la liste

In order to keep my sights focused on making the most of summer (and not letting it slip too quickly through my fingers as a result of getting caught-up in meaningless business), I’ve compiled a list of things to do between now and September.

Just about all of them would be improved with good company, so please consider this an open call for partners-in-crime.  Want to join me?  Send me a note/email (or comment on this post), and let’s go!

In no particular order…

  1. go sailing on Lake Ontario (nb)
  2. revise my MRP; submit it to conferences/publications
  3. build something
  4. visit Casa Loma (sc)
  5. visit Fort York
  6. go to a concert (crowdsurf?) (nb)
  7. bungee jump (ef)
  8. canoe/camp/portage in Algonquin Park (ch + mb)
  9. visit NYC
  10. ride a streetcar from one end of the line to the other; buy a snack/coffee at either end (tp + sc)
