Another list...'cause I just like these suckers!

Things I have done...

I lifted this from fizzybeverage aka softdrink aka Jill...because sometimes I'm just too lazy to think up my own blog entries! Besides, I too love these lists...they're fun to share because you get to find out all kinds of bizarre little tidbits about your friends!

The things I have done are in BOLD

Only 39 for me. ;)

sandrac:

What a great list! You have had some fun experiences. Except hitchhiking; I think that sounds too scarey!

I'd really like to ride an elephant and do so many other things on that list.

I've only got 50 -- never bounced a cheque, killed an animal OR had a baby!

anne:

Yeah, I don't recommend hitchhiking, I only did a couple times...once being when our ride home from the city left without us :(

Alas I have killed an animal, but not on purpose...hit a raccoon one dark wet night, it was horrible. I watched my grandfather slaughter a chicken once...and yes indeed it did run around without a head for a few seconds. Tres bizarre!!!

Thanks for playing along!

Fun list Anne. You certainly have done a lot more brave things than I have - hitchhiked, sung a solo, been on a speeding motorcycle.
