Excellent list, Kim. And 53 is a good number.

I'm beginning to think that I'm the only person who has never hitchhiked. Or gone skinny-dipping.


You really have never been to Niagara Falls?? We must get you up there!!

I agree with #19...for some reason it was smaller than I thought it would be, too.

Charity B:

What I want is a recipe for those hash brownies! (You have made them by now, haven't you?)

Love your blog and sense of humor. Keep on keeping on, dear Kim.


37/100 for me (and I WILL be stealing this for my blog)... looks like I need to expand my whatsits.


Great bolds.

#57 has piqued my interest...

Ok, I got distracted the first time I came to post a comment when I clicked over to read your hiking, biking, and bears post.

So who did you meet that was famous? And which bone?

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

I bumped into Gilda Radner once, literally, in the lobby of a Broadway theater. And I've broken my collar bone in addition to a myriad of small bones that you can't repair (e.g., pinky toe).


Cool bolds. Wow, so I am not the only person I know who has been stung by a bee inside the mouth - go figure! :)

(And Sandra, seriously, you need to go skinny-dipping at least once in your life, it's very liberating!)
