Dorothee, if you're reading this, DO IT. you can e-mail me since you still don't have a blog. :P

seriously, do it. I promise to post the camera phone pictures of the cupcakes if you all do it.

nothing like a little bribe-age, eh? now go do it.

and forgive me for my lack of capitalization today. my work keyboard sometimes hates the shift button (or always). Watch... AAAAAAaaaaAAAA I was totally holding it down the entire time. and I can't leave 'I' un-capitalized, so I went back and fixed those. that's the grammar nazi kicking her way through. For reals, I'm going. have a good day!


  1. um, LOVE the list! =) BUT more than that I love Jay-Z!!

  2. I already did 27 activities on your list :) Just got curious and started counting which one of these I already done. Your list is cool! it sort of lets you evaluate your life. I would totally have a list of my own, one of this days.

  3. If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son.

    baha you're the best because you put Jay-Z in a blog post.

  4. I just did # 33. Woohoo! It was beautiful. Although I hear Iguazu in Argentina is better. I did number 64 once and almost died. Turns out I'm borderline anemic. Whoopskies!
