The ultimate to do list

There are lots of people in this world that make lists.
I am one of them.
Shopping lists, meal lists, job lists, packing lists, presents lists...
Basically all kinds of lists.
A while back, I saw this film called 'The Bucket List'.
I really liked the idea of an extreme to do list of stuff I want to do before I'm right said Fred.
(That's Cockney rhyming slang for dead by the way.)
So seeing as this is my list, I'm going to add, change or maybe even completely remove items at will.
Life is ever changing, so my list will be the same.
