Nerd Bucket List. Newsarama contributor Jill Pantozzi presents the items on her "Nerd Bucket List", which includes two Whedony things to do before dying.

I'm stealing a few of this list.

Also, I have a few nerd ones of my own;
*Get a Buffy tattoo.
*Do a Buffy/Angel tour in California, visit places seen on the shows.
*Have a action figure customizer (probably from btvsfigsforum) make a action figure of me (when I lose a lot of weight. Only has to cost about 50 bucks.)

Already have the nerd tattoos (serenity symbol, All Along the Watchtower notes from BSG, number 144 on my ankle)

Visit Cardif, Wales and take photos at the monument where the Torchwood facility used to be
Visit Torrence, CA and take photos in front of Sunnydale High School and Buffy's house (without getting arrested)
Meet Joss Whedon
Meet David Tennant
....
Get Joss' autograph in my copy of Bite Me. I have lots of autographs in it, but not his. (Or Sarah's but lets not get crazy here.)
Playing the Prisoner at Portmerrion is the only for sure thing I have on my geek bucket list, but its good enough for now.
Living in SoCal does have benefits. I've been to "Sunnnydale" high school twice now. Once at night (creepy!) and once during the day. We actually ended up getting locked in when the gate we went through got closed while we were goofing off taking photos. We thought it might have been the vampires corralling us in.

If you're interested, tons of photos from our Whedonverse location tour in 2009 (Buffy, Angel, Serenity and Dr. Horrible) are here. We're thinking of doing another your this year.

I've gotten to do so many things, I'm not sure what's left on my nerd bucket list. Doing a photo shoot with the cast of Firefly would probably be up there at the top.

Wow...I nabbed a Nerd Bucket List quest without even knowng? Schweet! Guess I had better get the pics up lickety-split, eh missmuffet?

;D

And, just for the record, Torchwood Three's geographic location is Cardiff, Wales (two Fs)

Playing the Prisoner at Portmerrion is the only for sure thing I have on my geek bucket list, but its good enough for now.

Sadly didn't get a chance to head that far north, which is a pity since I carried such a torch for seeing it, but it was a bit too much of a trip for the people I was travelling with. And once again, just for the records, the geographic location of the Village is Portmeirion, Wales.
@danregal, you are so right that living in SoCal helps to get these type of things accomplished. I can't believe I haven't done the tour of Whedonverse Locations (I'll add that) but I have been able to do a few awesome things, the coolest being that I took a tour of the Dollhouse set and even got my own "Treatment".
that's really cool,Jelly, I haven't done many things.
part of my nerd bucket lists is to live to see sandman and good omens hit the tv and visit the wizarding world of harry potter in florida and do the tour in the UK.
Really late to this party, been away, but .... meeting Joss would be so far at the top of my list, nothing else would even come near.
