  2. Great list! This was fun...I love reading stuff like this. I still have so much to do (apart from, hopefully, being involved in a lawsuit and perhaps killing my own food...)

  3. I love the list of choices, it's different. I want to know what kind of music you played too. I just noticed you have boston terrier on your list of things to do before you die. You do know what you're getting in to, right? I have three and it's a mad house, I love them, but they're crazy. Especially C, he spent two hours last night screaming at a bowl of brocolli (he likes vegetables). He is such a freak, I think he needs his own blog.
