99 Things I've Done

I keep seeing this meme floating around of where you have to highlight the things you've done out of this list of 99. I haven't been to Europe so that automatically axes off a bunch of stuff.

I'm tagging:

1) Ian at Or So I Thought
2) Jameil at Half Jameil Half Amazing
3) Citizen of the World at A Little Off Kilter
4) Neil at Citizen of the Month
5) 1969 at Nineteen Sixty Nine

Besides, they are all VERY good bloggers so go pay them a visit if you haven't yet.

This is a fun meme. It's got a lot of interesting aspects.

This meme does make you realize that you have done a lot. Me not so much...Very fun. Hopefully I can do Europe and Times Square in the next five years.

I was reading through this list and thinking it looked like an interesting meme to do, only to get to the end and find I've been tagged with it!
Liz Dwyer said…
It is fun! I was so tempted to tag you but I'll probably try to tag you for something else soon. But if you're down, give it a go!

I know some of the stuff I am NEVER doing. Like killing and skinning an animal... unless there's an apocalypse and I have to try to catch a squirrel because the grocery is shut down, no mas! Not happening! Times Square is fun. It was grittier back in the day when I first went but still fun. I thought Hollywood Blvd. would be like it as far as brightness and hype, but it's not really.

LOL, I meant to come over and tell you today but then I was running around all day and then had to sit through Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer! What a day! Can't wait to see what you've done though.
Hmmm I like this list. I think I've done at least 20 of these things. I wish I could swap out the Paris museum stuff for London.

Hmmm, I need something to blog today. Mind if I use this?? Thanks!!
You have done a lot!

Wait how have you not served on a jury? In L.A. I felt like I was being called all the freaking time. I had to serve once. It was a short trial. Thank god.
Ian Lidster said…
Thanks for thinking of me, dear Liz. Now I don't have to think of a self-generated blog today. Looks like fun.

flower for no reason is the best! i want that! love meteor showers! you've never been on a jury? i've been summoned 3xs (in 6 years) and sat once.
Liz Dwyer said…
Adopt the list and do it on your blog! I wish I could swap the Alamo for Paris or London! :)

Nerd Girl,
Not at all! Go for it!

I've had to report twice and been dismissed both times. Never got out of the waiting area. Knock on wood!

Yes, not having to think too hard about what to write is nice sometimes!

Nope, no jury duty yet. I wouldn't mind having to do it, but I've never made it out of the waiting room at the courthouse.

Since I live in Europe, I've gotten most of those things crossed off my list. But my favorite would have to be going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, where my husband proposed (and I said yes) and thus our oldest daughter is named Paris.

I'm definitely a kindred spirit with the girl scout cookies. In fact, I sold the most in my region one year and won a round-trip to Sea World in San Diego (from L.A) on the train.
