    You presently find out you have a terminal illness, which will kill you approximately a year from now. The illness will not debilitate you until the very end. How will you spend your final year inhabiting this mortal coil?

    Sex, drugs and rock and roll! Lots and lots of all 3!!!!! Oh, and chocolate and Southern Comfort, good homecooked food. Lots of cuddles with my mum, dad, brothers and of course my kids.

    I would also spend a lot of time scrapbooking for my kids so they can remember me when I am gone - might make a video too.

    Hot air balloon ride, cruise in a Porsche or a Ferrari and a lots of days spent at the beach and partying with all my friends. Basically I will burn the candle at both ends until I kick the bucket! Then I want to die at home, with good hospice care (so my family aren't burdened with it) and then i'll be cremated.

    Oh, yeah and once I found out I was terminal, I would likely opt for palliative care only and stop all treatments that negatively impact my quality of life. I have no intentions of letting chemotherapy kill my body without at least a fighting chance of surviving my debilitating disease. I would rather a great 6 months than an agony ridden 18 months. I would want lots of Lorazepam to help stem the anxiety though.

    Right off the top of my head, the first thing on the list is skydiving while traveling around the world. Meaning, that which each place I'd visit I'd go skydiving if it was available along with all the other touristy type stuff to do there. I figure if I'm gonna die soon, I might as well do some shit that will get the heart pumping. And if the chute doesn't open....well shit...I'm gonna die anyway.....

    Killing spree. If I'm going out, I'm taking a whole bunch of people with me.

    But, seriously, there's not really much exciting I'd want to do. I guess my list would be:

    - Quit my job.
    - Move back home to be closer to my parents and spend some more time with them.
    - Re-watch my favorite DVDs and re-read some of my favorite books.
    - Transform each of my toys at least once more.
    - Eat my favorite meals at least once more.
    - "Retrace my steps" and visit each of the communities where I've lived over the course of my life. Spend some time wandering around the places I've frequented and reminisce a little.

    Nacht you are killing me with this one.

    - Listen to my son laugh as much as possible
    - Listen to my son sing as much as possible
    - Listen to my husband say "I Love You" as much as possible
    - Get over my stagefright and sing for the world
    - not be so self concious and wear clothes that actually fit me instead of all baggy ones
    - Forgive those who have wronged me
    - Forgive myself for the wrongs I have commited
    - Make sure my family will be ok without me
    - Make sure the last image in my head before I die is my son's smile

    Excuse me while I go cry now

    Do the Forrest Gump and just run run run.
    Or buy/steal a boat , hit the ocean and drift away.

    If I was rich I'd go the Christopher Reeve route.

    The hard part would be leaving some kind of legacy.

    Get paralyzed from the neck down? That's a bit of a weird thing to want to do before you die...

    Well, I want to be a movie director when I grow up, so I'd want to make a movie, although that would definitely take more than one year. Other than that, travel to several places in Europe and Asia and get a chance to drive some cool cars.

    I also want to go out doing some sort of heroic act. If I'm going to die anyway, I might as well do some good.
