  1. I've never:
    ridden a snowmobile
    eaten haggis
    liked lima beans, turnips, or beets
    played slots
    watched American Idol
    had a pedi or mani or a massage

    I have:
    been a bridesmaid
    skied downhill w/o wiping out (and I used to be GOOD)
    found excellent black & white cookies here in my town
    attended a high school reunion

  2. That's it....I know you aren't one for upkeep on toenails, but we must get you a pedi soon. I LUV pedi's....happiness for your feet. And, you could get a french paint, so you don't have peeling pink nailpolish that looks odd. :)

    Whaddya think?

  3. I share several of your nevers.

    My big never is that I've never been to Europe. Hopefully that will change in the next few years.

  4. I've never...

    I've also never...

    hmmmm... I might have to post one of these myself!

  5. Hmmm. I have never been to Vegas either. Or cooked veal. Also I have never watched an episode of "Desperate Housewives."

  6. Haggis rocks. Tastes just like headcheese, which my grandma called by a German word that sounded like "hot-got". We talked about it a lot this weekend!

    We share a lot of nevers. I'll have to think on this.

  7. I've never:

    Eaten Veal or Haggis
    or gotten a tattoo

  8. I have never like the outdoors.
    I have never ridden a horse or a snowmobile
    I have never ridden or driven a motorcycle.
    I have never had any desire to get a tattoo-
    I have never been out of the USA
    And I agree with Historygirlie - YOU NEED TO HAVE A PEDI. Once you have one..you will LUV it

    I have been a bridesmaid for Green Girl--We wore lovely purple dresses.

  9. Ok ~ I draw the line at not having had a pedi ~ you have to go! It's one of the least expensive pleasures a girl can give herself!!

  10. I'm with you on veal and Renee Zelweiger.

    I've never had a mani- or a pedi-

    I've never waxed or been waxed

    I've never worn white in a wedding

    I've never regretted my wedding

  11. I've never:

    heard of black & white cookies (unless you mean Oreos. do you? i want to know because i don't want to miss out on a new cookie to try)

    wanted to eat haggis

    missed one moment of Adam Lambert singing on American Idol

  12. I've never had a cocktail, never smoked pot, never had my ears pierced, never seen a CSI show, never jumped out of an airplane and never been off the continent. I must remedy some of these things. (But which ones?)

  13. I've never

    liked apricots

  14. I've never:

    mowed a lawn
    purchased a lottery ticket
    smoked a cigarette/cigar/doobie/etc
    figured out how to water ski

    That was fun. Thanks.

  15. Fun post! I share a lot of your "nevers."

    Your Wisconsin residency status may be revoked on the snowmobile situation alone!
    Let's start a club for people who haven't seen American Idol.
    Enjoyed a mighty fine black and white cookie at LaGuardia Airport last week. If a cookie and cake had a baby- it would be a black and white cookie!
