"8. Meet Orlando Bloom"

DEFINITELY. Or Chad Michael Murray.

I also want to:
Be in a Harry Potter movie, but since you have to be from the UK, I'll settle for just meeting the cast.
Go to Antarctica and every continent
Climb a mountain. A tall one.
Get an exotic animal for a pet, or just a llama
Go bungee jumping too, and skydiving
Have a landmark named after me
Be in a well known band

And some other things...Too lazy to think them up right now, but I hope you achieve all your goals!

It's all irrelevant once you're dead.
I want to be a famous gastrointestinal photographer of the stars.

I just want to be happy, travel a bit and perhaps prove my abilities to myself by writing a pretty spiffy book.

You dirty materialists. (Then again, I should've expected that here.) =p

I have a few weird goals before I die.
1) You know how in musicals, people randomly break out into song in the middle of a street or crowded area, and everyone aroudn them picks up the song and knows the dance perfectly? Before I die, I want to randomly break out into song in public and see how many people pick it up. They may throw me in a mental institution for this, but it would be fun.
2) I want to work on a cruise ship. Their staff get great benefits, like a personal movie theatre and parties just for the staff!
3) I want to work at the Shepherd of the Hills theatre.
4) My friend and I have vowed to try every single Tropical Sno flavor before we die.
