lame excuse for a blog post...

The object is to copy & paste the list of "99 things" to your blog & bold the things you've done.

(the ones with the asterix are the ones that I can see myself doing or that I would like to try to do before I die. I didn't pick any of the ones that involve travelling overseas because I really don't like flying and can't see myself choosing to be on an airplane for that long. I know - lame. But if I were to see something like The David or The Eiffel Tower in person, I would probably be completely overwhelmed and pass out. Or cry. It's a weird condition/phobia I have.)
