  1. Cool!
    Do #64 and you can say you have done #88 too...thanks for's fun to see what everyone has done. -I have this week off!

  2. Oh, this is really cool! Your own personal bucket list! I'm going to tally mine up....

  3. I have 56 things out of the 100 done. Very interesting list!

  4. Great. Another list to remind me of how behind I am on EVERYTHING. ;)

  5. Oh you must skinny dip!!!!!!!

    And my hubs is the SAME way about the mint floating around. He drinks his mojito with a straw :)

  6. Yes! You must skinny dip! While eating caviar and holding a snake!

  7. You are so totally fascinating : ).
    Is there anyone alive who has not been stung by a bee? Doesn't that just happen to every one when you are little and you play outside? I read your bachelor post but I couldn't add anything interesting to it, since I didn't watch. I tried to like it for you Pumpkin, but it just never happened for me.

  8. I don't think skinny dipping sounds that appealing...

  9. I think we should add "Go skinny dipping with Hugh Jackman" to the list.

    Whatdya say? Would you be down with that?

    I know I would. :)
