  1. Hehe, fun! Tempted to do this myself.. only because I want to say that I saved a life - my own, lol (kind of funny in hindsight) and met a famous person (Michael Franti who was very lovely and we hugged). Am curious about how you were fired from a job :)

  2. Greetings

    I love your sense of humor :) (I'm laughing)

    Wow you've really had a lot of exposure to the world hey! Interesting :)

    More blessings for the New year.

  3. Okay...that is TOO fun.....you are ever so worldly, m'dear!! ;)

    Will give it a go on the morrow....


  4. very interesting - what you have done and what you *haven't* done! I hope 2010 is a great year for you. :-)

  5. totally cool!
    I feel I've lived such a sheltered life now.
    All the best in 2010 !!

  6. heheh...will have to try this one meself...

    Love that you visited the Vatican but don't ever intend to go bungee jumping!

  7. YAY! I stole it and did it on my blog as well. In the process I discovered I cannot be as boring as I sometimes think I am, if I've done all this stuff! Go me!

  8. Mel - funny, I think, hmmm... so many places still to see... lol

    s'me - excellent! LMAO

  9. He. Where did this come from?

    I'll have to do it while the little one is sleeping...please sleep today...

  10. Why is skinny dipping on there twice?

    I'm tempted to do this myself. This is a pretty good one...

    No snorkeling? Afraid of the water? Or of breathing under water? I did it and that's what freaked me out--that and having fins on my feet.

  11. I decided to play on my blog also...

    Happy New Year!

  12. I also ask why skinny dipping is on there twice, and wonder...

    By bolding it twice, are you admitting to being a repeat offender? :)

    I prefer to swim nude when possible. Less bathing suit up your arse, and more comfort!

  13. I thought about saying yes to skinny dipping once, and no on the 2nd...depends on the location and time...and age??

  14. That's so funny, I didn't even notice it was on twice!

  15. It has been really fun reading everyone's lists and imagining all the stories behind them. I could kick myself those times when someone asks me what I've been up to, and I just parrot out, "Oh, not much...." We are alive! And isn't it amazing? Everyone has a story, and no matter what, they're all so unique and interesting.

  16. What fun, I feel like a know so much about you from that list. I'm going to do it right now.
