never happen? I have far too many ideas that will never mesh well together and I tend to forget them ten minutes later. I suppose I could make short stories and write all my ideas down on a pad of paper or something, but I would probably end up throwing the notebook away or something equally as dumb, so I've conceded to my fate as a computer repair specialist; it's much easier that way.
4. Win the lottery: I seriously don't need to elaborate on this one, guys; if I do, you're an idiot worthy of being flogged in the streets. But, I will say that if I ever did win the lottery, I would probably drop to part-time, buy a new car (see #1), buy a place of my own, pay off my bills, and tuck the rest away for a rainy day. I know I tend to spend some of my money on idiotic crap that will serve no higher purpose than to entertain me for a few hours and never be touched again, but I have become a little more fiscally responsible over the years.
5. Become a famous singer: Everybody who's heard me sing says that I have a great singing voice. I, personally, think I'm okay, but I highly doubt I'd make Simon's cut on American Idol. Besides, I can't sing worth a crap when I'm nervous and I'm almost always nervous about something when presenting anything that could be considered talent to my friends and family, much less the entirety of America-- or the world, for that matter.
