Things I have Done

I’ve been reading other blogs, and I’ve found it leads to blog games (yes CP, it is a better name, if less descriptive). So here’s the list. The game is for each blogger to highlight in bold the things he/she has actually done. I resisted the urge to comment on some of them, as it’s easier to copy that way.  After I was done, I noticed more bold than regular font.  I guess that makes me lucky, or it makes me desperately seeking experiences.  For my regular blog readers- #71- WOOHOO!
Enjoy- and copy!

  1. Wow, looks like you’ve had a rich life. 🙂 This blogame seems to be popular, and I’ve seen some new blogs from following recent spate of these games.

    Here’s a really good question to add to this one: out of all of the ones that you haven’t done yet, which one do you most want to do?

    Think I’ll answer on my blog.

  2. This is a good score, but when I counted mine, I scored 87!

    As for Oz’s question…that will take some thought. How about marrying the Pope? — Oh, oh, that is not on the list. 😉 Also not on the list is visting all the main London airports in a single month. I will do that next month, if everything goes to plan. I think suggesting some more options should be the next exercise. Really though, I would like to get 68. Oh well. C’est la vie.

  5. #100: What exactly is picking up and moving to start over? I mean, do you have to decide where to go and then find a way to do it, or do you just look for a job and wherever it is you go there, or some other definition? Or is “finding a job” just too prescribed and you have to literally pack the car, stop when you run out of gas, and figure that’s the new place?

    To sum up, I feel like Seymour was kind of like this, but then again I’m so risk-averse I’m not sure I’d ever qualify for #100. : )

  6. For me, it was moving to a place that took me away from a relationship that was doing me more harm than good. I had job offers in five cities and I picked the one that was farthest away but still looked like fun (one offer was in Iowa- in a town of 15,000- not fun). I think it’s defined by the desire to start over, and to select a different city for the freshness of it.

    Ask me how well that worked for me. Memphis = 🙁
