the bucket list

The Bucket List has veteran actors Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman playing classic Jack Nicholson (crazy passionate) and Morgan Freeman (cool and wise).

Absolutely loved the movie.

And it would be sooo cool to have loads of money to spend when you're given just several months more to live. Then again, will you have the attitude and energy to really squeeze in some more living in those days?


The Bucket List was started by Freeman's character, a list of things he'd do before he 'kicks the bucket'. Kick the bucket is a euphemism for 'to die'. I also thought the phrase originated from all those suicidal people hanging themselves and using a bucket to stand on, and then kicking it afterwards.

Well, it seems that's wrong. In England, 'The wooden frame that was used to hang animals up by their feet for slaughter was called a bucket. Not unnaturally they were likely to struggle or to spasm after death and hence 'kick the bucket'


I have not made my Bucket List yet. But ever since, my life goal was to 'affect a life for the better' which was why I wanted to become a mother, and I was attracted to teaching and counseling.

Anyway... I've danced many times like nobody's watching... and am loving my husband and son like i've never been hurt. I've sung like nobody's listening and like to believe that i'm living like it's heaven on earth. :)
