I've never seen the Rocky Horror Picture show either. I don't think that's a bad thing.

Linda said...

I am NOT scum! (Note that I'm commenting so as not to be scum my first time here!) Loved this list. I just did my first TT. I have to say I do not think it is bad that you have not seen the Rocky Horror thing, and what do you do that allowed you to curse from a pulpit?! Great list.

Dana said...

Wow. If those are the worst things that you have done, I feel I should be locked away.

damozel said...

I was reading along, thinking "What a blameless life!" and then, sandwiched in the middle of one mild peccadillo and the next...You ran away to Australia???

I don't know that this is a bad thing, but it was a bit unexpected!

GarthTrekker said...

I guess I should have clarified - I've never seen Rocky Horror but when everyone talks about it I go along as if I did - isn't that true for most of us? We all do the time warp again! lol. So thanks for checking, Karen. And Linda, thanks for commenting - you aren't scum! Congrats on your first T13. Dana, make your list and let me judge if you should be locked away, hehe. And damozal, I guess I didn't actually run away, but the year as a foreign exchange student felt like freedom at the time! :-)

GarthTrekker said...

Oh and PS - the word from the pulpit was cr*p - it sorta slipped out when I was talking about not using bad language. :-) Lyn

Perri Nelson said...

I never watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show. After watching some of my friends after they did, I never wanted to either.

All nighters aren't "bad" if they help your grades.

I got a ticket in high school for running a red light on my bike.

Sue said...

Guilty of #6 & #8 too! Great list idea .. :)

Mama's Moon said...

Ooof! I'm not even attempting to do a list like this one! If my journal could only talk - man, the things I've done!!! Totally curious about the "rappelled Fisher Dorm" one though...

L^2 said...

I've never watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show either - never really wanted to.
And I've crossed streets on a red light before too, but it wasn't quite the same situation - my guide dog was leading me and according to her it was safe to cross. Plus I had to idea the light was red until I got to the other side of the street, close enough to sort of see the light. :-)

Thanks for visiting my list.

Robin said...

Ummm... What Dana said *glancing around nervously*.

Joyful Days said...

I wish I'd never seen Rocky Horror Picture Show & didn't want to be scum so I decided to share that with a comment.

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

I hadn't seen Rock Horror Picture Show until about a year ago, either! Happy TT!

JennieBoo said...


Ah, what the heck?

You're forgiven!


Never seen that horror film. Is it that bad that you consider it a bad thing? Stealing when you were a kid is I don't think really stealing.
Thanks for the visit.

KC said...

Well I don't want to be scum..
great T13

Karina said...

Great list! Oh, and I've never seen Rocky Horror either, but even worse, I've never seen Star Wars...ACK! ;-)

Happy TT!!

Jenny McB said...

Are you sure you wanted to list all this? Some of the statute of limitations may be good, LOL, fartastic list. I may copy it some day!
Shame, shame for talking in movies, that's the worst thing on the list IMHO.

Qtpies7 said...

I cannot believe how bad you truely are! Shame, shame! But admitting it is the first step.
I swore today. Twice. At my teenager. And I told him to get a job and pay rent if he thinks he can tell me to watch my mouth.
Good thing I answer to God, because He is merciful!

DK said...

Don't put my name in that "scum" catagory! lol (I feel the same way.) Love your list; I don't think you're bad - you're interesting! I'd love to hear more about that Australian adventure... Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Happy TTing!

lissa said...

You lived an adventurous life. Nice list - funny!

Cindy Swanson said...

That's pretty funny about the swear word from the pulpit! :) My dad was a pastor, and he tripped up and said some inappropriate things more than once...usually be accident.

As for number one...duh, haven't we all done that? :)

impworks said...

I liked you till I read #5. What can I say. Now I don't like you any more. Really. Well ok I'll get over it. The rest don't seem so bad. ;-)
